Hi there! My name is Kate, and I've been cosplaying technically since my first con back in 2005 (FanimeCon in San Jose, CA), but I really started in 2007 when I went as Sailor Saturn. I have no sewing skills to speak of, though I do enjoy making props and love the challenge involved. However, I hope to change that and learn sewing so that I will be able to make many of the dream cosplays I have come true.
"And how I missed this comment, I don't know! XD Yeah, I've had one for ages, but but never actively used it (though I am trying now, since I am trying to make more costumes and props, even if I can't show off the latter unless I go Celestial). And thank you! It did work out very well, though my grandma and I added some little hooks in between the buttons so it wouldn't gap (like what you did behind the buttons, which I love you for. Best idea ever.), but otherwise it worked out really well ^^ I hope you find your geta soon (because it always sucks having to replace stuff) and look forward to doing a photoshoot!! ^^"
"Hahaha! Found you! Didn't know you had an ACP. SO yes, we do need to do a photoshoot together. Either by replacing my lost geta or through the chance of finding them when I move. This costume really looks amazing on you. I'm so glad it turned out being a perfect fit! Did everything wear ok?"
