What’s your name?
Jess, Jessie, Jessica, Pryde... whichever floats your boat. :)
Where are you from?
What got you interested in costuming?
Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern, then Lord of the Rings. My first proper costume was Arwen's Chase Dress from Fellowship of the Ring. I call that my gateway costume, because from there I was addicted to costuming. X-Men, Battlestar Galactica, Blade Trinity and many others followed.
How did you find out about The SCF?
My girlfriend, RaptorAdapter on here, brought it to my attention. I'm excited to talk to other superhero costumers!
What’s your favorite character?
Shadowcat and Wind Dancer tie for first place, Mercury comes in third.
What Costume are you currently working on?
- Shadowcat - Astonishing uniform
- Wind Dancer - New Mutants team uniform
- Mercury - Hellions team uniform
- Blondie - Sucker Punch
- Morrigan - Dragon Age Origins
- Kahlan Amnell - Legend of the Seeker
- Abbey Chase - Danger Girl
Probably Wind Dancer and Mercury - I've never made a costume from scratch before and these two are largely identical with a few exceptions in the top, so any advice on making my own patterns, etc, would be greatly appreciated.
What’s your dream costume?
I'm kinda working on it! Astonishing Shadowcat is my faaaaaavorite costume and I'm hoping to do it really right. As opposed to kinda-sorta right like my current costume!
What Cons have you attended / plan on attending?
I have 10 Dragon*Cons behind me, and an Emerald City Comic Con. I'd like to get to MegaCon and SDCC at some point, but D*C is pretty much my true love as far as cons go.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself?
I'm totally calm and totally cool. My calm is exceeded only by my cool, which is total. ;)
Do you have any general questions about The SCF? Where to post a topic? How to post a picture in a thread?
I think I'm okay for now... I lurked around a bit before posting and I'm pretty familiar with message boards. I won't hesitate to ask if I have a duh moment, though!
