Jealousy in cosplay. Have you ever met such thing in a cosplay community? I did, and since I started cosplaying as a 14 y.o. teenager, I often felt jealousy when someone cosplayed the same character like me. But being 12 years older now, I think jealousy to a cosplay character is something odd, from a part century. And there are few things I’ve learned about it: 🔴 People who cosplaying same fandom as you and even the same character could become good friends – because you already have something common, right? They are allies. Same interests can start a strong friendship; you can make so many fun and derp photos/videos together (trust me, people adore them). 🔴 Don’t be upset if character you’re going to cosplay is popular and was cosplayed by many. The research becomes easier to you. For example, I always do the research before starting a costume to see how it was made by other cosplayers, how costume look on a real person, and to find helpful tricks and ideas. 🔴 There are endless possibilities to make one costume. Try unusual material with a new technique, add new details, make the costume more unique, or even create your own design. 🔴 You shouldn’t hesitate to make a character which was already made by a famous cosplayer. Do it anyway if it inspires you and makes you happy. Your followers and friends would love to see Your version. 🔴 And finally, try to not pay attention on comments “someone else’s did the same character better”. I know it’s hard but don’t take it personally, people will always have their own favourites. Those who respect you and your efforts would never downplay your work. Don’t let jealousy waste your time and nerves, especially in such positive things as cosplay. It’s never worth it. 🔺️Costume made/modeled by me (@narga_lifestream) 🔺️photo @sei_walking_under_skies #sallywhitemane #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplaycommunity #nargaandaokicosplay #whitemanecosplay #worldofwarcraft #hearthstone #heroesofthestorm #gamecosplay

Progress of Jaina Proudmoore – swipe left 👉 I made this costume back in 2016, I already wore in more than 20 times and I never repair it. The breastplate is made out of 2 layers of meshed thermoplastic (analogue of Meshed Worbla) and it turned out very sturdy. My pauldrons were made out of 5mm foam covered with Bubblestar (Russian Worbla) and they are sturdy as well. I’ve been using foam+worbla combo pretty often and I can confirm it works. My Jaina costume survived after many travels in the suitcase. The most annoying part in this cosplay is to wash and steam the white skirt every time. 😅 Save this post for later if it was helpful ❤ Lastest photo by @kmitenkova _____ #jainaproudmoore #Jaina #worldofwarcraftcosplay #worldofwarcraftclassic #cosplayprop #cosplayarmor #cosplayprogress #worbla #foamsmith #propmaking #costumemaking #cosplaywip
