Qaw the Raven
This is not my costume! I am posting this because I had a hand in making it, and I had the honor of getting some photos of the completed thing. This year at RMFC I took a real camera with me for the first time to a con. I’m super glad I did, because Qaw was there!! I made the mask and claws for this on commission. The mask was done on a modified base by Crystumes. I sculpted on her crow base to make a raven’s beak, and added faux fur, hand-set about eleventy billion feathers, and hand-set an equal number of boar bristles for the rictal bristles on the beak. I was so super excited to see it in action. It’s delightful to see something I worked on, hopping around!
Qaw stopped by my dealer’s table and attempted to steal the plush gryphon Shard owned by my table-mate Jess Owen (see second to last photo), then kindly allowed me to follow it around for a few impromptu photos! I didn’t have any hand in making the rest of the costume, including the really neat vest and pants. All photos are mine, except for the last one, when I bumped into Qaw while wearing Kinglet, and my husband was able to get a photo.
The very awesome sloth in these photos is Tica. I traced down her FA gallery by searching her name: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tica
Also that vest is amazing :o
Wow, this is incredibly impressive!
6” MLP Mythological Rarity Auction
Rarity - now with hoofer floofers and lushes lashes!
I want this for my collection so badly. Doubt I’ll ever win it, but man is she gorgeous!
Some custom Sylveons :D the small one on the left is the original pokedoll and the shiny and two dx sized ones are custom. I’m finally back to feeling like sewing again so there will be more variation coming soon (and less shiny pokedoll copies). Not for sale.
These are so adorable!
AKA how to make bias tape go around corers without overlapping multiple pieces. I’ve seen other methods, but this is how I’ve always done it.
Tutorials for both inner and outer corners under the cut!
I finished the littler Rarity I was making to help SpaceVoyager test out her new pattern! The pattern is super cute and will hopefully be available for sale on etsy soon.
It’s a great pattern and I would highly recommend it for anyone who has at least a little previous sewing experience and wants to make a pony. The pattern will, as far as I know, only be for a unicorn, pegasus, or earth pony body and will not include manes or tails. I patterned Rarity’s mane and tail myself since it seemed more fun to make a complete pony than just a body!
I’m helping Spacevoyager test her new pattern. Of course I’m making a Rarity with it! I decided to use metallic thread for the main part of the iris because sparkle always does the trick when it comes to Rarity! I did it in all embroidery rather than applique/embroidery because it’s significantly smaller than the eyes for my standard sized plushies and the applique would probably not have worked as well at this size.
Hopefully I’ll get her sewn together this weekend. The pattern looks really nice and I know Space is really excited to get it finalized for release.
This is the third and final prototype! The pattern will be available through my etsy shop for $10 once everything has been finalized.
I’m now moving to step two of releasing the pattern. There’s still quite a bit to do and I will keep everyone updated.
Please help spread the word!
You are making me want to develop a new smaller pattern too! Looks great, I can’t wait to test it out for you :)
