I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I was able to update! I actually had an issue being able to update

the page, but it’s all fixed and I’ve been doing a LOT of sewing and taking lots of pics! I’ve added

3 new costumes to the Cosplay gallery, and have shot 3 more costumes that I’ll be adding very soon, along with a few new commissions!

As always, many more photos as well as clothing I make for myself & other sewing projects on my Instagram, AmazonMandy!

 

Magda

 

 

Magda is a character in season 2 of Penny Dreadful. She’s a demon, but this dress was something I immediately fell in love with! I want to wear this dress all of the time!

Rob Somers Photo and I got really lucky finding a town full of vintage buildings and a foggy morning, so we were able to get some really great photos!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Papa Emeritus III

 

 

THIS was a random costume I decided to make myself for a Halloween party! I’m a bit obsessed with Ghost, and while I love all of the Papa’s, Papa Emeritus III is the hot one. I just decided to make myself a gender swapped Papa costume! I love wearing it, it was so much fun, I look forward to wearing it when Halloween is something we can all actually celebrate, again! (hey 2020!).

 

 

 

 

 

 



Rose the Hat

 

 

I was highly skeptical about a sequel to the Shining. After reading Doctor Sleep, boy was I wrong. It was fantastic, and the movie somehow made just the improvements that made it perfect!

I LOVE Rose. She’s so beautiful and bad. I did the best I could, I didn’t sew the dress but just purchased and altered pieces to complete this one! Just a fun personal project for myself. And the dress is a permanent part of my wardrobe, now!

I also threw this outfit of hers together, I made the leggings just because I really love a LOT of Roses clothing!

August 25, 2020

As usual, most current updates happen on Instagram, so things fall behind here!
I updated both Commissions with new items, and Cosplay with 3 new costumes!

I also have completed shoots of 3 new costumes and have 3 more in progress, so there
should be more updates coming in, very soon!

 

 

Ryoko Bunny!

 

 

 

ANOTHER Ryoko costume. What can I say, I love her so much. I did a quick bunnygirl costume of hers in time for a Spring shoot out of scrap fabrics I already had around! It was fun! Pics by ScoundrelPhoto!

 

 



DragonLady

 

This was an original, independent piece of art by the artist Juyoung Ha. The minute I saw it I fell in love with it, and wanted to make it.

Honestly, I struggled with this one by the end. I had started it in the summer of 2019, and due to major life events it got put on hold for months. I picked it up and worked on it here and there, working on other costumes in between to keep from burning out. By the time I finished it 13 months later, I was mostly just relieved it was completed.

The main body is a soft stretch lycra, airbrushed. The costume consists of EVA and craft foam, latex, PVC….the feet are shoes I repurposed, originally from my Draenei cosplay. The horns took 2 tries, but are incredibly light weight and stay in place perfectly! The tail moves, and is controlled by a small remote control!

Overall, it turned out pretty well & I’m happy w it. But I didn’t love it as much as I expected to. I think it’s a problem with proportion. Obviously I’m not as long & slender as that art, but the costume itself is adding a bit of bulk so it makes me feel bulkier over all? First, there’s the big belt hidden inside the waist of the costume that holds the mechanical tail in place. Then the entire chest/shoulder piece adds so much size. The shoes had to be bulkier than her feet just to hold me up/add height….I think sometimes I get an unrealistic expectation of how I imagine it vs what it takes to make an impossible design wearable. I thought it would replace the War Rig as a fav–It didn’t! 🙂 

 


Admittedly, this photo isn’t too terribly different than the first. We were doing the best that we could with the very limited space we had to use.
Once Covid has passed, I plan on taking this somewhere for a lot of new photos!

 

Winter Witch

This was an original design I completed in winter of 2019, but had to wait a full year to shoot it! We finally had one really good, beautiful snow in 2020, and I took advantage of it! Rob Somers Photography took these, and I love the atmosphere in them.

All of the feathers of this costume were cruelty-free, ethically harvested. The skirt is solid feathers, with added feathers accenting the rest of the costume.The corset has an overlay of a velvet lace, the ribs are hand sculpted. It was a cold shoot, but worth it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




I might have to save this one away for Halloween……
