Update! News! Excitement! Contest!

Greetings readers! I have some great news. First, I apologize for the lack of updates recently. I managed to get sick for most of the winter break and then school started again. Plus I am trying for an internship... scary!!! The good news is The Stitch and Seam is starting up again with updates for February! Yay! The cosplayer for February is actually going to be FIVE cosplayers. Exciting right?

Also, I am going to do the Valentine's Cosplay Contest Feature! It was a pretty big hit last year and I loved all the entries so I am doing it again. It is a hane for the readers to show off their love of cosplay. Here is how it will work. You send in a picture of yourself and your best friend, significant other, or just you and a pal dressing as your favorite couple and tell me about it. The details for the entries are all below.

In other good news, I will be more actively updating VFire's Corner this year with fun cosplay tips and adventures. In fact, I am going to try and catalog my adventures making Palutena and Sgt. Calhoun this year. I also plan on getting a full Sheik build up since I get questions almost all the time about how I made her. 

Valentine's Cosplayer Feature Entry

You will need to e-mail/message me the following at VFire.props @ gmail.com or Facebook.com/VFireCosplay

Entries are due by Feb 10th.

All entries will be featured on Valentine's Day!! Everyone is a winner for this one. Share the love! (Entries are subject to review, so play nice. Love you guys.) Please submit the following. There is no age limit.

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.
