Cosplay Tutorial: Wigs

Alright, this is going to be very helpful not only for you, but also for me. I say this because this a special tutorial for all of your wig problems, like how to spike it, how to make curly wigs straight, how to dye it a different color, etc. Me, I'll be using the spiking tutorial because I'll be doing a Pride Lands Sora from KH2 and I'll be using his human hair instead of his lion form hair.

Anyway, this site has everything you need to know; however, I'll be splitting it up into parts for anyone that is looking for a particular tutorial, okay. So don't be confused if the site is broken up into sections. Here ya go:

Okay folks, have fun because I know I am XD

Cosplay Tutorial: How To Create a Keyblade

Okay, are you a Kingdom Hearts I and II fanatic? I bet you're going to cosplay (or for you girls, crossplay) Sora. Well, if you're going to do that, you can't go without a Keyblade.

To be real honest with you, it's almost always cheaper to create your own Keyblade and let me tell you why. If you hire a prop commissioner, they will charge you big amount of bucks for a Keyblade. You know the term "you get what you pay for," that also applies to cosplay as well. So, if you're the adventurous type and want to try to create a Keyblade, by all means, go for it!

This guy by the name of featherweight has a WONDERFUL How-To Tutorial on the Keyblade. Now, it mainly shows you how to create the Kingdom Keyblade, but I guarantee you folks, you're going to be satisfied^_^ This person even gives out a visual step by step to follow along with the typed tutorial. I'm in the process of creating my own Keyblade, with some arrangements due do unknown places to purchase particular materials^^; Anyway, here's the link:

Good luck to ya folks, follow the instructions, and spend wisely^_^

Cosplay Tutorial: Fursuits, Paws, & Feet

Here is a tutorial for any fursuits, paws, and paw feet! Just to let you know is that I've experienced the paws and the feet. The paws are not really difficult when you follow the instructions. The only thing I can say is if you want to change the length of the gloves, then all you need to do is trace your own hand only go outside your hand to your desired length. As a somewhat experienced cosplayer, I totally recommend this site for fursuits, paws, and paw feet. Here's the link to the paw tutorial of the site:

This link is for the feet paws. I've also experienced creating the feet paws and it's a real challenge if you're not use to it. The only tip I can give you is if you're thinking about make the toes one color and the other part another color, just make sure that you have just enough of both fabrics before continuing. Now, as promised, here's the link to the feet paws.

Okay, now if you're looking for a how-to tutorial on fursuits/mascots, heads, fursuit tails etc., then this site will be the best for you. It's the same site for the paws and feet paws; however, it'll help you on the other part if you choose to do a fursuit. Here's the link to the rest of the fursuit, heads, fursuit tails, etc. site:

There you go! This should help you on your fursuit/mascot cosplays.

Cosplay Tutorial: Introduction

Now, as a fellow cosplayer, I'm willing to help out any beginners in the cosplay world. With my tutorials, I'll put up some steps for you to follow and some pictures of the progress as it gets closer to it being finished.

Sometimes, there will be links to other tutorial websites if by any chance that they already exist. Like, if you were looking for a tutorial on making paws or paw feet and there's a very helpful tutorial for you, then I'll put up the link to that site where the tutorial is located. If not anything, it saves you a lot of time of looking up a tutorial for that.

When I have any other cosplay that I'm doing, then I'll do my best to share with you on some of my experiences when dealing with different type of props or costumes of the cosplay. I'll even throw in some tips to help you a little bit.

Alright this should get you excited on creating cosplays. Talk to ya soon!
