I just had a lovely weekend, where I've been both very social (sounds like I'm always forever alone) and productive. :D
A friend of me and Nadia visit us because she wanted some help with some boots (that she've made wonderfully!<3) so we had planned a cosplay/horror-weekend.
Friday, me and my LovemustacheBuddy drove around to buy some fabrics. Traveling is a bitch and it takes such a long time, so we borrowed my parents car. (Otherwise we couldn't make it home before Kiba arrived to visit Kami... we barely did, even though we was driving XD)
I found some fabric for both Cutter and Isabela.
I've been looking everywhere for the fabric that I wanted for Cutters pants and I found the perfect fabric.......... BUT they didn't have the among that I needed so I had to buy two tones lighter since it was the closest color I could find... But now that I've been working with it, I'm really starting to hate the color.. It's WAY to light!!
BUT I can't effort to buy new fabrics, so it just have to work as color is........ Damn!
|Fabric for pants, shirt and shoes. |
Note: I see Cutters pants more brown than yellow and that is the base of my choices of my fabrics. FYI
I've been working on Cutters shoes, and I managed to finish them. They didn't turn out as I had hoped for, but it's my very first shoes that I had to make from scratch, and considering how awfully bad I am at making shoes, they look okay. :)
|I know I know.... They don't look like the shoes from the comic, but they are useful!|
I need to attach the strips of one side of the pants, sew in a zipper and figure out how to attach his loincloth and the "rope" that holds the loincloth.
I had to find a pattern that I could change without to much trouble, since I'm a retard when I use pattern. XD
I just wanted to show you how colorful I made the pattern using tape with hearts.<3
|Totally useless information, I knowz.|
Since it's more or less a simple cosplay, I took the opportunity make some details on my own, to make it look more handmade, since they obviously don't have sewing machines. :D
|And it took a long time. >__>; Long than expected. Thanks to Kiba for helping and Kami for offering help. XD|
Anyways; this is how the pants looks like for now:
I need to loose some weight before I use this cosplay in public. >__> My legs are a bit TOO big for wearing pants like that... XD;
I had a lovely weekend with some good company! <3
Even though I had been able to make so much (I think that we have been sewing for like 12 hours if you put the time together from Saturday and Sunday) I even had time to take some pictures of my hotstuff LoveMustacheBuddy and her beautiful girlfriend. :3
it was VERY cold so they where freezing like hell.. and the weather couldn't decide if it wanted to rain, snow or a sun shining.. Really frustrating, but we manged to get some good photos, and I can't wait till summer where they will wear it again for a new shoot. :D

That's it for now! I'm sorry for spelling and grammar mistakes.. I'm very tired! XD;
I hope you all had a super weekend! :D
