"The circumstance of this skirt is the size of a 2-man dome tent!" -Bronwen Robbins

I actually did say that yesterday.

Hi everyone! I neglected this poor blog again. I am sorry.

I did get all 3 Sailor Venus costumes done and I wore 2 of them at Anime North 2016.  Why only 2? Because I was sick and because Toronto that week was like walking on the surface of the sun, and unbelievably humid. Like we would have been less wet (the sweat UGH) if we had been on the bottom of the ocean.

Anyway!  I am back in nice rainy not humid New Brunswick and working on a commission for Animaritime at the end of the month.

And here she is:

That's right! Saya from Blood+.  I am excited.  My client even has a twin sister who is a singer.  We are trying to convince her to do Diva next year with her sister.

Anyhoo.  This costume is a hybrid.  The top is by ME!  and the bottom is by McCalls patterns.  Cause why waste all my precious drafting paper on the huge skirt pattern when McCalls already has patterns of what I need?

 So far I have the skirt and lining all sewn together and the choker (times 2 cause I like variety) made.  The sleeves and sash will be done by the end of tonight. Then the top later this week.
