Fannatiku!

The pre-con jitters are getting to me. I am going to Fannatiku in St. George, Utah this weekend. It will be the first convention for me this year and I am very excited! I have never been to this convention and so far I have heard good things about it. The events include Cosplay Chess, a formal dance (Wonderland themed), a Cosplay Contest, and more! The panel line-up is also impressive with Cassini Closet teaching panels on Mascot Cosplay and Plushie making. The cosplayer guest GoH Precious Cosplay will also be there and hosting panels on cosplay design. I will be doing a panel on handstitching and embroidery for cosplay on day two.

Looks like I won't have a dull moment while at this convention. My sister and I have plans for the Cosplay Contest. Together Lexus and I call ourselves "Ba-bomb Squad." At least that is what it will be for this competition. We might change it, haha. We will be debuting my latest work: Prince and Doll from the manga "1/2 Prince." If you have not read that manga, it is really good and I highly suggest it... good meaning it is hilarious! We will also be wandering around as Ordon Link and Princess Agitha. For the formal dance we likely show up as Break and Sharon from Pandora Hearts.

Expect some pictures next week and a post about the convention!

Note: I updated the events section. I had to pull out of Anime Salt Lake due to my wedding coming up. I plan on making my own wedding gown so that is taking priority over cosplay of course. I am sad to not go the convention, but I have wedding plans to make and that makes up for it. *so in love*

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…
