Description
fell inlove with sucker punch as soon as I saw the trailer, it has everything i look for in a film, girl power, dragons, orcs, guns, EPIC soundtrack explosions, fire.. ;D and ofcourse their AMAZING outfits, I adore all of the characters, I was especially impressed with vanessa hudgens and also emily browning. BAH i love all of the actresses but as a cosplayable character for me would be Sweet Pea :D her outfit is my favourite and I think she'd be the one i'd most pull off, being that I'm tall and fit abbie corinish's figure i think, just hoping I can pull off BLONDE xD

we've got loads of other girls doing different characters, we're hoping to do a massive photoshoot sometime ^^ possibley in october at mcm but maybe at another date too.

Okay so it's complete and will do for expo for now ^^

Hoping to remake quite a bit of this costume - seeing as alot of it was a very last minute rush!! I'll leave it as complete for now though.

finally making progress on this :) should be finished for MCM May, 2012.


IT'S COMPLETE. FINALLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

*sighhhhhhhhhhh* :)

oh yay you're doing her too! tbh I thought there'd be more people doing suckerpunch (apart from babydoll) but there isn't o.O
thanks for your nice words, good luck with your sweet pea! :D xxx

I really like how you're using real leather on this. If you need to do any more hand sewing I recommend buying a sewing awl like this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1x-BEADING-AWL-LEATHER-PUNCHING-TOOL-5-LAWL143...

You use it to punch holes as you go which makes pushing the needle through so much easier. I use mine so often it's hard to think how I lived without it, it really saves your fingers.

Yes, Im impressed with the amount of research and your pattern looks spot on. Not everyone can make patterns up like this.

Quote: "yah, i don't suit blonde lmfao!" - Actually you do! You just arent used to seeing yourself that way so seems odd to you, but you look great. Hope I spot you at the Expo. Is this for Sat or Sun?

Journal

Weapons assembled :) (Posted 23rd May 2012)

Mounted the weapons and scabbard onto the holster. Still need to paint sweet pea's sword, will get round to that tomorrow. Then she's finished! :)

Will consider this complete now.... xD

SWOOOOOOOORD (Posted 22nd May 2012)

I just added a piece onto the existing handle with FIMO. uhm, yeah it isn't very straight LOL I don't care. hopefully the NEXT time I will MAKE my own sword and it will be GRAND >: o just need to learn how to work wood. D: fgkldhsksklmfdsflsf
so yeah just needs a paint then wrap the handle in pleather. then neglect it and forget how awful it looks and how terrible I am at making props. :D

Styled a wig. (Posted 19th May 2012)

and it actually turned out quite alright, if I do say so myself! considering I'm absolutely USELESS with hair. I don't think it's the correct way of doing the bun she wears...but I don't care. ;D
OHH and don't worry, those stray brunette hairs will be covered by the wig properly, just need to losen it a teeny bit.

BRAAAAAAAAA (Posted 18th May 2012)

that's right. with the little...thing in the middle. i dunno what it is. ;D

Scabbard (Posted 23rd March 2012)

cardboard, glue, faux leather, paint, foam..... staples ;D

Boots (Posted 23rd March 2012)

bought a pair of black faux suede thigh highs. I then sewed 4 straps and then riveted the cartridges with some pleather. the cartridges are tubes covered in papier mache and acrylic paint. and blah. too tired to write lol kfjkdjfdksfl

Roasry (Posted 4th February 2012)

St Benedict cross with some black beads.

had no idea what sweet pea's cross is..or religion, I know nothing about it and nobody I knew could tell me anything about her cross. so i opted for a little st benedict, it looks like hers, it's a crucifix... it was CHEAP! so i went for it lol

Finished Holster/Harness (Posted 14th January 2012)

and my doggy :3

meh, sorry for the naff quality photo D:

Holster take 2! (Posted 14th January 2012)

I wasn't happy with the last one whatsoever. plus it fell apart :/

so i've remade it :3 10 times happier with this one! :D

1st image: 3 layers of foam glued together.

