Currently in the cosplay off season I make flower barettes for my girls. But they always try to help and with my dino of a glue gun its hard to not let them get burnt.

When making my cosplay I use it on everything from gemming a shoulder piece. To hemming a cloak. I’ve gotten very creative with my hot glue use. (Its like baby wipes. You are always finding new and intresting ways to use it)


Congrats to Jen! I’ll be sending her an email shortly, and to everyone else, keep an eye out for more contests in the future, and thank you all for entering!

I started getting frustrated, because my fingers were pretty badly burned (it comes with making costumes, I think) and so I tried to work quicker, which just made it worse.

What I found was review after review of Hot Glue Gun Helper– a newish invention by two craft television hosts who were also tired of hot glue burns, and hot glue sticking everywhere it shouldn’t. Continue reading
