Also here is a side by side comparison of how it was and where it’s going.

How to lighten a wig

I’ve never actually done this process but this is the only tutorial I have seen that actually claims to lighten a wig. Reader beware, this seems like a long time consuming process. I do think it’s very useful if you have to do it.

I did a Ryuuko cosplay in January to Ohayocon. I’m just now getting around to a tutorial on how I did it. I took the above pictures just now. Don’t you want a decently durable, lightweight, CHEAP scissor blade you can hang on your wall,…

Universal Invisible Zipper Foot 

ciciascloset:

I think I’ll be able to sew tomorrow! Yaaaaay! therefore I’m going to teach you, dear reader, how to use an invisible zipper foot. I know the word zipper is daunting and invisible zipper sounds worse. Trust me, it is not that complicated. DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE. I will try and break it down to…

Reblogging because knowing how to install an invisible zipper is very important.

Finally finished my ryuko ready for my mako. Ahhhhhh I’m so exciiitttteeeeed. Can you tell? Alsobigboobstruggle with that shirt. Here’s what I got:

Will wear a sports bra instead of a push up. I do not need the extra boobs. 

Anyways the video is how to do the math for pleats! Math is often times the hardest thing to master when sewing. I’m minoring in math and it’s often times hard for me. Math is hard.

Anyways here is a link to the blouse. No math involved.

I get messages on a regular basis from people who are scared of cosplaying, and it makes me so sad that there are people out there who really want to try cosplaying but are too afraid of getting internet hate to participate. That just ain’t cool.

Bullying is never okay, but unfortunately it’s a pretty frequent occurrence in the online world of fandom. And realistically, the bullies probably aren’t going anywhere. The internet makes it really easy for people to spread hate, and I don’t think there will ever be a day when it isn’t an issue in the cosplay community. (Depressing, I know, especially considering we’re all a bunch of weirdos pretending to be magical girls/ninjas/dudes with giant swords/elves/etc. In an ideal world, we’d all stick together, but unfortunately, it’s not an ideal world.)

When you see someone else being bullied, it can be easy to stand up for them - but when you’re the one receiving hate messages on Tumblr or someone is leaving cruel comments on your photos, it can be a lot harder. I’ve found that when it comes to dealing with hate you may get for your costumes, the best thing to do is let it go.

Don’t acknowledge it, don’t give it a second of your time, because it seriously does not matter. Seriously. Doesn’t matter. No, really, it doesn’t. Step back and look at the big picture. Does a message from some jerk on the internet who hates your nose or your weight or your fabric choice really affect your life? No. It doesn’t. There are so many awesome things to enjoy in life, ain’t nobody got time to waste on jerks like that.

Just don’t care what other people think. Someone thinks you make an ugly Sailor Moon? Who cares! You had a great time cosplaying her and you got to spend the whole day with your Sailor Scout group, and you’re really proud of the pictures you guys took together - so share those memories, post them all over your Tumblr and your Facebook, spam them everywhere! If that person doesn’t like your costume, that’s their problem. You keep on doin’ you.

It’s easier said than done; having self-confidence takes practice, but once you get there, it’s an insanely good feeling to know that their words can’t hurt you. Focus on having fun with your hobby, spending time running around as ninjas with your friends, and crying over your sewing machine the night before a con because your SnK jacket isn’t done and you still haven’t started on the straps and oh god how does 3DMG even work.

This got a lot longer than I intended, but tl;dr: Don’t let the haters stop you from sharing your artwork with other cosplayers and bonding with each other over this silly, ridiculous hobby of ours.

As always, Mango Siren nailed this one on the head :) A must watch for anyone thinking about starting cosplay, or even ENDING cosplay due to stupid harassment.

To add to this: Also never feel bad for blocking someone from your page for being an asshole, or turning off your anon messages, or messages entirely. You don’t even have to give them a reason why, it is your page, your house, your rules :)

Very important stuff right here. Always remember to love yourself both in and out of cosplay, be secure in who you are and how you look. 

Never be afraid to start cosplaying.

I want to talk to you guys~

What makes you look up to a cosplayer? Certain skills? Personality? People they know? 

I’m really curious! How do you choose your senpai? (Feel free to share who your senpai is, too!!)

<3 Emi of L2S Cosplay

Also vicious-cosplay will always be my senpai along with mangosirene they’re really into what they do and it shows! I absolutely adore their work.

Ironing is one of those simple actions that makes your cosplay look more professional. It is simple yet often overlooked. Protip; always iron to make sure your seams lay flat, don’t have wrinkles and perfect your curves hems.
This is literally one of the most important parts of sewing.

Also helpful tip: Wash your fabric before you sew! ^.^
THEN YOU FUCKING IRON IT


Is it bad that the first thing I thought was hOLY SHIT THEY’RE GONNA BURN IT!!!!

I was pressing the fabric. I wasn&#8217;t going to burn it. I swear I know what I&#8217;m doing. Although that always worries. I AM INSECURE ABOUT MY IRON ABILITIES.

Since I’m currently making Senketsu here is a really relevant tutorial. How to make the blouse without a store bought pattern! More generally how to make a Sailor type uniform. I am a really cheap person so I try to make as much as I can myself and if It’s really easy to follow so this is a beginner project. 

So good luck and happy cos-making!
