Lady Thor full body shot! Yay!

After a roller coaster evening last night this was the final shot of the evening.

Still debating if I want to bead the bottom.

what a goddess! you look absolutely gorgeous, and i love how it flares out at the bottom! ❤ v

thewindysea:

All together as Lady Thor. Oh god!

omg!!! i love the chains! Cx

thewindysea:

Hey look. Lady Thor progress.

The dress pattern I chose (mainly because it had the shape at the bottom) is a wedding dress pattern. So the back of the dress was a sheer lace. Instead of going with a solid piece, I decided to go with a red chiffon. A little nervous about it. But here’s hoping I don’t look terrible.

My lovely friend errydayimpufflin is helping with the fit of the bodice tomorrow.

Ah! So close!

PS: Thank you toughtink for such an amazing design. I hope this lives up to your art.

i can’t wait! i’m sure it will look lovely finished! c8

Sorry for the horrible quality and the dirty mirror, but I’ve been wanting to share my progress for some time now and can’t get someone else to take the picture.

The back of Maria’s dress is all done! The front is too, but that’s not as interesting as the back. It comes down waaaaaay lower than I’d intended, but I don’t care! I’m not redoing the entire thing just for that. When the sleeves and lining get put in it’ll (hopefully) sit a lot better.

Oh, and because of the slight stretch of the illusion fabric on the back (yeah, I’m not talented or patient enough to make it a true backless dress), NO ZIPPER NEEDED! I just have to be careful when putting it on/taking it off. Huzzah!

wow, it’s so pretty!! the illusion fabric is a pretty ingenious solution, too! i just looove me some low back dresses. XD

this is really amazing work, though. and it’s so fun to watch your progress. great job!!

i see some adorable avengers dresses mixed in there!! :D

Maria now has the SHIELD eagle! I was really nervous about this since I’ve tweaked the proportions two dozen times or so (no, seriously) and have only done this kind of stitch once before (on the Green Lantern emblem on prom!Aya, which was nowhere near this scale). But I think it turned out pretty nicely even with a couple of minor hiccups.


Next up is the second line of piping under the eagle, then the tail feathers.

P.S. I’m sharing the second pic because even the inside stitching looks pretty. Shame it won’t be seen at all once it’s lined, but eh.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So one of my highlights of this past weekend was randomly meeting another tumblr hopper at HeroesCon! We were in line to meet Kelly Sue DeConnick and we were complimenting our respective pin-up renditions of Captain America (her) and Robin (me). Somehow the conversation got turned to the food festival happening down the road and I mentioned that I was going to stop by it briefly to dance to my friend’s swing band, which was playing there. That’s when we discovered that we’re both avid swing dancers, so of course we had to go dance together!

It’s so wonderful to meet a kindred spirit- a sister seamstress, nerd, and dancer? Totally awesome.

This was one of the highlights of my HeroesCon weekend.

When cosplay and swing dance collide!

Alyjack is so adorable!

what adorable cosplays!! i gotta say i am a fan of brunette!cap (but i’m probably biased).
