Final Dipper Makeup test before Sunday of Dragon*con! I’m pretty psyched about this, this book is literally the coolest prop I have made so far (between learning that I can actually draw and write cursive, which I didn’t know I could do, and hand making the pages of the book, this has been so much fun!) And of the 3 or 4 makeup tests I’ve done for him, this is by far my favorite. I’m so excited to get to be Dipper on Sunday! Woo! This is gonna be awesome!
#WIPWednesday More Gravity Falls! I actually finished my cover today! I’m pretty happy with how it’s coming out. I made a couple more pages, but not many this week. I also did a makeup test for Mabel and Dipper with brown eyes (I did blue before) and the newer costume pieces I have worked on. Woo!
I don’t remember if I’ve shared this on here or not. But I really love being Anna, after watching the movie the first time I said, “yep! That’s me!” Unfortunately out of costume I look nothing like Anna, so it’s unlikely I will ever get to be her at Disney :/ (I don’t really look like anyone out of costume)
Why did they cut this?! This is amazing!!!
GRAVITY FALLS DELETED SCENES
Just in case any of you haven’t seen this yet, Its a bunch of deleted scenes of how Bill and Dipper met and so on. If you have already watched the dreamscaperers episode then i fully recommend that you watch this as well!
WIPWednesday! I’ve been working on my Gravity Falls Journal 3 for the past couple days! I’m really really proud of how it’s coming out so far with the 8 out of 25ish pages I’ve worked on so far, especially since I don’t really fancy myself an artist. I basically robbed the cover off of an old book in my garage and painted and aged it and then put in the pages, which I individually tea-stained and bound together. I still need to decipher the scribbles in the book so I can add the writing, but it’s really really hard to read that. I can’t tell if it’s legitimately cursive or just scribbles. Or a mixture of both. I’m really excited about this cosplay, although I have promised myself I won’t start on the costume(s?) itself until september. But I’m psyched about this one! :D

27 cosplays in 8 months
I sat down yesterday and decided to tally up all of the cosplays I have made this year. The totally, as of August 2014, currently stands at 21 cosplays and makeup tests (which are usually for cosplays in development) and an additional 6 cosplays for other people (actually I have two more I made for our Peter Pan photoshoot last week, but I don’t have any pictures of those cuties yet). But yeah, all of these except for the very last row are all me. This is just as of August, I also have some other projects in the works that I’m pretty excited about. But please check out my cosplay page and see all of the crazy costumes I have made so far in 2014.
Check out my cosplay page and see the cool stuff I’ve put up there and stay tuned for some cool stuff I have in the works :)
Late evening + finding wigs in my house +watching a LOT of Gravity Falls= this.
I closet pulled all of this so tis not perfect. If I ever actually do these cosplays you can bet I will totes mcgotes get me some legit costumes and SUPER legit props and will work on that makeup more, but I think this is ok considering I just pulled things out of my closet and I think it’s ok for that. Although on the plus side it was pretty easy to make Mabel and Dipper resemble each other since, obviously, I look a lot like myself. I am a huge dork. And I really love Gravity Falls.
I have aparently started making Side-by-side comparisons of the progress of some of my cosplays. Which is pretty encouraging. This stuff is fun.
While we were cleaning the garage yesterday I found my old Hiccup wig! So I steamed the crap out of it and re-vived it! After a little trimming and styling it looks WAAAYY better than it did almost 3 years ago when I originally wore this costume. So I pulled out my costume and did a makeup test. Still have some work to do on it, I might even make a couple more props for future cons, but I’m pretty happy with it :) I also realized that with Rapunzel I’m halfway to Big 4 Bingo, which is cool.
