Hi there, I'm Samantha. I've been cosplaying for about 8 years, and mainly attend conventions in central Florida.
I work for Action3 Events 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 Action3 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"
OKAY GUYS I’m going shoe shopping with a friend and then down to the comic book shop to play Magic with 3/4 of my DnD guild so I’ve gotta jet. If you send in any further questions today, they will be answered tomorrow for Ask Necro day :) Toodles!
You can cover them in fabric (I did this for my America’s Elite Scarlett), or just paint them with vinyl dye. I’m assuming most of the components of the armor are plastic so you will need paint that sticks to plastic or it will flake and peel. I just linked it in another ask but I’ll link it here as well :)
I WILL CELEBRATE WITH YOU FRIEND
Nope you can use fusible interfacing on pleather, you’ll just want to put the pleather good side down on the ironing board, then your fusible interfacing (one-sided, not double!), and iron on the non-sticky side of the interfacing since some pleathers can melt with too much heat.
