I wanted to attend C2E2 since forever, but my antisocial ways wouldn’t let me. This year my niece took pity on me and invited me. I attended on my birthday, since I’m not getting any younger I decided to face my fears. I mean Disney had prepared me for this right? How bad could it be? There was a huge crowd but I managed to control my anxiety and I survived!!
I decided to wear a costume like two weeks before, I procrastinate like I get paid, no kidding. Took me another week to start sewing, I had big plans you know but I had to settle for vintage Cat Woman. I used this glittery knit fabric that was super thin, I had lined the whole thing. I also used my first PDF pattern by Mimi G, don’t tell her she might think I disrespected her pattern..😂 Available Here.
This pattern was super easy, took me longer to tape the pages together. I installed the zipper on the back instead of the front, something I regretted on my first trip to the restroom, and I also changed the neckline. Next time I’ll take better pictures since all I see is my donut belly. Something that could have been easily fixed by using compression mesh as lining. Next time I’ll sew this pattern the way it was intended to.
The Artist Alley was my favorite part of the convention. There were so many awesome Cosplayers and a huge selection of Comic Books. I just might return next year.
