Solstice Trivia!

VFire never dropped her trivia in the episode so here is your fun solstice fact of the day!

"The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere of our planet. For the Southern Hemisphere it is the longest day of the year! Not that the we have more or less than 24 hours, but the time the sun is out during that 24 hours changes with our seasons... and is part of the reason for our seasons!" - VFire's nerdy space trivia

Also here is her horrible but fun Cosplay Before Christmas story VFire made when she was being silly one year with friends. Link takes you to Deviantart. Enjoy!

As always, we love our listeners!

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. 017 - Secrets of Cosplay Docs for Contests!

This week Pannon and VFire talk about documentation for Cosplay Contests. This can be a document that help make or break a good presentation of your work to craftsmanship judges.

Check out these Documentation examples here free to check out from le Googles.

Contests may have different requirements so make sure to check what the judges are looking for. Here are 5 thing to remember when making your documentation.


1. Reference pictures.If you have one thing have this in your docs. Bring a reference of the character. Front, back, and side views are always a nice bonus!



Sometimes it is nice to put a reference right next to something in progress. For example VFire used the above images to show how she worked on Sheik's braid and aimed to replicate the weird criss cross at the top.
2. Progress picture.
Show your process. Did something not work out? Show that and why you chose another path. Show the evolution of your work.


3. Summarize.
Group similar methods together (e.g. when your arm…

Ep. 18 Body Positivity and You

Today's guests talk about loving your body with body positivity. Meet Turtlebunnies Cosplay and Unroyalty Cosplay (@un_royalty on instagram) as they talk about road blocks they have run into and how they are overcoming them.

Everyone should love their body, no matter what type of body you have. It can be difficult with society saying that beauty is one thing or another, but listen to these two cosplayers and what they have to say. Their advice and stories are inspiring!


As always, thanks for being here listerners!
