1  Re: Anime/Manga Swap Round 5 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by angelcallie on: February 22, 2010 06:26:54 PM
Yaaay! I received from BunnieBard! It came as a Tamaki Emergency Survival kit!

Everything all together

Containing: 1 dog (even though he's not Antoinette, he's adorable)(besides, I <3 Hayate so much)
Firstly, I got this great knitted/crocheted Black Hayate pillow!

His back is so soft! I love his little footpads. He's already found a place among my collection of pillows.

An Ouran High School logo etched mug (for tasty commoner drinks!)

:/ You can't really see it well in the picture, but it's awesome. It was immediately put to use with some tasty Earl Grey.

1 Kuma-chan

Adorable! I love Kuma-chan and his bored little face.

Ouran Magnets

Another not so great picture. But the magnets are lovely.

There was also some tasty commoners ramen, pocky, and an adorably tiny jar of instant coffee!

Thanks so much BunnieBard! I love it all!

Okay, finally my computer and my camera have reconciled themselves to one another so I can show you all the awesome stuff TPauSilver sent me!

Everything together:

The biggest thing she sent was this life-sized Black Hayate plushie from FMA. I <3 Hayate so much . . .

He's awesome not only because he's cuddly, but also because he has this little zipper along the bottom side so that I can use him as a cosplay prop once I get myself together and make my Hawkeye cosplay, so I can keep my wallet and camera in there. It's such a great idea, and now I can't wait to make the costume so I can carry him around!


She also made me this Axis Powers Hetalia bag which is totally awesome!

It has little velcro squares and 13 little countries so I can pick and choose who I feel like wearing on the bag at any given moment. The little guys are so detailed, too!

And then there is the pretty Utena rose box.

The inside lid has the little passage about the world's shell that the student council members recite on their weird little elevator ride. It was also full of delicious candy (which is already half gone, om nom nom).

Thank you so so so much, TPauSilver! I love everything!

3  Integra Wingates Hellsing doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: February 18, 2010 10:49:34 AM

This is a doll of Integra from the manga/anime Hellsing. I made her for a swap.

Integra scrutinizes.

She's a ragdoll sort of doll, meaning that she isn't jointed or really posable since she has no armature or anything, but she is soft like a plushie. Her hands, however, do have some pipecleaners in the fingers so she can hold things. I drafted her as a more feminine version of my regular ragdoll pattern. I drafted the head as well, though it was basically a variation on the head from ghilie's poppet pattern. Her skin is alova and her features are painted/drawn on.


I made her glasses using some of the clear plastic that they make packages and boxes out of for kids toys and things like that. I cut them into little circles and punctured them with an upholstery needle and then threaded some wire in to connect them and make the little ear parts. They actually wrap around her ears so that they don't fall off.

As for her clothes, they are all removable. Her shoes are felt loafer sort of things, her suit is made of a linen that really looks like tweed or suiting of some kind. Her gloves are made of white knit jersey, and yes, they are removable, too!

Her jacket is double-breasted (though only the outside set of buttons has actual buttonholes, so I guess it's sort of mock double-breasted). Her blouse is made of some shiny shirting I had lying around and her tie is just a bit of hemmed broadcloth, though I did make the little wrap with the cross with a hook and eye closure in the back so that it would be the right shape and not too hard to take off.

From the back.

Just some of her outerwear Smiley

Le gasp! In her shirtsleeves!

I even put the little crease down the front of her pant legs, though you can only sort of see it in this picture

Her hair I did by using one of those plastic net bag thingies that are sometimes around candy or cheese and I latch-hooked an enormous amount of very light blonde yarn onto it and sewed it down on her head. She looked at me disapprovingly the entire time, but hey, now she has hair. I painted her eyes and used fabric marker for her mouth. Her eyebrows are light so I just penciled them on, haha.

I just like that picture.

10. Paintbrush roll

Because my paintbrushes were getting unruly.

11. Capricorn sewing tools bag

12. Archeologists’ baby quilt

13. “Liv + Bernie” Narwhal (a Valentine’s commission)

I come to report my first two completed crafts of 2010.

1. Mustang gloves

I made the gloves myself and embroidered the symbol for fire alchemy on them.

2. Utena cosplay as a birthday present for RevolutionaryGirl

6  Utena Cosplay ^_^ in Costumes: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: January 07, 2010 03:06:46 PM
For a friend's birthday, I made her an Utena cosplay to wear to the geeky awesome conventions we go to together. Utena is her favorite anime, so I thought it would be appropriate.

Here she is attacking me with a kitchen knife Grin

The main part of it is the jacket. It's the base of the costume.

The back

The jacket itself is made of navy twill with red bias tape.

But the really fun part of the jacket is that it is convertible. Utena wears this jacket as her school uniform but then when she goes to duel, it transforms slightly into this:

I made the epaulettes, chain, ruffle, and cuffs removable so that the jacket could be worn both ways.

Removable stuff removed:

I attached the "chain" to the top button of the jacket with a felt button cover hot-gued onto the back of the charm at the top of the chain.

The ruffle attaches to the inside of the jacket with snap buttons above each of the vents and the cuffs attach with velcro on the inside of the jacket sleeves.

But I am particularly proud of the epaulets. I made them using half-sphere foam pieces used for flower arranging and a thin layer of paper mache on there to make it smooth. Then I pulled some shiny red stretch fabric over it to make it, well, shiny and red. After that, I hot glued the gold lame on there and then all the little tasselly bits, then a circular piece of felt to cover all the glue. Sewed to the circular piece of felt is a little sleeve so that the epaulet can fit over the little band on the shoulder of the jacket.

Jacket shoulder

With epaulet

But possibly my favorite thing about the jacket are the four buttons on the front. I decoupaged the Rose Crest from the show onto them and I really like the way they came out. It's the little things, you know?

I just remembered I never posted pics of the Christmas presents I made for RevolutionaryGirl

Kimblee gloves

I embroidered the symbols on the palms.

Beowulf bleach shirt

The front and back are covered in Beowulf, in the Old English. The sleeves were as well, but then I spilled the bleach on one of them and I had to remove them. But I replaced them with shiny, vaguely chain-mail-y fabric.

Hellsing messenger bag

9  Giant Squid plushie! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: December 22, 2009 12:02:38 AM
As a Christmas present for my good, deep-sea-creature loving friend, I made a giant squid!

He is huge! His body is about 2' and his tentacles are just as long again, so he's about four feet in total. Huge I tell you!

With tentacles all neat.

And crazy tentacles.

Inside all those tentacles, he has a little squid beak

His body and tentacles are made of off-white fleece. The tentacles have some beans in the end and a little bit of fluff to hold them down there so that they have a bit of floppy weight. The beak is made of black corduroy. And, the best part:

He's eating my arm! There is a belly beyond that beak!

It's a pouch made of red fleece.

Inside his squidy gullet are some of the things he has eaten.

A sperm whale, the Yellow Submarine, and a yeti.

But even after that meal, he's still hungry (he didn't get to be a giant squid by doing nothing, you know), so he decided to make a meal of a nearby corgi!
