SLC Comic Con!!

Captain Marvel and Captain America selfie.
Bucky jacket, MK II. Not bad for a single days work.

Magical engineer hubby to the rescue!

The serger is working!!!!! Still going to be sewing non-stop but at least I will have the serger!

Personal Project Runway

So I pulled Bucky’s (p)leather jacket out of the closet and discovered the cat and shredded part of the shoulder…tried to run it through the serger and fix it…

….and the serger started making really funny stitches, enough that the whole jacket needs to be redone.

Currently trying to get the serger working properly again, but it looks like I’ll be re-constructing the entire jacket in black twill tomorrow. Probably with my sewing machine. Hence project runway. We leave Wednesday afternoon and I have other costumes to finish up. So…yeah. Cross your fingers and send a little luck my way.

4 days until the Con in SLC

I’ve got 2 wigs to style, Widow and Bucky.

Bucky needs a belt/chest harness thing…Maybe knee pads, if I have the time.

Captain America needs finishing of the Stripes applique, plus 2 patches.  Belt needs attaching to clasp.  Clasp and shield hook need gesso/paint.  Straps made for shield hook.  Boot covers.  

And Storm Shadow needs his gloves hemmed. Captain Marvel just needs fixin’ and a new belt emblem if I find myself with time.

…This list always seems like 80% shorter in my head.  So much to do.

I changed the date— this would be right after BW finishes her training and before WS is put in cryo for having super sexy Soviet sex with her (HOLY ALLITERATION, BATMAN).

I’m so happy to have gained new followers and friends who enjoy Marvel comics or even the films :D It’s great to see a fandom explosion for these two. AGAIN, FINGERS CROSSED FOR THE MAXIMOFFS!

Hope you like it! <3 Jess

Don’t be afraid to start over from scratch. If you don’t like what the end product looks like don’t let the hours you spent on it force you to keep it. Rip seams. Re-do hems. Go out and buy more fabric. All the work will be worth it for a cosplay you’re proud of.

This is important:

Petition to recognize Autism Speaks as a hate group and revoke it’s non-profit status

If you don’t know about the acts of Autism Speaks, I encourage you to learn of their wrongdoings here, here, and here

PLEASE signalboost, this is rather important

Please consider signing this.  I have loved ones who are on the Autism Spectrum and I’ve worked with a lot of kids with Autism when I taught special ed.  Autism Speaks more or less works to eradicate people with Autism and make them “normal”.  They are not in the business of helping individuals with Autism or their families.
