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!
Just wanted to let you know that I had a really nice day today. Nothing special happened. I went to work, then karate, then came home. But I just had a really nice day and I was (and still am) in a really lovely mood and I just wanted you all to know.
I hope you are also having a lovely day. If not, I hope some of my good mood can find its way to you.
Welcome to our firstTutorial Tuesday on the Official Home of Repeat til CRYYYYY!!!
This week’s crafty idea is how to pattern a chest plate/torso armour from scratch without any help!!!
Tip: to keep your pattern symmetrical and avoid wonky titties, draw everything on a folded piece of paper. Then you can unfold the pattern to get a symmetrical design. (I didn’t do this… so you can notice my titties are a little wonky D: D: D: )We made some man-titties/pecs with this pattern in the photos. But you can use these exact same steps to make booby plates too.
The only difference in making booby plates will be:
You will draw round boobies in Step 2
Your underboob line in Step 3 will be a tiny bit curvier
In Step 5 you’ll be adding more darts under that underboob line
Comments and questions are 9000% welcome <3
Happy crafting. Remember to CUT THE BITCHES, and most importantly, Repeat Til Cry! Now, let’s go make some freehand tittays!
