August Hiatus and Fun News!!!

BIG NEWS! The Cosplay Stitch and Seam will be on hiatus for the month of August. During this time VFire will be preparing for a new school term to start and making TWO new cosplays. Yes, TWO. She is insane... but it will be worth it. You can watch the progress and inasanity on her facebook page while you wait for updates. :D But first, the latest project that she finished.

Now I don't usually post a whole lot on the blog about my own cosplays but I am really proud of this one. I posted a progress pic a long time ago for Sheik and here is the finished product:

Real leather armor, spandex chain maille print (I said screw it to real chain maillle and it added a cool video game vibe to it), and the bow actually works as a 15/20 pound pvc pipe bow. I also had the chance to work on some metal working and melted pewter and aluminum for the project.

So the next two projects? MUCH simpler, yet still a little complex. I am planning on assisting two cosplayers with their epic costumes by being Link for them. The first is Volvagia from Ocarina of Time, being made by SailorCrafty. I will be cosplaying Goron (red) tunic Link with a plush Megaton Hammer. Look at SailorCrafty's progress below!

She scuplted his head! That is so freaking amazing I can't even!!! I really look forward to cosplaying with her at the beginning of September.

Sailor Crafty will be the dragon Volvagia and VFire will be Link.
Plush Megaton Hammer, ah yiss!

The next cosplay I will be working on is Skyward Link. I will be cosplaying with both Cassini Closet as the Loftwing and Renna as Impa. We will hopefully be rocking these cosplays at NDK in September. 

Cassini will be building the Loftwing cosplay, Renna will be Impa,
and VFire will be Link.
I don't think I will actually ride the loftwing, unless Cassi knows how
to actually fly.... >.>

I have a lot to do and only one month to make it!!! Since I am also preparing for school, the blog will be on hiatus but check out my facebook page for progress pics and share in my excitement and adventure as I attempt to make some fun cosplays. Also, you should watch for progress pics of the others too. :D

As always, thank you for reading and stay epic! See you on facebook or next month with the next feature!!

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…

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.

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.
