The past year was a rough one health-wise, so it’s a bit of surprise to me writing this post and tallying up my costumes how much I got done! That makes me optimistic for what I can achieve in 2019, even though I’m going to be reasonable in order to keep myself sane and less stressed.
I went to the Legion of Honor museum wearing my 18th century mauve silk dress in February, which I started in January.
My other January project was to make this steampunk belt and tea holster.
At Silicon Valley Comic Con in April I premiered my Vice Admiral Holdo costume, my proudest achievement of the year! (I also joined the Rebel Legion with it!)
In April I wore a Victorian/Edwardian-inspired bicycling outfit to a train ride and BBQ.
May was a mermaid month, with a tail and shell bra.
In June I wore a vintage-style First Order Uniform, inspired by Star Wars.
For fun, in June/July I made a medieval fantasy princess dress.
In July I wore Crimson Peak 2.0 (an outfit that I made in 2017 but upgraded to wear to Costume College).
It included a big lilac petticoat.
During the summer I also made myself a cotton novelty dress.
In October I wore this Gibson Girl dress to a GBACG event.
I also made a big trained petticoat for it.
My last big project was this 1830s Romantic day dress, worn to the Dickens Fair in December.
I also made a blouse using a Wearing History pattern.
I’m surprised at all the projects from this year and look forward to more! On the horizon I’ve got some more Star Wars outfits, an 1890s sweater, an 18th century dress, a 1920s robes de style, and a lot of vintage-style daily wear.
