I completed my first costume (a Jedi Knight) in 2004, and, having immediately fallen in love with the hobby, I've found myself putting more and more time in to replicating science-fiction and comic book characters on a regular basis. Challenging myself with new techniques and materials has helped me learn as I go; a period of working in a local fabric and sewing store was also a great opportunity to pick up new skills.
I enjoy making costumes from the Star Wars movies and expanded universe material (such as the Clone Wars animated series and comics), but also like characters from various superhero franchises (such as Batman and other DC Comic series)...my collection and plans, however, include selections from favourite movies and other media.
Below is a gallery of my completed costumes to date. Each image is a link through to a page dedicated to that costume/character with more (and larger) images and details. I also have a Flickr.com account which contains images from costuming events, and photos of costumes I have made for others. My Livejournal blog is the site where I post about costumes-in-progress, and ideas for upcoming costumes.
