Cosplay crafting 3 years 5 months ago #951

There are few important questions for every person that is starting to develop in a cosplay hobby scene:
1) Where to find materials for costumes?
2) Where to find good tutorials for crafting items?
3) To who to turn for advice on performance and bon-ton?
4) To who to turn about help with crafting or from whom to order parts of prop or costume if to complicated for a beginner to make?

Senior cosplayers, please share your experience with less experienced hobbyists!

I have a very crafty group of friends on my uni. But costume and fashion design is what we study :)
We make our costumes for cosplay, team parties and Halloween from all kind of junk and leftovers. When in a pinch, we have proven we can make 5 full costumes in 48hrs, but that is 5 of us, working like mad :D
What would you like to do/make/cosplay?

Friends are the essential in costume making. Form a good team and you are half way done :) Also, preparations, hunting down good references, materials and tutorials is of utmost importance. I have watched countless ho to clips for every costume I made with my friends.
I will not be forgotten This is my time to shine I've got the scars to prove it
Only the strong survive
I'm not afraid of dying Everyone has their time Life never favored weakness
Welcome to the pride

How come noone tries to use or bend ABS plastic?! Im allways reading about some Vorblax orsomething .
eeek, yea I wanted to ask one thing regarding this. Is it true that on bigger Con. gatherings they forbid usage of replica weapons.
I cant remember where I saw this but the point is that the weapons doesnt need to be realistic :huh:

SO If cosplay some major Luitenant from Battlefield or Metro 2033 franchise HOW am I supposed to deliver that characters if replicas are not wellcome to cosplay event. Safety reasons perhaps?
