I wanted a place where I could put all the creative things my boyfriend, Ryan, and I, Ash, (thus "rash"), make. so this tumblr was created. eventually we want to make clothing but this tumblr will be more than that. it will be customs as well with a bit of things we like thrown in. that is about it.
So Ryan has been posting his 3DM Gear progress recently and I figured I would show the small contribution to the Attack on Titan group I have made so far.
One down (except for the patch on the back, I still need to get that), two to go. XD
So we recently celebrated our anniversary. Unlike last year I’m not going to make a bunch of different posts with pictures. Just these two.
We decided to get dressed up in a somewhat disney-bound fashion (I’ll explain in a second) and go to the theater. We ended up seeing the We Will Rock You musical at the Fisher and we both rather enjoyed it!
Outfit wise I saw that dress and fell in love with it! With the color and the ribbon tied in the front it reminded me of Wendy Darling from Peter Pan (which I am a huge fan of), so to please me instead of wearing a blue shirt to match me for the night Ryan went out and bought himself the green shirt as his nod to Peter. Thus the second picture of him lifting me for no reason. xD
We ended up getting a lot of compliments from the older people in the audience and some crew, that we looked really nice, I think they appreciated that we dressed up to go to the theater. All in all, it was a wonderful night! :D
(On a side note the gloves I’m wearing I actually bought a couple years ago for a Wendy cosplay that I never did, so it was nice to finally get to wear them)
I don’t have a whole lot of other progress to show on my 3dmg presently (making two more of the same, whoopideedoo), but I figured I’d post these for those who may need/want to use them. I took the original screen cap from the SnK anime and vectored it into these hi-res handle references! As an added bonus (aside from getting two images to cut up rather than just one), once printed out full-page on 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper, it’s pre-scaled to be approximately the right size. Hope it helps!
Our friend decided a last minute trip to Wal-Mart was in order and I’m so glad she did! :D
Oh my god please allow me to love you forever. I love love love love Saber Marionette J. Your cosplays are incredible. I'm actually hoping to do Lime one day in the future.
Oh my *blush* you can love us forever if you want. We won’t try and stop you.
Saber Marionette J was one of the first animes I watched (that wasn’t on Adult Swim at the time) and I just adored it. It holds a speical place in my heart. Lol. There are a few adjustments I want to make to Lime but I am very glad you like them so much! <3
You should totally do Lime! Saber Marionette J doesn’t get enough love and it would be awesome to see another one
Our (mostly finished) Saber Marionette J cosplays! That we wore to Armageddicon.
After trying to wear it I realize there are a lot of things I have to tweak with Lime, however Hanagata is pretty much set! :D
Still working on the Cherry for our group and hopefully once they are all completed we can have a proper photoshoot, which would be fun.
Also as a bonus a close up of my Lime shoes, because I think Ryan did a wonderful job on them! (They even squeak when I walk) :3

It’s going until the 4th. My brother is going so he can take more!
Haha guysss! I’m still doing all no matter how many!
24 hours left!
So recently as some of you may know I had to figure out how to make these green arm wraps in the picture below
I wanted them to be one piece so that they wouldn’t have to be adjusted throughout the day if parts decided to slip, especially since the original plan was to tuck the shirt into them, *edit: l guess it should be added that we wanted something that not only wouldn’t have to be adjusted but something that wouldn’t have to be wrapped and was made of a more durable cloth like material.* I searched the internet for a while but couldn’t find anything too helpful so I decided to make it up as I went along and took pictures so I could share in the event it worked. (It did)
This process should work for just about any wrap you want to create for instance things like this as well…
There isn’t much to it but I took a lot of pictures, so here we go.
First things first, you’ll want to wrap what ever part of your body you are making the wrap for in plastic wrap (we use this method frequently). Mine was just the forearm so it looked like this
Then wrap it again in tape, masking tape works nicely.
After that you want to draw where the seam is going to be and cut along it like so
Once you have the piece disconnected from your body you want to flatten it, I placed my piece under a pile of binders for about a day
While you are waiting you can get started on the strips of fabric you’ll be using later. Figure out how thick you want the bands to look and measure them out of the fabric you are using
Don”t forget to add a seam allowance, like I did. The length of the strips doesn’t really matter right now, as long as it’s long enough to wrap around your arm once you should be fine. I cut out 12 to be on the safe side. You should have something like this.
Once I had the strips cut out I folded the seam allowance over on all of them, this made it easier later when I attached them to the main piece.
You can then put the strips to the side and go back to the main pattern piece. For the forearm it should look something like this once flattened
You’ll want to clean up the edges with the plastic hanging off and then transfer the pattern piece onto a piece of paper, again making sure to add seam allowance around the edges.
Once you’ve traced around the whole thing you can cut it out and that will be the pattern for the main piece of your arm wrap. Use the pattern to cut out a piece in the fabric you are using and together with your straps your pieces should look like this.
You want to sew on the strips one at a time, starting from one end then making your way to the other. I started from the bottom. Pin the strip onto the main piece along the hem you already created like this
You then want to sew the strip down along the top and bottom edge. There will be fabric hanging off from the strip, you want your seam to stay in between the edges of the main piece. After that is sewn on cut off any extra material from the strip.
It should look something like this
Continue with the other strips. I attached mine diagonally for the most part. When I was done attaching my strips (I only used 6) this is what I had.
Sew your side seams together.
And then hem the top and bottom.
Viola! You should have an arm (body) wrap that you won’t have to wrap!
(I didn’t hem the top because I attached it directly to the shirt)
Also it should be noted stretch material should probably be used.
Hope it helps someone! :)
