Yes, I will admit it. I am somewhat of a … ok a major geek. I was sorting through Firefly (the series not the bug) patterns on Ravelry the other day and I ran across two amazing projects that simply must be done in the next few months. The first is a nigh perfect replica of the crocheted shrug River wears in “Jaynestown” and “Objects in Space” (reference below) and the second is a Serenity (the ship from the Firefly series) plushie.
I’ve been wanting to cosplay River when I first say the series back in high school before I even knew what cosplay was. She is such a complex character and her wardrobe is amazing. I really can’t wait to actually get to cosplay her. Hopefully, I can get a full group together as well. That would just make the event even more awesome.
The Serenity plushie is an added bonus I found. I would love to use it as a prop for River, especially since she pretended to be Serenity in “Objects in Space”. Both look to be relatively easy projects, though I might have to modify the shrug to fit perfectly. I’m hoping to get both projects done before the new year at the earliest and by my favorite con in August for sure. Hopefully, I’ll be able to start these projects soon and post progress pictures as I go.
You can find both patterns on Ravelry if you search “Firefly” in patterns.
