So I recently discovered the The Green Pepper, Inc which sells patterns for outdoorsy/winter apparel. 
This is the Wilmette Racing Suit pattern for adults and would be fucking perfect for Carol cosplay. it has the right seams and the color contrast is exactly where it ought to be. It would require the least amount of modification out of of literally every other pattern I’ve seen. 
If I ever remake Carol, there is a very good chance I will use this pattern. Can any other Carol cosplayers speak to its ease or sew-ability? Is this as good a pattern for cosplay as it appears?

Ok, I had never really thought about cosplaying Carol Danvers but now that you posted this I think I have to.  I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to wear something this tight in public, but I can at least try.  Sewing a bodysuit makes me nervous enough that I think I’d better do it at least once.
This is entirely clairdelune’s fault.  Just for future reference.

We need women who are so strong that they can be gentle, so educated that they can be humble, so fierce that they can be compassionate, so passionate that they can be rational, and so disciplined that they can be free. We need uncommon women. And here you are. And how deeply reassuring to me it is to know that wherever we go—there you will be.”

The further I get into Caprica, the harder it is not to just see the followers of the One True God as Omnians.

The Right Partner

This is my gift art for recklesstomorrows in the starspangledexchange Captain America gift exchange. Recklesstomorrows requested happy Steve/Peggy. Steve never went into the ice (or Howard found him in time), and they finally got their dance.

…. what, you didn’t think those two were going to slow dance, did you? XD Actually I think they started out dancing rather sedately, and then began egging each other on to more and more athletic moves, until they’re the only ones dancing because everyone else is just standing on the sidelines watching and going “…..”

(I’m not entirely sure where they are. It’s meant to be some sort of indoor dancing venue — officer’s club? something like that? — around the era of the war’s end. I kinda fail at backgrounds. This scene was inspired, though not directly referenced, from this photo I found when I went looking for period couples dancing, in which actual non-supersoldier-augmented people are doing something like this. GOOD FOR YOU, ATHLETIC 1940s DANCERS.)

This is also my first shot at drawing Steve’s rather awesome WWII uniform … sadly most of the recognizable elements are on the front.

But hopefully you like it, recklesstomorrows.

I was tagged by pineapplesquid.

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

1.  Discworld series, by Tery Pratchett

2.  Wildmage Quartet, Tamora Pierce

3.  The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood

4.  HMS Surprise (and all the others), Patrick O’Brian

5.  Wise Child, Monica Furlong

6.  Howl’s Moving Castle, Diana Wynn Jones

7.  The Last Unicorn, Peter S. Beagle

8.  Spindle’s End, Robin McKinley

9.  Don Quijote, Cervantes

10.  Betsy-Tacy series, Maude Hart Lovelace.

I’m not tagging anyone in particular, but I’d love to see everybody’s answers!  Consider yourself tagged if you’re reading this.

Full disclosure: Pineapplesquid tagged me, but I waited to read her list until after I wrote mine.  I can’t wait to see what/where they overlap.

ETA: Five of mine are on her list.  The other five are ones that I probably should have thought of.
