Hey, guys, just wanted to give you an update on how things have been going.
I’ve been busy … too busy.
While I wait for a filming date on my current project, I auditioned for two more roles, one being a GOT parody. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I also got my dreads put in. I think they look awesome.
As far as cosplay, I’m going to Gen Con in August and Kokomo con in October, so I might have to put my Wonder Woman cosplay on the back burner to sew Rylee a new Bjorn shirt and fix my chainmail for my Lagertha cosplay.
And how is that Wonder Woman costume coming, you might ask. Slow. Very slow. I’ve never worked with EVA foam, so I cut out my shield. That’s it. I’m also attempting to use foam to fix my son’s axe that broke at Kokomo con.
In the meantime, sis and I have been hitting the gym hard to get our warrior bods. The gym doesn’t leave much time for anything else, including sewing.
While I should be working on my foam shield, I decided to teach my son how to make props and costumes. He cut the gloves for his Ash costume and I started teaching him how to make shields. This is going to be a Captain America shield.
This week, I’m going to try to get some real progress done on the Wonder Woman cosplay. Between acting, the gym, my son’s Karate and camp, holidays, and work, it’s hard to make time, but we always seem to get our costumes done last minute.
