DDoP 2016 Ep04: Thread Snippings 002: Robe Version 2
This is another Dog Days of Podcasting catch-up episode; this one is for Sunday, August 7.
In this episode, I share the strategy I used to make my Jedi robe. I know the prevailing Jedi wisdom is “Do or do not, there is no try,” but I went into this project with an attitude of “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Does that make me a poor Jedi?* Maybe, but I do believe it has made me a better cosplayer. This is among the most ambitious cosplay projects I’ve ever taken on, so I knew I wasn’t going to succeed completely the first time I tried to make it. Therefore, I strategically planned to make a Version 1 and a Version 2 so that I could make a ton of mistakes on Version 1, then fix them all in Version 2.
