What a good friend!!
Bean makeup test! I’m so happy with this cosplay, y’all. (The Luci prop didn’t work out but still!!)
(Also lmk if the pic is too massive!)
You look good with white hair!
So, I want to make a brooch for a cosplay I'm doing. It's a 2d design, so that simplifies some things, but I'm not sure what the best material would be. I'm looking for something that can take acrylic paint, can be cut with scissors or a craft knife, and ideally at least a little sturdy.
At the moment, my best ideas are either cutting up a cheap plastic cutting board (weirdly hard to find, those things) or giving up 'sturdy' and just making it out of cardstock.
i'd suggest chipboard? it's p easy to paint afaik, takes most commonly available glues well and is very easy to cut with craft knives and scissors unless you go too thick. Very customizable, pretty durable.
I've found air dry clay pretty good for stuff like that. It's super light, easy to work with and stays fairly flexible when it's dry
me realizing i can cosplay persephone from lore olympus without much trouble
