We have an important announcement to make to our readers from the US territories: due to new additional security measures imposed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the total time it will take for our magazine to get to you will reach up to 4-6 weeks. As of January, all our packages dispatched for the US will be sent with a tracking number (free of charge) for localization in case of delays or lost packages. We’re sorry for the inconvenience!

In other news, our third issue is almost done, we’ll be coming back soon with more details. Keep a watch out!

While the cosplay subculture doesn’t have nearly enough videos as others to express how amazing it truly is, regardless if to some people it is just a hobby or a way of life, there are still some videos out there that caught our attention.

Cosplay Gen: What is your favorite cosplay up till now and why?
Yolkler: I don’t have a favorite cosplay, because I always think I can make another one that’s better. But, up till now, maybe Mononoke (Kusuriuri), because Japanese people told me that my Kusuriuri cosplay is the same as the Kusuriuri character. [..]

Cosplay Gen: You specialize in geisha costumes and traditional cosplay; how long did you research geisha and traditional make-up and fashion in order to reach this level?
Monique: Two years and ongoing. It’s a learning process and I can safely say that, considering the amount of information and the depth of this particular culture, I am still a beginner. I don’t believe I have the right to say that I am any more than that – I believe that I’m always learning new things and trying to get better as much as I can. [..]

Cosplay Gen: How did you make the Master Chief suit?
Zam: The process is actually simple. The base layers are made from a thick 250gsm matte card. Here, the details and main structure come to life. After that, all the finished paper structure is covered with fiberglass resin to make it rigid. Matte Card absorbs it and becomes rigid from inside out. Fiberglass mat was used in the inside to avoid the details on the outside getting covered. The fiberglass just makes the paper structure more rigid so it can withstand some sort of damage when wearing it. [..]
