Simple elements of cosplay video tutorials

For years i have made walkthroughs for the cosplay i make but they can be a bit complex. It is common for someone to ask for details on a small simple part of the cosplay that i have to gloss over to make a tutorial a responsible length to watch. To maybe solve this i started a set of short basic videos on one topic at a time. If you are starting out this will cover materials, tools, and techniques for use is cosplay. Ill update the listing here maybe once or twice a month as not to clog the forum but keep up with youtube.
The most up to date place to find them is my website under the "elements of cosplay" section.

bookmarked and subd

this new series, is a nice quick overview of individual product types
it tells you what the product is, and general use
making a good quick referance for cosplay starters

it dosent go into great detail, provide tips, or get into specifics or comparisons
its basic and simple

ya Youtube bs made me move the main bulk of videos to my website like a year ago.
guess i need to be more aggressive with the links, annotations, saying i have a site over and over.
The site has idk 4-5 times as many tutorials, pictures, patterns, voting for content, and lotteries for some of the stuff we make, commissioning info, and we are working on a referencing library like cosplaytutorial.com so theres a bit ya may have missed lol

T.T
yep definitely need to work on that PR a bit more

I added the published videos on youtube but i have several scheduled to come out 2 a week.
There are over 100 up on http://www.finalcosplaycorps.com/ under Elements of Cosplay
and 100s video tutorials, progress pictures, and so on there as well.

Im trying to get a good word press drop down menu plugin so ppl can easily pull up a category of posts to find tutorials easier.
if you are knowledgeable about such thing let me know.

Been working on these and have a few 100 more ready for you.
So far youtube is still in the basics but if you want to see more on any topic like EVA foam or coatings we have organized listings that make research so much easier.
GL good times to all
