Makeup test for Wrathia! I put the horns on for the first time, they aren’t sticking incredibly well but that’s because I applied them a bit wrong. Hopefully next time it works out better haha. Also, don’t mind that I’m not wearing my contacts or wig

Hi, I love your Fuu cosplay :D I'm in the planning stages to cosplay her at the moment and I was wondering if you could give me any advice/tips from when you made yours? Especially on the kimono as it's the bit I'm most nervous about 0_o Cheers!

Thanks! My best advice really is to just use a lot of references and go at your own pace, try things out and see what you think of them and if it doesn’t look right tweak it a bit. For the flower pattern I used paint, if you use this method be sure to put something between the sleeves to avoid the paint bleeding through! It can be an easy thing to forget. Best of luck! Fuu is such a fun cosplay, I’m sure you’ll have a blast :) if you have any other questions or have something specific in mind you’d like to know about feel free to ask. I hope you don’t mind me publishing this! I usually publish cosplay help/tips asks.

I did a super quick (and sloppy) make up test for Wrathia this morning, I already have some ideas for how I want to do it next time to make it better.  The last test I did was my arm, next I’ll probably do my feet/legs or do a full body test.  Once I get my dress done and have the wig I’ll put everything on and get some pictures taken! c:

Blarrgggghhhhh I put the bunches way too high and messed it all up. 

This is what happens when you look up a reference after you pin things.

Anyway, this is some more WIP on Jade’s 3 AM dress. This stuff isn’t sewn yet, it’s all pinned.  I was pretty proud of this but I’ve got to unpin and repin it now.

Here’s my main reference:  

Too lazy to crop.

WIP on my Wrathia cosplay :) My horns are sculpted, I’m going to start applying latex tomorrow. I was messing around with putting latex on my skin for texture but I think I like the paint by it’s self better. 

If you guys have any opinions on the skin thing I’m happy to take them?

I got an ask about my trickster Rose logo so I thought I should post this for anyone might find it useful! I painted mine on but I just put this together using asksewingsekret’s Rose logo for those that like to use iron ons and things like that. 

I’m not sure if this will help anyone at all but I wanted to post it just in case : )
Also, here’s a full size version in case Tumblr shrinks it terribly.

Got my Wrathia makeup and wig on to take some pictures, there weren’t very many I liked but one of them is being used as my sidebar now so that my sidebar matches the new color of my theme. (The last sidebar was almost completely green)

The dress definitely took longer to make than my other cosplays but it wasn’t an insanely dumb amount of time.  Not counting the like two month break I took it took a total of about a month?  But that includes going to school, work, and doing other stuff in between.  I wish I could give a more specific time range but I made it about a year ago and my memory doesn’t quite remember so much that far back! I can say for sure that it wasn’t a huge time sucker though, if I had REALLY wanted to and spent a good chunk of the day on it everyday I could have gotten it done in a week or two.

Ok the torso!! I really, really hope this isn’t confusing but there’s pictures and step by step stuff under the cut. Make sure to read the entire thing before you try anything!

Should I cosplay 3AM or deadshuffle Jade for Natsucon?

For deadshuffle I wouldn’t wear the suit coat (like in the picture above) because of the heat but I would carry it around just in case it doesn’t get as hot as I think it will. But I’ve pretty well narrowed what I want to wear down to these two so any opinions?
