Starting My First Cosplay – Maginos! Day 1

Hey everyone, I’m finally going to do a cosplay!

For my first cosplay, I’m going to be dressing as Maginos!  I’m not going to do a full helmet type cosplay, just a prosthetic, clothing, staff, and meeps.  It should be pretty awesome (I hope) while still looking like me.


I decided to make the staff out of spray foam, and I’m really trying to emphasize the big funky top of the staff.  I figure I have to start somewhere, and a staff with little decorations is as good a place as any to start with.

I’m recording all of it, so unlike a lot of videos that are just showing a particular technique, I don’t have any! 😉  Seriously though, if I like out the final product, I’ll probably cut up a speed video of just me making it, but this is more of my vlog hoping some of you will join me in my first tentative steps into cosplaydom.

So I did a couple hours of research, and I wanted to put some links to them if you want to see where I’m getting most of my techniques. First, my friend Ramsey said to check out Kamui, her site is amazing, check her out!

I also found Commishenanigans to be really helpful, you can check out her channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgPl89ZHb6LbNZsxjmLpSKw

Finally, Morrigan had a great staff tutorial that I thought was really good, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yudd8aiOarg
