I've been sooooo slow about making progress on actually sewing... but I've done a ton of design work on another cosplay, so that counts for something, right...??

Heyy, I could use some opinions :'D
I'm thinking about weathering the cosplay I'm working on since I think it would suit the character and world, but I've never really done it before and the character's clothes actually look pretty clean in game (even though she travels and fights a lot).
Should I continue or stop and try to clean the clothes again?
Some references of the character (one 'normal' and one 'wounded/dirty' version)



And what I was working on (excuse me for the very awful front-camera pic. I promise it doesn't look that awful in real life :') )
https://scontent-bru2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...d6&oe=5A039B33
And how it sorta looked like when it was 'clean'
https://scontent-bru2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...21&oe=5A0C4D5B

(the end of the blue biais is just badly sewn because I'm a newbie who had no idea what I was doing. It's actually the reason why I consider re-sewing that as well, although it was a hell to do x'))

Ideas/input would be greatly appreciated <3

If you can darken the chain mail, either with spray paint or acid, it would unify everything together much better. Darker and less shiny and new. I would also dirty up the light blue just a little more darker. just slightly. It looks good as it is though. If you want really want to, you could remake the white/beige potion in a darker beige fabric.

I am not going to go to Otakon this year, but I still want to do some cos-making so I am now deciding my "line-up" to start building. I know one I've wanted to do for a while, which is a Male!Claymore character.

I just realized that for Halloween I'd be at school this year (assuming I have a class on Tuesday) so I thought of wearing Rin to school - but I'm a bit skeptical of doing that because I don't have a great a time in school. I don't really need to be noticed, and in retrospect I could have worn something better in my third year if I had known I'd be back in cosplay. But it would be fun to dress up at school again, only I did that in my first year of college.
I guess I could bring Rin to do a shoot, and change into manga Yuzu because well, academia!

Akoya is done and I can't do anything else for Otakon until Makoto's wig gets here, so I'm starting work on the bias tape for Licht. I'm converting my old Ayato Naoi jacket into his which means I have to figure out what the hell I did with all the extra buttons back in 2014

I made a decision today do Tyrael from Diablo/Heroes of the Storm as well as a male Claymore warrior from the Claymore anime. First order of business is to work on references and piece it out.

I got fabric for Newt's skirt but couldn't find the right color for the vest. Also I didn't realize until I got home that I forgot to get thread.

Oh GOD, what have I gotten myself into making 30 plush bats with embroidered faces for a bat sanctuary fundraiser.... this is not going to be a quick job. While my corset materials sit in a pile on the couch saying "Build meeeeeee!"

Both of my next planned cosplays are going to be somewhat original pieces. Part of my whole process is making sure I am as close as possible to the original source and with an original piece, I cannot do that so much. I guess I should do Claymore first as that is just a... I don't know. TECHNICALLY, I will be using the female characters as a reference so it would be a genderbend, but there ARE/were male warriors in the group at one point, so it could just be a male one.

Lunaflora; Thank you so much! I was actually scared to spraypaint the chainmail, because I was nervous it would make it look less realistic, but I followed your advice and actually did it. It looks so much better now :')

I just arrived from a local comic con and it was such a perfect day! I met some amazing people and even somehow placed second in a cosplay catwalk.
Suuuuper tired now.
