Personally, I got mine from K-mart for like, 20 dollars. I think most department store type places would have them too, otherwise E-Bay? I've seen a few good pairs there

Hey! So, I'm making a Disciple cosplay, and I've reached a problem...I have a dress, but I don't know how to shred the bottom of it. My problem is not the shredding itself, but shredding it so it has that nice thin taper like the bottom of her dress. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
You can get them from most department stores, depending where you live. If there is a Ross store near you you will most likely find a pair between $8-20 (I got mine for cheap from there, at least $10 but the prices really do vary).

So i'm almost done with my Tavrisprite cosplay! I just need the wig and to finish painting the horns and to put them on my headband and I'll be done!
I already have everything else, thankfully. Although, I won't be able to actually finish it till my wig will arrive, which may happen in September, depending on how late I'll be able to order the wig (I don't have enough money for the wig currently.)
But!!! The whole cosplay WILL be done just in time for Aki-con! so anyone going to that Washington convention should see me as Tavrisprite.

Does anyone know where to find a good coat or jacket for Nepeta? Would a military surplus store be a good place to look?

Feferi Cosplay

Hi everybody. I don't know if I've posted around the forums before, but I'm going to be basically making my cosplay debut this year with Feferi Peixes, and I'd like to ask for your opinion/pointers on my costume.

I've made my horns already. Yay, one thing done! I've got materials for the necklaces and bracelets, but as for the bangles I'm not so sure what I should do. I've read that styrofoam might be a good route to go.

I need something explained to me. What exactly do arm socks/leg socks look like? Would they match the tone of the Ben Nye (or other make-up if I decide not to go with that brand)?

I intend to get a plain black one piece swimsuit and have her skirt be like a cover up (with a kind of sheer material), thankfully I have access to a sewing machine and my grandmother was a seamstress, so I have that in order.

I know Crocs are kind of... not fashionable, but I feel like they'd be good for Feferi since they're kind... of water shoes? There used to be these shoes that I called Jellies or something that were always pink and were a type of water shoe, but I don't know if they're sold anymore, or even if they'd be available in my size (my feet are... quite problematic when it comes to fitting shoes so :x)

There's like, a looot more I could gab about but I've made a checklist of what I need to buy and I hope that I'll be able to get a complete costume trial done before I go to the con... o/ It's Otakon, by the way, and I'm a little worried about things shipping in time (if I do indeed order them online).

Um, thank you o/

akanishi: Arm socks are basically really long, skin-tight gloves that you can wear instead of having makeup all over your arms. You can sew them yourself out of tights, or you can buy them - I sewed mine, so I don't exactly know where you'd by them from, but lots of online Homestuck cosplay help sites can point you in the right direction. Whichever one you find, it helps it look more realistic if you glue on fake nails. Since you're using a bathing suit, if you make it out of tights, you can do what I'm doing for the Signless - cut a hole in the crotch and use that as a collar for it, then the gray would cover the shoulders to have them be gray too. It does take a long time to sew them, though, so I don't know how that would compare to buying them. Sorry I wasn't more helpful >.<


I have another question: I'm helping my girlfriend put together a human!Terezi cosplay out of her wardrobe. We've got the cane, glasses, and wig, and for the outfit, we're going with red flats, black jeans, and a teal shirt. However, she has a necklace that she always wears, and it can't be hidden in that shirt. Does anyone have any ideas what she could wear to cover up the necklace that would still look Terezi?

Nepeta's Trench Coat?

Hey all, don't know if this has already been posted here (It probably has >m>) but I'm looking for help with Nepeta's (in)famous trench coat.
Preferably if you know any chain stores in the UK/Ireland that sell if not similar trench coats to hers or if you have any patterns that resemble the coat.
Thanks so much ^///^

I actually ordered some glasses for another cosplay but they turned out to be bigger than I thought it would be. I can't really use them for what I was originaly planning but they would be great for Jade! I think I will cosplay her instead of Rose so I can get some use out of these glasses. I am thinking God Tier or Dead Shuffle.

