Inspiration: My friend was going to be joining me for a Firefly cosplay group. Her personality is very similar to that of Zoe's, and she loved the costume, so I offered to help create it. I was responsible for the gun, gun belt, leg holster, and vest.
Favorite Aspect: I was rather proud of how the pieces I made turned out, but my favorite part was seeing my friend in the entire costume. She just embodied Zoe to the core and it was amazing. She is a big damn hero.
Least Favorite Aspect: My sewing machine threw a hissy fit and I had to do a great deal of hand sewing on a majority of the costume.
Easiest Task: Painting the gun
Hardest Task: Either the vest or the leg holster. Creating a garment for someone else can be tricky. Normally I only sew my own costumes and I can easily use my self as a model whenever I like. It's much more difficult when I need to track down my friend for multiple fittings.
