Hiatus Over and Great News

Hello everyone! Thank you for sticking around while I got married and moved into an apartment. I aplogize for the late post today, but it is my birthday so... I can be lazy right? I noticed as I was gone that the blog still got some healthy traffic. Now that the hiatus is over there are some big things to look out for this month.
Chris and I were out at 4 AM for this shot.

Astro-photography is awesome!
First, next week the cosplayer feature will be up and we will be delving into a fun process I think everyone will enjoy. I am taking each interview and trying something new; focusing more on the process, skill sets, and professional use of skills learned through cosplay.

Second, some of my surprises upon returning have been a little slow in the making but sometime this month I plan on having (drum roll) a Tutorial Website and Collective going live. What is this? Well, I am working on tutorials based on my adventures in cosplaying that I would love to share with everyone. Collective? I hope to search for and find the best tutorial websites made by costumers and cosplayers alike. They will be on a page altogether with a brief summary of their work and amazing talents. What about The Stitch and Seam? The blog will still keep going and be linked from the tutorial website. There is no way I am giving this up, haha!

Thank you dear readers for sticking around and I promise you will see some very amazing talents and cosplayers. Keep your eyes open next week for the July Feature and more news as The Stitch and Seam grows.

By the way, Elrowiel of Green Jello cosplay is wonderful and made my wedding dress. The design is by me and she made it real. Thank you!

New Writer and Announcements!!

Welcome back! It's been a while but I promise the wait has been worth it. Over the past year I've re-evaluated what the Cosplay Stitch and Seam should be. I feel like I've found it and have exciting news for you!

First off, Pannon is now a co-writer for the blog. She has made over 300 cosplays in the 15 years she's been crafting. Her work ranges from mad armor to poofy ball gowns. She has also helped found conventions and consistently works for a few across the states. One of her most notable achievements is being one half of the international competitive team, Green Jello Cosplay.
Pannon's experience will help bring in "behind the con scenes" as well as a plethora of tutorials and crafting stories. We will also be doing convention reviews and cosplay contest discussions.

Speaking of content - The Stitch and Seam is going podcast!! Episodes will be airing within a few weeks as we talk shop about anything and everything in our community.
Guest writers? Y…

Podcast Ep. 003 - Nihon Matsuri and the Cosplay Judges

This is our first live episode with a live audience... of about 5 people, but it still counts! Pannon and VFire are joined by Rennagade and Tatsue Cosplay as judges for the Nihon Matsuri Cosplay contest. Huzzah for guest episodes! (EDIT: Episode has been updated with bloopers at the end.)


The Japanese Festival, Nihon Matsuri, celebrates Japanese culture from old to new traditions and activities. It is a really fun experience and incredibly educational as it shows how much the Japanese community has had an effect on downtown Salt Lake City.
