needlework & costumes

I've been cosplaying since 2008 and making my own costumes since 2012. I didn't start doing "serious" needlework until around 2015. I'm mostly self-taught through tutorials, trial-and-error, and asking friends and other hobbyists for help! I have worn over 60 costumes and make a majority of them by hand. That being said - I'm still working on organizing all of my work on here! For now I've listed some previews of some of my favourite costumes to date. All costumes below were made by me!
