Malon's Buckle by AmericanNia
Malon's Buckle
I made a belt buckle for Malon out of craft foam and wasn't satisfied with it so I made a second that fits over the actual bucket of my belt and covered it with worbla. I'm pretty satisfied with it. I'm really taking my time with this, I don't know when I'll ever be done with this costume. 
Calm before the storm- Ayane by AmericanNia
Calm before the storm- Ayane
And I'm back! I bought this beautiful cosplay from BetsyBonBon  back in June and I finally got to do a shoot in it back in August! I got together with itsthekitsunekid  and we had a fun day together and I got to be her model! She's so great in front of the camera and it serves her well behind it too. She was great with direction, posing and getting really flattering shots. I feel really hot in these pictures which is saying a lot with the weight I've put on in recent years. I can't wait to share more from that great day! :heart:
Malon Bowser Brooch by AmericanNia
Malon Bowser Brooch
I was *trying* to clean up my craft room and I found crayola model magic and had to play with it. Then next thing I know I made Malon's little Bowser brooch from Ocarina of Time. I know it doesn't exactly look like how it looks in the game or the art but I'm fine with that. I think the way I did it it's more obvious that it's supposed to be bowser and it's way cuter. I superglued the whole thing and then painted it and it came out blotchy so I sanded it down and repainted it and added some depth so you can see his features better. I love it a lot.
Elsa Frozen Fever Flower by AmericanNia
Elsa Frozen Fever Flower
I knew when I saw Elsa in Frozen Fever that I wanted to make her green dress. What I couldn't figure out is how to go about making her hair flower. My friend got married and my mom got me this cute white flower for my hair. I realized it would be perfect for Elsa so I painted six of the petals pink! (Yay nail polish!) I really like how it came out. The original flower is from Claire's.
Who'd had ever thought that this could be? by AmericanNia
Who'd had ever thought that this could be?
I made Belle for Katsucon and I am SO happy with how it came out! It's the best thing I've made in a long time! I altered two simplicity patterns and I found the perfect fabrics from Jo Ann's. Yay pink! It was so much fun to finally be a disney princess!

United States
I am a fashion design student at a community college in Pennsylvania. I post on here pretty irregularly but try to update with my cosplay pictures when I can. If you want to see more consistent posts from me I'd say check out my facebook or twitter. If you want to follow me here that'd be great too! I'm always trying to learn new things. Thanks for dropping by!
  • Mood: Joy
I can't help but notice that I'm losing so many watchers. I understand that I haven't been updating much but it still makes me sad. So I just wanted to let you all know what's going on. I have been slowing down with cosplaying. I love making costumes and dressing up but right now it's time to focus on me and grown up stuff. I'm working on getting my certificate from the fashion design program I've been a part of for the last year. After I get it I will be taking classes on how to use more computer programs so I can get an office job. I really don't know what I want to do as a career, I'd love to make costumes professionally but I need a backup plan. Whatever I choose to do I can't afford to do it on the pay I have now. I work two retail jobs but I don't want to do that forever. Also I'm planning on moving back to California with my family and boyfriend so I have to save up. Not to mention I now have to pay for health insurance and have been invited to three weddings so far this year. Money is just going to be so tight. 
What does this mean? Less costumes and less conventions. It will be May in a few days and normally I would've been to at least four conventions by now, but instead I have only been to two. I went to Katsucon and Pax East and won't be at another convention until Colossalcon.
I'm sorry if I've disappointed you and I understand if you are. I'm sure that's why thirty of you have left. I hope I get you back someday when I start going full force again with costuming and conventions when I live in California. In the meantime I hope you have other social media sites like instagram, twitter and facebook because I update on there a lot more than I do here. 
One last thing. I HAVE NOT QUIT COSPLAYING. I HAVE NOT STOPPED. I JUST SLOWED DOWN, I STILL PLAN ON MAKING A FEW COSTUMES THIS YEAR. I POST MORE REGULARLY ON OTHER SITES WHICH IS WHY I'M GIVING YOU THE LINKS. YOU DON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW ME THERE, BUT IF YOU STAY HERE I HOPE YOU ARE PATIENT WITH ME. I love you all for taking the time to follow me and support me these last few crazy years and want to say thank you. Thank you! love you! -Brenda
