Making a pattern for Thorin’s bellbottom jumpsuit.

In my world, this makes total sense.

In my world it also makes sense, thus it’s been confirmed sensible. I am quilting sleeves and thinking of creative kazoo storage.

seems legit guys. seems very legit.

Nope, stop by Thursday night for kazoo pickup!

Holy crap, this costume is almost done and I am excessively happy with it. Full costume test will have to wait until I have help, the armor sticks on the robe fabric and I need assistance.

"I can probably churn this costume out in no time!"

TODAY’S THRILLING SEQUEL:
"I can still probably churn this costume out in no time!"
(I think while watching the machine embroider hundreds of tiny and unnecessary snowflakes for half an hour)

I’ve never understood how people change so much @_@ My shit always has too much makeup for that

I have to plan things out.  It’s costume science!  For Friday, Caranthir and Thranduil have essentially the same makeup and the same contacts and ears, so nothing to do there except touch-ups and stick on Thranduil’s wig.  Saturday, Arwen and Thranduil have the same contacts and ears, and I can probably do my glam makeup over whatever I’ve already done for Arwen (if not, Arwen makeup is easy to remove), then just put on Thranduil’s wig once again.  Finally on Sunday, both versions of Loki will have the same hair and makeup and contacts, so I’ll only need to do touch-ups while changing.  Depending on how things go time-wise and how elrohare and I are feeling about prosthetics at that point, we may put on the elf ears for wedding costumes as per the art.

So yeah  have to put things in a specific order based on wigs and elf ears.  Thranduil always has to be my last costume of the day because the pros aide for his wig sticks in my hairline and makes a huge mess.  Arwen can’t be done on the same day as Loki because her half wig kinks up the back of my hair, while Loki’s godawful hair glue crusts up the front, so neither of them can go before the other without a shower in between.

Yep.  Science.

I was like “Are you kidding me?” thinking you’d done all that amazing work just to cover it up… But then I read the description & calmed myself down. I love watching the process, than you for sharing!

Don’t worry I also hand sewed a bunch of pearls onto the part of Thor’s collar that’s hidden by the overlapping other side of the collar, so I cover up work for no apparent reason all the time.

Shit I still need to do for DCon, under a cut because it’s a long list of shit I still need to do for DCon.

Ten days until I leave for Dragon*Con.  Throw today’s unfinished costume on the dressform over top of yesterday’s unfinished costume because the couch is already a huge pile of other unfinished costumes.
