Finished Commissions

I wasn’t going to post this at first but… I thought I mind as well so I can remember all the commissions I’ve done~

A copy of the Eevee Gijinka Hermsi designed for me~

These two commission were done sometime in the past 3 months… Glad the commissionee liked them =3 I’m also really happy when they send me pictures of them wearing it~ It’s like having a fashion designer’s designs on a runway~ lol!!

From here on out I’ll be um… reducing the amount of commissions even more. Nothing that will suck up too much of my time because honestly… I will probably get more money from selling things at an artist alley table than commissions. The ones who get nice commissions from me are lucky >.> I charge less than I should at the moment xD

I’ll be updating again soon~~ Classes start next week so I hope I can juggle everything!

All made by me~ Email for for a quote on commissions~

See this beast? It’s my new serger =3 Somewhat cheap but a great investment~ I got it… maybe a week ago? I’m still getting used to it but already it has made my life easier (unless the thread breaks… in which is very annoying if it’s the upper or lower looper).

So far my review of this serger is really… great. It’s gotten countless of 4-5 stars with reviews online which made me more confident in buying this. Weirdly enough… it got better reviews than a singer serger. I was surprised… I mean its.. Singer! That’s like one of the top ‘dogs’ in the sewing business.. from what I can tell at least.

Here… some lovely work I was able to experiment with during my short time of using it thus far. Look, I haven’t even been able to change the thread colors to match cause I’m out of threads! xD

Above is a somewhat cleaner attachment of zippers… relatively… compared to my last one I guess.

Above is just scrap fabric. It was me playing with the tensions of the threads so it all looked nice. And in the end… still didn’t get it right. Lol!

Last weekend I finished a lovely commission. Here’s some of the in progress work~ Did Eevee all over again which was oddly fun… you know your cosplay deprived when a commission makes you happy to be sewing again…. lol!! Not even the money aspect. Lol! (I barely made money from it anyhow.. I was better off taking minimum wage work. Would’ve made more money).

I’ll be posting more, maybe a hoodie next week =3

This No Face was awesome~ And the character to the right.. I’m not sure where they are from o.o but they were awesome and I’ve seen a lot of cosplays from that series/game. (I tried getting pics with them but they kept being bombarded T.T)

Photobucket

I think my friends think I’m absolutely crazy xD See this picture? I saw these guys a couple times but nevergot a picture with him cause… I dunno o.o I went COMPLETELY squeally when I saw them walking towards where I was standing. So this was the awkward picture result xDD Sorry to the two if you were freaked out >.>;;

Photobucket

Sorry Day 1 pictures are kinda sparse. I was only in the south hall taking pictures for a little bit then had things to do >.< Every year I say I’ll get a lot of pictures but it seems like the same amount!!
