New Writer and Announcements!!


Welcome back! It's been a while but I promise the wait has been worth it. Over the past year I've re-evaluated what the Cosplay Stitch and Seam should be. I feel like I've found it and have exciting news for you!


First off, Pannon is now a co-writer for the blog. She has made over 300 cosplays in the 15 years she's been crafting. Her work ranges from mad armor to poofy ball gowns. She has also helped found conventions and consistently works for a few across the states. One of her most notable achievements is being one half of the international competitive team, Green Jello Cosplay.

Pannon's experience will help bring in "behind the con scenes" as well as a plethora of tutorials and crafting stories. We will also be doing convention reviews and cosplay contest discussions.

Going behind the scenes often means
VFire looks like a nerd... but also,
Pannon makes a great Prince Sidon.

Speaking of content - The Stitch and Seam is going podcast!! Episodes will be airing within a few weeks as we talk shop about anything and everything in our community.

Guest writers? Yes! We will have a number of guest writers and speakers throughout the year along with our classic Cosplayer Feature getting back into full swing. Want to write/chat with us? Send in an email ;) We would love to have a variety of crafters join us.

I have many more announcements to come but I figure I will start with these first. Don't want to overwhelm you with too much info.
 
We believe in you!!

I'm looking forward to hearing your comments and suggestions. As always, thank you for reading. You are all beautiful,
VFire and Pannon

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…
