Pearl Steven Universe Cosplay Tutorial Masterpost with Crocheted Spear Pattern!




I met so many wonderful people at Colossal Con this past weekend and a lot of them requested info on my Pearl cosplay so here you go! I did a write up of the crochet pattern for the staff/spear, how I styled/added the point to the wig, and how to make the outfit with little to no sewing. Don't let yourself be intimidated by the wig modification/styling, it's not as bad as it seems! If you want to make a Pearl cosplay on a budget this is the post for you! Bird mom's got your back! <3

Big thanks to Rynn of All Trades Designs for making me look awesome! Check out her Colossal Con album here!

Super long post after the cut!

Over the Garden Wall Crochet Frog and Teapot Hat Pattern





Paging Dr. Cucumber! This will be my Over the Garden Wall crochet pattern masterpost thingy! (If you haven't seen it yet drop everything and go watch it!) The frog pattern was made by one of the production assistants for OTGW and it is absolutely a thing of beauty! I used Little Black Marker's alterations for the hands and feet and also supersized the whole pattern so now the frog is crazy super big! It is truly a statement frog! Everyone will be jealous of you!
The teapot hat is a pattern I made up myself and wrote down on the off chance anyone else needs it. I know traditionally you would make the teapot out of paper mache but personally I would break something like that on the first opportunity. A crocheted teapot also means it can be smashed down flat for travel or storage and it is super light and easy to attach to your head w/bobby pins! 

More info and patterns for the frog, teapot hat, and cosplay outfit after the break!

Cardcaptor Sakura Staff Wand Crochet Pattern


After all, you have an invincible spell now: "I'm sure I'll be alright!"

Saw this adorable pattern for a Cardcaptor Sakura wand/staff pen by Mia  and had to use it to make a life size one! I've always wanted one of these since I was little but they are crazy expensive (and small)! You can make your own for less than $10 and about 4-5hrs of work!

Captain America Shield backpack/toy/pillow




A pretty easy pattern for a simple Captain America shield backpack/bag that could also be easily made into a toy or throw pillow instead. Shoulder strap is removable so shield can be worn on arm to facilitate jumping about your home and feeling pretty badass. As a bonus shield is soft and can be thrown without causing too much collateral damage.

Meathead Kaiju Pacific Rim Crochet Pattern


Precious meathead baby <3 I've wanted to make a kaiju pattern ever since I made Lemmyloop's beautiful Otachi. After reading the "From Out of the Ocean Risen" series by bluestar I knew that kaiju had to be Meathead. Hope you enjoy, fellow Kaiju Groupies!
