So currently I'm working on two cosplay that I will use for SVS-con this year, and I'm looking super much forward to both of them.
This weekend Line will stop by and visit me and Nadia for a cosplay/horror-weekend, and I'm looking super much forward to that! :3
I have a plan for this weekend and a goal for my cosplays I want to make, and I wanted to share that with you guys.
Today I spend a lot of time finding the right patterns for her.
I've decided to make her dress.. or tunic... or whatever it is, in two parts; A "dress" and a corset. (Though I'm not making a REAL corset!) and right now the patterns for the "dress" is ready to go.
I'm still thinking a lot about how to do the corset, but I more or less have an idea of how to do it. Just need to test it. :)
Normally I HATE boot-covers, but I'm actually looking super much forward to making hers and I hope that I'll be able to make them stay up, so then they wont fall down all the time.
I got most of the details of how-I-want-to-make-what ready for a testing, but I'm still stuck at her necklace and earrings.. >__>; I hope to find a good solution for it! (I've already thought about clay, but I'd rather not use clay since it breaks easily)
I can't wait to finally wear this cosplay with my lovely Nadia (as Fenris) and Lisa (as Hawk) while party-bantering as much as we can get away with. :3
My plans for her is:
- Buy fabric for LEAST her "dress" and the corset.
- Make patterns for her armor and perhaps start on it,
- Make her gloves without details.
- Find out what to do with her jewelry
As you saw in my latest journal, I've been working on the wig, and I still need to do some small detail-cutting here and there.
New Moon is about 85% done. I have now started the painting. WIP pictures will be uploaded.
I've been looking for patterns today for Cutter as well, but have only found patterns for the pants. (And I'm looking SO MUCH forward to start on them!)
But I'm sure that I can make my own patterns for the shirt, since it's not that much of a complicated shirt.
I've been wondering for a long time, what kind of fabric I would use for the white shirt.
It was a gift from the Sun-village, so sure the fabric is more beautiful than the rest of his clothings, but I find it really hard to mix silk with wolf-pelt and suede. So I have decided to make it out of a rougher kind of fabric, since I doubt that it IS suppose to be silk (in "King of the Broken Wheel" vol 8, Leetha says "Soft as a baby mouse's fur. Humans.. Making such fine things! Wondrous!" to dress a human gives her as a 'thanks' for healing her sick daughter)
I'm still thinking about the pattern on his loincloth. I've been playing with the thought of using the end of a
peacock feather en stat of painting or embroider it. It takes such a long time and I'm too clumsy to make it look super awesome! XD;
I think that I've found the fabric that I want to use for his pelt-west. I see the color of his west very dark with shades of a lighter brown, and I have been looking everywhere for it. But my very good friend Sidsel was so kind to link me to a page where they had the exact same fabric as I was thinking about:
(See fabric here) but it's super expensive so I need to reconsider it.
And again, the jewelry is still a mystery to me, but I'm sure I'll find a solution. :D
Plans for him is:
- Find fabric for this shirt and pants
- Make the patterns for the shirt
- Make patterns for the shoes
- Start on the pants
It's super hard to find a good picture of this outfit, since he wear is loose for a very short time, by I found this page that shows ham from the side, back and behind.. I'm just making the design where his pants is loose, because I love it so much! ;W;
|CUTTER, Y U B A CARTOONHOTBOY???!|
Start of next month, me and my ElfQuest-buddies will order the ears. Lavi (Skywise) found the most awesome ears ever that is designed to after ElfQuest elf, and I can't wait to have try them out! :3Look how awesome they are!
Yeah that's about it. I hope to upload some WIP pictures after this weekend. :D
