got started on the hallowe'en costume today!
so far i've prewashed/preshrunk the fabric for the jumpsuit, dug up the pattern, altered it for size, and dug a bunch of zippers out of a bag i was just about to take to goodwill. whee!
the ghostbusters fan wiki has been a huge help as far as figuring out details. or in my case, figuring out what details i am going to leave out. i just don't have the time and energy for that level of authenticity, especially for a kid who will outgrow it in no time. it's not like he's going to be going to historical reenactments for years in this thing. but it was good to look at all the details on the wiki and sketch out what i am going do.
and, in the spirit of being able to say i accomplished at least one thing, i machine-embroidered a venkman badge. not sure i'm perfectly happy with it, but it's not bad.
just one million more tasks to go in the next four weeks...
