remnant leather

3

Spent my afternoon putting the finishing touches on this glittering moon purse ✨🌛 

I’ve been sitting on this design for a while (something like two years?!) waiting for the perfect fabric to make it in to come along. During a trip to the craft store last month I finally found it! The fabric itself (holographic glitter canvas) is kinda stiff + rough textured, so I wasn’t quite sure if it would get along with my sewing machine, but luckily I was able to stitch it up without any issues. 

I salvaged remnants of black leather from another project to make the detailing on the face & used the leftover glitter fabric I had to make a matching tassel pull for the zipper. 

I plan on gifting this one to a friend…fingers crossed that she likes it! 😊

I have art block and I’m feeling super lazy today, but I finally made an actual updated reference for my Boris- (albeit it’s kinda rushed)

Boris The Wolf:
Age: 20-30 (It may change depending on the situation)
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Lemme Smash ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Relationship Status: Single (I’m open to relationship suggestions for him, and he may be multi-ship in the future-)
Appearance: A black toon wolf wearing overalls with one strap down, a brown leather collar, (remnants of the straps that held him down on the operating table,) and a wound on his torso with eight stitches (yes, I have a specific design for the stitches •w•)
Height: About 6'3
Relationships:
Bendy @backdroptheblackdot - Adoptive Brother
Darling @bunwithevilfilling - Niece
Other Information:
This blog’s version of Boris is outgoing, playful, and oblivious, among other things. He enjoys roughhousing and messing around with others, however, he’s quite dense, and often times doesn’t pick up on subtle subjects or hints. He’s also quite forgetful, as he forgot numerous events from before his dissection, and tends to forget even recent things. Despite the fact that he’s a wolf, he acts like a domestic dog, playing fetch and enjoying pets and belly rubs. He’ll also eat anything, and I mean anything. He’s eaten doors, power tools, trees, fences… You name it, he’s probably eaten it.
He has a strong sense of loyalty towards his family, however, he’s a bit of a coward when it comes to certain things, and sometimes he’ll run instead of standing up for himself. An example being his eremophobia. Boris has a strong fear of being left alone, and will cling to others for company. If he’s left in a building by himself, he’ll quickly become nervous and upset.
Boris doesn’t actually know who dissected him, or who lead him to his death (temporary death?) but believes it was Joey, because he was the last face he remembered before blacking out.
Everything else can be asked or answered in time!


Now, some general information about the blog itself-

I’m fine with angst, fluff, suggestive questions, etc.
However, I’m not going to be drawing any NSFW. I’m not experienced enough with anatomy to do that, and it’s not that it makes me uncomfortable, but it’s just not something I can do at the moment.

Feel free to roleplay with Boris! It doesn’t matter if you’re a Bendy, Alice, another Boris or an OC, drop me a message, reply to one of my posts, or start an rp through an ask- I’m cool with it!

If your muse wants to be rude to Boris, or be a bit angsty, GO FOR IT.
I LOVE ANGST. IT’S MY FAVORITE KIND OF MOOD. A NGST.

Another note is that I’m currently in high school, and it’s possible that I’ll be getting a part time job in the future, which may make it hard to keep up or draw often. However, there aren’t many asks that I have to answer anyway, so this shouldn’t be an issue!


So, that’s about it-
You’re more than welcome to interact with my version of Boris however you like, regardless if we know each other or not- (I know that may deter people sometimes-)
I’m always open for a conversation! Don’t feel like you’re excluded because I don’t follow you- (I probably just don’t know about your blog, I totally would follow you ;w;)

The Marquis of Athlum

This is my first attempt at art nouveau, featuring my favourite young lord, David Nassau. I’m including a close up of the centre filigree on the Gae Bolg because I drew it… and then covered it

Stunning Viking sword unearthed: 
Warrior who brandished the ornate weapon may have been chosen by King Canute for English battle.

For Viking warriors, swords were not only deadly weapons, but a symbol of power.

A unique example with gold details and a mysterious inscription has been unearthed in southern Norway.

Experts believe the elaborate weapon could belong to one of King Canute’s hand-picked men who fought in battles with King Ethelred of England.

The sword, found in the village of Langeid in 2011 but has not go on display until now, dates from the late Viking age and is embellished with gold, inscriptions and other designs.

It measures 37 inches (94cm) long with a well-preserved handle and is thought to have belonged to a wealthy man because of the use of precious materials.

The weapon was pulled from a grave in a Viking burial ground by archaeologists from the Museum of Cultural History at the University of Oslo.

 2015 cosplay round-up time!

While there’s a chance I might make something before the end of the month, I’m going to call it. 2015 was straight up a terrible year for me, it’s been a gigantic struggle and my health has been terrible. Cosplay, however, was on point. In order of appearance at cons:

Ronan the Accuser: done in record time for the C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay, wherein I proceeded not to place and mostly just fainted a lot wearing a mostly rubber suit. Took it out again and swept First Place and Best In Show in masters category elsewhere.

Lady Loki (again): I wanted to wear Lady Loki, made a new dress in like two hours out of trash. Loki is trash, and so am I.

Scarlet Witch (Age of Ultron concept art Avenger uniform): Made out of two 5$ upholstery leather remnants from Hancock Fabrics, took two days. Wore for a photoshoot and never again.

Olwê of Alqualondë: King of the sea elves for a shoot at Katsucon, had been in process for a while but I panic-finished it to shoot and ended up loving it; I’ll probably do more with it in the future with a better wig.

Black Widow (CA:TWS suit): I’ve wanted to be Black Widow for years, I’m not sure why it took me this long. Of all the costumes on the list it’s probably the one I’ve now worn the most, since I use it for a superhero charity group, but I have no pictures :(

Winter Soldier: That’s not me but I’m including it here instead of my commissions list because it’s my husband and I have converted him to the dark side of both cosplay and Bucky/Natasha shippers. Yes, good, let the fandom flow through you~  (also the costume sucked to make, tyvm)

Maedhros (part 2: Silmaril Boogaloo): Revamped and replaced everything except the armor, to wear Maedhros for the NYCC Eastern Championships of Cosplay where I took first place in my division! (and was called Tauriel, a lot). Definitely  a huge passion project, going on about 600 hours of work over the last couple of years now and I think I can finally declare it done. It’s been cleaned and is sealed in storage and though I love it, I don’t want to see it for a while.

Not shown/done on commission; Thranduil(x2), Loki, Margaery Tyrell(x2), and a few dozen prop orders before I dropped off the face of the earth on indefinite medical leave in July.

This year I spent the majority of conventions lying on the ground and leaving early, which does tend to suck the fun out a bit. I kind of hit the end of the line, as far as health and chronic illness goes, which is putting a damper on things. This coming year, my only halfway solid con plans are KatsuCon (because it’s a gift), and NYCC (because I already have passes). Fingers crossed I recover, can get back to teaching, and be able to hit the con circuit hard by the time summer comes around.

And thank you to some of my favorite fun and supportive cosplay friends in no particular order and probably missing a lot; @daretomarvel @ambrorussa @theshatteredsilhouette @alexandriathegeek @tk9336 @leonardnimoy @aviva0017  @marilladesigns
