I'm a 22 year old cosplayer currently studying psychology in college. I've been cosplaying for about three years now and I'm still learning a lot about cosplaying and sewing and such.|
My current favorite cosplay is my Minako from P3P. She's such an awesome interesting character plus the plot of P3 is just beautiful to me. Also I just love how my Minako wig looks on me. XD
My main con is AnimeNext and I try to attend it every year and so far it's been working out well for me.

You want to make plushies? Tips and resources listEdit: added a part about fabric selection before 'where do I start'!MagnaStorm
Ever since I posted Wolf Link and Midna I've been getting an influx of messages asking me to teach, reveal my secrets, take people under my wing, and so on.

I hope this will be helpful to someone!
First off, the reality. The big secret. The key to becoming a good plush artist is...
I can already feel the glares and exasperation but hear me out first.
One thing I've noticed with a lot of the messages I got were that a lot of people were scared of screwing up.
Ahri Cosplay - Tails TutorialHi again loves!Feoranna
So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)

*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro
First you will decide how large you want your t
