It’s been a while! Rose City Comic Con is quickly approaching and I’ve been spending a lot of time getting ready for it! I have two costumes that I’m making from scratch, and another that I’m both pondering and/or designing.
Currently, I’m working on Pidge from Voltron and Sucy from Netflix’s Little Witch Academia, which is amazing by the way and you should all go watch it. For Pidge, I bought some colored fleece from Joanns, a long auburn wig and round glasses from Wish.Com, and I might either pick up some shorts from Walmart or wear a pair of my boyfriend’s shorts. I’m not very good at making pants that fit my bum.
While working on Sucy, I tried to get my fabric at Walmart, which is a lot cheaper than Joann’s. However, their variety and selection is extremely lacking so I did end up buying my fabric from Joann’s. I got a silky dress material and used the backside which was matte and the exact color that I wanted. I ended up making the vest of this outfit twice. The first one I made from altering a vest pattern for me, but it just did not come together well and the constant altering made it look strange. So using that at a pattern, I remade the vest and the second iteration ended up looking so much better. I ordered her wig off Amazon, which is typically what I do with wigs, and it’s worked out pretty well for me so far.
What are you guys working on now?
