Neil Gaiman: Does this really need saying? Oh,... →
neil-gaiman: A small for-the record, which seems to me so obvious I never thought it would actually have to be said, but… COSplay is its own artform, and its own branch of fandom. I love it when I see people, of any gender, in well-done or enthusiastic costumes of characters that I made up, whether from…
batmanvswild asked: Any chance you'd be willing to make posters like you did for CONvergence for Dragon*Con? Rebecca Watson said she'd help me. The "Costumes are not consent" and "creep free" ones would be best. I suppose it could be the exact same poster if you are too busy to make something specific for D*C. I'll be sure to have Rebecca give you credit if she posts about it on...
mischievous: horns tutorial part 1 →
twinarmageddon: okay since people asked, here it is the first part of my horns tutorial aradia’s are probably the most difficult, anyway the step-by-step process is basically the same for all horns. mind that some like karkat’s or equius broken horn can be done without a skeleton due their size. probably terezi… Click on it, this is fucking great.
Just realized my title is misspelled. huh.
previouslysane: what if every convention had cosplayers like you went to a business convention and someone cosplayed as a stapler
Photography and the Plus Sized cosplayer →
unironiclyenthusiastic: I agree, and its frustrating. So fucking frustrating. When you ask someone (who is in a group or paired!) to step out of the pic, you are being a HUGE douchbag. I don’t give a flying fuck if you are worried about atheistic, this is not your privet photo shoot, and if you want to be deeming and rude, you damn well better be paying the Cosplayers a whole fuck ton of money....
Ok I have made a firvouls little kids cosplay...
Here: http://littlecostumes.tumblr.com/ You should check it out. Its not much yet, nor do I think it ever will be, but I love kids in costumes. they are great!
I'm thinking about making a frivolous tumblr blog...
What think you guys? I mean I practicably squee everytime I see a little one in cosplay. omg Parenting win. everytime.
So, I got Charlie's MLP wings glued.
But I think the wire might not be strong enough to hold them up and out. I am planning on attaching them to the back of a blue hoodie (He’s going as Soarin’ of the Wonderbolts) So I think I might need to try and add more wire inbetween the foam…. yay. lol
Make your own Dress form, OMFG I need →
This woman made her own custom dress form for fitting clothes specificly to her. OMFG I need this, one for every person I sew for, Jesus, it would make my life CAKE! Think of it, one day with a dress form and then I never have to deal with making time to meet someone for a simple fitting? LOVE IT.
Craft Foam Armor Tutorial →
This is the tutorial I’ll be using for my BF’s Green Arrow Costume. Its the closest thing I could find to sewing and painting, which I’ve been doing forever. I’m already using craft foam for Charlie’s MLP wings and ears. So I have plenty laying around.
So... I'm stupidly excited to do this one...
tipsybutt: And this other cosplay… And this third cosplay…. You know what, I’m excited for my next convention season. Hahahaha Me too, I just keep adding more to my plate, but its so FUN.
>AWSOME< My Son wants to be Soarin' From MLP

A New Adventure: Making Armor
So I’ve been readin (and watching) up on how to make Costume Armor. My background is in sewing, and prop making has been a largely new arena for me in the past few years. I can mod Nerf guns like nobody business. (tutorial and pics to come) But the whole making armor thing I can honestly say I’ve never attempted. Well, with this green arrow costume coming up, that’s going to have...
