Ep. 22 - Pamper Day!

Sometimes the best way to prep for a convention is to have a self-care day! Take a moment to relax and enjoy the pr-con pamper with Pannon as she relaxes with other cosplayers before Anime Banzai 2018. From manicures to pedicures, it is nice to sit back and take a break since conventions can be stressful to prep for.


Special thanks to Le Nails at South Town Mall for hosting all these amazing cosplayers.


The event was hosted by Pannon and pics were shared on our cosplay group on Facebook. Come join in the fun! Share your cosplay pamper days with us! Pre-Con Pampers for the win!


Thanks for listening and for everyone who able to make the event!

Ep. 21 - Cosplay in a Hurry!

Anime Banzai was last weekend and it was a blast! this episode has been up since Friday, now the accompanying blog-post can join in! I hope those who attended Anime Banzai had tons of fun. The Stitch and Seam Team had a lot of fun collecting Horror Stories for the Halloween Episode coming up.

Although we advise avoiding making cosplays in a time crunch here is an episode with advice on how handle a fast paced, deadline demanding, cosplay speed build. Sometimes it is unavoidable so here is how to speed build with keeping your health, and hopefully mind, sane.


What cosplays have you made on short notice? Share them here or in the Facebook Group! VFire has her weekend build of Pandora Hearts, Xerxes Break, in his Pandora Organization uniform below. It was fun build and she was surprised at how much she learned about jacket making. Next time she will do better and not have such short sleeves ;)


Thanks for listening, The Stitch and Seam Team




Ep. 020 - Cosplay Contests: Audio and Sound Editing

Audio can be very tricky. How do I stop the echoing sound? What kind of hardware do I need? What about software? This week's guest is none other than our very own sound editor, David Jeffress!


David guides us in sound editing and answering your questions about audio for cosplay contests. Thank you David for doing this amazing episode!


The most basic things you need for sound editing are a microphone and an editor. Your phone, lapel mic, nicer microphones, etc. Surprisingly your cell phone has a decent mic for recording! There are editing apps on your phone as well but we suggest Audacity as a nice free program for beginners. You can download audacity here if you want to give it a swing.


Also a big thank you to our group on the book of faces. The questions in this episode were provided by members from the Facebook group, which anyone can join here: The Cosplay Stitch and Seam Group. Questions can also be emailed to the blog via the contact form or directly through CosplayStitchAndS…

Ep. 019 - Cosplay BBQ's

Cosplay Barbecues and Picnics are a rare and fun treat for the summer. Listen to this fun group of cosplayers who love the sun and having parties at the park. There is also bonus charity work!

Cosplay barbecues or picnics are great to find and make new friends in your area. It is out of the convention scene and gives more time for people to relax and talk.
It's also nice to meet up with friends you already have and catch up.
You don;t have to be in cosplay wither. You can just meet with like minded nerds and maybe play a card game or two.
This was a ton of fun and a big thanks to Rennagade Cosplay for making a ver Nerdy BBQ of Awesome!
