|Time Taken :||3 months|
|This was really cobbled together... But it turned out surprisingly great! |
I wasn't ever going to cosplay Gamzee, but we had a Homestuck meet coming up and he was the only one I had a passable wig for (my Adult Lambo wig, for those interested). I'd already bought some grey facepaint for Sollux, and I had the white paint for Jack Spicer.
The horns are made from tin foil with masking tape wrapped around, then coated in PVA glue to smooth it off before I painted it with acrylic. I didn't have any superglue, so I attached them to the headband with a crapload of masking tape and PVA glue.
Painted the shirt and trousers with more acrylic paint, so it won't wash off and is nice and bright, instead of sinking into the clothes and fading a bit like fabric paint would have.
It's really, really fun to be Gamzee, and since the time I first wore this, he's developed into probably my favourite character in Homestuck!
