sewn bows

I tried to save an ask in a draft and instead tumblr ate it so: in response to “how to ride a whale/dolphin,” you basically need a tiny submarine. The rider sits in a streamlined, pressurized capsule near the blowhole, and has a hatch/fan to let in fresh air whenever the mount surfaces to breathe. There are oxygen canisters for backup/safety reasons, and the “reins” are some sort of corded mechanism that lets you tug gently on the pectoral fins.

This (like all of my unusual mount art lmao) is a fairly hasty design and could use improvements, especially with how cramped the capsule is, but I think I’ve gotten the essentials down. You could also ride without a capsule in a scuba suit, but it would greatly increase drag while swimming.

“What do you need me to do?” You asked your uncle.

“Thanks for helping, (Y/N), can you put these on that table over there?” He requested, piling several boxes into your arms so you could barely peek over them to see where you were going. After you set them down on the table, you opened the top of one of them to see several holiday decorated cookies stacked on display inside.

“Hey uncle George? You want me to set these out?” You called across the room.

“That would be great!” He responded. You set out each cardboard box one by one on the table, tearing off the lids to put the various sweets inside on display. Afterward, you went back to your uncle, who was now hanging up a cluster of fake mistletoe in the doorway.

Mikasa Ackerman - Sailor Mars/Mikasa

Cosplayer: Jenna K.

Designed by: Kim B. & Kayla M.

Our Mikasa is played by the incredible Jenna.  For our Beyond the Northern Wall set we wanted to take Mikasa out of her comfort zone a little but keep her the fierce femme fatale that she is.  you’ll notice that some of the 3D maneuvering gear straps are painted on.  This is to make it easier for our dancers to move around unhindered.  As many AoT cosplayers know, those straps can make it really difficult to do certain things and we wanted to avoid any mishaps on stage.  

Our take on Sailor Mars is vintage and ready to wear.  We kept Mikasa’s iconic scarf color as her sailor scout color.  Some home sewn bows, simple knee highs, and painted character shoes tied this sailor scout look together.

If you’ve seen our Beyond the Northern Wall performance from Anime Expo 2015 (click here if you haven’t) you’ll notice that at one point Mikasa realizes she is wearing gloves and is just disgusted.  We gave Jenna the freedom to perform Mikasa’s abduction into the Sailor Scouts as she thought Mikasa would and she nailed it.


Anna’s Winter Cloak

  • In daylight, her cloak looks to be a strong mix of green and blue, leaning more toward “aqua blue” or a very green turquoise.
  • The ribbon is faux, and probably has a clasp or closure right behind the knot of the bow in the very center. It seems to close left-to-right, with the bow only sewn onto the left opening of the cape. There is no button or pressure motion when she slides it on, and if you really want that effect, I recommend a strong grade magnet.
  • There is a high neckline but no hood.
  • There seem to be 10-12 blue “points” and the same number of blue diamonds between each “point”.
  • There are three different shades of blue-green on the “points”- each ligher than the last, with the brightest shade of blue on the diamonds.
  • The tails of her ribbon hang just below her bustline.
  • There is no difference in the lining color, perhaps there isn’t even lining at all?
  • It’s a rounded cape all the way around.
  • It seems to be almost a few shades lighter and more blue-green than the green seen between the pleats of her dress.

I hope this helps you, laurynsworld! :)
