I DO NOT sell nude or fetish shots.

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 6:43 AM
Since I get these kind of requests pretty much every day I thought it was time to make a little entry about this.
I consider myself an artist, not a fetishmodel (I know, I wear latex every now and then as well as corsets and high heels but I think they still cover everything and are just shiny, sparkly and pretty.). I like to wear clothes. I never did nudes and am not interested in it at all, even if it seems that some guys want to pay for it to have it in their "private collection".
Seriously. I like to earn my money with shooting pretty dresses and other things but I definitely won't sell any saucy photos to total strangers.

I don't even like to check my notes here any more because nearly all the messages are about commissioned (fetish-)photos, way too many details about the sexlife of people I never talked to before or dating requests. This is really annoying and every week I think I should just deactivate my account...
(Well, but I won't, no worries.  ...at least not yet)

Oh and by the way! I am NOT looking for (money-)slaves, dates or guys who want to skype with me. Not even if you are super rich! I barely have free time and if I have any I don't want to spend it talking to guys who just want to date me because they like my photos and think that "your boobs are so big <3 <3" is a good compliment to start with.
Also I don't want to see any photos of you being all nude and sexy and full of ... stuff. It is really nice that you think you would brighten up my day by sending me these things but personally I think one should at least ask first or have a proper conversation. Wich we definitely won't have if it is about this theme. In fact you might rather end up on my blocking list, especially if you are trying that twice.

Thanks for understanding.

Now back to normal life. Have a nice day everyone :)

gemstone tutorial

Wed Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.

That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.

.
.
.

How to work step by step:


STEP 1



What materials do you need:

- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)
- aluminium foil
- scissors


STEP 2



~ Note:
With water I could find out how much resin I needed later.
For more quantities, you can mark a line with a pencil on the cup. ~

For my stone I need only 1 tablespoon of resin (= 8g)
For more quantities the weight is important. See step 3


STEP 3



To get some colorful stones you can use tinting paint. I use a simple green color.
Sometimes you need one or two colortests to get the right mixture ratio.

For a beautiful transparent green I need a half-drop.
Mixing the tinting paint with the resin thoroughly.

When you are finished you can add the hardener. For the stone, it was about 10 drops.
Each resin has a guide with a resin-hardener mixture ratio. For more quantities, you can calculate out at the scale of how much you need to mix hardener based on the weight.  Otherwise, simply by touch.
Mix it again now.


STEP 4



Pour everything in the mold of your choice. With the spoon you can get every last drop out of the cup.

Tip: if you have too much resin in the cup, pour it into a second form. So all is well used.


STEP 5



Cut out the foil a rough shape of the stone. Something bigger than the stone itself!
And put it on it.

Now just wait until everything is fixed.
Tip: A warm place speed up the drying.

STEP 6



In approximately less than an hour the stone should be completely dry.
Take it out of the mold. If it is still a little sicky dry it with a hair dryer. Wait 5 minutes and cut the excess foil.

The stone is done ❤

I've just been listening to some music, and RPing, and I have to say...at the end of the day, it wasn't a bad day. Bad things could have happened, but it was't a bad day. I can look forward tomorrow, too. I don't think that much can go wrong, at least not enough to get me riled up.



This is really amazing. I'm listening to this at almost 4:30 in the morning and it's making me LESS tired.

historic corset tutorial

Thu May 2, 2013, 12:55 PM
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :twitter: Naraku on Twitter ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊


After serveral requests, I decided to upload a tutorial for my absinthe corset today. As you can see I used the same pattern for my steampunk corset dress Mademoiselle Émeraude Steam.

This tutorial shows an elaborate corset. Patterns can be found on the Internet at Burda / Simplicity or even online shops about historical patterns and corsets.
Many steps can be used for a simple corsage. The steps are noted with three hearts (❤ ❤ ❤).
A corsage tutorial will come this year too. You can find all information on my FB page.

