Howdy everybody. As many of you know I started a full-time job as a medical assistant last year, became a father, husband, and am still in the National Guard. I had to put a lot of things on hold, but things have settled down and I'm stoked to be involved in tkbearcrew again!
I'm also VERY excited to announce that as of yesterday (6 Feb 11) I am the proud owner of a pass for Dragon*Con 2011! I honestly wasn't sure if I could make it until I sat down last weekend and crunched numbers. One big sacrifice I have to make will be in my costumes. I plan on making the best Assassins Creed costume I can (Ezio Auditore de Firenze), but it will likely be rushed and half-finished by September. I'll be taking this costume more seriously than any I've ever made. My creativity/artistic level is... abysmal. There is an incredible amount of detail in his Renaissance-esque outfit. I haven't sewn anything since Home Ec in middle school, and I regrettably wasn't paying attention to anything but the girls. If anyone has any advice or ideas to slide my way, please feel free to tell me!
