Hi Gilbert, I don’t have one, but have very much been considering it! A lot of my older work can be found here and here. :)

Making of post here.

I’ve been a bit terrible with updating things whilst I’m making them because I keep having doubts about finishing them - I’m sorry. D:

But I’ve just finished my first comic cosplay :D Black Widow as seen in Captain America: Winter Soldier, which I made to meet Stan Lee in. Originally I was going to buy the body suit and make the accesories, but ended up doing the reverse when I found the perfect textured jersey knit.

I started by making a mock up with fabric (as it was predominantly a one-way stretch) and marked out where the design lines and features would need to go. This was then cut up to make pattern pieces for all the various segments that made up the suit. All the pleather sections are edged in self-made piping, and the knees and elbows are re-inforced with another textured stretch fabric - whilst all being fully lined in black lycra.

But you looooooooove lemon cakes DDDD:

are you going to be cosplay this year at supanova???
clamwings clamwings Said:

Yes! I will be :) This year I’ll be at CoastNova and MelbNova (like usual, lol) and SydNova for the first time~

Plans for the first part of the year are looking a bit like this at the moment…

Though it’s likely to change depending on how much time I have.

Progress on Elsa is going well! Should have her all done in the next two days - ready for Europe. :D

My bustier is being worn over a corset, so I only had to make a very basic pattern as the stretch in the fabric would adjust to fit. The detail on the skirt was painted the other night and took about 2 1/2 hours. I’ve also done some initial styling of the wig, and starting properly putting her cloak together.

Just have to do a bit more painting, finish the cloak, style the wig, and maybe make some gloves.

Earlier this week I was commissioned to make a plushie of Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service, it’s been a while since I’ve made a plushie, but it was still really fun!

Hopefully I’ll have some more photos from the photoshoot soon. :D

Blog entry detailing the creation process is here. :)
