Anonymous asked: Would you happen to know some simple boot cover tutorials? Particularly for a character like Sailor Moon? I've searched, but I can't find one that'll work for me. Thanks! Have a good day!

The ‘Open Book Cosplayer’ Project

There is a stigma in the cosplay community that most cosplayers would prefer to hide the tactics used in order to make a particular cosplay. This project is dedicated to raising awareness for those cosplayers who are open to being asked questions and more than willing to help those in need. In short, you are an ‘Open Book’ full of information for all who seek it. 

The badges above represent some of the most general topics of cosplay craftsmanship, including wig work, tailoring or sewing, prop making, armor making, makeup, electrical work or mascot costumes. This does not mean that you claim to be a master of this or that type. It is simply to say you feel confident enough to answer questions on these subjects and in the event you don’t know, you’re good at re-directing them to someone who might know better.

Other badges that represent non-specific craftsmanship items have also been included. ‘All Things’ - representing ability to tackle any question; ‘Awareness’ - representing knowledge or advice about social issues in cosplay, such as CONsent; and ‘Morale’ - willingness and advice to boost morale for other cosplayers.

By posting one of these badges, you are openly saying that you are more than welcome to take questions from cosplayers on your craftsmanship tactics and workings. Of course this in turn means that asking cosplayers should also know to credit and thank those that helped them out. 

Click here if you’d like to download these badges for your own use.  Feel free to put them on your page, resize them, put them on backgrounds, ect. Post them however you please.

If you do use these badges, please link back to this post so people can learn more about what an ‘Open Book Cosplayer’ is. 

Also utilize the tag Open Book Cosplayer so people can find cosplayers to ask!


**I am an Open Book Cosplayer!**

Lately I have been getting questions from inspiring cosplayers looking for help, and nervous to ask questions. I want to assure you that no matter the topic, you can ask me! For I am an open book ready to help.

My specialties are in sewing, wig making, and props. I also like to talk at length about social issues in cosplay, as well as be a general morale booster for cosplayers! Learn what I provide as an Open Book Cosplayer on my website at
