OH LOOK IM MAKING PROGRESS
Kind of. I need to adjust the back and the belt, and add the stars still. But hot DAMN I feel sassy in this.
Freehand drafting and modifying from things I see on Burda? Fuck yeah, that’s how I make my Wonder Woman dress. When you’re a size 18 and the only pattern available is for a size 6, you learn to modify. And pray. Pray hard to the cosplay gods for mercy and a straight stitch.
You know what I hate?
So fuck the applique process. It works for larger scale items for me, but not for stars. I’m going to do the layered wood thing like I did for the lace headdress. Fuck all y’all couches, I’m improvising. Motherfucking pile of wooden stars n shit.
And I feel like I’m ahead of schedule. It’s a very strange feeling… I don’t feel rushed or anything. Let’s see what I’ve still got to do… Velvet Sew the top together Sew the sleeves together Fix the underskirt to the overskirt STAR APPLIQUES OF DOOM Cornelius: Fucking everything, Man Make the vest Make the cape Find some pants Wtf about...
I decided to do a little shopping today, and found both of the wigs I need for this year’s Otakon. I’ve got the one for Velvet. It’s not quite as LIGHT as I would have wanted, but I like the way it lays, and it’s a good length for me. Plus, it looks nice paired against the red hood and black lace. AND HOSNAP I FOUND A WIG FOR WONDER WOMAN. Going to be making this...
The magic of Nail Polish
As many of you cosplayers know, the right color Spray Paint can get to be expensive. Floral paint, glass paint, metallic paint… The list goes on. And I was laying in my bed, really wanting to paint the crystals for my Velvet cosplay, but feeling way too drained to go and buy the paint. So I figured I would rummage and see what I could come up with in my house. Lo and behold, I had blood...
Cosplay Tip: #009: Quick Way to Make a Pattern
projectcosplay: A personal pet peeve of mine is drafting patterns. I HATE DRAFTING PATTERNS from scratch because they take forever. I have a collection of drafted patterns but for some reason, with cosplay, many of the patterns cannot be reused. Because of this, I have learned one shortcut method to patterning. Here is a tip on how to quickly and easily make a pattern. Find good reference...

Me: Don't deny my love.

Cosplayers when a convention is coming
3 months before: I still have time to do that cosplay.
2 months: Still have time
1 month: Well, half of it is done I guess.
2 weeks: OH MY GOD NOTHING IS DONE *works ass off for 2 weeks and manages to finish cosplay*
Day of the con: How.
So. My victorian Raven cosplay isn’t happening this year. I can’t get it done with all of this shit going on with my mother being bitchzilla. Motherfucking bullshit. That was my ONE thing … My project… Fuck if I can do shit right anymore.
The only thing I hate about sewing:
I have pre-registered for Otakon
And …wow… Just… I’m really starting to feel like it’s con-season now. I have my cosplays lined up too! Friday: Gwendolyn - Odin Sphere (Armour) Saturday: Raven - Teen Titans (Victorian 1800’s AU)
That Time of Year Again
Alrighty. It’s the first of the year, which means it’s time for this girl to start lining up her cosplays for Otakon 2012. Thing is, I recently did my big goal cosplay. While I’m re-wearing that, I can’t enter it in competition at the same con again. So I’m looking for something new to do. I’m always open to any and all suggestions, you can contact me on...
And it's that time of year again!
Time to decide on my cosplays for Otakon 2012. I’m taking any and all suggestions. So…drop me an ask~
Final to do list:
Gwendolyn: last minute bodice fitting add gold band/any extra frills buy a petticoat install zippers on the “shin guards” Emil: 2 belts to finish add yellow bits to the pants gloves Sailor Jupiter: re-make gloves get a haircut re-make hip roll
*spazzing over wig emergency now* be back when I'm...
Oh, so yeah. I got the fiberglass resin. I also...
Let’s get to this shit.
I've been slacking off on my cosplays recently…and...
and really, the last thing i want is to end up on 4-chan as a horrible cosplayer
