The Costume Making Guide my first book with an official publisher. Our goal was to create a beginner’s guide to armor and prop making so that everybody – no matter their background knowledge – can get started with this amazing hobby. This is the longest book I ever wrote (128 pages) and in it you’ll find everything from pattern making, to shaping and attaching armor pieces, painting to creating bad-ass props with foam or Worbla.

  • Expert instruction for crafting shiny armor and realistic-looking props
  • How to choose a costume and find good reference art
  • A short shopping list of necessary materials and tools for beginning cosplayers
  • How to create realistic paint jobs using simple acrylics
  • A beautiful photo gallery featuring inspiring images from other cosplayers
  • How to grow your workshop, take professional photos, participate in contests and join the cosplay community

Print edition. Paperback, 128 pages high quality full color print. Perfect as a gift or for browsing while you create a costume!

Every Book comes signed! If you want it signed for a special name, please write it in the purchase note.

    I picked this book up at a local craft store, I craft costume accessories. Now ai am becoming more familiar with various techniques thanks to @kamuicosplay, I recommend this book to anyone interested in making their own costumes. Also follow her on Insta! Her work is amazing and she strives to help you learn. I will be buying all her ebooks next.

    I’ve watched the KamuiCosplay YouTube videos several times, but having a physical book in hand as reference is super-helpful! I like that it describes all the materials used, as well as where to purchase them. The creation of each item includes step-by-step detailed descriptions accompanied by pictures. Thanks!
