I'm on a roll because I'm making 3 costumes this year and with complicated hair as well. I'm usually lazy till February for costume making for AN. Plus there ton of small items That it's best to get them done early as I usually drop these. lol

What's nor so hot is that the tights i dyed last night sucked up the dye TOO WELL! Way more saturated then I needed.

To placate my nerves I cut out Chewlins leaves and ivy ares and body for to sew today. Also stripped the Dancing flower down to it parts to re-skin. lol

Still working on Chewlin... hand sewing....


Also got my new stocking in, took a gamble on We love Color's Mint shade it it was perfect... >_< Should of just ordered from them to start with but I always got hit with costumes with them.

The Mint shade is warmer then what it looks like on screen and just a touch paler then the doll. I don't mind that as she is so electric the have a paler green skin is what I was hopping to dye my other stockings too.

I have not tried them on yet but I got the M/L size for my arms and the C/D size for my legs in the plus category. It was debatable if the A/B size would fir as I'm taller then the specked range for it and their is nothing worse then trying to squeeze into to small tights. Plus if they ended up being too tight they loose color from being stretched to much.

I'm just mad I wasted about $50 in 4 pairs of tight and dye. The ones I dyed are mostly ruined and the lime green I might not use for anything else. >_<

I would kill to have swatches from We love color. But I'm super thankful if they rip I can just buy a replacement. O_O Because I'll have I'll handing off of them....


Edit:
My fabric swatches came in last night. I ordered the bag deigned fabric as a Fat Quarter on Twill to turn it into a canvas bag. The design and colours turned perfect so all I have to do is sew it to a bag shape.

The bad news, my shirt and legging pattern looks really muted on the Organic Cotton Knit they have are it a much darker cream shade.

So I've had to order new swatches of the Neon palette I created for both (but not true neon). The shade are closer to the dolls clothes actually but with the warm ivory tone fabric they will end up darker.

The new shade where perfect!

I finished Chewlin last night.

But. I think I'll have to remake his head because he is to heavy! T-T It work but I'm so afraid that the whole thing will break due to wight on the spring gear. I don't want to worry about him getting broken during the con or cradle him by the head all day either. >_<

So finish making the leaf venus plant ears. Colouring the earrings in sharpie so that they still look like metal.

Work on Chewlin 2.0. Hate redoing him but he's got more details this time)

Waiting to order my fabric as I have $18 in sales to clear to go towards my Spoonflower order which is close to $100 in customer Jersey fabric.

Bought patterns! McCall group was having some online sales so I got all mt patterns for AN this way. So I got a t-shirt group legging and skirt patterns.

I was stuck a bit on Watashi but now I have to finish her for Con-G (the patterns help)

They are accurate to what you upload. The excepted 150 dpi files and what ever measurement you have at 150 dpi is the size they print.

If you upload an 300 dpi image it's prints twice the size then the original file because it double the size compare to the 150 dpi file.



Rochelle skirt is flocked black onto a rainbow fabric. O_O
There a product called Flockfolie that one Merida cosplayer used to add flocked detailed pattern to.

Another option is to layer velveteen over the mirror fabric.

Got Rochelle's wig/wefts, shoe designs are done. Doing wedges instead of wedged heels because they are more sturdy for me to walk in. Got the ear and wing pattern ready, the striped shirt, headband. Need a few more things though.
