So what does a body do when they finish up a year-long blogging project? Why start up another one, of course!
I've been costuming for over 20 years, and up until about 7-8 years ago, it was all with thrift store finds that I hand altered. But then a friend of mine gave me my first sewing lessons, and a monster was born. I bought a machine and started making my outfits from scratch.

So I decided my next project will be 12 costumes in 12 months.
First priority will be outfits for this year's Steamcon, followed by Norwescon, and I WILL enter the masquerade this year. (Plus, Patricia McKillip is the author guest of honor! Squeeeee! Which books to get autographed....?) And then to wind up the year, maybe a new outfit or two for the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire. I may even break down and attempt something Elizabethan, although I've never liked the period. But you learn a lot working outside your comfort zone, and it would be a challenge for me.
