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*

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…
