Tutorials and resources

So I've started creating a list of outside resources and posting them in a new page.
As I find cosplay-relevant things, I'll add them there.

I also want to start adding my own tutorials.
I would like to cover things which I've learned in my time in a Textile Design program, such as dye methods and screen printing techniques. None of it it particularly difficult, it just takes time and practice.

Maybe I'll even come up with something that will help someone achieve the very look they're going for in a costume!

Anyone reading who would like to request a type of tutorial for me to find and/or make?

Complete Weeping Angel!

From left to Right: me (Kilayi), Ktar, and Penwiper

Dragon*Con was AWESOME!
It was out first Dragon*Con, and hopefully one of many! (It was actually the largest con we have been to, and only Ktar's second con ever!)
Hanging out with Penwiper as the Angels was too much fun! Walking in the parade as the Angels was not nearly as bad as everyone imagined it to be for us, either. I was more uncomfortable standing in one spot for a long time than walking for a while. The photoshoot with the HUGE Doctor Who group was awesome as well. I only "knew" Penwiper, and that was really not that much, so we didn't talk to that many people, but who we talked to, I'm still trying to keep in touch with! :)

Some more photos and notes on the completed costumes:

Painting the Angel

Painting the Weeping Angels took about a week. Which was about 5 days longer than we expected, haha

Angelic arms and necks

This is a short post: we had thought about this independently, but Penwiper thought of it first.

Angelic Dress

The Weeping Angels' dresses were the easiest for me to think on how to construct it, and actually create. Ktar and I made each of our dresses a bit differently... (I made mine a tad "off" but it doesn't actually bother me, I'd rather be a tiny bit different, haha)

So I've been away

Sorry I've been away for so long! I am writing up the last of the Weeping Angel posts, and will try to start writing posts on past projects soon!


Angel Wings Part 2

So, after assembling the wings, we started to paint them.
We also needed to create a harness to hold the wings on our backs, but also underneath our dresses.
After much deliberation, we figure out how we wanted to do it:
