SkymoneCosplay crafting & modeling
Designer by day, Elf by night
Hi, I’m Simone aka Skymone Cosplay.
Since I was a little girl, I loved dressing up and my parents would make me the most epic Halloween costumes. When I grew up and moved away from home, I needed a hobby and an excuse to wear costumes, and so in 2013, I discovered cosplay.
I work as a multimedia designer, so cosplay is a spare time hobby. I mostly cosplay elves from World of Warcraft.
I’ve been attending conventions since 2007 and making my own cosplays since 2013. It all ads up. Here’s some stats, although I may have forgotten some

I just got back yesterday from London Comic Con Winter and this time, I'm doing my post con post immediately! In the week leading up to the event, I was nervous I wouldn't be able to go. I've been coughing and snuffy nosed since Yunicon last month, and although I...

I try to make long, step-by-step descriptions of my larger cosplay projects so that other people might get some ideas how various things could be made. They’re not meant as a guide to copy, just as a way to maybe see someone else’s work process and see how others solve challenges.
They may not be the latest cosplays I made, but here are the latest write-ups of cosplays
My eBook is a few years old by now, but it still contains a lot of information that might be relevant if you’re just starting out as a cosplayer.
The book describes different types of foams, thermoplastics, LEDs and much more. It is far from a full list of the materials cosplayers use, but it’s a good starting point to get an understanding of materials and their uses.
Here’s some of my favourite cosplays and photos.
