Greetings Gotham!! Puddin and I have set up a tiny indiegogo for our Mad Love fan film! We are mainly trying to raise funds to be able to pay our crew and to help build our set and props.
We are not asking much, and I hope our perks can entice you! At the very least we hope you can share our campaign with your friends and family to help get the word out!
More about the project:
What we are aiming to do with this project is produce a short fan film of the warehouse scene from the Batman comic/animated series episode Mad Love. This project is important to us as the characters of the Joker and Harley Quinn are very dear to our hearts. Ever since I was a little girl, I have held an adoration and connection to Harley Quinn! It would mean a lot to us to be able to do the characters justice on film!
Our script is adapted from both the comic and the episode from Batman: the Animated Series.
We are committed to bringing these characters and this story to light in the best quality possible. We will be doing our best to emulate the feel of the Joker’s hideout and the dead of Gotham City night through props, set, lighting and of course, our acting.
In addition to the video, we will also be doing a small photoshoot for key panels and shots from the episode.
We are aiming for $600 as our goal. Whatever money we are able to raise will be going towards paying our crew and other production costs. We ourselves will not be profiting from this endeavor, but we feel it is necessary to pay the cameraperson, sound persons and of course, securing our location. Any leftovers from that point will go towards building our set pieces and acquiring and creating props!
I do hope that you guys will come and take a look at the page! It would mean a lot if you guys could reblog and share the link, too! We are aiming to film in late July, and will make it happen with whatever funds we can. <3

Circle Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka
Circle skirts are one of the handiest things you can learn to make for cosplay. As far as simple-to-make skirts go, there are two types: circle skirts and rectangle skirts. A rectangle skirts is where you cut out a large rectangle, and gather or pleat all of the excess material until it will fit your waist, giving you a nice full skirt (we explained it in a bit more detail on this over here).
Circle skirts, on the other hand, give you a lot of nice fullness, but with minimal bulk at the waist. For example, my Babs Bunny skirt:
It might not seem like it, but there are a ton of different things you can do with circle skirts. Long circle skirts (as outlined in the tutorial) are perfect for ball gowns. If you need less fullness, you can make a half circle skirt or a 3/4 circle skirt (just use a half circle or 3/4 of a circle, instead of the full circle). If you need more fullness, make several circle skirts (make sure you adjust the waist measurement accordingly, i.e. for 2 circle skirts, use half your waist measurement on both of them), and sew them all together. Here’s an example of that technique (with gathers and horse hair braid in the hem. Tutorial for how she made it here)
You can add pleats or scallops in the hem, layer a whole bunch on top of each other, or whatever else you want to do:
I’ve even known some people to make capes and cloaks and the like using a circle skirt as the basis of their pattern. So go forth! Go forth and use circles!
FREAKIN JUST WHAT I NEEDED

This seamless trim technique is a method I’ve been using for years to add custom trim to my costumes without any top-stitching at all. Similar in a way to bias tape, but with many key differences in implementation and results. No one taught me this technique, but now I’m teaching it to you! Please read through all the instructions below before asking any further questions, and happy trim-making! C:
There are three ways that we like to create symbols! Which one you choose depends on how clean you want to be, what sort of shape it is, and also what sort of materials you have available:
- Fusible webbing and/or topstitching
- Fabric paint
- Satin stitching

Okay so. That top picture fills me with joy because it just screams confidence and “I am a BADASS.” and if you know me you know I don’t often think that way. All three pictures show it, but that top one, man.
Thats partially why I love Moxxi so much. When I cosplay characters, their personalities bleed over into mine, because part of cosplaying for me is acting the part. And I feel damn beautiful when I’m Moxxi.
Also, having people scream for you after you shout “who loves you and who do you love” kiiiiinda helps with the whole confidence thing. >_>
Dear Moxxi, I get you. I totally get why you are you. <3

I love being Harley with Chelsea as Ivy because she loves Ivy as much as I love Harley, so even the candid shots of us are goofy and adorable. XD
I really hope we get to do the HarleyxIvy thing again soon because SHE ROCKS. <3
