Yesterday I handed over two costume commissions that have had me busy for the last few months. It has been an awesome experience making a custom #Thor for Patrick and #Wolverine for Matt!

I’m at #Armageddonexpo today in a psychedelic mini, come find me and have a chat about my costume workshops and commissions services! :) xx

#buffstuff The finished bodysuit for Matt’s custom #Wolverine costume for #Armageddon- can’t wait to see him in it! :) (Not that he needs the extra help with the shaded muscles!)

Oh #Wolverine! You cad! Almost finished the #cowl, so thought a cheeky selfie with this scoundrel was warranted! jJust needing to clean up seams and add some little touches! #costume #handmade #cosplay

I always end up doing more hand-sewing than I intend with my costumes but I have the greatest dexterity at my disposal this way :) Here I’m attaching the soft cap of the #Wolverine #cowl to the moulded #Worbla and vinyl mask I created earlier. Slow and steady but surprisingly satisfying :) #costumemaking101

Inserting invisible zips is one of my most satisfying aspects of costume making! I once found zips tricky but practice (and an invisible zip foot for my sewing machine) make it so quick and easy to do. And they work like magic! :) #costumemaking101 #zip
