Old one died.
Lets see what you're working on right now!
Cosplays & Coords welcome
I started Tyrande's bow today. Almost done laying down the 'feathers' then need to make the hawk heads and armored plating on the front!
Already posted this in another thread but only a little more til he's done
I never want to work with feathers again. Still need to make the crown, style the wig, fiddle with the undershirt a bit, and detail the swan wings.
Two friends and I are going to be Papyrus, Sans, and Undyne for an upcoming convention and I'm really happy with how the three are coming out. Pic related is our Papyrus head and our Sans head is curing right now. I'm just waiting on a wig and bodypaint but I figured I'd share.
(sorry for the bad quality pic, camera phone sucks...)
Its my first time working with pepakura, but I'm having a lot of fun assembling it.
Gonna start putting on the fibreglass resin by tomorrow-ish.
I'm not making a full mask like I originally intended.
I suffer from vertigo and I wear glasses constantly, so covering my face fully would be a bad idea.
I'm trying out an idea I got from a friend, its kinda complicated...
Im finally done with my bow, im so happy....my first derpy prop.
first time sewing a bag/this kinda fabric but i think i did okay? still have the shoulder strap and patches left though. its all self drafted.
Hey. Hope I see you there anon. I'm making a new skirt. I kept flip flopping on how to use my graveyard fabric. If I get it done I'll have a purplish/maroon skirt with these ruffles on it.
Currently making a personified StarFox costume for Halloween. Just finished painting and adding a light to this Nerf gun for it. Now I'm waiting for shin pads and a clunky califon headset to come in the mail to mod and paint too.
This is my first time weathering something and I'm pretty content w it
Started making some biscuits as props for my Cooking Mama cosplay. I love making felt food, it's so relaxing...
Holy cow those are adorable.
Nice. I'm making a really shitty Temmie for late-night shenanigans at AUSA this weekend.
Sorry for terrible late night photo (used flash so the brocade pattern would show) but really close to finishing up my Pumpkaboo gijinka, also for this weekend. Gotta add trim, attach the lining, and make myself some gloves.
Well, I can try and see if I manage to attach them to hair clips in a sturdy way. And I've been told that I should try selling them online, so maybe that would be the occasion to create a shop.
Staying on the topic on WiPs, here's a donut charm I made when I started trying my hand at felt crafts.
I finally found fabric to finish Rosette's dress! 2 days before the con no less. All I need to do now is make the collar and headdress. (then finish Chrono...)
Those puffy sleeves nearly killed me
Throwing together a quick Black Mage for Halloween. Just need to cover this in felt and made a black head sock with LED eyes.
It's not 100% accurate but it's also my first time trying to make anything
Still a lot I need to do
same anon, currently working on Havel the rock.
for sure, so what I did was i just drew with hot glue, ill post a pic...
Finally got the shoulder armor working the way I wanted for Wing Zero. Its basically a strap that locks into the top of the shoulder armor and runs though the two hinged sections and locks into the inside of the 3rd flange. A metal pin through the strap keeps the middle flange in place.
This setup lets everything move naturally and dissemble for storage and transport.
Id like to get working on fiberglassing the inside of the torso this weekend so I can move on to the backpack and wings.
Slowly but surely this cosplay is coming together. Dat Laura Matsuda game tho
Thanks! I had a lot of fun going to nyc's garment district and picking out fabrics.
Here's the complete costume, sorry for potato quality, wig still unstyled.
Just tried out painting
Kinda proud of it
Finished this last night. Final piece to my warring kingdoms xin zhao cosplay from League.
Time to build the inner frame around it now.
I tried anon i really did but I ended up messing it due to the complexity of the design, so I had to try and freehand it.
but I'm gonna try making a new pair since those ended up not fitting well.
A really easy way to make a stecil for painting is to draw what you want onto freezer paper. You can buy this at any grocery store. Draw your design and cut it out. There's a waxy side to the paper you put down and iron onto your fabric. You can iron it and it'll adhere to your fabric. you can paint in the open areas you cut, and then peal the paper off and it'll make your application much nicer.
Here's a quick tutorial for you:
well that's one way to do it I never knew about.
But like I said earlier, the design is quite complex.
Update for you Anon, I just got the wip head from our Sans. Still needs to be smoothed out with water putty and all that but hey we're coming along.
Oh man it's great stuff. You can get it for like 3 dollars at Home Depot and it's basically like plaster but more durable and it dries harder. You can sand it down and it sands just like wood because its cellulose. Its great for covering gaps and smoothing things out. It starts off like powder and all you need to do is add water to it to activate it. It's super helpful.
Here's 2 days progress knitting a sweater for Frisk. I'm such a bitter knitter, I always tell myself knitting is hell and I'm not doing it ever again but then I make the 4th doctor's scarf or another fucking sweater.
No it doesn't that's the best part. It's a really solid hold and can take damage really well. Don't like, bang on it with a hammer or anything but when it comes to con wear and tear this stuff is leagues better than spackle.
Ahhh that's awesome, thank you so much for the tip! I was getting tired of having to do armor maintenance and touch ups after every con, I will definitely be getting some of this stuff.
And one more quickie question, do you need to wear gloves to work with it?
You can wear gloves if you want but it washes off very quickly. I used it without gloves but as long as you don't let it cake on your skin it washes off just fine.
Bondo is stronger than this stuff. This is mainly for patches and hole filling and external smoothing, wherein Bondo is for structure. This acts more as a durable spackle.
Another anon here also knitting a sweater for Frisk from Undertale!
Different process than >>8696570 though
I'm just about done with my third attempt to make the MGSV balaclava.
This is my first time doing a serious sewing project like this, so I'm learning as I go, but I'm pretty happy with the progress.
The only problem that I haven't been able to figure out yet is the part above the eyes stretching too much. It should go pretty much straight across, but ends up stretching into a curve.
Once I get access to a sewing machine, I'll probably make another attempt, which will hopefully be the final one.
Not sure if I want to put some kind of see through black fabric in it or leave it be
maybe someone with a knitting machine would do it but knitting something by hand takes so long I doubt anyone would do it unless you paid them a lot more than you'd like. I'm a knitter and a full sweater takes a month of knitting for an hour or two every day.
That looks pretty good, and well molded.
I'm still deciding on which to go for for between Sans and Papyrus mainly because I'm too short for Papyrus(I'm 5'5) while I'm too thin for Sans(Not big boned, unfortunately) but I was wondering if you have a guide on how to make something like that, along with smoothing it with water putty?
If you're willing to pay a large amount for the labor that goes into it, sure. Sweaters can take a long time (a month or longer like >>8700015 said, sometimes faster if a fast knitter goes for more than 2 hours each day) but the amount of hours makes it hard to sell any hand knit sweater for even $90
Only way to commission a sweater for a not-bank-breaking price would be if the knitter had a knitting machine.
If you're looking for a scarf, that can be much quicker or longer depending on the length, if its striped, the amount of colors in the design, etc., but still expect someone to ask for maybe $30 minimum for even a regularly-sized simple scarf.
I put on a layer of black and showing the size compared to my tiny body.
Ah yes nothing like hand sewing your costume because your machine decided that it didn't want to work anymore.
Made a giant Berserker Axe-Sword for my Shirou Emiya costume. Tried to make this as lightweight as possible since its over 6ft long so its just cardboard, woodglue, scrap pvc pipe and papermache covered in leftover paints. Basically cost me nothing since It uses stuff I just had lying around. Still need to weather it some more and clear coat it.
