Mini top hats & fascinators for Guggamusik d’Hardar Schlösslefeagar

It has been quiet for a while on the website. But I haven't been idle in the meantime. For example I made twelve mini top hats and seven fascinators for the Guggamusik d'Hardar Schlösslefeagar (https://www.schloesslefeagar.com/). The Hardar Schlösslefeagar is a carnival music club (in case you don't know what Guggamusik is ;) ) and they [...]

Hufflepuff Coat

I got another nice request. The daughter of a friend from the fencing club wanted a Hogwarts coat in the Hufflepuff colours for her birthday. Everything had to be done very fast, since her birthday was around the corner and the coat was supposed to be a surprise. So I got one of her summer [...]

Tiny Top Hat

A tiny update for a tiny top hat. My small mini to hats and the other small hats are actually rather big - about a third of the full-sized hats. Most fascinator hats you can buy are actually smaller and on request I build one like that as well. The hat is again half the [...]

The Fourth Doctor’s Victorian Shirt – Part 2

I started to tailor some men's clothing and I was inspired by Doctor Who Classic. As a first project I chose the Fourth Doctor's (Tom Baker) Victorian shirt with the cutout collar. In Part 1 I wrote about my research and here I will describe my construction method and show you the results. Construction The [...]

The Fourth Doctor’s Victorian Shirt – Part 1

Some time ago I started to watch the old Doctor Who Classic series. The Doctor always had a fascinating fashion sense. And then I meet the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker, with the long scarf ;)) for the first time. He wears a mixture of Victorian and Steampunk clothes and they are even suitable for everyday [...]

Lady Loki’s Costume

Today there's only a short update. Right now I am getting a driving licence for motocycles and suddenly all evenings are gone for classes. There's only little time left for sewing or writing. And then there are all the birthdays in my family at once (I'm exagerrating only slightly). ;) But soon all of that [...]

WIP: Lady Loki’s Diadem

Some time ago I posted the dress for the Lady Loki cosplay. This weekend I made the diadem. After I tried mould powder and resin for Artemisia's armour, Loki's headdress was a good opportunity to try another new material. In theater and cosplay thermoplastic materials are used for example for armour, crowns or jewellry. Basically [...]

Leah’s dress

The date for moving to a new apartment is getting closer. I already packed the first boxes. But that doesn't stop me from continuing to sew. Ok, well maybe a little... But Leah's dress for the Loki and Leah cospay is ready. I don't really like to copy cosplays exactly. It is a bit unsatisfactory [...]

Artemisia’s armour with top and skirt

Today and yesterday I have been on a sword fighting seminar (which was really great), this is why it took some time, but now Artemisia's armour is finished. Last time I wrote about the breast armour and sword belt (made from fake leather) and about the golden spikes (made from mould powder and resin). Meanwhile [...]

Lady Loki’s dress

Right now everyone seems to think that it would be great to order something from me RIGHT NOW. You know, shortly before I am moving to a new apartment. ;) But not that I'm complaining. I just need a lot longer for the unpaid projects. For example the Loki & Leah and the Artemisia costumes. [...]

WIP: Spikes for Artemisia

Onward with Artemisia's armour. Mostly it consists of spikes and claws. But we all know that a proper villain can't have to many spikes for decoration. I looked for materials in our handicraft store. Actually Fimo (a kind of thermoplastic clay) would have been the best choice since it's rather flexible when dried. But no one [...]

WIP: Artemisia’s Armour

Artemisia in 300: Rise of an Empire Additionally to the Loki & Leah cosplay I'm also working on Artemisia's armour. This lovely lady was portrayed by Eva Green in the movie 300: Rise of an Empire. And everything about her was just so delightfully evil. ;) Actually I wanted this to be a [...]

WIP: Loki and Leah Cosplay

Loki and Leah (Earth-616) Lady Loki (Earth-616) Joanna persuaded me to to another cosplay outfit. This time Marvel Comic's Loki and Leah. But since I like Lady Loki a lot better, there will be a Loki in a classical gothic look and Leah with a medieval look. Right now I'm working [...]

Embroidery: By hand or machine

Recently I had a discussion why I went through all the trouble of embroidering my elven wedding gown by hand. A machine could do that just as well. And I have to admit I couldn't give a convincing answer at the time. Simply because I never saw a comparable work done with an embroidery machine.

Embroidered collar & new server

Right now I'm in the process of moving the website to a new and above all faster server. So only a short update (and until tomorrow another URL, so don't be surprised). The Khaleesi/Daenerys Targaryen cosplay inspired by Game of Thrones is already with my model for a photo shooting. But shortly before I sent [...]

Complete Khaleesi Cosplay

This time just a short update. I already posted the individual pieces of the cosplay for Daenerys Targaryen / Khaleesi from Game of Thrones. Now all of it together. Like this I sent it to Silver Wolfie / Joanna last week. There will be beautiful pictures soon. :)

WIP: Armour for Khaleesi

I'm still working on the cosplay for Daenery Targaryen resp. Khaleesi. Since she is riding into war quite often, I think she should have some armour. At least my version or armour. I try to avoid real leather whenever possible. Here I found some nice fake suede in two shades of brown. I reinforced it [...]

WIP: Classic Khaleesi dress

Since I finished the elven wedding gown, I was able to start with a new project. This time not only the embroidery is inspired by Game of Thrones, but I am sewing an appropriate cosplay outfit. The dress is one of the classical designs Daenerys Targaryen is wearing frequently in different versions. The dress is [...]

Yennefer’s dress & Steampunk pirate

This is what I've been working on the last weeks. The black one is a cosplay costume for Yennefer of Vengerberg from the Witcher books by Andrzej Sapkowski. It consists of a skirt and blouse and since she's mostly shown in wintery scenery there's also a cape, a corsage with a short train [...]
