A cosplay tumblr for hhhhammy & gothichamlet

This is our costume tumblr for process pics, tutorials, and completed photosets. Hhhhammy specializes in props and pattern drafting, while gothichamlet prefers the design and sewing portion. We also sew a lot and spend a generously ridiculous amount of time doing dumb things. Any questions? Just drop us an ask!

pattern-making tip for cosplayers: when you know how a certain piece needs to look on your body, but aren’t sure how to pattern it out on fabric, pattern it on yourself first!
I use masking tape (with sheets of plasticwrap under, so I’m not sticking tape to my skin) to create a fitted body double that can get drawn all over. once it looks how I want it to, on me, I cut it off with a pair of scissors and discard everything but my pattern pieces, which can be either used or cut apart along where you’d want seam lines to go in order to make flat pieces. retrace onto some pattern/tracing/butcher paper and there’s your pattern.
