Hello World!

We’re still around and costuming! We’ve definitely slowed down a lot though with life getting busy and some of us having kids (holy cow), but we’re all still active and you’ll see updates here and there.

Idol Sailor Moon Sailors
My friend Charlene suggested I should do pop idol Sailor Moon redesigns and I thought it was an adorable idea. Japanese pop idol groups (both in real life and in anime and video games) are so cute! Here’s my take. As someone who works in animation and also someone who enjoys making costumes I had a lot of fun redesigning these Sailor Moon costumes. Each Sailor has their own personal variations. You can find prints of these here on Society6 and Redbubble and I’ll also be selling some personal, signed prints soon. [...]

Super Mario Bros Knee Patches
What do you know… the Larva put holes in another pair of pants. Well, one hole, but I preemptively patched both knees because I know it’s just going to be a matter of time before the other knee ends up with a hole too. I decided she needed something geek themed, and went with Super Mario Bros patches. (And yes, if these pants look familiar, it’s because they’re the same pants I patched in my last post. The Larva has 2 pairs of these pants, and now they all have patched knees.) These patches were really fun to do and they weren’t that much more work than a simple heart patch. I’ll post a tutorial next time on how I made these. The post Patching Clothes Geek Style appeared first on Confused Kitty Creations. [...]

My framed original Sailor Moon Serenity piece, “Moon Kingdom Dream” is available for sale! I wanted to do a romantic piece with lots of little details. The roses and the Moon Kingdom took so long to do! This was done with COPIC markers, white prismacolor pencil and white and gold Sakura gel pen. It doesn’t show up well in photos but there are a lot of little gold details on the Moon Kingdom and Serenity’s dress. I customized a frame with Sailor Moon wands, roses and pearls. The image is 11×14″. Please email me at sweetmomokoATmac.com (replace AT with @) if you’d like to buy it. Cost is $200 unshipped. USA only. [...]

finished clothing patch
Patching clothes was never something I had to do before, but kids are really hard on their clothes! In the last year, I’ve patched quite a few knee and elbow holes. At first I bought those patches that are sold at Joann, but then I realized I have lots of fabric scraps that would make adorable patches so why not make my own? It’s super easy and fast. I can patch a knee hole in about 15 minutes. Of course right now the knee holes are very small as the Larva is only 2 years old… Materials: fabric scrap* Heat ‘n Bond needle & thread pencil scissors iron * Generally, you want to use a fabric that is similar weight to the clothing item you are patching. For kids’ clothing, I like to use something a bit sturdier, so I use high end quilting cottons or bottomweight fabrics like twill. Draw your shape on the paper side of [...]
