“Cosplay Tutorial - How to make a cheap and cool scalemail” by Anhyra Cosplay

It’s another fake leather scale mail tutorial, but this one walks you through an exceptionally good paint job.  I really though the scales actually had a ridge down the middle at first, very good.

Check out the super-optimistic 😢 lyrics to one of the album’s tracks about the far off year of ‘2004’

“In the year 2004
Life will be like one big party
The sensation of cultural unity
Hatin’ is over and there’s positivity
This is a new world, some things haven’t changed
Yo, a party is a party no matter what day
There are angels laced in platinum robes
And a Benz is still a Benz, wheels dipped in chrome
The ladies are still fly with futuristic styles
You know flossin ain’t over, it’s just computerized
So now tell me is the future what you thought it would be?
For every cloudy vision is now reality
Now these words you hear is not meant to scare
But in fact they’re here to make you aware
So just like before, you know, in the past
The future’s what we make it
So let’s make it last”


Woo! I got commissioned for a custom item that is actually sewing related! :D
That’s kinda rare lately.

The customer wanted a quiver for their larp character that did not use any real leather. I decided to use faux suede for the main body. It looks and feels really nice, but was a bit too floppy to be used for a quiver, so I reinforced it with thick interlacing and stiff cotton.
The darker decorations are made from faux leather.

This was a lot of fun and a nice change of pace from sewing the same items over and over again.

If anyone else wants a custom sewn commission, don’t hesitate to ask! That’d make me happy :3
