Number Six Costume

Amy Number6

I like costumes, and I am getting better and better at putting them together. I have enough pieces now to easily dress up as someone different for every day of a week long convention. Though I can cobble things together, I barely know how to even turn a sewing machine on. So when I wanted to dress up like Number Six from my beloved Battlestar Galactica, I turned to a professional. I sent Tonya Gergely of Mia La an email to see what we could do. Then I dug up promotional photos and screenshots of the red dress. I sent her the reference photos, gave her my measurements, and provided a sturdy strapless bra, and got back a beautiful dress that is unbelievably close to the real thing. I've received so much positive feedback for it, that she now lists the dress as a regularly available costume (along with a Slave Leia and a kicking Wonder Woman). For the final touch, my boyfriend and I sculpted the ring and bracelet from two part epoxy and painted them silver. I think the only part I'm missing, besides being a Tricia Helfer lookalike, is a better wig.

I had the best moment while wearing this dress to Comic-Con in 2008. As I was finding a seat for a crowded panel, I hear a small voice say "Love your dress." I turned and saw a girl in a beautiful Kaylee ruffle dress from Firefly's "Shindig." I squee'd and whispered back how much I adored her dress.

I love conventions.

  6. آبچکان رومیزی در حقیقت یک جا ظرفی است که ظرف ها داخل آن قرار می گیرند. هنگامی که ظرف ها شسته می شوند بلافاصله نباید آن ها را در سر جای خودشان قرار داد چون در این
    صورت لکه های آب روی ظرف می ماند و این مسئله ظاهر زیبایی ندارد. بهتر است پس از شستن ظرف ها ظرف ها خشک شوند و پس از آن در سر جای اصلی شان قرار گیرند. برای انجام این

    کار می توان ظرف ها را به کمک یک پارچه و یا یک دستمال تمیز ابتدا خشک نمود سپس آنها را در سر جای مناسب قرار دهید. با توجه به شرایط زندگی های امروزی که مشغله های ذهنی و

    کاری زیاد شده است و همه با کمبود وقت مواجه هستند ممکن است وقت خشک کردن ظروف را نداشته باشیم و یا ممکن است بسیار خسته نباشیم و نتوانیم ظرف ها را خشک کنیم. اگر در چنین

    شرایطی قرار گرفته باشیم نمی توانیم ظرف ها را خشک کنیم پس باید یک راهی برای خشک شدن ظرف های مان پیدا کنیم. استفاده از آبچکان رومیزی این مشکل ما را حل می کند. آبچکان

    رومیزی وسیله ای است که می توان آن را روی میز و یا روی کابینت و همین طور روی کانتینر قرار داد. در هنگام استفاده از این محصول می توانیم ظروفی را که شسته شده اند در داخل آن ها

    قرار دهیم. در این صورت ظرف ها خود به خود خشک می شوند بعد از آن می توانیم آنها را سر جایشان قرار دهیم.

  10. Some websites really need to do something about their ranking. There are a lot of websites that offer amazing content but sometimes that content does not reach people. I was searching for website design company and I found a lot of websites on the first page, TBH their topics were so cliché and repetitive. I kept moving to further pages and I found some really good websites that were offering good content with different topics.
