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!
I was introduced to this challenge at the end of 2017 by Garnet Runestar when she announced she would be attempting to make Belle's winter dress in a single day. I knew I wanted to try the challenge and I knew exactly what cosplay I wanted to make. Keep reading to find out more!
Once I had my designs prepared (see Part 1), building the costume was pretty fun. I was simultaneously working on Raven and Te Ka so I borrowed some techniques from each build to really make this design unique.
How do you tackle the difficult task of constructing a cosplay with limited reference photos? This blog post is Part 1 of my Moon Knight cosplay write up, and it focuses on my decisions for design and construction. Read the full post below.
Raven from Teen Titans is my spirit animal. I identify with her so hard, but I knew I wanted to cosplay some version of a redesign of her. Cue NoFlutter's early design sketch. she's since redesigned Raven in a gorgeous design, but I really wanted to cosplay her original concept.

I was approached by a group of cosplayers to join this epic mashup group cosplay. I was asked in early March, and the con was end of April. That's a very short amount of time to put resources together. Read the full blog below to see how I pulled it off!
As a cosplayer, I tend to build and build and build and some costumes unfortunately never get work again. So I've decided to retire a few old cosplays, and this is their tribute post.
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!
Today I get to share a guest post written by a special friend of mine! Shelley has been a huge inspiration to me and a very talented cosplayer. She wrote this breakdown for her Rapunzel cosplay and is letting me share it with you guys while I work on my own costumes! It's a great read and it's nice to see the approach other people take to their projects. Enjoy the read!
Before we get into full Christmas swing, let's do a quick recap of the cosplay and makeup challenge I did leading up to Halloween Day!
I teamed up with We Love Colors recently to do a mystery Halloween Challenge. They sent me three different colors of tights and my challenge was to base a costume around them. Maybe it was an accident, maybe it was fate; but the main costumes I came up with all involve the same base pieces! Read on to find out all about my costumes and how I tackled this challenge.
This cosplay is a lot to take in, from the long name, to the bright and shiny armour. This was such a challenging cosplay for me, as it was my first armour cosplay, and I didn't have the time or finances to play with worbla.
On one hand, I love the flexibility of the foam on certain parts, but on the other hand, I would love to see a few more ridgid elements. This is all things I can look into when I rebuild the armour.
This was such a fun cosplay to make and I am honored to be a part of a wonderful group for Edmonton Expo this coming weekend. I posted my shield tutorial a while ago and the other princesses in the group followed my tutorial so we could have matching shields! It was so amazing to see everyone come together! I will have group photos to share soon. For now, check out how I made this cosplay!
Yin was a fairly simple build, even though I tried some new things and gained some new skills. Keep reading for a complete breakdown on how I made this cosplay!
