It's WIP Wednesday! Some Quick DragonCon Cosplay Updates
UPDATE 2/6/23: Corrected some weird formatting. I don't feel like I need to bulk up these posts. These were all good posts.
Crochet Sailor Saturn
I picked out a pattern that I'll be modifying in order to make my gloves. Right hurr. It's free. I'll have to do some tweaking in order to do the colorwork and then do the purple piping. If anyone wants to hassle me for choosing to do fingerless gloves then go ahead - you will not be able to stop me!
Yesterday I painted the hat. Maybe this was once a suede hat? Or leather? I don't know much about things made from dead animals. I know it was once upon a time a rad vintage hat from the 70s that some creature died for, but the lining had been ripped out and the label is too worn to read. It was soft, so does that make it suede?
Whatever. Now it's Nisha's hat.
My New Year's resolution was to paint more. Does painting a hat count?
Nisha's boots are going to be a little more daunting than I expected after closer inspection. It also turned out that I didn't have any fabric suitable for making her belt, so I order a cheap-shit canvas belt. I'm unsure how I'm going to do the buckle now as well. She also has a lot of little buckles on her thighs, which I'm pretty sure I'm going to paint on. I'm not sure about the ones are her wrist. There's a lot of "not sure" happening with this now. I'm still going to make it happen, don't worry.
I'm also working on making boatloads of hats for the mighty hat season of the northern hemisphere and, of course, some hats for a hat give away in September-ish.
