Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. You’re no outlaw – at least not any more – but making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. Your unique brand of daring and ingenuity is needed now more than ever.

That’s how you know you love someone, I guess. When you can’t experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too.

Hello! I'm looking to put together a nice Peter Pan outfit for an event in a couple of months... but I don't know wear to start to make it good (and your's is faaaaaaaab). Could you suggest anything?

Thank you so much. I didn’t make my tunic, though I was present for the duration of the build, and helped where I could, so I can offer some advice.

If you’ve never worked without patterns before, then I would recommend either drafting your own pattern, or finding one and altering it. Patterns help in difficult sections of the costume and make everything much easier than working without one. When J and I can’t find patterns, we make our own. It takes a bit of trial and error, but eventually you’ll find that perfect one. Use butcher paper, or newspaper for drafting your own patterns. And, if you want to sew, but not worry about using up your nice fabric, get an old bed sheet from Goodwill, or cheap fabric from Joann’s (like muslin), so that you can sew without worry! It’s great for learning.

For fabric, I would recommend something heavy, like a linen, so that the leaves drape nicely on your shoulders, hips, and wherever else you decide to add them. Also, depending on the thickness of the fabric, you may want to double up on it.

The last thing I can offer is to not give up. It is frustrating, and you will mess up. Don’t let that stop you from continuing. Take a step back, wait a day or two, play a video game, read a book, or even watch a movie. When you come back, you’ll be even better than before. You’ll find places where you messed up, or see new ways to tackle your sleeve, or collar. It’s all a learning process, and we never stop learning new techniques. C:

I hope this helped in some way. If there is anything else you have questions about, feel free to ask. I’ll do my best to explain.

How to be Thick-Skinned

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. Don’t take criticism personally. Instead, realize that criticism says more about them than it does about you.
2. Distinguish between facts and subjectivity. Most criticisms are just personal opinions. They are not objective and they don’t reflect the truth.
3. Look at the beliefs you hold about yourself. Do you feel defensive and under attacked because you don’t believe in yourself?
4. Learn what you can from any comments that are made – and discard the rest as being useless information.
5. Decide not to ruminate on barbs or criticisms - as that will reinforce the message in your brain.
6. Choose to spend more time with people who’re affirming – and minimise the time you spend with those who put you down.
7. Look for a role model who can handle criticism – and try to copy them, so you become more thick skinned, too.

I get messages on a regular basis from people who are scared of cosplaying, and it makes me so sad that there are people out there who really want to try cosplaying but are too afraid of getting internet hate to participate. That just ain’t cool.

Bullying is never okay, but unfortunately it’s a pretty frequent occurrence in the online world of fandom. And realistically, the bullies probably aren’t going anywhere. The internet makes it really easy for people to spread hate, and I don’t think there will ever be a day when it isn’t an issue in the cosplay community. (Depressing, I know, especially considering we’re all a bunch of weirdos pretending to be magical girls/ninjas/dudes with giant swords/elves/etc. In an ideal world, we’d all stick together, but unfortunately, it’s not an ideal world.)

When you see someone else being bullied, it can be easy to stand up for them - but when you’re the one receiving hate messages on Tumblr or someone is leaving cruel comments on your photos, it can be a lot harder. I’ve found that when it comes to dealing with hate you may get for your costumes, the best thing to do is let it go.

Don’t acknowledge it, don’t give it a second of your time, because it seriously does not matter. Seriously. Doesn’t matter. No, really, it doesn’t. Step back and look at the big picture. Does a message from some jerk on the internet who hates your nose or your weight or your fabric choice really affect your life? No. It doesn’t. There are so many awesome things to enjoy in life, ain’t nobody got time to waste on jerks like that.

Just don’t care what other people think. Someone thinks you make an ugly Sailor Moon? Who cares! You had a great time cosplaying her and you got to spend the whole day with your Sailor Scout group, and you’re really proud of the pictures you guys took together - so share those memories, post them all over your Tumblr and your Facebook, spam them everywhere! If that person doesn’t like your costume, that’s their problem. You keep on doin’ you.

It’s easier said than done; having self-confidence takes practice, but once you get there, it’s an insanely good feeling to know that their words can’t hurt you. Focus on having fun with your hobby, spending time running around as ninjas with your friends, and crying over your sewing machine the night before a con because your SnK jacket isn’t done and you still haven’t started on the straps and oh god how does 3DMG even work.

This got a lot longer than I intended, but tl;dr: Don’t let the haters stop you from sharing your artwork with other cosplayers and bonding with each other over this silly, ridiculous hobby of ours.

From one Piper to another, your cosplay of Peter Pan rocks. It's actually a cosplay I've been wanting to do for years. Yours is so well done, I absolutely love it. <3 Pip

Yay! A fellow Pip. C:

Thank you so much! That means a lot to me. All credit goes to my fiancee. He made most of the costume and I cannot thank him enough for bringing my ideas to life.

I hope you’re able to cosplay Peter Pan soon. He’s such a fun character to portray; I never get tired of that costume. I’m sure you’ll have fun too! Please send a photo of your costume once completed! I’d love to see the finished product.

See, their morals, their code… it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you, when the chips are down, these… these civilized people? They’ll eat each other.
