Creating costumes and bringing characters to life requires a lot of work and a healthy dose of motivation! I often struggle with this as well! So with this book I want to share my secrets on how to finish huge projects, how to deal with tight schedules and how to turn stress and insecurities into self-confidence and joy. Cosplay, like any other art, is about having fun and expressing yourself. You just have to stay on track to get things done! I hope this guide will help you to find motivation for all your projects and achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself!
For now, this is going to be my last but probably most important book! With all the crap going on in the world I’m sure everyone can use some motivation and a helping hand! I had my struggles as well and it took me several tries and almost a year to write this book, but I put all my heart and soul into it and I hope you’ll like it!

I already created a ton of costumes from Blizzard franchises and was super hyped for the release of Diablo IV! And as you can imagine I was incredibly excited when they reached out and asked me to bring the Necromancer to life! Check out the full crafting video!
What's better than a Katana? A light up LED Karakuri Katana that also plays sounds! Electronic Arts asked us to bring our favorite weapon from their new game Wild Hearts to life and I'm so excited to finally build the sword of my dreams! Hope you enjoy this little...
I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow!
