Borderlands: TPS Cosplay - Nisha - Phase 1: In Which I Sewed Things
UPDATE 2/6/23: You can tell by the detail of my posts which projects I really cared about. The difference between these posts and, you know, the mood blanket challenge, that I was doing at the same time is very stark. This re-reading and checking the formatting that I'm doing has seriously been wild.
Finally, some headway with my Nisha cosplay! I predict that this will be one of my daytime costumes at Dragon*Con this year as it's probably best that I don't prance around the 90-degree daytime heat in Atlanta in my crochet Sailor Saturn. I believe this will be suitable for daytime?
- a 10-year-old pair of jeans with a big hole in them
- a brown corduroy jacket almost as old as the jeans
- Uggs, because who doesn't have a pair of these in the back of their closet?
- a very old, real leather hat that belonged to my dead mom that is probably from the 80s that was grossly misshapen from things being put on top of it
- a white tank top
Some weeks passed and I got around to ordering the fingerless gloves and a black sports bra to go underneath my tank top. The last piece I need is a belt, but I'm planning on making a belt with scrap fabric. I don't need a functional belt, I just need a thing that looks like a belt and to make my belt loops look larger.
Some more weeks passed and I decided to spend an entire day sewing. I literally did all of the major sewing that I needed to do for this (I think). I'll probably have to do some very minor and speedy sewing when I get around to the belt.
I wound a bobbin and a disaster immediately happened...
