Sneak Peek

Friday, September 2, 2011


SO. EXCITED.



P.S.

I made that cuff bracelet from an old belt, bracelet, and gears, and it's now my favorite part of my entire costume. I may never take it off.

  3. Looks awesome! Have a great time!

    And don't forget to post the details and any tutorials for the DIY parts-- this blog is a continuing source of ideas (not to mention covetousness) for me. I recently made a smashed penny necklace that I have gotten tons of compliments on, thanks to your inspiration!

  30. Good golly that looks beautiful. From what I can see, the color scheme looks absolutely lovely. And I adore that weaved belt! I hope there'll be full photos in the future if it looks that great from such a close up shot. I wish I could pop by Dragon*Con to see in person (along with all the other cool things going on there, lol), but alas this Arizonan can't be up and leaving state any time soon.

  31. Beautiful! I can't wait until the FULL preview! It will be a him and hers, right?

  32. Aw, come on! That's such a tease!

    You are obviously going to look AMAZING just from seeing that tiny little bit of your outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  33. GRRL!!! Why aren't you making stuff to sell on Etsy? I'd buy that in a HEARTbeat! :D

    But I gotta ask, what do you use to adhere all these awesome gears and bling to your projects? I loved the flux capacitor pin modification, for example, but have no idea how you made the lovely corner embellishments stick. Inquiring minds (who like to lift ideas and copy things) want to know!!!

  34. Okay... that bracelet/cuff is just awesome!! Very cool - can't wait to see the rest!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow that is a beautiful bracelet! And that leather lattice detail in what I assume is a belt is a great touch! Can't wait to see more pics of the entire outfit! Hope you stay cool & comfortable :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Such a perfect teaser photo! Can't wait to see the whole thing.

    I had an idea though: that button on your vest looks ideal to be replaced with one of your domed pennies you made for your curtains. Just a thought!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh come on! Need...to...see...pretty costume!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a great teaser photo. I can't wait to see the rest!

    I had an idea though: Looks like that button on your vest would be perfect to replace with one of your domed pennies you made for your curtains. I hope that doesn't sound too stalker-ish, being all I know what your house looks like! haha.

  39. Hot dang! I can see why :) Love the teaser - I'm going with some kind of Amelia Earhart thing ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm going to be super jealous, aren't I?

    Yep. I'm going to be so jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Amazing! You have such a good eye. I never would have come up with such a great design!

    ReplyDelete

  48. That. Is. Awesome.

    I, like the others, can't wait to see the whole outfit...I think we might be *as* excited as you are. Living vicariously through you on this one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, Jen, I have said it before... I love you! :)
    So sad I didn't plan better and am not there AGAIN. Please post full pictures for those of us too ADD to get our priorities straight. And who have the creativity of a lump of coal. But skillz. Someone give me an idea and I can make it. So thank you for sharing. Now just start selling "kits" for assembly with some raw materials and an idea.

  50. If I had a bracelet that awesome. . . I might actually wear a bracelet. I love it. Can't wait for the rest!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I get the feeling you're going as a steampunk princess (which, given what I know about you, seems entirely appropriate). Love the bracelet.
    Any chance we'll get a picture of you in full costume afterwards? Please? :) At least the full costume?

    ReplyDelete
  52. *dies* Wow. That is one stunning cuff. I'd never take it off either!

    I have been scanning the pics posted so far by friends for you in the background. ^_~

    I cannot wait to see the rest of the outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh, wow! Super cool! I can't wait to see pics, and a tutorial for that cuff. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Pretty darn amazing, Jen! Hope you and John have a wonderful time at the CON!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ooh, pretty. With the wings and crown it reminds me of the jewellery at this etsy shop, aka the creater of the bizenghast graphic novels. Which are delightfully creepy/gothic/victorian/ruffly. I can't wait to see more of your costume pictures, the skill and perseverance to put towards creating is very inspiring :).

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm going to put my money on Steampunk Wonder Woman. Very. Cool.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I know you've probably had a great time and don't want to leave, but I can't wait to see your pictures. Hurry up and get home, will ya!;-) (But be safe.)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ok, I've been looking at this on and off for a while. You need a cool watch fob. (also, have you ever seen those jars of old meatal antique buttons at antique stores? Think about all different buttons.)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I can't wait for pictures form Dragon Con!!!! Hurry up and come back!

    ReplyDelete
  60. You all looked awesome! It was great to see you. I will email you our picture after I get home, get unpacked, get the pictures off the camera... (sigh)

    Vm: remosie - i have remosie that I didn't get to see all the Dragon*Con panels I wanted to, but the lines were too long

    ReplyDelete
  61. I had that exact belt! I say had, because although I loved it, it fell to bits. Watch out for that, because I've not found another one since!

    Looking fabulous though missie, hope you had a wonderful time.

    WV: poodip. Need I say more?

    ReplyDelete
  62. GOOD GOD.

    the suspense is killing me!!
