feralmango asked: Okay so I'm working on my first cosplay and it's going to require me to actually make an article of clothing from scratch. I was hoping to get a pattern to work off of but it's a weird cloak/jacket combination and I don't... even know where to start looking. I can link to a reference if need be though.

Please do! I can either find you a pattern myself or one that’s similar and show you how to alter it! I’ll gladly help you!

monorish asked: Hey! Well have you got any ideas how I can make my helmet harder? (I made it from paper with pepakura)

Hmm.. I would definitely give it a hard backing on the inside and out.

Head over to your local craft store and purchase cheese cloth and mod podge. Layer by layer, use the mod podge in generous amounts over the cheese cloth on both the inside and outside of your helmet (don’t do both sides at once). Keep on the layers after they’ve dried until your helmet is as hard as you want it.

After that, smooth out the outer part of the helmet by laying down a layer or two of paper mache! You can do the inside as well, if it’s too rough for you to wear.

The helmet should then be ready for a couple base coats and paint!

Anonymous asked: Hello! I was browsing the DW tag and I saw your Bao Sanniang cosplay wip! It's beautiful and would love for a tutorial on how to make her weapon ;w;

Omg totally! I actually JUST started on the weapon yesterday! So I’ll totally post WIPs and make a tutorial when it’s done! It does move and function to a degree, so I’ll make sure to include it all in the description for ya!

Thank you for your compliment! I have less than 25 days to finish it for a convention so it’ll be done soon :D

Open for questions again!

I had to take some time off because I was moving out for the third time in a whole year, so that was a total hassle. Worry not! I’m mostly back to being alive and running this awesome blog!

So send in your questions and maybe even your cosplays so I can share them with the world and help you out!

Started working on my weapon for the cosplay contest next month. The blades and main pieces are bases to stay sturdy and shift between its two positions. On top I’ll be placing pink insulation foam to shape the weapon and carve all the details. Coming sooooon

So I’ll be posting WIPs here in photo sets, so they’ll be posted after some periods of time (after I made some big progress). If you’d like to follow me on Instagram to see the pics as they come, my username is Rynoki. All WIPs we posted on there as I work.

I feel like someday I’ll need to do a makeup tutorial

I have a list of other possible stuff I may or may not make or have commissioned, so I’ll be making updates on the list above if anything does change. The first five are happening for sure, though. WIPs of everything will be posted and some tutorials along the way may be created. Also I started an Instagram *idk why* but it’s there. I’m Rynoki. 

Anonymous asked: Is it okay if you post a lot of progress pics for the whole cosplay of Toon Zelda? I understand that it's really labor intensive and you're very busy completing your costumes to make a full-length tutorial on Zelda, so I was wondering if you can take photos of the whole process...

Definitely! I’m very excited about the whole thing, so I’ll be more than happy to post photos of it!

I’ve already started buying the fabrics and supplies, so I’ll definitely start posting stuff. I do want to be a lot more active as well :)

Thanks for asking! Hopefully I can start posting either tomorrow or on Wednesday.
