Practice practice practice. Noses are still a thing so, keep up on that. Just gotta remember basic shapes and stuff like that.
As well as my Caspira costume I’ve been working on, seriously toying with the idea of pulling together a cosplay for DragonCon this year of Bioshock Infinite. Elizabeth’s ‘Burial At Sea’ costume specifically. It would be criminally easy.
So been working on this for about a couple days and it’s gone great! Bought the shirt and altered it, made the skirt completely from scratch using a draft pattern (I nearly threw my machine out the window after foolishly jumping in the first day).
Just need a few little details. Buttons on the cuffs, the necktie and brooch, fishnets (and maybe a wig? I dunno…). I could also try and substitute a short 1950s hairstyle. DECISIONS.

I’ve seen other artists doing this. Don’t lose hope, keep with it! Improvements will follow the more you practice and the longer you keep at it. :)
It is that time again!
