DDoP 2017 Ep07: Thread Snippings 018: A Day of Costume Progress

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Monday, August 7. In this episode, I share the latest updates on my costuming efforts, including the unexpected revival of a cosplay project that was shelved almost four years ago. It was a very productive day today, so I had quite a bit to talk about in this episode.

The theme song for The Thread Safe Podcast is “Puzzle Pieces,” by Lee Rosevere, from the album Music for Podcasts 2, which is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license and is available via freemusicarchive.org.

DDoP 2017 Ep03: Thread Snippings 017: Amy’s To-Do List

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Thursday, August 3, 2017. In this episode, I share the contents of my sewing to-do list for this Sunday, and my motivations for creating the most accurate set of Jedi robes I possibly can.

No theme music today, because my portable hard drive wouldn’t cooperate while I was recording and editing. (Connecting the USB cable while my old laptop was turned off, then booting it up, did the trick.)

DDoP 2017 Ep02: Thread Snippings 016: Return of the Encounter with the Sith

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Wednesday, August 2, 2017. This episode is a follow-up to my final Thread Snippings episode from last year’s DDoP challenge (which I recorded and uploaded via my SoundCloud account). In that episode, “An Encounter with the Sith,” I talked about marching alongside a fellow Star Wars costumer during our local Fourth of July parade. I saw that guy again at this year’s parade, and in the true Star Wars spirit, I reached out and befriended the man behind the mask.

DDoP 2016 Ep21: Thread Snippings 009: Behind the Scenes of Sewing

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Wednesday, August 24. (This episode is dropping earlier than usual because I got ahead on the challenge yesterday evening.) In this episode, I give you a live, near-real-time (I did edit the audio a little bit before posting it) look at part of my costume-making process. This episode shows some of the not-so-fun parts of costume-making and how I work through the problems I encounter.
