WIP: August 2015 + Con Announcement!

Goodbye, summer. Hello, fall! Well, sorta. We’re still in 90+ degree weather, so really fall is more or less wishful thinking right now.

I sure have taken my sweet time with this costume! Originally, I anticipated it only taking 2 weeks, and had I not worked on other projects in between that probably would have been true. That said, it’s been nice to take a very leisurely approach with this costume. Having time to finish my hems by hand is a luxury I normally don’t have! I’ll share more about this costume after A-fest.

Whoooo!!!! Real progress! This project has been hanging over my head for months, so over the summer I decided to shuffle my cosplay line-up for the rest of the year and make it my priority for the fall. This month, I decided to go ahead and make one of the big pieces for the costume: the hoop skirt which will act as the base for the belts. You can read more about this project here.

This was one of my first embroidery projects. One of my returning clients asked if I’d make a 1970s Supergirl blouse to go with some hot-pants I altered for her a few months back. The basic shape was pretty simple. I used Simplicity 1779 as a base with a few alterations. Namely altering the front to cut on the fold and slashing and spreading the sleeve to accommodate a larger poof. I finished the neckline with bias tape since the main fabric was pretty thick and I didn’t want her to have to worry about a neckline facing flipping up in photos.

The fun part of this project was learning how to embroider. I definitely have a lot to learn, but I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out!

I added several projects to my Etsy shop this month! Lots of Whovians asked for Doctor Who themed prints, so I added 4 new clutches along with coin purses. I also made some pillows, but I haven’t photographed them yet. They’ll be up soon! Check everything out here. As always, if you have suggestions for product, feel free to ask!

Con Line-Up: AnimeFest 2015

Are any of you heading to A-Fest? Feel free to say hi if you see me!
