Good morning my lovelies! I’m in a very good mood today because I just had 11 hours of sleep and feel incredibly refreshed and energetic. I’m also loving this weekly update thing where I can just ramble randomly about recent crafting exploits or personal stories! First things first: I’m now on Facebook! You can add… Read More Weekend Update: Biased
Every once in a while people ask me if I do commissions (or straight up ask me to knit or sew them something), and I always shoot them down. Knitting and sewing is my hobby and shouldn’t turn into another daily chore. It is, however, possible to drop very specific hints if, say, your birthday… Read More A Slytherin Scarf for my favourite Draco Malfoy!
It’s been a while, huh? I’m sorry that I’m showing you these pictures only now, and that there are so few. I do think these three are super fun, though! For those who’ve only been reading this blog for the last couple of months: My friend Neko of NF Fantasy and I did a partner… Read More Pocahontas Cosplay: The Colours of the Wind, Revisited
Anushka of Tailoring Tales has made me wish I had posted about my fitting problems regarding the Pocahontas dress sooner. My original plan was to update as soon as I had done something new, but real life tends to get in the way of such plans … Anyways, she suggested to bone the bodice, which I… Read More Pocahontas Cosplay – Sewing Part II
I’m reaaaally tired after this two-day convention, so today’s Me-Made-May round-up is gonna be short and sweet! 🙂 Day 4 Jumper: Such Flattering Puff Sleeves I love to combine this seater with my red trousers and skirts; it’d feel to boring together with black. Day 5 Shirt: Wearable Muslin Shirt I honestly didn’t want to… Read More Me-Made-May ’15 – Week Two
As we have seen last time, I had bought gorgeous, buttery soft fabric, so now I was ready to cut into it. When I first mentioned the cosplay idea on here, Meike of Schnitterling suggested to use the Cambie pattern as a template for the Pocahontas dress. This really was a great idea! I had bought… Read More Pocahontas Cosplay – Sewing Part I
I gotta be honest here, I do not like spending time at the local fabric store. Let me explain: It’s not because I don’t enjoy browsing for fabric. I could’ve spent hours in Eurokangas for example. I just don’t like spending time at this particular fabric store, because it’s warm and stuffy there, and I… Read More Pocahontas Cosplay: The Search for Fabric
My friend Neko is coming to visit me in May so that we can go to a local anime convention together. We’ve been going swimming once a week over the semester break and got to talking that we should do some kind of partner cosplay. It was kind of obvious that it’d have to be a… Read More At least we can paint with the colours of the wind
Remember when I was trying to decide on a character to cosplay for my friend’s cosplay party? Death of the Endless is my favourite character in Sandman after Delirium (but that would have been too involved), and once I had started thinking about a Death costume, I couldn’t NOT go through with it. I had… Read More Death of the Endless Cosplay
Source: PENICKart @ Deviantart. I don’t do cosplay. I don’t have anything against it, but as a socially awkward person the thought of getting stared at and posing for photos in front of people I don’t know kind of makes me want to curl up in a ball and die. BUT. One of my oldest… Read More Cosplay …?
