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

Fantasy Festival 2023
September 16th-17th, Esbjerg, Denmark
A Danish convention focused on fantasy, books, magic, witches and roleplay, featuring lots of books, art, medieval market, events and author talks. An absolutely magic event hosted by Esbjerg Library. I will be there as part of Warcrafter’s booth.
October 27-29th, Aarhus, Denmark
A cozy convention in mainland Denmark with focus on cosplay, Japanese culture and any other nerd culture.
This year I’ll be judging the cosplay competition and hosting a panel.

I post about conventions, cosplay progress, review cosplay shops/products and whatever else comes to mind on my blog.
So last year, I replaced my beloved Husqvarna Viking Huskylock 910 with a brand new serger, because my Huskylock just wasn't running well. The dealer I bought the new machine from offered to take my old as a trade-in, but I wasn't ready to say goodbye to it. I bought...
Gamebox 2023 happened a little over a week ago, and it was really great! This year, the event was more focused on the LAN-part, which meant there were fewer booths and fewer cosplayers, but more people overall. None the less, we had a really great time, and our booth...
I finally finished my Astral Warden cosplay! And this time, I didn't take a year to make a write-up about it - it's on my page already. You can find it here or under write-ups in the topmenu. I also added photos of it to the gallery. This was a cosplay I started last...
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.
