"The wide heel of these shoes was removed and replaced with a steel bolt to provide strength and support, but at a fraction of the size. An R2D2 toy covers the heel bolt, and the toes have been decorated with lenses, blue accents, and a blinking red LED to let everyone know just how this droid rolls."

"Finally got around to uploading some photos of my Supergirl costume from Nekocon 2012. The costume was totally last minute and there were a few malfunctions at the con, so please forgive the many inaccuracies. I plan to remake the costume before I wear it again. Also please forgive me for being fat. Unfortunately, genetics can be a bitch. :/"

Merchandise: Harley Quinn Corset

Available for purchase from Etsy. US$300

This corset has a total of twenty-two steel bones and is double boned at the seams. That means it’s well nigh indestructible and you probably couldn’t slouch while wearing it if you tried. The corset is made to order and takes about 3-6 weeks.

"This is more of a refined Jutsu. xD I didn't do the one shown in the anime for obvious reasons, so I decided to add a little more Naruto awesomeness. I designed the costume myself using the Shippuden version of Naruto. The seal was extra festiveness. I printed out the seal, copied it onto Freezer paper, cut it out, and used that as a stencil. Since I couldn't find any body paint before ACEN, I bought Crayola Washable Poster Paint. It worked quite well surprisingly enough!"

Is it just me, or does the Robb Stark in this set look a lot more like Samwell Tarly? I was excited when I first saw the shot because Sam, Jon, and Arya are my three favorite characters.
