Welcome to Craf-TAY Corner, the monthly feature that showcases the creative side of Talk Amongst Yourselves. If you do any kind of creative or crafty pursuits, here's the place to talk about your ongoing and upcoming projects. Whether it's cosplay or papercrafts, drawing or sewing, building models or pixel art, we want to hear about it!
May was not as productive as I would have liked in terms of working on my poor Bayonetta doll. The month started strong when I got about 85% of her face repainted, but then everything devolved into constantly dealing with appointments and hearings and interviews, and then dealing with insomnia for the past week or so. The last couple of steps are lining her eyes and eyebrows, adding the eyeshines, sealing the paint and adding some gloss on her lips. In reality it's only a couple of hours of work, but they're the most important parts, and when your lines look like you were drawing during an earthquake, it's better just to put off the rest of the work. So I'll probably get her painted this week, just not in time to do Craf-TAY Corner.
Also, now that the 99% of the things having to do with Denver Comic Con are taking care of, I can finally start work on my new cosplay. Ideally I'd like to have it done by Nan Desu Kan in September, but more realistically it'll probably be just my Halloween costume. I won't say what it is yet, but I can't imagine you'll ever guess what it'll be. Even if you have a clue, you're only skimming the tip of the ice burg of my concept. All I can say is that if I do it right, it'll blow last year's Mana Mana costume out of the water.
So what have you guys been up to? It was a bittersweet ending to Pokemon a Day, done by the lovely and overachieving Stormborn, but what other things have you been working on? Any new projects you want to talk about? Any new ideas you want to test on here on ol' TAY? Remember, if you want your project featured on Craf-TAY Corner, remember to tag it as such! If you don't, I can't find it (especially since I only get access to TAY maybe twice a week. And yes, I am working on getting new internet.) So if you haven't been featured before, it's not because I don't like you, it's because I simply didn't see your thread. You can also just tell me directly you want to get featured by letting me know on my ConTAYct Page.
