New Items Sneak Peek!

I know I continuously slack off on getting new things out on a regular basis. It’s just hard with work and trying to find time in between all the other responsible things I have to get done or that come up. However, I do have three new items I am going to be posting on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. You know you guys always get the a look before anyone else.  Don’t be afraid to specifically request an item to be put on reserve either for you either. I do not mine. However, I will only reserve it for 72 hours.

As you can see two are a coffin and one is a chest. (There I go stating the obvious. )

The chest is pirate themed, One coffin is themed from the manga/anime Blood Lad, while the second one is the Nightmare Before Christmas (huge fan right here.) They are still in the process of being finished (some more than others.)

Hope you guys enjoy them.

 

Postings:

Sunday: Blood Lad

Tuesday: Nightmare Before Christmas

Thursday: Pirate Chest

Sadly, I do not have a specific time for when they will be up (due to my work schedule being all over the place) but I can guarantee they will be listed on that exact day.

Costume Time

For Halloween the past couple of years, I go to this convention called Youmacon in Detroit. It last for a weekend and its a chance to throw on a costume and show off your geeky side. The first year I attended I was the Black Widow and the second year I was Rogue. I definitely received a lot of attention and it was so much fun to see what other people dressed up as.

This year I was going to cosplay as one of the two again, but I finally decided to go as Black Cat. I am going to reuse my cat suit from my Black Widow costume as a start and to save money. However, there are a few other things I need for the costume, which was over my price range at few Halloween stores and still needed a few modifications. I simply refuse to spend $30 on something to experiment working out kinks on, especially if things do not go as planned then I just wasted money. This may seem last-minute but I work really well under pressure and never figure out my costume until the 1st of October every year.

List of things I still need:

  • Black Corset
  • Black or White Long Gloves
  • Tall Black or White Boots
  • White Fur
  • Black Choker with Gold Medallion
  • Black Mask
  • White Long Wig
  • Some ideas of how to attach the fur to the gloves, boots, and cat suit. ( I want the fur to be removable from the boots and cat suit so that I can still reuse the body suit for other costumes and still wear the boots for everyday use.)

So lets hope I can get this worked out because I am really excited to go as Black Cat. Hopefully, I get a lot of great compliments again this year on my costume. Any suggestions are welcomed as well.

Here are few photos from previous costumes and what the Black Cat looks like, as well as some shops that I like for handmade costumes and accessories on Etsy. Go ahead and check them out! Even if you already have a costume, you can never have too many and there is always next year.
