I have so many trust issues directly related to me being open about my nerdiness that I actually did cry during this conversation. Rian had to remind me that we met because of an Adventure Time ship. Womp womp..

I’m really so busy lately that whenever I get to lay on the couch with the cat it’s a slice of heaven!!

Rian 2 New Hope commissions!

Hey hey all! I just want to let everyone who requested a reward drawing from me to know that I have not forgotten about you! As soon as the campaign ended I became unexpectedly busy, and I sincerely apologize for the delay. That busyness doesn’t have an end in sight, but I am going on a short vacation soon - and I intend to spend any free time I have finishing up your commissions!

That said, If you have donated to Rian’s fundraiser and have not yet claimed your reward, please claim your reward drawing from me by Friday, October 17th. After that date I won’t be taking reward drawings! I want to make sure they all get done!!

Please do not hesitate if you have any questions for me!

I had to honestly think about this for a minute after struggling to wake up. Whoops…? Also I legit wish I had that shirt

Hey hey ! Quick question about an old cosplay of yours ! C: I can't for the life of me figure out how to sew a scalloped pattern into my sleeves / dress for my own ice queen costume ! I was wondering how the frickity you went about it / if you have any tips!?

Ha, well, I can’t say this is any sort of professional seamstress advice because I very much guessed how to do all of that costume, lmao, but!

I cut the scallops about half an inch longer then they would be on the costume, and then every inch or so along the curve I made a small, quarter inch snip. Then I folded it over itself twice (so it was the right length), pinned it down, and sewed very, very slowly. I sewed it over top of the entire sleeve length - at its thickets, the sleeves are three layers: the sleeve, the scallop detail, and the lining. I did it intentionally since I wanted them to be weighed down. I did the same thing for the skirt, but that got so heavy that I needed to construct a plastic bustle to keep its shape.

If you zoom into the costume, you can see that it really is not a very clean job - the curves are actually just a bunch of tiny squared off edges, and the tips of the scallop stick out from where they got folded over! It’s also a satin material, which is a nightmare to work or shoot with, and it frays a lot. From a distance you can’t tell, but I definitely wouldn’t win any contests!! In retrospect, much as it would have been an expensive pain in the ass, I probably would have done a test run with applique (like I did on the circle/drop detail) or melting the edges into shape. It would have stiffened out the skirt, though, so.. idk!

Anyway take a look closely at the details in these pictures, you can definitely see the squareness and odd shaped points when you’re looking for them. I guess the key is, most people are not going to be looking that closely!

I got to do the BOOM! Box editorial doodles for the month of October!! Pick up this month’s issue of TEEN DOG (#2) or LUMBERJANES (#7) - which you should definitely be reading - and check out the spoopy doodles I did in the back!

I&#8217;m reblogging this again because, what the hell, they&#8217;re just doodles but it&#8217;s really cool to walk into any comic shop in the country and oh hey there&#8217;s my artwork!
