God Tier Eridan

Homestuck

Clusterfuck 8') but ok

So I wore this at AKon of 2012 and it was the only costume I brought.
IT WAS REALLY RAD.
I was super proud of this costume because at the time it was one of the best ones I had ever done.

There's not much technically complex about this besides the wings (which weren't complex so much as they were a little peculiar to figure out and a little more peculiar to wear and run around in)

The poofy shorts are a combination of elastic and ingenuity. The god tier hood was also a part of that try and fail and try method. The yellow gloves were easy and the wig was easy to style and the horns were easy to create (tho they melted in the car because dangit texas).

The gray gloves that covered my arms I had leftover from when I cosplayed Her Imperious Condescension the year before :)

As for the shirt I dyed a white shirt with black tea for a couple hours. Then I painted the hope symbol onto the chest. (pretty smart AHAHAHAHA)

Finally the wings. At first I did the wire method, hoping they would look the part. However they were ugly as fuck so I scrapped it.
Then I took two huge pieces of cardboard, exacto-knifed the living daylights out of it and produced the loveliness that you now see.
After sewing the fabric tight around the cardboard skeleton I stuck two pieces of elastic through the wings and then again through the shirt so that my wings were on my back!

AND THAT'S THE STORY ABOUT HOW I COSPLAYED GT Eridan.

It was a fun cosplay because I got to be a sass king the whole weekend BUT IT SUCKED. BECAUSE NO ONE OUTSIDE OF HOMESTUCK RESPECTS HOMESTUCK COSPLAY??? SO when I ran around at the con people would like purposefully run into my wings and by the end of it they were so fucked up I trashed em. GOOD TIMES. :')

but yeah
gt eridan yall
