Currently working on my “commission” of the Male wizard. Here’s how it’s roughly going out… Looks… okay.
The blue is the base. What’s left? Just the cape and the black over.. thing.
Other than that. AX is a little bit more than a week away and I really hope I can finish everything in time. I’m glad I have a little help, Gee is doing all the props while I am doing all the tedious sewing work! Lol~
Ahh… can’t wait for AX! I’ll have my line-up sometime next week before AX so you’ll be able to see spot me hopefully! Hopefully >.> Planning on NOT doing 4 costumes this year! (Gasp?!) I only have 2 set and will be working on a 3rd hopefully… hopefully!! =3 You know me~ I’ll work out the impossible if I have to ^-^
(And what helps better than a desk full of snacks~?)
Alrighty this is a little post on how awesome having such a talented partner is crime is =3
To the left is just red fabric where, you can’t see but, Gee (Herms?) Sketched out the flames with pencil. And I have to say… trying to draw on fabric that is not very stable is hard, so I’m glad even without some chalk it still worked out fine. To the right is the finished product cutting it all out.
Now remember, I’m cheap and this is 100% cotton so it frays o.o Sooo… I bought fray check and every edge there is lined with it so it looks clean! And I believe it does =D This took about a total of 2 hours fray checking and cutting out. Of course I was also doing it while watching tv =3
Now to the right is you can see some of it being glued on! I’m using fabric glue which is.. pretty pernament o.o I really like it because .. it’s durable and clean looking~ (aka no steams for this sort of project) This is my first time trying anything like this and I have to say it’s very time consuming o.o but I love the finished product in the end~ Which is to the right. The purple at the bottom is the inside of the coat xD
Better pictures will be up when I finish both commissions completely! But for now.. I’m pretty glad with the new technique I did~ About time right? I like it, a bit costly… but in the end it was worth it =D I am no longer afraid of flames!! (But I still suck at drawing them!!! Hence why Gee drew them =3)
Yes. By monday this will be completely done and I’ll be finishing Lenne next week and hopefully get a mini shoot somewhere~
