Help with Deidara/Tsunade
I'm looking for a couple of things and am having trouble.
Firstly, Tsunade's sandals. I can't find any anywhere that even resemble them. The closest I came to were Hinata's Shippuden ones, but they don't have heels.

Secondly, Deidara's hand mouths. I don't want to draw them on, and I saw that one of the Deidara cosplayers at Amecon had a pair of plastic ones that attached to their hands with elastic.

So, does anyone know of any shops/websites that might help? Thanks in advance!

I think for both you're going to have to make them yourself. Tsunade's shoes can be modified from a pair of shoes which is what my girlfriend did for her Tsunade.

As for the mouths, latex would be the best thing to use ^_^

agreed sjbonnar reccomended liquid latex for the jokers scars for me and it worked wonderfully, it breathes and dosent wear away depending on how gentle you are with it, my suggestion would be very ^^ depending on how thick you want it, and your able to paint it, and its not to expensive ^^ good luck either way

the best way to make prosthetic applications would be to make an alginate and plaster mould of the body part/s you're intending on making the part/s for, then making a cast of it and sculpting whatever alterations you want directly onto the cast/s.

you then make a latex rubber jacket mould and a fibreglass mothermould, into which you make the final applications (not before smearing vaseline or something similar over the mould, or the latex will just bond).

it may seem long winded and potentially expensive, but the end result is amazing, and perfectly tailored to you.

also, before doing anything with latex, remember to be careful of alergies. latex is a nasty substance in it's raw form, and can seriously aggrivate skin.

i -will- eventually get around to doing some workshop/tutorial things on sfx propbuilding and techniques, but i need to finish bri's head first tho! hehe.
