TurquoiseKanyl's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
Im a finished educated dressmaker now and was an apprentice in Dressmaking at VATLE (an norwegian clothingbrand). Where I did sewing, patternmaking and I did some other things.
On my freetime I read manga and watch anime, design and sew my own stuff, draw, take photos, play roleplaying games (D&D like games), do some LARP and cosplaying.

For some weeks ago I started with League of Legends, I love the game. Its so awesome, and I feel I have been missing out on something cool. Have had some friends who have been asking me of trying it a long time and I said no, I regret that now after finally playing the game. 
I love the game and the champions designs, it has very cool designs and they have inspired me. I want to make cosplays from the game and have started on the planning and sketching. The only thing is that I like the female champions better then the male champions, but it can be done trough genderbending. For people who dont understand what that is: its bending the gender/sex of an character, to the opposite sex of the character. 
I want to make "Arcade Sona", Ashe and Vi in male version, have done the sketching for Ashe and Sona. Because of my education I know a lot about clothing, silhouettes, design etc. So I feel I can get the female clothing switch and appropriate for male clothing, so the silhouettes will be the same and the essence of the character will be right. I take the prominent factors about the character over to the masculine side of cosplay.

WHat I do and think about when Im bending a character (Tips):
ITs hard to do a right way of bending a character, so you have to draw/design alot and ask about peoples opinions if they can see that its the character in the other sex/gender.
Its very useful to find the inspiration of the character design the artist had when he/she designed it. If the character is oriental, western, european etc. nationality, which time period the clothing on the character is inspired by and taken from, and so on and so on. 
I ask often other cosplayers, gamers, fans of the fandom (game, series, manga etc.). Its very useful, because they often know why they love a characters and/or have all the knowledge behind the characters and universes. The persons who is very big fans of something have often researched a lot about their fandom, so they know a lot about it. Also many cosplayers now have gotten a lot of knowledge about clothing (the designs) and character designs. Because they have to find out how to make the costumes and which type of clothing is needed to make (which type of skirt, pants, top, armor etc.). Because its lots of different types/styles of clothing and armor.
