I can do some minimal sewing but I agree, costume creating does feel a bit overwhelming to me. I started a draft spider-Gwen in 2020 and have been really struggling to continue. I still have to sew it then mark it for the color differences then start all over with the real costume. I’m thinking about changing and doing a book reference for my first one instead. All I’ll have to sew is the cloak and the rest is more regular cloths

It's been a while since this thread has seen some activity, but I finally purchased a 3d printer and got it up and running.  I've been resisting 3d printing for the longest time since I got into cosplay about 20 years ago and I was stubbornly sticking to old methods of prop making.  However I've been enjoying the printer and the tinkering that comes with it.  I'll have some new props for SW Celebration.  Nothing new planned for SDCC though.
My husband has been making Star Wars prop guns and is currently working on a Mandalorian helmet. He's really having fun with his printer.

Wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations for cosplay websites or commissioners? I would like to do a Monica Rambeau (WandaVision) cosplay in her Sword Uniform, a Symmetra or Sombra cosplay (Overwatch) and/or a Nessa (Pokemon Sword Gym Leader) cosplay, but these can be pretty niche and not as easy to throw together in a trip to Savers or Goodwill. I'd like to do something higher quality than your typical Rubie's Costume from a halloween store, but unfortunately I don't have the skills to put something together myself.  If anyone has some tips or recommendations for cosplay commissioners or websites to check out, I would love to have them!

BladesUSA is having a sale on a bunch of it's training swords.  As you can tell by looking at the reviews, a lot of people buy them for cosplay.  Once they are painted they look really good.  Being training swords, they also have decent heft to them.
