But I didn't want to go to Armageddon in non-themed clothes - so I looked in my stash and found this fabric I bought a while back with lady super heroes!
Vix sent me, the pattern is Maudella 5619 and I've made it a bunch of times including here, here and here (to name a only a few).
I didn't have enough of this fabric to make a whole dress, so I mixed it up with some plain black cotton (which I really need more of, I always go for the bright colours and patterns first). I was really happy with the way it turned out for a quick make with a slightly jet-lagged brain.
Did I enjoy Armageddon this year you may ask? The short answer is that is wasn't as fun as other years I've been and part of the reason may be that I wasn't in costume. However, when we went on Saturday it was INSANELY busy!! We could hardly move and it was hard to see any of the stalls and get photos with people in costume which was a bit of bummer.
If I go in 2016 I think I will take Friday off and go then as hopefully it will be less busy as there were just too many people.
The characters Shell and I got to meet were pretty cool though - the Ogie Boogy Man and Totoro!
