DDoP 2017 Ep29: Thread Snippings 028: Costume Completion Show-and-Tell

This episode was recorded live at my Toastmasters club meeting earlier today. Nobody else had volunteered to speak at today’s meeting, and I had just finished my new anime costume, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and record this. Once again, this is being uploaded completely unedited.

DDoP 2017 Ep28: Thread Snippings 027: The First Transport Is Away!

The bulk of my cosplay accessories are on their way to Atlanta, thanks to a very kind friend of mine! I talk about that and the progress I’ve made today. I also think out loud about what to wear to which Dragon Con events.

DDoP 2017 Ep24: Thread Snippings 024: One More Week!

At the end of a quiet day, I talk about the costume progress I made today and reply to one of my fellow DDoP podcasters’ shows. Once again, no in-depth editing or music because it’s a work night and I need to get to bed.

DDoP 2017 Ep23: Thread Snippings 023: An Unexpected Costume

I didn’t set out to finish an anime costume within the month of August, but now I’m determined to do so. I talk about how that happened, the progress I’ve made, and my cosplay plans for Dragon Con. It must be almost the end of Dog Days of Podcasting, because this is my first episode release this month with no editing or post-production whatsoever, just the straight-up recording from my phone.

DDoP 2017 Ep16: Thread Snippings 022: Progress Marches On

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Wednesday, August 16. In this episode, I ramble about all the good news I have and the progress I made today, on both the tech front and the sewing front.

DDoP 2017 Ep14: Thread Snippings 021: Cosplay Milestones

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Monday, August 14. Today, I finally got a set of costume photos taken for submission to the Rebel Legion, and I finally got that dress form, thanks to the power of OfferUp! I tell those stories in today’s episode.

DDoP 2017 Ep11: Thread Snippings 019: Dress Form Blues

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Friday, August 11, 2017. In this episode, I talk about the consequences of being a cheapskate, and end on a positive note with some good news about Saturday night.

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.

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.

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.
