News: FanX - Scavenger Hunt Game!

Hello readers! Thank you for being awesome and I cannot wait to see many of you at the Fan Experience, or FanX, this weekend here in Utah. As usual I will be going about and taking pictures of con-goers and asking them about their costumes. That and the convention review will be posted next week. I am also doing an extra special feature based on the game below. Think you can help me out?

Super Smash Scavenger Hunt!
Special Extra Feature

On Friday I will be dressed as Sheik from Super Smash Brothers: Brawl. As Sheik I want to see how many of the characters from Brawl I can find and get an action picture with them! FanX is going to have a large number of attendees so do you think I can find every person on the Brawl cast?

Link cosplayer is Cody.

Saturday I will resume regular feature pictures and interviews for the FanX review post. The Scavenger Hunt will only be on Friday. Saturday I will be debuting Tigress from Kung Fu Panda. I cannot wait to see all your happy faces!


In other news: The Cosplay Stitch and Seam was featured by Fantasy Con! Fantasy Con will be in July and you can see the feature they did here. 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.
