TUTORIAL TUESDAY: Freehand Patterning Chest Armour

G’day Wirrudos!!
Welcome to our first Tutorial 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!

Bakugou Katsuki – The salty shit that grew on me

Bakugo to me in a sentence is: I AM CONSTANTLY ANGRY BUT AT THE CORE I’M A GOOD GUY WITH A RIGHTEOUS HEART BUT FUCK YOU ALL DIE DIE DIE.

Look I couldn’t stand Bakugou at first. But recently he’s finally grown on me.

His character from the get go was set up to go down the “Sasuke” path so hard – the whole ‘being a genius, then having his derpy friend suddenly become a strong rival, then wanting to be stronger but suffers defeat so feels even more salty, then just at the most vulnerable moment villains come try convert him to evil” thing.

Ak Wirru
WHO THE FUCK JUST CALLED ME SASUKE??!??!

So I’m really proud of him for not going down that Sasuke path because I was dreading having to deal with that. I admire the author so much for not writing him down that path. Instead, Bakugou is given a strong friendship with Kirishima, someone who’s not his main rival, and a precious relationship with his parents that help keep him grounded from turning villain.

This also opens him up to become a very fresh rival/anti-hero type character: he doesn’t go evil, he doesn’t get an edgy tormented childood, he’s pure at heart and very straightfoorward with himself… he’s JUST A LITTLE SALTY PIECE OF SHIT!

Monster Hunter World, Field Team Leader leatherwork

G’day Wirrudos!

mmm…. butt

Here’s a closer look at the leatherwork parts on my Field Team Leader costume. This was such a fun project for me to go entirely organic and leather. The flavor of the Monster Hunter World world suited my crafting style really well.
I’ll eventually put my entire project log on here.

But for now,  let the abridged layers of hell begin:

detail embossing hell
texture embossing hell
dyeing hell
hand stitching hell! NO MACHINE SEWING HERE D:
… YESSSSSSSSS DONE!!!! Time to rest hands…