And now Step by Step „How to make a historic corset":


Step 1 ❤❤❤



What materials do you need:

- Pattern of your choice
- Different fabrics (solid cotton, patterned fabric and as desired: taffeta)
- Thread, needles and scissors
- Eyelets
- Corset bone (more information in Step 9)
- various cords and ribbons


Step 2 ❤❤❤



First you copy the pattern on the fabrics and cut it out.
The corset requires 3 to 4 layers of fabric. We will be using a lot of boning. Consequently the material has to be able to carry a lot of weight. Through the many layers of fabric we prevent holes and rapid wear.

Tip: Draw all the lines and marks on the middle layers of fabric (shown here in white cotton).


Step 3 ❤❤❤



Divide the material into 2 categories:
Corset 1 – outer fabric (patterned fabric) with a center fabric (white cotton)
Corset 2 – inner fabric (taffeta) with a center fabric (white cotton)

Now you can pin each corset and sew all the pieces of fabric together. Here the painted lines on the center fabric (white cotton) will be helpful.
Just a hint: Corsets and some corsages have ALWAYS larger seam allowances.

In the end we have two corsets.




Step 4



In case that you haven't transfered all lines of the pattern onto the fabric - do it now.
Use a simple and long stitch and sew over these lines. No sealing or double step stitch required.

Tip: sew the lines ONLY on the inner fabric. (see Step 8)


Step 5



This step requires more time and attention.
Place the two corsets onto each other.
The seam allowances have to be opened. With an iron it's completely fix.

If the corset fits perfectly (seam to seam), then you can sew the right and left selvage together.
The upper side with the straps and the lower side with the curve remain open.


Step 6 ❤❤❤



To prevent the fabrics from shifting, pin the freshly stitched selvage and sew a small line.

In preparation for the eyelet and lacing, sewn 3 more lines. It is divided into:
Corset bone – eyelet – corset bone

Tip: Put a little piece of corset bone next to you for all lines. So you are sure that everything fits later.


Step 7



As in Step 6, lay all seams together. Sew directly on the seam everything together.
Now nothing can slip.


Step 8



Sew all lines along on the inner fabric. They are now seen on the outer fabric.
You can undo the older seam, if you want to.

Follow this line and sew step by step all so-called bone tunnel. The corset bones will be inserted in there.


Step 9 ❤❤❤



Bones has many variations and are very important for the corset.
Here are 3 types.

From top to bottom:
- fabric bone
- plastic bone
- metal bone

~ The fabric bone is available in any fabric store. But it's no good for a corset or a corsage.
There is a ribbon with a thin plastic / nylon threads.
The boning is weak and bends rather easily. It is also not possible to bend it into specific shapes or lines

~ The plastic bone is very stiff in the contrary to the metal bone. It can cut it with scissors and don't break or warp so easy. For a corsage or a corset it is ideal.
The more bones is taken, the more stiff will be the top. Advantage: it is cheaper and lighter than the metal bones.
Other variations can be found in wood / bamboo.

~ The metal bone is the most used boning. It is available as a strap or as a spiral spring strap (see picture). They are the plastic bone on the qualities very close.
Disadvantage: you need a tin snips, end caps and can be more expensive.
Advantage: they are flexible despite the weight, keep the most traction and remain in the bent form, if necessary.

I prefer plastic and metal. But it depends on the corset and the person who wears is.


Step 10 ❤❤❤



Cut the boning in the right length.
The important thing is: The corset is closed in the end (see the seam on the bottom selvage). To prevent needle breakage, the boning must be shorter than the length of the tunnel. At least one seam allowance above and below.

Do you cut off all bones (and possibly put the caps), then push it into the tunnel.
Close with a seam the bottom and top selvage. So the bones can't slip out.

Tip: Just take your thumb or forefinger as a measure tape.


Step 11 ❤❤❤



Time for a beautiful (useful) decoration Part 1:

Take a beautiful bias tape and sew it on to the fabric. Turn down the bias tape around the edge and sew it again.
Who can sew around the curve or is uncertain, may at any time to sew the bias tape by hand.

Note: Various bias tape tutorial will also follow this year.


Step 12 ❤❤❤



Beautiful decoration Part 2:

If you want, you can always sew beautiful laces, ribbons or other onto the bias tape.


