Salt City Steamfest Pre-Registration

Every so often I feature a convention on my blog. You might see this particular convention pop up time and time again. The reason? I am helping to run it as the Volunteer coordinator and I know all the fun goody things that will be happening. This convention is going to be a real hit so I have to share it!

Calling all Steampunks! The Salt City Steamfest is Utah's premier steampunk convention. The Steamfest started last year in the summer in Salt Lake City, Utah. We expected 400, maybe 500 hundred attendees would show up for this first year convention. There were 1275 attendees and the place was packed and the steampunk crowd was amazing!

This year's Steamfest will be held at the Davis Convention Center in Layton, Utah. Events such as the Nerf Battle and the Formal Ball will be returning. Guests like "The Uprising of The Gin Rebellion," "Unwoman," and more are coming to the Oasis in the Utah Desert to perform and interact. The "Nerf Battle" will be returning along with a grand "Steampunk Ball." An "Urchin's Corner" for kids has fun activities for all ages. The Festival of Fashion Show, the Salty Dog Writing Challenge, and the Art Show are looking for entries as well.

Pre-registration is open now and there are some nice perks to getting your pass to the convention! You can have the whole weekend in the for $25.00 ($5.00 for kids!) or even $100 for a group of five. The Steamfest is also looking for Artist Alley Artists and Panelists. Please follow the links below to register and learn more.

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…

Ep. 017 - Secrets of Cosplay Docs for Contests!

This week Pannon and VFire talk about documentation for Cosplay Contests. This can be a document that help make or break a good presentation of your work to craftsmanship judges.

Check out these Documentation examples here free to check out from le Googles.

Contests may have different requirements so make sure to check what the judges are looking for. Here are 5 thing to remember when making your documentation.


1. Reference pictures.If you have one thing have this in your docs. Bring a reference of the character. Front, back, and side views are always a nice bonus!



Sometimes it is nice to put a reference right next to something in progress. For example VFire used the above images to show how she worked on Sheik's braid and aimed to replicate the weird criss cross at the top.
2. Progress picture.
Show your process. Did something not work out? Show that and why you chose another path. Show the evolution of your work.


3. Summarize.
Group similar methods together (e.g. when your arm…

Ep. 18 Body Positivity and You

Today's guests talk about loving your body with body positivity. Meet Turtlebunnies Cosplay and Unroyalty Cosplay (@un_royalty on instagram) as they talk about road blocks they have run into and how they are overcoming them.

Everyone should love their body, no matter what type of body you have. It can be difficult with society saying that beauty is one thing or another, but listen to these two cosplayers and what they have to say. Their advice and stories are inspiring!


As always, thanks for being here listerners!
