Lately my focus has been on costumes for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, which at the time of this writing is 11 days away. I have had my 4 day pass for MONTHS and am looking forward to it with growing anticipation.
A couple of other people I know are dressing as Jedi this year, and I was convinced to make a Jedi costume to join them. I went with the blue robe because I found the photos by hapajedi
which feature a Jedi Master with blue robes, and was inspired. I like the traditional look, and am still hoping to finish a brown robe someday, but I like to be different as well. Blue is different.
The other project that I wanted to do is Oliver Queen's hood from Arrow, which I finished today. I love the show, and I really like his look. And the costumer in me took one look at his costume and said 'yeah, I can make that.' So, I did.
I swear the people that make that show have it out for costumers, though. Finding pictures of the front of his clothing is not hard. Finding pictures of the back is damn near impossible. Eventually I did, but it was not easy.
And now that Olly's Hood, and my Jedi Robes are done, I am out of projects. I could (and probably should) finish the brown robe and the brown tabbard for the Jedi outfit... but I kinda want to find something else to do. I have 10 sewing days left, I could do something with that.
Or I could get back to work on SCA projects.
