Hello all; soon I will be 19 and It is frankly scaring the pants off me; I don't know why; Another year; another number, another birthday..... But this year is odd; due to the fact I cant think of anything that I would actually want as a birthday present... But Art gifts from you guys would make me most happy...
I am starting Tafe in early July studding a diploma of Screen and media. I must say, I am both relived and slightly nervous about doing so. Part of me loves to meet new people and make new things, but most of me says to be very careful around people.
Speaking of making new things; I am in the middle of making my first ever cosplay costume; SSJ4 Goku from Dragonball GT. I have bought all the materials; including thread and the shoes. I have made the "Mock Up" Jacket with calico material and have hand stitched it ready for the final fitting check. After which time; I will be hand sewing the Faux Fur pieces together to form most of the coat. For the chest I have traced an exact design of Gokus (references from the anime screenshots) and will be using a skin colored satin that will be eventually be stuffed and sewn together with the fur with added features of lines and such. The pants will be the easy parts to do as I do not need a mock up for it. Im going to add the tail (which will be hand sew and posable hopefully) via elastic in the pant's belt also. The wrist cuffs and anklets will be satin also and will be straight forward to do.
I will be sculpting my own wig also; Yellow/gold contact lenses and red face paint/Make up will be the last things to do.
I will hopefully get it all completed so that I may attend the 2014 Brisbane Supernova in November. I also will be posting up W.I.P's and such to show you all.
