I have the afternoon off because Thanksgiving is tomorrow (bless), so I’m spending some time working on my kokoshnik for Anastasia! As you can see, I’m taking a lot of creative liberty with this headpiece. The original cartoon is quite plain, but traditional Russian headpieces are typically adorned with hundreds of beads and pearls. So I designed a winter-themed beadwork pattern and have now started the ultra-tedious process of hand beading! 12.7 hours have gone into the kokoshnik so far with still many, many more to go… Fortunately, I’m staying caffeinated with plenty of tea to power through it! This cute mug is from my @redbubble Gift Guide for Crafty Cosplayers; it features anime-styled artwork (“Dozing off”) by Tofuvi (Twitter: @matchavi)!
