The Faithful BrideMore Like This
As with many things seen from a distance (particularly buildings though), The Faithful Bride Inn was much bigger up close, and was nearly bursting at the seams with patrons, just as bad if not worse than the place he ran away from. Stowed away from to be specific. He pushed open the heavy wooden door, the ting! of the little door-bell lost in the tsunami of chattering, raucous cackles of both men and women, shouts for refills, and the occasional snatch of song, which was sometimes joined by the group at the table of the inspired singer, or the little, lone voice sang on it’s own a few bars, then faded away. Jack looked around trying to find an empty table, and gave up after two good scans of the room. And, if it’s this full down here, he thought, there’s probably no hope of getting a room for the night. To tell the truth, he was relieved that there was no place for him here. It was just another way to tie himself do
A Dark and Stormy NightLightening and thunder continued their endless debate across the night sky. Spidery white cracks zigzagged across the dark firmament, illuminating it into a surreal bastardization of day. The ramshackle buildings, the beach, all eight fishing boats and one merchant ship in the harbour, as well as the small group of sailors employed on aforementioned merchant ship all were clothed in the neon purple light for an instant. It had scarcely faded before an ear-splitting crash of thunder caused some of the men to flinch and all of them to curse.More Like This
A typical night on the island of Tortuga, the year of grace 17- , when sailors have found a stowaway aboard and are making their way to the nearest magistrate in the middle of a storm.
One burly, bearded rogue, who appeared to be the leader of the bunch, hammered rudely on the door of the office of the honourable Judge Daniel Webster Esq. His honour was somewhat of a prodigy of law at the tender age of sixteen winters, but now over two score years la

Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves TutorialHello again!More Like This
This is the tutorial for the sleeves of her dress. It is debatable whether or not her sleeves are attached to her top or not. I personally made them separate because It would be even more constricting than it already is XD. I would have liked to made the top of my sleeves a little bigger and I may redo them- but that's for something else. :3
In my first initial post about Ahri's top I posted a picture of the patterns I made, the stencil on the left is the one I made for the sleeve. I know it looks big, but it should! You want to leave enough room at the top and the bottom of the sleeve so it will flair out.
--- As always, pics coordinating with numbers! <3 ---
What you will need:
* Red fabric (I used satin)
* Red thread
* A strip of your white fabric
* Your fabric paints
* Paint brushes and some water/ a paper towel or two
* Optional; Wire (used to shape the top of the sleeves)
First you will make your pattern, measure the top of your arm and stretch it out so that you
Ahri Cosplay - Tails TutorialHi again loves!More Like This
So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)
*Firm Foam (I cut mine appropriately) (2)
*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro
First you will decide how large you want your t

----I will correspond the bottom pictures with the points below----
You can start by taking your measurements- using the pattern method from the shirt create a pattern. Make sure to make the pattern about 2 inches larger than you are to allow enough space for sewing/breathe room. It is also important that you make sure to make the top layer of the skirt larger at the bottom so that it sticks out in the nice points like she does in game
I made my skirt in 2 different pieces. The top half and the bottom half.
1) First I will talk about the bottom half of the skirt;
I first created two pieces to sew together in the front and the back (The seems wil
