My God Tier John cosplay is almost finished!
I finished the hood now (it wasn't finished in my progress pictures) and modified the shoes which turned out much better than I expected I uploaded some photos if anyone wants to see~

@pltshp - Same! The amount of cosplays I want to do is rather ridiculous compared to the amount of events I can go to and do them at x__x
Ahaha yep XD


Oh wow, the shoes look awesome!

It's the same for me so I'm trying to go to as many events and cons as humanly possible xD


Thank you They turned out a lot better than I expected, ahaha.

I only currently go to the Expos (All of the Expos. All of them.) but I should look into some other ones!

They really did turn out well

I've only starting going to events this year, haha. I've only been to Midlands Expo and Kitacon, and I didn't even cosplay at Midlands :x I've got Ayacon next month and then I'm thinking of going to London Expo in October, even if it is just for the day :'D

Aw, thank you!

Really? It's awesome that you're going to so many in your first year, though!
I used to go to London Expo for only one day, but I have so many friends that I only get to see at London Expo and so many cosplays that I want to do that I now try to go for two days when I go there XD

Ah, this thread died ;__;

I finished my God Tier John cosplay!
I uploaded photos too, if anyone wants to see~

I've gotten a little addicted to cosplay now, haha. Happens to the best of us, I think! I figure that I should do it all whilst I have the money and freedom to do so. And it's awesome that you try to go for as long as possible :3

And ahhh, it looks so great now it's finished!

I think it's impossible not to get addicted ahaha. You do it once or twice to try it out and then the cosplays to do pile doesn't stop from getting taller (Ahaha, I couldn't resist a SB&HJ reference which may have failed because I don't remember the line exactly) and you get addicted.

Thank you!

This is all of the truth.


Aaah, got a half-styled Jade wig next to me on the desk! Currently trying to force it to have a normal fringe, which punky wigs aren't particularly happy about.But the two big backspikes are already done also, I'm hoping that if I'm very lucky, I might get the jacket finished tonight! I'm just about to go and iron part of the collar and then sew it, after that all that remains is cutting the bottom into shape and hemming it, more tonnes of ironing, and adding the button

And then I'm going to my boyfriend's for our Con Air movie night. Gog damn yeah.

-revives thread-

I had a great time at Manchester Expo! There was a really awesome little Homestuck group and I had lots of fun

I've also decided to go ahead with the Dave cosplay since all I need for it is the sunglasses (which shouldn't be hard to find) and to find my black jeans which I actually haven't seen for a year ^^;

I did a test and I seemed to suit Dave much better than expected :o

Also.. I made a YouTube account just for Homestuck cosplay videos as I plan to make some~ I have another main YouTube account but I don't think many of my subscribers there are intersted in Homestuck and I don't want to spam it with silly Homestuck videos. Plus, fresh starts are nice sometimes.

http://www.youtube.com/user/Homestuckk <-- Here it is~
It currently has a Manchester Expo Homestuck video and an incredibly awkward introduction video (I fail at talking on camera ;A; Or just talking in general, actually.. >< ) with my Dave cosplay test and some odd Magibon-like staring video and some photos thrown in there.

Hi there, thread!

Yay for Dave! I look forward to seeing it. And I subscribed to the channel too :3

I got my shirts for Dave and Jade. I was worried I wouldn't be able to bind for Dave too well but it doesn't look that obvious shame about the wig though. It's lovely and would work SO well... if it weren't so long. I can't cut it myself without mutilating it so I either have to find someone willing to help me out or go as a longer-haired Dave. I can't risk ruining a wig. Pffff. And I'm still on the hunt for a skirt for Jade, haha. Ahh well, just over a fortnight left D:


02 Aug 2011 - 21:2365168
Thank you! ^^

Ah, awesome! Your Jade glasses and wig are perfect, I can't wait to see more progress on your cosplays!

I kinda suck with cutting wigs but I'm sure some people could give you some tips for your Dave wig if you're looking to cut it! How much longer is it? DX

Good luck!


03 Aug 2011 - 00:4765192
Thanks!

It's this long D: (unflattering pictures ahoy!) I know it's gonna need a cutting if it's going to be decent but my hands are ridiculously shaky and I don't have any friends who can cut hair/wigs either. I'm lost on what to do with it at the moment ;_;


04 Aug 2011 - 12:1665441
Ah, that is pretty long but it COULD still work if you didn't cut it, it'd probably fit much better if you did cut it though.

I'm not very good at cutting wigs either but I find that even if you don't do a great job with the cutting, it still usually looks alright. I've only ever cut the fringe parts on my wig though so maybe I'm not the best person to ask ^^;
Sorry, good luck!


