both painting the underside, and sealing the hell out of them ought to work.
Any idea if it's possible to get foam to hold a right angle? I must Be The Robot, but I'm a little bit [screaming internally] at the idea of using plastics for my first non-cloth cosplay...
cut an angle, glue, and reinforce with triangle pieces?
my tech theater teacher way back in high school (about...hrm 7-9 years ago) showed us how he did it for a box! it's definitely do-able, I think you'll want a stiffer foam and then do like winterykite said
i'm going as Kaito Kid for halloween this year, as thus far i have:
white suit pants (thrift store)
white suit jacket (thrift store)
dark blue dress shirt (thrift store)
so i need
white cape (i will make it)
white stovepipe hat (i will make it)
red tie (i'm sure i can find one at a thrift store or something)
fuck yeah halfway done.
Oh man I don't think I ended up posting the EGX photos! I dusted off my Giratina cosplay.
Attempted to make claws, same way I made the Vriska ones, but it kinda. Did not end up working. Self-adhesive velcro is a fuckin lie.
Makeup! I messed this one up a bit and it looks clown-y, on the test run it looked more like the open mouth it was supposed to be uu_uu
I need to redo the damn helmet. It's a disaster. (It's also broken because some asshole ran against it in transport.)
What you can't see: I added those rib-things to the legs as well. Not enough time for the arms. Should've prioritized that.
Also: I have a full armor design for Giratina and one day I'm going to make it and it's going to be awesome.
@IvyLB took the three bottom pics
Also: There are now official pictures of my Darkrai cosplay! Whoo!!
Putting it on took longer than anticipated and Ivy and I struggled to get enough light, but some shots are a+ local cryptid material.
The mask is made out of paper mache wallpaper. I did not let it dry enough, so even though I molded it directly onto my face it's kind of floppy. Didn't want to literally glue it on today.
The only reason I got as close to Darkrai's waistline in the first place was a combo of corset, hoop skirt (which I didn't hike high enough because it's made of bullshit) and a petticoat. Last image has me leaning onto the lamp post so I don't fall over. Balance is an illusion.
Thank you again @IvyLB for trekking out with me when it was getting dark and taking pictures!
i literally just wish I had a decent dslr, knew how to use it and had like shit like zoom lenses and such to do a better job as oyur photographer xP
Wow, Kite, those are fantastic! How did you do the glowy necklace bit on the Darkrai one? :0
an led string connected to a power pack, and the leds are stuffed into translycent red resin globs.
a good deal of that was my sperm donors work so i cant give you more deets on the how exactly.
we went the led route because you couldnt see the resin globs on my coat. next time, ill know to use more dye, lol
also thank you ::3
Hey, so I´m making some gloves out of tights for Grimdark Rose. One tutorial suggests sewing with a small zigzag stitch, one suggest just a small normal one. Which is better?
I'd suggest small zigzag stitch, unless your machine has a specific 'for stretchy fabric' stitch setting, bc a normal stitch will go real weird unless you sew it over a perfectly sized stretched form?
both tutorial stretch over a handshape traced onto cardboard.
Hey guys, I'm gonna be trying something different on saturday and doing my Pearl costume without the bodysuit and facepaint. A lot of fem-presenting people do pearl that way, so I'm. gonna be brave. I have never done a cosplay without facepaint before.
But I still wanna look decent, so I gotta do some "normal" makeup (also to help hide any possible stubble).
Help? Advice? Tutorials?
for hiding any possible beard shadow or stubble have you looked at drag tutorials? the rest kinda depends on your faceshape and what look you're aiming for tbh
pardon the pajamas but: I made a new cape finally. c: and I'm so happy with it. aaaa. just need to make new pants, touch up the god tier shirt a bit... paint the pants and the skirt, make new time wheels..
Spoiler: big pics my roomie took. c:
I got most of the stuff for my Bean cosplay! I’ve just gotta wait for my fake buck teeth to arrive and get some leather strings (or, if those aren’t available, yarn) to add to the top of the tunic. c:
I still need to cut the wig and make the Luci prop, though. I was going to attach Luci to my shoulder somehow but idk how doable that’s gonna be, so I’ll just carry him I think. Gotta practice doing fake freckles, too...
Aaaaaah I’m really excited for this cosplay!! :D
EDIT: I should note that I’m going to be making Luci out of foam poster board, since he’s canonically shown as 2D!
THE WIG HAS BEEN CUT AND IT LOOKS EXCELLENT TBH
(Pardon my weird face idk what was going on with my eyes there :P)
Sorry for the spam, but I did the detail work on my Bean tunic! I basically just poked a few holes in the fabric, threaded some leather through, and tied it on the other side. c:
i forgot to put the pics here. but. my childe turned out really derpy. the bits at the back of his head weren't appearing for some reason, and i jacked his his tail attachment, try as i might to not, bc the butt I'd sewn onto him before was malformed. I'd started him like a YEAR ago and only just now finished so. wygd. BUT. I had fabric left from making my cape. so i made him a tiny time cape as well, permanently attached it, and now he's a dapper dapper boi who I will be taking to colossalcon with me.
Spoiler: pics were too mighty to make thumbnail uploads, so have big pics.
