Infestor Plush

I made an Infestor plush for Hunter's birthday! I love the Star Craft Carbot videos so I thought it would be a fun thing to make. It was annoying having to make a pattern from only what I could see in the videos. So there was a lot of trial and error but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I would like to make another and fix some of the things I didn't like about the first one but I don't have time to do it before I leave.

I have been very busy with my Minecraft pigs. I am very thankful for the business but it has made me very tired of sewing after have to make the same thing 5 times.
We also went and got Hunter a tattoo and sushi for his birthday!

Sebastian Doll

I finally was able to make something cosplay instead of Etsy this week. This is my Sebastian Michaelis doll for my Grell cosplay. Pretty happy with how he turned out and can't wait to put the whole outfit together in August!

I also finally did a cake. It was very last minute and FAR from my best work but I think it turned out ok for spending a couple hours to make the whole thing. I will have to redeem myself next year! I just don't have time at the moment to work my decorating magic :( Oh well, it tasted great and my mom liked it so that's all that matters!

 Chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, and chocolate butterflies
I made something new to add to my shop from a request. Hope it sells :) I will also be adding a couple more things that people have requested.
 Tofu Kitty :3

I want to try to make a little bit more money before I leave. Kind of hard to make much in a couple months but I have gotten a lot done. I also bought a lot of cosplay/etsy fabric for very cheap! I love you coupons ^_^ Hopefully I'll have a couple more cosplay things to post before I have to leave. It's coming up fast! Only have about 3 weeks left before back to Germany.

Horns and Hair

 I am finally meeting with my friends this weekend to continue our Dungeons and Dragons game we started. I mean, it never ends pretty much but we have only been able to play twice in a year so we're all very excited! I am a Tiefling (as I said in my previous post) hunter. We updated my character a bit so now I have this awesome Displacer Beast pet and some new skills ^_^
 I wanted to dress up so I made some horns from Model Magic. Everyone keeps raving about it so I thought I'd give it a try. I am very happy with the results. Not too bad for my first time making horns or even working with MM. The base is just a bunch of tinfoil and then I molded the MM around it. I then used a little metal walnut sheller to carve all the details (we cosplayers are very resourceful!). I allowed them to dry all night and they seem completely done this morning. They never get hard like polymer clay but they are pretty sturdy. Another awesome thing about this stuff is it's super light so even though these horns are pretty big they don't feel heavy or flop around. I poked holes in them this morning and threaded leather cord through it. I LOVE how it looks with my hair. So happy with them. I'm going to look badass tonight lol

For my hair I had to bleach it once on my own then the hair dresser bleached it, put toner on it, and cut it. Then my mom and I dyed it red but it didn't take that much the first time so I re-dyed it last night and left it on for 3-4 hours and now it's prefect. I hope it stays this color at least for a month because this is exactly what I was going for. My lovely Grell hair :3

 I have finished all my Etsy orders so far and so I can start working on cosplay now. I think I will make my Bassy doll for my Grell cosplay next. I need to figure out a starting point for my other cosplays. I need to make a body suit for Maya from Borderlands, the metal/LED glove for Ezreal from League of Legends, my steampunk dress, and Hunter's Zed from Borderlands cosplay. So I just need to pick one and start.
 I will take some more full body pictures when I have someone to help me and then I'll take some pictures of our D&D awesomeness tonight!
