zack wip post !!
i’d like to remake the buster sword in all honesty since some things didn’t work out or i was just like “fuck it”. namely my sculpting stuff wasn’t sealing right and i didn’t have time to do molds. it was also my first time workin with xps foam. SHE AINT THAT PRETTY, not my best work plus i aint much of a prop person. i need to remake that belt too cause that was an old mock up. hopefully i’ll have the drive to remake the sword after i finish all my commissions ! im still happy with how it turned it, i just know i can do better🤧

"I’ve been fortunate enough not to be the personal recipient of cosbullying (yet??) which is either a testament to the awesomeness of the cosplay scene in Boston or to how green behind the ears I am. 😅 But I see the comments on other people’s cosplays here on Instagram and it’s just not right. -
Since I don’t have a negative experience to share I will share what IS my truth instead: I am floored by you all daily, in the best way. Seriously, I scroll through my Insta feed in AWE of how talented you all are. Not just the people you think I must be talking about when I say “wow, talented,” but even the newest cosplayer with the blurriest photo and the most half-assed selfie shot has created something amazing.
Cosplayers are amazing! Look at us, bringing imaginary things to life in ways big and small, from the 10ft props that light up and shoot actual laser beams to the lowest-key makeup and wig tests that effect very real transformations with even the smallest actions. I really do wish I could like every pic in my feed (I don’t because I’m afraid IG’s algorithms will fuck with my feed forever) because I want you all to know that I see your efforts and you rock and inspire me, regardless of skill level, body type, skin tone, gender, budget and resources, photo quality, or character choice. Keep rocking and most importantly keep doing you. -
Shoutout to @imrielcosplay and @daisy_cosplay for starting this movement!"
