    Hello, my name is Karina, I go by Kartsie on the internet. I'm a university student studying Costume construction (BFA in Theatre Design & Tech.) I live and breathe costumes and research. Because my program is small, I've gotten to work on some really fun and complex builds. Like building a classical tutu and bodice (I quilted the bobbinet and everything) and trying out tailoring by patterning and doing the hand work on a woman's blazer (pad stitching and working with tailor's tape.) I haven't tried everything yet, but I know this is what I want to do.

    On personal time I'm currently working on a 1969 Scooby Doo project with my friends. I've been working on it for almost 2 years now, researching and making a mini production of sorts. Luckily my best friend (who wears my Velma costume) knits. I've finished 3 out of 4 characters so far.

    I'm also a Treky, although I still need to make my way through the original series as I grew up with deep space nine and next generation. On my long list of things to make is a star trek uniform, but I have yet to determine which I would make. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy to be here!

    Welcome, Kartsie!

    Thanks for sharing about your costume studies and projects. That's really cool!

    I'm not familiar with tutus (classical or otherwise), that sounds pretty intense.

    As we know, padstitching and taping can really make some magical things happen.

    TNG and DS9 are great to grow up with. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It sounds like at your level you're probably capable of making just about any of the STAR TREK uniforms, so time/budget issues notwithstanding, it may just be a matter of personal preference.

    There are many more women's patterns in my queue, coming soon.

    Thanks again for joining!
