Hey to anyone out there reading this! Thanks for stumbling upon my little blog. I’m planning on documenting my process of becoming better at costume design and cosplay in general.
I’m not an expert in anime and obscure fandom characters. I’m not a super skinny model looking for followers. I’m a pretty average, normal person with a bit of crafty know-how.
I’ve been to a bunch of conventions, and although I love them, I find a lot of joy when I have a costume to showcase as part of my experience. I get maybe one or two chances a year to actually make something worthwhile, and I’d love to go to more cons to actually gain more experience.
Aside from Halloween costumes, I’ve made full cosplays from scratch myself of the following:
- Mana (Yu-Gi-Oh)
- Vaporeon (Pokemon)
- Erza Scarlet in Heaven’s Wheel Armour (Fairy Tail)
- Mercy in Witch Skin (Overwatch)
And now my next big project is the ultimate armour hell. Lady Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft.
Although I’ve been traipsing about the interwebs looking for in depth tutorials for this build, there is a lot of variation on the techniques, materials and overall design work for this particular character.
So for all the noobs like me out there, I’m here to make some headway and try to share all the cosplay hacks I’m sure to learn on this journey. Maybe?
Good luck to us all.
