2016 Photoshoot: Jareth

This costume was actually the main reason for that photoshoot weekend!
 I made this for Costume College 2015, but never actually finished it with a correct necklace/symbol and his chest piece. AJ also didn't completely finish her costume for that year, so we decided to make this photoshooting weekend the goal to get them done!

2016 Photoshoot: Jedi & Vilya


On another day we did two of my semi original outfits.
In 2008 I made an original Jedi, based a bit on Luminara Unduli/Barriss Offee. It's not really a feat of construction or anything, but since we were already taking pictures and I didn't have any it worked.

The other outfit was made in 2005 for a masquerade entry, the three of us were meant to be Elvish personifications of the three rings of power from Lord of the Rings. I was Vilya, the ring of air. As Elrond's ring, I based my design basically on a mishmash of his movie costumes just in all white.

2016 Photoshoot: Ayame and Hotohori

Oh man, I've had these posts sitting half finished in my drafts for awhile now.
Going to try to get back into the swing of posting with several "catch up" posts from 2016 (I don't even know what happened to blogging in 2016!)

So first up, back in September AJ & I took a few days off too photoshoot old costumes so we'd have pictures before tossing or repurposing them.
The timing kind of sucked for real life reasons, but I went ahead and did it and here are the results.



On day One we shot Ayame from Fruits Basket, which I made in 2006, wore for literally 2 hours in 2007, and has been in a bin ever since.
We also shot Hotohori from Fushigi Yuugi, made in 2005 dear lord.
