Here’s the first two photos from catprincecosplay and I’s photoshoot at Mechacon! We had such a fun time cosplaying Humanstuck!Mindfang and Dolorosa and I can’t wait to do it again!!! More pictures will be coming up soon and I’m super excited to see them because we took really cute ones!! Photocredit to Ninjo Photos on facebook
all the stripes on the veil are fabric marker and that alone took like 2 days by hand, all the stripes on the outer skirt are sewn together strips.
baby signless just needs his legs and horns stuck on & i need to finish the middle panel of the skirt, armsocks and other little things (like fix that peeling piece of interfacing u can see)
Who+ Is the Steamiest O+f Them All? (Disclaimer: I’m not the slightest bit funny. I’m sorry. My camera was also stolen so blurry phone photos are all I am currently capable of. Again, I’m sorry.)
Hooray preview shots for Steamstuck!Dolorosa~ Man, I don’t even know where to begin with this one! This was the first truly complicated original design of mine, and while I had a great time making it, I’m also just glad that it’s finally done. There were some fun details I added in, like making the netting black as a kind of mourning veil, and a birdcage on the corset chain; although there were other little details I sewed in like lace borders and whatnot that didn’t show up well in these shots. Hopefully that will be different in person!
Total Completion Time: 66 hours

It’s honestly a lot more comfortable than you’d think. The suiting is so soft and lovely, I just want to roll around in it~
The bustle was a lot easier to make than I had expected, mostly because I opted to go with a bustle pillow rather than a full-on wire frame (pretty much in the interest of getting it to fit on the plane ;A; )
This design came out looking even better than it was in my head, which is saying something, I think!
I was an airhead and added stripes to the corset panels before rather than after sewing them together, so now the stripes are no longer evenly spaced and it will just never stop bugging me.
I’m kind of worried about how I’m going to sit in this without pressing creases and generally screwing up the bustle, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
IT TOOK WAY TOO LONG TO MAKE I MEAN SERIOUSLY EVEN MY REGULAR DOLOROSA DRESS TOOK 14 HOURS LESS TO SEW WHAT GIVES
Well I hope you enjoyed this preview of my Steamstuck!Dolorosa cosplay, and that I get to see you at Otakon when I debut this! Time to celebrate by getting to spend one whole day away from my sewing machine before going right back to work on yet another Otakon cosplay -sobbing foreeeeeeeever-
