LOOK WHAT I MADE.

I was inspired by a shirt at Forever 21 that I had tried on a while back, but couldn’t afford at the time.

This shirt makes my boobs look great, and I’m a huge fan of anything with 3/4 sleeves, but it constantly rides up when I wear it and it was getting to the point where I just never wore it anymore (but I refuse to throw anything out, because, fabric) I had some yellow tulle that I bought a ton of a while ago because it was on clearance. I wanted to make *something* tonight so this seemed like the perfect project :) I’m so happy with how it turned out.

also i may have been dancing to Beyonce during these selfies mwahahaha

Do it Yourself: New52 Wonder Woman Corset

Finally!!! Pattern and How-To!

Katsu 2015 plans.

leftrightchu:

Well I have surprisingly already started getting ready for Katsucon 2015. I am super excited to go and I am ready to cosplay after a year and a half break!

Pyrrah Nikos from RWBY is one of the cosplays I am currently working on.

She is just super awesome. Nice, strong, pretty and down to earth! I can’t wait to portray her character! I have already made her skirts and they turned out beautifully! I draped fabric for the first time! though it is surprisingly heavy. I am hoping once I make the belt it will really help support all the weight.  I have decided to also try something new and working with worbla for this costume! I have never made any armor before or worked with worbla at all and I am really nervous and excited for it. 

I am also going to NYC next week for school. (Woo!) So I have looked into a lot of stores for fabric. I am excited to go to spandex world. I noticed that they have four and two way stretch fake leather which I think I am going to pick some up to make her corset out of. 

While I am at spandex world I think I am also going to pick up some four way stretch holographic fish scale fabric, it look beautiful online, I hope it’s as great in person to make a Mera from Aquaman out of.

I figured I already have a wig that would work well for her and I can use some of the Worbla from Pyrrah to make her crown and wrist cuff out of. I am going to try to draft the cat suit pattern for her before I leave for NYC so I know exactly how much to buy. 

I am very excited to be these strong women <3  Hopefully I am not over booking myself and I am trying to space everything out so I don’t have pre-con stress especially since I will be in the middle of my final semester at college.

I’m excited to see these, especially the holographic fabric for Mera!

October - Costumes
So i know a lot of you make your own costumes and seeing as Halloween is coming up fast i figured that would be the focus of this month. A lot of you will be busy working on something like that anyway, it&#8217;s not technically a group project but we don&#8217;t have any rules, so why not?
Even if you don&#8217;t make all of your costume i still want to see them! Same goes for decorations (pumpkins! pumpkins!). Group projects are going to be more of showing what you&#8217;re doing for the holidays for the next few months as most of us will be busy making gifts for Christmas or Thanksgiving. If you&#8217;re not doing anything for Halloween this year lets see what you&#8217;re making anyway, hopefully we&#8217;ll be back to scheduled group projects after new year but feel free to throw me any ideas you have for future projects, I&#8217;ve already had a few scribbled down from you guys so don&#8217;t think I&#8217;m ignoring any of your suggestions!

October - Balkan Puzzle

I always find quilt block names quite interesting, some are pretty obvious and others seem like they’ve just been given the first thing that pops into someones head. The Balkan Puzzle has been around for a very long time apparently and i think it’s an interesting block, it looks much more complicated to non quilters than it actually is so it’s good cheat block.

You can find lots of different variations and tutorials online for it, so feel free to use any of them. I just pick the most simple tutorials as a guide and ‘In color order’ always has clear basic pictures.

Use whatever size squares and seam allowance you’ve been using up until now, i think most of these have all been 12.5 when finished but I’ve been using different sized squares for my own blocks so double check before you go cutting fabric. I try to find tutorials with the same size blocks but sometimes i can’t, or sometimes i forget because i automatically size things up or down myself, so always double check because i suck.

Again, make sure to tag me in your post once you’re done. If you use the @ function it comes up in my notifications so i don’t miss it but if you think i have, just mail me the link to your post. And if you need any help, feel free to send me a message either on here or on my own tumblr desiring-the-fall.
