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:

Name:
Gender:
Nationality:
Personal Blogs & Social Networks:
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.

How to Make Vocaloid Magnet’s Dress by Transforming a Cheap Wedding Gown?

It’s an interesting matter to make cosplay props by ourselves. And most costumes or weapons don’t cost us a lot. Below, tips on making Vocaloid Magnet Costume by transforming an amazingly cheap wedding gown are shared with you.

Required items: a cheap wedding dress purchased online, 1 meter of striped cloth, 1 meter of hard lining, 4 meters of organdy or yarn, 1 meter of organza, a roll of white line and a packet of needles. Actually, there will be redundant fabric that can be used to make other things.

1. Neckline. This photo shows you the wedding dress I bought online. (About cheap wedding dresses, you can check here!) The neckline can be altered. Just cut out the desirable shape and sew it up.

2. Bowknot. Below, you see materials we will use later (the sash has been made in advance. I’ll show you how to make it later).

Cut a piece of hard lining that is 1 meter long and 35 CM wide. Then, cut a piece of organdy or yarn that has the same length but double width than the hard lining. Encase the hard lining by organdy and fold it for three times like below picture shows to you.

Pinch at the middle of this semi-finished item and sew it by needles. Then, the bowknot is completed. To help it seem more gorgeous, diamond-like sequins are used, which is sold under $2 per meter.

3. Train. It’s very simple. Just find a piece of organza that’s 3 meters long and fold it in the middle. Sew the train together with the bowknot. To enhance the beautiful sense, you can add some lacework on the edge, which only costs you about $2.

Attach the train, bowknot to the sash by a pin.

The train has been finished.

4. Sash. Method to make the bowknot can be used to make the sash again. First, find a piece of hard lining that is 10 CM wide. The length should be 5 CM larger than your waistline. Striped cloth should be doubly wide and 5 CM longer than the hard lining. In this case, it can be folded inwards. Then, cover the hard lining by striped cloth (if possible, iron it please). Sew them up on all sides and sew the adhesive buttons onto it.

After wearing a sash, the waist seems rather slim \(^o^)/.

The original wedding dress has bra-like undergarment. So don’t worry the dress will not look great because of your small chest. More tutorials can be found on Miccostumes.com.
