WIP Wednesday: July Edition

Apparently my cosplays are actually agents of Hydra. Every time I knock one out, three more spawn in its place. Here’s a quick look at what I’m *hoping* to have finished out in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed that I don’t get roped into twelve more 0_o

Sailor Jupiter: 

This has taken far more time than is reasonable. Do you have those costumes that are within your skill level, but you can’t seem to make it *just* right? That’s this costume for me. I have seam ripped those sleeves at least four times. But! I am going to finish this one. I need to in order to salvage my ego. Fortunately, I’m getting past the absolute worst parts (hopefully), and I’m down to the collar, hemming the skirt, and styling the wig. I have a shoot planned with Aperture Ashley at A-fest, so I’d better get busy!

Sailor Rogue: 

I realized about a week ago that I’m not going to be able to knock out a full extra costume for A-fest, so I decided to work with what I have. The result: Sailor Rogue! I’ve had this idea baking in my brain for months, but this artist’s piece is what tipped the scale. Fortunately, I already have everything but the tights on hand! I’ll be using various pieces from my Rogue and Sailor Jupiter costumes, and I have some spare gold satin from my Ms. Marvel dress for bows. I like the gold/green look better than green on green. I’m tentatively planning to wear this the Sunday of A-fest.

Captain Marvel Dress: 

This is my planned Monthly Stitch project for August, and I’m hoping to have it done for Fan Appreciation Day. I’m not going to get around to a full Captain Marvel this year, so I’m stashbusting and reinterpreting her design for a dress! I adore this one by Contagious Costuming, which was my inspiration for this project. I’d love to incorporate the raglan sleeves, but I also need to knock this out pretty quickly, so I may just go with a sleeveless version. Any thoughts? I’m hacking the bodice with my Cambie skirt. Because pocketses.

That actually should read Simplicity 1606. Derp.

Street Fighter Cammy:

This is actually a commission. A cosplay friend contacted me about a week ago asking if I knew anyone who could commission this for her in time for A-fest. I still had some green fabric leftover from Rogue, so I decided to help out. It’s pretty much just my Ms. Marvel leotard with adjustments made to the leg hole openings. I’m done with the base, so I’m hoping to have it finished by tomorrow.

I have a few other things in the works (including some non-cosplay projects), but I won’t get started on them until after A-fest, so y’all will just have to wait until next month’s post 😉 What’s on your project table right now?

  1. You are working on a lot of things at once! I think those sailor jupiter sleeves look fantastic from your photo – but I know sometimes a lot of seamripping can be involved when you get your eye on perfection and a garment just doesn’t live up to that. When is A-Fest? Any chance you will be heading to DragonCon in late August? My project table includes costume that involves less sewing and more Worbla, as well as some odds and ends to finish up details on a couple I finished earlier this summer (www.questsofquirkiness.com).

    1. Thanks! Now that I’m done with the sleeves and hip roll, the rest doesn’t seem too bad. Afest is the weekend of Aug. 16, so just 2 weeks away!

      I was planning to go to Dragon Con, but moving and travel have put a massive dent in my budget 😦 Hope you have a blast! Your build looks great.
