NAJC Cosplay Workshop
March 31, 2017
For fans of anime, Japanese Culture and making … join the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of JAPANESE CANADIANS (NAJC), STEAMLabs and production designer Michiko Yano-Shuttleworth for an introduction to the creative world of Cosplay.
In this workshop, you will receive an overview to materials such as: thermal plastics, foams, woven and knit fabrics, and tools used to build costumes and prop pieces. As a group, we will discuss the potential uses of these materials. Showcase various techniques through the use of live demos.
In addition there will be an opportunity to experiment with these materials and begin designing and prototyping your very own headpiece, arm piece, or cape. We strongly recommend coming to the workshop with an idea in mind, so you can start to experiment and make during the workshop.
The workshop will be of value for everyone from absolute beginners and experienced makers alike!
Participants will receive discounts at choice suppliers!
