First batch mass casting for Etsy!
No WIP pictures, but Liz and I cranked out a Kiga group Kanba jacket in about two weekends and I think it turned out pretty okay XD
Sakuracon was a lot of fun! Here are some pictures from a quick iPhone camera photoshoot we did when things were moving a little slow at the con~
I have a secret interest that I don’t get to do often, and that is making subtly nerdy clothes that kind of fly under the radar, unless you get the reference.
Since I spent so much time getting the designs down for Ezio, I made an embroidered skirt with the same designs~
The fabric is also leftover from cosplay (Deep Sea Girl!Miku I did super long ago)
Have I ever expressed my love for found-object cosplay? Because I really love creative problem solving like this, it makes my life so much easier.
Anyway, Ruby’s pouch!
I really wanted to avoid the shower cap look at all costs, so I ended up doing a two-piece instead of gathering a one-piece.
I was going to do a rim, but then I didn’t want the rim to show when the beret was being worn, so I didn’t attach a rim at all. (Hey, it won’t show if it’s not even there, right?)
Fortunately for me, this fabric doesn’t fray. But if you have a fraying fabric, I encourage you to at least bias tape the rim XD
PSA: RED is going to Sakuracon!
And I have pretty minimal experience with north american cons!
I would love to meet up with people and make some new cosplay friends, but before that, I have pretty minimal knowledge of cosplay etiquette in the United States. Can someone give me a quick run-down?
Is it okay to take public transit to the con in cosplay, or are there spaces at the con center provided for changing and makeup? Are the cosplayers confined to a certain area, or are we allowed to roam around everywhere? (I have also heard these mystic rumors of big meetups for cosplayers from the same fandom. How do I get a foot in that? XD)
I am planning to cosplay with one of my friends here (who also has minimal experience with cons), and the current plans are:
Ezio and Leo from ACII
Shouma and Kanba from Mawaru Penguindrum
Sleepy Quail (Nanaki) and Murderous Partridge (Shuu) from Hatoful Boyfriend
Please message me if you’re interested in meeting up!
