Ahhh!

I’ve been in a sewing slump. Most of my work has been completed for Katsu – with the exception of a coat and a basic gown. I have so many little details to craft and complete for nearly each costume. Ugh…I detest this part. Sewing entire outfits in a day is my strength, carefully handcrafting little bits and bobs is NOT.

This little guy is to be ‘Kamiki Tsukumo’s Precious Mascot’ from the manga arc of 青の祓魔師/Ao no Exorcist/Blue Exorcist. I had to somehow rig up a pattern and manage to bring this thing to the 3D world. I remember why I don’t make these anymore. they seem like a fun idea when you start, and then you find you need to make a pattern, hope it works, have five million colors of felt/thread and worst of all: sew by hand. My ultimate weakness orz I cannot fathom how those who do many hand-sewing projects do it. The patience and accuracy is astounding! I applaud thee!

Spoiler: I also made the outfit that goes with the above manga scan.

While mostly complete, it is now with the matching mini-plush mascot and a brooch. I may forgo the headband as I really am not inspired to make it (can’t be arsed). This image is also missing the inner shirt and petticoat.

Anyway, back to the grind. Gotta get back to sewing.
