So at dragon*con I debuted my Otachi gijinka cosplay! The fitting and patterning and rhinestoning on this costume was all stuff I knew how to do. I have never worked with craft foam before. So. Here is a post about a craft foam newbie’s strugglebus. 

For once I decided to take a lot of pictures of my process of something, and I am here to share with you a… well, I wouldn’t be so presumptious as to call it a tutorial. Call it a documentation of my first time ever working with craft foam, all the struggles and tears, and all the things I learned along the way.

More Otachi pics can be found here

This was a super intense process, and this post is mega exhaustive, so this is under a cut!

A little preview of a certain wig i’ve been working on, its maybe…60-70% done? Spikes need more volume and I have to make his hairline/sideburns and also color the roots more but its coming along nicely. (NOTE: The lighting is rather off here, the wig is a deeper red then this)

Tip Tuesday #84

Have allergies / sensitivities? When commissioning a costume make sure to the let commissioner know! That way they can let you know if there is a possibility of contamination, especially if you have sensitivities to common laundry products or pets!

If you are a commissioner, make sure to inform your clients if you have pets, live in a smoke-filled environment or use products that may cause people to react.
