This started as a way to show off completed cosplays. But as I'm working on them more, I'm finding the need for build threads. So as I work on a cosplay, I'll post progress here. There'll be multiple builds going at any given time, but there'll be tags to distinguish them.
I thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea to regularly post an update on what I’m working on and a quick overview of what’s coming up.
I’ll start with what’s coming up since that’s quicker. First there’s Halloween. Right now my plan is Columbia in her pjs for class the Thursday before and Gaz for my friends’ party. I’m tempted to bring out Tim for class on Tuesday just for fun.

While I do have a Tumblr devoted to this costume, I feel this is worthy of being posted here.

Her description in Blackout was the final nail in the coffin:
Let the chaos begin!
I have my app installed, my packing list ready, and three out of five costumes to complete. Here’s the plan:
Friday Morning: First Doctor bathing suit for Bathing Beauties photoshoot
Friday Afternoon: Harry Dresden for Legendary Sleuths photoshoot
Friday Evening: SG-13 Woodland Uniform for the Intergalactic Military Ball
Saturday Morning: Post-regeneration Tenth Doctor for the…
