Comic Con Bag Upcycle 2015 by bandoodie
Comic Con Bag Upcycle 2015
Event: San Diego Comic Con 2015
Where: San Diego, California, USA
Photographer: GL (no DA account)

So I wanted a way to recycle last year's ComicCon bags because they were just sitting in my closet.  It was a creative challenge & great fun to make. It was also surprisingly comfortable to wear even though it's unlined.  I decided on a 1950's inspired outfit.  All in all, it took 4 bags and is made up of 2 pieces -- the skirt and the top.  I am quite petite in size, so if you are thinking of making your own outfit -- that's just a loose gauge of how many bags you might need.

The skirt: I used McCall's Pattern M6706 and used the same side of 4 different bags so that the skirt would look consistent all the way around.  I also added a thin black lace border on the bottom and used black fabric for the top to give it a more finished look.

The top: I heavily modified Vogue pattern 7015 -- made it smaller for a tighter fit around the torso and added a scarf-looking collar inspired by the Athena character in the Disney movie Tomorrowland.  I used the same thin lace border on the edge of the sleeves and bottom of the top as the skirt.

Because sometimes, you have to do something dramatic in order to move mountains.....

As it happens sometimes in life, I realized I was on a path up the wrong mountain for the wrong reasons. Doesn't matter that I was nearly at the top. Doesn't matter -- all the prestige and glory that comes from reaching that peak. Doesn't matter all the energy & effort already spent in order to reach a goal that sacrificed the balance in my life. So I have turned away from the glorious road and decided to take instead a less traveled path... and if you don't mind, I'd like to take this corner of the page to finally share a few thoughts along the way.
