    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    That all has me looking forward to the point I get the complete body suit from ZamIam. I am so happy to see other getting the material and being very happy with the results.

    It came fine. The top part did have a rip on one side, but everything inside seems to be just fine.
    They must have those apes from the old Samsonite commercial working at the post office.
    This made me laugh, I just had to post it.
    By the way, all those on the seamstress list will have their stuff packed in other size boxes. And the two remaining non-seamstress people-I will try to styrofoam the boxes so they don't bend. Sorry for that... I didn't know that would happen.

    Hope you all got your emails labeled Seamstress issues 2, Progress pics on Wednesday hopefully. She had to redraft everything 3 times already because of details.

    I didn't know if we all formally welcomed Zamsara into the "Fellowship." She acquired Nienumb's fabric. I saw her everso briefly at DragonCon. But! she was there at the TDH contest, err... was it the Star Wars contest? I can't remember...both were in the dunwoody room. Anycow, welcome, if I didn't welcome you before. Wish I coulda let you try on Dallas' helm and take a better gander at the rest of the parts including the neo suit. Shozbot! Gotta have a zamcon, really... Just not enuff time to talk to everyone at DragonCon about the most important costume ever! ARGHGHG!

    Hey Girl! It was great to meet u and your hubby in person but way too brief! You looked GREAT!!!! I saw you and said "That HAS to be Zam I Am!!!" I knew that you were so very busy, didnt want to take up too much of your time. But I do wish I could have tried on the helm too, now that I think of it...hehe. So are you going to any more cons in the south any time soon?

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    Zamsara~Not really. Just doing a bunch of stuff with our local 501st.

    I will be going to the local Tandy leather today 9/20 to visit, because they helped me so much with the leather products, I told them I would show up in costume

    The crop top and welted pants: I wound up doing all the button holes and the snap for the leg greeblie, make suspenders/with buttons.
    My seamstress did everything else. This is the front shot:

    This is the back shot:


    I did not get to see the seamstress, as she got hit really bad with the hurricane. Flooding and power outtage. I don't think it affected her store, just her house.

    Yeah.... I was wondering how you guys fared back there in MD? Hope everyone is okay!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    Thanks, we actually missed it by *that* much.(insert hairpin) Everone else got it bad. Someone was praying for us I think, cause people that got it, got it bad. No power 2 days, or more, and flooding, not to mention the trees falling on top of cars/houses etc. I had it bad right before Dragon Con! Weird how those gargantuan nature thrillers work. Most have the problems like ours, if your electricity goes off, so does your sump pump and thus your basement floods and your food goes bad. But our house didn't get hit at all, we were really fortunate.

    Glad I live in Holland, we never have storms like that, although sometimes we do have floodings. Isn't it terrible to live in the knowledge that your house might be gone after the next storm?

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    OK all, I am going to see the seamstress today to fix the vest pattern and finally wear the suit for her to see if there are any more problem areas. This is the last and final pattern alteration that will be made.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    The last people left on the list to recieve their fabric:
    Dark Trooper
    Maul Maus
    Wookie
    Zamsara

    Please pm me your addresses, Projected ship date: Tues Oct 23,2004

    Thanks!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    Has everyone received their material or their suit?

    I haven't been able to get a reply from the seamstress via email and I can't find her number.

    Yvonne, I know you've got enough to deal with, so don't worry about this right now. I'm just trying to see if I'm the only one having a problem getting my stuff.

    This is very frustrating to say the least!!!!!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    emailed you her phone #, Last on the list is: Cutest Sandgirl's pattern (if I am not mistaken), Lady Zam, and your suit. The wait is not with me shipping- or the material, cause I already shipped ALL of that out. I got it from her studio and cut it myself. I didn't want the others to have to wait any longer. She responds best by you calling her.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    Thanks for the number!

    I didn't have to call her. I just received an email from her. I guess she's been having troubles with a computer virus now. It's too bad. She seems to be really having a string of bad luck. She said she's trying to get the rest of the zam stuff finished in the next couple weeks. (crosses fingers )

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    Whow, a second run and no one told me? I see that the run was for october, if there is any room left on this list, please let me know Zam I Am

  16. #166

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    There was no second run. These people were on the first run, they were also on the seamstress list, but I decided to take them off of the seamstress list and just give them their neoprene, because the seamstress wasn't showing signs that she could handle all the orders in time for C3. I didn't want others to be waylayed. The last three people are people whom she started sewing the suits for.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    Kim most likely won't have her Zam done by C3 anyway. We've basically been collecting Zam parts for like 2 years now, but because it's all a waiting game for things like the pattern, someone making the gauntlets, etc, it's not happening fast. Therefore, we've basically stalled on the Zam progress until all the main things are available, then we can start working hard on this costume.

    During the time since she's starting buying parts for her Zam, she's already started and completed FOUR other costumes, and Zam still has a long time to go.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    I feel your pain...I've completed a few other costumes as well, Boushh being one of them (granted that still has some mods/upgrades/changes that'll need to be made too).

    Seems like this Zam thing is a never ending process. I'd like mine to be done by CIII, but I'm doubting it'll happen. Ah well, better late then never I suppose.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    Yeah... I'm pushing hard on the Zam right now... hoping and praying it will get done by C3... but it may not!

    C3 will be a blast in any case - though all in all, I'd rather have a Zam costume to wear!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    WOW!!! It's been two years since we started this (ad)venture and still no suit . Yvonne, I am not in any way pointing my bony finger at you I'm very upset with the seamstress though. She just keeps giving me more excuses and later deadlines. I wonder what she would do if she were in my shoes?

  22. #172

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    I am so sorry I chose her for you guys. It really reeks that it's taking so entirely long. I haven't been in touch with anything costuming related because I have been sick and nautious everyday with my pregnancy and both of us having work related problems, I haven't been able to devote anytime to Zam or other things. I have been forced to drop all costuming related projects due to this pregnancy. Please, Cutest Sandgirl, Lady Zam and Moncal, coordinate amoungst yourselves a day where all three of you CALL her and complain about your issues and tell her that the deadline of February needs to be met. You need your suits/suit patterns. Don't accept excuses, say, you have paid for your product, and waiting 2 years is really unrealistic, because you haven't been able to make any conventions with your Zam suits. Say, you've even had other projects done already in the time that you've waited. Hubby just hopes that we can even make it to C3 because of the pregnancy. I am actually 10 weeks, not one month preggo. I am sorry I am unable to help further at this point, I am scared both my husband and I may lose our jobs. The reason why I sent out all the material to everyone else on the list, is cause I don't trust her timing.

    Zam I Am said:

    Actually this is true. We've made Kimmy 3 other costumes that she's worn to conventions during the time after she ordered from this seamstress.

    Hope you feel better, ZIA!!!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    Thanks Yvonne! I know you're an awesome person and have done everything you can and now with EVERYTHING you've got to worry about, you've got to take care of yourself. I was just venting We will keep bugging her. It's all we can do. If it wasn't clear across the country, I'd drive out there and knock on her door!

    We've also completed several other costumes since this one started.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!!

    The seamstress just wrote me back and said our (everyone's) suits are almost done and should ship out next week.
