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.
