Let your cosplay run wild.
Have you ever seen an old man wearing a red colored cap and red coat that has white fur at all edges? Yes. You have guessed it right, he is the most popular person among the Christians living all over the world. Most of the children under seven years of age get fascinated by the round glasses that the Santa wears and the pompom that hands with the cap that he wears. If we have a look at the most popular fictional characters of all times we will definitely see Santa Claus at the top of the list. Most of the people who believe in Santa Clause don’t know anything about his origin. In general he is known for giving gifts to the most obedient and polite kids of the world. The Santa Claus wears the dress to make the kids feel comfortable with him and so that the kids remember him. If you happen to visit an apparel store in the months of November and December you won’t find a store that has a special isle for the Santa Clause costumes and accessories. Not a single apparel manufacturer in the western world is there who does not make the Santa Claus dresses.
I was looking for something new to watch when the pandemic hit and my son introduced me to the American anime Rwby. It was an instant winner for me and I wasted no time watching all 7 chapters. I am now patiently waiting for chapter 8 to be released in November. Rwby, created by the late Monty Oum, is set in a futuristic world called Remnant. The story centers around 4 teenage girls who meet at Beacon Academy in a city called Vale. The girls, along with the other students, train to become warriors called hunters and huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long make up team Rwby who set out to fight monsters called the Grimm and protect the people of Remnant.
With the season of family gatherings coming up, and the COVID-19 pandemic in full gear, it becomes easy to lose the light in your life. These are scary times for all of us, not being able to do all of the activities we would like to do, not being able to see all of the people we want to see, and I’m sure we’ve all had our moments of feeling sad, maybe even depressed, thinking, “When will this all be over?”
Violence fills the very fabric of the city of Gotham, it seems that there is a tragedy in every brick, soaked into the streets like blood and oil. Icons of crime rule this city behind the scenes, no matter how hard the detectives try to stop it. Delicious deviants with personal vendettas to never let that bat win, no matter how many times they are locked away or are thrown off buildings, denied any feeling.
The World's Greatest Detective The sound of water dripping in a cave, the sound of a swarm of bats intensifying, and the sound of a storm at night. We've seen him again and again over the years. He's known by many names: The Caped Crusader, The Dark Knight, The World's Greatest Detective, and, of course, Batman. Over the years, Batman has been portrayed by Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney (sigh), Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, and yet to be seen Robert Pattinson. This year I decided to make a Batman costume from scratch. I've always been a DC fan and more particularly, a Batman fan. I hope you enjoy this as much as I've enjoyed the process of creating something spectacular.
Boy Wonder Riddle me this, riddle me that,...what's red, gray, and yellow that acts so humbly and mellow? A bird as graceful as this might be very hard to miss. I, the Riddler (just kidding), have had my fill of Robin. You might know him as Boy Wonder, a Teen Titan, or most commonly as Batman's trusted sidekick, Robin has been portrayed through several incarnations over the years, namely Jason Todd, Dick Grayson, Tim Drake, and Damian Wayne. I custom made a batman costume from scratch and was like, wait a minute, what about Robin? I figured I might as well complete the dynamic duo by custom making a robin costume.
“Whose hands are those?!”, my Grandmother exclaimed in false surprise as she continued to wash the dishes that Sunday evening. My 6-year-old self stifled a laugh from behind the other side of the sink where I was holding up my hands, wiggling my fingers over the edge of counter. My grandmother could see my hands, but not the rest of me.
My name is Ecaterina Grigore. I am 29 years of age and live in Adelaide, South Australia. I have a 5 year old son and a little daughter on the way. We have been celebrating the fun Halloween tradition since my son was 2 years of age. As my son has gotten older he has formed his own opinions and likings to certain movies and themes.
Six months ago, I was in a very dark place in life. I was in a daily struggle with rapid cycling between depression and mania. As a wife and mother struggling with maintaining mental health, every day is unpredictable. From self-isolation to unprovoked crying spells, anything I tried to help myself cope was not working. I spoke with my doctor every week and my therapist twice a week in attempt to successfully readjust my medicine dosage. But even with all that, I fought with my own thoughts. I was getting desperate to heal, but the future looked hopeless. I could not bear to have my daughter growing up watching her mother fight such demons. So, one night as I sat planning “the move”, I decided for whatever reason, to watch a few Tik Tok videos. The very first video I found was by a person named Casper Oliver. They were creating some Transformer Holomatter Avatar cosplay scenes. After watching a few of their videos, I searched for other cosplayer videos. I discovered a whole community of Transformer cosplayers. I observed the joy they experienced while donning their custom outfits. I wanted that happiness too, so I decided to make my very first cosplay video. I tagged Casper and a few others, and amazingly they all answered!! They raved over my costume and flooded me with love and support. Later the next day, I received an invitation to a Discord server chat room where all these cosplayers hung out, shared ideas, and offered love and support to each other. That was the boost I needed to keep fighting. So, I began making Tik Toks and cosplaying. I spent hours researching costume supplies and watching how to videos on Youtube. A week after joining the server, I found Casper on Instagram, and after sending them a friend request and having it accepted, I learned he had two podcasts, one called Jar of Rebuke. So, I decided to check it out. The story casts queer entertainers to play its characters, and the characters are part of the queer community as well. JOR follows the story of Dr. Jared Hel, an amnesiac who struggles to find himself again. I was hooked from the first episode, so much so I got permission from Casper to create a live stream series on YouTube called Sit, Sip & Solve. When each new JOR episode, I listen and take notes, with the intent of developing theories to solving the mystery of Dr. Jared Hel. At one point in the story, Jared has an encounter with a cryptid creature called a Not-Deer. A Not-Deer is described as a deer with perfectly symmetrical antlers, human-like back legs and a third eye on its head. So, I am showing support for my friend Casper Oliver, the creator of JOR and the voice actor of Jared, by wearing a Not-Deer costume for Halloween. Thankfully, all of this provided me a way to cope until my meds were fixed and I became stable again. My daughter and husband have been amazed at how something as simple as cosplaying pulled me back from making the greatest mistake I could have ever made. Against all odds, I survived, and now my family and I have a new hobby we enjoy doing together. So much so that we are planning our first Comic-Con adventure! If my costume is chosen, part of my winnings will be given to JOR to help continue this awesome story. I have gained amazing friends and countless forms of love. I owe Casper my life, and even though you cannot put a price on a life, I can show my gratitude by loving and supporting their dream, while accepting their support of me as well. If I am chosen as the winner of this costume contest, I will be donating part of my winnings to JOR so that the show may go on. ❤️❤️🦌🦌🏳️🌈🏳️🌈
Creating duct tape patterns of your body is a core skill for any cosplayer. It helps to create patterns that are exactly the right fit for your body, and with a little bit of dexterity (or help!), it is one of the easiest ways to build armor or outfit pieces. So without any further delay, let’s get into it!
