FlyingMammal
Overview

I've always loved costumes, I had a big dressing up box when I was little and my mum always sewing me (or my siblings) costumes. I spent a lot of time running around thinking I was random characters from cartoons or Disney movies. Oh and Power Rangers.

Over the years I picked up on my mum sewing, it wasn't until my teens that I really got into making things though. I used to make small items like bags, or attach things to clothes. Then when I was 15ish I began making my own clothes. This then went into me making my costumes.

In 2005 my good friend Morgan realised I loved costumes (/fantasy in reality) and told me I should come and cosplay with him at Expo...
Sadly due to chronic illness and other health issues I'm unable to go to a lot of Expos/Cons. So most of my cosplay is done at get togethers, at private shoots or around the house [I do a lot of that].




I hope I get to do all I would like to with 'cosplay'..

FlyingMammal - Ileum - 22nd September 2018

Re starting

A few years back before we moved. I made some fabric intestines, I liked them but only had a small bit of fabric. I also made a dress which I think I cut up for another costume. Today i hunted it all out. The dress has gone. The intestines i still love the idea of and as for the cheap craft masks I was going to use as a base... Well... I have no idea when I did this but.. turns out I made the whole mask. I am trying to tidy it up but up close it really isn't the best of work. Might be ok once attached to my face and a ton of hair covering bits. Might decide to re make it.

Also started the body mask( not sure what to call it) Either way i need another piece of foam. So its on hold a few more days.


Later that evening, I put some of the foam together, and I didn't like the half body form so I am just going for a brest piece. Once I have some belts I may add in some more panels. This saves buying more foam for now.
