In progress Rapunzel: The embroidery is finally starting to look like something. One full side of the front panel has the solid stitch, and the other side is halfway done. Then I get to tackle the mass of the 6' radius circle skirt. Wish me luck D:

Taking the fluff out of Canterbury's wig. So much fluff, and the hot water's not doing much.

This is my plan, anyway I didn't want to make the hat completely from scratch, because I was worried about how to keep a brim from sagging.

JasonTerror, how about getting a cheap hat in the right shape and covering it with the right kind of material for your cosplay? Top Hats are super expensive too, that is why I am modifying a $3 hat
That's really creative! I'm impressed

Thanks I like to work things out myself like that

I've got the flu at the moment, so I didn't work on my costume yesterday even though I have the time But the cape is looking pretty epic. I'm very pleased with how it is turning out, and foresee plenty of random-cape-days in my future XD Next step for the cape is to hem it, and then I need to prioritise work on the top hat.

I'm about to cut out my "good fabric" that I got through Spoonflower (so there's no way I can get more before the time I need this done if I fuck this up) that I have to pattern-match.

I'm going to die.

I'm working on re-crafting a bone charm belt I have. I had one made but I redesigned the original bone charms so now I'm going for a new one.

Woo, I did it.

Mostly. I didn't cut out the last two pieces because I may or may not be able to pattern match them just due to how wide the fabric itself is - since the Spoonflower printing area is fairly narrow I want to make the the garment top first and see if the fabric is wide enough to match the two bottom parts I didn't cut out yet - it's only two "tails" in the back, so it's not the end of the world if it's just not possible to match them, but I'd like to try if I can!

And I didn't cut out the collar on account of I didn't make the pattern for it yet, but that's probably going to happen on Tuesday.

I have one week left! Ahhh

In general I just finished and debuted my Lady Loki cosplay and I found some problems with it that I want to fix before I wear it again.

At this very moment I'm trying to figure out how to make armour. I don't know why or what for, I just am.

Currently working on a Tiny Tina cosplay. So far I have everything started on except her pants, front bag, and vest. Plan on finishing her brown shirt and one of her socks today. I'm also making the horrible decision of making her backpack from scratch because I hate myself apparently. I'll probably work on finishing that today as well, not sure how far I'll get.
