Jayne at NineWorlds

So, I finally got to take Vera out for a cosplay appearance when I went to NineWorlds GeekFest recently. By the way, if you have any way of making it happen, GO TO NINEWORLDS NEXT YEAR! Best convention ever, this was my second year attending and it was brilliant.

But, this post is about Vera/Jayne, so here we go.


Vera was very well received and I got a lot of compliments for her crochet goodness. Unfortunately I was too busy having way too much fun to take any decent pictures at the convention, but here are a few others have taken:

If you happen to have any photos of yourself or me holding Vera, do send them my way so I can add them here!

More weaponry!

Now that Vera is done, I am working on the smaller pieces for my Jayne cosplay. The knife is all finished.


And the handgun is about halfway done!


We’re getting there! Just a few more pieces to finish.
I also started working on the Wonderwoman top for Wayne’s costume. So I’m keeping quite busy.

Six bullets and a strap

I am six bullets and a strap away from completing Vera! She’s turning out gorgeous and I am super proud of it already. Almost there, almost there!


She’s reinforced with wooden dowels, weighted with ceramic baking beads (to balance the shorter end with the longer, bulkier front) and filled with upholstery foam.
I have the cargo trousers and shirt ready to go as well, so the costume is getting towards completion. I would like to try to crochet the holders, gun, knife and gloves as well if I can get them done in time.
Here’s hoping! 😀

Vera update

I finally made some time to work on Vera again! It’s been way too long.


She’s coming along nicely. I used a 9mm dowel to reinforce the body and the grip for better stability.
Here’s to hoping I can finish her soon as I have a long list of cosplays I want to finish this year! 😀

Trigger Happy!

Got the trigger and huge magazine for Vera finished! This thing is starting to come together. Lots of detail work still to do, but the largest chunk is done.


The rest of the gun has so many small details though, it’s going to take a while to finish. Very happy with the progress so far though. 😀

Vera is coming along

It’s very rudimentary, but I have the basic body finished, everything else will be built on top of this. Unfortunately I ran out of black yarn, so I’ll have to work on the decorative bits and piecew until I stock up again.


I’m using upholstery foam for the filling for the first time, I’m hoping it’s more stable than polyfil and holds the shape better. It seems to be working well so far, we’ll see how it goes once all the bits and pieces are added.

Starting on Vera!

Mostly finished with my Miss Piggy ears and nose, so I started on Vera for my upcoming Jayne cosplay.


Granted, it’s not much yet, but I’m excited! 😀
