Custom Esty commission, shiny sylveon
I did in fact find some WIP pics, really what you want to do is buy something cheap at the thrift store that is sorta like what you want and dismantle it, then use that as the base for your pattern.
Often ill cut up an old undershirt and adjust as needed to make things.
While I don’t know which one you tried, Im glad you liked it :)
I made it from scratch, apart from the boots, everything on that costume is from scratch, even the pokeball and hat.
While I didn’t post a tutorial for the jacket specifically, the how-to and sewing tags on my blog have relevant things in them, including the bag and hat, if you have any specific questions about what I did to make the jacket Id be happy to answer :)
- Quartered Red Potatoes
- 3 LB Beef Roast
- Vegetable Stock
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Garlic Salt, Pepper
- Cube all the veggies
- Seer the beef roast in a pan on all sides
- Throw everything into the crockpot
- Put in veggie stock, then pour sauce on meat
- Add Salt & Pepper
- Cook on low for 12 hours
Makes enough for about 5 - 6 meals, I saved the leftover juice in a separate container to use as stock for soup later this week :)
- 3 Cans of Tuna
- 1 Egg
- Bread crumbs
- Jalapenos (Optional! I had some leftover from jambalaya)
- Drain the tuna and mince with a fork, add the egg, diced veggies, and bread crumbs
- Form/Mix in to patties with your bare hands
- Oil up the pan, drizzle oil on the patties
- Put heat on medium-high, sear both sides, then turn down to medium to cook thouroughly
- Will be done in ~10-12 minutes, flip every 3-4
- Pair with a side and enjoy :3
Can substitute salmon or any fish really, this is incredibly cheap and easy to do overall ;)
I got a couple requests asking how I made the hat for the Calem costume so here it is. Its incredibly simple to do as long as your sewing machine can punch through two layers of packing cardboard you’ll be just fine.
The whole thing is a half cylinder I cut to fit my head, made with medium-weight denim and some light interfacing. The brim is two pieces of packing cardboard wedged inside a denim sleeve.
I had to hand stitch the brim on, but other than that everything was done on my regular machine, didn’t even need the serger :)
Hi! i remembered i you mentioning using polyfil stuffing, and double sided interfacing for my Courtney cosplay,
What exactly are these? Just wondering because i have never heard of those before. thanks for helping me!
Polyfil is the stuffing that most often goes inside plushies, its pretty cheap and you can find it at any fabric store
Interfacing is a stiff fabric you sew into garments to make things stand up or take certain shapes, it comes in a variety of stiffnesses and is either sew-in, fusible, or double sided.
Sew-in you just cut out a piece the same size as your fabric, and put it in with the seam on the wrong side.
Single sided has one size with a heat activated glue on it, you iron it in and it will stick.
Double sided has heat activated glue on both sides, it looks and feels like wax paper, you iron it on, let it cool, then peel the wax paper side off, and then reheat to bond it to whatever you wanted it to glue to. This lets you put on logos or symbols to a costume without stitches or screen printing.
There’s a good tutorial here
Hope that helps!
Kinda-Sorta Jambalaya - I end up putting a lot of extra stuff in it like my Chili, so while someone from Louisana might shake their head, its still pretty tasty.
- Boxed Jambalaya mix…I accidentally grabbed a red beans & rice mix, still turned out good
- Pre-Cooked Sausage
- Cut up / Dice everything and throw it into a large sauce pan with the mixes
- Put in 6 cups of water
- Heat on high until it boils then scale the heat back to a nice simmer
- Stir every 4 - 6 minutes, keep on until the water has mostly boiled off (~30-35 minutes)
- Serve, two boxes makes enough for ~6-7 meals
You can also add in other things such as potatoes, shrimp, or other varieties of peppers.
