My name is Eve - a.k.a Suspicious Tumbleweed. I'm a professional seamstress, fabricator, and cosplayer from Quebec, Canada. With nearly 10 years of creative experience, I have created costumes from a huge variety of sources, including gaming, films & tv, books, and original designs.
My journey began back in 2012, when I was costuming with friends using ready-made costumes bought online. I remember being completely amazed by the wonderful costumes that the crafters and cosplayers were bringing to events, and so I decided I would start making my own costumes too.
I began by following online tutorials made by professional cosplayers, and attempted to recreate what I saw in their pictures through trial and error. In 2014, I delved into working with thermoplastics, like Worbla, and later expanded into using EVA foam. I instantly fell in love with making and wearing armor, and it continues to be one of my favourite parts of costume builds. By 2015 I was much more confident at sewing, and so I was able to make all the parts for my costumes - even the shoes!
Since then, I've taken on increasingly elaborate and impressive builds, both for my own costumes, and as commissions from clients. I've also been a guest at conventions as a cosplay judge, plus given workshops and panels. My latest builds have incorporated more specialist techniques such as LED electronics, wig styling, and resin casting.
My current goals are to continue to improve and hone my skills, and further expand my commission services. I also want to help others learn how to make their own costumes, and enjoy costume making as much as I do! On my YouTube channel, you'll find my sewing and fabrication tutorials, and my costume walkthroughs. You can also join me live on Twitch where I stream working on my current projects, and I am always happy to answer any questions and share my expertise.
