June Hiatus

The Stitch and Seam will be taking a break for June! VFire is moving homes and getting married next month so the blog will sit and look pretty in the meantime. Check back in July for the next cosplayer feature and a new "How They Made...." entry! The blog might even get a make over too. I am also working on a  secret project that might be revealed in July as well. (Hint: Anyone notice that the tutorial link vanished a few weeks ago? Hmm, maybe it will show up somewhere?) Thank you every one who reads and helps with this blog! It has become more than I imagined and I am so glad to see it do so well! Thank you!

In the meantime: VOTE! Haha, or at the very least check out the amazing cosplays in the Cosplay Otaku Idol website! I entered this picture of Wander because my friend Sadee did such a wonderful job with this shot! We spent half a day "wandering" on the mountain behind my house a while back. You can click the picture to be taken to the cosplay voting website. Thank you!

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. 010 - Cosplay Contests 101

This episode will be the first in a series. The series will start in a few weeks as we get through some old episodes, but we wanted to get some hype going and get questions brewing about cosplay contests. This first episode covers some basics and questions/answers from cosplayers in our community.

We hope this summary episode gives everyone a good idea of how to prep for a contest and what to expect if you have never heard of one before.

Thank you for listening. We are loving the feedback and Horror Stories. You all rock!

Ep. 009 - The Cosplay Golden Rule

This week we go more in depth about cosplay, consent, and bullying in our community. Our community should be uplifting and encourage creativity and here is how to do it!

Also, share your horror stories at CosplayStichAndSeam @ or send a request/question and you may hear it on the podcast. You might even inspire an entire episode.
