Cosplay Friday: Steven Lawwill
Steven: Doing good. I can't complain to much
Seamus: I'm glad to hear it. It's been a busy few months for you, I understand, working on getting your studio lately. So, I'm curious. How long have you been making costumes and props?
Steven: Oh, ummm that's a hard question. Probably for the better part of 12 years now. I guess.
Seamus: What got you into it? I mean. You started making your own gear and filling out your team's stuff pretty early. what drove you to do it?
Steven: Insanity, no no, I kid. I guess the thing that drove me to it is I like to look awesome as possible it's a high man, and then I wanted to make others look awesome. Then the rabbit hole got deeper I guess. I just like doing it, I like learning more about it, and I like helping others fulfill their fantasies.
Steven: I like all my projects, but my favorite ones had to be the one I did for my chapter is the one that was for diseased zombies in burlap sacks called the first men and the foam crate covered in fake barbed wire. The entire line was inspired by resident evil and the evil within, I love them. That and I did a starlord helmet for a friend who was doing a crossplay and I loved doing that one it was my first cosplay project, I timed my work too and I finished it in like an hour. Painting was rough though, finishing steps were murder but whole project was done and
Steven: Oh lots; one It's never as complicated as you are thinking, two try it, you never know what you can do till you try, 3rd listen to all forms of tutorials, DIYs, and advice from other crafters. They all help in some way, three never give up even if you mess up, learn from it.
