a small sampling of what I am growing this gardening seasons… lots of pinks, lots of flowers, lots of veggies! ♥
OH HAI THAR~ ♥ ignore that this is belated,
I have the observational skills of a spoon. but YES! TEACH ME THE GLORIOUS WAYS OF PLUSHIE MAKING. I really wanna learn it… dabbled in it when I was very young, but got away from it… and I miss being “crafty”. ♥
I seriously want to try making plushies. I have no idea how that will turn out as I have not seriously sewn in over a decade and don’t know where my sewing machine even is but I want to attempt it.
I am weird. :|
FINALLY SUCCESS!! The base for Maneater Mildred’s butcher knife is a go! When in doubt, use presentation board. Don’t worry, the catfood is just acting as a weight until the glue dries.
Yup. IT’S HAPPENING. I AM GETTING BACK INTO COSPLAYING AGAIN
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES No progress shots [yet…], but I have most of the items I need to make the prop… which is the hardest part. [damn my insane attention to detail and insistence on accuracy…] As to what I am cosplaying? none other than Maneater Mildred from Dark Souls! because I get to run around with a sac on my head and terrorize people with a giant knife. Bwahahaha. And I don’t have to feel bad about my weight… As I said, already got most of the items needed to make her butcher’s knife… sadly it won’t be 100% ‘to scale” because it may interfere with my table in the artist alley, [translation: my dumb ass will trip over it and face plant into the table…] but having approx 3ft rectangular block of stiff craft foam should be enough for a base! just need double sided tape, & sand paper and it should be a good base model! Then to save and get some wonderflex [ye gods it’s pricey… TT^TT], gesso, and metallic paint and I should be good to go! Thank god her actual outfit is easy… and I have a decent amount of burlap left… ohohohoho. [just need to hunt down that tutorial on how to make “invisible” sandals and I’ll be all good!]
Hopefully I’ll have it done and ready before the con…otherwise I am going to have a very panic fueled Thursday night… hahaha.
I am also in a “crafty” mood, and am going to try experimenting with something… if it works out, I may do a few things as one offs for my table, or something. We’ll see~! ♥

I’d comment on how there is no Grave of the Fireflies but that movie is horrifically depressing.
Unless it was titled something else in Japan and I am a moron.
gotta love how my supposed “art blog” has devolved into art, random thought processes, goofy/informative reblogs, and handsome men…
PRIORITIES. I HAS THEM.
I like keeping track of reference material okay
