Hoods are one of those finicky things to draft if you never drafted hoods before.

Q
can we expect a yoko cosplay soon now that you're more open to doing sexy costumes

itscourtoon:

I’m going to hope this is the same anon whose been asking all of these questions.   Because honestly, it kinda hurts to get these asks requesting sexy cosplays now that I’m more “open” to it. 

I’m not more “open” to it than I ever was.   I just rarely do them.  I’ve done costumes that show twice as much skin as Yang, but suddenly now that cleavage is involved, (Which is has been before, I don’t know why it’s suddenly a shock), it’s a whole new me.   It’s not because I’m against them, it’s just because the characters with typical “Sex appeal” aren’t usually part of series that I follow.   But I’ve done Supergirl that shows a lot of midriff, a Mikuru variant who is basically just wearing underwear, Panty… who well… is Panty, and a few others!  So I’m really going to hope that you are the same anon who has sent these multiple messages for my own peace of mind.   

I’d like to do FFX-2 Rikku one day!   Because Rikku is one of my favorite characters, and my first real cosplay.   But since I have a larger chest are people going to think I’m going to be selling out for “Sexy” cosplays?   Apparently so.  I know this sounds like a dick thing to say, but it’s true, I can’t help that I have naturally a pretty large chest.  In fact, I usually bind my chest in some ways for my characters,  I choose too for Anna, Lux, Taiga, Ukraine, Namine, Supergirl, and obviously the male characters I’ve done.  I mean, some of those times It’s cause I make the tops too small and I need to bind for the sake of fitting into the costume… BUT OH WELL. BESIDES THE POINT.  

Also: Yang has canon cleavage- and shows like 2 inches of midriff,  I don’t consider that a “Sexy” costume in the way you are thinking.  

I’d like to think people would respect my choices to cosplay the characters I want too-  And not jump to conclusions for one outfit- which I didn’t even ‘sexify’ I literally did the canon design for.  Which isn’t even that revealing.  People wear 5x less to the beach. 

I have never been more or less open to it.  It’s just not something I don’t do often cause I don’t often relate to characters, or the series they are apart in who follow the “sexy cosplay” code apparently.  But hey, sometimes I do!   Nothing has changed- 

Sorry for the novel.
TLDR:
You must be new here.

Does anyone still do Bleach cosplay? This is a very easy tutorial for making a lieutenant armband. It costs about $10 if you have no supplies already but I made it from scraps.

I haven’t made a post about my own cosplays in a while so I think I should remind you all that I’m not dead.

I also made one at the same time to match:

Q
I wanted to ask your opinion on a cosplay. I would love to cosplay Hazel from The Fault In Our Stars to the premiere, but she has cancer and uses a cannula all the time. Would it be in anyway offensive or ableist for me to have a cannula for the cosplay?
Anonymous
A

necroticnymph:

Yes. Extremely.

Sorry but cancer is a sore subject for me. I watched my father die from cancer. I don’t think there’s any situation where it’s okay to wear a cannula when there’s no medical need, when there are how many people who are forced to wear them due to their condition, and would probably give anything not to need it simply to function. In addition to a cannula, my father had a port in his chest and an ileostomy. If someone tried to replicate those for a cosplay to simply ‘be the character’, I’d be livid.

There are situations when necessary medical devices are not a prop. I can see using a cane, or a walker, or crutches for cosplay (because most of us have had to use one of those in our lifetime for a temporary injury) but seeing as the character has cancer, it comes off to me as remarkably offensive (some people might not see it that way, though).

If I can make a suggestion to this anon- If you want to cosplay Hazel Grace, skip the cannula, Go for her iconic wear, like the ‘This is not a pipe’ shirt, make a dust cover for An Imperial Affliction and put it on a book, get a wig with her haircut from the movie. Make a word bubble you can hold up that says ‘Okay’. Even without the cannula, you can go for appropriate ways to cosplay or pay homage to a character you love.

Fellow cosplayers! I purchased over $100 worth of body paints on Facepaint.com which arrived today and I am doing a test to see how well they go on and endure throughout the day. I thought I would share my test with you since examples and reviews on these brands are quite scarce.

I TESTED: Wolfe (Grey, Pink, White), Tag (Lilac, Yellow, Teal, Light Blue), Mehron Paradise (Mango), Diamond FX (Lavender), Tulip (Pink)

Sealed with: Pro Face Neutral Setting Powder + Ben Nye Final Seal

WOLFE: The 45g pallets are $11 and the 30g are $8 so slightly more expensive than the others but if you can get what you need in their colour selection it is top shelf. Wolfe went on with the least water and gave a very full coverage, it is also super durable initially, you can rub it before sealing with no rub off, though I always suggest sealing. Mixing was simple and smooth, the resulting colours where perfect for the characters I’ll be using them for (Princess Bubblegum and Marceline) though I know a lot of Homestuck cosplayers would love the resulting grey as well! I also love how the medium size pots stack and twist into each other for better storage.

