Penguin’s Sweater

Anyone want to know where to find Penguin’s sweater from last week’s GOTHAM?

Look familiar? I searched on amazon and ended up finding the exact one they used in the episode! Here’s a link:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IGC48QA/ref=twister_B01IGBWEFI?th=1

For reference: I am wearing a size SMALL here. Thing fits PERFECTLY.
Shoulder to shoulder: 16“
Arm Length: 23“
Body Length: 24“
Chest: 19″ across (~37″ around)
Waist: 16″ (32″ around) stretchy sweater waist.

Made of 100% cotton so it does have a chance of shrinking in the wash if you dry it on high (probably).

The only review on amazon was a guy saying there are some strings sticking off. I have found a few on mine and it’s just the ends of the skeins when it was being made. Poke them inside or tie them off and you’ll have nothing to worry about.

AS OF MAY/7/2017 1:00PM (MOUNTAIN TIME)

THERE ARE THESE LEFT IN STOCK

SMALL - 3          ($11.61)
MEDIUM - 1       ($47.50)
LARGE - 2          ($57.69)
X-LARGE - 3      ($31.90)
XX-LARGE - 2    ($50)

Shipping was about $5 (on mine at least).

Here’s a closeup of the pattern if you want to try to recreate it or screen print it onto a non-knitted material. Consists of 2 shades of maroon with one blue and one gray. Also this type of sweater is called a MOCK NECK.

G.H. Bass and CO is the brand (Not sold on their website anymore.)

Happy hunting! And remember to wash it with vinegar the first time through to keep the colors lasting longer!
If you need anymore details on it send me an ask (I’m cool with anons)!

So this is the second time ive had to add hair to a lace front. the first time was for the gamagori wig I made forever ago and i used a self threading needle with the help of @firewolf826‘s  tutorial this time around i decided to try a hook latch hook needle using @cowbuttcrunchies tutorial

i like both techniques for different reasons. the latch hook is a little hard to get into fine lace but it does a beautiful job at grabbing small amounts of fibers with out kinking/denting/damaging them in the process. the self threading needle was great for fine lace, also gathered larger amount of hair really well. 

would defiantly recommend the self threading needle if you are working with shorter fibers and looking to get a full thicker hairline the latch hook for a thinner and delicate hairline

Practice good cosplay habits: At the con

☆ Try and arrive early☆
If you’re staying at a hotel or at someone’s house/apartment, try and get there an hour or two early. This way you can unwind a bit after travelling, especially if you’ve travelled for a while, and unpack a bit. Hang up those outfits and maybe take the time to iron out some of your pieces that might have gotten wrinkled in travel. On the Friday, most conventions start at 5pm and if you have places to be, like if you’re running a panel, you really need to plan your time wisely. Especially if you need to pick up your registration badge.

Special tip: If you’re staying at a hotel, try calling the day before or day of to see if you can get an early check in. Most places have a check in time of 3pm so having a few extra hours can really be beneficial to you so you can rest a bit, go get your badge and spend sometime putting on your cosplay.

☆Get to know your location☆
In the little program books you pick up when you go to get your convention badge, you usually get a book that shows the location to specific offices, panel rooms and attraction rooms and halls. This is pretty important if you need to talk to the staff about an issue or if you have an anxiety/panic disorder. Knowing where to go when you need help will just take that bit of stress off when and if something does go wrong. Also it helps you find the room for the panel of the new anime you’ve been really into.

☆ Eat, like seriously☆
You’ve probably heard this a whole bunch of times before, but keeping yourself fed and hydrated is good for everyone. I usually get hangry (hungry/angry) if I haven’t eaten for a while and I can be pretty hard to be around especially if it’s 8pm and I haven’t eaten all day. I also get really severe headaches when I don’t eat so it’s really important to me to have something in my stomach so I can make the most out of my con experience. You might have a medical condition that requires you to take your medicine with food or another reason. It might be hard sometimes pulling yourself away from all the awesome things happening, but try your best to keep your body in decent shape.

Special tip: I’ve tried to make it a personal rule to have one decent meal that weekend. I usually end up eating a bunch of junk food and fast food so having a decent meal with some veggies is doubly helpful.

☆ Bring your absolute essentials with you☆
If your hotel is a bit far away, it’s really essential to bring a small bag or backpack with you to hold some of your essentials. Things like: your phone, wallet, a small pill box for medicines, badge, water and maybe some makeup can really save your butt from constantly having to go back to your hotel. Bring a bag big enough that after putting in your essentials you still have some room for other items, such as merchandise from the dealer’s room. I recommend getting a small backpack or a tote bag with a zipper.

Special tip: If you’re wearing a long wig or have delicate pieces of your cosplay on your neck, torso or shoulder areas, consider using a tote bag since you won’t be slinging it over your shoulders and back.

wanted to tamp around in memory lane, and although all of the clothing parts of the costume are lost to the ages, i still have the horns for Vriska!! 

I didn’t make the makeup as crazy alien as i wanted, and I’ve lost that intimidating sharpness to my face, but i still liked being vriska again, even if just for an hour :^)

anonymous asked:

How do I put this delicately? I'm considering cosplay of a character in a spandex body suit. What do you recommend clothing or gear-wise so as not to be to revealing of my "package"? Serious question, serious answer please.

I am so glad you asked this. I’ve actually  posted about this before and I have no problem re-posting. One of the most popular items to use is a dance belt.

Male dancers use these and they help keep everything in place (You will not have to worry about adjusting as much) and keep everything stream line in that area. They make kinds that are thong like and ones that split in the back and cup the buttocks. However, compression shorts will help too if you don’t want to invest in a dancers belt. 

Thank you for asking this. Undergarments are sometimes a delicate topic but not knowing what option are available can be a worse problem.

finally got around to fixing up and taking pics of my elize cosplay!

the entire thing consists of the dress, underskirt (just the petally bits), bolero-cardigan-shawl thing, boots, and teepo, who was also my bag for when i wore this at anime boston 2 weeks ago. i made the necklaces elize has too, but they were kinda falling apart when we got home  (・ ・;)

this was probably one of the most delicately planned cosplays i’ve done and definitely the most intricate, but also the most rewarding to have finished on time (*^▽^*)