2nd image: painted khaki, cloest colour I could get to the straps.

3rd image: started with the edging and made the strap for my waist. had to cut the strap in half as it was too thick :P it was cheap and the best colour i could find!

4th image: speaks for itself.

Pauldron (Posted 11th December 2011)

sweet pea pauldron bought from Terry English.

everything so far ^^ (Posted 20th October 2011)

it's getting sooooo close to completion *.* i can't wait!

lining (Posted 20th October 2011)

gave the lining a what i like to call white-wash :P basically just painting a mixture of white acrylic and water with the same ratio to make it lighter. it's come out well!

Eyelets ^^ (Posted 15th October 2011)

eyelets! ^^ surprisingly quite easy to do! thanks to AlienQueen for showing me how to do them <3 love you!!

eyelets and laces loool (Posted 3rd October 2011)

LAWL! drew in some eyelets and laces on paint to see how it looked xD I'm itching to do them already!! agh!

With the holster (Posted 3rd October 2011)

i hemmed the right shoulder.
now it's just making the right sleeve, hemming over the front and bottom, hemming the back and then adding eyelets and lacing ^^

god i love it when stuff comes together <3 <3

Nearly finished coat! (Posted 2nd October 2011)

SO close to finishing.
just need to make the sleeve. hem the edges, add eyelets then lace it all up.
I think it's looking great so far, I'm so pleased ^^
although the sides don't line up properly, i'll just see if i can change it once the lacing is all in.

Lining (Posted 20th September 2011)

for the lining I bought a (what I thought to be) a beige Linen, when it arrived it was wayy too greeny :S more like Khaki. god I hate it when ebayers mis-describe things. I should really start ordering samples lol!
But I THINK I can get away with it, it's only the lining... right? D:

just experimented with washing it with some diluted white acrylic. seems to do the job!! ;)

Front sewn :) (Posted 19th September 2011)

just pinned to my Lara (mannequin)
just need to sew down the sides, then i can start sewing over the edges and the lining in. :) THEN to start on the otherside lol!

Jacket Tacked :) (Posted 19th September 2011)

jacket all tacked! I'll save doing the edges till the very end, as then i can sewi in the lining ;D

Coat pattern finished (Posted 10th September 2011)

FINALLY got round to completing Sweet Pea's coat pattern! I'm really pleased with how it looks, so hopefully I'll be starting this tomorrow and finished prefferabely before oct.

Holster (Posted 5th September 2011)

extremely confused about sweet pea's holster.. I think i've got the shape wrong completely. I know the top has two wide straps going over her shoulders but i couldn't achieve that with the materials i had. but i thought the bottom went the same way, but i've just noticed it doesn't.... lol! oh well :P
and yeh i am aware it's the wrong colour, but the straps i bought were a VERY greeny khaki so i had no choice but to paint the holster itself the same colour. looks alright though, anyway! xD

mock-up (Posted 7th August 2011)

practicing the front of the corset jacket, only the two front panels, i wanted to see where i needed to improve with the pattern cutting and also the hemming and what the thread looks like ect. the faux leather is only pinned to the mannequin so it looks very pants D:
I now know what ive done right and what ive done wrong and how much i need to do differently :) the stitching is rushed so it isn&amp;#039;t neat. I will take my time with the final and make it neat as best as i can :D

will start the real jacket the weekend ~

so far... (Posted 5th August 2011)

BAH my fingers are killing.

finally finished! (Posted 5th August 2011)

at LAST - the stitching just took TOO long. -.-
i got the hang of it in the end, thats why the right side is SOO much better than the left xD

btw, i know that the top two round bits are supposed to be long to go over the shoulder, but i only had an A4 piece of foam so i couldn't really make it any longer :S this'll do anyhow :)

foam (Posted 5th August 2011)

pattern drawn onto some craft foam... i've used 3 sheets for thickness.
I then painted it with acrylics paint - khaki is actually very difficault to make lol I tried to make the colour the same as the strap (on the right)
