Up your cosplay game with a few extra items that don't require a sewing machine!

About this Class

Cosplay requires a huge number of items in addition to your main costume, and this class will focus on giving you the skills to make items in a few different materials. Our goal will not be to make a cohesive set of items for a single cosplay, but rather to set you up with the skills to make what you need for your own future projects! You will learn basic skills for building and finishing EVA foam, painting fabrics, and creating small accessories from faux fur.


  • For students ages 14-18.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 10.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to that email address.
  • Complete and return this minor permission form.
  • You can register your youth for an optional supervised lunch from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.

  • A materials fee of $40 is included in the price of the class and covers all materials. 


You will make an EVA foam crown or faceplate, a set of faux fur ears, and an anime-style cel shaded shirt or jacket.


Bring a solid-colored, button-up shirt or denim jacket that you are willing to modify (this can be from a thrift store, but all items need to be washed).
