So, instead of bombarding you with crazy long lists of stuff that is already done, I'm going to continue on with only that which is not yet done or is recently updated upon, and then i will rid you of suffering through that which is in the past. To that end:

In addition, I need to start on Harry Potter lolita NOW, so I am going to do these in tandum and see how that goes. Wish me luck.

I am, of course, Ravenclaw, and we are going off already existing beautiful artwork:

There will, of course, be some modification to this art in my costume...
 

I do not have a full costume breakdown yet of what needs to be done, because I am still figuring that out, but here's my list of the peices involves and I will add breakdown as I go, I think. I have the vest part done because I am already starting that process so I can go for a fitting on Saturday, when I meet up with my group. Here's what I have so far:

A little proof

I realize I've shown you lists for the last 6 weeks, and I apologize for that! Here's a progress shot! I'm actually pretty close! Holly is making all if the collars, and the bows are done, so we're not far off! Then there's some tedious work in the shield and the headsets, but we'll take that as it comes!

Good news and bad news

Bad news: I'm not on Schedule! Even with 2 weeks of added time! Boo me!
Good news: I quit my job for a variety of reasons, the worst of which was that it wasn't what I actually do, so I wasn't happy about what I was doing. This means I have at least a few, possibly a LOT of weeks of sewing capable time! YAY me!

I fully intend to do mad work on this next week and then possibly start on the Harry Potter costume as well since that needs to get done real soon now and I have been dodeling. Here's hoping that i am super productive!
