Well, I see some fellow deviants asking for points, and I figure, I'll post it and see what happens. I'm new to this point thing, so hopefully I'll figure it out eventually. The goal is the minimum amount for a subscription thing.

Sailor Mercury Pranking Everyone by craftysorceress
Sailor Mercury Pranking Everyone
Remember when Ami trolled the computer club into printing some song lyrics for her and pass it off like engineering research papers?

-Happy April Fools Day!

But really, no joke, it's in Sailor Moon Stars episode 174 overall. Check it.
Lumpy Space Princess Plush Pillow by craftysorceress
Lumpy Space Princess Plush Pillow
Oh my glob!

Here's some Adventure Time love for you all. LSP can act as a plushie and as a pillow to keep your hands warm. I used the following tutorial as a guide:…

I deviated by adding an extra pocket in the back and changing the order of putting in the arms. I cut the hole first, the nattached top & bottom arm parts to the body, and then, while inside out, I stitched top and bottom parts of each arm together. That way, right-side out, I could stuff both the arms and the body, and I machine stitched the entire time.

The details like the mouth and the satin star are all appliqued in.
Pokemon ORAS May and Steven Stone by craftysorceress
Pokemon ORAS May and Steven Stone
Made by: Me
Worn: PAX East 2015
Photographer: Martin Wong Photography at PAX East's Cospitality Lounge

These cosplay were made with a few pre-bought stuff(the modern shorts, the suit and button-down shirt), but a ton of custom details. The vest was all drafted from a block, with a contoured center back seam, all made of garbadine. The shirts were also made with a stretchy polyester, both double layered since I was going to wear this at Boston in the winter.

These components were finished with what is called the "theater" technique of sewing vests (with the shirts sewn like a vest), where you finish all seams with very little topstitching and hand stitching. It's an interesting technique to make vests very fast, and still be adjustable to multiple people. (the hint is that the 2nd to last seams are side and shoulder seams)

Next, I want to try altering the suit a bit, with the most challenging alteration being shortening the jacket to make it look more modern. But fortunately, I can do those alterations with no mad rush. (I altered/improved/brand-new made constructed 5 costumes in the span of 2 months and I don't want to do that again!)
Harry Potter Gryffindor bag Purse by craftysorceress
Harry Potter Gryffindor bag Purse
For your favorite Gryffindor wizard! Sewn, drafted and made out of canvas to give it the school feel, this mini messenger bag was given as a gift to hold phones, pencils, a small notebook, and other essentials.

I used this as a guide, though I used less fabric than recommended and drafted a few more things to it.…

I deviated by adding more pockets in the front, an added pocket in the back, and of course the iron-on logo.

I'm tempted  to make a messenger-bag-pattern generator now. If you have any questions on how I made it, lemme know!

Artist | Student | Artisan Crafts
United States
I'm a jack-of-all trades artisan artist, as a costumer, cosplayer, plushie-maker, and jewelery maker. My art is in part, inspired by video games, anime, among others.

My goal for making a DeviantArt account is to:
  • have a venue for my artistic output
  • network with other artists
  • encourage others to craft
  • By the way, my DA profile photo was taken by the talented photographer Kayneth Fotografisch Werke (…) so go check them out!

1st Place at Costume Contest!

Sun Feb 8, 2015, 5:35 PM

After months and months of work, I not only completed my Eren Jeager/Mikasa Ackerman cosplay from Attack on Titan, but also they won 1st place in Star City Anime's costume contest!

I love competing in contests because I get to be surrounded by people who love their costumes and love to share with me how they got it and made them. So many talented and wonderful people to learn from. What's even better is that this con is local to me, so I hope to collaborate with them in the future.

Star City Anime is a lovely anime con comfortable enough so you get to see people more than once, and be able to chat with them. Their staff was super friendly, and while the artist alley was a tad small (artists, get in on this!) it was pretty good for a first-time con here.

If you saw me at Star City Anime, lemme know! I would love to connect with you! I was:

  • Saturday: Mikasa Ackerman with 3DMG from Attack on Titan (and if you find Eren photos, please let me know too!)
  • Sunday: Sasha Braus with Scouting cloak and potato (I have a twinny too, so I'm trying to find photos of her too! <3)
Here's a preview photo:

It was so cool ganging out with you too! I plan to go to Kinyoobicon, and I dunno if Japan Expo is possible for me. But, after meeting you all, I was so motivated and re-inspired to go do an Attack on Titan cosplay. So thanks for the encouragement! :D

I haven't done much on here in a while too. I only do it in spurts, but I should do more. @_@ Are you on the tumblrs/CosComs? I am less active on there, but I am trying for months to get my art portfolio up, so if you have one of those, I totally wanna follow up with you on there too!
