My Cosplay DIY Workbook has now been published online as a PDF E-Book, and I'm over the moon excited!

It's been a year and a half in the making, and because of the pandemic, it has postponed publication since there are no Cosplay Conventions happening.  Talk about a let-down!  But seeing it online now, is absolutely astounding!  Working with all the models/friends while making their costumes, was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and Scott.  It was so much fun, getting to be creative and bring their fantasy characters to life.  There were hours of sketching, planning, daydreaming, and brainstorming for this book.  It was a blast to work with the different materials.  Foam, faux fur, netting, furniture pads, mylar, thrift store finds, and all kinds of fabric, made the adventure very exciting for me!

I want to thank my fantastic models who just happen to be friends!  For their patience during fittings, and their enthusiasm during our photography shoots. You guys rocked it.

And now I get to share the Cosplay DIY Workbook with all of you!

Learn how to create a magnificent costume befitting a sea king (or superhero or ninja or whatever you're into!) with this Cosplay DIY Workbook! Inside you'll uncover easy-to-follow instructions and simple patterns for low-sew and no-sew cosplay pieces. Mix and match for added fun and flexibility.  Learn how to sketch your designs on the Croquis Sketch Pages and make your own custom patterns, as well as downloading over 20 patterns for these 8 Characters:
