  1. Hello! I’m a huge fan of your work and I just wanted to ask if it was possible to commission you to make a prop? If not then I understand. Thank you anyways and keep doing what you do!

    • I’m glad you enjoy my work. Unfortunately, I don’t generally take commissions. If you want, you can tell me what you want, when you want it, and what your budget is, and I will consider it. But I can’t promise anything.

  2. Hi!
    I’m from germany and I really really love your ideas.
    After I saw you in “Heroes of Cosplay” I see you as an idol, ’cause I want to become such a great cosplayer and designer like you. Your work inspires me and I hope it gets more and more attetion after the series.
    (hope my english isn’t so bad^^’)

    Please keep going! :3

    Greetings from germany


  3. Hi Jinyo,

    How did you learn to create such amazing costumes? Did you go to school? If you did, where did you go? Also, what kind of sewing machine do you use? I want to learn, and am in the beginning stages. You are inspiring!


    • I learned basic sewing in junior high Home Ec class, and picked up some various techniques in art classes. But for the most part, I taught myself how to do things. There are a lot of tutorials on the internet, depending on what you want to do. Websites like Cosplay.com and TheRPF.com have discussions on specific techniques. Just dive in, be prepared to screw up a lot, and every project will be a learning experience!
