  1. got to start them young....you guys look great!
  2. new BSG movie

    Thought folks would like to know: http://www.wired.com/2014/04/battlestar-galactica-movie/ so, more BSG costuming possibilities!
  3. Remember me?

    hey, oldtimer! You're not the only one who has been away....I'm playing catch-up as well... been away from fandom and costuming for more than 2 years, and trying to ease back in slowly (I only work part-time, so not much disposable income)
  4. I say condense them. SG-14 is still active, although I'm not sure that it affiliates itself with SFH anymore.
  5. Just Checking In

    SG-14 still exists, although I don't think the team really identifies itself as being part of SFH anymore. You can find them on their Facebook page under SG-14: Stargate Fan Group.
  6. Has anyone seen THIS yet?

    Actually, I think he just relisted it, since no one bought it the last time he had it on eBay...
  7. Apparently, only Texas residents can bid, since they won't deliver it - local pickup only http://www.ebay.com/itm/Full-size-Doctor-Who-Tardis-machine-closet-shed-photobooth-storage-/181180363992?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a2f30f4d8
  8. Has anyone seen THIS yet?

    the seller, humev, has purchased a LOT of screen used props from Stargate, which he has turned around and sold on eBay, usually at a huge mark-up he also has a listing for the Atlantis stargate - http://www.ebay.com/itm/stargate-prop-atlantis-travel-gate-screen-used-/400527557433?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d414d8339e the catch is: for most of the larger items, he only offers local pick-up, so you have to drive to St. Albans, Missouri to get them - he won't ship them to you....
  9. Lady archer Short Dress

    very nice! but the proof in the pudding is to see how it looks on you!
  10. the book also has info on main characters, descriptions of the different class of ships, type of government, etc of the Honorverse - so this would be a handy guide for newbies to the Honorverse.... they also list and show the configurations of various service ribbons, medals and other insignia - now, we just need to find someone to make them....(I don't think any of the ribbon configurations are replicas of extant ribbons)
  11. FYI: There's a new book out that has images of the formal uniforms (officer and enlisted) for the Royal Manticoran Navy and the Grayson navy....and since it's written by David Weber, (along with BuNine) I would hope that this means this is the definitive reference http://www.amazon.com/House-Steel-The-Honorverse-Companion/dp/1451638930 The RMN uniforms are basically the same as described/depicted in the Jayne's Intelligence Review, but this is the first I've seen of the Grayson uniforms...(there was supposed to be a Jayne's Intelligence Review for the Silesian Navy, but I've yet to see it) will have to change my ship patch design for my Honor Harrington uniform - but need to find a new patch maker....
  12. geez, I go away for a while, and everything changes..... welcome Kristen!
  13. Steampunk started out as a literary genre (Jules Verne, HG Wells) - but branched out into cosplay strictly speaking, Steampunk is defined by a specific period of time - notably, the Victorian era (1837 to 1901) but some people have extended the time period to WWI and sometimes even to WWII (some examples of steam punk movies - League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Time Machine, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Golden Compass) the idea is that it is alternative history, with an emphasis on the incorporation of technology, but the technology is based on what was available and used during that period of time....steam power, lots of wood and brass....use of airships (blimps) instead of airplanes, for example... steampunk costuming has evolved to generally two distinct types - the British and the American - drawing on costumes of the period in those two respective countries - hence the bustiers and bustles for women, and top hats, tailcoats, and spats for men...but it seems that most people draw from the costuming styles from 1860s to the 1880s period.... there are also various archetypes in steampunk costuming - the explorer, the inventor, the naturalist, just to name a few... more recently, there is also Asian Steampunk, which is sort of a mix between gothic and Asian styles (you can definitely do steampunk, as there were Asians, more specifically, Chinese in the US during the late 1800s) here's a cartoon: and here's a couple of examples of Asian steampunk costuming: I did mine in Asian Steampunk style:
  14. The Royal Manticoran Navy

    sure, give me Jack Yeager's e-mail.... and what happened with HMS Stormbringer?
  15. The Royal Manticoran Navy

    sorry for the late response, but I'm back in Sacramento taking care of my mom, who probably has Alzheimer's.... unfortunately, being my mom's caretaker is pretty much a full-time job, so I haven't had a chance to look for work....hence, no income - which translates to my not being able to do anything fun for one thing, I don't have Internet service at home (my mom can't afford it), so I have to use the wi-fi at the local library....so, it's been frustrating... would love to attend Wondercon one of these days....
