How can do other pair of hands? beause i want to cosplay as sardonyx from steven universe and has 4 hands

Hello there!

Sardonyx is a total cutie. Have fun cosplaying her. :]

I have ideas on how to make her arms and attach them fairly securely to your body, but I don’t have ideas on how to make them spin around your waist. If that is something you would like, hopefully someone will post an idea in the comments.

For the arms themselves, you have a few options. Some people use mannequin arms for this purpose, since they are pre-made, rigid, and already look like arms, so all they need is decoration to make them look like the character’s arms. If you want something fairly easy, though a bit heavy and pricey, and unable to be posed, go with this.

If I were doing this, I’d want them to be posable. She’s a very expressive character, so let’s talk posability. For this, you’ll have to craft your own arms, and there are a couple of ways of going about this. Feel free to mix and match arm materials and armature. Also, one advantage of her design is that she wears elbow-length gloves on her second arms, so while the structure underneath would need to be pretty, you only have to make the surface of half the arms look pretty (and the easy half, too, since no fingers!).

One material you can use is stuffed fabric. It would be easy enough – make a long tube with a glove at the end, put your armature in, and stuff it with batting. You can also use a fabric cover over other materials.

Another material you can use for structure is foam. I would recommend something like expanding insulation foam that you can spray over your armature and carve into shape. XPS foam/”pink” insulation foam would also work, but you’d need to make at least two pieces sandwiched together in order to get it thick enough and to get your armature inside. You can either smooth the surface and paint it to look like skin, or you can cover it with fabric. I would recommend filling in the gaps with wood filler/spackle, sanding it smooth, using some type of resin or hardener on it (make sure it’s matte), and painting with a matte or satin paint. For even more realism, you can use liquid latex for a skin-like appearance. This method will be more rigid and give more realistic volume than fabric stuffed with batting.

For the armature, you also have some options. One option is a long piece of wire that goes through the whole arm. Make sure it is thick enough and/or doubled up so that you can get the poses you want while still supporting the piece. This would work well for the hands if you wanted posable fingers, and would work best for the rest of the arm if you used fabric.

You can also create a more realistic arm skeleton structure. You would use a rigid material (such as wooden dowels or small diameter PVC pipe) for the upper arm and forearm, and use some type of joint between. A ball joint would work best, but even a door hinge would work for the elbow if all you wanted was up and down motion. Make sure that this can stay in place where you leave it. You can also use some thick wire between the “bones” (or threaded through PVC pipe) to create bendable joints. You can use small “bones” in the hands, as well, though I would recommend just using wire there instead of trying to recreate a complex hand and wrist skeleton at a hardware store. (With wire for each finger and the thumb, you can easily bend and shape the hands into a few different poses, such as having your extra hands on your hips, or having your arms outward with your palms up.) This method would work well with both stuffed fabric arms and carved foam arms.

You might also be able to saw apart mannequin arms at the elbow and add your own joint, and then re-cover that section.

To attach them, you’ll need a solid understructure. I would create something akin to a corset that goes around your waist underneath your cummerbund and that fits closely, with some structure added (elastic panels, boning, interfacing, whatever you think would be most comfortable and give you the most support). If you need more structure, you can create shoulder straps that are worn underneath the tuxedo, though, much like a very weird bra, you want most of the support to come from the band, not the straps. They would help prevent the rig from slipping or shifting, though, so probably a good idea as a backup support system.

Depending on how you make the arms and if you want them permanently attached or removable, there are a few attachment options. Stuffed fabric can be sewn to the rig, though if they are at all heavy, the ends may droop. Otherwise, make sure that your armature structure goes all the way to the rig, and doesn’t stop at the “shoulder,” so that the arms can be self-supporting. Your best bet for attaching them would be to screw them on with a rigid backing so they have stability. (Also, take a look at this post for inspiration.) You would attach the arms to the understructure and then thread them through holes in the cummerbund.

If you wanted to make the entire midsection spin, I imagine that you would attach the arms to a rigid section that is able to smoothly roll past your actual midsection. This would be rather difficult, especially because torsos aren’t perfectly round, but more oval in shape. I’m sure someone will figure out a way to do it, though.

