Dragon*Con 2015: Crochet Cosplay WIP - Week 2-ish
UPDATE 2/5/23: This was my magnum opus of cosplay. I think I peaked here. After this my entire life was downhill. Entire. Life.
I didn't make any huge strides in progress this week. I did finish up the skirt and got the main part of the boob bow out of the way.
The Boob Bow
The boob bow is a little smaller than the butt bow and it's going to have a purple heart as the middle. Here are some pictures I took of the boob bow as I worked on it, so you can see better what I did to make it (nevermind that some of these pictures look like some sort of ad for Chapstick!). I'm not using a pattern aside from jotting down the number of stitches and number of rows I used, etc. My scribbled notes are just to get things symmetrical. The colorwork has all been pretty much freeform and sizing has been trial and error.
I work from messy sketches. Here are some sketches of the coloration on the boob bow and also the Silence Glaive.
The Great Silence Glaive Do-Over
After some serious thought, I've decided to take some liberties with the gloves. Nothing insane, but I'll just be making them fingerless mitts instead of gloves. They should be pretty basic and I might get them out of the way before I start the bodice. I really hate not having use of my hands and every cosplay I've ever done has involved gloves, except the Sarah Palin I did back in the day.
