Hi there! It’s nice to meet you. My name is Kallen, and I’m the founder of Cosplay Catalyst.
Cosplay Catalyst is a passion project of mine, born out of frustration after endlessly searching for hard-to-find, niche cosplay tutorials. If I can save even one person a little time in their search, I know it was worth it.
There’s not much you need to know about me, other than I’m the introvert whose life was forever changed by cosplay. If you have at least one happy memory of cosplay, I think we’ll get along just fine.
My hope is that you’ll come to Cosplay Catalyst for the tutorials, and stay for the community. That you’ll contribute your ideas to this melting pot of creativity, and maybe learn something along the way.
But enough small talk–let’s talk details.
Cosplay Catalyst is a directory of cosplay tutorials and guides. We want to be the starting point in your search for cosplay “how-to’s”, and, we want to make that search easy as possible.
As mentioned we are a directory, meaning we don’t own the tutorials–you do. All tutorials are submitted by the cosplay community, we just categorize, organize, and point you in the right direction. Cosplay Catalyst aims to be a central hub where cosplayers can easily search for tutorials from all across the internet.
Anyone can submit a cosplay tutorial, and it’s easy to do!
Start by clicking “Add a Tutorial” here, or in the main menu. You’ll be directed to a page that asks you for details, such as a title, a description, photos, related tags, and the link to your tutorial. Once submitted, your tutorial will be reviewed by our staff and approved for our directory!
Cosplay Catalyst was built to be easy to use. As cosplayers submit a tutorial to the directory they add related tags, such as the series, character name, material used, or anything else that might be helpful.
Their effort on the back end makes your search on the front end much simpler! You can search for just about anything by typing it into the search box. You can also refine your search by category (I’m looking for props…) or tag (…made of EVA foam).
And the best news is, using Cosplay Catalyst is absolutely free. Submitting tutorials and browsing our directory won’t cost you a thing.
Our tutorial selection is still small, currently, as we’re just starting out. However, we aim to grow exponentially as word gets out! We hope you’ll help us with our growing pains and celebrate our milestones with us. And in return, we promise to celebrate your growth as you learn new skills and create amazing things!
