A few lovely things blooming in my garden lately! This is Grace Darling Rose.
I made a Thor Dress to see Thor The Dark World with my friends! I wore it with my Haenuli galaxy prince tights, We’re All Mad Here Gallifreyan necklace and my Thor earrings from 1928.
I used Simplicity 2588 as my muslin pattern. The red sleeves are a cotton sateen with top stitched detail lines. The base navy fabric is a glitter dotted stretch denim from Joann’s and the silver is a snakeskin pleathery type fabric that I Heat N Bond Lite-d on and then satin stitched the edges with metallic thread. I added large buttons (that I painted silver) on top of the appliquéd silver pleather circles. I ended up not adding the skirt stripes in my original sketch because the metallic thread satin stitching was so problematic! I broke two bobbins and the thread kept breaking and tangling all the time. Metallic thread is the worst!
My original idea sketch and work in progress dress:
This is my art of the 9th Doctor and Rose Tyler from the Series 1 finale, still one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes! A lot of plot has happened since then so I thought it would be nice to go “back to the beginning” so to speak. (At least the beginning of “New” Doctor Who, that is.)
I think you need a Doctor.
This is for the upcoming Doctor Who 50th anniversary artshow at Meltdown comics. There are tons of talented artists involved and I’m super happy to be a part of it! The opening is November 1st, 7pm. I hope to see you there! You can see more info on Meltdown here and the Facebook event here.
This piece is made up of a pencil drawing, COPIC marker colors and then a bit of a NASA galaxy photo as an overlay in Photoshop.
