Cosplay Tutorial Contest – CardCaptor Sakura “Star Wand Tutorial” by Anna

CardCaptor Sakura
“Star Wand Tutorial”

You will need

  1. Pink Paint
  2. Gold Paint
  3. Foam circle – kinda varies – (I chose I thick one for mine but you can choose a thinner one)
  4. Foam Star
  5. Tiny feather wings
  6. Air-dry Clay
  7. (optional, Red circle gemstone- if you want to be accurate)
  8. Balsa wood stick (1m)
  9. Glue Gun

All these can be purchased from your local arts and crafts store all you need to is ask for them.

Once you have gathered all your required items

Then follow the steps below:

  1. you just simply just pierce a tiny hole into your foam circle
  2. take the wood stick and slide it into the hole
  3. wrap the clay around the stick and cover any gaps made from when you pierced the foam circle
  4. Also you may not see it in the final product picture, but you also need to wrap a thin layer of clay on the bottom of the stick.

  5. To give the star a 3D effect like mine I used the foam star, to choose your star it has to depend on the size of your foam star.
  6. Once you have chosen your foam star simply use your hot glue gun and glue and each of the individual points of the star and place them onto your foam circle

After the glue & clay has dried paint your wand as follows:
The star: needs to be painted gold
The circle/stick: pink of course 😉

After everything is all dry, take the feather wing and chop them in half

4

And glue them at either sides of the circle

6

Optional (if you want to be accurate like the reference picture ;))
Take the red gemstone and glue it where I marked

7

Tada and you’re done 😉
Follow these easy steps and you’ll have your own star staff of your own

Comments about the tutorial: I was looking around for a tutorial for this and the ones i found really annoyed me because of the the cost going into it so i decided to find a affordable alternative to making this star staff since i mostly had the stuff at home like the paints i just had to run up to my local craft shop and gather the supplies that were missing and the process was really fast while i was making this so i decided that i would be able to commission this as well as many of the other props/accessories that i have made in the past

Vocaloid the Sandplay Singing of the Dragon Miku Cosplay Costume_1

Whether the product looks the same with what the original game shows to us is the most crucial aspect cared by each customer. Of course, this is also considered by staffs at Miccostumes.com. Here, the Sandplay Singing of the Dragon Miku costume includes a dress and hat. As you know, the dress features a rather complicated look. To make it faithful to the imaginary style, well experienced designers and tailors in our own clothing factory did an elaborate analysis on it before doing any cutwork. Pictures displayed here show you details.

Contests at Miccostumes.com proceed orderly. Theme for March is to gather some tutorials about cosplay. Once you are gifted in making a cosplay costume, prop, accessory, makeup etc, write down steps and share them with us. Your tutorial can be a Word document, picture, video and so on. Like before, there will be one contributor winning out finally, who will be sponsored with a costume in our store. Cosplay devotees, lift the spirit and strive for a gift for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day!

—————————————————————————————————-

Yes, we accept tutorials in any form. Once you have an original tutorial about anything on cosplay, send it to miccostume@gmail.com with the title of “Cosplay Tutorial Contributing”. Aside from this, send us below information of yours:

A Short Description about Your Tutorial:

If your tutorial refers to a Word document, just make sure the text has and will never be published anywhere else!

As some participants tended to contact us on Facebook before, we will gladly hear from you there. But just remember to tell us your email address too. In this case, we will more conveniently inform you about the latest situation of the contest anytime.

The contest will be launched at March 6, 2012 and end at March 26, 2012. We will announce the winner on April 10, 2012.

Any costume in our store can be picked out as a gift for you – the winner! We offer regular size and also custom-made service, making a costume that ideally fits your figure.

First, polls from Facebook and Google will be counted. Once receiving your contribution, we will publish it on our blog and send you the link to see it. There are two buttons above article for each participant, including one from Facebook and the other from Google Plus. People, who have a Facebook or Google account will be able to vote for you there, by liking the article on Facebook or sharing it on Google +. So, all audience will be the judge.

Second, the audience can also vote for you via commenting. Just remember, only the audience, rather than the author and any staff at Miccostumes.com, is allowed to make a comment. There will be 1 extra vote for each comment. For sure, nobody like to see something spammy. So, comments like “this is great”, “thanks”, “awesome” etc won’t be counted :(.

Last but not the least, the contest organizer acts as another judge. We will govern 100 votes and vote for each participant. Your work will be impartially estimated on five aspects: originality, creativity, feasibility, difficulty and writing style. Every 20 polls will be given to each aspect.

We will publish the work contributed by you within 1 working day. Once it’s posted, people can vote for you. However, to make the contest absolutely fair for each contestant, votes gotten within 2 weeks after the article is published will be only counted! As you know, not all participants join in the contest on the same day. Contestant taking part on the last minute won’t have sufficient time to be voted. To avoid this, we have set the deadline for the contest to be Mar. 26. But there will be still 2 weeks for you to ask votes for support even though you are informed of the contest on the ending date, since the winner will be announced on April 10. Good luck, everybody ;)!

  • Is There Any Way for Me to Get Extra Polls?

Rules have been renovated this time. But you are still suggested to post an article about the contest or directly the link for the article related to your tutorial work on any site you or your friends have, in order to let more people know this. Once they are attracted and click the Facebook or Google button on our blog to share your work, you are more likely to win out!

We gladly accept any advice from you. Also, contact us if any problem, via miccostume[@]gmail.com :D.
