Inara costume for 2010 Can't Stop the Serenity charity screening

I have to applaud the organisers of the 2010 Can't Stop The Serenity.  The venue was the right size and it was so much fun to watch Dr Horrible as well as Serenity.  I'm so glad that it was finally a year I could get to it.

Here's Ripley and I ... actually it's the of the best photo I've got of my Inara Serra costume despite wearing it 3 or 4 times before.

Ma Dola, from the movie Laputa

It was great to make a costume from the movie Laputa ... there aren't many characters in anime that are suited to a woman no longer in the bloom of youth. Thankfully I really like Ma Dola - she's cranky, bossy but with a kind heart (at least some of the time). One of the lines that most amuses me in the movie is when her sons wonder if all women grow up to be like their mother. This horrifies them!
