Podcast First Birthday!

Wow, it has been a year already? Pannon messaged me and told me and I couldn't believe how the time had flown so quickly. I am not super great with words but I am kind of emotional writing this. The podcast and blog would not be what it is today without all our supporters and listeners. YOU make our podcast what it is and I seriously LOVE all you for it.

Don't forget, Episode 50 is coming up fast and we are still looking for questions. The big 50 is going to be a Q&A with VFire and Pannon. Send us your questions and we will answer anything on the episode. Shout outs to everyone who submits a Q. You can email us or fill out the form on this website.

We went from 0 to 100 really fast with the podcast airing in happy little May last year. Our Facebook group started the same day and it has the best people in it. It may be small but it is full of caring and supportive crafters. Everyone in there has made me so proud!

The amount of downloads we have received is far more than I ever thought it would reach, especially with only 45 episodes to date. The podcast was started to get out some ideas and commentary Pannon and I had on the cosplay community. To see the love put into it by our listeners, we are so happy to keep going and hope to keep entertaining you all with our weird shenanigans!


The reviews are so helpful! Especially happy for any feedback we get. RandomHatter123 is so polite and we are taking your feedback to heart. It also so nice to see the support from these reviews. I have no idea who any of you are but I hope we meet someday and say thanks in person! (Except Alaura, I know who you are. Still would love to meet in person ;) )

Happy listeners, you have no idea how much your support and kind words has helped us. this podcast has been a lifeline to me during a hard year of my life. I won't go too much into details... but thank you again.


Thank you Ko-fi donaters! YOU ROCK! Thanks so much for your donations. Every little bit helps with our bandwidth support.

I am so glad Pannon was interested in co-hosting with me. It was just a wild idea and a way to get my ideas out without having to type in blog format. Pannon, thank you so much. She is so organized and always keeps me on topic with each recording.

Also a big thank you to David! We would not sound nearly as good without all your magical and super skilled editing. You amaze me and I love your dedication to podcasting. Seriously look up his other podcast. I will link them for you: "Dungeons and Chill" and "Comic Trades Monthly" deserve so much attention. David puts a lot of hard work into all his podcasts.

To all our listeners - WE LOVE YOU!

Love,
VFire and the Stitch and Seam Team

How to Make Auron's Blade - The Cosplay Armory

As promised, James of the Cosplay Armory shares his knowledge on how to make Auron's Katana from the game, Final Fantasy X. I have been very excited for this as I followed his page as he worked on the blade. I hope you enjoy it! - 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. 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!
