<3 L2S Cosplay
Sometimes, people laugh when I tell them my boyfriend sews better than me; I kid you not though. Not the best pictures, but here’s the B★RS jacket he made from black and white pleather as a commission for our friend, LugiaMania. Jacket is fully lined and working zipper. The zipper is upside down because she tends to only have it closed at the neck.
His patience and precision can kick my work out of the window. Curse (and I say this with utmost respect) engineers and their precision.
Sorry for the lack of posts! It’s the last few days before ACEN, Lindsay has ridiculous hours at work, and Tumblr is just NOT an option right now. ;)
If you guys want to help, feel free to submit any cosplay related things (yours or others! You can send me links to posts to reblog/queue, too! ) and we’ll definitely post them!!
Wish us luck on getting everything done!!!
We really don’t recommend this, as it probably won’t work quite right. :)
As an alternative, maybe seam rip a separating zipper out of an old jacket/hoodie you don’t wear anymore?
We DID find this: http://sailrite.wordpres s.com/2010/07/26/making-a-long-separating-zipper/ which looks like it would help you a little. You will need extra hardware to close each half of the zipper.
I hope this helps at least a little bit! This is a tricky one!
How I hang my wigs!
When you start building a giant collection of hair, you’re gonna want an easy way to store it, so I came up with this.
(If your wigs get dusty, use an air-can and spray the dust off. Or, alternatively, you can use the bag the wig came with to slide over the top of the wig.)
Meg and I have basically spent the last three weeks working our asses off on Mami and Homura, and we’re FINALLY at the finish line. Just a few more things (trim on the black shirt sleeves and ribbons) and we’ve FINALLY finished this long project. I’m super super happy with what we’ve got, though, so I’m very pleased.
Pardon my dumb make up-less face, our messy workroom, and these goofy progress shots.
Ughhh it feels like I’ve been sewing ruffles forever, and I even fucked up measuring so I don’t have enough for the top and have to go buy more wHY THIS
at least this is done and I have the rest of the fabric I need uwu
Hi ignore my face n_n
SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR. I still have to style the wig, attach the oversized zipper, add more feathers to the wings, and fix the hat.
