Five simple things you can do to improve your cosplay

ciciascloset:

  1. Do your research! 

Spend at least half an hour gathering reference images. These are going to be so important when you actually start buying material and making the cosplay. Because you always need to make 100% sure.

What color are you, even!?!??!?!

     2. Know your materials!
If you’re not really familiar with the material, don’t just buy it based off of tutorials online!. Ask the assistants at the fabric store which type of fabric is most appropriate for what you’re doing. Ask the person at the hardware store if that piece of wood is sturdy enough for what you want or if a pipe is better. Ask someone who has already done that cosplay, read write ups. Know what you’re going to work with.

Like knowing when to use which scissor

Finishes raw edges

     3. Budget, budget, budget!

You don’t want to start a cosplay only to find out you can’t finish it for the con or can’t buy the appropriate material. You don’t want to go all out to buy Worbla only to find out that you can’t buy the right wig. This doesn’t only apply to money; it also applies to time. Don’t start an extremely hard cosplay (for your skill set) a week before, it will probably look rushed. To help me see whether or not I can actually make a cosplay I use this spreadsheet (it’s also good for commissions).  

     4. Make-up!

We are beautifully imperfect human beings, not dolls or animations. Our eyes are usually not bigger than the sun, our skin is not smoother than a babies bottom. Cosplay make up is not the same as layering thick makeup nor is it like daily makeup. To be more specific anime eyes are different. This playlist should be of help.

   5. Work out all the kinks!

Ironing is one of those simple actions that makes your cosplay look more professional. It is simple yet often overlooked. Protip; always iron to make sure your seams lay flat, don’t have wrinkles and perfect your curves hems. This is literally one of the most important parts of sewing.

My first Google Hangout with the thenerdsofcolor is now online! With me are fellow cosplayers of color Ian of ComixNCosplayNel of Saturday Morning Cosplay, and bettyfelon of comicsalliance.

We discussed our first cosplaying experiences, “Heroes of Cosplay”, con etiquette and how NOT to treat cosplayers you meet at a con, what it’s like to be a cosplayer of color, all the recent Marvel announcements, the new Batgirl design & more. Also why Dragon*Con is THE BEST CON, PERIOD. Check it out!
