Costume Information

Description
EVERYONE CAN SHUTUP.

>_>

Okay. Yeah. There's actually a ton of characters i'd love to cosplay from this. ^^; I was stuck between Sollux, Karkat and Tavros, but tbh the choice was pretty much made up for me. I'm still very much contemplating the others for different events though...especially considering how simple these costumes actually are. xD

Tbh I don't think i'll suit him as much as I would some of the others...this was purely based on all my love. ^^;

It's just planned for one of the kitacon nights right now.

EDIT: Now done and stuff. Wasn't too tricky but I learned some things about glass paint and troll horns.

I err...don't think I suit Sollux at all. I thought I looked okay but then photos OH GOD. UGHHH...So I doubt i'll be wearing him again unless my AA wants to do a little shoot together. >< SorrySollux.

it looks really good so far! im not sure what body paint you used, but snazaroo in light grey is what usually looks the best! if you want it to stand out more, then id recommend doing some contouring with grey eyeshadow (i did for terezi because i cant stand my face just being a flat colour).

Thanks everyone! :D

Dahlia: I used supracolour greasepaint. The grey eyeshadow is a great idea though so i'll try that for sure! Thanks. ^^

Face Paint (Posted 1st February 2012)

This is the 2nd lot of face paint I ordered...i'm still unsure about it being too light. x.x It's a really tricky colour. Feedback so far has been okay though so i'm tempted to go with it? Opinions would be good! ~ (Hastily applied so don't mind that. :P)

Glasses (Posted 31st January 2012)

You can’t tell but i’m totally rolling my eyes at you.

I had a bit of hell with these cause they were perfect then I dropped them and PAINT SMUDGED and I had to scrub it all off with hot water and then I was blind but…

IT’S OKAY NOW. Not perfect. But they’ll do. And I can VAGUELY see from them. Bit weird though. O.o

Shoes! (Posted 28th January 2012)

I only really took this photo because I thought they looked so damn swanky.

Easiest thing ever. £1.99 shoes and paint I already had...So cost a total of just under £4. xD I love cheap cosplay items!

Wig (Posted 22nd January 2012)

Blurry photo but I styled the wig...it's a bit crappy tbh...cause its so short and I can't afford another one right now but I think it'll do. ^^

Horns TAKE 2 (Posted 22nd January 2012)

The old ones were irritating me so I remade the big ones and they sit much better on my head now. No idea of the 'staying power' but they shall be tested at kitacon! o.o

Shirt (Posted 17th January 2012)

I made Karkat's at the same time because I plan to cosplay him anyway.

Cheapest thing ever! Shirts from primark and I already had the transfer paper! ^^

Hoooorns (Posted 13th January 2012)

Things making these horns have convinced me:
I should cosplay Karkat instead. |:

The little nubby ones went fine! No issues at all! But the others were hell and I don't know how I feel about them at all now. x.x But tbh I've learned a lot and i'm pretty sure if I made them again they'd be much better...but on the other hand they're only for a Kitacon night so bleeeugh. >_>

Horns! (Posted 12th January 2012)

Horns of the horny variety! (Basically my horns for Sollux xD)

Went much better than I expected! They’re far from perfect but they look better in person. Decided to go with more subtle blendy painting rather than the block colours. I’m pretty happy with them!
