G’Day Tutorial Tuesday~
Today’s we’re revisiting the HAIRY BANANA, a cost-free method to make a pulled back hair line and/or side-burn onto any wig.
You can use the hairy banana to create all the weird-ass anime hair lines and pretty much any patches of hair on the face. It doesn’t even have to be a banana.
This can be a cheap DIY alternative to lace front wigs or as a quicker (less repeat til cry) alternative to making your own wefts!
Banana making notes:
~ Clear fabric glue or wig glue is the best for this
~ Contact adhesive also can work (just be careful of yellow stains)
~ Glue stick is my preferred way to secure wigs to my skin because it is non toxic, water washable so it won’t ruin the wig in the long term
~ Eyelash glue and wig tape are other options
Now we can all be hot men!!!

G’DAY Tutorial Tuesday!
Have you ever sewn a costume with side slits, flaps, coat tails, *insert other splitty things*… and all you end up with are squiggly squid flaps?
I HAVE A TIP FOR YOU!
^ the above example is using a hemmed costume. If you are lining your costume, simply follow up to Step 2 and then stop. Do the same on both the outer piece and lining piece.
Then match up the cuts and sew them together like normal. It should match up nicely and flip out neatly too.
Bahamut turns 1 today.
We celebrated very appropriately: hanging out with Lady HIGH Summoner.
Last year today, after 7 months of labor, Bahamut was born early at Oz Comic Con SYDNEY 2017.
When I was chosen as national champion to represent Australia in the global championship in Chicago, I shoved him back into the womb (my living room) and kept birthing him for another 7 months. Making him a 14 month baby in total.
This project started off as my personal challenge in 2017 and became so much more.
He’s heavy. He took a long time. He’s troublesome to bring to any event. He’s larger than our house. The cats like to sleep in him so I can’t even wear him anymore without getting my lungs fucked up from allergies.
But he’s been made with all of my love for Final Fantasy X, and all of my pride as a craftsmanship-focused cosplayer.
Thanks to this project, I’ve made so many great memories (and war flashbacks) with my close friends and the Australian (and hopefully global) community.
This project also ultimately help me realise what kind of cosplayer and craftsman I truly want to be.
Happy birthday my oversized dragon child.
I equally love and hate you.
You’ll always be my only oversized child because fuck making things larger than my house ever again. ❤

I love this shot of us taken during our first outdoor shoot of Bahamut after coming home from C2e2 Global Championships. It was the first time I put him on since coming home, we hadn’t seen him unpacked from his bags until this moment and we were all just excited that he survived going to AND from Chicago without a scratch.
I sure made him tough, huh!
