Intercon K is at the beginning of March. I have my first character and I know what I want to make/wear:
grey or silver tights
a knee length silver dress with either a mock turtleneck or mandarin style neck and either flutter or cap sleeves
I might be able to justify wearing the sparkly platforms I bought umpteen years ago, because they were too scary fabulous to leave behind.
And makeup. I normally use makeup as an affordable way to transform myself into many different characters.
Yesterday morning I unearthed my fabric stash. I have this filmy silver swirled fabric. My rough yardage estimate (fingers to nose, fingers to nose) was about 4 yards. That should be enough to make something knee length, but I don't have a pattern. I have cobbled together patterns before for some really simple things, so I should be able to make something that works even if it is not attractive outside of the costuming sense.
There is knitting to be done, tights to buy, and insanity to commence.
And I haven't even found out about my other two characters yet!
