I've pretty much decided that if I find the right fabrics, I WILL make that Lenneth costume. I'm going to be really picky, though, and hope the Indian fabric collection is still at Jo Ann's. I haven't been there in a while, and while I dont' remember seeing anything that would work, those fabrics are beautiful, and there's bound to be somthing in the right color scheme I can work with.
I'm still giggling at the thought of a Tellah costume. Part of me says it'll be a huge mistake, but a part of me things I'd laugh my ass off and have way too much fun with a fake moustache. Scroll down and click on the Tellah picture It's the best I can find that's close up. I am by far NOT a scraggly old amnesiac mage.. but it seems like somthing I'd have a lot of fun with at any rate.
Since neither of those costumes are anything I could start right now, I've been looking for somthing to do. I found mountains of red bottomweight Celine& I bought to make stupid ammounts of Ed jackets. I haven't felt motivated to make a stupid number of Ed jackets, but I am making one for myself. I'm using McCall's 4314, which is quite possibly one of my favorite patterns ever. (Used for the Yu~ki vest, the Norn dress, etc) apparently, the pattern is no longer in the books, not listed as out of print on the McCall's website, and only the place I linked to for the photo knows it exists. But it's a great pattern D:
Anyway.. I'm making that jacket, adding a hood, and maybe putting some pockets in it. I haven't decided. It all depends on what I decide to do for the lining.
The network it fuxxored, though, so I don't know if I'm going to be able to print out another Flamel stencil for the back symbol... and even if I could, I can't find that one cosplay website in my favorites or anywhere. It's one that applcheeks linked to waaaaayyy back when we were doing bleach costumes, and it had image files for iron-ons of many of the captain's numbers. And FMA D: Hell if I can remember what it was, though.
In any case, on top of that, I've been cleaning house a bit. Thinking mostly about what I can do with the remnants I have to clear up my sewing area. I don't care if I'm sewing like mad for the next few weeks. I need to clear out some of the textile detritus cluttering up the spare room. And unfortunately, Tellah can't do that for me since he's all pinks and lavenders :(
I'm also really starting to hate my new sleep schedule. I'm damn near completely nocturnal now. I was thinking about calling malophyte today, but when I looked at the clock, it was already 11:30 pm. Bugger.
