BYOC (Build Your Own Cosplay) Part 3: Fantastic Finishes

Sometimes it is the smaller details that really make the difference to your costume and those details are often the focus towards the end of construction.

In this class, the focus is to level up your character by making your costume more realistic and authentic. We will cover how to work with alternate materials that are constructed without a sewing machine such as EVA foam, thermoplastics, air brushing, makeup, body painting, and other techniques that will complete everything.

You will also learn how stage presence can further complement your piece. We will also discuss how to wear your costume to the next cosplay event and discuss "Cosplay is Not Consent". In addition, we will help you learn how to highlight your work to judges if you plan on competing in a Cosplay contest.
