    I haven't tried this tactic on such a large scale before so I have NO idea how this is gonna go

    NOTE: this is meant to be a tracking thread! I'd also be super stoked to get any advice/opinions/suggestions

    OKAY SO. I'm trying to sort out what to make for my partner and I to do as our first couples cosplay! we have no clue, BUT there are a few basic things we've got:
    • we're 100% doing homestuck
    • we're 99% doing erifef (unless we get into something else REALLY major before we can do erifef)
    • I have a pattern for one of those swanky cloak things, I guarantee you've seen it on tumblr if you're on tumblr, as part of the "four ways to wear" photoset
    I'm also Not Too Bad at knitting, so an eridan scarf? not out of the question. my main thing is, I know we're not sssssuper feeling the basic canon outfits, so we're probably gonna have to decide between godtiers or kingdomstuck...or any other awesome options available to us
    I also kinda wanna knit some cool stuff to go with it?
    OH ONE MORE POSSIBLE OPTION: we'd cosplay something from one of our.....several dozen RPs, because of who we are as people

    Acey that's my fun and i like fun

    God Tier could be a lot of fun and probably comparatively easy to put together! The pattern for the Witch outfit is pretty simple--I made a Witch outfit myself for my Dog Tier Jade cosplay and it turned out pretty decently despite me being very new to sewing at the time. Not sure how complex the Prince outfit is, but it shouldn't be too hard either? Idk your sewing level, though.

    EDIT: Also, have you ever made horns before? Because if not I have a pretty good method for making really nice lightweight horns out of oasis foam!

    I mean I once made a lightweight double-sided kimono but I haven't had much practice beyond costuming a bit in high school so I think it's do-able, but I'd probs need to refer to my family's help

    re: horns I'm nnnnot sure I'm gonna make them we might commission someone for those

    Kay5 the most glorious spoon

    If you want some pretty simple horns, there are patterns for paper ones where all you need to do is print them out then cut and paste the segments together (then paint them yourself if you're like me and only had access to a BW printer, but the paint covers up any little faults and looks more natural so it was absolutely worth it)

    They do wind up a little bit blocky/polygonal where the segments fit together, but they're easy, cheap, and lightweight enough that they can be pinned straight to your hair/wig without needing to worry about a headband or similar
