Here's where the magic happens. I'll be posting about all of my experiences and experiments (both failed and successful ones), introducing you to my costumes, sharing fun stories, linking tutorials and useful products, and who knows what else!

 

Pre/Post Con Frenzy

Michael MacWolff

Hey guys, apologies for my absence last week, I was in a frenzy last week trying to get all of my junk together for ConCoction since I had a vendor table there and actually did really well! It was a flurry of ties, life counters, and gears to restock after the clearout of my inventory around Christmas, and I haven't had time to build it back up again. If you are interested, I have all of the leftover inventory up on my etsy store, including a bunch of new tie designs and the arrival of the [NEW AND IMPROVED] Bow TIE fighters! And they look a lot more like real bow ties now! They're available in traditional TIE, First Order TIE, TIE Interceptor, and TIE Advanced, so GO BUY ONE! ==> BUY IT HERE

So now that we're post-con and I have a moment to breath (haha, yeah right), I've put my nose back to the grindstone of propmaking and at the moment, also lots of costume-making! Suki and Sokka are well underway and thankfully are almost done minus a few seams and some bias tape, and some coats of paint, and shin guards, and... ok maybe I lied and there's a lot left to do, but they're coming along nicely! Check them out:

It's still missing the side flaps in this photo, but it actually looks like a Kyoshi warrior, HUZZAH!

These are the bracers, which look kinda weird when they're flat...

These used to be black fans, and now they're pretty gold ones! I never want to have to do that again because for as simple as it looks, they're a pain in the ass.

Sokka's weapons are finally getting some paint!

I am presently (and by that I mean it's literally sitting on the futon behind me) stitching Sokka's tunic together, there's bias tape in the arm holes that needs stitched in which I'd have gladly modeled for you all but it has a bunch of pins in it and I'm not in need of acupuncture at the moment.

The other fun project I managed to complete in the last couple of weeks was Isabella's necklace from Dragon Age. It probably looks familiar since I've made one before. Now I can make it even better cause I know how to work with worbla!

Funky understructure held together with masking tape. Yes, people, I am a professional.

See! Add some worbla and it looks much better!

Paint, medallions, and a fake gem! BOOM! We're done!

That's all folks! Join us next week for (maybe?) some finished Avatar: the Last Airbender warriors!
