Episode 4: Classic Anime

The month's episode of Sew Geeky was themed Classic Anime and was first announced over on our facebook page. Starting all the way back to Astro Boy, we are celebrating the animes of yesteryear that make the genre what it is today (think Cowboy Bebop, Sailor Moon, Akira, Trigun, Dragonball Z, Inyuasha...)

We have a handful of giveaways this month too, so check them out on Kat and Ari's blogs, you gotta be in them to win them! You can win the following PDF Patterns: Hosh Pants and Doli Tank by LouBeeClothing and a Skater Dress by KitschyCoo! Huge love for our ladies who so graciously made these available to us this month!

Our special guest this month was Celina of Petit a Petit and Family who sewed up this super adorable AstroBoy swimsuit for her son! We can't get over how perfect he is as Astro!

Click through to see more photos, leave some comment love and find out more about the outfit! Celina is the brains behind so many cool things, including STYLO magazine (which both of us here at Sew Geeky were honoured enough to be a part of their maiden issue!)

Akira became, of course, Kaneda from the anime she was named after! AKIRA! Check out her tiny little outfit and all the HILARIOUS photos right here, yo!

Eddie was transformed into Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon, check out her epic pose! Click here to see the rest of her outfit & enter to win a Skater Dress PDF Pattern thanks to Kitschy Coo!

Look it's Luffy! Sephira stars in this episode as our hero from classic anime One Piece! She's gonna be the Pirate King, more pics and details right here.

Gotta catch 'em all! And why wouldn't you with a Pokemon that is THIS cute? Check out the Pikachu onesie that Vincent will not take off over here

Last but certainly not least is beautiful Azy as Cardcaptor Sakura. You can see all the beautiful photos and a close up of those epicly perfect wings on Sew Chibi right here!

Sew Geeky Themes

Want to sew with us, or just want to know what theme we will be sewing for ahead of time? Here's our Sew Geeky Theme Schedule. We'll update this regularly as we finalise our ideas. Is there a theme you like that's not here /yet/? Leave a suggestion in the comments below!

August: Marvel vs DC Comics
this speaks for itself! Choose your favourite hero, or villain!
September: Studio Ghibli
Think Ponyo, My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away
October: Geek Spectacular 
What are YOU geeky about? Is it something we've already done? Doesn't matter, go WILD
November: Epic Fantasy 
We're talking Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. If it's fantasy, and it's epic, sew it up!
December: Tim Burton
Put Mr. Burton's iconic strangeness onto your things! Nightmare before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland or even Sweeney Todd!
January: Adult Swim
It's definitely aimed more at us than for the children, but we're so in love with the Regular Show, Adventure Time or the Venture Brothers - we had to make this a theme!

Miss something? Here's our past themes!

May: Star Wars
We celebrated Star Wars day with a Stormtrooper, Luke and Leia an Imperial Guard, then followed it up later that month with a Creatures of Star Wars mini special which included a Raincor (Rancor Raincoat), Wampa playmat and a Bantha hoodie!
June: Tank Girl
Feelin' a little inadequate? Just because we're all 'grown-up' now and are supposed to be responsible mamas it doesn't mean that we don't still have some rebellious attitude still inside! Check out our two Tank Girls as well TG's besties Jet Girl and Sub Girl as we celebrate the iconic badass babe with two guests!
July: Classic Anime!
From Astroboy to Cardcaptor Sakura to Sailor Moon, we covered the basics of the classic anime you fell in love with when you were first introduced to the best of Japanese cartoons! Check out the full post for One Piece, Akira and Pokemon too!

May: 8 Bit Babies
Sonic the Hedgehog, Nyan Cat and Tac Nayn, we payed homage to our favourite 8 bit videogames!
