Work in Progress

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, [...]

Authentic late medieval dress and undergarment

Last summer I got an introduction to (more or less) authentic medieval tailoring. And during the christmas holidays I had some time to start the first project: A simple late medieval (late 14th century) dress and undergarment. I have been mostly ill the last weeks (two colds in a row...) so it all took quite some [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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: 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 [...]

WIP: The embroidery is finished

It took some time (way too long...), but the embroidery inspired by Game of Thrones is finished. And I already attached it to the elven wedding gown. I also used shades of gold for the embroidery. The green thread is slightly yellow for example and the main motives are made from gold thread completely. [...]

WIP: Embroidered elven wedding gown

I already wrote that I've some more projects planned with Silver Wolfie aka Joanna (here is her Facebook page). And this time we chose an elven wedding as theme. Since only creating a new pattern with bell sleeves and a free back for the gown is waaaay too easy, I decided to try something new [...]
