Hi there, I'm Samantha. I've been cosplaying for about 9 years, and mainly attend conventions in central Florida.



I work for Imaginarium, LLC and serve as their cosplay events coordinator for Tampa Bay Comic Con, Orlando Comic Expo, Nashville Comic Expo and possibly more events in the future!

Although I do not purport to be an expert in making things, I am more than happy to answer any cosplay/crafting questions you may have.

I was recently asked by Imaginarium to make a Fanpage, and if you want, you can like it here. However, this Tumblr is the best way to keep up with my antics, unless you want to actually add my personal profile on Facebook. I'm not shy about adding friends there so feel free to send me a request IF we have met or at least have mutual friends: "Samantha Petrone"

PUFF SLEEVE TUTORIAL FOR COSPLAY AND PERIOD DRESS! 
Hey! There’s a lot of disjointed info out there about making puffy sleeves, and I thought it might be helpful to gather (ha) everything I’ve learned/found online in one place. Puff sleeves, more accurately known as “leg o’ mutton sleeves,” were popular between 1890 and 1906, and they’re a pretty common feature in fancy/ball gown costumes. 
Under the readmore: how to draft & sew puff sleeves and tips and tricks for maximum puff! Featuring really shitty pencil-on-Post-It diagrams by me!
Many thanks to all the people whose brains I’ve picked about this, as well as all the Internet resources I’ve trawled to make this possible.

And every one of those comments are my fellow cosplayers going “OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!?!”

Civvies are the worst around Halloween I swear.

If only you could see Hawkeye dancing with me just out of frame…

Star-Lord isn’t the only one who can get down. ;)
