I'm making a Judge Dredd/YuGiOh crossover with some friends. Thanks to our schools tech block it should turn out great. Any suggestions about how to go about some things? Like making a Lawgiver Dual disk, the Utility belt, or where to get many black jackets and boiler suits on the cheap?


Can ya guess the theme yet?

Remaking Padme's Picnic Dress from Star Wars
Padme Picnic dress re-make

I am re-making Padme's picnic dress and a new improved corset after 4 years I finally know how to make it better.
Though all the skirt and blouse has to have hand embroiered chain stitch on it all over with no gaps in the train, plus sewing on all these little butterfly shaped sequins.
I have to have it finsihed by 4th April for my costume exhibit, see my website for details:-


Only 4 weeks to go and I have half the skirt left to do, will I make it!!

Thanks form

What is it?: MKIV Mjolnir armour Red SPartan (Halo 3), from EVA foam.

How is it going?: Now that I've figured out how to use the stuff to achieve the effects I want, pretty well. At least it was until we ran out of mats. Again.

When is it for?: London MCM Expo May 2013

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?: Trying on all the upper body armour parts with my new undersuit, and walking around the house like a boss.

12 Mar 2013 - 22:2798858
What is it? Alucard - Hellsing

How is it going? Its going great, just waiting for final bits to arrive so I can make any changes necessary.

When is it for? London expo in May (Saturday). Music festival in August as all my friends want to dress up.

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Pulling some fun poses and working out a realistic way to carry the guns (there very big)

13 Mar 2013 - 15:5298917
Now I can post...

What is it? Taric the Gem Knight from League of Legends - http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/75430

How is it going? Rushing around like a headless chicken since I've been ill for a fair few days and got busy doing theatre work this week.

When is it for? Gemucon, or failing that spectacularly for any unforeseen reason, MCM May.

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Buying tons of stuff, and I mean tons of it, and seeing it slowly coming together.

The most fun was seeing how useful webbing is for my harness and what will be belt/behind the scenes straps for armor. Bugger me that stuff is amazing! Making gems in Sketchup 3D is also neat!

I will post lots of journal entries, I'm a stickler for that, and this is my first costume totally made by myself fully with nothing pre-brought - only bit I don't dare do is a full shoe, so I'll do a cover over some trainers which seems acceptable in all cases


13 Mar 2013 - 15:5798918
*takes deep breath*
What is it? Shiva Summon from Final Fantasy X/X-2 (≧▽≦)

How is it going? Slow and tedious as hell. T___T She is one of my dream cosplays and I want to make sure she is as good as my abilities will allow. So far, I am stuck handsewing sequins to a bra XD I'm looking forward to tackling that wig with my friend Alyx though

When is it for? London expo in May (Saturday) I hope.. o____0

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Not really at the moment. I'm just dealing with the small fiddly bits before I tackle DAT WIG which will be the most fun and most traumatising I think

13 Mar 2013 - 17:1298923
What is it?

Adam Jensen (without coat, or Uber hard to make augmented arms model)

How is it going?

Going well, got all the materials together and just starting to chip away at all the dog work before hitting up the details. Currently starting work on eva foam chest armour.

When is it for?

Either Eurogamer 2013 or MCM Oct 2013 or both..

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?

realising I should have bought a decent scalpel instead of my old leather man.. lesson learnt and earned in blood.. but trying on the armour template was cool

14 Mar 2013 - 04:1698965
What is it? Lancelot (Beserker)From Fate Zero
How is it going? Could be faster. Sword consumed more time than I'd thought, ordering the materials was a long process too. It's my first cosplay.
When is it for? MCM May 2013
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Making the chest armour piece was suprisingly fun, especially now that it's holding together and I can wear it. This is an older photo now, but this is what it looked like just yesterday.

What is it?
Cahin the harlequin from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

How is it going?
Much better that I expected – I have never made a costume from scratch before and I don’t have a pre-made pattern but so far nearly everything that I have tried seems to have worked. It’s very challenging though and I am spending just as long thinking about how to make and attach each section as I am spending on physically making the costume

When is it for?
London MCM Expo May 2013. I should be able to achieve this although I may not be able to add all of the minor details that I was planning

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?
Trying on the mask/hat/jacket and then looking in the mirror and seeing the harlequin looking back at me

31 Mar 2013 - 23:55100193
What is it?
Nausicaa and Princess Mononoke
How is it going?
Ok, could be better could be waaaay worse!
When is it for?
Mononoke maybe CFCC and no date for Nausicaa yet (don't want to end up rushing it)!
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?
I'm working with plastiroc on a helm for Nausicaa which is quite fun, it's only the second time that I've worked with plastiroc so let's see how it goes!! Also I've bought face paint for Mononoke (for her 'curse mark' which should be fun to try out ^^

08 Apr 2013 - 14:03100572
What is it? Lucian from Lunar Knights

How is it going? Pretty well, actually. I need to make the coat still though, and the leg armour... And the head of Jormungandr.

When is it for? London MCM May Expo

Have there been any fun bits so far? Working out how to make armour, attempting to not melt the thin foam with a glue gun. I failed. Epicly. Also, trying to figure out the blue parts of the coat.

23 Apr 2013 - 19:23101460
What is it?: Aeon from Castlevania: Judgement

How's it going?: Although I managed to get a set of pants done, I wasn't entirely happy with them. So, with both time and money running pretty tight, I decided to use the back-up clothes (essentially buying Aeon's outfit ahead of time in case I wasn't proficient or quick enough to get it done myself... which I'm soooo not!) and, in doing so, vastly reduce my required workload - and the associated stress - for the next month.

Granted, this puts me out of the realm of eligibility for the Masquerade but, with my tendency to be gripped by stage fright, it's not as big a hit to my enjoyment plans. Besides, it's my first year doing this! Gotta work up to the big stuff.

So, after this choice, all I have to do now is finish off the boots, cut/sand the pieces for the sword (and fit them together) and get the accessories (chains and keyring) done.

When is it for?: London MCM (May 2013)

Any fun bits?: They're all to come, no doubt. ^_^
