Sweet Pea
Sucker Punch

Cosplayer: Athora.x

Variant: Warrior Outfit

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

23rd May 2012: Weapons assembled :) 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

22nd May 2012: SWOOOOOOOORD 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

19th May 2012: Styled a wig. 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.

18th May 2012: BRAAAAAAAAA that's right. with the little...thing in the middle. i dunno what it is. ;D

23rd March 2012: Scabbard cardboard, glue, faux leather, paint, foam..... staples ;D

23rd March 2012: Boots 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

4th February 2012: Roasry 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

14th January 2012: Finished Holster/Harness and my doggy :3

meh, sorry for the naff quality photo D:

14th January 2012: Holster take 2! 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.

11th December 2011: Pauldron sweet pea pauldron bought from Terry English.

20th October 2011: everything so far ^^ it's getting sooooo close to completion *.* i can't wait!

20th October 2011: lining 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!

15th October 2011: Eyelets ^^ eyelets! ^^ surprisingly quite easy to do! thanks to AlienQueen for showing me how to do them <3 love you!!

3rd October 2011: eyelets and laces loool LAWL! drew in some eyelets and laces on paint to see how it looked xD I'm itching to do them already!! agh!

3rd October 2011: With the holster 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

2nd October 2011: Nearly finished coat! 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.

21st September 2011: Lining 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!! ;)

19th September 2011: Front sewn :) 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!

19th September 2011: Jacket Tacked :) jacket all tacked! I'll save doing the edges till the very end, as then i can sewi in the lining ;D

10th September 2011: Coat pattern finished 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.

6th September 2011: Holster 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

8th August 2011: mock-up 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&#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 ~

5th August 2011: so far... BAH my fingers are killing.

5th August 2011: finally finished! 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 :)

5th August 2011: foam 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)

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-LAWL1437-/160642124171?pt=UK_Crafts_Leathercraft_LE&hash=item256704498b

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?
