The Empire State Air Museum was kind enough to allow us to shoot inside of a retired Bell UH-1 Huey. A big thanks to them!

A page to dump all of my costume/craft projects and connect with other costumers around the world….
I had a moment of weakness and started a Facebook page for cosplay. I am hoping it will allow me to connect with fellow cosplayers and people I meet at conventions, all while being able to share tutorials, progress pics and finished costumes. Thanks!
We are excited to present Steggum’s new friend Bronty!
Bronty will debut at Genericon 2014 and will be available on the Etsy shop after the convention. We hope you love him as much as we do!
A stripped-down cover of “Tell Your World” by KAITO V3, featuring his “soft” voice bank. One of my favorite Vocaloid songs, I wanted to give KAITO a try at it without all of the vocal processing on most covers. He sounds quite sincere. :)

A cover of the popular song “Black Rock Shooter” by the newly released MEIKO V3! Featuring her “power” voice bank, she is a big change from my usual work with KAITO V3, who tends to have a much softer presentation in his voice.

Sometimes I wonder if I had the “body” for sexy cosplay, if I’d be strong enough to resist self objectifying for popularity.
I try to put craftsmanship and presentation first, so it’s frustrating to see “sexy/hot cosplay girls” get thousands of likes and articles about them.
I respect the models who can do that work, they are fabulous, but there is far more to cosplay than that.
I’ve been making costumes for 12 years and I find that I don’t like the type of coverage cosplay gets online in general.
It’s so easy to find negativity and nasty comments about cosplayers; have we been conditioned to think we should all look like models?
For me, cosplay will always be about the costume and the character. When it becomes about me or my body, I’m doing something wrong.
