Hi there, I’m Jin! I’m the designated writer for this blog. Let me tell you about Tux Team.
Tux Team is basically my group of friends, and we came to be known by that name in the cosplay community for, uh, some reason or another.
We don’t even wear tuxedos much. However, the name grew on us and we decided to just roll with it!
We’re just a bunch of creative nerds who have varying specialties, and despite our differences we enjoy a lot of stuff together. Our skill sets include: propmaking, sewing, painting, wig styling, character makeup, digital and traditional illustration, shooting photos and videos, and so on.
In our free time, we like to make use of our abilities to help each other put together costumes and execute cosplay shoots. Sometimes we are also invited as guests to conventions, where we hold panels to share the things we’ve learned.
We don’t really have a strict roster or anything like that. We’re not a formal organization and I wouldn’t even call us a club — we’re really just a bunch of friends who hang out and do these things for fun. 😄 Tux Team is simply a collective nickname we use for cosplay, to make it easier to refer to us as a group.
Here are some samples of our work that you may have seen floating around on the internet:
