TGC’s “Journey” Cosplay!
Myself and ClearKid dressed up as the Journey Characters.
Costumes were made entirely by the two of us. Including the onesie’s.
The capes still aren’t fully done. We are making them go all the way up to tier 4.
***Whoa, thank you so much everyone for all the comments and rebloggs and the like. Please check out our JourneyCosplay tumblr here : http://journeycosplay.tumblr.com/
My Red Cloak from Megacon! Photography by the amazing tradanui!These are just a few of the shots, but the whole shoot was just incredible! Thank you again for it!
Okay that took forever, I’m sorry. Here’s the tutorial on how I made my Journey costume! I’ve included a photoset of the tutorial, and below are the links that will take you to the pattern PDFs (the first is a 24 x 36 file, so happy print tiling!). For Illustrator-savvy folks, you can also dive into the pattern files and manipulate them yourselves.
Side note: I am not a professional seamstress/fashion designer, so I’m sorry if there’s inaccuracies or errors or dubious advice, it’s more of a step by step of how I did it with helpful patterns!
Any questions, use the Ask box, also! I’m happy to offer any help or advice! And I’m sorry, but I do not take commissions!
If you have problems downloading, let me know! Don’t abuse my bandwidth, plz
EDIT: A lot of people have been having sizing troubles with the hood lately, not sure if it’s just the new file I uploaded or not because I can’t pinpoint why. So everyone MAKE SURE to test it on paper then scrap fabric FIRST before you cut into the fabric you are using!
A design I dreamed about that I would one day like to make!
Hey Tumblr! I had a request to post a few more of the quotes on the Journey papers (pictured above) I handed out when I wore my Journey cosplay at Fanime this year. Ask and ye shall receive! I didn’t credit the people who said these wonderful things on the papers, but I will credit them here. This is just a small sampling; I gathered a total of 50 different quotes. Enjoy! ^_^
We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.
Robert Louis Stevenson
We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.
Robert Louis Stevenson
There’s not a word yet, for old friends who’ve just met.
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.
I am no longer afraid of becoming lost, because the journey back always reveals something new, and that is ultimately good for the artist.
If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses, what might not the heart of man become in its long journey toward the stars?
Sorrows do not last forever when we are journeying towards the thing we have always wanted.
When you come upon a path that brings benefit and happiness to all, follow this course as the moon journeys through the stars.
The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
Come dress yourself in love, let the journey begin.

CLOAK IS DONE
Everything is topstitched, everything is fraychecked, velcro is on and works well, it is SWISHY and lovely. Forgive the shitty gif quality these are totally the first gifs I’ve ever made.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy with something I’ve made before (good thing it’s a commission! haha).
Never have I ever related to anything more in my life!

Is the best option in these situations to just let them figure out that the thing sin a hazard?
