scarves, cosplay, crafts, and designy-wimey things~

    I’m arranging my sketches with construction notes and details so I can file them away in a sort of pseudo tech pack for costumes I do. I got the green light from teachers and industry-working friends that it was a good idea and advice on how to arrange it. :> When the costumes are finished I’ll photograph a model wearing it to display in order to keep a more professional image. Some other pages I’ll add in after are measurements/sewing details, fabric samples/sourcing, and WIPS/photographs!

    All my costumes are gonna have like, 15~20 pages lmao my poor binder.

    I’m posting these now because I hope they reach out and help other cosplayers who might need ideas of closures/materials/details, ect. I’m pretty detailed-oriented (lol) so while I’m focused only on my own costumes I think it’ll be a valuable resource that I want to share.

    Happy cosplaying! <3

    Do not remove sources. I am the designer who illustrates and theorizes these concepts, so whether it’s fashion or cosplay, these illustrations should still be credited.

  • Anonymous asked : I would LOVE to cosplay your Rogue Sailor Venus but... I am not clever or creative and I haven't a clue as to what to make the front of her costume look like. Any possibility of you drawing her again with the front visible sometime, for funsies?


    I’ve been asked a couple of times for Sailor Venus’ RPG design from the front. Here’s a just a quick sketch. Basically under the large cape and hood she wears a lose, light orange blouse. A belt around her waist and a belt (connected to the waist belt) specifically for her short sword sheath. Hers is a very simplistic outfit that doesn’t hinder her movement or speed.

    Hope this helped in some way to any cosplayers :)

    I could study for the Mandarin exam tomorrow, or I could plan a coord to wear to it.

    Now might not be the best time to talk to me about priorities.

    (加油 加油 x_x)

    Update:I am in jeans and a t-shirt. Productivity fail all-round. 

    Update #2: I managed a 94/100 due to lucking out regarding the composition topic (last time it was soccer and things didn’t go smoothly). All is well, I didn’t write a single traditional character; but I did make the embarrassing mistake of writing 作天 (probably not even a word?) instead of 昨天 (yesterday) -_-
