A well deserved update is needed on this account, sorry everyone for falling so silent the past while.

Life hasn't been bad, but it hasn't been kind either. Battled some health issues/injuries, a little internal conflict, and quit my job this past weekend among other things. On the better side of news, my lack of drawings is because I've been collecting materials, and starting a new costume which has taken the bulk of my free time. I'm pretty happy that next year I have a convention planned, and will get to see some old friends. Might host a photoshoot too, if all goes well. My friend got me into the Dynasty/Samurai Warriors series, and I fell in love with them. Hyrule Warriors came out this past weekend, and it's been pretty fun too, absolutely love the boss battles. Not to mention Super Smash Brothers is just around the corner~

Some people know who I'm cosplaying, I'll keep it a secret for now, but I'll post WIPs if people are interested. Otherwise I'll sink back into the shadows... and keep learning my bamboo flute. ;)

I'm not dead, I have just been away from DA ^^;
I had almost no internet this summer so I kinda stayed away from the computer and I havn't drawn anything.. (or answered any posts at all..:XD:) Hopefully I'll start to be normal and do all these normal stuff hehe
I hope everything is good for you :)

I'm glad to hear back from you, and that everything is fine. :) I hope even without internet, you enjoyed your Summer while it lasted! (I've also been neglectful of my DA, working on cosplays, so less drawing has occurred here too...)

The summer was good :) relaxing
but autumn brought a nasty cold.. been lying in bed for days XD

I hope this autumn/winter will bring some inspiration, feels like I have had zero for months
Inspiration and energy, I have no idea where my energy fled? I really miss it

How are things at your end? I really hope it's better for you, not that it's terrible for me but still..

I hope you have a blanket, or something to keep you warm then. :) Feel better soon!

I've felt unmotivated myself throughout Summer, but it's probably due to being overworked, and stressed. I've had a good amount of creative ideas though lately, which I'm hoping to start this October. I'm also hoping to do more on festivals, and take days off. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a day off, so maybe it'll help. Maybe look back at your days, see why you feel like you have no energy, you might be running around doing a lot of things too?

I might be on par with you, my Summer wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Just busy. I finally caught up on all the episodes of turtles a couple days ago, the finale ended pretty solemn. I'm looking forward to the new season. :)

I tried to describe the process as best I could throughout my WIP images. They were done within a very short time, so I couldn't take as many photos as I was hoping. Everything was done through trial and error, and fixed throughout construction. The ratios are to my body height & size, so there's no set pattern. I'm terribly sorry... :(

I do plan to make a new set of weapons in the future, so I'll try to document it better! (Hopefully for the new Zelda coming out)

Random question for you. How on earth did you make that collar on your awesome OoT Link Tunic? I'm working on mine right now, and I have no idea how to even attack this thing. -Rob

It took me a moment to find the image, but you're right. I don't explain it very well! I'm also sorry for replying so slowly. D:

I cut out a basic pattern of the shape with thick interfacing (this helps keep it shape better), you can find that stuff at fabric stores, usually behind the cutting tables, so just ask one of the workers to help you out. Afterwards, I cut 2 larger pieces of actual green fabric in the same shape (taking into account seam allowance, so half an inch all around the edging, so I could fold/sew it in), and stitched the underside, so it was secure to the interfacing. I used strong adhesive fabric glue to tuck the top layer snug underneath, and trimmed as necessary.

It's not a perfect job, but it gives the right look, and you can get it pretty clean. I know there's some proper sewing method for collars.. I just suck at sewing, so I treat it like a prop, haha.
