Megamind's pajamas + slippers: WIP

Hi all! *waves* I've made a bit of progress on my cosplay of Megs's jammies and bat slippers, so I thought I'd share it here. :3 These are much simpler to make than my other cosplay, thankfully. <3

Here are a couple previews:






I'll start with the slippers; they were easier to do! ^__^ I just sketched the little bat-wing shapes onto craft foam and fleece and cut them out, then glued the fleece pieces on the front of the craft foam pieces (for stability). I handsewed them on, and used regular 3D craft paint for the beady little eyes. Here are the bat wings, and then the finished slippers:





And I didn't make the pajama base, just altered it a little (to fit me and to fit Megs's a little better) and added the iron-on symbols to them. I haven't finished the bottoms or collar yet, but here's the top:



And in case you missed it, my last post had links to the iron-on symbols in PNG and PDF formats. :)

Thanks for looking! ILU guys~ <3

Thanks Grindy! And yes, haha, you can't tell at all what someone's build is under these things. Unless they're, like, kids' size or something.

Those slippers are too cute! And the jammies are coming out fantastic! I can't believe how well those iron-on symbols work! I thought they would come out faded or blotchy. Apparently the iron-on paper has gotten much better since the last time I used it.

AWESOME JOB EMMA!!!!!!

Thanks so much Tabby! ^__^ <33 And yes, I was so nervous to use these iron-ons, but they turned out nice and vibrant. And I'm glad I didn't follow the directions on the pack. :3 (It said to use the highest cotton setting for 1 minute on each applique--yikes!) Although I did melt one or two because I bumped them with the iron. >.> OOPS YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT (*puts a new one on*)

Yay!! <3

OMG...that pajama is LOVELY...
And speaking of which...yesterday I got a pair of slippers that are perfect for the bat slippers.
And I hope that this Thursday at the city market I will find the pajama.
Either way there is internet XD

Of course ^_^
I even bought a new printer because the symbols must be printed with an ink-jet printer and no printshop in my city had it...ugh...oh well...anyway I needed a new printer XD

O.o OMFG that's amazing!! You're my hero!! (More than before, I mean...). If I have got this pajamas I feel bad for sleeping with and became wrinkled ._.U

Sep. 21st, 2011 05:56 am (UTC)
Hee, thanks! :D

And yeah, I'm not sure yet how I'll deal with the inevitable peeling/cracking of the iron-ons...guess I'll be handwashing these pajamas for a while. ;)

Ee, thanks so much Pat!! ^__^ *glomps* ILU too~~ C:

Ooh, a video? Maybe I will, if I can find a decent place for a tripod! :) (My camera is a bit crap at taking hand videos, as you can probably tell from the DE-gun videos, haha--BLAIR WITCH PROJECT COSPLAY HERE WE COME!)

This is awesome! If you were to sell a copy, how much would they cost? XD I would totaly buy a set from you. I also kind of want his cape to go with it too lol
legendaryair
Sep. 21st, 2011 06:06 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! C: I'd be happy to take commissions for jammies and/or slippers, if you don't mind buying them online and shipping them to me! Then you can be sure to get the right size (plus they don't sell them in any physical store I know of). ;) But I don't think I could live through making another cape with the lightning bolts--painting those just about killed my poor hands... XD (A plain black-and-blue one would be simple though.) PM me (hover over my icon and click "send message") if you're interested and we'll chat! :3

Eeeeee! So cuuuute!

Yeah, like some others, I was wondering if you take commissions. There's an anime convention coming up near me in October (Nashua NH, called Another Anime Con) and I need something to wear. I'm torn between something anime-related or something from Megamind, even though it's more of a comic book than an anime it's still animated, right?
legendaryair
Sep. 21st, 2011 06:10 am (UTC)
Thanks, DQ! ^__^ <33

Yep, I certainly do commissions. I don't think I could easily do these in time for an October con, though, since you'd have to order the stuff online (like I did, hehe), and then you'd have to wait a couple weeks for me to make and ship them. (I'm a full-time Master's student and I work too, lol...where is my liiiife) ;) Shoot me a message if you want some for the future though! <3

I wanna snuggle the shit out of you. Bwahaha.

These are really great. It's pretty easy to say that I think the slippers are PRECIOUS AND PERFECT. And the everything else looks comfy, and the you looks adorable.

Keep making completely awesome/sexy/adorable things! I so encourage it!
