The Medicine Seller’s box, from Toei’s “Mononoke” and “Ayakashi”.  I’m bringing this to Otakon! :DProp made by me, worn by Tatsu for photos.I made my first Medicine Seller cosplay back in 2009, but I didn’t have the box, so I’ve had plenty of time to ruminate over how to make it.  This would not have been possible without my late uncle, who taught me how to use his table-saw and put up with me making cosplay all over his back porch.The hardest part of this project was being bad at arithmetic >_>;

Question time!

How do you guys like to work on your cosplays?

Do you prefer trying to knock everything out in one sitting or do you like doing a little at a time over several weeks?

Do you plan/start weeks in advance or do you like the rush of doing things in a time crunch?

Do you have your friends over helping you or have sewing parties or do you mostly work alone?

Do you work in silence or do you like having music or other background noise?

I tend to work alone, sitting in the middle of my living room floor with either the TV on or music playing as background noise and attempt to sweatshop for 8-12 hours straight. This morning I was playing Orange Caramel and the new 15& and Mamamoo CD’s while working on my Catallena dress. I tend to like to have background noise that’s sort of themed to what I’m working on? When I’ve been working on Koumei I’ve had a lot of vampire movies and Percy Jackson playing in the background. I remember when I was working on Fushimi back in 2012 I was looping Fall Out Boy’s “I Don’t Care” hahaha.

So, how ‘bout y’all?

Finishing up my Orange Caramel Catallena cosplay for Otakon. All that’s left is hemming the skirt and adding the big bow on the back and fixing the top a bit since I have the dumbest proportions ever.
