I can’t believe it has taken me this long to write about Dragon*Con and how my costumes turned out!  I have sat down to write this post at least 6 times but I kept getting pulled away to finish other things.  I am going to make a decided effort to get back to regular posts because when I’m not blogging about my projects it just feels like something is missing.

So back to Dragon*Con.  I made two costumes for Dragon*Con this year: Batwoman from the DC Bombshells and Louise Belcher from Bob’s Burgers.  I was very happy with how the Louise costume turned out but sadly none of the pictures turned out. 🙁  I’m pretty bummed about that but my husband promised to take some more so we just need to take an afternoon and get a few more pictures so I can post some.  It was a super fun costume to wear and I’m looking forward to taking it tome more cons.

My Batwoman costume turned out great and we did get some good pictures of it.  I based the costume off of pictures of the uniforms of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and pictures of the costumes from the movie A League of the Own.

The cover art doesn’t show the front of the costume so I based that off the 40’s AAGPBL uniforms and custom digitized an embroidery design for the emblem.  I plan to make the file available in my etsy shop before the end of September.

The only thing I really want to fix is the belt.  I’d really like to make a red leather belt like the original AAGPBL uniforms.
