Drutt avatar


I've had a general interest in fashion and costume most of my life. I like crazy clothes and such so I was kinda drawn to cosplay but to be fair I've never really had the confidence to pull it off until recently, and in the past generally everything I made kinda looked rubbish.

Then I decided I wanted to learn how to sew. Luckily that went well. And got me out of a pretty horrible depressive rut, which I wouldn't wish on anyone.

Why do I like cosplay? Basically it's all fun to me and the buzz you get is brilliant really. I personally like all the problem solving you have to do (or what am I going to do to alter this the way I want it) and the results. I personally like to look for what I think'll work best (but honestly I think that's the perfectionist in me coming through). Generally I'll give everything a go though and hope for the best.

Seeing the whole article complete is pretty awesome in itself too, and networking which is something I am not that good at but I'll learn. I'll learn.

Drutt - Elizabeth - 15th June 2012

Dress 50% done

Dress was made from navy blue and royal blue cotton. In fact this was pretty easy to sew apart from the time the sewing machine decided to be a dick and eat all my thread while doing diagonal stitch but then I found out there was some sort of overlock mode on the machine. OTL. Though I also had to do one of the back panels twice because they were uneven. I can say the fit is rather good if a bit baggy (I may make it a little more fitted on the waist) but overall it's getting there and looking kind of nice. I need to add in the collar, do ALL THE APPLIQUE (I'm going to be kind of sick of circles after this project is done ha ha) and hem the sleeves and dress then the dress is complete.
That's the easiest thing that needs sewing on this cosplay.
