New photos

Sorry for the lack in updates! I actually haven’t been working on anything new lately because I’ve been focusing on cosplay photography instead. I spent January post processing photos from Ikkicon, and I’m about to do another cosplay photoshoot too.

This means new photos of my own cosplays as well! I have a wireless release for my DSLR, so I’m able to trigger it remotely and basically take selfies XD;;

First, I did a Haku shoot for Christmas. It has 3 parts, so click here for the full image.


Then I did a black and white photo of my Knives Chau costume as part of my Project 52.


I do plan on starting a new cosplay project very soon. Hopefully I’ll have some progress photos up in March!

No Face, part 2

With the base for the head done (in part 1), I was able to measure how big the mask should be. I sketched it out on some pattern paper.


I decided to make the mask with fabric because it’d be light and easy to attach. I started with white Kona cotton and cut out an oval. It’s interfaced in the back with light interfacing, then I cut out a hole at the bottom. The details on top are more fabric that’s been attached with iron-on adhesive.


I didn’t want the stitches to show on the mask, so I made another one to go behind. I added batting to this one to make it puff out a bit, and this is also where I sewed the shear black fabric. I used 4 layers of the black fabric so that it looked black but was still see through.

No Face, part 1

I finished No Face a couple months ago… but I’m just now getting around to writing about it XD;; This will be in a couple parts since I have many photos. Making the base for the mask took the longest!

My friend Jack would be wearing No Face, and I wanted to make sure the costume was taller than his actual height. I decided that the part that looks like a mouth on No Face’s mask would be where Jack’s eyes were.
