Today I got the Sheik hat done. It was really fun sewing all the strips on. Made from old bedsheets, inside the hat is completely finished, only the strips sewn onto the hat where left with raw edges, to create a more realistic ‘wrap’ effect.
I made this tank out of some stuff I found in a bag of scraps that was given to me. The red and white stripes reminded me of Asuka bathing suit. Then a made a terrycloth patch of Sachiel’s face/faceplate, with button eyes! Its so cute! I love it! the super full butterfly sleeves look awesome too and give alot of movement.
Unit 01 couldn’t help himself. See angel, will smash.
Yup that’s my new Eva Shirt. Ok back to Zelda Costumes now that my sewing machine is fixed!!
Today my friend Eno’s mother gave me three huge bags of fabric, and in it was this beautiful polka dot crepe. Oh it was just delightful, so I made it into a simply breezy skirt with a heart shaped pocket, w/ embroidery from UrbanThreads.com
“So the maples formed a union,
And demanded equal rights.
‘The oaks are just too greedy,
We will make them give us light.’
Now there’s no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law:
And the trees are all kept equal,
By hatchet, axe and saw”—The Trees, By rush
I’m a temp work gap, I finished one major project, and am waiting on materials to start the next project. So in between sketching costumes for Titus Andronica, (and My little Ponies) I made this two little hair accessories for myself, since I hardly make anything for myself these days.
The glue job is pretty rough, but again, this is for myself, so I care slightly less than I do about the clothes I make for you! The fabric was the top edging of a bed sheet.
This flower is attached the headband, instead of being a clip. The head band was a bedsheet, and the flower was scraps from my Trixie cosplay flag. The Feathers where left over some multiple old projects.
A few month ago Eno let me use her beautiful body to be the template body for my new Plus Sized line. In the proceeding months, I made her these Jimjams as a thank you gift, and while they sat in my closet, undelivered, she worked hard, and lost a ton a weight. The pajama’s are still comfy, but has been made with her bigger size in mind so their a bit roomier now than originally intended.

A Tute for SCIENCE! Aperture science logo Logo Stencil Tutorial.
Today as I was working, I stopped along the way to make this short tutorial on how to make a basic stencil, with an aged look. I’ll be using an Apeture Science logo as the base of the tutorial, but they principles apply to any design you want.
Things you will need:
Some thick paper (you can do it with regular paper but it’s a bit tough) Exacto knife paint green scrub sponge Shirt, hoodie, or whatever you’re stenciling onto Piece of Cardboard Image I found this Vector on Deviantart most handy for making any size you want. Stencil glue or a glue stick
Use an exacto to cut the image out where you are want the paint to show through. DON’T BE STUPID-use a cutting board, and don’t cut yourself.
Use your stencil glue and apply to the back side of the stencil.
Wait ten minutes!! If you don’t the glue will stick to the fabric and won’t come off. The glue should be tacky, not wet.
Put a piece of cardboard under the fabric so you have a hard surface to work on, also so you don’t get paint on the floor.
Press it down hard, so it sticks completely.
Mix your paint. I used silver, blue, and a little glow in the dark. Mix thoroughly.
Time for that green scrubby! You can use a smaller piece than this if you want.
Dab your stencil lightly, don’t move it, or smear with you, or you will likely lift the stencil and you won’t have crisp edges.
Do not remove the stencil until it’s dry. Just be patient, this is a test. There will be cake if you pass.
When dry, carefully peel stencil off, and use a hot dry iron to set the paint. Wear and Enjoy!
