Hey sweeties, its Shappi, welcome back to my channel! tell me! have you ever been in this situation during Holidays? oooh that one is for me, thanks mom! this is marshmallows ( in polish its the same word as foam) mom i wanted Eva Foam no,not foam from aunt Eva EVA FOAM ok, this one will work as well which can mean that this video is for you or for your family which dosent really know what to do about having a cosplayer in family so i made a list for you the most usefull cosplay products which we would love to see as a christmas gift if you want to avoid getting bad presents keep on watching! Grab a coffee or cocoa beacuse this video will be a long one i already have foams to my hot chocolate :>lets go ive decided that this list must be quite elastic about budget so the gifts are good for everyone lets start with the smaller, cheaper options which can be an addition to a big gift or you can make a huge giuft with those smaller items at first lets talk about stuff which cosplayers use non stop so it will be very usefull for example, hot glue sticks those sticks go super fast you can buy them in castorama in big bulks, 1-2 kg boxes its around 18 usd for this big box another glue which we use quite often is super glue this would be a good idea to add it too for people who likes sewing i think practical gift will be new bobbins, needes for hand sewing or machine, safety pins etc nice innovation will be also clips which hold fabric together on edges, its a replacement for pins all those items you should be able to get in your local store with sewing supplies or on the Internet something that every cosplayer will use and always runs out quickly are new sharp cutting blades you can either buy a whole box of scalpels in a nice package this should be a nice gift or you can buy a bigger knives more expensive but better quality boxcutter with extra blades in a box sharp knife is a must when you want to make costume so i think every cosplayer will apperciate this gift another thing that we use quite often are brushes i recommend getting nylon brushes with artificial hair, they are must softer and therefore its easier to use them, they are more precise too you can get brushes in a nice, full sets of diffrent shapes and sizes so it also should look nice under the tree for cosplayers who are into styling wigs, i will recommend hair spray the best the strongest one you can find in store we use them so often that they run out fast i guess cosplayer will apperciate such gift it will be a good idea to get them a mannequin head for wig stylisation you can either get a styrofoam ones, they are cheap but get damaged quickly or you can either invest in more sturdy, plastic one on a stand overall getting a new wig isnt bad at all too but we have to find out which character the person is planning to cosplay or at least which colour and lenght of the wig we need to get last thing that just came up into my mind will be half pearls used for decoration you can get them in any art supply store, they come in diffrent shapes, sizes and colours us cosplayers use it for diffrent purpose like details usually we use them as fake rivets, or details in scuplting, in armors, something that we can paint over later, and looks nice and consistent with our foam project i always use a lot of them in armor, so i think that cosplayers should enjoy this gift lets get to gifts which are a bit more expensive but essential if you want to build up your workshop i will for sure recommend a lot of tools, first one of it will be dremel this multitool can be bought in about 25 – 80 USD price range, its a quite okay price and this tool is super usefull we can use it for cutting, sanding, making holes, its really usefull for any cosplay for sure usefull thing will be also new hot glue gun us cosplayers use a lot of them and they often get broken since we use them thast much so if we want to make a good gift, lets get one good quality gun and it will be used for a long time its a good idea to buy a heat gun too this is a tool that we use often with thermoplastics new sewing machine will be a great gift but this one is rather expensive prices of quite good machines start from 80-100 USD up i also recommend getting anairbrush, but in a set with compressor the gun itself wont work without compressor with this tool we can paint a big surfaces but getting normal acrylic paints is a good idea as well! In art supply stores you can get even a ready premade boxes full of paints in diffrent colours i will always recommend getting basic colours – you know, black, white, browns, reds ( for weathering) the ones you use a lot if you know that your cosplayer already have an airbrush at home then it will be a good idea to buy them a set of paints for airbrush this paints are rather expensive so we try to buy them carefully, less at a time so i think such paint set will be really apperciated gift another and i think quite versitile gift will be plastic suitcase cosplayers travel a lot with lots of luggage from convetion, to photoshoot, to diffrent city and good suitcase with wheels and nice hand will be a real life saver i also thinkt hat such suitcase will be a reasonable gift even for parents who are not really fine with cosplay as a hobby so if you have such problem with your parents and you ar enot sure what to ask your parents for try suitcase 🙂 speaking about gifts which are quite practical and usefull for parents which wants to give their kids something smart it will be cosplay books unfortunatelly in Poland we have only one book which is printed and ready to buy in book stores its Kamuis Cosplay book about armors, which, i ( not bragging) translated so i know every sentence in this book and can really recommend it but if your family knows english very well, why not order book from abroad? i will really recommend you books of Punished Props, Kamui Cosplay, Lightning Cosplay or there is a new book from Yaya Hans coming out all the links will be down there in the comments so you can find them easily this is not a sponsorship plug, i really respect those people wrok 🙂 the year is ending so it may be a good idea to get your loved ones a 2020 calendar but not a normal calendar, maybe cosplayer calendar? Maybe mine cosplay calendar?:D many cosplayers make their own calendars and i also did mine! here you can see previews of it which will look at you from your wall for 12 months and will say “do this costume, no procrastination, you got it” many people get those calendars for christmas from what i know they work well so i will recommend it too if you want to get mine i will be very happy and gratefull 🙂 all the links down in description another great idea for a gift will be rolls of EVA foam or Worbla those are thermoplastics which are used in nearly all costumes you can get them in diffrent sizes, thickness and colours so it should be a fitting present for any budget you can get big rolls of this material in online cosplay shops like coscon or coscraft you need a place to cut your foams so i will recommend getting a self healing mat i saw those mats in polish book store chain but cheaper and bigger versions can be bought in art supply stores its great pad for any type of work also beacuse its self healing, so if you cut it with blade it will repair itself with time if we are talking about cutting, there is no better gift for people who sew than a pair of good fabric scizzors those scizzors can be really expensive their price can start from 20-25 usd its quite an investment but those scizors are irreplaceable, such a good add to your tool box they are so sharp and profiled this way that its easy to cut fabric on the flat space of floor or table my life changed a lot since i got myself a pair of these so i recommend it to everyone last idea for today will be organizers all plastic boxes, tubes, chests, special boxes for bobbins anything that will help your cosplay friends to keep their workshop clean i think thats all what i have for you today in this long gift list i hope that i helped you a bit to pick gifts for your cosplay friends I thin that very wise of you will be to share this video with your family or friends who need guidance in getting you a gift this year if you want Santa to get you right gift this year then like, share this video let this video fly far ;D to make things even easier i left all links to the items i talked about today in the description box thanks a lot for watching me today i wish you a wonderfull Holidays this year all great food, nice conversations, cool gifts, lots of relax and maybe less of those conversations with grannies/aunts who will bug you ” where id your girlfriend? did you finish school? start working!!” maybe less of that and more of just silence and resting ;D as always here you can subscribe to me and here you can find my Patronite ( Patreon link in the description) here are more of my videos! thanks a lot for today and it will be all otherwise i will eat whole package of those marshmallows while recording… bye!
