On Labor Day I worked in a self-imposed sweatshop and got my costume mostly finished. Not only was I making one full-length coat, it’s all lined–so really, I made two. I had about nine hours to regret my decision to make a costume, but in the end I’m happy with how it turned out.
Here it is “staged”on the dress form, minus the hooks and eyes I need to sew to get it to close in front. There will be a lot more accessories and a big belt, too, if I can find one in the next two days:
And here it is seconds after completion in the final moment of truth–will it fit? Is it cool?
Yes to both, I think. It’s fun to wear, even over hiking shorts and a yoga top.
I realize I’ve turned the “vintage” photo filters on these up to 11 and they’re just bad sewing room pics, but never fear: the company photographer is also attending Comic Con so there will be more action shots to post after the weekend.
Holy leather dominatrix outfit, batman! 😉 Can’t wait to see it in action!
Nice work, Karen… I think it looks cool, at least! Anne and I will be there all three days, so I’ll keep my eyes peeled for you… (we won’t be in costume ourselves, if that helps you spot us…)
Thank you! Look for the 20 x 30 foot Cricut booth and you’ll see me, probably. 🙂
