Patterning Bracers

I'm working on getting a set of leather bracers and jerkin done in time for an upcoming Renfaire. In this post I discuss the patterning of the bracers.

Glue Basting

When working on Mei, I was encountering issues with the outer layers of the suit wrinkling as I basted them to the denim support layer. In this post, I explain how I used glue basting to prevent the wrinkles.

Bunny Mei Completed

Raj and I attended Ramencon 2017 in South Bend, Indiana. Prior to the event we had planned to join an Overwatch Butler/Maid group with Kojika Cosplay. This post details my retrospective thoughts on the Bunny Mei that I completed for Rajamitsu.

Back to Work!

Well I know it's been some time since I've updated the site. Mostly because I've had a busy work schedule and it's been easier to throw up some quick photos and a description on my Facebook page than to write a complete blog post. However, things finally seem to be calming down a bit and I'm hopting to get some of my photos and notes organized over the next couple weeks and try and get a couple in-progress posts made.

Making Jaune's Shield-Resin Coating

In Part One I covered the process of creating the base form for the shield from craft foam. In this part, I focus on resin coating the shield to provide a tough surface.

Upcoming Events!

Just a quick head's up to let people know where they can find me!

New Upcoming Projects

In a push to get things done before upcoming cons, I've started several new costume projects. First up is Kaworu from Evangelion which I hope to have finished by August. Second, Elizabeth and Booker from Bioshock Infinite which I also hope to have done for August. Following that, I'm hoping to create Iwatobi Swim Club jackets for Ramencon in September. October brings Tataru Taru from Final Fantasy XIV as well as another character that his yet to be identified. It's going to be a busy few months!

Making Jaune's Shield-The Basic Form

This post covers my process for creating Jaune's shield. In this article I cover the cutting process and preparations for resin coating.
