Anonymous sent: i was wondering if you can help telling me how to make your Cheshire cat cosplay from Pandora Hearts? me and my friends are cosplaying pandora hearts and ill be cheshire and im having alot of trouble working on the arm/hand piece of the cosplay? and im asking for help.

Hello dear anon! Thank you for the ask :)

I hope I can help you with this. Do you know how to do the rest of the cosplay or do you need more explanation that just the arms? I’ll explain the arms for now and if you got more questions, just ask :)
I’ll put it under read more though, as it’s a pretty long explanation and probably not everyone is interested in it xD

costoureurope sent: ☆ Hi! We're going to make a documentary film that aims to reveal the secrets of European cosplay! As a cosplayer, how would you describe the cosplay culture of your country in three words or more? ☆ Please tag your answers #costour, so we'll be able to see them! : )

Hello! Thanks for your ask :) We hope we can give you the answers you look for.

The three of us are from Austria. Cosplay culture in our country has changed over the years I think, as there are several kinds of cosplayers and also attitudes towards the subject. I personally really have to say that fortunately I have only met the positive ones yet (and I would like to leave it like that xD).

Cosplayers are open-minded, friendly and love to help each other. Some small flaws are, that some people take the hobby too seriously and act in-character too much - also outside of conventions or cosplay gatherings, which looks really odd to people who don’t know about cosplay.

That is how I have experienced the Austrian cosplay community. Maybe I have yet to see the real downsides of our cosplay community, but as for now - and the past 5 years - it has been like that and I like the cosplay culture and the direction it is going (as the quality of the cosplays has become steadily better, while people didn’t lose interest in this hobby - that makes me really glad).

…….. i guess that was more than 3 words XD so let’s positively summarize it: Cosplay culture and especially the cosplayer in Austria can be described as “open-minded, friendly and helpful”.

I hope I could help you a little with this :)

Happy Valentine&#8217;s Day, dear followers! Even if you don&#8217;t like that day (like me &#8230; I hate all the hearts, roses and other kitschy things that are floating around everywhere today.. *absolutely not a romantic person*), don&#8217;t be grumpy because it&#8217;s Friday too - that means it&#8217;s almost weekend!  grumpy Seto - Pascal cheerful Crow - Violetta picture by greencat

This is what I worked on in the past two weeks! I wanted to do much more, but unfortunately there was no time due to university homeworks and projects.
It’s the Rune Blade for my Milla cosplay when we are cosplaying Tales of Xillia this year :D I’m so looking forward to the cosplay already! We’re gonna have a huuuuuge group and I really hope everyone can get their costumes done in time &gt;0&lt;’
