And here we go again...

Soooooo, DragonCon is coming up and my little band of buddies and I have a few things up our sleeves.  We are planning 3 costumes as a group. We, at this point, have 2 and 2/3 months left. If we get 2 of them actually made, I will be happy. If we get 3 of them done, I will be over the moon.

Stranger things have happened.

I will be posting progress here as I go, mostly to keep myself accountable and motivated as we approach D*C.

First up is a Retro Space-Girl Sailor Moon group.  Sahrye found this art on Deviant Art by a user called Hyamei, who did pretty detailed drawings of the girls. I have opted for Neptune (the teal one), Sahrye is going to do Sailor Moon, Holly will be in red and purple, and Mia is in all purple.

The full group looks like this:

In order to get all 3 costumes done by D*C, we need to essentially finish one costume a month, so this one needs to be pretty much wrapped up by end of June. 

Here's my project Plan (items in purple are specific to me as things that are needing to be identical were split up - Sahrye is doing the visors and the ring bracelets, and Holly is making collars for everyone.  I have never resin-cast before, but would love to try, so I am doing that part) :
