mia's costume diaries


green flightsuit wash from firefly

Hoban "Wash" Washburne from Firefly is one of my favorite characters.  I've decided to get a costume together for my husband (because he said he'd wear it!).  So, here are the diaries...

Well, I think I should probably mention that Scott has worn this costume.  He debuted it at CONvergence 2008.  It went well, and I'm sure he was comfy!  Pictures will be forthcoming. :)

I didn't update when I found a suitable Hawaiian shirt at Goodwill.  I hemmed up the coveralls because they were a little too long.  I think this one is pretty much done for now.   I might try to find the vest thing he wears, but without it, it's still recognizable.

I received the jumpsuit in the mail last week from  I'm very happy with the suit.  We haven't tried it on yet, but I'm sure it'll work out just fine.  If not, I'll alter. 
I looked through the racks at Goodwill last week too, to look for a Hawaiian shirt that was suitable.  I'll keep looking.