If anyone was curious: http://i1229.photobucket.com/albums/...n/IMAG1726.jpg

I also have friend who will be making her first home-made cosplay of Aradiabot(that she has asked me to help out with) and we cannot figure out those spheres on her shoulders. Does anyone have any ideas?

For anyone who is interested in Homestuck-related cosplay panels, I've started a blog on tumblr for people to ask/submit questions in order to prepare for panels. I also might allow people to submit video answers to questions in the future, but who knows!

Anyway, if you want to see it, you can find it here. I'm pretty sure this is related to Homestuck cosplay, but if it isn't wanted here, then I apologize.

I'd suggest perhaps following this tutorial for Vriska's robotic arm? (ironic to follow a Vriska tutorial for an Aradiabot...) My friend recently cosplayed Brobot, and we followed that and it worked out relatively well? But in your case, you might want to mold the foam over a bowl or something to get the circular shape that you're looking for? It might not be perfect, and she probably won't be able to raise her arm above her head, but it should look okay for the shoots? You could make a sort of helmet-like shame and then have a strap of velcro or elastic to keep it on. The elastic might get a little uncomfortable after a while, but it might work? Haha, I'm sorry, I'm sort of spit-balling here.

If that doesn't work, though, all I can really suggest is perhaps messaging this Aradiabot and asking her what she did to make hers? Hopefully she'll be willing to help!

I was wondering if anyone here has cosplayed Kanaya? I'm want to make her normal outfit.

I'm trying to think of how I am going to make this skirt from Hell.
I'm thinking of making it like a wrap around type thing? Wow, I'm bad at explaining things.
But there's buttons and stripes and confusing things about this skirt and I'm frightened to attempt at sewing something like that.

I'm almost sure all these questions have been asked but...
Okay, I've decided my Terezi cosplay will be done by the end of the week. I've got my shirt, I'm ready to straighten my hair, I've got shoes, and I'm mending some of the pesky cracks that the Model Magic company needs to figure out. I do have a couple of questions, as this will be my first Homestuck cosplay, and I don't want to look like a complete noob (even though I am).
-So...tips on making red rimless glasses? I thought that maybe I could use a red plastic transparent folder, shape them correctly, and glue them to a pair of smaller glasses with the lens popped out? Does anyone have any fast(er) alternatives?
-On le subject of horns and their fabulous cracks, will the paint cover that up, or should I use super glue to mend it? I don't think using more Model Magic to fill the crack will work...
-I am aware there are laws and stuff against using a blind person cane if you are not, in fact, blind. Can anyone think of anything to add to a blind cane to make it look less...official? (Hard to look official when your skin is grey and wearing orange horns...)

Hey! I've never cosplayed Kanaya, but one of my best friends did, and it wound up looking great! What she did was get a piece of red cloth that we hemmed at the bottom. She wrapped it around herself, and then once she figured out where it would overlap, she sewed off the excess and hemmed that. Then she sewed buttons on to the top layer and painted stripes on that.

If that didn't make sense, here's a very poorly drawn visual aid!

I hope that helps some!! Best of luck!

I've heard that coloring in the lenses with a red sharpie works! Other than that, I've used spray window-tint (available at most craft stores. The brand's Krylon), and it looks good, but the wearer can't really see. Ironic, really, for a Terezi. XD But aside from that, you can buy sheets of acrylic at hardware stores (they use them for window alternatives) and cut that out in the shape that you like. That's how I make Kamina/Bro glasses, anyway!

Paint will NOT cover those cracks. I suggest taking either wood glue, caulk, or Modge Podge (not as effective; it'll take several coats) and using that to fill up the holes. Then paint that white or yellow. If you can still see the divet, do it again. You may have to sand some excess off.

As for the blind cane situation, I've seen a lot of Terezis make Terezi's cane. Since there's a dragon on the top, it's not very easily mistaken as a real cane. For that, you could use model magic (it might be too soft, though, for you to hold on to all day), sculpey (probably pretty heavy) or paperclay (probably the best bet here?) to make the dragon head on the top. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a shot of her cane.

I hope this helps you!
