oilsplatteredmechanic asked: Where did you get your craft foam? I've never used it before and I'm quite curious. The way you used it on your Brobot cosplay looks amazing, and I'm curious about using it for the wings on my Davesprite cosplay.

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 asked: 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.

Anonymous asked: Did you happen to base your a robot armor on any specific type of armor? Or did you simply make it up?

I made it up as I went, but I made sure the basic frame still fit Brobot.

wowwhataurlwow asked: hey I'm sorry for bugging you but on the brobot cosplay (awesome cosplay btw) what did you use for the hair and stuff because I need to make wings for my cosplay and i dont know what to use (sorry again if im annoying you!)

I used craft foam for the entire cosplay (and thank you). I use craft foam in practically all of my costumes because I can’t sew for shit, and I’ve actually used it to make feathers for wings. It actually works pretty well I think. 

Anonymous asked: Is it okay that a person makes something kinda similar to your brobot armor?

I’d prefer that people don’t copy my brobot cosplay and cosplay him themselves, but if anyone wants to make something similar or use the general idea of the costume they can go for it :)

Holy shit where did all of these notes and followers come from? Gosh! Well, sorry I haven’t been terribly active! I’ve been out of the country for break and there was terrible wifi so I wasn’t paying too much attention to my tumblr ^^’

Sorry I haven’t been answering asks! I’m terrible about answering things. I’ll try to get around to them though .3.
