Costume Construction, Kate's Costumes, Random

No Delusions of Grandeur Here!

After a pretty successful trip last Friday, I picked up most everything I needed to finish Vala’s ‘Origin’ dress.  I’ve finished the bodice mock-up but am now seconded guessing

Fabric for Vala/Sallis’s ‘Origin’ Dress

parts of it as I tinker with it and figure out the best way to put it together.

Since we will be closing on our house this Friday, I have no delusions that this will get done for Halloween.  The good news is that I have everything to get this done once we get moved!  And a lot of you costumers out there can understand how hard it is to find fabric you’re happy with for a costume, once you’ve over that hump it’s easier going.  🙂

A great couple has invited us to a party Saturday night and since we’ll be cleaning Friday night and cleaning/moving things in on Saturday, the costumes we’ll be wearing will be very low maintenance.  My OD off world stuff is handy, so that’s probably what I’ll throw on.  I’d love to wear Qetesh or something a little more elaborate, but realistically, I don’t have time to get all that on (more specifically, do my hair!).  It’s all good though, we’ll have fun.

I am excited to get this dress finished.  I’m happy with the material I’ve chosen to use I just need to tweak a few areas of the bodice and achieve the same look.  It’ll get done in between getting moved in and the end of the year.

P.S. For the record, I could totally get this done within a week if we didn’t have the house closing and all the craziness that goes with it right now!  😉

About Kate, who is becoming Vala or Aeryn (depending on the day)

I'm a costumer, seamstress and new Mom that enjoys the challenges of recreating costume seen on screen, as well as wearable garments. There's lots I could tell you about myself, but we'll save that for another day. ;-) (aka: HothGirl)
