Unlikely but maybe to both questions. I’ve got school to think about and a trip to NYCC might not be the best idea.

Where are all of these new followers coming from? I’m surprised you guys are following me considering the lack of recent posts D: (which by the way I’ll be putting out some new pictures soon) But really, where?

Anonymous said: Hello, how did you make the hair for your Auto Responder cosplay? Are there any advices you could give someone who's desperately trying to "build" something like that?

This is the original tutorial for the hair. Some additional comments since I recently remade the hair: trying to make craft foam mimic hair is difficult. Keep an eye on the flow of the pieces to make it look as natural as possible. Glue as little as you can get away with. It makes it easier to fix mistakes. You’ll probably have to pull up at least a few “hair” pieces. Pricing: $4-6 craft foam, $6 spray paint, cheaper than a wig and lasts longer, but time consuming to make. It took me about 4-5 hours straight. Best of luck! (one of these days I’ll make a picture tutorial…)

Hey there! I completely redid my Brobot outfit a few months ago, but never ended up posting photos of it, so here it is! My great friend Matt took these awesome photos for me (but he has no public profile thing for me to properly credit him with :C) but he’s great!

Anonymous said: Just wondering, -sorry if you've gotten this before- how did you make the katana for your brobot cosplay? I'm working on one myself and I'm not sure how I should make the katana blade.

The katana is actually a boken, wooden sword, that I spray painted. I’ll probably make one from scratch at some point, but I’m not the best person to ask.

I get craft foam from whatever craft store is closest to me at the time. Micheals, AC Moore, and other craft stores usually have craft foam. It’s a pretty popular material for kid’s crafts. I’ve actually been making craft foam wings and it’s worked pretty well for me so far, so it’s definitely an option for you.

Anonymous said: Are you going to AB this year?

Yes! I’ll be there! If you’re looking for photos though, I might disappoint. I’ve lost some of the joy that used to come to me when I photographed cosplayers, so I won’t be taking as many pictures this year. It’s just not as fun anymore.
