Mini PSA:

Please be nice to people who write tutorials!

No one is FORCED to write a tutorial about anything - they do it to help the community and share knowledge with other costumers.

Writing tutorials can be HARD. What is common sense to you might be unknown to…

I was at a massive con, it was the second day I was there. Now, I didn’t have the money for a full costume this time so I put together some things and bought some jewelry and made a pretty lovely woodsprite-y outfit.
So I’m walking around, and as I’m asking about the prices of some earrings I…

Just catching up on the stories and thought this would be a good story to reblog as a warning to people. Be weary of strangers telling you to follow them to another area. Con security is there to protect you and if a situation like this arises, tell them. 

Hello! I am fairly new to making props, and I was wondering if you knew of any way to make a decent-looking shield without too much difficulty? I am making the shield from Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and also the one from Twilight Princess. I know I could just find one online but I really want to make the entire cosplay myself. The above shield (wind waker) is the most complex shield i have made but it’s just painted cardboard.

I want to personally say you COULD give this tutorial a try but this isn’t something you could easily do without tools in it. I’m just starting to get into props as well, but for me what came to mind was using possibly something like the cardboard and adding another layer to it or even using something more flexible (a Eva Yoga mat is something I’ve heard is good to use) and then making the entire design yourself by hand on foam and hot-gluing it to the “shield” to give it that 3D appearance like in the tutorial. It’s just a thought as I’d rather you not try to do the tutorial unless you already have the tools or live in a home that would allow the use of power tools. 
I hope this helps!

Slim Fursuit Feet Paw Tutorial. Just finished a second set of feet paws for Halla because my first set isn’t very comfortable for a lot of walking. These feet are significantly smaller than my first set and they have flat shoe bottoms instead of raised silicon paw pads. I do not wish to go any more specific with my process, but I thought having a few photos could be helpful to those seeking to make slim outdoor feet.

Anonymous said: Hello! I've got an opinion question for you. I was thinking about doing a faun cosplay but don't feel very comfortable running around in a bra, so do you have any ideas on what else I could wear up top that might cover a little more? Thank you!

Hello! Thank you for the question! 

This is a very interesting question to ask as I don’t think I’ve seen anyone literally cosplaying as just a faun. Normally people do faun make-up as a character from a series..But I see it this way, if this is your own character why make it wear just a bra? I don’t believe there is a code on what a faun should wear as it can be interpreted differently to people. Here are a few examples I’ve found:

Definitely do what you feel comfortable with and explore different ideas on the internet people have already done. Also, since this is your own creation do what you like- you like steam punk? Try something like that with it. Renaissance? Find something that fits the era. 

Have fun!

I’ve been waiting to do this cosplay for the longest time and so I finally did it. I hope you enjoy the pictures, as I await the next episode of the arc I’ve been waiting AGES to be put in the anime.

All I’m saying. This is the cosplaying I’ve been dying to get in and finally did during the con.

Anonymous said: Its first time cosplaying. And I've never worn makeup and I know most cosplayers do wear makeup for their cosplay but I'm not entirely comfortable putting makeup yet. Should I just go without the makeup anyway?

Hello, Anon!

Makeup is not required for cosplay but I will say it can make or break a cosplay depending on which character you’re cosplaying. On another note, you mentioned this as your first cosplay so I say It’s better to not crawl out of your comfort zone and put it on until you feel comfortable near it. Just dress up in your costume and enjoy the cosplay! Makeup is again not a requirement in cosplay, but I will say it can be fun to play with once you get around to feeling like you can fool around with them. Hope this answered your question!

Short answer: Don’t do something you’re not comfortable with.

Anonymous said: Hello! I have two questions: Okay, so first, there is nothing wrong with someone who weights more than a character to cosplay that character, right? And the same thing goes for the other way around, right? Even if we don't weight as much as the original it could still be good cosplay, right? Second, there is this cosplay I would like to do, the character has a wheelchair and I don't. It would still look nice if the rest of the costume is spot on, right? Thank you for your time ^ ^

Hello, Anon! Thank you for the question! As for your answer- You are indeed correct. When you cosplay you do not have to stick to characters in your weight range or even height and gender. Cosplay who you love and remember that the human body is not one sole shape and very beautiful indeed. We aren’t hired mascots by companies like Disney to dress up how they want us to dress. As for the wheelchair- you can indeed do so but please do be mindful of those around you at a convention and do not play around with the wheelchair and chase other convention goers in it. I hope these answer your question and that you enjoy cosplaying said character! ^^

Back from the con!

Hello! We are back from the convention and WOA! Did not see the many unanswered questions in the askbox so I will slowly be answering that soon! If you haven’t been answered- Do not worry, I’ll be getting to it slowly!

I’ll most likely post pictures of myself in my new cosplay soon, so look out for that!

-Admin Y

Note: Away for Con

For those who ask any questions or come here looking for anything new, most of the admins shall be out having a fantastic time at our next Convention. We’re heading to Tampa tomorrow, so enjoy and most likely you’ll get tons of new pictures to see here! I’ll even post pictures of my newest Cosplay I’m debuting there!
