I stumbled across this link while looking up who my mom could cosplay as (she’s actually interested in it!). It made me think of those who are unsure who they match up with to cosplay as. Or, say you accidentally ordered a wig/contact lenses and you don’t know what character you could use them…
This is on of my absolute favorite tutorials, and I can’t believe I haven’t posted this yet… I’ve used this method hundreds of times (okay, maybe 3-4), but it works flawlessly every time.
This method creates beautiful armor pieces on the cheap, but they still look amazing. This is one of those cosplay-life-changers!

The first image listed here is the absolutely stunning (and extremely talented) owner of God Save the Queen Fashions. In this Deviantart submission, she breaks down all of the fabric basics, including the type of leather she used to make the neck guard. Her eye for detail has never ceased to impress me, and I hope to one day be a fraction as skilled as her.
The second and third images are an overview of MarikaSan’s Claymore progress (check out the original here). This process was created by Volpin, who covers his methods in details throughout two blog posts (1, 2).
I gush over Volpin’s work quite often, not only because he is extremely talented but because he shares every single step of his method, and he is always willing to answer questions. He’s amazingly talented and takes pride in his work
