Circle Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka
Circle skirts are one of the handiest things you can learn to make for cosplay. As far as simple-to-make skirts go, there are two types: circle skirts and rectangle skirts. A rectangle skirts is where you cut out a large rectangle, and gather or pleat all of the excess material until it will fit your waist, giving you a nice full skirt (we explained it in a bit more detail on this over here).
Circle skirts, on the other hand, give you a lot of nice fullness, but with minimal bulk at the waist. For example, my Babs Bunny skirt:
It might not seem like it, but there are a ton of different things you can do with circle skirts. Long circle skirts (as outlined in the tutorial) are perfect for ball gowns. If you need less fullness, you can make a half circle skirt or a 3/4 circle skirt (just use a half circle or 3/4 of a circle, instead of the full circle). If you need more fullness, make several circle skirts (make sure you adjust the waist measurement accordingly, i.e. for 2 circle skirts, use half your waist measurement on both of them), and sew them all together. Here’s an example of that technique (with gathers and horse hair braid in the hem. Tutorial for how she made it here)
You can add pleats or scallops in the hem, layer a whole bunch on top of each other, or whatever else you want to do:
I’ve even known some people to make capes and cloaks and the like using a circle skirt as the basis of their pattern. So go forth! Go forth and use circles!

DIY Handwritten Plates
For this project, you will need:
-Porcelaine paint fine tip marker (can be found at most craft stores)
-white charger plate
-wedding vows or first dance song lyrics
1. Lay a strip of painters tape near the top of your charger plate to make a straight line for penning your vows.
2. Press firmly on the tape to make sure it’s securely in place.
3. With your porcelain paint marker begin to pen the first line of vows onto your charger plate. If you make a mistake you can wipe with a damp cloth or scrape off with your fingernail. Just be sure to do it right away!
4. Move the tape down the plate to keep your lines straight and continue penning your vows until you reach the bottom of your plate.
5. To ensure your charger plate is dishwasher safe let it sit for 24 hours and then bake it according to the directions on the marker packaging.
