Double Harley post! I know this picture was included in the last one, but I've always loved this particular shot and honestly thought I lost all of the individual Harley pictures that I had from years ago- luckily Clinton still had some of them and was sweet enough to share them with me!
Harley doesn't make an appearance in Serious House (it was published three years BEFORE her very first appearance, in 1989), but this is how I imagined she might look if she did! I thought that this Harley would be totally broken and exhausted inside, but constantly forcing herself to be happy in front of everyone else to keep up the happy, quirky image everyone knows her for; I wore runny eye make up, because I imagined she would cry a lot and let her real emotions out when she was by herself. (I'm sure I'll revisit this design again one day, I love it too much not to take another swing at it! ❀)

'Casual' Azrael to start your Saturday! This was originally a little test to see what the mask and hood looked like together before I attached the cloak! πŸ˜‰

I hope everyone had fun at SDCC! It sure LOOKED like a blast! 😍 Who else can't wait for more new Steven Universe?! I'm so excited about the new teasers we got, it looks like things are about to get even heavier! And in regards to the Off Colors: DEFINITELY a moment where I looked around thinking, "Okay, who's gonna do the first group cosplay of this?? Because I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE, STAT", and we all know I'm a sucker for capes, sooo... πŸ˜‚β€

(Also, for those who haven't seen my story yet, thank you all for being so patient with me lately; I know I haven't been posting as much recently, but I've been busy working, taking care of my car, our film, and our cosplays for San Fran! I'll have more to post soon, but in the mean time, thank you so much again for bearing with me! Sending lots of love to everyone, you're all amazing!! ❀)

I hope you guys have the best Monday ever! I'm off to attempt this adulting thing and brave the DMV, hopefully it's not too crazy today! πŸ˜› In the mean time, here's a throwback to the Serious House Harley cosplay I wore for my first con ever! She was one of the first costumes I ever SERIOUSLY sat down and designed, and although I'd love to remake this and improve it one day, I can't help but look back on her with fondness for what she turned out to be! ❀

Facebook tells me that I finished making this two years ago today, so...throwback to the first thing I ever sewed, my Joker tailcoat vest! πŸ˜ˆπŸ’š I still love wearing it to this day, I can't get over how much I love the mismatching buttons! Sewing is definitely something I want to do more often (rather than only when I have a line up of costumes to work on). I find it requires a lot of patience and it's really challenging (right now, I struggle with pattern-making from scratch the most), but the result is always beyond rewarding and I love getting to wear it in the end! Ultimately, I want to not only design my own clothes and dresses, but I also want to be able to sew and produce it all myself, too (with love in every stitch!), so I won't be stopping any time soon! My heart and passion won't allow it! πŸ˜šβ€οΈβœ‚οΈ

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, friends! I promise I'm not dead! Between work, gathering things for our cosplays, and organizing for our film, we've been pretty busy! I'll have new and exciting things to post soon, but in the mean time, here's a throwback to my Spider Queen! πŸ•Έβœ¨

(Fun fact: I LOVED the 1973 version of Charlotte's Web when I was younger (I would watch it over and over and over again), so naturally, Debbie Reynolds' Charlotte is my favorite! 😍)

Here it is, the cosplay I'm currently working on: Punk Red X! I feel like it was only a matter of time before I cosplayed him in some way, shape, or form, considering he's always been one of my favorite characters from the original Teen Titans series! His costume, while very sleek and simple, gave me lots to translate in to a punkier design; for example, I turned his tattered cape in to a tattered asymmetrical sleeveless jacket/skirt and I plan on giving the chest symbol a spray-painted look, with little drips and paint specks here and there! I just had to deck the whole thing out with plenty of spikes and fishnets, and I think it'll look killer with the black and gray color scheme. I'm so excited to see how this one comes out- I'm in the process of making the belt now, and other parts I need to get the costume started are on the way! πŸ˜‰

2017 is turning out to be quite the busy year for us! Within the next four or so months, we'll be attending San Francisco Comic Con, seeing Gorillaz in LA, going to the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento to see Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle(!!!), and to top it all off, we're also working on another film! 😡❀ I'm beyond excited, and can't wait to work on our new cosplays as well; I'll be venturing in to new, unfamiliar costume territory (but territory I've been personally wanting to explore with my own hands for quite a while now) and hopefully learning a lot! One of my favorite things about cosplay is that there's always something new to learn and try or something to improve upon, and I can't wait to share this progress with you guys! I'm confident you'll be just as excited as we are about it~ πŸ˜‰

I hope you guys are having a wonderful week so far! Remember to stay strong and kind, and no matter what, stay true to yourself. Always be yourself and NEVER apologize for that. If you know what you want, take a deep breath, put on a big smile, and go get it! If you don't yet, that's okay too...as long as you're not staying stagnant, you're doing great. Don't let anyone rush you or feel bad for not knowing exactly where you're going, because it'll all come together with time! πŸ˜‰βœ¨

(Random side note, but speaking of the brilliant Queen of Mystery up there, is anyone else excited about Murder on the Orient Express coming out this November?? I totally didn't expect them to adapt it again, and the cast looks amazing! I really, really loved the book, so hopefully this film will be just as great! πŸ˜πŸš‚)

Sorry for the lack of normal posts lately, guys! I haven't been feeling too great over the past week, and I've been working on treating myself better and getting my personal optimism back. I'll be okay, it just might take a bit this time around. As always, a huge shout out to my partner in crime for taking care of me, listening to me and wiping my tears, and being my strength when I don't have any in the moment. He never gives up on me, never lets me give up on MYSELF, and makes me feel super inside and out, so here's a throwback to Thrillkiller Batman and Batgirl! ❀

Although Tim is my favorite Robin, I still have to show some appreciation for Dick Grayson, the OG Boy Wonder! I love the satin on this cosplay, I think it really makes everything pop! πŸ’›βœ¨

...Not the right Robin for the quote, but as soon as I heard it, it made me laugh so much that I knew I needed to use it at some point! 😜 I've decided that some time soon, I'll be completely redoing my Tim Drake Robin! This was the first cosplay I consider having made myself, and while I love it to death and love wearing it, I would like to improve little things here and there and make it even better. I wanted to make this one as accurate to his 90s look as I could (bright colors and all), but I think I may try making the new one more modern, maybe incorporating the Arkhamverse color schemes more? We'll see, but I'm really excited about working on him again! ❀

(Random side note: Did you know that in the middle of the fight between Batman and Superman in Dawn of Justice, if you watch closely, there's a wall in the background that's spray painted with "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?", which pretty much translates to "Who watches the Watchmen?" in Latin? I'm sure Zack Snyder was really excited about that one! 😝)
