Still don't have anything but a ray gun for my pulp space girl costume, but we've been browsing through the shops to see if there wasn't something pre-made that could be modified. We found a nearly perfect one, a Tin Girl Costume (except without the hat). I tried it on, and it's way cute. The skirt's a little shorter than I was wanting, also it's not flared and flowy but tight and clingy, but otherwise, it's pretty near ideal.
And it's also $51.00. Sigh. Not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, but a bit much for our current budget for an outfit I'd only wear once.
I remember having piles of disposable income once-upon-a-time. Alas, those times have passed.
Back to the sewing machine.
- An editing pass on "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest, etc." After a perusal of all the crits that came in, I've come to the conclusion that there wasn't a consensus on whether it was too confusing, too explainy, or just right. Snartleblast. So I'm going with my gut instincts.
