A decision made

With the lead up to April set to be superbly busy (between getting ready for JAFA and Supanova), I have decided to err on the side of caution for my final supernova costume. That being said, after looking through the options in my last post, I eliminated anything too time consuming or complex. In the end I have come down to the sister of the dark costume. It is basically just a heap of red fabric. A little generic perhaps, but neat none-the-less and it has weapons that I think are rather cool. I will keep you posted on the progress, but as for now, I guess I will need to make a shopping list of what fabric I need and head on out shopping.

I'm thinking that I might save the Khalan Season 2 (Legend of the Seeker) costume until the ACG Ball. Being that it does involve a leather / pleather corset that has quite a lot of work in it - not to mention all the detailing on the skirt and the full lacing on the bodice sleeves, I think I would like to dedicate a lot of time to it so that I can be proud of my accomplishment.

  1. Found your blog while looking for pictures of Kahlan.

    Let me know when you start constructing the Kahlan 2x08 costume! I'm working on mine this month, hopefully in time for Phoenix Comicon. It's been a long time coming (months and months, and I won't even tell you how many online and brick-and-mortar retailers I searched trying to find that brown fabric!). I'll eventually post pictures on my Cosplay profile:
