Quick Update!

4 Jan

Hey everyone!
I just wanted to post a quick photo of what I’m working in at THIS very moment.

I recently ordered a bodysuit online and though the measurements were right on the site, it came in totally wrong. So, I decided I should alter it myself.
I’ll get into the story more when I have the finished product for you guys, but here’s a sneak peek at what’s going down now. :D

Right now I’m lacing it up over the bust area because…things like to pop out with the way it currently is. We can’t have that.
Haha! :p

Head Wing Process Part 1

3 Jan

Okay, so as I said before, my first cosplay I plan on doing this year is Morrigan Aensland.

As of now, I’m currently working on both sets of her wings.

I’ve finished the head wings at this point and am…stalling to finish the larger wings.

However, I’d just like to post some pictures I took while I made the head wings.

I actually made a set prior to these using a tutorial, but my version came out quite terribly. lol -tear drop-

What is this?

And why is the sexy succubus Morrigan Aensland on this post?

Well, it’s because she’s the first cosplay I’ve wanted to do for the longest time.

Therefore, I plan to complete this for Otakon 2013.

So as of right now, I’m working on completing my cosplay for Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers.

I’ve been working on it since this summer (June 2012) and I’m almost complete…kinda.

I’ll give an update of what I have so far. D: So many hours to go.

Stick around~!

Introduction~!

29 Dec

Hello everyone!

I guess I’d like to start this blog off with an introduction of myself and what to expect on this blog.

It may be a lot of text, but please don’t (tl;dr) me. I’ll try to make it exciting. :p

The very first costume I put together for a contest in 2009.
Me as Sheik from the Legend of Zelda series

First thing is first:

Name: Ariel

Nickname: Jenny (for some odd reason)

Age: 19yrs

Location: America

Occupation: College Student (Chinese Language Major)

Hobbies: Video games, manga, anime, television, goofing off, crafting, reading and eating candy

So yep. That’s generally me.

In this blog, I want to share my journey of crafting.

I’m not a pro and I don’t have funds to make extraordinary pieces, but I’m developing my hobby of making things and I’d like to share my quest. I hope you all will enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy making all of the items I post on here.

I don’t claim to be the best at this or anything; I’m far from it, thus the N00b in the blog name. (haha)

I’ve just been inspired by so many cosplayers and prop makers over the years that I really want to become better at what I like to do.

I’m so nervous about this blog, but I hope I gain much support!

Thank you,

AJ
