Hello Brrr-months & Life Updates

We're only about four months away to 2018 (let that sink in) and I haven't even gone halfway through my cosplay list. There hasn't been any conventions here lately so my motivation's been down in the dumps. I have a lot of ideas to write for this blog all piled up but my brain seems to be refusing to cooperate..

I'm just drifting along the flow right now but I'm still trying to stay right on track. Even though I've been pretty slow and behind schedule, I make sure I'm still making progress.

Hoshizora Rin Little Devil DIY Prop tutorial

I finally finished the remaining piece of my Little Devil cosplay which has been pretty arduous considering my lack of fancy tools but it has been a fulfilling experience and I learned new techniques. Full worklog of the cosplay will be up as soon as I get decent full body shot of the completed costume.

This is the third part of my Hoshizora Rin Little Devil ver. cosplay project.

  • Rubber sheet / craft foam
  • 1m pvc pipe
  • thin cardboard
  • pink non stretch fabric
  • A fake rose & leaves (at least three)
  • beads & string
  • plastic folder (you won't be needing much)
  • black, red, pink & gold paint
  • wood/white glue
  • super glue/contact cement
  • hot glue
  • crack filler (should dry hard and can be sanded down)
  • paint brush
  • cutter / x-acto knife
  • sand paper / dremel

Why Do You Cosplay?

I have asked myself this question before when I first established this blog back in 2015. It was suppose to be my starting post but I can never seem to put them into words properly. A year or so later and the question popped up again while I was scrolling through my timeline. I grew up a bit since then and I was able to finally write how I really feel about it.

Hoshizora Rin Little Devil Wings DIY Tutorial

It took me three tries to finally make it look like how I envisioned it. It's not exactly big but it still takes up quite space so I wanted to make it travel/storage easy by making it in pieces that can be put together and apart when not in use.

This is the second part of my Hoshizora Rin Little Devil ver. cosplay project.

  • 2mm Rubber sheet/ craft foam
  • Thin wire
  • Masking tape
  • Black & Pink (wasn't available so I had to mix red & white in equal parts) paint
  • Elastics (preferably black. Unfortunately I used white because I ran out because of too many mistakes)
  • Fabric (color & type is up to you as long as it's not stretchy)
  • Thick & sturdy cardboard
  • Snap buttons
  • Velcro
  • Feather lace (optional)
  • Tissue

  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Hot glue, Super Glue (or any strong adhesive), Plain white glue (for priming)
  • Thread & needle
  • Pattern paper (or any paper to sketch the pattern)
  • Sandpaper
