Sorry that it’s been pretty quiet lately! I’ve been recovering from Dragon Con. I feel really good though, I got all of my craft crap off of the floor of my house and into storage so now it’s all organized! YEY. I’ll take a picture later :3
The next con we have planned is Jekyll Comic Con, on Jekyll Island. It’s a first year con so it’ll be small, but I will be fixing up my Phantom Assassin breastplate to be accurate and fit better. It’s amazing all of the small details you notice while you’re wearing the costume that you want to fix!
I might start working on Silencer slowly soon, as this is a pretty big project and I don’t want to procrastinate again. Silencer is Kyle’s next cosplay, and it will be debuted at Dragon Con 2015 :D We also have some fantastic surprise cosplays planned too!
Convention season is winding down, what are your winter plans?
Some Mako and Kill la Kill meet up spam from Dragoncon~ I’m not sure if any of the cosplayers have tumblrs, so if they do, please let me know!

I got the chance to see Korin a few times at Dragoncon, she’s super sweet and makes amazing costumes! She’s such an adorable Mako :3
I noticed you mentioned those fillable ornaments for worbla breastplates... I am chesty and was hoping the 200mm kind would work... then only saw it in the UK, not US. (Styrofoam did not like me.) Do you have ideas on a way to find one that size?
So I hope I understand what you’re saying, but I’m in the US and I bought my ornaments from here: http://factorydirectcraft.com/catalog/categories/1302_1039-acrylic_fillable_ornaments.html
I don’t see any that are 200mm, but with a little research I’m sure you can find one.
Hope that helps!
My first thoughts on worbla - for Blackpooled
blackpooled answered your question:blackpooled said: What was the tutorial? Curious…
I also have some sintra I’d like to use in the future so that would help too :D Also, how was worbla in practice vs. what you expected?
Okay so this info isn’t anything special I guess, but as someone who basically has only heard that worbla is a gift from the cosplay gods, I will pass onto you some things I struggled with. Maybe it can help you in your next project. This turned out hella long so I’ll put it under a cut:
Today’s #dragoncon snap is with @stellachuuuuu!! She looked so uber cute in her sailor scout outfit and she was really friendly! Yeeeeee 😍
blackpooled said: What was the tutorial? Curious because I’ll be using Worbla soon!
Actually it wasn’t a worbla tutorial!! It was an alternative with sintra. I’m so sad that I wasted precious worbla on something I have to throw away. Sorry :( BUT if you have any questions, I was working with worbla a lot for the first time so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. It was different than I expected.
yamneko said: its better than someone asking the same question you need answered and there being no answer
Haha, yes you’re right. Anything I can help with?
THAT MOMENT WHEN U FIND EXACTLY THE TUTORIAL YOU NEEDED AFTER YOU ALREADY HECKED UP YOUR PROJECT
At least I can make a new one I guess….. *cries over wasted worbla*
Hi I finished my Wendy dress (other than a little of tidying) and thought you’d wanna see the finished project :D It’s not perfect but I’m proud of my first hand made cosplay ^_^ Thank You for all your help
Awesome!! I’m really impressed that’s your first hand made cosplay, it looks really great. Glad I could help :) ~Peachy
More Tsukishima Kei pics from Dragon Con! Plus an extra of me and Volpin Props! :o he was really nice!
Genderbent design based of of Viria’s!
The cosplay was really thrown together last minute, which is why I didn’t have an official uniform. But I thought it turned out okay. :P

One of my selfies as Tsukishima Kei from Haikyuu at Dragoncon! Genderbent design based off of viria's designs!!
I have some full body shots I’ll post later.
At the request of some friends on twitter, I spent today whipping up some Haikyuu!! inspired merch. Now you can take the court and represent your favorite team while doing it! Just as a heads up, the bag colors are 100% accurate to what I uploaded, and I’m not sure why the t-shirt images are showing up so de-saturdated, but it’s purely a web error, and what you see on the bags is what will be printed! You can find individual links to where to purchase these on redbubble below!
