Last Saturday was finally the day of the photoshoot with Dahlia Fortescue. I wanted to make the stockings better but I had no time at all and I could not procatinate anymore with this costume, It's been almost 6 months since my last photoshoot. But things have changed this year and I have no free time at all to sew and sculpt and bla blahs.
ANYWAY, as Dahlia and I lack of free time to edit the photos, specially, remove my tattoos, which has been a pain in the butty so far. Here is a very very very little preview of my Injustice: Gods among us Harley Quinn version, it's an unedited photo, but I like the way my contacts look lol.

I'd like to thank Barbara Rivas and Stephan Trancy, for helping us !

Hope to have the photos finished soon.

I'm sick of having this costume on my bedroom unfinished, I want to get this through xD I really don't have time to sew but today instead of preparing an exam, y decided to make the stockings.
My camera is broken so I have only this crappy cel photo, you can't see the diamonds on them very much :/ and if someone could't see my pasts journals, where i posted the boots and bla bla, here is the photo of the boots and the guns again. Also, I'm not wearing the wig, make up, and mask. Just need to finish the gloves, leg holster and i'm finally done with this. Thank god.

Forgive me for my face, it's Friday and i'm really tired D:

Finally, the wait is over. Last week I got my Babydoll Premium Format from Sideshow Collectibles ( exclusive ver. ) It's been like a year since I preordered her.
She's beautiful and has amazing details. Welcome to the family :D
On the other hand, exams are coming. So, f****. I realised it's been almost 6 months since I showed a costume u_u' I have to make photos with the Alice costume I fixed, the Ariel and Harley Quinn costumes as well... Also i'm making a new photoshoot with my Merida costume with Dahlia in July.

Some photos;

Today I delivered the Luka dress comission, the girl loved it so I'm very happy <3 She will be wearing it this Sunday, so I'll post some photos then. Now I can continue with my cosplay and other projects on my little free time between job and classes, I wanted to make a series of simple portaits of some of my favorite characters, all with the same style.

I started with Harley Quinn and Babydoll. The harley has one eye quite weird, I have to fix it :3

Hello everybody,
I really can't find time to make things for my own. Working in the morning and classes at night. I've just finished an Alice: Madness Returns classic blue dress for a friend, now I have to finish her Vorpal Blade and Skull. Also I must finish a Luka dress next week and don't get me started on the exams... My neck hurts so bad and I want to sleep all day x_x

On the other hand, I gave myself a little present <3 I finished my Ariel design for my leg tattoo and last friday I had my first session.Basic design:

Thanks !

On the other hand, I finished my tattoo, and started the design on the new one. Here is a photo of myself, where you can see it ^^

And this is a sketch for the next one, far from being complete. I love being part of the design of them <3

Finally, I'm doing a photoshoot next week with Sevi , if lucky, because of the hot weather in this time of the year, Wearing my new costume, and also an old one I have improved.

This year is going to be a calm one talking about cosplay, I'm focusing on my studies and other projects, first things first. I've started an intensive class on Photography so I hope to make some productions of my own if I have the time.

Thanks to :iconladymerrethsauthor: for the one-month premium membership gift, I really didn't expect that! I'm glad you like my stuff, like you said in the note.

On the other hand, I'm starting this year with a new cosplay, quite easy, but is one of my favorite characters of all time. The costume is here waiting for the wig to arrive lol ! And after my birthday I'll start sewing my 2 upcoming cosplays if everything goes okay.

As an early birthday gift, I started my first tattoo. It needs to be painted, but I love it even without the colors. I design it myself based on a german artist I like A LOT. My next week is my next session, so I hope it to be finished then !
The photo just can't show how beautiful it is, I love it. And the artist that got the chance to ink me (lol) is just amazing, he will never read this, but thank you <3

Also, I started drawing again and practicing digital painting. I have not made a drawing in ages. So, yeah. here it is.

That's all for now,

C :heart:

Premium, again !

I've got a month of premium membership again as a gift from the lovely :iconrizaumi: I love you girl ^^ Thank you !

I have been bussy as hell with exams and meanwhile, on my little free time I got to sew to make some costumes this half of the year.

I'd like to thank everyone that shared my photos, specially the ones of my Merida cosplay. I've got a lot of compliments about that costume, and those little things are the ones that make you smile even at bad times like most time this year ... So thank you, it may sound corny but it's how I feel.
Also, because of that, a children hailr saloon contacted me to make a minute video as Merida for the kids, as Traci Hines made a video for them as Rapunzel, now I'll be Merida. Such a hughe honor, so i'll be working with Dahlia ( the girl that made our backstage videos ) making a script and practice my acting and my scotish accent.

I was quite short of time, but we did a backstage video for Merida's photoshoot as well, but I couldn't post it preperly. Here are some stills of the video and the link to the video. Hope you likey guys !

This is the direct link to the Video:…

Despite all the bad things, I learned a lot this year, I believe I made a hughe improvement with my costumes. Hope you liked my last ones!

So, I think that's all for now and Merry Xmas to you all !

I really hope I can see more of these photoshoot, specially the ones with the other costume :D

Last Saturday, Sevi, Cintia and Barbara went for a new photoshoot. I always wanted to make a big one with Babydoll, specialy with Sevi, that always wanted to photograph me with this costume as well. I'm having a lot of tests and some practical works, so it feels good to have some free time for this stuff, also I cannot wait to finish my test today and start sewing my two upcoming costumes and my friend's costume too, she's gonna kill me if I don't finish it soon :D

This time we decided to rent a studio, that had already some lightning equipment, rather than Sevi's home infinit background. Cintia contacted us, she said she liked how we worked together and was intered in making a backstage of the session, and Bárbara Rivas came to help us as well. It was a lot of fun. And I could take some photos with the Orphanage Uniform too, we tried some with the make up all messy to make some kinna "broken angel" look photographie. I liked that we went for some scene look-a-like shoots too, not only with my face or full body centered images , but a fraction of it , that kind of photos also accentuated the details on my costume .

I already uploaded some, the backstage is not ready but it will be maybe this weekend, who knows? I'll make another journal for that :3

Here's one of my favorites, you don't need to show the hole costume to make a good compo:

Love, :heart:

  • Reading: The art of Tim Burton.
Vorpal Blade done for :iconsercus: , she liked mine and wanted me to make one for her. I took this chance to improve the method, this time came out way better. Can't wait to see some pictures of it when it reaches the customer. Hope you like it girl.

I couldn't go to the convention in which i was part of the poster and was going to the be a member of the jury at the final competition, personal problems. But in the other hand my friend debbuted the Mumm-ra costume I made for him. I built the mummy long shirt, trousers, white hood under mask, cape, blue gloves and socks. The customer (?), my friend :P, hand sculpted the mask, feet and airbrushed the gloves and socks to give them some shadows.
He is awesome, he deserves to be shown ^^

Also, my Harley Quinn costume based on :iconnoflutter: drawing, and Sevi Yummy photos were featured at… . So congrats to Sevi and YAY me !

I've finished my Fasnci VI's costumes, i'd hope to make a photoshoot soon with some! But I don't think i'll have free time for the next weeks. I'm working on a final exam and I must continue the Vorpal Blade for :iconsercus:, Mumm ra's costume for a friend, and an Alice Liddell costume for another friend.. I may have to make another too u_u. After all those I would be able to continue my other project with :iconrizaumi: and continue remaking some of my old costumes ^^

Please be patience you guys :heart:

BTW i've edited a new "old" photo from the Alice photoshoot with Sevi Yummy. Hope you likey.
