Nami and I are fighting right now. We’re battling to see who will get to show there titles off for our school’s Animation Festival. WE'RE NEMESIS-ES! So, no better way to duke it out then in SKULL GIRLS style. Nami takes her magical girl form of Sardine Queen, and I transform into my posh self, NEMissIS.

For the origami cyclone where did you get the gold trim?

All the gold trim was specially made out of a gold stretch vinyl I bought on when it was being discontinued! So, I can’t point you directly to what I used, but any stretch vinyl would probably be similar. It’s very light-weight and stretches in one direction so it’s good for making custom trim out of!

Thank you! I tried putting the tricky part through my machine, but it was giving me a hard time, so I opted to handsew instead, which was quite painful, hahah.

I used Heat-N-Bond and interfacing to help shiffen the vinyl of the skirt. The Heat-N-Bond in and of itself adds some stiffness, and the thick interfacing helps as well. I had actually planned at first on using craft foam in those parts, but this seemed to work just as well! It’s quite stiff but still folds and moves with the body. The vinyl by itself behaves like a few layers of denim, about, so it definitely needed something to made it more “armor-like” :D

Hey Guys!

This weekend I made a resource tumblr to keep things a bit more organized for myself. I know a lot of you guys are also fellow artist, so there might be some good resources for you as well. I’ve tried to be good about my tagging system, but if not, there is a search bar at the top. 

Hopefully this will help you out in some way!

Rampant Resources

(P.S. I completely promote looking in the “Advice” tag, as it has a great collection of artist handing out advice and taking stances on art pricing.)
