Hi! I was last year (oops the website hasn’t been updated >x<), but this year I’m on the judging panel. :D

In addition to this page, and my fc2 blog (as well as instagram), I’ve just started up a Facebook page for those who wish to follow my progress there. :)

Sakizo’s illustrations, and circus are two of my favourite things, so I had a lot of fun making this costume!

I pretty much started from top to bottom, creating my neck ruff and top hat with materials backed in interfacing and buckram.

As I was running short on time, I opted to make a cover for an underbust corset that was pre-bought instead of patterning from scratch - a wonderful option as it saved a lot of time patterning and sewing endless channels.

The main dress part is actually a strapless leotard which I embellished and attached the skirt to. The skirt was made up of three layers of 2-circle skirts which were all reinforced with fishing line.

Blog entry detailing the process is 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.

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see…
