I’ve had a lot of questions about my Squirrel Girl cosplay. Firstly, I’m super glad people like it! It’s funny, cause I wasn’t sure what the reception would be. I was prepared for this costume to be one-and-done, and now I’m actually planning for a legit photoshoot. I hope it encourages you to go out and pick up the book, cause it’s well worth supporting.

Secondly, if you’d like to learn more about this costume, I did an interview with the lovely FergyK as Lois Lane for Nerd Caliber at Massive Comic Con this past weekend. I didn’t say in the video, but the leggings are made from stretch velvet, the white bits on the jacket are faux suede, and the teeth are wonderflex. Also, the acorn earrings I sculpted from fimo clay.

I plan on posting pictures of the patterns I made soon! :)

梅雨の季節が相変わらず続いていますね。

さて、ご当地キャラも雨対策というのがありまして、埼玉県深谷市の「ふっかちゃん」もこうして全身ビニール袋かぶってイベントに出たりもします。
息苦しそうなのは間違いありません。

そんな「ふっかちゃん」は今年のゆるキャラグランプリで最後の出場にすると公表しています。
昨年が2位で終わっただけに、背水の陣といったところでしょうか。

“Fukka-chan” Fukaya city, Saitama prefecture, Japan.

Phantom Victorian Evening Wear Ensemble - [full-size image] - My first attempt at true menswear! This ensemble is based on a Victorian tailsuit in ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. The tailcoat features a woven poly suiting with Bemberg lining and glass button details. The waistcoat is constructed from a lustrous ribbed fabric and silk dupioni. Satin ribbon detailing adorn the lapels and ornate buttons are used in the front closure. The trousers have a high waistline and velvet tuxedo stripes. Lastly, the [faux] bow tie was made from striped cotton shirting, cut on the bias and crisply pleated. [SPOTLIGHT: read about the process and see progress photos here!]
