Armor making seminars @AX2015
My name is Lilia, known (perhaps) by you as Lady Lemon. I am a cosplayer, I make my own costumes. I left my office job to work full time with cosplay because I LOVE IT! I am struggling a little to upkeep my school; I've opened a club-like school where I teach how to make armors to other cosplayers using cheap materials such as eva foam, and I also give other cosmakers space to teach sewing, prop making and wig stylism and more. I've made over 80 costumes in the last 3 years and a half :)
Last year Anime Expo gave me the chance to host a seminar on the first day of the event to teach openly what I know to others. The room was full and we had a great time! (check the pictures) This year they are offering me the chance to be there not just once, but TWICE! and in a huge time frame of 2 hours each.
I need help with my traveling fees, because the organisation gives me the space, but since this is something free to all atendance, I don't get any money and... I'll admit it, until my business is a success, I am really short of money!
I am asking you to support my trip, most of all if you plan to go to Anime Expo this year and you'd like to learn how I do stuff in person! I plan to take materials and work live for you. You'll be able to participate, ask questions and if you want, make some test with the materials that I will take with me :)
Thank you for helping me, taking the time to read this and sharing it ;)
Cosplay is not only my favourite hobby, it's also my way to interact with other people. I've found my place here, with you, in the Cosplay community, and I've never felt so happy in my life! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
