Hello~ I'm not exactly sure if you'll remember since ACen was so long ago haha but I was the Spell Thief Lux you had complimented at the photoshoot and I would just like to say that it means a lot coming from you and I was absolutely speechless. I plan on cosplaying Vi someday and yours has inspired me to work hard on it and make it the best I can. I really look up to your work! Good luck with future projects~
Ahh Thank you so much! Messages like this really make my day!! I do remember you!! Your Spell Thief Lux was awesome! Hope to see you again at Acen 2014!
Hi, Missyeru! I absolutely adore all your cosplays, and I'm kinda too shy to go off anon, sorry. ;_; But I have a question about your Leona cosplay: What material did you use for the... Dangly, golden skirt/cape things? Sorry, Idk what to call them, I hope you know what I'm talking about xD
Hey there, I used eva foam for all of them, and the top layer I pulled the foam while gluing to keep the curved out shape! I hope that helps!
I am attempting a leona cosplay. I am having so much trouble making things look smooth. Did you make everything out of worbla? Even things like the shield, shoulders, and gloves?
Hey! sorry i just got your message on league RIGHT as my game started then when the game was over my client crashed!! I am so sorry! anyways, I only used worbla on my wrist bands, my brestplate, and my knee pads, and head gear the rest of my armor was all made out of evo foam. the shield was made out of 1” pink isolation foam, but the spikes were worbla. Sorry its taken me so long to respond, i’ve been at 3 conventions for the past 3 weeks
Hello! I am also working on a Vi cosplay for San Diego Comic-Con 2013 and I'm having a bit of trouble with materials to use. What did you make your breast armor out of? aaaand... Have you started her gauntlets yet? :]
I used Worbla for my breast armor and I haven’t started on the gauntlets…
Making a Cosplay, working and being a full-time student is a lot of stress for me! I'm terrible at balancing life! Haha. Sometimes I just want to give up on my cosplays because I feel like I won't make my deadlines. Then I look at costumes that you and other cosplayers make and it inspires me to finish. You're a great inspiration and your work helps me refuel my desire to make my deadlines and refuse to give up! Thanks for being such a great inspiration!
<3 Anon I feel you there, I worked 2 jobs and a internship while a full time student, it was the hardest years of my life, but IT’S SO REWARDING TO PUT ALL YOUR STRESS INTO A COSTUME! Also take a deep breath it’s okay if you have to push a cosplay back, we all have to do it, school comes first, and your costume can wait! <3 <3
I’m glad I’m an inspiration to you, it really makes me happy!!
Hiii! I kinda met you last Fanime when you were cosplaying Lux! You probably don't remember but I was cosplaying as classic Sona! XD It's crazy to think you're practically famous now! (Famous in my eyes! :D) And right now I'm like "OMG I EXCHANGED WORDS WITH HER BEFORE!" Haha yeah I'm weird. Just showing you some love and that I love your costumes and am a big fan. :) Keep up the amazing work! You are beautiful!
I DO REMEMBER YOU!!! I read this on my phone, and looked at my fanime photos I had took and literately the next day my phone died and i had to go to the apple store to get a new one, because I was going to post a photo from the fanime gathering where we both are in the same photo!
Thank you so much, and I hope we get to hang out at fanime this year!
it's you! i love love your caitlyn cosplay! I am one of your watchers on deviantart. hello! <3 is that your VI cosplay? either way, it looks great! Caitlyn has been my main for ever, but when VI came out, I knew I had to have her...just me being envious of your cosplay work because I could never make anything that awesome :3
hey!! Thanks for watching me on Deviantart too!! Also I have a few photos of my Vi cosplay floating around, but not too many!
Oh man, I saw you at PAX East (I was dressed as Dark Valkyrie Diana), and thought you looked familiar. I had no idea all this time you were .. well - you! Such a gorgeous cosplay! <3 I'll upload the pics of us sparring in a few days :)
oh hello!!! you’re DV Diana was FANTASTIC!! I can’t wait to see the photo of us!!!
hi, so i'm actually working on my first cosplay, as ashe, and i was wondering if you had any tips for her bow, and the shoulder plates she has? i'm not really sure what materials to use for those.. thanks! ps. your costume was amaaazing. i'm so in love with ashe, and you really did her justice.
In a nutshell I drew out my bow on cardboard, used 1/2” PVC pipe for the handle, then used expanda foam on both sides of the cardboard. I then carved out the shape I wanted. When I was done with that, I wrapped the expanda foam with masking tape and did 2 layers of paper mache. Here’s where I messed up. I covered the whole thing in paperclay- sanded, primed, painted and sealed. I should have used something more durable like resen, Bondo, fiberglass ect.
As far as her shoulder armor, I used 1/4” craft foam. made a flat pattern I was happy with and cut it from the foam. i then heat formed the shoulder piece to my own shoulders and then covered the foam with the same faux lamb fabric I made the rest of my cosplay with.
