The ol’ #cosplay grind for #AvalonExpo! Yes this is a little less clothing than I usually wear in a #costume, but I literally worked my ass off to feel comfortable wearing it. So any haters can fuck right off. 👐 #harleyquinn #rollerderbyharleyquinn #new52 #harleyquinncosplay #dccomics #dccosplay #rollerderby #derbygirl #diy #avex #scifiontherock

Yesterday I started work on a new original design for the Labyrinth Masquerade ball! This is a foam mockup, but my final version will be made from leather. I’m going to add some pauldrons and other decorative armor bits too.

I’ve wanted to go to this event for years and I’m so stoked that it’s finally happening now that I’m in LA. Expect lots more progress on this soon!

tassledown  asked:

I love that blue dress you're wearing in the latest pics from Abbey Festival. Can you tell me where its from and also what is the brown thing you're wearing around your neck and shoulders? It looks really interesting and I'd be interested in getting something like it, but I'm not at all sure of what it even is at this point.

Hi! Here a picture of the garb in question for other people reading this:

The dress I’m wearing is ArmStreet’s Archeress Dress in blue, with a XIV Style natural flax linen chemise underneath. I have a 26″ waist and I’m wearing an ArmStreet size 0 of the Archeress dress - If you’re planning on ordering this specific dress, they fit fairly wide, so if you’re looking for a tight fit size down or custom order to measurements.

The brown thing I’m wearing is actually a dark mossy green colour. It’s a 14th-century style hood with liripipe - the liripipe is a long bit that dangles at the back which looks cool and can be used as a scarf. Here’s a good page with some information about them as well as a bunch of beautiful pictures. She also sells them! 

The one in the picture was a work in progress that my boyfriend started making based on a pattern from this page. It was made with less than a metre of nice scraggly wool and some embroidery floss. They’re super easy to make and provide great warmth and look super medieval! A great addition to any costume, I think.

Since then I kind of adopted the hood and gave it a makeover for him! I’ll be wearing it at Pennsic next week before returning it to him all prettied up. Here’s how it looks now:

Hopefully this was informative/ useful! Let me know what you come up with :)

My Thor cosplay vs the original design from the Goddess of Thunder comics! I so love her look and originally wanted to make that exact armor but while building it I decided that the armor needed a lot more detailing, which was really fun to do! And since I have SO much hair and this was the first time that I was wearing it all under a wig in public I decided to change that helmet part to something more filigree. I was really scared the helmet would have to be SUPER HUGE :D (For shoots I always have a long braid in the back because it is really uncomfortable and not that easy to put all my hair under a wig xD )
I soo want to shoot this cosplay very soon! I am looking forward to some more free projects once I am less busy ❤ I cropped my evil adopted sister lady loki aka @aurelia_isabella out of the picture, btw 😄

今週末、日本三大七夕とも言われる「一宮七夕まつり」が行われます。

そんな一宮市の大成不動産が作ったキャラが「タイセーくん」。
頭が家の形をしていたり、お腹には「大」の字がくっきり出ていますね。
キツネでもタヌキでもない謎の動物のようです。

そして、七夕まつりでは「タイセーくんスペシャルステージ」として地元のアーティストのライブなどを開催、一部はニコニコ生放送もされるのだとか。
