Progress Journals

What do we love? Costumes! But what do we love even more? Seeing people making them! Here are the most recent progress updates from those working away on their costumes.



Been working on remaking my prop bombs for my link cosplay, also working on a DIY video of how to make them.

Improvements made


Old costume, but made some improvements. Found some yellow contacts with my prescription, given the wig a well needed haircut and repainted the forehead. Repainting the shoes, and bought some better make up and a new severed hand prop.

Nearly done


Last parts being added and I am making a new tie

Automail Progress: Halfway There


Finally, three days before the convention, I have all of the base pieces constructed and ready for priming and painting. The shoulder piece gave me the most hassle as shaping and patterning it to fit my body shape was a pain. As I want to wear the coat and show the symbol on the back, I have attached the edge of the coat to the back of the shoulder armour and I really like the look of it, even if this is absolutely not how a prosthetic limb would work lol

Finishing sewing


Adding the last bits to the dress~ adding g a train to the back and something around the waist before I start adding gems and working on the jewellery~

Painting Painting

Time to panic over Asirpa while this dries then.
