Cosplay for Beginners!

Cosplay for Beginners is a new video series following my original Cosplay: Getting Started blog post! Whether you’re a newbie, a curious parent or a seasoned cosplayer – this series will cover the basics of cosplay and how to get involved!

My Cosplay 101 talk has always been popular at events so making a video equivalent of that was one of my goals when I started my YouTube channel, Cosplay Chatter. Each subject will have its own video and once each video is released, there will be a megacut version covering it all!

So where do we begin? With The Basics, of course!

Moving on to Part 2 – Buying A Costume! This part covers modifying clothes to make a costume, too!

This post will be updated when new parts are released! Don’t forget to like and subscribe for more! 💛

Building A Garage Kit

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen my adventures with a new hobby: Garage Kit building!

I attempted to paint one once and failed, so it went back in the box and into a cupboard… as most unsuccessful hobby attempts do. When I moved earlier this year, I unpacked the kits and thought I should try it again. This time, I was armed with YouTube guides and tutorials – my first kit turned out pretty nicely and before I knew it, I was in deep!

My latest video on YouTube is a video where I, a total newbie, attempt to paint a GK of Sumomo & Kotoko from Chobits – detailing the full process from start to finish! Check it out here:

I painted two figures at once for my second GK project (I know, I have no chill)! I really enjoyed painting these two and I can’t wait to start my next GK project.

Cosplay Chatter on YouTube!

Ooooof. It’s been.. a while? 2020 has been a wild ride for everyone, and a lot of cosplayers – myself included! – have really struggled to stay motivated!

I managed to sew a few things at the start of lockdown, but it was difficult to keep the motivation going while I was stuck inside and while my weight fluctuated. So why not try something new?

Behold.. Cosplay Chatter on YouTube!

 

I had a bit of a break between January and now for moving, but I’m back at it and I have lots of fresh ideas for videos! Some of them will be informative, some topical and some just for fun! You can check it out with the videos above, or check out my channel Exelia!

Any suggestions for videos you have are welcome too! Don’t forget to like and subscribe for more! 💛

Cosplay Life “Shopping in Tokyo”

Happy new year everyone!

Over the winter holidays, I helped my good friend Lauren with a new video project for her new cosplay-centric YouTube Channel, Cosplay Life!

The first project is an overview of Shopping in Tokyo. During a recent visit to Japan, Lauren captured some footage around different districts in different stores to highlight what is available for cosplayers, whether it’s buying premade costumes, picking up accessories or looking for supplies to make your own costumes – there’s a little bit of everything for cosplay enthusiasts covered!


Shopping in Tokyo is a four part series covering stores found in Akihabara, Nakano Broadway and two parts dedicated to Ikebukuro. Obviously, time will change what is available and which stores are open – but for the time being, hopefully you will find it helpful if you’re planning to take a trip to Tokyo!
