Oscars 2016

Although we had different initial plans, after seeing Star Wars:  The Force Awakens, I decided to dress as General Organa (Princess Leia).  It’s one of those easy to wear costumes, with a moderately elaborate hairdo that is always good for the Oscars party.   After seeing Bridge of Spies, Stephen decided to go as Jim Donovan, the attorney played by Tom Hanks.

For me, I needed a flight suit – but what color?  khaki?  grey?  blue-grey?  I decided on the khaki, which is most versatile, from Tru-Spec (same company we got the BlueBox 42 clothing pieces from).  And then a burgundy/mahogany cotton to make the vest she wears.  And then figuring out how to make the belt buckles.  

Stephen was pretty easy — his suit, plus a grey fedora and a plaid scarf.
