and it's not even fancy

Crazy the difference makeup and 12 years in Azkaban can make, huh? ;) My makeup on the left was done by the amazing @aegiskitty ; I did the Sirius cosplay makeup on the right. I’m actually more familiar with fx makeup than the regular stuff, so I definitely needed some pointers. Pointer one: we nixed the beard on the left.

Tools for Painting Props

Even an expert painter would have trouble leaving a smooth coat if their brushes were garbage. You need to make sure you have the proper gear before you begin painting your prop! Here are some of the basic tools that you’ll need:

Brushes

For Glue (low-quality)

You’ll go through these fast, so don’t spend a lot of money on them. 

●     A thin-tipped brush

●     A medium-tipped brush

●     A fat-tipped brush

For Sealant (low to moderate quality)

Since sealants harden, these brushes will also need to be replaced at some point. Don’t overspend.

●     A thin-tipped brush

●     A medium-tipped brush

●     A fat-tipped brush

For Paint (high-quality)

●     A thin-tipped brush

●     A medium-tipped brush

 

Everything Else

Primer

This is 100%, irrefutably, totally, non-negotiably crucial to painting. You don’t use primer, your project looks bad. End of story.

Sand paper

You’ll need this for sanding out bumps in the primer.

Palette

It doesn’t have to be fancy. Anything that won’t disintegrate and taint your colors will do.

Gloves

Smock/Apron/Old Clothes

Protective Covers for Your Work Area

Waterproof Sealant

If you don’t use this, than you paint job will bleed, run, and look generally gross.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that there aren’t any specific tools listed here. That’s because there are as many kinds of paints as their are materials for construction! This is a checklist to follow when you start painting any kind of project, whether it’s in wood, fabric, Wonderflex, paper mache…you get the idea.

so I may have wasted at least ten hours of my life and made a fully themed original coaster in Planet Coaster

It has triggers! And over 7 excitement! And a Yeats quote hanging in the station!

I’m gonna keep poking at it and upload it to the Steam workshop shortly and then I’m gonna go take a long hard look at my life and my priorities

Forgive me, but I beg for your wisdom. I am a smol unfashionable child of the jeans-and-tshirts-no-makeup-hair-braided flavor, BUT I recently got a Great haircut and went shopping and got some Excellent clothes!!! But how do you get the motivation to put together a Look every day, when jeans-and-tshirts are so easy? Like??? Is there a secret to it? Do you just have to go for it and wear the fancy dress even tho its just a normal Tuesday? What if it looks weird??? I beg your kind and wise advice.

well your question is actually about two different things, as I see it.

1) can I be fancy on a normal Tuesday and will I look weird if I do? 

don’t overthink this, if you feel like wearing something dramatic and fancy, wear it. people may be surprised at how polished you look, but that’s not a bad thing. as our gay patron saint oscar wilde said, you can never be overdressed, and he wore capes everywhere, so he knew what he was talking about.

2) how do I find the motivation to put together a Look every day?

you don’t. that’s just a fact. I probably put together a Look four days out of seven, and the rest of the time I’m going to be comfortable. the key is to own fashionable things which are comfortable, and no one will be able to tell the difference. you’re living in, to borrow a phrase, the best of all possible worlds when it comes to the comfy/fashionable flashpoint, because current trends are all about oversized silhouettes and dressing up loungewear. sneakers are in. block heels are in. dresses with balloon sleeves made of sweatpants material are in. jumpsuits, slouchy coordinates, baggy culottes, big sweaters, this is your time. add metallic accents, fishnet, a bright lipstick, and you’re done. check out brands like ASOS White and Monki for your Pajamas On The Street needs, and use those pieces to fill in the blanks on the days you’d really rather not get off the couch. we all have those moments, even exceedingly extra people like me. you just have to make sure you have the arsenal for them.

Sf9 As Burgers/Sandwiches

Inseong: A croissant sandwich with lettuce cheese bacon ham and tomatoes that tries to look fancy but at the end of the day it’s just a croissant being extra. Mostly likely from Starbucks.

Jaeyoon: Grilled Cheese sandwich with extra extra extra cheese. But the fancy kinds you get at nice cafes but also could just be a homemade grilled cheese you make at home that you sometimes put other things inside like ham or spam because you were so hungry and its so GOOD.

Youngbin: A nice burger with a huge thick patty with loads of generous toppings in it. And when you bite into it, cheese goo and etc spills out but it’s sooo bomb/tasty. (Why do I feel so weird typing that).  Could also be a burger at barbecue during a family get together.

Rowoon: In n Out Burger, really popular. Looks good and taste good. People come from different areas/countries to try the burger because it’s so popular. Double Cheese, Double the Patty.But he could also be a nice breakfast sandwich you get at fancy cafes to drink with your tea/coffee so Idk.

Dawon: Could be Five Guys/Shake Shack Burger but also Any Bacon Cheeseburger from The Most Known Fast Food Chains (McDonald’s, Jack In The Box). But also could be a signature burger from a popular food truck that everyone orders a lot that ends up promoting on the food channel.

Zuho: Burgers at restaurants in the airport or festivals like kcon/convention where it’s either insanely expensive or cheap but SUPER tasty and sometimes looks super extra too like a pork belly candied bacon cheese potato crisp burger or some shit like that thats like hugely STACKED with a stick in the middle to hold its shape.

Taeyang: One of those special limited time pulled pork sandwiches with spicy secret sauce that when you eat, you werent sure at first but then you get hooked and people kept asking for it so much it ends up staying on the menu.

Hwiyoung: Really fancy prepared burger made by a professional chef on their own cooking show on tv. Everything is fresh never frozen and tendered and cared for and made with love to be honest and like the meat and stuff has to be cooked for a certain amount of time or it wont taste the same.

Chani: The burger/sandwich your mom makes that will always remind you of home and it’s so delicious and you love it so much. Even though it doesn’t look too fancy but its one of the best burgers you’ve ever had.

Ps: Yes ik this reaction is super extra but yall requested this LMAO ❤️
