Batman Inc.: Stephanie Brown I by Aigue-Marine Batman Inc.: Stephanie Brown I by Aigue-Marine
I wish you all a HAPPY - belated - NEW YEAR 2012!
I hope you were all able to enjoy your holidays and had a lot of fun on New Year's Eve. Are you still living accordingly to your New Year's Resolutions? I have to admit that I didn't make any for thist year... ;D

In my latest poll I asked you pictures of which costume you would like to see next. The poll was closed on January 12th, 09:00 pm.
As you can see the majority of participants voted for Stephanie Brown's St. Hadrian's school uniform as seen in the latest issue of Batman Inc. - Leviathan Strikes.

At this point I have to concede that it took me a while until I really started to like the recent chapter of Batman Inc., Stephanie's school uniform was love at first sight though.
Making the outfit was easy and took me 1 1/2 days at the maximum. The blouse, the slipover, the shoes and the overknee socks were parts I already had in stock - the tie and the skirt were the only parts I had to sew.
For the grey skirt I unstitched the first pleated skirt I ever made. It looked horrible, because I had absolutely no clue how to make a proper pleated skirt back in 2006.
I'm happy how the skirt for this outfit turned out... It's comfortable to wear and flatters the shape of my body, I think. About the tie isn't much to say, I guess. I like making and wearing them.

It's a real pity you cannot see more of the location in this picture. We took the pictures near the ruin of the so-called St. Barbara church in Karlsberg/Langensteinbach, Germany.
I hope I will find the possibility to go there again - to take pictures of another costume or something.

:bulletred: P.S.: I created myself an account on WorldCosplay.net - just like everybody else. Feel free to add me if you like to! :bulletred:

Perhaps I may. I'd like to do some cosplaying, but I have been reluctant to start up. It seems expensive you know? I have no idea how to sew and the only person I know who can is my mom... But because I'm a guy and any character I like enough to cosplay is a girl...I am so not asking her to make me costumes lol awkward. School uniforms seem pretty handy though...because you can pick up a white blouse pretty much any place. Not complicated to put the clothes on, comfortable as long as they fit...stuff you can spend the whole day in. But sewing pleated skirts and junk seems tricky to me.

Cosplay can be expensive, it doesn't have to be though. :) It really depends on which character you choose. A fantasy armour is expensive - of course. But you can make a school uniform for approx. 20-30$. If you don't want to start sewing you can also get costumes from eBay or AliExpress. :) I think there are some pretty good cosplay stores from the US as well.

Yes, I don't think I'd want to be doing anything that required armor and such... school uniforms and maybe dresses is all. I see a lot of decent priced costumes online:nod: That will be probably what I do, unless I meet someone local who can and likes to sew, preferably someone else into cosplay to help.:nod: I need places that do female costumes in men sizes and also allow custom sizing.

Alright. :) I think that's a good way to start.
You know, you could take sewing classes as well. ;) I bet your mom would be proud. I mean, how many young men are able to fix their clothes on their own?
