TUTORIAL!! Cheap & Easy Wig Stand! 

image

There are long neck mannequins you can buy, but

  • the longest i’ve seen is only 20in (about 50cm)
  • they’re DEFINITELY not sturdy enough! wig heads are light and fall all over the place without the ridiculously long neck, and their bases are never wide enough to stay still properly
  • there are clamps and suctioning stands but you can’t guarantee that you’re always gonna have a surface to stick/clamp it too, especially if you’re working outside (for example bc you’re spray dyeing and you don’t want to do it inside). 
  • THE PRICE. in total, i spent about $20. Some wig heads are cheaper, but for the sturdiness and the height (and the tool that you will definitely reuse if you do any prop work), I think it’s definitely worth it. 
  • it took me 20 minutes to make. seriously. 

Read on for materials, tools, and my process (picture heavy)

PUFF SLEEVE TUTORIAL FOR COSPLAY AND PERIOD DRESS! 
Hey! There’s a lot of disjointed info out there about making puffy sleeves, and I thought it might be helpful to gather (ha) everything I’ve learned/found online in one place. Puff sleeves, more accurately known as “leg o’ mutton sleeves,” were popular between 1890 and 1906, and they’re a pretty common feature in fancy/ball gown costumes. 
Under the readmore: how to draft & sew puff sleeves and tips and tricks for maximum puff! Featuring really shitty pencil-on-Post-It diagrams by me!
Many thanks to all the people whose brains I’ve picked about this, as well as all the Internet resources I’ve trawled to make this possible.

Part II of my silk dyeing and painting process… click below to read my explanation~ (*⌒∇⌒*)ノ

For this project, I went for free-style silk painting. There’s another method where you use a resist called gutta to draw your design lines in. After it dries you can then paint on the inner part of the lines, and the silk dye will not bleed outside them. I will demonstrate this very soon, as there is one more piece for my Terra costume that requires this!

My three part video tutorial is up and live! 

Covering everything you need to know about posing in cosplay and getting better photos at a convention, specifically hall photos! Including:

  • fabric and research
  • attitudes in cosplay
  • the foundation 3/4 pose
  • posing with a group
  • facial expressions
  • posing with props
  • importance of makeup

I’d consider it a HUGE favor if you guys would share this around. So many cosplayers starting out ask me how to pose, and I’d like this to help everyone who feels clueless in front of a camera.

Before you do ANYTHING, it’s important to prime your face! Primers, BB cream, foundation, concealer… anything sticky will do! All that matters is the facepaint and eye-shadow sticking to something!

The fishnets must feel really tight on your face but not tight enough…

Tip Tuesday #85

Don’t forget to pack a reference picture when packing for the con! Reference pictures can be used when getting ready to make sure you’re wearing everything and it’s on properly. They can be used when competing so judges know how accurate you are and to help explain your choices. Then they can be used when packing to go home, to make sure you don’t leave anything behind!

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS. AT LEAST SAVE IT ON YOUR PHONE!
