Make sure to follow me on Instagram! I am constantly posting updates and how-tos on all the costumes I make. 

2014 has not been a big year for movie designs, but in my free time, I like to create cosplay costumes. Here are a few status photos of my Ryuko Matoi costume from Otakon 2014. Uniform is a bottomweight cotton with satin ribbon, leather, satin and broadcloth details. Glove is made from vinyl, foam, and Sculpey lightweight clay. Scissor blade is pink insulation foam that I carved, sanded, gessoed, then painted. Wig by Arda Wigs, styled by me.

No Cost Cosplay props: In an effort to constantly update my old costumes, I made a proper chainsaw prop for my Ash costume. Made from an existing toy, laundry detergent container, worbla scraps, and paint. Here’s a few shots of it in action at Monster Mania horror convention last month. :)

Mold-making example for a cosplay commission. I use all Smooth-on plastic products for my molds. Ms. Fortune accessory commission for Elisha.


I spend my time off from making other people’s cosplay costumes by making my own! 🙊 Ryuko Matoi from Kill La Kill, WIP.
