Working on projects, has been really great. I normally hate shopping, but shopping for cosplay supplies, is like wearing tinted glasses, where everything has potential, and you never really look at an item the same way again. I've tried explaining stages of construction, and posting different work in progress pictures to help visualize my madness. I'm still terrible at explain things, so feedback has been greatly welcomed.
I looked through all my old submission, and noticed that certain skills do repeat. Basic techniques that can be applied to several situations, with minor modifications. I think, many people use tutorials in a similar way, to help spark an idea on how to construct something with their own skills set and experience. I haven't always posted all the costumes I've worked on, because of the overlapping details. However, I make far less mistakes now, then I did even two years ago. (Things look a lot better too... haha)
For this reason, I'd like to ask what you guys would like to see explained, or perhaps better explained. I thought about taking down my old posts over time, and editing them with a little more wisdom and options to get similar results. I'd do this with my new costumes I'm currently starting, but I don't want people to believe they magically turned out great the first time. There will always be trial and error, and years of practice helps a great deal. So don't give up, or beat yourself up if something doesn't look perfect the first time around, or even the first dozen times.
If no one minds either way, I'll just post finished costumes & props, or notable construction that might be useful. I've been a DA member for a long time now, through quiet and busy months. So thanks everyone for your support.
