"gonna set your hope on fire"  
I don't know if you remember, but I sure do: about a year ago, I swore that the next costume I made, I would be proud of from head to toe, front to back.

THIS IS NOT THAT COSTUME.

This costume is about a step up from duct tape. Everything was quite nearly a disaster (and some things were beyond so), but ngmaster managed to make the pictures come out pretty freaking awesome anyway.

The day pretty much went as such:

Me: OMG WTF NO
ngmaster: It's okay.
Me: OMG WTF I KNOW THAT BUT IT'S NOT BECAUSE I CAN'T GET THIS ON MY GIGANTIC HEAD
ngmaster: Don't worry about it.
Me: OMG WTF. THIS IS TERRIBLE.
Both: We'll do a shoot as Robin with her hair down. BRILLIANT.
- the shoot occurs -
ngmaster: I told you not to worry.
Me: OMG WTF I KNOW BUT ... POST PICTURES SOON DAMMIT I SUSPECT THEY MAY BE COOL.

Aren't they just so dang moody? David and I were joking that when I remake the costume and we do another shoot, we'll have to do it over and over and over again, forever aiming for this level of angst.

I love it! The shape of it all is lovely, and the texture of the gray part is kinda nifty!

These are really fantastic shots, as well. (I love your posing!)

Re: texture
OMG I just can't stop myself from buying things with weird texture, even when the costume doesn't require it at all.

You're still my favorite Robin, by the way.

These are beautiful. Very well done!

thank ye
I think the awesomeness of the photographs negates all the trouble we had up to that point.

Secretly, I desire to wear big floofy dresses with petticoats. Don't tell!

It might be the wig but you look captivating without the glasses on.

It's funny that you say that, as I always think I look weird without my glasses on. I've probably just had them for so long, I hardly recognize myself without them.

Well, if that's a disaster, the costume you will be proud of will more than likely give off looks that kill!!!

In other words, you look amazing!!

thanks
As long as it doesn't start fires ...

Way to turn a crummy situation into pure gold! No pigtails? No problem!! You look fantastic!

I give 90% of the credit for this to David, for being able to take such nice photographs.

Gorgeous shots and costume hun, I know it may not be up to you standards, but that doesn't make it photograph an less beautiful. It makes your look quite tall as well. Kudos to ng-master on some great shots.

By the by, I just got your phone messages. Long story short, my phone has been lost since mid-March (been using Josh's since then because he never uses it) and then I stumbled upon it behind the dog's crate in the kitchen last knight when he got his ball stuck back there. I have no idea how it got there. We didn't make it to Tekko. Money was too tight at the time due to Josh being out sick. I'm so sorry I missed another opportunity to see you :( We are FOR SURE coming in June (or Josh's family will kill us) for Josh's Family Reunion. We will be heading to Kennywood one of the days as well as doing a downtown museum day so if you interested in meeting up with us give me a call, I swear upon all that holy that my phone is staying glued to my hip and constantly charged and if there are any problems with it I will get it replaced before we leave! I'm so sorry again hun. Your grandmother is still in my thoughts and I'm hoping for the best outcome for all of you involved.

No worries about the phone/Tekko. Hopefully our schedules will align in June!

(Also, hurray to tall! Thank you, optical illusions ...)

You're an AMAZING Robin physically. I love your face and body type -- it's exactly how I'd picture her IRL. I especially love the idea with the ribbons because it really drills in the point -- HER HAIR IS DOWN, SHE'S AW SO SENSITIVE AND VULNERABLE RIGHT NOW.

Hot stuff, man. Great job. I know you're not terribly proud because you're a raging perfectionist, but YOU DONE GOOD, MA'AM.
One Who Wanders: angelicabiona on April 26th, 2009 03:23 pm (UTC)
A perfectionist!? Ack, I've been found out!

Thank you for the compliments.

These are FANTASTIC! Jen just walked by and saw them too - loves the dress ... SWEET.
