Cosplay | Spellthief Lux

Happy Monday! I’m excited to be sharing another one of my costumes with you. This time it’s Spellthief Lux from League of Legends!

COSTUME DETAILS:
Hood: The hood pattern was drafted by me and is made out of suede. I did have a simplicity cloak pattern, but got so frustrated with it that I scrapped it and made my own! I used about 4 yards of muslin making mock-ups. I edged it in purple satin and used puff paint for the design.

Staff: I loosely followed Courtney’s Lux staff tutorial. Great resource if you’re looking to build the staff. However, I only used worbla for the ends and twisted them more than the tutorial, and the effect personally was more like the splash art.

Belts: All belts were made from upholstery leather I got at Jo-Anns, and I bought the buckles on etsy.

Potion bottles: I used these sand art bottles, and filled them with gel beads.

The shirt was bought at target, and I poked holes in plain corduroy pants and laced them up the sides with leather cords.

I wore her to Granite State Comic Con, and hope to re-wear at a future convention as it’s a pretty comfortable costume and easy to wear. This particular character is my favorite to play in the game, and this skin is my favorite to use while playing her. If you play League, have you played her before?

Be sure to follow along on my Facebook page for more of my cosplay progress shots.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Happy friday! I’ve been a bit quiet lately because I’m trying to finish up my Sailor V costume in time for RI Comic Con later this month, so I’ve been working hard at night to finish everything up (plus 2 other costumes…) Anyway, here are some friday links!

Happy Friday!
Happy Friday!

Who doesn’t love a good cocktail? This zinfandel grape rosemary gin crush sounds delicious!

Raspberry chocolate jewels also sound delicious, no? These fun sweets would make perfect gifts…it’s never to early to start holiday shopping…

I love this Heartseeker Akali concept skin illustration by dutomaster. If this were an actual skin in League of Legends, I would definitely purchase it.

 

I’ve also just realized, this post is giving off a pretty heavy “Valentine’s day” vibe. Oh well!

What are your plans this weekend?

Product & Print | 074

Product & Print | 074

It’s time for another Product & Print! I have to say, I had a lot of fun with this week’s post. And also now I’m craving pocky!

Product & Print

The ‘product’ portion of today’s post isn’t so much a project, rather, a recipe! Homemade pocky! Mmmm. Pocky is one of those items I never crave, but always want if I see a box. I love that I could make them right at home!

Of course, I chose this mahou shoujo print set of Kyoko Sakura eating pocky, her signature. She’s from the show Madoka Magica, which I highly recommend.

Have you seen Madoka Magica? The episodes are on Netflix, and I finished the season in less than a week. Of course, I have plans next year to cosplay as Kyoko Sakura ;)

Future 52

Future 52

I came across the Future 52 project last week, and boy, what a great idea it is. “Fifty-two weeks. Fifty-two creators. Fifty-two creations.”

This blog was created to help a Bishop, an employee of “The Company”, in the year 2297. As detailed in the below time transmission, an apocalyptic scenario on Earth has led Bishop to once again seek the help of designers and illustrators from our time period.

Read more about the project and it’s creators here.

Flexoskeletal Hover Patrol Suit by Chaz Russo | 2K/2K Vision by Logan Faerber

Make sure you go check out the entire project – there are so many creative illustrations here! Which of these are your favorites?

Fun Flash Drives

Fun Flash Drives

Who doesn’t love a good flash drive, am I right? I was clearing out some of my old bookmarks and found these drives, and it prompted me to want to pull together some of the most fun drives I could find. So, here’s a whole bunch of clever flash drives that look way cooler than those boring ones we probably all have:

Fun Flash Drives

empty memory by logical art | kate spade bow | wooden usb stick by oooms | clé usb keys
data clips by nendo | marceline mimobot | sabochan MIMOBOT® by tokidoki

Do you have a fun flash drive, or any sort of crazy fun tech gadgets? I’m feeling quite embarrassed of my cruzer drive which yes, I still use…
