Let's see...what have I been up to the past year...
I created a [Classic] Battlestar Galactica bridge blue uniform/dress uniform for my husband in May 2011. I also created a tan Warrior tunic and pants set for a customer at the same time.
I created two snow speeder pilot jackets and soft helmets
I made a Jedi tunic, tabbards, and obi
I made 4 X-wing flight suits
I just completed another set of snow speeder pilot soft helmets, but I think I was in such a rush to mail them out (he leaves for Star Wars Celebration VI at the end of this week) I forgot to take pictures.
I also made my favorite gown from the movie "Titanic": Rose's boarding gown. I had been wanting to re-create this gown since 1998 and I've had the fabric for it since about 2007. I figured the 100th anniversary of the maiden voyage/sinking of Titanic would be the perfect time to create it. I was going to go to the "Titanic Artifacts Exhibit" at the Henry Ford Museum July 28th, 2012 so I decided to try to get my outfit finished by then. I made a 1910s corset to go under it in about a week (my first ever attempt at a corset).
I didn't have time to make a slip, but one I had seemed "Edwardian enough", so I used that. Then, the following week, I set out to alter the patterns I had picked up to create my skirt and jacket. I didn't get the tie or blouse finished, so I just used stand-ins (the tie is from my "MIB" costume!). I did create my own broach/tie tack. I purchased accurate earrings from Karen's Romance on eBay (well, accurate except I got the pierced version rather than the clip on like Kate wears in the movie). The hat is too small, but it was a stand in until I can afford a more expensive Kentucky Derby style hat. My Mom gave me this one, but it was red, so I spray painted it purple. I got the bow fabric from eBay. I plan to upgrade my gloves to real kid leather and I want to include a parasol as well.
Here are pictures of me from the museum:
I also paid for the souvenir photograph that was taken of me inside the exhibit standing on the full-scale replica of the Grand Staircase (it was much more gorgeous in person, the picture doesn't do it justice).
I am slated to start working on a couple toddler reborn dolls for my Mom and then I'll be finishing a black TIE pilot flak vest. Then, it's on to a reborn of Jack Dawson from the movie "Titanic" (if you'd like to see that when it is finished, hopefully sometime in September, you can visit my reborn blog.) I also have a full Jedi costume in the "queue". So, I'll be busy for some time!
