PUFF SLEEVE TUTORIAL FOR COSPLAY AND PERIOD DRESS!
Hey! There’s a lot of disjointed info out there about making puffy sleeves, and I thought it might be helpful to gather (ha) everything I’ve learned/found online in one place. Puff sleeves, more accurately known as “leg o’ mutton sleeves,” were popular between 1890 and 1906, and they’re a pretty common feature in fancy/ball gown costumes.
Under the readmore: how to draft & sew puff sleeves and tips and tricks for maximum puff! Featuring really shitty pencil-on-Post-It diagrams by me!
Many thanks to all the people whose brains I’ve picked about this, as well as all the Internet resources I’ve trawled to make this possible.
I’ve been wanting to do a photoshoot of my Kyoko Sakura cosplay since last year when I wanted to revamp it! I figured I’d do one before I sell the wig, since I may end up buying a better one. Thanks to my friend for taking the pics! This cosplay has come a long way from being a thrown together closet cosplay.
Lovely fan-art of KyouMami :3

An Alternative to Traditional Boot Covers
This was pretty well-received on my Facebook, so I decided to throw it up on Tumblr as well. :) I recently tried out a new idea for customizing boots for my Zidane costume, and it worked out just as I’d hoped! It was a great route to go since I didn’t want to cover my boot soles with fabric (like traditional boot covers do), and I also didn’t want to have seams going down the front all the way to the toe. This method may not be ideal for all applications, but I thought it was worth sharing!
Sorry that this isn’t very in depth. Unfortunately, when making my boots, I didn’t photograph certain critical steps, and those steps are difficult to explain without a visual, so I decided to just make a semi-tutorial that explained the gist of the idea. If you have any specific questions about how I did this though, feel free to drop me an ask! Or, better yet, send me a PM on my page (conversations are so much easier to follow that way). :)

First anon hate! =^.^=
Oh no the cosplay police! Hide your sewing machines! By all means anon say what you want. My tutorials are not there to say “I’m the best,” rather I am just sharing how I created the cosplay so others who are new can have a lift off point. I found that when I started my first cosplay I had no idea what to do at all, so if I could help anyone start off and improve upon my tutorial that is all I need. I know for a fact that I am new to this, so you don’t need to tell me that. I have only created 3 cosplays ever and many, if not all of my followers know that. BTW teaching is the best way to learn (I’m a cognitive psychologist so I kinda know that :p)
