Ramona Flowers (Volume 5 Cover) - Scott Pilgrim




Scott: Garlic bread is my favourite food. I could honestly eat it for every meal. Or just all the time without even stopping.
Ramona: You'd get fat.
Scott: No.
Ramona: You'd get totally fat.
Scott: I don't think I'd get fat. Why would I get fat?
Ramona: Bread makes you fat. Butter makes you fat.
Scott: Bread makes you fat??

The irony, that I cosplay the only American character in a Canadian-written and Canada-based comic. Ramona is awesome though! Although I probably identify more with Scott in the above quote...

I started on this costume before Volume 6 came out, which I kind of regret because I LOVE Ramona's dress from the end of Volume 6. I'll just have to cosplay her twice, it seems!

Worn at:
AmeCon 2010
May Expo 2011
October Expo 2012

That moment where you see the costume thumbnail and think, "...hmmm I don't remember this scene in the film...?" and then you realise that it's a cosplay picture. You total clone you! Awesome job :D

Progress Journal

24th May 2011

Nearly one year later...

So it turns out that my "back-up" machine that I spoke about in my journal post from July last year is actually pretty damn hardcore and I think it might be an industrial sewing machine in disguise. It sews thick leather like a proper powerhouse and I finally got Ramona's bag done!! I wish I had tried it out before now. There's a few things I would have done differently if I were to make it again but in the end I think it turned out pretty good :D

Repetition Galore

I finished off fitting the jacket tonight, and then did the top-stitching details for the front (no photos yet, sorry). I then set to work on these bad boys: 24 belt loops, 8 arm belts, 1 collar belt and 1 waist belt. Squaresoft would be proud. LOL.

I will be hand-stitching these on while I'm away from my machine for the next few days, and possibly doing some small touch-ups on Ramona's various accessories.

Jacket Progress!

Threw together the basics of the jacket tonight. All the insides are french-seamed so I don't have to add a lining to the jacket- I forsee myself boiling in this outfit enough as it is, I don't need an extra layer of fabric making it worse! Also, I'm totally skint, and I already blew my budget on the fabric for this jacket. But I wanted it to actually look like denim, and not some crappy light blue cotton (which I neaaaarly went for at first).

In this photo, I was yet to shorten the collar, shorten the bottom of the jacket, shorten and take in the sleeves, and hem the edges of everything. I did that on 02/08/2010.

I broke my sewing machine. AGAIN.

I broke my sewing machine while working on Ramona&#039;s bag today. :S Four layers of pleather + sewing machine = needle refusing to pick up the bobbin thread anymore. I have NO idea how I&#039;m going to finish this bag now. I&#039;m going to take my machine in on Monday because it&#039;s still under warranty, and I might have to finish the bag by hand-cranking it through my other machine :S

This is really bad timing (badumpsh) though because I&#039;m starting a commission that&#039;s due for AmeCon on Monday or Tuesday, and I NEED a zig-zag stitch for it. @__@ My back-up machine can only do straight stitches!! (because it&#039;s THAT old)

Goddamn I love eBay

Most of the bits that I've ordered off at ebay had come at this point, so I did a quick test shot to see how it worked together.
