What makes cosplay so fun is that it requires skill in so many different disciplines!
here’s a progress shot of me ironing out my pieces of fabric before i block print the beetle pattern on it 🐞 it’s quite easy to be excited about sewing everything together and forget about the little things that really help make the costume look great! (like ironing out all the creases and planning which pieces to sew first)
to make the beetle patten, i created the pattern from a reference photo in adobe illustrator. then, i imprinted it onto a block printing rubber, and scooped out the relief. i’m using gold fabric paint to print the pattern out on the twill that i’m using for the yukata.
