New Blog Features: How They Made

Good morning!... or evening, or day! There have been a few changes in the blog. The "How They Made..." section will be up and running this month. This new section to the blog will be featuring how a cosplayer made a certain part of a cosplay or the entire cosplay, depending on what they would like to share. This section is not necessarily a tutorial section, but rather a place to see what materials and techniques a cosplayer used to create their work.

"How They Made..." will start with February's Cosplayer Feature, which should be up by the end of this week. I apologize for the delay but a certain blogger got a full time job. It is amazing how much time 40 hours really is. The Cosplay Feature will be up by the end of the week and the accompanying "How They Made..." will follow up the next week.

Other new blog features include a tutorial section, an events page, and an updated links page. The tutorials will be going live in a few months as pictures and data are gathered for them. The events page shows events and their information along with what I will be doing at said event, if anyone is interested. Lastly, the "Links" page was updated... with every pun intended.

Future updates include: A new "About" page... that is about it. I am keeping my hands pretty full with the "How They Made..." and "Tutorials" pages for now. If anyone has feedback for the blog, please comment or contact me via the means on the links page. I would love to know your opinion on my blog and what I could do to improve.

In other news, Fannatiku is coming up on the events list and once again I am asking, "Why do I only give myself a month to finish my cosplays?!"

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…
