I’ve put a lot of hard work into these costumes and I love them all, but it’s time to make some room for future projects! Please consider giving them a new home!

I love this girl and her work is absolutely beautiful! Let’s help find new homes for her costume babies! :)

I didn’t realize there were so many Anzu/Tea fans out there!  I am happy to share more photos, this time from my awesome buddy fanboyphotos at Anime Blast Chattanooga last year!  He had a Duel Disk he even let me borrow because he’s cool like that!  :)  

Photography Etiquette, Chapter 1: Asking for a Picture

cosplayreverie:

So, you’re at a con.  And you want a photo of that really cool cosplayer you see.  Awesome!  And as cosplay, con, and/or photography etiquette have hopefully already informed you, it is always best practice to ask for a photo before snapping it.  So you do!

Tira 5 Progress Dump #1: Gauntlets and Shoe Armor

All of the armor for my Soul Calibur 5 Tira costume was made from Worbla, foamies, aluminum foil, and wire.  I started by building each piece out of foamies, then strengthened and built them up with the wire and aluminum foil.  Once that was done, I coated all of it in Worbla and sculpted the worbla layers with my hands and clay tools by reheating it over and over until I ended up with what you see here.  

I’m really glad Tira is a rough-and-tumble gross kind of character, it let me take advantage of the grainy texture of the Worbla.  I think the layers of black and silver and black/silver mixed paints came out really nicely!

How to make Puff & Slash Sleeves

cosplayreverie:

I’m toiling away on some WCS stuff, and I did some research to figure out different ways to do this type of sleeve. This tutorial is SO helpful and easy to follow, I’m so grateful to this wonderful place for sharing these directions and easy to follow photos! :D

I can’t not share this on my main page too!  Such a great tutorial!

Uuuugggghhhhh so much done but so much left to do still!  Have a progress lump since I haven’t posted one in far too long!  

Two wigs sewn together, ready to be styled, tunic done just needs some velcro, bodysuit done, shoulder plates painted and sealed just need weathered and some straps…  

Still need cape, gloves, belts, and boots.  At least what’s left is theoretically the easiest stuff?  *mad cackling*  

Ok back to work…

Hey, remember at Otakon when I was Morgan and I adopted a Lucina to be my big sister and then I tried to cut a cabbage because we had no apples? Yeah.. Good times. I hope shenanigans like this will happen at Katsucon. I should really finish that costume.

…I hope to see you at Katsu, my pretty…. <3

Cosplay Contests, Chapter 2: More Does not Mean Better

cosplayreverie:

Hello, hello!  It’s been far too long since I added to this blog.  Rest assured, I have many things in my drafts, but they all need some more fine tuning.  So, today, I’m going to go over something else I can say with almost 100% certainty that I have seen at every single contest I have either entered, judged, or watched.

I don’t know this game or the character, but when I ran across this photo I HAD to stop and look again. The craftsmanship on this costume is spectacular, and the bright colors are so eye catching! I really love the color fade on the wings (which look fabulous with all those feathers so carefully placed). The wig styling is also fabulous. This is a stunning photo of a gorgeous cosplay. Great work!
