It’s no secret. I love cosplay. This weekend I’ll be heading out to The Steampunk World’s Fair for three days of creative cosplay fun! I don’t sew but I do enjoy making the jewelry for my costumes. For this years SPWF, I’ve made the jewelry for two of my three outfits.
|Necklace for the butterfly collector cosplay|
I’ve been hanging on to this fabulous metal and resin butterfly pendant by Lynn Davis for several years. Well, I’m bringing back and revamping my butterfly collector costume this year so I finally had the inspiration to work with this piece. I added some citrine, coral, carnelian and Vintaj charms and chain to complete this necklace. It will also look great paired with the leather butterfly cuff that Lindsay posted about yesterday!
|Fit for a mermaid|
The other outfit I needed jewelry for was my ocean/mermaid-inspired steampunk cosplay.
|Fabulous enamel focal by Gardanne Beads|
I knew when I saw this enameled seashell in Anne’s booth that I had to have it. It matched portions of my costume perfectly! I paired it with some porcelain Suburban Girl seashell charms, Swarovski pearls, faux coral branches and aquamarine rondelles.
|Stoneware Keyhole Pendants|
This year I decided that mustaches would be my theme.
|Porcelain greenware mustache charms|
I found a 3-D printing service and had them create some mustache cutters in an assortment of sizes. I thought the tiny size was the best fit for my trinkets so I made about 25 in porcelain.
|Glazed but un-fired porcelain mustaches|
These charms were glazed but un-fired at the time I wrote this post but I should be unloading them from the kiln sometime today. After I inspect them, I’ll add a jump ring and put them on a ball chain.
