Description
I chose this costume because Meenah is the biggest bamf and literally my favourite character in Homestuck (apart from Vriska, Rose and Roxy). Y---EAH.
The hardest part was probably the facepaint, but the hardest part to make would be a tossup between the horns and the 2x3dent - the horns because they're still really shoddily attached and the 2x3dent because of the drama involved in 'painting' it. The easiest part was definitely the shirt.

Oh wow, I'll keep an eye out at MCM for this :3 I love Meenah.
Also I noticed you were buying pitchforks in order to make her trident. I'd suggest going over the weapons rules for MCM in order to make sure you're careful with that [pitchforks are sharp!].
They often advise you keep a weapon strapped to you in some way, and in a way that it can't be "drawn" easily. It'd be terrible if security got angry at you over it!

Huzzah :)

I will, though because the sticks screw and unscrew together if I need to I'll just take it apartt and keep it in my bag (that's how I'm transporting it). I'll make sure to check first though :>

Thank you :> It looks a bit dumb in these photos because my skin is too messy at the moment to wear the facepaint but hopefully it'll come out better when I'm grey :P

Journal

WIP2 (Posted 17th March 2013)

Featuring:

Horns, rough wig (fringe will be restyled before con, was just getting lengths etc right), braids, shoes, full face makeup and 2x3dent.

The facepaint still looks too dark to me, it’s annoying bc it looks lighter in the pot + dries dark on my skin :c Any tips or feedback on the facepaint would be adored (also please ignore sloppy lips and how I couldn’t be arsed to do my neck and the lack of piercings and wow this sucks)

(also I have sensitive eyes so after Expo I’ll just photoshop my bottom lids because that is as close as I get to my eyes with the paint)

Will get a full picture of the cosplay up soon-ish, I hope.
