This is what I do at work.
That is about 200 frilly sprons there.
If I never have to look at red polkadots again ill be happy.
This is what I do at work.
A custom order came in for three Zeon patches this week. Sure are alotta spacenoids living planet side these days…
Sorry I’ve gone silent! With the SXSW Gaming Expo this weekend we’re really busy getting our costumes ready!
Am I going to see any of your lovely faces this Sunday?
The Captain Makeup Test!
So We’re still short buttons, button holes from the closure buttons, belt loops on the pants, suspender and second belt, holster, and dog tag
But other wise the big stuff is all done done! I’m proud to report these are the first pair of mens pants with pockets AND fly I’ve ever made completely from my own pattern and had it all work out perfectly! It’s amazing what you can do, when you just try! I’m so proud of myself (pants progress shots to come when I get un-lazy enough to go find my cord)
Pants details front and back. It’s hard to see but there ARE pockets in the side seams of the pants with the detail flappy thing as well.
There’s some glove shots in there, I didn’t make the glove but I added the cuffs on just as I did on the Seras, becasue frankly they just don’t make men’s gloves with cuffs li ke that.
Also want to point out the belt is made by us too. Completely from scratch.
Joe did his OWN eyeliner make up. It was his first attempt and I would say it was a complete success. I’m so proud, he can put on his own make up <3 That’s a dedicated cosplayer right there! (we did forgo foundation and contouring today however, just eye makeup.)
We’re sitting pretty on getting every thing done on time right now and I’m really confident about the SXSW contest as well as out trip to Allcon.
These are by far, my favorite, and more challenging costumes I’ve ever sewn, and everything came together just perfectly. I’m so proud of myself. I did alot of things I’ve never done before because I was afraid it would be hard. Turns out, I’m more skilled than I thought I was, so when I did try, it all went easy peasy lemon squeezy! THIS is what I love about cosplay! There is also some new way to challenge myself, and my skills. And with each new costume I get to learn more, and improve as a seamstress and as a designer! You never know what you CAN do, till you decide that you WILL do it.
Maybe I shouldn’t post my skype on Tumblr anymore. >.>//
Did you get a penis?
No, but he immediately asked me to get on cam with him and take off my shirt.
I don’t even HAVE a camera on this computer. -___-
So excited! I just got commissioned to make this beautiful costume for a friend of mine! I can’t WAIT to get started on it!!
What? You didn’t know I was available for commissions?
Of course I am! Just send me a message about a costume or custom garment you want made and we’ll figure out an option that works best for you!Skype @ siren.onthe.rocks or email email@example.com
Seras Blouse is FINISHED! Spent a few hours at work yesterday working on it and a few more today. Got all the piping put on the collar and the collar attached.
The second and thrid pictures are just showing how the piping was made and then attacked.
The Iron Eagle emboirderies I made for The Captain’s hat and Jacket are ready to go on to the coat tomarrow which means I can finish up the coat!
And then close ups of Sera’s collar. The front part actually comes all the way off.
With the exception of the triangular tabs on the front, every button on the blouse is in a real functioning button hole.
All I have left for Seras is the high highs needs to be cover stitched with elastic.
From here on out it’s just finishing The Captain! Should have it done by this weekend at the latest! Then I can spend all next week painting my cannon <3 <3 <3
A few weeks ago a cosplayer messaged my Etsy and wanted AoT patches, but they needed them in a big hurry for a convention.
I whipped those babies up and sent them to her that night, and they made it in time for the convention, I was so glad.
Just this week I had to do much the same thing with another etsy seller, asking them do basically do me a favor so I could get the cosplay item I needed from them on time.
Not only did he print out my decals before I even paid for them he got them shipped out with in HOURS of me paying so they would be here early enough!
Laughing reaper, you are awesome! https://www.etsy.com/shop/LaughingReaper
just goes to show you: what goes around, does come around.
A Fedora is classy as fuck. The Trilby is like it’s douchey younger cousin that is easier to get a hold of but still looks okay if you wear it with the right fucking outfit .
You have been educated.
BLESS THIS POST
Seras Make up and Wig test!!
Clearly, the blouse isen’t done and I don’t have my thigh highs, also this is NOT the belt I will be wearing.
Wig cut by Kat, my sister, and Styled by Tabathia Wilson, striaght up I had no hands on that wig at any time, except for touch up styling.
Got my contacts in, and my new fangs (custom made for me by Dead South Fangs), butt and breast prosthetic, and full make up.
I wanted to go easy on the make up for this one, more pale foundation, and just easy eyelines, top and bottom, and little eys shadow for definition and light.
Frankly, I’m in LOVE
Thanks to Jay Justice for pointing these out to me!!
