Jacket is nearing completion! Sort of. I need to make the sleeve patches and the back patch still, fix the epaulettes/lapels and add the cuffs on the sleeves.
….and I got my glorious 36 metres of elastic nylon webbing for the straps. HUFF HUFF.
I CAN’T TELL IF THOSE ARE COSPLAYERS OR IF IT’S A REALLY AMAZING PIECE OF ART BUT EITHER WAY HOLY DAMN ⊙ω⊙
CA: killed a fuckin fuck ton of marine life accidental
CA: doin thats all i evver done practically the ocean wwas my killin cauldronTT: Accidentally?

I mean I still have to make the costume and get actual quality fake blood but the idea is there
and by idea, I mean that I will be covered in blood, still taking one-armed selfies
guess who devised a method to have her bloody titan stump emit steam all day

I am taking this cosplay very, very slowly since I don’t plan on wearing it until Otafest 2014 but GAS CYLINDER happened
materials cost about $4.50 for each one plus $7 for the fuckawesome spraypaint (giant hollow plastic crayons, pop bottles, electrical tape, tee valves)
this is how I did the skirt… if I could do it over, I would probably follow the pattern much more exactly, but I was trying to get it more accurate which I don’t think is even possible haha. I would start by looking up “mermaid skirt” or “fit and flare”
I used this pattern for the skirt but I ended up modifying it hugely and for the top, any basic bodice pattern will work! I suggest spending some time making mock-ups of bodices until you make one that fits you well that you can use as a base time and time again.
To be completely honest, I’m still a bit of a novice when it comes to sewing so I’m not sure how much help I can be since I mostly make things through trial and error ;A;
Can we talk about these amazing copslayers at AFO??
If you know them, send me their tumblrs or any other websites so i can credit them!!
future cosplay for 2014 con season
I get to learn
I’ve never done a bloody costume before, so I’m quite excited!
Thank youuuu! Although I’ll be the first to admit that it is far from perfect~
