This Week In Cosplay: Jul 21 - Jul 28, 2014
- The cosplay tutorial list now has a legend, explaining what the icon beside a tutorial link means. If you want more detail check out this post.
- Love this hobby? You might want to learn about cosplay’s history in this article titled: 75 Years of Capes and Face Paint.
- The World Cosplay Summit (WCS) kicks off in Japan. 20 countries sent their top cosplayers to compete! Check out their opening ceremonies which will be going on until August 3rd.
- Geeks for CONsent managed to get 2,600 signatures on their petition for San Diego Comic Con to set up a clear harassment policy at the convention. [secondary article here] [and a third, because this is a popular topic]
- That’s right, it was SDCC this weekend and tons of stars experienced our hobby while hiding in the crowd. Stars such as Daniel Radcliffe, Audrina Patridge, Adam Savage, Jaden Smith and Peter Jackson.
(If you like Adam Savage’s Alien Spacesuit, you’ll love this video)
- We mentioned Marvel last week but DC fans also have a lot of new costumes to make. Check out the new movieverse Batman costume and Wonder Woman’s ensemble.
- Speaking of Batman, you might get inspired by these “Most Insane Batman Costumes You’ve Ever Seen” from the Cape/Cowl/Create event. Zack Snyder needs to let it go…
- Amid the hype we also have news sites explaining what cosplay is, and we have reporters learning what cosplay is all about.
- If fashion is your passion, you might also enjoy seeing these pics of the “Geek Couture” fashion show from SDCC.
- It’s fun to be in costume but “Freaking out the mundanes” can lead to you getting in trouble. If you’re transporting prop weapons, it is best to keep them out of site. There are other costumed people who aren’t so well meaning.
- "Comic-Con’s Year of the Kickass Woman" an article on female attendees and female representation at SDCC.
- Confessions of a Cosplay Mom: a christian mother’s postive perspective on the hobby. (Page 3 has some tips for parents who have children interested in cosplay)
[Last Week in Cosplay]
Ps. Shoutout to tgk4 for reminding me that the joint technique I was trying to remember is called the “Dovetail" - specifically a sliding dovetail.
Also on SDCC news, Norman Chan of Tested posted his SDCC Cosplay Gallery with 750+ pictures and he’s looking for the names of cosplayers to credit them.
Ryoko-Demon is our “Cosplay Spotlight" for today. Check out some of her amazing work on our website and leave your thoughts in the comment section below. She is an extremely talented cosplayer and is by far becoming one of my favorites.
Feeling the hype for Borderlands the Pre Sequel! Might be revisiting the series for another cosplay!

Hi Hhhhammy and Gothichamlet! I just started sewing, and am attempting Rumminov’s fancystuck Jade design (with some changes, of course) and wondering if you could help me with some minor pattern changes. I’m working with Simplicity Costume Pattern 2827 design C. I bought sizes 6-12, but the bodice seems a little snug on 12. I was hoping you had some tips on adding fabric for larger arm-holes and more fabric around the upper chest. Thank you!!
Slash and Spread is a great technique to use any time you need to selectively increase/decrease the volume in a commercial pattern! Traditionally it’s used for adding gathers and changing the silhouette, but it can also be used to tailor standard patterns to better fit your body. In this case, slashing a line from the armscythe to bust point sounds right for you. As always, be sure to experiment with muslin first before cutting into your nice fabric, in order to determine how deep and wide to spread your new pattern piece.
