Made from my own pattern and some clearance G.I. Joe fabric I picked up. This will not be for sale, it’s for me, but I am thinking about making more like this for the webshop. Maybe I should stop making clothes, and just makes sleep wear lol.
The downside of a flashed based website, is that if you’re like me, and have an iPhone, you can’t access them! In the world we live in today, how important is it that you have a website you can access via call phone, well Wix.com now offers a mobile phone website builder for free with it’s website packages. The Building is a bit clunky, but it dose serve it’s purpouse, and since it’s still in beta I’m looking forward to the changes they will make once they tested it further.
So, now if you access www.shinshayoriginals.com from your phone you will be taken to a simple version of the website where you can browse pictures, links, and info on me and my clothing!
The only difference between uptown and downtown, is therapy and Valium
Today I went shopping for more supplies, and picked up my machine from the shop, so now I can get some serious work done! I keep thinking San Japan is this weekend, but isn’t in fact till next weekend, so I have time to work on a few more little things for one of my costumes, and not have to stress out.
In my depression this week I picked at my nails more than I should have and their super sore, and despite sewing with a finger condom on (those plastic things they give you when you work in a restaurant and you cut your finger) it hurts to touch things (even type) So I’m going to make a bit of a break until tomorrow.
Let’s start with today Haul from shopping!
A bunch of tees! I’ll let you guess what the blue and orange are for :P. but other wise a few tees, a white hoodies, a dress shirt and skirt for my Rally costume all these came from the thrift store ( Savers on N. Burnet). 2 yards of NEW G.I. Joe Fabric, which I’m going to turn into a night gown for myself. As well as two great graphic novels (from halfpricebooks.com) World of Warcraft GN 3, and Elric by Micheal Moorcock. I love his book The Cornelius Chronicles, so I felt I should go this a fair shot too.
Tomorrow I’m getting my new bed delivered, my car fixed, and the exterminator is coming by to take care of those pesky scorpions that keep invading my house. If they would just stay outside I wouldn’t have to kill them, but alas. This is my house. Slowly but Surely things are looking up.
I’m proud to day I have slept less than 5 hours over the last three days. I’m praying for sleep tonight. :(
Have a comic shelf? Share it! Nothing says more about a person, than what kind of books he/she reads, and how they are organized!
Tomorrow I’m hoping to dry run another one of my costumes to make sure I got everything ready.
On Etsy I’ve been putting together some fun, and pretty geeky, treasury listings! check them out here!
I got my main sewing machine back today so I’ll be pounding out ALOT of new work aver the next few days. Remember if you see something you like, I’ll give you a great pre-sale deal on it, if you email me@ lorelei at shinshayoriginals.com
This is only partially upcycled. The Sweatshirt knit is new, and the official Hello Kitty fabric is from vintage bedsheets. The sleeve is embroidered with ‘Hello Beautiful’ in Pink and lavender and the font is a heart with hello kitty inside, satin stitched on with pink thread!
Well It’s back to this great Super Robot Wars Mission, and the sewing machine.
Is it strange this song makes me want to dance? I think I may choreograph a dance for it purely for my own entertainment. I love this movie so much. It’s so much my father it tears me apart every time. You’re truly not human if that movie doesn’t tear your heart apart just a little.
I was quite certain I posted this, and yet upon inspection, I have not.

So I finished my Sochie Costume yesterday! This is just a test run of my make up and costumes. I haven’t not purchased the gloves I need, so I don’t have them on yet, but I will before the convention. I would call it a 8 hour costume, done over three days. Also my hair is way long right now, I’m getting a hair cut (and a facial, yeah!) on Monday for perfect style (but not color) Sochie hair.
I forgot how much I love making cosplay. It’s so fun, and makes no sense haha.
The goggles and Ring where made by Zappa_slave using his Overskill! Thye look so awesome!
I’m excited for San Japan! Now to finish my Prop for Trixie/Michi, and find a new skirt for Rally Vincent (I’ve lost way to much weight since I wore it last >.<)
I guess It’s back to the sewing machine. Or WoW I can’t really make a decision on this yet. LOL
My dear Friend Steph asked me to make her a skirt like the Power Rangers summer skirt that is on my webshop. But Since I’m committed to one of a kind items I told her she could pick some other bedsheets besides power rangers (also I didn’t have enough PR fabric left), and she picked the Garfield I had on hand! And here is the long promised skirt I made for her!
Laying on the floor so you can see just how full the skirt is! Wearing it over my jeans doesn’t do it much justice! this style of skirt looks amazing on girls that have some junk in the trunk. Saddly I have Noassatall syndrome, But Steph has a magnificent backside, that will flatter the skirt as much as the skirt will flatter her ass-ets!
Been sitting on this for a while, but finally finished it today! Made from upcycled bedsheets but hand, by me. Will be avaliable for purchuse soon on Shinshayoriginals.com webshop. BUT if you feel you MUST have it, let me know and I can cut you a sweet pre-sale deal. This is a one of a kind piece, handmade.
Comfort fit elastic waist band fits up to 45in hips!
See the fullness? It’s about as full as a double circle skirt.
And this is me, hard at work on even more upcoming items!
But now it’s time for me to sleep! Good night Neverland!
Well, Amy Winehouse is dead, and I know you’ve heard it. Am I surprised? Absolutely no. Am I sad? Not really. I don’t really get broken up about death, weather is a close friend or relative or a famous person. Everyone dies, this is inevitable. Amy Winehouse is singing in hell in those fuck me pumps. And I’m going to dance for the dead.
After spending over 8 hours on the hat yesterday, I managed to make the body of the jacket in under 5 hours. All I have left to do is put the collar on, And go pick up an appropriate undershirt (white turtle neck with a rider scarf), grey gloves, and some pants that are the same black as the jacket. The googles are nearly finished, and are just waiting for is Zappa to put the metal rings on, and for me to then lace up the elastic on them! I’m excited about this! For San Japan my Cosplays are TENTATIVLY:
Sochi Heim from Turn A Gundam Anna Feng from Hungry City Chronicals (steampunk) Trixie/Michi Sakamoto from Speed Racer/Mach a Go-go Rally Vincent from GunSmith Cats!
I may or may not throw together a Dr. Girlfriend costume or Makoto from Street Fighter. We’ll see what happens between now and then! I have so many other costumes for work on for other people that I should probably just focus on those!
Just realized what a douche I look like in these pictures, sorry about that. lol
May Shai’hulud clear the sands before you, Lorelei
