I was looking through costume storage last night in search of something that my model could wear to match my Firebird headdress, and found armor in the same vein as Albireo’s. It was basically a thick tunic with metallic vinyl diamonds cut out and tacked onto the shirt. And honestly, I was kind of jealous because the distance between the stage and the audience allows the costume designer to employ such a simple and time-saving method for theater, and… something like that would never fly on cosplay!

My name is greyrondo. I've been a cosplayer since Fall 2006, and I've noticed that the best conversations I have with cosplayers usually involve the question, 'so how DID you do that?' So after studying costuming and making a closet's worth of costumes, that's what I'd like to help answer. Drop in and stay awhile whether you're a cosplayer or just a curious spectator; one of my musings is bound to be what you're looking for. If you have a question or something to say, leave a comment or contact me! I don't bite, I promise. View all posts by greyrondo
