Made my Fionna bag last night!
After the longest of days.
I ended up being awake for over 24 hours, unintentionally.
I had to work at 8am, then thrifted from 4-7pm after I got off. After that I got a hysterical call from my crazy mother so I had to go over there for 3+ hours, which resulted in me not eating anything yesterday until 10:30pm on my way home.
When I finally made it back I ended up helping my Waifu-Roommate with pictures of her sewwin’ skills for facebook (she is amazing!!).
Didn’t get started on my bag until 1am and didn’t ‘finish’ until 5:30am. I finally got to sleep around 7am, only to wake up for work at ~9am.
didn’t get to buy any stuffing due to Crazy Mother Disorder.
So I had to get creative.
I hate the look of seams on super cartoony things so I didn’t want to go the standard route and make a regular back pack in AT colours.
I ended up sactificing my pillow to the Cosplay Gods instead.
I too the pillow, case and all and safety pinned it into the position I wanted for my bag then took fleece and wrapped it around, tightly pinned those bits too. The straps are my signature fabric over craft foam technique, once again pinned to the pillow/bag.
I think it turned out pretty well, especially give the circumstances, lol.
I can’t decide if I’m a cosplay cheater for being stupid-good at ghetto rigging everythingor if I’m tapping in to some lost lore of our Cosplay Gods.
Either way, I need sleep.
Oh, while I was stuck at the Mothers I dug out my old maryjanes I bought long ago for my first cosplay, Zero no Tsukaima; they are a children’s size 4.
The blue shirt in these pics is just something I was wearing, not my Fionna shirt, for those just tuning in.
And the ‘button’ on the backpack is just a place holder scrap I cut in a circle for pics.
Oh man, I want to get my sword done in time for tomorrow but I have someone coming over today after work.
I have had a potpie sitting in the microwave since 1:11am
It is cooked and probably cold by now but I haven’t been able to run down stairs to get in since the EOA5 craziness.
My body was not ready.
No, not at all.