Good luck! I hope your cosplay turns out well. :]

So I was thinking about Makoto’s swimsuit choices, given this discussion of the practicalities of supporting Thunderrack. and I remembered that we don’t actually see Makoto in a swimsuit as often as the other girls. She hadn’t yet joined the team at the time of the Addams Family episode, and in the S swimsuit episode she spent most of her time in a karate uniform and didn’t go swimming with the other girls down at the hotel pool at all. (That’s also the episode that introduces Ami’s annoying strapless suit with the cock-eyed bow between the boobs, but I liked Usagi’s sunflower one.)

But when we look back at her choices, it seems pretty apparent that comfort and support were a factor. In both the R plesiosaur episode and the Stars one Jet Wolf is watching now, she wears the same style of two-piece, comfortable and athletic, with a sports bra-like top. I think the black parts in the lime green suit are actually elastic/heavy Lycra support panels.

Her swimsuit in the SuperS beach episode doesn’t know whether it wants to be a one-piece or a two-piece, but I notice that it has a halter neck, so that the thinner strap isn’t at risk of sliding off her shoulders, and a relatively broad band across her upper back. I would bet there’s at least a shelf bra built in there, with really sturdy elastic. 

So it looks like Mako’s swimming togs have always been chosen with adequate support in mind!

Plus, I just realised that the two interlocking Gs on the top of her Stars suit are totally a bootleg Gucci logo, with the Gs facing outwards instead of towards each other! For shame, Mako, FOR SHAME.

In My Life (3/4)

mpreg!blaine, a very surprised Kurt, and their journey to parenthood. This is complete and will be posted once a day as I edit. From an anonymous prompt that I expanded on (just a tad.) NC-17

Part One / Part Two

Blaine’s appetite returns with a vengeance a few days into the second trimester. 

“I can’t stop thinking about Lo Mein,” he announces, dropping his satchel and slipping off his shoes. “That’s weird, right? Like all day it just pops into my head, you know what would be good? Lo Mein.” 

Kurt hmmms and pats the couch next to him. Blaine sits propped on the armrest, plops his feet in Kurt’s lap and wiggles his socked toes for Kurt to rub. He looks better, Kurt notices, radiating his usual energy and brilliance, but more so. Like he’s…well. Like he’s glowing, Kurt supposes. 

“I know we don’t have any room in the budget for takeout, but…” Blaine wheedles with a pout.

“I think we can scrounge up a little extra for your Lo Mein needs.”

Blaine cheers and makes the call while Kurt digs into the soft arches of his feet. He places the order, a little breathless, then finally hangs up the phone and drops it onto the table with a groan. “That feels amazing.” 

And that is something Kurt hasn’t heard in a while. With Kurt worrying most the time and Blaine either exhausted or sick or both, intimacy has been scarce.

“So…” Kurt says, one hand drifting up Blaine’s calf, fingers skirting the inside of his thigh. “I see you’re feeling better.”

Tokyo Ghoul:Re chapter 54 thoughts

boy oh boy (tokyo ghoul:re spoilers ahead)

…this new guy is not black kaneki, white kaneki or haise sasaki, and I still can’t determine whether it’s a new personality or a combination of the previous personalities

but man he literally ripped off Kanae’s arm (like how he did to haise), pierced through his eye and proceed to pierce through his body
oh but those are minor details, the main point is he stabbed tsukiyama with a straight face.This whole chapter gives off the feeling that Kaneki remembered everything, and so he recognises tsukiyama, but he did not think about saving him at all 

S A V A G E

last panel, “The last cooperation”, I think it signifies that Haise and Qs’ relationship is coming to an end OR it’s the last time Urie and Shirazu will fight together again, my guess is one of them(most likely Shirazu) will be terribly injured to the point that he can’t fight anymore, or…the worst case scenario, death

EDIT: Noro said “Eto, looks like I’ll be going first.” before Urie sliced him, so he’s most likely dead

Just when he actually said something oh god

So for Midlands MCM on Feb 14th I’m doing Rose Quartz from Steven Universe! Here’s the reference I’m working from, some v.rough design sketches to help work out construction, purchases and some initial progress shots. The skirt especially has a long way to go still!

I’m not so sure about the wig I’ve ordered colour-wise but cost had to factor in, hopefully the gradient isn’t too strong or I can make it more subtle with some extensions added in. Just hoping everything arrives on time!
