I'm actually a freecutter, so I don't use patterns or anything =3 The best advice I can offer is to have a dressform to work with. I would be lost without mine!

I'd freak if you did the Eeveeloutions (especially Flareon!). I'd totally work it, or at least try to!!!!

I would totally just DIE from happiness if you would make a disney villain themed pinafore!!! especially one of jafar and ursula or a disney side character like GENIE :D

DisneyWorld and Baymax

Hello! I'm finally back from my dream vacation to Disney World and just thought I'd share a couple of my Disneybound  outfits  =3  I've posted most of the pieces on deviantArt, but I figured I'd post the actually looks being worn  =3

I met Hiro and Baymax at Hollywood Studios and was totally stoked to be all dressed up for it! I'll have to upload pictures of the meet and greet later since the Hiro cast member was extremely involved. He showed Baymax my backpack and everything  ^_^ And, yes, his inflatable hugs are awesome!

My Jack outfit was short-lived since it was crazy windy that day. I ended up having to change into jeans (yuck!) and a parka since my Californian body can't handle anything below 70 degrees. It's okay, though; I made up for it by wearing my Edward Elric cardigan underneath the parka!

I wore Donald on our last day at Magic Kingdom. While I only really wore the hat for pictures, the whole thing worked out great for a day of rides and fun!

P.S. There is a small chance I might bring the Baymax backpack to the store.  I just need to decide if it's worth offering since it takes a long time to make.

hello Darling,
i was looking around the internet for a cosplay idea when i came up on your totoro cosplay...
i would really like to get it but i was wondering if its in US or CAN for prices...

and about how long does it take to send over?
(the Con is in may)
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
All the prices are USD  ^_^  Domestic shipping is 2-5 days and International is supposedly a week if customs doesn't get involved

Can you make a Sally kimono/dress?
my friend is obsessed with Nighmare Before Christmas and she loved the Jack Skellington kimono and dress
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Unfortunately the Sally fabric is reeaaallly expensive, so it would definitely have to be something that was commissioned
hiphop427 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2015
Wait! Since more people are voting for a Studio Ghibli design, I thought of either Ponyo or Howl's Moving Castle
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Sophie (with Calcifer) are coming soon  ;)
hiphop427 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2015
Oh that's not good
ok then, maybe I should request for something that has cheaper fabric
emjemm Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015  Student General Artist
