With 2010 at it’s close, I am excited to see what the new year will bring. A I reflect over the last year I’ve found that 2010 was a good year overall. Sure it had its bad times, but there were pleasant times as well. I was able to make four costumes for myself as well as for others. I was also able to make new friends, meet lots of awesome people, and become a better seamstress. In the grand scheme of things, I am happy with how 2010 went.
But this post isn’t just about reminiscing 2010, it’s about looking forward to 2011 as well. This new years gives me a chance to make more friends, acquaintances, and cosplays. I am excited as I think about what I hope to accomplish this next year. Mind you, these are not resolutions. There is no need to make resolutions that I will forget and not accomplish. Instead these are goals with game plans that I hope to accomplish in 2011.
My goals for next year are simple and attainable. Though they may take lots of time and/or finances, I know that I can accomplish them if I really try hard and work toward their completion. It may not be easy, but I am up to the challenge.
First on my list of goals is to make at least three new acquaintances this year. Whether that be at the fabric store, a con, or just on my way to a photo shoot, I know my goal is attainable even if I am on the introverted side.
Second on my list is to make at least four new costumes/cosplays. With my nigh constant additions of costume/cosplay possibilities, it should not be hard to pick out some suitable prospects. As I’ve said in previous posts, I already have a definite and planned cosplay list for this year. As always, it will change in some way or ways, but I plan to keep it pretty close to the following list as possible. Of course, time and finances will play a deciding role in whether or not I am able to make any of the below listed costumes/cosplays.
|Vorfeed from Lost Universe|
|Akari Mizunashi from Aria the Animation (Summer Uniform)|
|Maria Ross from Fullmetal Alchemist (State Alchemist Uniform)|
|Toph Bei Fong From Avatar:The Last Airbender (either her Earth Nation outfit, her Ba Sing Se dress, her noble dress, or her final dress)|
|Sophia Forrester from Last Exile (Vice Captain Uniform)|
|A princess dress of some sort|
|Lacus Clyne from Gundam Seed (either her first dress, civilian dress, captain’s dress, and/or an artwork version)|
|Kaylee Frye from Firefly or Serenity (Mechanic Outfit)|
|Raven from Teen Titans the animated series (White Version)|
|Nausiccaa from Nausiccaa of the Valley of the Wind (End Outfit)|
|Sophia Forrester from Last Exile (Orange Dress)|
|A female Final Fantasy character or two (so far Aerith and/or Porom)|
|And I know there’s at least a couple others I can’t think of yet|
|Others as time and finances permit|
I will include a couple picture albums of my planned and possible cosplay lists below.
