Costume Information

Description
Sollux means a lot to me as a character. I relate to him most out of the whole Homestuck cast and I kind of have the biggest crush on him since he embodies my perfect guy but shhh. I just love Sollux.

My Terezi and Rose shirts were both from the official store and I have others, all of which have been just fine. If that helps.

Journal

Sollux redo (Posted 23rd July 2013)

Hoping to improve this! Bought new jeans, new wig and some new individual fangs instead of the full set of teeth I was using before.

Almost complete (Posted 19th May 2012)

The teeth I ordered arrived the other day and I haven't fitted/tried them on yet since they're kinda intimidating me but they look great!! Hopefully they won't be too hard for me to wear.

This cosplay is practically done, I'll get a proper test done tomorrow maybe :D I need to practice my make-up skills...

Close to finish already? (Posted 21st April 2012)

I really didn't realise I was so close to finishing this already, wow! Today I bought the glass stain to paint the glasses with and a headband to put the horns on and realised that I have practically everything except the teeth so that means I can possibly do a proper test tomorrow! I need to do things like fix the wig, though ><

Wig... (Posted 20th April 2012)

Ah ok, so I took the wig out and actually look at it properly the other day and... it's not exactly black?? It appears brownish in some lights and seems to be black with brown highlights/tones in it which is really not what I want ): So I'm really disappointed about that, I'll have to see if i can sharpie it blacker or buy a new wig if I really have to :/

The wig itself... it's my new least favourite, to say the least. The only thing I like about it is that the fringe part is pretty perfect. Aside from that, theres little to no hair to style on it and it seems the hair is uneven on one side or something since it's near impossible to get either side to look the same (though to be honest, I didn't put TOO much effort into attempting to style it so what you see in the photos is... yeah, not good I know)

I'm kinda unhappy with this wig, he's some rubbish photos so you can see what I mean :/

Wig (Posted 17th April 2012)

Wig arrived today, it would really help if I had a wig head to style it on... I may buy one before I start styling it, instead of trying to awkwardly style it on my head like usual and having nowhere decent to put it afterwards.

Jeans and glasses (Posted 6th April 2012)

Got the jeans and base glasses today, I can't actually see out of the base glasses very well (they're reading glasses that are too strong for my eyes...) but I really doubt I can get a fake pair in that style and I probably won't be able to see out of them when I put the red and blue on anyway.

Horns (Posted 25th March 2012)

I won't be making the horns myself this time since my lovely and amazing friend (doctorwhootowl on here/Tumblr) made me some for this cosplay ;u;

I'm really happy with them, I just need to buy a headband to put them on

T-Shirt (Posted 18th March 2012)

Got the official one from the Topatoco store, I was a little worried at first about the colour since the photos on the site aren't very good but it looks WAY better in real life than in photos thankfully and I was worried that it'd be huge but actually it doesn't fit me too badly! :D So I'm really happy with it

. (Posted 2nd March 2012)

I have the official t-shirt ordered, but I'm still trying to decide which wig to get now...

. (Posted 28th February 2012)

I can't wait to get started on this cosplay!!

A friend is kindly making the horns for me this time so I won't have to worry about those and I think I'm going to buy the official t-shirt instead of painting the symbol as originally planned.

I was a little wary of buying the official t-shirt because the stock images provided on the website are suprisingly poor but my friend Ivan bought the t-shirt from their website and it looks fine so I guess I'll go ahead with buying the official one. It's nice to support the comic by buying the official products.
