I’m Seth. My goal, my purpose, is to spread joy. To make someone smile, make their day just a little brighter. That’s where the Happy Nakama Cuddle Buddies and the residents of Schwoopie Towne come in! The Cuddle Buddies are adorable little plush friends looking for a hug and a heart to brighten. They come in all different forms – dragons, squirrels. They’re made from scrap fabrics rescued from yard sales and resale shops. Each one is different in its own special way from all the others, assembled one by one from my own original pattern. They’re soft and squishy – meant to be hugged and played with and loved. Sturdy enough to survive the washer and dryer (preferably in a lingerie bag or something similar).

My schwoopies are joyous little expressions of vibrancy and light. They are chubby little balls of energy with no defined gender and they come in all colours of the rainbow. Schwoopie Towne is where they live and play. They started as just some doodles in the margins of my journal and one day a smart friend of mine told me “I can’t help but smile when I see these little guys. You should really do more with them.” So I started drawing actual pictures with them – drawing greeting cards, a calendar, painting them all over some reclaimed furniture. And they have just grown and grown from there.

As I'm sure my last blog made clear, I was really worried going into this cosplay idea. I've never made cosplay costumes before. The besties and I have done cosplay one other time - when we went to the "Death Note" movie. I think I made a pretty cute Misa but I'm really excited about getting to cosplay again because I've lost some weight since then and I think I'll be more comfortable in the costume. Blessedly, though, Orihime doesn't wear anything super skimpy! I have some other characters that make me nervous to think about! lol

I'm actually cranking along pretty well! I'm super-excited! At this point, the only costume still needing major construction is Orihime's dress. I know it's technically cheating to just modify clothes we bought instead of actually sewing the costumes, but it was some seriously short notice for making 4 full costumes when I'm the only one who sews! o_0 It was awesome that the besties actually managed to find almost everything we needed. The only thing I'm having to completely construct is Ishida's cape, but I found a really simple tutorial on how to make it and I think it looks great. (Bonus: Three yards of cheap fabric from the scrap bin at WalMart. w00t!)

If I could say there's a down side to sewing this cosplay, it would be the fact that I'm having so much fun and enjoying the challenge of making the costumes look like the characters and I'm afraid I'm catching the cosplay bug! I could also blame the fact that I've been watching "Heroes of Cosplay". Unfortunately it only got 6 or so episodes, so I'm hoping there will be a second season with maybe more episodes. I love it though. I keep freaking out about how things look and the besties keep yelling at me "Yaya's not gonna be judging! Quit freaking out!"
