As this LJ is dedicated mainly to my costuming hobby, I'll just fill you in on that. Although I always enjoyed dressing up and Halloween as a child, I was bitten by the costuming bug around the time the Star Wars prequelscame out in theatres (1999). There were sooooo many cool costumes, and I wanted to learn how to make them. So I asked my Mom for help, since she is an accomplished seamstress/quilter/spinner. She got me started, gave me a sewing machine and basic essentials and tips whenever needed. My husband was also a great help--he supports me in my costuming 100%--as he is into costuming and prop building as well. After attending the Star Wars Celebrations, I decided to expand my costuming horizons by recreating costumes from other movies like 'Indiana Jones' and 'Moulin Rouge!' Now I just costume whatever strikes me as interesting. I love making jewelry, too, which comes in handy when accessories and headpieces are needed. Making little costumes for my toddler is a new joy for me, and I hope so much that she enjoys them as much as I enjoy making them. I have made so many true friends through this 'obsession,' and I hope to continue for many years to come!!!
