Good & Evil Queen

As you know I made two Fortuny Delphos dresses in gold and purple. Since they are very fancy and have a nice light and dark contrast, I always had to think about two contrary queens. So for the more fantastic styling I bought Ravenna's crown (Snow White and the Huntsman) for the purple Delphis dress, [...]

Elven Crown made from Wire & Fimo Leather

I always had an idea for a more fantastic styling for the Fortuny Delphos dresses. Like a queen in a fairytale. Originally I only made the golden Delphos dress and bought Ravenna's crown (Snow White and the Huntsman) for it. But then I did the purple Delphos dress and it obviously was the evil queen, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
