What are your materials of choice?
[Sorry, I was at a convention and not really able to update or anything - so instead of doing all the missed questions at once I’ll just continue now (and due to the fact that the next convention is already waiting around the corner and will be messing with the continuation of this too there’ll be another ‘waiting’-phase <’D).]I actually don’t care that much as far as sewing goes. Leather, fabric,… whatever is fitting for the costume.
In terms of crafting I prefer modeling clay for stuff like jewelry or cellular rubber. I tried to work with worbla too, but until now I never had to make a costume that really required that choise of materials.
What are your working habits? For example, do you need background noise, someone to work with, and so on…
My only real working habit is the ‘starting too late’-habit. Oh and I’m really slow too. Other than that I don’t really have working habits.
I do cry a lot if I have to cut a wig though. Ask Void, she knows.
What would you consider your area of expertise (sewing, wig styling, prop making, etc.)?
In terms of making a cosplay definitively sewing. And I kinda got better with make up too, I guess.
But since I take the ‘play’ within cosplay really seriously I can’t reduce the whole ‘area’ to only the making of a costume and preparation. Outside of it I’m constantly trying to get better at depicting a character - it’s the thing I like most about this hobby. c8
I’m currently learning to cry out of nowhere to make emotional pictures look more intense. Celes here I come.
Let’s see a picture of your work area! No cleaning it up first XP
Have a picture of my work area back in September ‘cause I just recently moved into my new (and first own hoho) little flat and wasn’t able to work on costumes yet.
