Goose and I will be working on some another set of cosplays so that we won't have to be melting in our portable sauna all the time.

Right now I have only worked on the planning for things to buy and roughly how we're going to go about making these. I've bought the patterns I need for Zoe's shrug, vest and pants and have already started altering the pattern for the vest. I'm trying to get the muslin mockups to fit right, so I know exactly how much pleather I'll need for it. Our nearest Joann has the right colors, but all the upholstery pleather is about $22/yard (*DEATH*). So exact measurements will be pretty key since our budget it tight.

After we can buy materials and start working, I don't predict that our Firefly costumes should take too long, except constructing Zoe's signature Mare's Leg. It's good that we are doing this one now, since Goose and I were lacking a relatively comfortable cosplay for Otakon this year and we've been wanting to do Zoe and Wash for a while.
Can't wait for the end of April and can't wait for cosplay construction!
