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!

Finally got around to adding this on my blog! I’m certainly not the best cosplayer out there but I love to share everything I know. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!

I’ve blogged about this before but I forgot to add the pic to my blog whoops. It’s on there now. I will try to help with ALL THE THINGS!

My fingers and wrist hurt but I finally finished coloring this.
I certainly had fun and horrible times with this, but I’m happy how it turned out to be.

Third in the Kinstuck series. The Makaras!
Human!Goatdad is a Turkish diplomat and, as he is almost always away on business, his eldest son GHB has had to act as de facto guardian and caretaker for his two kid brothers, Kurloz and Gamzee, for most of their lives. It’s no easy task balancing his duties as Mayor with his duties as an older brother, especially considering the fact that his younger brothers are just about the worst family a highly visible, highly scrutinized, highly conservative politician could hope for.
