In honor of ACen this weekend and all the Cosplays we are excited to see, here is a list of sites to get a variety of materials. This is a list that I wish I had when I got started making Cosplays. The list may not cover everything that you would need, but it may hit some of those harder more common materials that you will need. A MUST if you like going ALL OUT when you make your cosplays and perfection is the only thing acceptable. I must say molding out parts rather than carving out parts of foam or plastics is much easier, especially if you have to make more then one of the same part. I could see the most use for Smooth-on and SparkFun. I wouldn’t have much use for Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds but then again this list wasn’t created JUST for Cosplayers.
Check out the Wired article with links to the sites.

So you wanna be Neku from “The World Ends With You” and you need those sweet headphones…well I will show you how to make em for Under $5 dollars…yeah its tat cheap and that easy. Welcome to Paul’s first Prop making tutorial^_^, I’ve been making props for my cosplays and friend’s cosplays since 2008, so yes I’m still relatively new to it, But I have a passion for it and I think I’m pretty damn good (arrogant 0_0). I never thought about making props it was just kinda forced upon me when me and my ex-girlfriend decided to cosplay Sakura-kun and Dokuro-chan from Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro Chan. Dokuro has a big ass spiked club that I had to make, because its important to have if your cosplaying the character, people know who it is just by the club. I can’t stress enough how important props are to make your character not only stick out, but also complete the costume. Imagine a Cloud without his sword or in this instance a Neku without his Headphones.
