Here’s the finished pattern for Sera’s vest! The boob part is left open since I wanted to share this with others who might be working on this, and everyone has different sized boobs.The pattern is missing the collar, a piece on the chest and the shoulder bits. I’ll be posting a separate pattern for those later!
I don’t have a scanner so this is the best I can do, sorry! I measured a few things myself and tried to make a makeshift ruler scale to help! In order to use this you need two of the shapes above - one regular and one flipped.
I give anyone full permission to create a vector or proper scaled pattern of this, provided they a) allow anyone and everyone to use them by providing them to the public b) share them for others to see and post a link in a reblog of this post, and finally c) credit me for originally making this pattern.
One more shot of my Usagi cosplay!
Series: Sailor Moon
Usagi Tsukino: Palaven Cosplay
My Usagi wig’s buns exploded, and without the right items to repair it, I had no choice but to buy a blue wig from the vendor’s hall. Instant Ami cosplay!

Had so much fun at Animethon this weekend!
I was Usagi for Saturday and some of Sunday. I couldn’t help it, I had to have a little fun with the ladies at Starbucks.
Sera is impulsive and revels in the moment. For her, it’s not about what’s right, it’s about what’s right now. In the Friends of Red Jenny, she humbled authority and had fun doing it. But now the nobility are being not just selfish but blind. War, demons, a torn sky: these are more than troubling—they’re terrifying. Fortunately, Sera and her “friends” can be frightening, too, and if she needs to put an arrow through some baddies so regular people can sleep at night, so be it. Sera fights for those caught in the middle, but she also needs order restored. The world has to be normal so she can play.
I AM READY FOR FUCKING ANYTHING
Bought all my fabrics for my Sera cosplay today! (Minus the plaid, anyway. It’s kicking my ass trying to find some suitable plaid.)
$33 alone on Shipping JESUS
I’ve learned my lesson from my Merrill cosplay. Don’t try to save money buying leather jackets from thrift stores, it’s just cheaper to buy pleather online. (I also feel a bit like a murderer while wearing my Merrill costume with the real leather and rabbit fur :S)
Finished styling my Sera wig so I decided to have a quick makeup test. I bought the wig when the only thing we had to go by were the concept art and the first trailer with the brief shot of her. If her hair is darker in-game, I’ll dye the wig darker or buy an entire new one to style.
I’m ill with a cough/cold right now so I’m a bit more flushed than I normally am. I also need better kohl to make the eyes pop out better and an actual nude lipstick.
I’m having flashbacks of the nightmare I had with the leatherworking I had to do for my Merrill costume. That costume actually killed my sewing machine. This better be easier or so help me.
Heck yeah, I have sufficient refs to work on my Sera cosplay now! (Thank you Bioware for hi-res close up beauty)
Green plaid pants though??!
I was SO glad when I saw the above quote. I think I’m going to like her a lot. I started my Merrill costume before DA:II was released and ended up loving her character, and I’m really happy that Sera will probably end up the same way, haha.
For some reason today, I got really nostalgic over my second ever cosplay. Philia Felice, Tales of Destiny. I made this forever and a half ago and thank god my skills have improved since.
It’s really embarrassing to look at, but at the same time I’m really proud of my past self for how well the belt turned out as well as my first try with applique! (and fabric dye but that never turns out well for me)
I’m thinking about remaking this costume again. I’ll actually be able to do it proper too, haha.
