I wish I could sew.....

I wish I could sew.....
« on: February 21, 2009, 10:48:27 AM »
Man, I wish I could sew.... There are so many costume sites on the web that I don't think I'll get through them all. My brother (xblade42) found some Jedi and other Star Wars sites that give good ideas on making your own or buying already made costumes. His co-worker can sew, so he should be fine. We're not sure what his wife will dress as.... I doubt between the 3 of us that we'll have as many costumes as some of you girls and guys have by yourself. I can't wait to see everybody's personas. It's gonna ROCK!!!! :D p.s. This has inspired me to get on a dang diet and start jogging again. See, DragonCon is good for your health!!!!  heee heeee heeeee....

Make sure if you're using a digital camera, that you bring the charger.  Also you might, depending on the size of your memory card need to bring another.  We take my laptop and downloaded pictures each day, helps to keep from tying up my computer when we get home when we have over 2000 pictures to download.  Plus during down time in our suite I can go ahead and relabel them and post them online.

Good thinking!! I will take my laptop because my camera doesn't have too much memory. Last weekend I was looking at some people's pictures from last year and one person had over 4,000. I made it to about 1/2.. then skipped to the last few pages. I won't be taking THAT many... not that I can foresee....  :)

Heh, some costumes are made out of duct-tape or caution tape!  Even less materials needed there...

Muerandah has bought a sewing machine. Unfortunately she could not get my mother's electric one to work, or my grandmother's peddle one.

I will most likely take my new great sewing machine to DragonCon.  It doesn't take up that much space and you'd be amazed about how many friends you can make on the various boards you belong to if you offer up something like that.  Two years ago I took a steamer, and I had requests out the yingyang from serious friends asking could they come use that.

Not to mention the air mattress inflater machine.
