Spades Slick - Homestuck





Remaking parts of this costume! I've improved makeup wise, and will be making a silicone scar when the materials arrive. Also I have the blind contact lens, and a better hat. Also hoping to remake the hand and arm.

Worn at Southampton Anime Event @ Marlands Shopping Centre 14th April 2012

I am the worst person when it comes to being in character as Slick, you have no idea. So I apologise in advance for any smiling in the photos x'D I can't pull off a smirk with the eyepatch I currently have.

Just a quick bit about the prosthetic, it's latex and was built almost entirely on my face [I had a layer of dried latex which I attached first to protect my eye) by both myself and a friend who hadn't done something like this before. It was coated in makeup foundation, but I realised too late that it didn't match my skin colour. But still, it was fun to wear, and with a bit of practice I'll be able to make a more realistic one. I'm hoping to get a blind contact lense in the future so I can just make a thin scar going over my eye, which will no doubt be more comfortable.

Wig belongs to Snowflakeofchaos, as does the hat (we swapped for the event).
Suit is bought.
Metal hand is from my Edward Elric cosplay, though I plan on making another one just for Slick.

You've made so much progress with this between the photos, the stubble looks so realistic ;w; You did it, Kess, you climbed this whole mountain!
