Welcome to our cosplay portfolio! We are an award-winning cosplay couple who specializes complex couture cosplay and original pop culture-based designs. We utilize an wide range of techniques to create costumes that are both intricately detailed and impossibly over the top - our ever-growing skillset includes advanced needlework, extreme wigwork, detailed armor, makeup effects, moldmaking, lighting, and animatronics. With over fifteen years experience, our focus is on learning and creativity, as well as encouraging other cosplayers through tutorials, advice, and convention presentations.
While most of our skillsets overlap, we specialize in different aspects of cosplay. Scone specializes in professional needlework tecniques, including draping, finishing, patterning, and corsetry. Regan focuses on armor detailing, wigwork, and electronics. She also enjoys cosplay competitions and was recently named 2019 Global Champion at The C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay.
We strongly believe in giving back to the community. In additional to free-access tutorials and guides, in 2017 we launched Cosplayers For Cats, which aims to raise money for our favorite charities through our favorite hobby. The name "Cowbutt" and "Crunchies" comes from our first two adopted cats, and 100% of profits from our Patreon or cosplay-related sales are donated to cat-related rescues and organizations. To date we have raised over $15,000 - please visit Cosplayers for Cats for more information!
We pride ourselves on an unusually expansive mastery of many different construction techniques, including needlework, armor, and special effects. This wide range is particularly useful in evaluating the difficulty level and finishing of different cosplays within a competition. We have recently judged at national-level contests in both America and Germany, but very much enjoy encouraging beginners at smaller contests as well.
We love presenting at conventions and shows! Our panels offer a highly educational slant over a large array of topics that spans beginners through experts. Examples of panels and workshops we have presented in the past are:

In general we prefer to travel as a duo, as we each offer different skillsets and function as each others' handlers with larger costumes. However we are open to exceptions travel if need be.
