Bioshock Infinite

My Elizabeth costume, as worn at PAX. This costume was made from blue velvet and white bridal satin, with petersham and piping trim on the corset. The corset is boned with spiral and spring steel. It's like wearing a bear hug. For hours on end.

Pokemon hoodies

Pokemon Hoodies, or How I Came to a Fuller Understanding of the Joys of Ultra Heavyweight Interfacing.

These were made for the Pokecrawl Pokemon-themed bar crawl at PAX East, Vaporeon for myself and Sylveon for my husband. I let him pick, and that's what he wanted. For practical reasons, I did hoodies instead of kigurmi onesies.

These were fun to make, and an enjoyable departure from my usual practical street clothes sewing. (They make me missing sewing stuffed animals, too.) I got prodigiously drunk at the bar crawl. It was great.
