• Effective October 15th, all Youtube content threads that are posted within the creative media section will be subjected to being moderated before being displayed. Over the past year we've noticed lots of new members and a few old members that come here to advertise (obviously here since we're the largest Kingdom Hearts fan base community why wouldn't you) their Channel to promote new subscribers, likes, and displaying their media. However there is a huge difference between creative constructive media criticism, and borderline advertisement. So please, before you post here, understand how the creative media section works, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please reach out, we always like to hear ideas. Few might not like this idea, but it does help keep my section stay organized and not crazy looking, I would like to keep the traditional platform of what the section main purpose is for. It's to help build new and old artistry to an entire whole level.



    Here's how it will work :

    • If you post a thread within the creative media section that is youtube content related to your channel, it will be moved to the "Creative Media Youtube Showing Content thread", a sticky'd thread where members can all over discuss and see everyones content all at once rather than making it self promoting, by making your own thread, if you get my drift. The whole idea behind this is to get members involved in everyones media, and the purpose is to showcase your works, but not self advertisement right? Its all about the constructive criticism and giving everyone the same feedback and layout of how display and showcasing video media should look like.

    • If you have already posted a thread regarding your youtube content, you will not be affected by this change and your thread will be untouched and you can continue to post and discuss accordingly with your peers.


    Social Media Advertisement Content :​

    Now I know lots of new members (out of the blue suddenly became youtube friendly, you're not slick) be-aware that you cannot use the Creative Media section as a gateway to advertise your media without wanting, giving and receiving criticism from your forum family. The idea behind the Creative Media is to help showcase and help improve everyones work or arts, whether it's digital, traditional, etc. Not to promote then leave, it's not fair to the community.

  • As we all know, this is a forum for Kingdom Hearts. Even so, if anybody posts spoilers for Endgame anywhere on this site without spoiler tags, you will be banned. If you change your avatar to something related to Endgame, you will be banned. If you put something in your signature, send a message to somebody that is visibly seen, or share spoilers with somebody who does not wish to see them, you will be banned.

How do you make your cosplay costumes?

To be honest,I can not make them even after reading videos for many times.I admire those who make their costumes by themselves,size and quality could be guaranteed.However,I can not stop loving cosplay,and it always costs me plenty of money.

If you're looking into getting into making cosplay costumes, start simple, then build up your skill. Many cosplayers that make good costumes had to start somewhere. What you see doesn't show the numerous failures they had. So work hard and you'll eventually be able to make your own god-tier costumes.

As for making costumes themselves, I'm not nessarally old enough to go to any Con but I like to make my own costumes for Halloween. One of them was a Shadow, to pull that off I bought a hat from Amazan for like $20(they put that same exact hat in Halloween stores the next year), then just decked out in black.

You don't need expensive costumes or clothing articles to cosplay, you can make a costume with pieces from your closet or even a Halloween costume. As long as you're having fun it really doesn't matter.
boy I rambled a bit there. Hope this helped at least

I started cosplaying by ordering my costume (Itachi Uchiha Akatsuki outfit) online. After I got to college, two years later, my wife wanted to start making my costumes and that's how we do it now. She makes her own patterns when she makes the outfits and usually if there's a prop to be made I'm the one who does it.

Thank you for encouraging me.Buy a hat from an online store seems not so difficult,as there are always delicate difference between adults' head circumferences.However.purchasing costumes is more complex,size and quality ,sometimes even the color.
Now I also wonder about you age,I never heard that some one could be refuse by this kind of activities.

That's fantastic to have a person help you with it.Definitely,we could put something we want into it,if we make them by ourselves.It would be unique.But for me,it is hard and impossible,saving a lot of money for one is what I always do.

There's definitely nothing wrong with that either! There are some fantastic cosplay creators out there that do commissions and their trade is definitely worth your time and money if they can make what you require! If not, there are a few good websites that exist that will have what you need and help you get your cosplay for con time. :D I misread your original post and thought you were asking how we get/got into cosplay though, didn't realize that you were wanting to get tips on cosplay.

The hat I got is this one

It fits loose yet snug due to its knit design, and I've had it for around two years. The only issue I had were the antennas coming loose but that's just because of how recklessly I handle it.
Overall it's a good buy, cosplay or not. Although I will say, the picture does not do the hat justice, it's a little lighter in color irl.

Now I also wonder about you age,I never heard that some one could be refuse by this kind of activities.
It's less of actual age and more of the fact that I don't have a job yet. Therefore no car to go places and no money to support a hobby such as this.

It doesn't matter.Well,to ask for a costume from cosplay creator also cost a lot.I cannot afford that.This week, I found one from the internet ,the store sells many things ,but I couldn't judge the quality. I wonder if you could help me to have a look of it.The link is https://www.cosmanles.com/ Thank you so much for that.I hope it would be a good one for my next month party.

Your hat looks really nice and it is true that cosplay always cost a lot of money.It is also hard to find stores sell costumes with reasonable price while the quality is also good.
