Lady Euphoria
Thank you for visiting,

This is what Lady Sif looks like as of right now… and she will remain incomplete for ten months until I return to the US to finish her :(

I am so fucking pissed off right now. Between Monday, Tuesday and today, I have been running errands with my mom that just took up WAY too much time… like between all three days it took at least 15 hours… I haven’t even packed yet…and if we didn’t spend so much time out (my portion of the errands did not take super long… it was my errants PLUS her errands…) I just..

I cannot finish Sif.

I have to make the shield, attach armour to boots, add the rectangles to the skirt, add the fake chainmail to the skirt, add the straps to attach the chest/back armour… add a little bit to the back armour, add the strap for the pauldron to the collar piece…add armour to the collar piece as well as clips for the cape and shorten the cape a little.

I just…if those fucking errands hadn’t taken so long Lady Sif would have been fucking done already and I’d have already begun packing…

And sadly, because I cannot complete sif and will have to pick her up next year, this means I will not be attending any conventions. I don’t have anything to wear…I’ve been busting my ass of trying to work on her since July…

July not only was I working, working on university stuff (which took up a lot of time) and hosted a Spanish student (which took even more time) I virtually couldn’t work on her…and I had to rush so much of her in August….I was just… by body can’t take it. I can’t pull all nighters and it just makes me so upset because I was working on her SPECIFICALLY TO BRING TO ENGLAND AND TO ATTEND CONVENTIONS OVER THERE BUT NOPE! I have zero luck…I never have luck with anything and I just…I don’t even want to talk about it anymore. I have to go stuff her back on the mannequin to sit in my room for fucking ten months.

I am like… in panic mode right now…

Monday and today I have been so busy running last minute errands and what-not that I’ve had very little time to work on Lady Sif, and I HAVE to finish her tomorrow AND pack (which I haven’t even started yet!)  because I have to leave my house at 3:00 on Thursday!

I found my favourite colour (teal) in lollipop form. I am currently eating my favourite colour. <3

So I went to get a mani-pedi with my mom and the woman doing my nails asked if my father was Asian because I look Asian (apparently) lol!!!

The Last of the Armour!

Now to let this dry over night to paint tomorrow!

Can not wait to see this all done!

I can’t wait either! Especially because I need to finish her before Thursday since I am leaving the country for a year and need to ship her overseas >.<

But I think she is coming along rather well…

She is looking so good, honestly one of the best I have seen! You can do it!

Aaah!!! *blushes* thank you <3 This is my first time doing armour and I feel like she’s been so rushed because I hadn’t much time to work on her >.

Shit… the edges of my skirt panels are too thick that I can’t handsew with heavy duty needles (every one I used bent) and its too thick for my machine to handle so I can’t do the stitching on the skirt @.@

I will probably just have to cut out little rectangles and glue them on…its going to take a long ass time to cut them out and colour in the edges of the fabric :(

And I only have like… four days to finish her…

Hello, I've been scouring the internet for any pattern that could be used to replicate Jade Curtiss' (default) jacket coat thing, and I saw your post in regards of not knowing who to cosplay (Jade, Raine, or Natalia) and I was wondering, if you decided on Jade, did you thake that jacket apart and get a pattern? If so, it would be positively lovely if you were to share the pattern. It's fine if you don't though, and thanks for putting up with my long message!

I haven’t taken the jacket apart as I haven’t had the time… And I’m moving out of the country next week for university so I won’t have access to it for a year! However I will offer some tips for how I do pattern making!

Get as many shots at as many angles as possible and… Take everything apart! Draw it out on paper, go for a walk and imagine the articles of clothing in your head and how they piece together and draw it out… Draw the article as a whole and then draw the parts that make up the whole piece.

Have a sibling or a friend wrap you in plastic wrap and then masking tape and cut you out. Draw on it where the seams are based on the photos you have gathered, cut them out, trace it onto muslin (cheap fabric), add seam allowance, cut out the pieces and sew them together to make a mock version to see how it comes out and continue to make any adjustments you need.

I do this… Multiple times until I am satisfied before cutting out my fabric! It does take a long time, but it’s well worth it! I hope this somewhat helps… And please message me if you have any other questions!!!!

Please remove my photo (the one with otaku house) as you did not give me or my photographer credit nor did you do the same to the other cosplayer.
