New tutorials and an addition to the staff list
Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Thursday 12th June 2008
I realise we may have been a little quiet on the news front recently, somehow also forgetting to put anything up about Expo! We'll have our coverage of the Expo weekend up soon, but before that we have some new content and and introduction to make.
We have two new great tutorials from our members which I hope you guys will find useful - a guide to female to male crossplay and prop creating on a budget. In addition to this we'd like to announce our newest staff member, Amy-Lou who will be helping us to keep this site up and running smoothly for everyone.
New Staff member
Firstly I'd like to welcome on board Amy-Lou as a new member of staff on the site, she's taken the role of editing online content and helping with the day-to-day running of the site as we are getting a little overrun here with all you new guys signing up! Her first task has been to save me from being beaten to death by two of our members by taking on tutorial submissions. I will make a huge apology for taking so long to get these up to Odd-One-Out and Odangochan, we even had to hire a trained monkey....I mean our precious new staff member, to get these done. So without further ado, please see below for our newly added tutorials.
Technique - Female to Male Crossplay
First up is Odangochan's tutorial on female to male crossplay, a very thorough look at the various ways of chest binding and generally making yourself appear more manly! She also provides a very handy list of suppliers to aid your gender-bending quest.
Walkthrough - Budget Prop Making - Zabimaru
Not all of us have access to heavy power tools, large workshops and expensive gear - but that doesn't stop you from being able to create huge props for your cosplay. Odd-One-Out shows us a way to make con-safe, oversized props that can be made mostly within the confines of your home.
All credit goes to the authors, if you find their tutorials helpful leave a comment for them on the article and let them know their hard work is appreciated!
