Questions and Answers

As I was starting to get this blog ready to use again, I realized the about me page and FAQ hadn’t been updated in over a year, and it was time I fix that, since a lot has changed since then! I have updated my FAQ over at my tumblr, and here in my about section,

The main question I get is about if I am pursuing fashion or costume design in college. I really did consider it, but after much soul-searching, I ultimately decided that it isn’t the path for me. Although I’ll absolutely continue design and sewing, I will be starting a nursing degree as of Fall 2016, which I’m very excited about!

I have a few new projects in the works, so expect to see stuff about that soon! I decided I needed to get my blog back into shape before I started to post projects again (otherwise I’d never do it!) There are a few more common questions below the cut, and any other common questions can be found on my tumblr.


General:
How old are you?
 I’m 19 years old as of November 2015.
How tall are you / what are your measurements? Not very – I’m about 5’ 3”. My measurements are  30-23-30.
Where are you from? Australia! But I live in the United States.
Do you have a boyfriend? I do! He is very good about putting up with all of my sewing rambling.
What is your natural hair and eye color? I naturally have green/grey eyes and sort of off-brown hair, but it tends to grow in a different colour every year or so, which is why it looks like I have an ombre.
What languages do you speak? I speak English and German. You’re welcome to message me in either, and I’ll answer. I also speak very bad French.

Research and Supplies:
What websites do you use to research? I use too many to post them all here, and they vary from project to project. There is a really great masterlist here, though!
What books do you use? Lots of different ones! I also borrow ones from the library, but you can see the books I own here.

Sewing:
How long have you been sewing? I was taught the basics when I was about 12, but I started sewing seriously in January 2014.
What sewing machine do you have? A Viking H-Class 100Q that I love and would probably cry if something happened to.
How did you make ____? Check my blog, as I write down how I make things there. If I don’t answer your question, shoot me an ask, or write me an email at inarascostumes@live.com
Have you thought about making/cosplaying _____? I am always open to suggestions! However, please don’t get angry if I don’t make something – I love to hear what people have to say, but different factors will affect how likely I am to actually start a project.

Other Things:
Is this you? Maybe. I have a Pinterest, Facebook Fan Page, WordPress blog, and Instagram. I also have a personal Facebook. Any other sites are probably not me, and if you see someone saying they are, I’d appreciate you telling me!
How do you find time for all your sewing? Time management, and putting off other things that I should be doing instead. I am actually pretty good a not procrastinating, so I can get a good hour or two of sewing in as long as I keep things in check. Besides sewing, I am a student and I also work part-time, so it can be difficult!

If you have a question that isn’t here, please send me an ask, or write me an email at inarascostumes@live.com.

I should be posting some new stuff here very soon – I have a few projects in the works!

  1. François Mitterand once said that “English is just badly pronounced French” so perhaps you speak more French than you realise.
