Self indulgence through sewing.

So lets get this rolling!

I figured I should start out with some older costumes. When I was little, my mother worked as a seamstress, and for a time had her own shop making custom wedding dresses. While I helped her with the pinning, straight seams, and ironing, I wouldn’t say I knew how to sew. It wasn’t until High School that I caught the cosplay bug and started urging her to teach me how to sew in earnest. Here are some of my favorite costumes my mother and I made together during that time:

Belle from Beauty and the Beast

Shelinda from Final Fantasy X

Princess Leia from Star Wars: A New Hope

Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz

Yeesha from Uru: The Ages Beyond Myst

Ahhh that’s a time warp for me.  🙂  It’s like hauling out embarrassing baby photos.
