-A bolero for Genis. Found out after looking at a photo that I've screwed up on the texture direction; most of the bolero bar one of the front pieces have their woven pattern horizontally, and *that one front piece* goes vertically instead. I have just enough fabric left for remaking the front piece, though now I have to rip the seams off the carefully laid down ribbon, which was unraveling a lot in the first place. I hope it survives.

I have finally found sometime to work on a cosplay now that I'm done school whoot. I'm excited to start working on Holo from Spice and Wolf, her outfit from season 2. Just cutting out the pattern piece today I'm going to have to tweak it a bit hopefully it works out.

But none of this can happen until my room is clean and I have somewhere to do all of this without driving my husband nuts.
I have the same problem right now, I start to clean my room so I can get started but there is just so much stuff and I'm bad about having places to store everything. Hopefully we can both get our rooms clean soon and get to work.

A picture is worth a thousand words! I wish it were warmer out, the resin is going to take ages to cure on this.

It depends on the ambient temperature. The ratio of hardener to resin should always be the same. In warm weather, it typically takes several hours. Cold weather, you'll be leaving it overnight, or even longer. It's 16 degrees out right now, so it'd be a general poor ideal overall to resin it right now. I've set up the space heater to fix that.

Someone wanted to charge me $100 to make a custom patch for this P4 jacket. So, I'm sewing one myself. Here's to learning how to embroider by hand! Started the project tonight. My eyes are blurry, but it's going to be so worth the time and pain..... I hope.

I need to get back to my Esmeralda costume. I was using muslin to experiment with a few patterns, as I want to see what they look like before using those patterns on the more expensive fabric. I also have some ideas for another Twilight Sparkle outfit, only this one will be made rather than store-bought. Need to order my wig and horn/ears set as well.

I have several Pokemon ideas, too, but I need to do more sketches first.

The jacket is 100% complete! *Kermit arms!*
That sucker is entirely hand stitched (save for the white jacket itself. All it was was a white windbreaker. Everything else I added by hand.) The patch is made from scratch, dyed, hand embroidered in 3 pieces, stitched together, and then sewn by hand to the jacket. This is as accurate as I am capable of making this jacket at this time.

It's finished! *hands her bleeding eyes over to someone else to wash.*


((used that image because it's one of the few I have that show the patch, too.))

Next up: The long sleeved orange shirt w/ yellow V-neck. That's a weekend project. ...I think I should invest in a sewing machine.

right now I am about to start doing Trickster Mode Jane from Homestuck. Hoping I can afford all the materials.

So on the list of things to buy:
Pink Wig
Blue Glasses
Pink and Blue tights (I can't make those)
Blue Circle Lenses
Yellow and Orange-Yellow Fabric
Blue Fabric and Blue Lace
Pink beads for the 'sprinkles on the Cupcake headdress
Headband to attach cupcake to
Moldable Plastic and green and red paint

I have Red hightop Converse and I can paint part of them green to match so I'm good there.
I have a feeling this is going to be pricey and emotional. I can't sew dresses for shit right now. My mother is a seamstress so that will help a hell of a lot.
Any advice would be sweet as I am a newbie cosplayer.

Currently working on my Military!Dave uniform, aswell as a poofy Maid dress for my Maid!Equius cosplay.
The Uniforms almost done, just got to sew on the sleeves and decals.
I also gotta sculpt the horns for Equius, along with buying the grey body paint. Im stuck on if I should use ben nye or latex body paint. Hmmm.
