Wee, another item for The Stash!
I've been wanting some really casual, comfortable "Sunday at the con" type costumes... a few people have told me I resemble Summer Glau, I don't really see it except a few similarities, but it's enough to convince me I could probably pull off a River costume. I love hers but they have weird knit/crocheted bits I can't replicate. And even though I'm not really a fan of pink, I've decided the easiest one for me to do is her costume from the Firefly episode "Safe".
I found a neat pair of boots at Charlotte Russe in the mall for $20! They're not perfect but close enough, and I can alter some things in the future. The only hard thing would be the sweater, which I believe is woven and not knit. I would probably end up making a small loom and making my own fabric. But this is a "when you have time" costume so no clue when I'll start, but I'm looking forward to having a comfy costume. Here's my boots next to the boots that are supposedly what she is wearing.
