Ep. 26 - Armor vs. Fabric!

This week's episode is all about how amazing Fabric.. no Armor... no Fabric!! Wait? which is better? Are armor cosplays superior to fabric based ones? Or is it the other way around? The answer is in the episode. If you have ever found your self wondering this or even thinking that your cosplay method is the best, you might want to have a listen. It may surprise you to see how much work goes into each method and skill for these types of cosplays.


Make sure to stay tuned this week as VFire has some fun diagrams to share that help show how much armor and fabric type cosplay skills overlap. We hope you enjoy the episode and the fun things coming ahead.

Ep 25 - Anime Banzai: In the Green Room

What is the Green Room? This is where cosplay contestants hang out before going on stage and performing! This fun episode goes behind the scenes and interviews cosplayers both before and after they go on stage. This is the last of our Anime Banzai episodes but most certainly one of our favorites.


Going on stage can give someone butterflies and be incredibly scary. The Green Room is a great place to be among others as nervous as you are. The camaraderie at Anime Banzai is very strong and everyone was so supportive of each other. Many competitors make news friends on the green room as well as see old faces they may only see at conventions. The creativity of the people who compete in these contests is admirable. Enjoy the rest of the pictures from the contest below.









Thanks for reading! The Stitch and Seam Team

Ep. 22 - Pamper Day!

Sometimes the best way to prep for a convention is to have a self-care day! Take a moment to relax and enjoy the pr-con pamper with Pannon as she relaxes with other cosplayers before Anime Banzai 2018. From manicures to pedicures, it is nice to sit back and take a break since conventions can be stressful to prep for.


Special thanks to Le Nails at South Town Mall for hosting all these amazing cosplayers.


The event was hosted by Pannon and pics were shared on our cosplay group on Facebook. Come join in the fun! Share your cosplay pamper days with us! Pre-Con Pampers for the win!


Thanks for listening and for everyone who able to make the event!

Ep. 21 - Cosplay in a Hurry!

Anime Banzai was last weekend and it was a blast! this episode has been up since Friday, now the accompanying blog-post can join in! I hope those who attended Anime Banzai had tons of fun. The Stitch and Seam Team had a lot of fun collecting Horror Stories for the Halloween Episode coming up.

Although we advise avoiding making cosplays in a time crunch here is an episode with advice on how handle a fast paced, deadline demanding, cosplay speed build. Sometimes it is unavoidable so here is how to speed build with keeping your health, and hopefully mind, sane.


What cosplays have you made on short notice? Share them here or in the Facebook Group! VFire has her weekend build of Pandora Hearts, Xerxes Break, in his Pandora Organization uniform below. It was fun build and she was surprised at how much she learned about jacket making. Next time she will do better and not have such short sleeves ;)


Thanks for listening, The Stitch and Seam Team
