My New Logo

I have finally created a logo for Chrix Design. Why do I need a logo, because I really wanted one. Just think of all the fun branding stuff I can do now - I'm so gonna make a was seal set!


The first variant is for cosplay and my new webpage. The other two are for simpler branding like the wax seal, stamps and to use with non cosplay related design. 

I will play around a bit with colors still, I don't want to limit myself quite yet. 

Now brace yourself, now coscard are coming <3

Cosplay plans for 2017

A new year means getting my butt in gear and finish some old costumes and plan a bunch of new ones. I do the planning all year round anyways though. 

Blonde girls with blue dresses
For some reason I have fallen for three different characters with blonde hair and blur dresses, don't know if I will make them all, but I want to. 

Alice from the 2010 movie

Cinderella in her casual dress from the 2015 movie

Dolores from Westworld

Other characters I have been planning are:
Sombra from Overwatch

Wizard from Diablo 3 (this one is half finished already)

Alice from Madness return with the Silk Maiden dress, because I love all the designs. 


And the cosplay on a budget challenges. I will write more about that when the January project is on it's way. ;)

And a couple of secret projects that I don't want to reveal just yet.

Another year of cosplay documented - 2016 is over

Every year I write a sum up of what I have made and experienced through that year. This is mostly for myself, as a diary, because after a while it is not always as easy to remember which year I made what costume.
What a year!

Fallout upgrade 
This is not a totally new cosplay, but I ended up creating a whole new look with the shaved head so I still think it deserved a spot on my "highlights of the year".

  • I was a guest at both Advik and Geekcore
  • Visited the childrens ward at Rikshospitalet
  • I made a Birthday sword
  • I was on the NO/DK team for Overwatch all stars
  • And I got to be a mentor for a student <3

Game Developer Barbie

I loved playing with Barbie dolls as a kid, and I was encouraged to design and sew my own clothes for the dolls, making them everything from princesses to jungle and underwater explorers (we had a huge garden). 

I also love that Barbie is now a game developer. Both the style and "life style" of this dolls matches me irl pretty good. So closet cosplay it is.

I even got photographer Ice of Tin to shoot some laidback cafe photos.

Ice Queen

When you have a lot of leftover Polymorph you need to make up new projects, or I do at least. So I though why not make a glowing Ice crown. The Polymorph was sculpted around LEDs to make it glow :)


And since I now have a crown, why not make an entire Ice Queen costume. I have a feeling I have named a lot of my OC characters something Queen, that seems to be my style ;)
