Last year there was a great movement about #CosplayCredit. I think that this is an important thing to talk about since our community has gotten pretty big recently!
BIG GOLDEN RULE:
Credit those involved in your cosplay.
The costuming community is big, yet still very small. People will talk and…
Thank you so much! Thats very sweet of you! <3 <3

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, and armor making. 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.
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!
As always, I don’t hoard any ‘secrets’. I unfortunately don’t usually have the time to make tutorials, but if you ever want to know how I did something, the materials I used, where I purchased goods, feel free to ask! I’m also open to discussing your projects with you - just be sure to point me in the direction of a couple of reference pics and what you’re working on accomplishing in order to get me on-page with you.
