|I know what you may be thinking - "Another Homestuck cosplay!?", I will probably try to make my next cosplay after this a non-Homestuck cosplay. They're just so addictive and having so many Homestuck cosplaying friends doesn't help XD|
Eridan is my favourite character along with Nepeta and also my patron troll, I can't wait to cosplay him! <3
At first I was going to do the capeless version due to my hatred of capes but I've now decided that I will probably do the cape version and even with Ahab's Crosshairs if I can manage it!!
I will be doing this definitely for Midlands and Manchester Expo. (Especially as I'll [as long as plans don't change] have Kapow as Sollux and my other friend with no account here as Feferi for Manchester which will be awwesome!! *__*)
Possibly for May London Expo.

Okay, so I FINALLY improved this to a standard I'm happy with!!
. (Posted 2nd March 2012)
I'm not sure why I changed this to complete, it isn't complete at all ahaha. I've changed it back to in progress now.
I need to fix the cape which I did make but unfortunately failed when I actually got it to Expo since the part that stands up around the neck decided it didn't want to stand up anymore... and the glue that I used to put the new horns (which are now painted) onto the headband didn't work either so I had to use my old horns for Expo.
I also plan on making Ahabs Crosshairs too for when I re-wear this at Manchester Expo.

All I really need for this now is the scarf, cape and Ahab's Crosshairs if I can manage to make that! (Wish me luck... x__x I've never done much with props before ahaha, only simple things)
I wore this to a meet at the weekend and it was really fun even if my cosplay wasn't complete! :D I just made a temporary scarf to wear until I get a better one and went as capeless Eridan. (I also forgot to wear my horns most of the time so I'm only wearing them in one photo >< .. oh well)
Wig and horns (Posted 8th November 2011)
Wow, the base wig I ordered arrived already! I ordered it this day last week at night and it was only free postage from Hong Kong so I'm really suprised it arrived so quickly! :0 I haven't tried it on yet, I'm going to wait for the t-shirt to arrive too and then try it on to see how progress is going maybe.
I sanded down the horns and they're pretty good looking now in my opinion :D I'm going to paint them tonight.
Glasses + other stuff (Posted 6th November 2011)
Apparently plain black normal hipster glasses are a thing which are really hard to find now (they only seem to sell coloured/fancy/oddly shaped ones now) but I finally managed to find a pair which are perfect aside from them having some stupid decorate tape off but that thankfully came off easily and cleanly without leaving any marks which I was fearing it would.
I also got some spray fabric paint to do the stripes on his trousers and decided that I'm going to use my God Tier John jeans for his since I'm impatient and they're the same ones that I wanted to get (I looked yesterday and they're still selling them but not in my size at the moment) but I WILL REPLACE THEM WHEN I CAN.
I also bought sandpaper and filler on Saturday so I'm going to try and fix up my horns so hopefully they'll be all nice and smooth when I'm finished with them :D
T-shirt (Posted 1st November 2011)
I decided not to paint the sign onto the t-shirt myself this time and instead have it printed so that the colour would be exactly correct and it would look much better and neater.
Here's a photo of the t-shirt as it is being printed~ I'm hoping this will look good and be worth it since it did cost more than expected.
Many thanks to Kapow for making the design for me to use and Vk-Melon for telling me about this printing site!! :D
Base wig (Posted 1st November 2011)
I bought this wig to use as the base wig, I'm hoping this will work well, I have an idea of how I'm going to style it but I hope it works well enough!
Scarf (Posted 21st September 2011)
My amazing bestest friend Laura (who doesn't have an account here.. yet) has offered to make me Eridan's scarf as a Chirstmas present since she's learning to knit :D
I'm so lucky to have such lovely friends! :D
wwand (Posted 30th August 2011)
I made Eridan's wand and I'm pretty happy with it even if the clay was much harder to use than expected and there are some cracks, hopefully I can fix those.
. (Posted 29th August 2011)
Sort of started early on this~
I found a purple hair extension to use for the wig which was really nice quality as well as only being £4, I also decided to make the wand already and have some stuff already for it.
I found some fins that fit over your ears so I'm planning to buy those for this cosplay and paint over them with the grey face/body paint.. hopefully that should work..
