Thought I’d attempt to jump on the blogging bandwagon as I embark on more adventures in costuming!
This blog will be devoted to my continual work and re-creation of costumes from Stargate SG-1, more specifically, the costumes of Vala Mal Doran.
I know, I know…either your love Vala or you don’t love her so much BUT I’m a fan – especially of her more fitted outfits. Some great friends really, really introduced me to SG-1 before Vala was brought on the series and I always struggled with what costumes to create. The BDU’s just hung like a potato sack on me and wearing a female nox costume or a hak’tyl was fun but not the same as being ‘part of a team’. So, imagine my excitement when they brought a dark-haired female character with fitted BDU’s on the show…much more my style (and hair color)! So began my journey of adopting Vala as ‘my’ Stargate character.
As time permits, I will post pictures of the previous Vala costumes I’ve created (I have several) along with what I’m currently working on as I make progress. Think of this as my brainstorming/salvaging my sanity blog as I create. 😉
Hopefully this won’t sound like the ramblings of a mad woman when she gets frustrated putting a costume together!
