In true RSGP (redsunrisegermanpie) fashion, it’s time for another super last minute con cosplay. let’s see if I can churn out a kid Loki in three days!
Tip of the day: remember to stay stitch collars and arms! They’re curved and are the most likely to stretch/warp while you work. Just run a large stitch at your sewing line (or 1/4” from it if you’re like me and are afraid it’ll be visible) and it should keep your fabric the way you want it.
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!
