I Admire | NoFlutter aka Jennifer Vaiano

Have you seen the work of NoFlutter aka Jennifer Vaiano? She has this amazing lolita-esque style, and draws the most detailed corsets and frills. Every single sketch she does is so filled with details and it’s like looking at a pretty dessert.

I had a hard time choosing favorites to post, but here are some of a few I adore.

Which one of these is your favorite? I have such a hard time choosing since all of her characters are so gorgeous.

Be sure to follow Jennifer on Facebook!

Cosplay | Aurora, Child of Light

Cosplay | Aurora, Child of Light

Today I’m sharing my newest cosplay venture, Aurora from Child of Light!

If you haven’t heard of Child of Light, it’s a beautiful game (for PlayStation, XBox, and Steam) from Ubisoft. According to the official website,

The duke’s daughter Aurora is dead… and yet, she lives. Join Aurora across the mysterious kingdom of Lemuria on her quest to return home. Helped by Igniculus the firefly, Finn the Capilli and many more, she must defeat the Queen of the Night who has stolen the sun, the moon and the stars.

COSTUME DETAILS:
Dress: Cream jersey knit, and the trim is a gold spandex. I used heat n’ bond on the cut-out shapes on the bottom.

Sword: The base was foam core, held together with glue. I then papier-mâchéd it, used a few layers of gesso to prime, and painted. It was weathered using a sponge and wateredd-down black paint. I used about three layers of mod podge to make it shiny.

Crown: This was my first adventure with worbla! The base shape was foam, and I molded the worbla around it. Then it was primed and painted, and I used sequins and pearls for the details.

Ignigulus: I decided to make Igniculus into a pouch for functionality. He was made out of some scrap blue fabric into a drawstring pouch, and I put LED lights in him to light up.

Wings: These were shaped of wire, then covered in gauze. The wires at the end bent into an “L” shape, and stuck in a little fabric-covered foam. I looped ribbon around the foam, and the wings attached over my shoulders.

I’m really happy with this, and walking around Boston Comic Con with the massive sword was definitely fun. Don’t forget to follow along on my Facebook for all of my progress shots!

Have you played this game?

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

It doesn’t quite feel like September to me yet, most likely because we’ve been experiencing unusually high temperatures. But I’m eagerly awaiting cooler temperatures (boots and blazers anyone?).

This week’s Happy Friday post is a bit, well, boozy. We have some liquor illustrations, and a recipe for boozy cupcakes. Happy weekend, everyone!

Product & Print | 073

Oh look, another Sailor Moon-related post! Oh well. Ever since the remake has started airing, I’m thrown back into nostalgia and revisit my childhood. Usagi/Sailor Moon was my favorite hero and I love seeing so many fun tributes throughout the years. So, here are some more favorites!

Sailor Moon | Product & Print

buns & guns shirt is probably the goofiest, silliest, cutest shirt I’ve seen in a while, and it would be so cozy in the winter. Compared with the cute print by Jizzybro, we see two very different takes on the character, but both are still so essentially Sailor Moon.

Do you have any Sailor Moon favorites?

Mario Kart Illustrations

Mario Kart Illustrations

All I’ve wanted to do for the past three years is play Mario Kart. That’s all. The problem is, I don’t own a Wii, so I’m stuck with watching play-throughs and looking at designs, illustrations, and cosplays.

I thought it would be fun to round up some illustrations…as you can see, Mario Kart illustrations come in all different styles! I had a hard time choosing my favorites, but I ended up with these 4:

Torn Princesses by TheJayPhenrix | Beware the Blue Shell by Winter
Pixel Characters by Olga O. | The Blue Shell by Benjamagnus Design

And once I do get a Wii (you bet it’ll happen this year!), I have a feeling I’m going to want to cosplay Racer Peach! Are you a Mario Kart fan?
