Most of my costumes are usually sewn by my friends or family of my friends who are willing to lend a hand to me and my dumbass hobby, but I am slowly learning how to sew myself, but that’s besides the point!!!! (ps if you like this cosplay check out the creator’s costume blog here.
HOWEVER, when it comes to my cosplays, if the character has a prop, I made it.
I have a background in prop making, and have made props for many different projects including The Guild:
and the Borderlands 2 live action commercial:
My most recent projects were my Rose Quartz sword and shield that I wore to Anime Expo
I need to take on more work that I do already in order to pay all my bills, which is why I’m finally opening up cosplay prop commissions.
Each prop would have to be priced differently for the plethora of variables each item has.
A rough estimate however would be as follows:
A paper-mache Batgirl cowl - 40 dollars Rose Quartz Shield - 95 dollars Rose Quartz Sword - 200 dollars An ocean themed lute like Zaboo’s - 400 dollars
Please keep in mind these are rough estimates, and that the prices would vary depending on your deadline, material preference, sizes, and materials I have in stock versus materials that have to be bought. Paypal would be our payment option of choice, of course if you live in Los Angeles County I have no qualms about cash and self pick-up.
An initial deposit would be needed before I begin to work on your prop to procure materials, and then the rest sent before I ship so that we can calculate in shipping costs.
If interested please email me at email@example.com or message me directly on Tumblr.
and ah.. this is an unexpected question, considering how i don’t really make graphics anymore, haha. but anyway… let me see.. i started off googling tutorials for the basics, like those on how to make gifs, how to use textures, how to use brushes etc. then i moved on to more advanced tutorials which, i remembered distinctly, involved the use of the transformation function in one of them haha. difficult, but fun! and then after that it was pretty much ‘let-me-click-everything-and-see-what-happens’…
i often visited this website then. also there are lots of tutorials posted by helpful users here, like..this one, and this one. i’m sure you would be able to find more through the tumblr tags!
oh yeah, you may find this helpful to start with!!

Hello! All my life I've been intelligent, and difficult classes came easily to me. I'm going to university in August, and I need to really learn how to study. Do you have any tips? PS--Your blog/notes are so soothing to me
First of all, thanks for the compliment! It makes my heart happy knowing that people enjoy my blog. :-)
That’s actually such a valid concern about going to university. My first couple of years high school, I never really had to try and grades came easily to me. When I finally took a hard class and got an F on a quiz was when I realized that sometimes you have to put in the work to get the grades.
My biggest tip would be repetition. If it’s math, do the problems, then find more practice ones on the Internet. If it’s history, write your notes out over and over (that got me a 4.47 GPA senior year). The reason I make my notes pretty is because I write and rewrite and revise and understand them. Quiz yourself. Flashcards help a lot for vocab!!!
Also, don’t go over it once and be like “oh ya I got it I’m good” unless you never ONCE had to look back at a cheat sheet or your notes when quizzing yourself.
I hope this helps a ton, and good luck! I know you’ll do fabulously!! xoxo
