How to make Gin’s Facemask – A Bungou Stray Dogs DIY

Hello, friends! I know that I have not been the most active during the last couple of months but that does not mean that I haven’t been busy. Quite the opposite actually. But I might just save those tiny little details for a small catch-up-post. I have uploaded some more videos on the channel, some smaller, some bigger and I will post the others shortly. This one’s showing my process on an anime inspired facemask. As in #WearYourMask but also be a weeb at the same time. I basically say it all in the video so I am going to shut up now and show you how you yourself can make Gin Akutagawa’s Facemask from Bungou Stray Dogs. Quickstart Guide Get some sewing supplies. You’ll need: Some scrap fabric of your choice. Honestly, the pattern will look good no matter what but if you want to stick with the reference you might chose something white to light grey-ish. Some thread befitting of your fabric. A wire to put into your mask and over your nose. …

Toko Fukawa Cosplay Progress: Shirt and Sailor Collar – Video and Transkript

Scene 1 Hello! It is I again. Back with a third cosplay video. It took me some time to get this done, since uni started in the meanwhile and … it’s not great. Not at all …But you probably wouldn’t even have noticed, since I have been waiting to post these until I finished all of them, this one included. Scene 2 Today we’re going to be doing our third and last piece – Toko’s top as well as the sailor collar, which is detachable. Scene 3 I am a huge fan of detachable cosplay pieces. One big issue with cosplay is that it is a very sweaty hobby. It’s disgusting, really. And a lot of costumes can’t really go in the wash because of certain aspects and details. So I try to make as many parts washable as possible and try to construct my cosutmes as practically as possible. Scene 4 For this shirt I used an easy t-shirt pattern I already had. I don’t know if I mentioned and I am really not …

Toko Fukawa Cosplay Progress: Pleated Skirt – Video and Transkript

Scene 1 Hey! It’s my again! Aka Lilly aka @mupfinsmiley on Instagram. In my first video – So exciting, I know! – I tried to showcase my progress on of of my latest cosplays: Toko Fukawa from Danganronpa.I started off showing you how I made an underskirt to be worn under this and when needed under other costumes as well.Today we’re gonna be working on the second layer: The overskirt. Scene 2 I always like making skirts since they’re easy and you can get amazing looking results with few frustrations and little effort. It eneables me to get into some sort of meditative trance really quickly and I do enjoy that so much. I also just love flowy fabrics … It’s really weird since it’s not at all what I usually wear in my day to day life. Scene 3 This one is an almost florlength pleated skirt and therefore a bit harder to make than the ruffled one from before.The concept is still the same, though: Take a long piece of fabric, shorten one …

Toko Fukawa Cosplay Progress: Underskirt – Video and Transcript

Scene 1 Hi! My name is Lilly and you may or may not know me from my Cosplay Instagram @MupfinSmiley and/or may blog … Let’s be honest. You probably don’t. Because there’s like barely 250 people on there … And I love every single one of them!Well … Enough about that. In case it isn’t obvious: I’m a tad bit anxious to be on camera. But here’s the thing: That’ll only go away if I make myself be on camera more.So, I’ve been wanting to do that for a while now. You see, I’m in a Media Studies course at my Uni and we do have some practical classes. Being on camera, operating one and editing footage will sooner or later be something I’ll have to deal with. In fact I already had too … So why not do my own little project in form of this channel? Scene 2 Well, as I’ve mentioned: I’m a cosplayer. A cosplay who now, given the current Self-Quarantine-Situation, has too much time and not enough to do to …
