Uhm. Yeah. Hi. Did I mention I was bad at posting with any regularity? Cause I am.
So, 2010 is done ::kicks that corpse:: and I succeeded in finishing MOST of the costumes I had to do. Serenity didn't happen as the site I use for my boning has been down for over a year.... If they're no longer online I'll kill something. And the person I'm making it for has yet to order the wig extensions. However, I finished all the others including Formal Femme Deadpool and Nightcrawler. I also picked up a last minute character, Otake from House of Five Leaves and got her done except for the wig.
Now into 2011 I've forsworn making any new costumes as I plan to attend Fanime and have to save up for that. I'm already to the point of getting the badge and the plane ticket by the end of this month, so the rest will just be the hotel room and spending money. The good news there is apparently I'm getting slammed with commission work this year. I've already finished three commissions, have three others and we're just in February! So, if this continues I might be able to hit one other out of state con this year. Crossin' digits.
Next on my To Accomplish list is Otake's wig. I'm lace fronting the whole thing, so really would it be Lace edging? It'll be a real challenge for me since it's a traditional Japanese up-do, and I've not done one to date.
After that I have to get my commissions done, one for the end of March, one for Fanime itself. Plus a surprise for said individual. Then we'll be into the summer and I can break the 'not making a new costume' rule. Since I just splurged on 15 yards of material at Denver Fabrics today. But it's okay, commissions will offset the cost. ::glee::
