"Shortstop," nine years old.

One thing Bruce and I like to do is to make and wear costumes. We make historical costumes, which we wear to dances, about one per month, and to things like renaissance faires. (Depending on what part of the country you live in, you may know of Civil War groups, Revolutionary War groups or medieval groups that do these sorts of things.) We also make science fiction costumes, which we wear to science fiction conventions, sometimes on stage, sometimes just to walk around in. The historical costumes require a lot of research because we like to make them as close as possible to what people actually wore hundreds of years ago. The science fiction costumes require a lot of imagination and creativity. How would you make a dress for a wedding in zero G? What would a warrior from a planet with gravity three times ours look like and wear? I'm always learning (or inventing!) new techniques in sewing or hat making or shoe making or make-up. It's really a lot of fun. I hope one day to be a mission specialist on a shuttle mission. And I still take ballet and I still read science fiction...
Some costumes we did for a competition at a science fiction convention. I am the "nice lady" in white. We won awards for both presentation and workmanship.
This costume is a replica of one worn on the tv show "Deep Space Nine" by Major Kira Nerise's evil twin, the Intendant.
