As always, you have all been doing some amazing work! And we even have a firework creator on here, WOW! I have been crazy busy for the last while and unable to post anything. San Diego Comic-Con was last week and I was rushing like crazy to finish all my costume pieces before leaving the country to attend. I nearly did so.. but there were a few things I was finishing up the night before in the hotel room.

The other thing is that my employer decided to terminate my job while they knew I was out of the country on vacation and unreachable. It was a horrible thing for them to do and Ive been in the curl up in a ball phase since I got back. I was hoping some of you might be able to suggest some names of fabric companies that design in-house lines or use freelancers because Id like to continue working in textile or graphic illustration if I can. I was told to look into Moda and Camelot Cottons, any other company names you can suggest would be great (I dont quilt so I dont have much interaction with patterned fabrics in my sewing life)!

On to the projects (the photos aren't great but I do plan on shooting the costumes later)!
C.A. Cupid cosplay:
-bow and arrow earrings
-bow and arrow ring
-arm guard
-screened gloves, made using butchers paper traced over a pattern I digitally illustrated
-screened tights, made using a silk screen of a pattern I digitally illustrated
-hair heart headband
-bone wings

Frankie Stein Home Ick cosplay:
-bolt ring

Duela Dent cosplay
-overbust corset
-collar / shoulder pads
-gloves / sleeves
-waist belt with backpack attachment
-flower broach with tube attachment
-hip belt
-skirt / bustle
-leggings / garter straps
-leg warmers

Thank you for letting me take over the thread momentarily with my images! Posting all the hard work I did is making me feel a bit better about life right now.

All the clothes are adorable, I love the skullette fabric too Smiley The jewelry box is so clever!

I received from tapestrymlp yesterday! It took me a day to get the pictures up after having a really bad migraine attack while in public this morning that knocked me out for the day but I am determined to share the epicness!! Smiley She made me an adorable Ghoulia bookmark (which I've already been using non-stop for my research.. can you believe I didn't own a bookmark?? I totally needed one!), a bracelet, super strong magnets, a piano cuff bracelet like Operetta (bottom image), and a mask. YES! A MASK! Just like Operettas!! And it was molded to fit the shape of my face too! I am sooo excited about it Cheesy It fits perfectly and I take a photo when I feel better and have a spare minute. Thank you!!

Sorry it took me a day to put this up, had a really bad migraine attack while in public this morning and it knocked me out for the day. This was my package from Koreena! She sent an amazing knitted hat (which is extra great because the one I was using died a few weeks ago), an adorable fox pincushion and bird pin from my Pinterest which I LOVE, and a toy that I plan on tormenting my OH with Cheesy Sorry it's not the best picture, my head still feels like it might explode!

37  Doctor Who Themed Travel Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by smashu on: March 29, 2012 09:14:22 PM
I've been a fan of Doctor Who since before the 2005 series started. I love it! I started making a designing a travel wallet pattern for a swap and after seeing my partner's love for The Doctor decided to do it in a DW theme Smiley Everything was stenciled using butcher's paper that I cut out by hand. I even did an Adipose print on the inside! There are a ton of pockets, some clear, and also a zippered pouch that runs along the entire inside of the wallet.

Kookaloo_Starr: The hat looks really professional! Serious skills Smiley

This will likely be the last project I post for a while :/ I think April is going to be a cluster-f due the serious deadlines for my MA. And it's my birthday month! Sad Maybe I can work on a private swap or something with more lenient deadlines..ANYWAYS! I made this for a swap! It's a Doctor Who themed travel wallet Smiley Now that I designed a pattern I suppose I should make one of these for myself.. someday! lol
