9:26 am - Muertos shadowbox
Look, I do still use this journal and do crafty whatnot.

Just thought I'd share what I made with some leftover glow in the dark skeletons.
I would hate to throw them out, even if they were around a dollar.
Glad I didn't! This made for an awesome gift for a friend.

2:08 pm - Ash Williams Costume
I was pretty excited that She Ash turned out as well as it did.
Granted, I missed wearing it to Theatre Bizzare because I was sick and it was still not finished.
So, it could use to come out next sci-fi convention. (Considering I haven't been to any conventions since A Cen 2006.)

I am very grateful that Kayce taught me last year how to destroy a shirt with the proper spraypaint and fake blood.

Working on my Ash Halloween costume!

10:12 am - Cleric attire
My latest object of obsession:
Equilibrium Cleric CoatCollapse )

Abbyshot.com price= $1130
I bet I can make this myself in due time. Simply not with leather, like pictured.
A cleric outfit is also a plan in the works.

9:53 am - Liz Sherman Cosplay Shoot
Here is the finished product for my Liz Sherman costume. After looking at multiple blazers/shirts I found a shiny one, as pictured. My only regret is that I sewed the collar fabric on, but left the black lining inside. Any side shot of me, you see that the inside of the shirt is not white. Bad on my part.
I think I might try and enlist some help for a few Photoshop effects, like a flame in my hand or above my head. :winks at charisangel:
I need to get a haircut, too. So I'll probably have red hair in the near future. The layers/bangs were a little irritating in the photos. Liz's hair is all one length, my hair obviously isn't.
I should just post the pictures now.
The comic character I look like the most, to dateCollapse )

I can spend hours looking at peoples' cosplays online.
Here are some non-anime ones to begin with:
Venture Brothers
Teen Titans
Kim Possible
Harley and Poison Ivy

Anime related:

Wah? but, wow
Best hair job

What a nifty hobby.

8:54 pm - Finishing touches
I'm getting much closer to finishing my three cosplays.
Today was/is my adventure with my Yomiko trench coat. I've managed to break about 5 sewing machine needles on some of the thick material and it's horribly frustrating. So, I've been taking regular breaks for sanity's sake.
After the Yomiko work all I have to do is touch up the Chloe cloak.
Then, off to the Nakahito robe for Matt!

5:06 pm - Shiva is beautiful
I watched Matt beat FFX today.
The aeon Shiva just looked so neat. Perhaps, it's that she looks a bit like Penance with blue dreads instead of red.
Here's some artwork
a good cosplay link.
Put's my novice cosplay to shame...

11:36 am - Trigun cosplays
I have such a time checking out people cosplaying Trigun characters.
If I had my way, I'd buy a Vash coat, but after seeing someone's black version I think I'm going to implode from awe.
:Faints:Collapse )

That's high on my "to-make" list.
And, with my Liz shirt I can practically cosplay Wolfwood as well.

5:46 pm - Liz look alike
See the resemblance?Collapse )

I can't wait to cosplay Liz in her comic attire.
It might involve a cigarette for the sake of authenticity, though.

4:42 pm - Amanda's Ugly Doll
My friend and co-worker, Amanda, has been so giving.
Just the other day, she gave me clothingCollapse )

Now, I want to make her a one of a kind, Kate designed Ugly Doll. It'd be a barista or coffee addict, since we both work at Starbucks.
Chalk up another project!

1:58 am - Boondock Saints applause
Got plenty of kudos for the Boondock Saints stencil. It's been a while since I watched that movie.

Clothing related, right?
Novel and amusing.
Don't see any of my friends ever wearing one.

8:37 am - Penance
I'm liking comic femmes in my journal background.
(childclover has Liz from Hellboy.)
This is Penance from Genaration X.
She's got a great outfit. It's worth attempting to try. But, I have inexperiace fastening belts anywhere aside from my waist.

5:45 pm - Another niche
I'm beginning to feel like my journal is just about to become bombarded with oodles of pictures. So, I thought I'd set aside another spot for all my projects. (It'll spare folks endless pictures of me)
After visiting a recent goth/industrial club, I've got a sudden urge to concoct/reconstruct the same bizarre attire I sported in high school. Nothing like wearing exactly what I want, because I put the will into making it.
Not much more to it.
Self exploration through a sewing machine.
