Wondercon, SDCC/Comikaze progress

I finally have stuff worthy enough to post! I started working on my niece's Sailor Chibi Moon cosplay that she'll be wearing with me as I cosplay as Sailor Pluto for our Sailor Moon group at Wondercon this year. She's excited to finally cosplay as Chibi Moon since I made her wig years ago for her birthday x'D I'm still fixing the skirt to the way she likes it so hopefully tomorrow I can post another progress photo.
I also have 2 cosplay gatherings that will be attending this month (one being next Sunday) and they're both Valentine theme so I decided to make this cosplay it's the Heartseller from the webcomic called "Hearts for Sale" or aka The Hearthsmith. I have the skirt part done with the fabric that I had at home but I ran out so I need to go buy some more along with white fabric to finish the apron as well. For the skirt I used Butterick B5882 and for the apron I just drafted my own pattern. Once I get more fabric I'll update on how I'm making this cosplay.
 And for Comikaze (and hopefully San Diego Comic Con) I'm going to be cosplaying as Emma Swan in her red ballgown from Once Upon A Time with my friend who will be cosplaying as Snow White in her purple ballgown :) today I styled my blonde wig (it's the base wig of the Jeannie wig from Arda Wigs in Platinum Blonde). I'm gonna need to buy some blonde bobby pins to hold the wig to my head better. I'm waiting for Joanns to have a sale on their Casa Satin so then I can buy 8 yards or so in Tango Red so then I can get started on the dress!
That ends my progress so far so I'll be posting more later~ <3

Long Time No See!

Hello everyone! It's been so long (like years!) since I last wrote here! But I'm hoping to change that by making posts and adding pictures of my progress and hope that it will help anyone with anything they need help with. I just recently attended ALA (Anime Los Angeles) and here are some pictures of me as Gou (Kou) Matsuoka, Queen Mikasa Ackerman, Dark Zelda and finally as Kuro Usagi (minus a few stuff like my bunny ears T^T )

I also got the chance to meet Osric Chau!!!
Aaaaand I got to meet both Matthew Mercer and David Vincent! <3

Cosplay Update

So I ordered my Mikasa wig and it came in! I had a lot of fun playing with it and taking pictures at night xD

I'm so excited! I even was able to get the fabric to make my scouting legion jacket! Though I'm still trying to figure out how I'm gonna make the pattern first for the jacket O_O I was so scared when I looked at it online because it looks different then it does in person (so glad I went and got it in person haha!) Here's what type of fabric I bought:

 and here it is in person and in different lighting and a bonus cat picture! x3


  Wish me luck on figuring this stuff out! 8D

Yay some Zatanna Zatara progress

I was finally able to start working on modifying this jacket that I bought to make my tailcoat jacket for my Zatanna Zatara! All that is left to do on this jacket is make the tails longer and pointy! x3

I simply just put on the jacket and quickly marked a small line where I wanted the front of the jacket to stop at. I then proceeded to take the jacket off, fixed my line, took out the buttons that were on the jacket and then cut through the fabric. I've just sewen up the ends and I'm still trying to figure out on how I'm going to make the tails longer. As soon as i figure it all out I'll update! :)

Woot! I'm back! I went to a gathering 2 weeks ago and here's a picture of me from the gathering, still need my bowtie and school patch and gotta be brave and cut the bangs xD I dressed up my niece as Fluttershy and my nephew as Darth Vader! :)

And just recently I've decided that I wanna cosplay from the new anime series: Attack on Titan! I've already chose to be Mikasa, Sasha and Christa! :D I remembered that I have this jacket that I could so totally use as a pattern to make my Scouting/Survey/Recon (which ever name you prefer xD ) Legion jacket! :D I can't wait! I'll be cosplaying as Mikasa first and I think Sasha will be second and then Christa all depends whether I buy Christa's wig first for dye my hair brown for Sasha.
Christa, Mikasa and Sasha
