WELP, I didn't get everything finished for my cosplay, but I at least have stuff to wear. I'm gonna come back home tommorrow evening to try to finish up a few more things for Roy, but that's it. :V My cosplay plans are:
Friday: Virion + Naoto (if I get tired of wearing armor)
Saturday: Roy + Naoto (if I get tired of wearing armor)
Sunday: Naoto (BECAUSE I'LL BE TIRED;;)
Here's how my cosplays turned out, btw!
My pants for Virion are just going to be jeans, btw;;; I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE PANTS, but I ran out of time. orz As for Roy, there's still a couple things to like I said. Ideally I'll have the gloves, sword, belt buckle, and boot flaps done for tomorrow... but honestly, I don't think I'll be able to make the gloves. xD; I bought a pattern, but I've never successfully done gloves before.
I'll probably be bringing both of these back to Anime USA, so hopefully by then I'll have added touch ups and stuff!
AND YEP. SEE Y'ALL LATER!!
MOOD: WHAT THE HECK
CURRENTLY WORKING ON: COSPLAY. Well actually, I'm going to bed. But TOMORROW. COSPLAY.
So somehow, I managed to do practically NOTHING FOR THE PAST TWO MONTHS, AND NOW IT'S TIME FOR OTAKON! AND MY COSTUMES AREN'T READY!!!! :^D Idk if you noticed, but I haven't really had the chance to get online extensively this week, 'cause I'm trying to finish stuff up in time for Otakon. ""orz Here's some pics of stuff I've done the past couple days!
Okay, so I didn't make this;;; My friend is doing a Persona 4 cosplay, so I thought it'd be fun if I joined her as Naoto (bottom left) since the summer casual outfit is easy enough.
I kinda got mixed up when I was buying clothes, though, and thought that Naoto's shadow design was her normal design, so I went and bought this jacket:
WELL, I'VE BEEN WANTING A BLAZER LIKE THIS FOR A WHILE NOW, SO IT'S OKAY!!
This cosplay was super last minute, so the colors are kind of off... I might add a band to the hat to make it look more like Naoto's hat instead of some random hat, but we'll see. TOO MUCH TO DO!
This is all the armor and stuff I've finished before today for my Virion (left) and Roy (right) cosplays. Those pants on the right are just pants I already owned so... I REALLY HAVN'T FINISHED MUCH AT ALL FOR ROY... I'm really happy with how his armor is coming out, though. :^D
I finished Roy's sword today. :V I already had the base done, but I finished up the handle.
I SPENT THE PAST TWO/THREE/IDK DAYS WORKING ON THE HANDLE FOR THIS SWORD, I HAVE NO IDEA WHY SOMETHING SO TINY TOOK ME SO LONG TO DO. It didn't actually take a terribly long time (maybe several hours if I did it in one sitting), but it still took waaaaaay longer than I thought it would. I think it was just the heating up of worbla and cutting out of foam and worbla that TOOK. FOREVER. I'm so glad it's done, though. Can't wait to start painting it and getting it done!! >:V
Just a pic of the progress I made today. I finished the sword handle, completely finished Roy's second shoulder piece, and started working on Roy's breastplate. MY PLANS FOR TOMORROW ARE PRETTY HEFTY, BUT... IF EVERYTHING GOES AS PLANNED, I'LL HAVE A LOT OF STUFF DONE BY THE END OF TOMORROW.
IF YOU'RE GOING TO OTAKON, let me know!! :^D If you want to. Maybe we can meet up! 8^D I feel like I've never really met any of my friends on theO in real life. I guess y'all aren't east coasters like I am;;;
Anyway, I'm off to bed so I can get some rest and wake up early again to COSPLAY WORK. Have a grand whatever, y'all.
YO. What up, my friends. This week, I wanna try and catch up on things I meant to do earlier, and just stuff I'm supposed to do. :U So I'm making a list and posting it here so I don't forget.
- Commission for my sister's friend
- First and Second place prizes for my challenge
- Super late birthday gift for a friend
- Fashion requests from my fashion world
This is all I can think of off the top of my head... if I owe you anything, please tell me in the comments! ;0;>
Also, I finished my Virion breastplate, yesterday, so I thought I'd show some pictures. 8D
I took this picture to show how the armor looks before I add a layer of metallic paint, and before gloss. :V IT LOOKS SO MUCH MORE VIBRANT, HERE, IT KIND OF MAKES ME MAD...
And here it is with metallic paint and gloss. I like that it's ~*~shiny~*~, but the colors just feel so much duller. orz Weh, oh well. I'M LEARNING. *U*b
And here's some pictures of me wearing it with the other armor I made. I haven't added straps, yet, so I'm just kind of balancing it on my shoulder, haha. xD
Overall, I'm really happy with how this came out!! I was afraid that this was just going to fail completely. xD; I still need to work on the actual sewing for the costume, though. :U I should have this done in time for Otakon!
That's all I've got to say, for now. -u- Have a nice day! :D
Mood: Itchy arm. (???)
I really wanna practice some coloring tonight!! >:M If you have any line arts that you want colored, please send them my way!! I can't guarantee that I'll color your line art, but I would really like some lines to work with so I can experiment with coloring and stuff. >_<
BUT UH, yeah. If you've got any finished line arts that need to be colored, let me know! ;u;/
Decided to log my comments for Aryia's comment slam, so I can keep track of them. :^D
