Cosplay Conspiracy

I first got into costuming years ago with an interest in period garb. It has only been in the past few years that I've actually taken to, and been able to afford, cosplaying on a regular basis.
Other than that, I have two children cats: Kitty Babe and Custard, who are both spoiled brats- but I love them to death anyway. I love chocolate, herbals teas, and fruit. I do not love phone calls or small talk, but I'll talk your ear off when you hit on something I care about.
And if you're in Arizona, we should do photos some time!

Have I mentioned how awesome my mother is? My sister and I just made her watch Frozen, and when it was over she totally told me to cosplay Elsa. <3

Hi there! I stumbled across your blog while looking for Phxcc pics that were taken of me and a Sherlock I met there, and was like booyah, another Sherlockian cosplayer in AZ! I just haven't seen too many here; the damn heat might have something to do with that though. XD You make a great Sherlock, and your coat looks really awesome so far. Also! If you're ever in the market for a John Watson, let me know! He's one of my cosplays and I'm over in the west valley! :D

Wow, hi! I’m so glad to meet another Sherlockian cosplay in Arizona! You’re right about the heat! Photos too are hard, our deseret looks nothing like London. ^^;;
Thank you! I’m hoping to have it done soon! We should totally meet up for photos sometime, I haven’t met anyone who’d cosplay John and that’s dreadfully boring.

Trolling through the internets and found another Loki photo! >D

This time with my sister as Lucy Heartfilia from “Fairy Tail”. The sketch had potential, but there weren’t enough anime fans around to actually understand why it was funny… (Not that I can talk, I’ve never seen Fairy Tail either.)

I went to make tea yesterday, and reached in to grab what I thought was orange spice, but in actuality was peach.

In trolling the webs today for more PHXCC photos, I searched for several variants of “Phoenix Comicon” and “Loki” together- and had the Goblin King showing up in the results.

I have about thirty bits of owl paraphernalia around my living room and kitchen (my name is Athena, you can’t honestly expect me to not have owls around my house), the glittery barn owl that sits on my cupboard made its presence known earlier this morning.

All in all, I think something is trying to get me to pull Sarah’s ballgown out of storage.

Working on Sherlock’s coat. I haven’t designed the pattern for the back belt, so I can’t attach it to the front just yet. Before that I am trying to decide if the pleats are the right width. What do you think?

Please, please, tell me where did you find the fabric, and the pattern !!

I’m really sorry, but I’m afraid my answers might not be too helpful…

The fabric came from a local shop here in Phoenix. It was actually something like a miniature black and white houndstooth pattern, and I dyed it until I got the white to an acceptable shade of grey.

And the pattern I made myself. I can tell you that it was based on a normal coat pattern, I made a mock-up and added godets to it: two smaller ones for the sides, and one large for the center. I then ironed the whole things flat, and used the mock-up as a pattern to cut the back out so it wouldn’t have the godet seams.

Not much to show, but I did get the back belt made before work today. Just need to figure out how to make button holes with my new machine.

More with the sheet, because I just love how they came out.

And maybe I’ll get some legitimate photos sometime in the near future.

Reblogging these because I like them that much.

YES.
Truer words have never been spoken.

I feel like posting some of my other cosplays.

The last three of these photos were taken by tarasque-productions.

  • Wife: (to her husband) Go bag our stuff.
  • Husband: Sorry, what?
  • Wife: You, you're bagging.
  • Husband: Oh, I'm bagging? Baggin'? Bilbo Baggins? Well, all right. (Proceeds to bag purchases)
  • Me: Oh my gosh, thank you. You just made my whole day.

Dyeing the wool for my Sherlock coat for the third time, because I have never begged for mercy in my life will never admit defeat.

Aha, dyeing fabric is always an adventure. You can do it! :D
Isn’t that the truth?! I’ve been dyeing cloth since I was eight and I still get all nail-biting about it: “What if it’s too dark? Too light? What if the colors don’t blend?” etc. It’s not as exact an science as people would think!
Thank you for the vote of confidence! I’ll show that fabric who’s boss. >3

Because, once in a while, I don’t take my own pictures
