|I hightly suggest you check these people out!|
My best friend both here and in Real life. We've known each other for nearly 10 years.
Known each other for 5 years, got me into manga and cosplay in the first place. Also an absolutely amazing photographer.
My super amazing friend from College with her fantastic hair.
He's my brother...what can I say. I love you bro despite everything.
There are too many things too say about you. She's my lil' Zel and gave me the inspiration to write Hidden Heroes. She draws all the fanart and keeps me going. In a previous life I think we were sisters.
My Zelda cosplay buddy. Over the past few months we have grown close and I would now like to think as her as my sister. She's so beautiful in everything she does and she's always there to talk to and moan.
An amazing girl with an amazing writing talent. She's my first American sister here of DA. I can talk to her about anything.
Thanks for all the love with the cosplay. You are such a beautiful person whether you think so or not and your art is wonderful.
gorgeous German cosplay, super cute and lovely to talk to. I love you Kouhai-chan. Senpai will always love you.
My amazing Imouto-chan, absolutely gorgeous cosplayer and artist. Always there for support.
My American Onii-chan, he's always there with support and is super awesome.
|What is the easiest fabric to use? |
For me personally it's cotton, be it pure or a mix such as polycotton because it's very versatile and can be used to make many different things, it also doesn't fray and is quite sturdy. However it all depends on the look you're going for if you just want something generic to start off then just use cotton. Also with cotton you don't have to alter you sewing machine much.
What do you cast your gems out of?
I usually use an epoxy resin to make my gems and I make all my molds myself from latex. However epoxy resin is extremely expensive so I'm hoping to switch to a polyester resin which is so much cheaper.
How do you get patterns on your cosplay?
Usually I have a few generic patterns I have and then I usually modify them. I would recommend using patterns Simplicity patterns which you can purchase from any fabric shop. I would also recommend if you're starting out to find cosplays with very simple parts which you can modify without much hassle or even not at all. If you're unsure about your pattern then I would advise you to make your patterns out of a cheap fabric such as calico and then you can see what needs changing and what doesn't.
Tips on measurements?
Generally, it depends on the cosplay and the pattern. When buying patterns they usually say the measurements for each size. I would recommend following these and it would be ideal if you can get someone else to do your measurements. The usual ones needed are hips, waist, chest/bust.
What sewing machine do you use?
I use a Janome 7025 which compared to my previous machine, is an absolute dream to use. It's very trusty and extremely simple to use. It's not the most expensive and not the cheapest but it does the job. I've seen some really awesome cheap ones for approx. £50 and they've gotten some pretty good reviews, just a limited number of stitches. That doesn't really matter unless you're want to do something intricate.
Name's Light-Sensei I'm a London based 18 year old cosplayer, who at the moment is trying to pursue a career in astrophysics while trying to maintain a healthy social life. I have an unhealthy addiction to tea, fruitcake and Zelda.|
I've been cosplaying and attending conventions since 2009, my first being Light Yagami from Death Note at the London MCM Expo but I only really took it more seriously in 2012. I try and make most of my costumes to the best of my ability and I'm always trying to achieve an accurate looking costume while adding my own little twists.
I get all my inspiration for cosplay from my love of video games, my favourite being The Legend Of Zelda, which most of my costumes are from. My dream is to make every single Princess Zelda costume. Going to take me a while but I'm determined to get there.
I'm also into writing, drawing and photography. I'm the proud author of the Zelda fanfic Hidden Heroes check it out here: fav.me/d54yzi7 which stemmed from RP-ing with the wonderful
I believe that a person can only be beautiful on the outside if they are first beautiful on the inside. If this is not the case then one cannot be beautiful no matter how much makeup you put on...