TAG: I purchased these based on 1 brief review and their impressive selection of colours and I must say I am super glad I went with my gut on this one. Great price, I got them on sale for $6.75, reg $8.25 which is pretty un-beatable for paint this quality. The colours went on with good opacity (a bit lower than Wolfe and Mehron but not too noticeably) and not very much water, also rubbed after drying with no rub off (again, always seal). Their quality is great and colour selection is wonderful. The colours I got where perfect as is for the characters I got them for (light blue for Maya from Borderlands,lilac for LSP, yellow for Lemongrab, teal for BMO. 

MEHRON PARADISE: Got this on sale for $6.75, reg $8, good price wise. Smells DELICIOUS! I love coconuts so this was a really neat little addition, even after powdering and sealing with a very minty smelling seal it smells like coconut butter or sunscreen. High quality, the colour went on nearly as thick as the Wolfe, not a ton of water needed to activate. The mango colour is exactly what I needed for Flame Princess from Adventure Time!

DIAMOND FX: These are $7.25 each so regular price is a bit lower than the others, if you get it on sale it could be a great value.TheLavender I got goes on EXACTLY the same colour as the TAG in Violet. The only difference I see from this test is the Diamond FX looks to go on slightly less opaque. Between the 2 I will be using the TAG first but it isn’t at all a bad fall-back option.

TULIP: I got these at Michaels craft store and have had them for a long time now in teal (not in this test) and this pink, the teal really stained something hard. It doesn’t show very well in the photos but it doesn’t go on the smoothest, slightly texturey and reptile-ish but could definately work in a pinch. I wouldn’t really recommend this unless you can’t get the others and it’s this or snazaroo as it does go on with better skin coverage and isn’t as eager to rub off. 

KRYOLAN: I have used Kryolan Aquacolor in the past (not in this test) and I honsetly prefer all of these (except the tulip) over the Kryolan which went on fairly thin and liked to rub off on things and just be generally blotchy with the slightest hint of sweat.

OVERALL: These have all held up very well over the past 6 hours of wear, no noticable change in any. I’ve even been scratching my arm and rubbing them on my desk as I type and draw. I am mostly in love with the Wolfe paints, they went on with the best opacity and I love the stackability, I just wish they had a larger colour selection. My second pick is the TAG, lots of colours and great quality over all. Mehron is a close 3rd and I would love to try more of their paints. Diamond FX is 4th choice, a bit cheaper regular price but not as highly pigmented as the others. Tulip is 5th, not the best but passes in a pinch.

Hi there!A few weeks ago I attended a convention in my Sasha cosplay, and it was totally worth dealing with the 100 degree weather. I just wanted to share this with you, and thank you for creating these characters, because all of them have impacted my life in some way, Sasha especially. So thank you so much!


Ok Sasha was on screen for maaaaaybe 10 minutes total and I’m not sure if she actually had any lines (I think she might have shouted something in Russian as they were being attacked) and this character impacted OP’s life?? I mean….good for you, I guess.


Yes, she did, because she didn’t have to speak for her to have an impact. The first time we see her you can tell she’s a badass. She’s beautiful, she wears full makeup into battle, and  you can tell nobody fucks with her. She’s the dominating one in her marriage to a 7ft tall, strong ass Russian man, and you can see this because a) cafeteria scene;
She’s calling him over. When he sits down, she pulls him to her and he just lets her.
b) When that whole shit fest with Gipsy’s test run goes down; Aleksis is clearly uncomfortable about standing on that catwalk, BUT HE DOESN’T MAKE ANY MOVE TO LEAVE UNTIL SASHA STARTS MOVING. Sasha stares that fucking plasma gun down and she is pissed that she even has to move, because she isn’t scared of it.
c) WHEN WE FIRST MEET THEM, GUESS WHO’S WALKING IN FRONT;IT’S SASHA.
And d) She is Pilot 1 of Cherno; Aleksis is Pilot 2. Sasha is the one that calls out the orders, she talks to LOCCENT the most, she tells Aleksis what to do in Cherno, and he LISTENS TO HER. 
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO SEE A BIG TALL MAN LISTEN TO HIS WIFE LIKE THIS? IT’S AMAZING. BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENS. THERE’S A STRONG MAN ON SCREEN? HE’S THE LEADER, CLEARLY. NOT IN PACIFIC RIM. BOTH MAKO AND SASHA KICKED THAT STEREOTYPE IN THE FUCKING FACE, THEY KICKED ASS, AND LOOKED GOOD DOING IT.
And when Cherno does go down, Sasha isn’t screaming in fear of death, she’s screaming because she can’t take the kaiju down with her. And that’s badass as hell.
(Ps, she has 10 lines. And she’s cussing in Russian when they’re fighting.)

Beautiful.

The cosplay was great enough but the commentary made this an instant reblog.

do you ever wish you could put a disclaimer on your amazon shopping profile?  

like, i’m really not a gun-toting psychopath intent on destroying the government.  i’m just looking for holsters and tactical gear for a costume i’m doing in june.  or, please don’t send my information to the feds.  i don’t want to be arrested with spray paint on my hands and black eye-makeup smeared around my eyes.
