Post Your Progress Pics Thread!

Hello, all!

It seems like we get an abundance of new threads whenever someone wants to post progress photos, so here's a thread for it! Post your WIPs, makeup tests, pieces on your dress form/mannequin... anything that you're in the midst of making is welcome!

Stars, this is a great idea for a thread! I see these things all the time as well, so it's great that there is now an official thread for it.

I think I'm finally officially done with everything for Fem!Link to debut on Saturday at MegaCon... Doing a hair and makeup test on Friday. Now that we have a thread, I'll post pics on Friday! I know I'm going to pull my hair to the front of my right shoulder, but haven't decided if I'll do a fancy braid or curl it. Curls will eventually fall out, but the braid isn't really canon, so. However, I'll probably end up just doing the fancy braid. Also, this might progress to me trying on the entire ensemble with a small photoshoot if I can convince my mom to take pictures. We live in a community that has lots of beautiful flowers and a small forest-like section of trees, so I'd be able to get some good pictures just wandering around my neighborhood. I also need to practice my ocarina!!

I really like the idea of this thread as well! I think a lot can be learned by watching other people work.

At the moment I do have a couple of progress shots and as a newbie I have the habit of screwing things up :^)
I'm actually wondering if I should use bones here ? It might be way too late as the 'corset' has been sewn already. (it doesn't really look a lot like a corset though, haha). I don't have a fitting mannequin yet, so I'm sorry for the awkwardness here!

And a makeup test from a while ago (awkward selfie alert c; );

It's the first time I've ever applied makeup, so it may not look completely accurate. I looked up some tutorials and such on youtube, but critique is always welcome!

Aww, thanks guys! Glad people think it's useful.

As for my own projects, I'm doing two simultaneously now. First is the Miraculous Ladybug (dancer AU), which features a custom baseball cap. I did some work on the laser cutter to get these cool mirror-back letters:



I've since tinted the edges of the letters red. Just gotta actually bolt them down to the hat. And painting all the spots is going well!




I've also started on Judal's (Magi) wig, which omg is such a terror. I'm currently carving 12 foam spheres in various sizes to make odango, and then it's gonna be time to glue hair 5ever. OTL Photos later today!

It's done rather than WIP, but since I finished it fairly recently I figured I may as well post it here. This is the last thing I finished, Jacob Frye's coat from Assassin's Creed Syndicate. I'm very pleased with how it turned out; I think it might be the best thing I've made yet.


And here's an early picture of the whole costume:

Oh wow that is absolutely amazing looking. The tailoring on that is spectacular! Well done!


I'm currently working on my Scarlet Witch costume, which I have moved on to the fabric portions - but since all that is right now is a rough cut of the corset pattern out of neon pink cupcake scrap fabric, not very interesting for photos.

I do, however, have the nearly completed crown for this costume. I took a video of it, because the still photos just weren't doing the sparkly justice:

Now to just make the last few dangling accents, add some paint in a few places, and its done.

I made an imgur gallery of the WIPs of my keyblade/Rainfell: http://imgur.com/a/xvpCb

I'm updating it as I go. But I haven't updated this album for like a week or so and I need to get on that later today. >.>

My Lulu progress pics so far.
Can't do much else until my corset arrives but it'll be full speed ahead from then on!
Also noticed the skirt is sitting weird due to the mannequin being too near the couch/printer.

Just debuted Fem!Link on Saturday at MegaCon!! I literally finished it the day before the con. And, after searching at every store I could think of (including one big box store and three specialty beauty stores), I ventured into the black persons' wig store to finally find my bangs... But I wasn't shunned or thrown out like I thought I would be. The dude was actually really, really nice and happy that I found what I needed.

Full Costume

Random Selfie

I had the very best time, and will probably re-wear it at a second con (I've never done that before!) in August at Tampa Bay Comic Con!

@Krysteline I can't see any of your images!

Dancer Marinette is coming along! Really happy with the acrylic letter hat, it was super fun.

Can't decide if I want the pants waistband to be red or black though. Shoes will be black with red laces, if that makes a difference. Thoughts?

@Stars Looking at your character's canon outfit, there's a lot more red than black. Therefore, I'd suggest you make the waistband red. It would add more color in the back too!

Okay cool, thanks! That's kinda what I was thinking too, but it's more a matter of time crunch now (so few days left OTL)
