New Photos

The past couple of months, I’ve been getting photos of cosplays that are missing them. First up, is my Punk Hazard Tashigi cosplay! I debuted it at A-kon last year in June, but I didn’t get a photoshoot done at that time. I had one done at Ikkicon in December instead! (See full set.)

I also realized that even though I made my Phi (Zero Escape) cosplay in 2015, I never got proper photos of the full costume. For this one, I just used my mini studio at home. (See full set.)

And the last one is more of my Yuri (Yuri on Ice) cosplay. I ordered this Makkachin tissue case last year, and I kept forgetting to get a photo with it. (See full set.)

That’s it for now! I have a couple ideas for next cosplays, but I haven’t quite planned them out yet. Hopefully soon!

Portal 2 boots

It’s been a few years since I made my Portal costume for Halloween, and I decided to re-visit it this year! Back then, I made the jumpsuit and then quickly made long fall blades out of foam. Since then, I’ve been wanting to go back and either re-make the Portal 1 blades or make the Portal 2 long fall boots. I decided on the Portal 2 version this year!

Note: Though I’m going to show how I made them in this entry, I’ll say that if I ever wore them again, I’d probably redo the whole thing. I only gave myself a few days to make these, so they were rushed, and the blades didn’t work out as I would have liked. I have notes at the end on the changes I’d like to make for next time.

To start, I made boot covers using stretch vinyl for the base boot part. I actually used the same base pattern from my Tashigi boot covers and altered them for Chell. I used a stronger fabric for the bottom this time, which is pleather, and then I stuck a shoe grip to it.

Punk Hazard Tashigi – finished

Hurray! I finished my Punk Hazard Tashigi cosplay!

In this entry, I’ll go over all the leftover parts, which are the gloves, pants, wig, and boots. I’ll start with the easy ones first, which are the pants and gloves. Both are bought and then altered. On the pants, I just cut and hemmed a pair of jeans. On the gloves, I added the white hem by hand sewing some cotton jersey at the end.
