Exciting things are on their way!

I'm cancelling the second feature for this month, but there is a good side to it! My second feature was a local cosplayer who is awesome and deserves some really great attention. In fact, I am bumping her to a new month so that she can be a part of something brand new. For those who do not know, I write for UGeek Magazine. It is a Utah magazine that is free and has all sorts of goodies in it. I write a cosplay Tip with the cosplayer centerfold. UGeek releases every other month so I am changing how I do features on the blog to include the UGeek article.

In short, every other month (the odd months) will be featured in UGeek as well as here on the Stitch and Seam. These will be local Utah (and possibly other states too) cosplayers. The even months will branch out and I will feature people from all over the world. this may change up a bit in the future but for now I want to try out this new model of blogging. I am so excited!!! (I may or may not reorganize the blog again because of this, muahahaha!)

Keep your eyes and ears out for a contest by the way ;) Since I cut my thumb on the bandsaw I was thinking of doing a fun Giveaway/Contest and featuring horror stories on here.  I should be announcing that sooooon!

Thanks for reading and happy crafting!! - 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. 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!