Step 13 ❤❤❤



The final step!
Everything is sewn and the decorations are attached to the corsets. Up next we'll insert the eyelets.

Mark the places on which you'd like to insert the eyelets from the inside.
With a punch pliers, a nail scissors or an unstitcher you cut the holes.
Uses the eyelets and seals them.
You can use a tongs or a hammer.


Threaded into the cord and have fun!

Time for me: 2-3 days

 ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :twitter: Naraku on Twitter ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊



After my dear friend :iconaigue-marine: (and a lot of other people before) asked me, how I make my appliques, I thought: hey, you work at a costume with this appliques again. I can make a tutorial!

And here you see step by step how I make on a easy way all my appliques.

.
.
.

What do you need:
- paper, pencil and scissors (maybe a rubber)
- fabric and thread
- Interfacing /Interfacing double-sided and a iron
- sewing mashine/ needle

How to work step by step:

STEP 1



Sew or compose your costume, as you need it.
If you know where the pattern to be sewn on it: take the fabric or the pattern for step 3 as a template

STEP 2



Take (old) paper, a sketch of the costume as an overview and pens for drawing

STEP 3



Copy the fabric or the pattern on the paper.
Then draw the desired pattern as a template onto the paper.

STEP 4



Cut and sort everything ^. ~

STEP 5



Reinforce your fabric with interfacing. It must not go off!

STEP 6



Draw with the template your pattern on the fabric and cut them roughly (!).

STEP 7



Set your machine to a zigzag. This can be nearly look like this.
Sew all the lines along the fabric. This can sometimes take a little longer. So be patient.

STEP 8



The pattern looks like this, once you've sewed it. Sometimes you have to iron it then.

STEP 9



Cut it out carefully. In this case you may not cut the seam, otherwise everything goes on.

STEP 10



Cut all the threads.

STEP 11



Place the pattern on the costume / the fabric. You can clue it or get pin up.
In double-sided interfacing just put it ironed, then it will not slip.
Sew a second time with the zigzag along the pattern.

STEP 12



TADAAAAAA your applique is done!

.
.

Braid tutorial

Sat Dec 8, 2012, 1:07 PM
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊
 ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :twitter: Naraku on Twitter ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊


Today I show you how to sew a wide braid. Most cosplayers have the problem that our character has a pattern, a braid or similar to his clothes that are simply not exist to buy.
With this little tutorial you have one of many ways to solve this problem completeley.

Today my costume is from Sakizou of the artbook "Romantic jewels - Gentleman"
Character: Prince Emerauld

Have a look what the braid looks like.



.
.
.

How to work step by step:

STEP 1



What materials do you need:

fabric (here I use cotton)
Interfacing
Bias tape
metallic- / decorative thread
Fabric Paints (gold, copper and olive green)
paper pattern (make some copies from your original!!)
Scissors, pencils and Co.


STEP 2



The first step is the same as in the appliqué tutorial.
Irons interfacing onto the back of your fabric.
It shouldn't come off.


STEP 3



Draw the number of stripes on the back of the fabric you need. Use a pencil, biro or something else.

Done? Paint the colour on it next.


STEP 4



Now cut and draw the copy of your pattern.
(NEVER cut the original!)

You can also draw the pattern before the gold paint.


STEP 5



IMPORTANT: Before you sew, paint and begin the pattern - first makes a test!

STEP 6



The test was a success?
Then you can start stitch the frame for example with zigzag (see appliqué tutorial)


STEP 7



If you have sewn everything you want to sew, it is time for a little paint.
With Brush and fabric color paint all remaining surfaces and patterns.


STEP 8



For fast work uses a system. Much like on an assembly line.

STEP 9



As long as the border dries, you can start with the bias tape.
I prefer to paint bias tape in the color I need.
So I have the same shade as the rest of the border or have the color I need.


STEP 10



The paint on the border and on the bias tape is dry?
Then you have to combine it yet * _ *

Feel free to use the decorative / metallic thread.


STEP 11



And so it looks finished.
Congratulations - you made your own border
