1  8-bit blanket: Big Barda's Helmet in Crochet: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: September 24, 2017 02:47:46 PM
Big Barda is a DC hero, and one of my favorites, so I came up with an 8-bit blanket pattern I could wear like a cape. You know, like you do.

437 squares and so much seaming.

2  Poodle Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gaylefrancis on: July 13, 2017 02:47:55 PM
I posted this in costumes, as it's part of a cosplay, and it was suggested I post it here as well. I don't think that violates the double-posting rule, since it's not a full repost.

Anyway, I made this poodle bag. Completely crochet with a bit of sewing for the details. It's got a flap on the back to close it, and the cheeks are small pockets.

3  Yuri on Ice, casual Viktor Nikiforov cosplay (complete with Makkachin!) in Costumes: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: July 12, 2017 07:15:43 PM
Yuri on Ice is the ice skating anime that is currently ruining lives all over the globe. One of the main guys is named Viktor Nikiforov, and while I want to make ALL the costumes from the show, it seemed best to start reasonable and recreate a casual look. Everything you see is crocheted. I'm happy to answer any questions!

Reference photo:

Sweater and wig (wig is longer because he had longer hair in the past, and it was easier to make the wig longer):

Legally required Makkachin:

4  Daredevil Cosplay in Costumes: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: September 06, 2016 03:03:23 PM
Based off one of my very favorite panels from the comic:

Sweater and cane were both found at Goodwill. Used iron on letters for the sweater, and it's white duct tape and red masking tape for the cane. Devil horns are barrettes I found on amazon, and the shoes are custom-made Chucks that I also use in my Captain Marvel cosplay (luckily, Matt's original suit was yellow, so they totally work). The mistletoe on the cane is crocheted.

And the original panel for reference:

5  Crocheted Hawkeye Cosplay (Kate Bishop) - 4 images in Costumes: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: June 15, 2015 01:45:53 PM
Based of the look and feel of the Fraction/Aja/Hollingsworth Hawkeye comic, I made a Kate Bishop cosplay. It's all crochet. The Converse were made from the pattern, and I winged the shooting glove and dress. The bullseyes were made separately and sewn on, as were the stripes. The bullseye at my waist is a pocket, so I'll have a place to stash cards/money when I'm on the con floor.

Made with Cascade Luna, which is a very nice cotton yarn, so it should breathe at least a little. And in character posing because why not.

Yes, yes, it's very important to save the world, but coffee is also important.

Clint. What. I don't--HOW.

6  Ruffly, bright sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: March 22, 2015 11:15:34 PM
I was trying to just make a raglan with intentionally bad color change (changing color just wherever the previous yarn ran out), but the nature of the yarn (Cascade Fixation) gave the edging a ruffle I didn't plan for (the yarn has a very elastic stretch to it), but I love it a whole lot now that it's done. It's comfortable and a perfect weight for the current weather conditions.

7  Crocheted Nightwing cosplay with a 1950s twist in Costumes: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: March 20, 2015 06:22:02 PM
The Discowing Nightwing costume is probably one of my favorites in all of comics. It is so ridiculous, and so I just had to make it more ridiculous with a poofy skirt and an adorable little handbag. This is the first time I've had the full costume together, so the poses aren't great, but I'm really proud of the whole thing. Tip to toe, it's all crochet save the buttons on the shoes and the ribbon on the mask.

And, of course, the look that started it all:

I'll be rolling this out at ECCC this coming weekend, and I can't wait.

Holy smokes, that is awesome! Fantastic stitching!

Thank you so much! I actually finally got a pic with the pants I also made to go along with it, which I added to the main post but am ridiculously proud of, so I'm showing here:

9  Captain Marvel cosplay (Now with actually 5 images that include the pants) in Costumes: Completed Projects by gaylefrancis on: February 02, 2015 09:23:55 PM
The jacket is crochet except for the zipper, which I sewed by hand. The shoes I designed on Converse's website. I actually crocheted pants to go along with the jacket, but I tossed on my dark wash jeans to wear the whole get-up to work, and I think I like them better. There is a lucky hat still in the works, but I am super proud of the jacket, so I wanted to get it up now.

Jacket was worked raglan-style (top down). Pockets were added on top of red trim. The star is actually four pieces using square stitch that were then sewn into place.


Proof of pants:

I thought they'd look funny with the jacket, but it actually all comes together like I pictured it. So, crocheted pants it is, then.

I never would have thought a crocheted costume could look this cool Smiley

It was really fun to piece together. This is actually the second one I did. The first was Big Barda, which was way more intense, but I'm glad I went big on my first one because it gave me more confidence for this one:
