"My No Face costume had fallen apart and I wanted to remake it, however I don't really like doing something twice so I decided to tweak it a bit. Luckily I saw some fan art online of Baymax as No Face. I thought it looked adorable and so I just went for it"

"I have a general sewing kit which includes needles, I think 20 colors or more of thread, safety pins, regular pins, and fray check. I also have three kinds of glue (craft glue, super glue, and sometimes a glue gun if I have a chance). Sharpies, pens, duct tape, a battery pack, and other various odds and ends fill my bag as well. It's still a work in progress as far as I'm concerned."

"At first it started as a little joke between us. She would be Tuxedo Mask and I'd be Sailor Moon. I had gotten the idea from a photo I saw of the real Ladybeard."

"The process behind Monty Jack was relatively simple & straightforward, the only real crafting we had to do was to make an aviator hat with the mouse ears already attached, a rat tail, and a Rescue Rangers logo for the jacket, everything else was store-bought -- Amazon Prime FTW! "

"When she [No Flutter] started posting her progress on her Jessica Rabbit piece, I was instantly love. It still had that Jessica Rabbit attitude and vibe, but a dress that seemed so much more fun to make and in a style that I love."

"What really made it come together were the little details such as how she styled her hair, her stance and straight face. Invoking her personality is what really makes this cosplay come to life. Over the years I have fine tuned the costume but it remains relatively the same. But the most important accessory is the passion to cosplay and the imagination to follow through"

"Not to be corny, but don't worry. This is not even your final form. It takes a really long time to get good at anything and the best thing to do is at least try. It won't happen all at once. Let time run its course, keep with it, and keep practicing. And remember to keep having fun and no one can judge you if you're having fun."

"Many of the people who come to me are frustrated or despondent because their cosplay was damaged so whenever I come along with whatever amount of tape, glue, or creativity I have, seeing them light up is incredible."

"What I've learned from cosplay is the one thing I've always have been and mostly likely always will be, and that is how I love to be hard on myself, even on my hobbies. I work hard for what I want and the way I want something to look. I bite off more than I can chew because I love the feeling of taking on a challenge and knowing that I got myself to my goal because of my determination, that no matter how hard or how impossible something is, and how tired I am and or how much blood, sweat, and tears are shed, the harder I work, the prouder I'll be in the end."

"I was the first in my family to get involved in cosplay when I was twelve. I slowly began to sew and handmade all my costumes, as well as compete. I find it all so exciting. Eventually, I dragged my cousin (Ariel) and sister (Belle), into doing a cosplay with me in 2015."

"I've been looking at cosplay for a long while, and did a very mediocre Misty cosplay back in 2013 as my first one, and since then I've been wanting to do more. I plan to learn a lot more techniques and get better at making cosplay so I can finally fly out of the birds nest and do it on my own."

"I cosplay to show people's interests, fandoms, and choice of expressions aren't weaknesses. it helps me promote positivity on so many levels and push my creativity to the max. cosplaying has brought a higher purpose to my life, and given me a huge opportunity to provide for my city, Frankfort, Kentucky."

"I'm cosplaying Leliana from Dragon Age : Inquisition. The chain mail took almost 5 months to complete, and the whole costume took almost a year to finish. I did win Best Craftsmanship in the Video Game Costume Contest, though, and in the end the struggle was worth it!"

"At the third con I attended a little girl ran up to me so excited and almost in tears. She said "Wonder Woman! Wonder Woman! You're brown like me!" Her parents took a picture of the two of us together and thanked me for showing her daughter that she could be any character that she chose to be. I've never been so humbled and proud at the same time. It was a strange and amazing juxtaposition that I will never forget."

" At the time this was my most expensive costume materials wise as well as time costuming. It took an equal amount of sewing and prop building. The costume itself was formed around Victorian clothing patterns that were reinforced with craft form to give it an armor like shape. Everything was covered in maroon velvet to further give it that Victorian effect."

"Being able to recreate that bit of nostalgia for people was amazing, to be able to bring a movie (that I love dearly) to life and connect with others that also share an emotional impact with the film is simply incredible. "

"Cosplay has taught me a lot about what I am capable of creating as an artist. Being able to bring something fictional to reality gives me a sense of reward and immense satisfaction I don’t think I could get from anything else."