05 Aug 2011 - 23:0465599
I'm hoping to sell it on the marketplace now and have ordered another one which should, fingers crossed, come in time! If not, I have one which I may be able to use as a back up as a last resort. But I decided that, with the longer wig, it's not worth potentially ruining a gorgeous wig which is perfectly fine as it is. I'm sure someone else could put it to better use!

I also ordered my sunglasses for Dave and have a ton of skirts for Jade in my sights :'D I'm hoping for one that is long but not so long it hides my socks - I'm wearing thigh-high rainbow socks as it's a bit of a headcanon of mine 8D

I bought the material to make Nepeta's hat and tail aswell as a black t-shirt and some green fabric paint for Nepeta and the sunglasses/shades for my Dave cosplay so I'll take some complete Dave cosplay photos in the week if I can find my black jeans.


You're right, that's probably a better idea! I hope the wig arrives in time for you.

Aaa Jade with rainbow socks that's too cute! I think it totally fits her!


I've also managed to get my friend into Homestuck and she loves it now, she says she wants to cosplay as Jade with me! I'm so excited hehehe~

-revives thread again-

Started working on my Nepeta cosplay I've painted the first layer of the Leo symbol onto the t-shirt and I'm currently waiting for it to dry to paint the second, it's looking pretty good already! (I was scared that the paint would soak in and not stand out but it stands out well)
I'll start the hat or tail tomorrow and buy the face paint

I'm really excited about this cosplay and my Eridan cosplay in planning.
Not really sure about how I'm going to do the wig for Eridan yet though.. ><

For the Eridan wig, I would either suggest a spray bottle of watered down PVA glue or a wire frame. I'm too great doing the two myself, but I know for a fact there are tutorials about.

adsgfhjl You're cosplaying Jade? Oh god you'll make an ADORABLE Jade.

I've been tempted in the past, since I've been told I could make a cute Jade. ;w;


28 Aug 2011 - 14:0367899
I went shopping with a friend yesterday and got a bunch of stuff for my Homestuck cosplays, especially Nepeta! I'll make the horns + put the finishing details (nose and eyes) on the hat tonight hopefully aswell as making Eridan's wwand because I can.

We also saw Justin Beiber and sea creatures buckets which were pretty hilarious. And I bought a bucket of chalk. (Oh my, am I really telling a whole thread about my bucket buying habits? How embarrasing!)

I'm planning Eridan for Midlands, May and Manchester. (Hopefully my friend may be cosplaying Fef for Manchester so I'll have a seadweller buddy 8D)

Thank you for the advice! I found the PERFECT purple hair extension which was really nice quality (not really fake plasticy as some coloured extensions seem to be) aswell as being only £4 so I bought it! I'm planning to clip the extension under the wig and bring it up with lots of product as I heard from a really good Eridan that was what they did for their wig *__*

Oh, awesome! Hopefully I'll see you as Eridan at Midlands then, I'm not planning to Homestuck it up but I might be able to wear Dave under my other cosplay, so I can pop out of my cardboard boxes and still be cosplaying xD I'll have to see though, it might be a pain to do that.

Hehe, it'd be cool if you did! Be sure to say hi, I'm kinda really shy and awkward though so sorry about that if you do see me there OTL
Aha, really? That's so cool!


05 Sep 2011 - 23:3368759
Is anybody hereeeeeeee?

Um, I took some Nepeta progress/test photos :33
Progress progress~ Anybody else want to talk about their Homestuck cosplay progress?

Also, I got invited to a Homestuck cosplay meet by One-Winged-Chaos on here so I'm super excited for that as I'll hopefully be able to go!

/prods thread

It's been decided that my friends and I are going to the Saturday of October Expo so I'll probably be cosplaying Dave. My friend's mum doesn't know of my cosplaying (and she wouldn't approve) so it would be easy for me to get away with Dave, since I wear his outfit regularly anyway and I can just pop the wig on in the journey there xD

I'm going to go shopping for a suit jacket and shirts for Four Aces Suited too, soon! And I've ordered the Broken Record shirt and the Atom shirt for Jade too (and a Karkat shirt but not for cosplay, he's just my patron troll) xD

Awesome!! Shame it isn't Sunday though cause that's when I'll be Homestucking. D8

Oooh, I can't wait to see it!
Yay for Homestuck t-shirts! I wear my Dave one all of the time. I kinda want to get an Eridan t-shirt with him being my patron troll and my favourite along with Nepeta but am I the only one who finds the astrological-sign-on-a-tshirt element kinda unwearable? Even if Aquarius is my own sign which makes it a little more wearable, I just wouldn't want anyone trying to strike up a conversation with me about that. :/
I also want the 'car' Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff t-shirt. It glows in the dark, HOW COULD I NOT WANT IT? The stairs one is cool too with stairs being the classic moment in SBaHJ but that car one just seems much more wearable looking and casual to me.

Also, if I do get it, Dave + SBaHJ t-shirt times will happen. Especially with it being red.
