Last week we talked about overcoming guilt due to losing weight. This week I want to talk about why I will be stepping back from larger builds for a while. Read on below!
Te Ka was such a great build, as it was intended to be a duo cosplay with Shelley Elise Cosplay. I designed her human form myself, and after my first initial wear at Edmonton Expo 2017, she got some upgrades and I'm so much more in love with her now. <3 Read the walk through below!

This was an intense build featuring floating pauldrons, LED lights, and a ton of DIY experiments. This was a secret build to the public that only my patrons had access to. I also did a few tutorials for them, which will be linked at the bottom of the post. For that reason, this will be a quick guide of materials I used to build the costume, but no step by step guides as I usually do. For full acess, tips, and tricks, join my Patreon!
