MindCraft Success

MindCraft was a huge success and there is word of a second one for the summer coming up! I most certainly plan on going to it and would love to return as a presenter.  The next time this is held I certainly plan on bringing more things to work on while panels are going on. I was really not sure what to expect at this and it was truly a wonderful surprise. What a great way to get out and meet other crafters in the dead of a Utah winter.

Everyone settling in at MindCraft for the presentations. All of these great minds here had some very good ideas and crafting skills! You can see my props for the prop panel sitting out on the table.

After braving a freaky Utah fog to get to BEAU we all settled in for a day of crafting and knowledge sharing. The presentations were amazing! I need to get me some Sintra/Excel. That stuff is amazing! The panel on armor making was very well put together by members of H.E.R.O.I.C. Inc. and the Mandalorian Mercs: Krayt Clan.  In fact, all the panels were great. As soon as some videos are posted I will share them here on this blog post. 

Note to self for next time: Take more pictures! I got so into taking notes I forgot to take any good photos. 

Next week! February's Cosplayer Feature will be the first with a detailed "How They Made..." post. Keep an eye out for the feature and then the following week after the feature will be the "How They Made..." section. I am very excited to be trying this new section out for the blog, so stay tuned for updates!

How to Make Auron's Blade - The Cosplay Armory

As promised, James of the Cosplay Armory shares his knowledge on how to make Auron's Katana from the game, Final Fantasy X. I have been very excited for this as I followed his page as he worked on the blade. I hope you enjoy it! - VFire


Auron's Katana Build by James

A note before I start. I will be mentioning the use of several machines that I have the luxury of having in my shop that I am well aware not everyone has. This project is definitely easier with them than without but everything I describe can be done without them or with simpler tools. I will also include steps that I do that are not necessary in parenthesis()

I was commissioned to build the Auron Katana by Lolita Zombie Cosplay and knew immediately that I wanted it to be light, yet durable. The first step to building any prop is figuring out what you’re going to make it out of. A lot of prop makers use light woods like poplar and MDF and while I have used some wood I decided it would be my first sword that I built e…

How Sailor Crafty Made... Sora: Kingdom Hearts II!

Last week we met Savannah, aka: Sailor Crafty, and her fun creature and human cosplays. This week we get to delve into one of her first creations: Sora from "Kingdom Hearts II." This section of the blog is brand new and is meant for seeing the creation process of one or more parts of a coplay. Savannah was kind enough to explain her entire Sora cosplay for us.


Inspiration
Savannah did not know she was going to cosplay Sora as she played through the popular game "Kingom Hearts II." There is nothing like a sudden moment of inspiration from something you see.
"I was working at JoAnn... and noticed a chain in the clearance rack. This chain sparked the idea [for the cosplay] because it was so perfect for Sora's crown necklace!" - Sailor Crafty.

Creation Process
"The overall idea behind this costume was comfort and and the ability to wash everything so I can wear it again and again! I made it back in 2005 and I still wear it to cons now! ... I especiall…
