RWBY - Emerald Sustrai Trial & Error Worklog Part 1

I was planning on writing about this worklog after a proper photoshoot but I guess it won't be happening anytime soon and I needed to post something new on my blog since I've been away for too long.

This isn't going to be a proper worklog tutorial though because the entire process is a messy series of trial and errors so it'll mostly be a series of progress photos. But I'll try to explain some of it as much as I can. Also, I'll be splitting this into two parts because if I don't, this post is going to be really long and photo-heavy.

Yang Xiao Long Post-Timeskip Full Cosplay Worklog

It's been long overdue but we're finally on the final part of this worklog! It wasn't easy, everything looks so complex and advance I couldn't even imagine how I'm going to go through with this but I did it and it turned out great! This project has been my favorite so far and I'm really proud of it.

World of Darkness: A Game Documentary Review

Humans have always been been drawn to the occult. Whether out of fear or fascination, it has become an integral part of our culture. What does it feels like to walk among the creatures of the night?

World of Darkness is a fictional setting for a supernatural horror themed role-playing game that captured millions of audiences worldwide because of its unique take on the classic tabletop role-playing game. World of Darkness: The Documentary is an 88-minute film that showcases the rise and fall of one of the most popular role-playing game that ever graced the tabletop community.

Yang Xiao Long Post-Timeskip No-stretch Boot Cover Worklog / Tutorial

I'm back again with another boot cover DIY tutorial and this has been my favorite so far out of all the boot covers I've made because I've incorporated a lot of stuff I learned from my previous boot covers and the result exceeded my expectations. There were a couple of fitting problems and wayward stitches along the way but that was just me being sloppy due to con crunch lol.

So, yeah. This is part two of my Yang Xiao Long post-timeskip worklog series.

(Part 1 | Complete Worklog)

  • Fabric
    • I basically just used two colors of non-stretch fabric here. Leather types would probably be well-suited for this and you wouldn't need to interface but my sewing machine wouldn't be able to handle it so I had to improvise. Work with whatever is easier for you.
    • Don't forget to have enough to include the lining
  • Interfacing (if you're using a normal fabric like i do)
  • 2 Metal zippers
    • For the zipper detail on the front... or if you can find exactly huge ones like those from the reference.
  • 2 hidden zippers (can at least reach from ankle to calf length)
  • Metal rings
    • At least 1" in radius
  • A pair of heeled, close-toed shoe for the base
    • I find making boot covers on a pair of high-heeled shoes easier because of the wider shin-feet angle
  • Cling wrap
  • Masking/Duct tape
  • Pattern paper
