Cos-tober - and the winner is...

Cos-tober has now finished, but we wanted to say well done to all who took part during the last month. We've loved seeing all the progress on your costumes and we hope it inspired a few of you to get productive! We'd also like to give an enormous thank you to Coscraft for providing a great prize and incentive, allowing us to run this promo. So without further ado, randomly selected by the Cos-tober elves, the winner of £30 Coscraft vouchers is... >>

Cos-tober is back!

Heard of Inktober or NaNoWriMo? Well we don't think cosplayers should be left out! So let's roll up our sleeves and get productive during the darker October evenings with a chance to win £30 in Coscraft vouchers. Cos-tober is back~ >>

 

Recent Progress Journals

pre-alterations

Alinthia

All items have arrived but just need altering! The skirt and jumper both need shortening and the patches need to be ironed onto the jumper. The wig is slightly different to her hair in the episode however, I am not confident in my wig styling skills so it will have to do!

Hiatus

White Tigress

So yeah...was almost done for Ame but the shoes left me with a toe injury a few days before the con and will need a new pair :(

Trousers Made!

WingedWalrus

So I had to prep for nightshifts... which meant staying up all night... so I did the usual thing and made a pair of trousers. Of course! Fairly simple, elastic waistband, white detailing at the bottom. Tried to make sure they would allow for movement for martial arts poses, so they aren't super well fitted but they fit well enough. And of course I added nice deep pockets because I AM POCKET OBSESSED.

Wig and Headband

WingedWalrus

Finally styled the wig... which has been sat around for two years... I'm not very good at wigs yet but every one is more practice! Also made the white zigzag headband, which I attempted before but have re-done with a much simpler design.
