Persona Tarot Cards

Persona arcana cards

Persona-lized (haha, sorry!) tarot cards are a nice little prop to have when cosplaying characters from the Persona series. You can download here the same digital file that we used to get our own tarot cards printed. Each card has been colour corrected by Fé so the images are sharp and nicely contrasted. The file is in PDF format and is ready to be taken to the printer.

Catherine wig WIP

Let me show you our progress in pictures! Actually, we’re almost ready, me being the one that still has the most work left to be done since I decided to completely do over my corset for Catherine about one month ago. We’re heading over to Toronto next Wednesday so that leaves us only 5 days to get everything finished!

Our cosplay schedule is:
Friday: Catherine and Katherine from Catherine
Saturday and Sunday: Elizabeth and Margaret from Persona 3 and 4

On Sunday at 12 pm we’re hosting a panel on cosplay construction with VickyBunnyAngel and Ani_BEE. See you there~!

Persona 3 Evoker Tutorial

Evoker (Persona 3 gun)

I was in charge of making the evokers for our Persona 3 group last year and the method I used ended up being quite simple and inexpensive so why not share it?
