Cosplay 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 post about conventions, cosplay progress, review cosplay shops/products and whatever else comes to mind on my blog.

Danish Fabric shops

Danish Fabric shops

In Danish, the word for fabric is the same as the word for drugs. So I often make a joke about that, seeing as I have a probably unhealthy amount of fabrics that I’m not sure I’ll be able to use in my lifetime. In my defence, some of it was inherited from my mom. But a lot of it, I’ll admit, I bought myself…

Mag-C 2024

Mag-C 2024

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Mag-C in Germany. The week leading up to the event was very intense, because Zibartas and I decided on last-minute con-crunch costumes. He already had his Mantis Blades done, but he wanted to make the rest of Sandayu Oda's outfit to...

Cosplay Write-ups

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.

Latest write-ups

They may not be the latest cosplays I made, but here are the latest write-ups of cosplays

World of Warcraft
Astral Warden

Sprite Darter

Free eBook

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.
