Mkay, so I've used Ben Nye paint a couple times now and still have yet to get it sealed as good as other people seem to. I don't know if I put too much on or just haven't figured out a good method to powdering/final seal. I'm planning on switching to PAX for my arms neck area but would like to know some good alternatives to use on my face/prosthetic ears.

I'll be doing my first Homestuck cosplay at Colossalcon this year! I'm super-excited!
I'd like to do Kurloz's Hamlet/Prince outfit from that new update (that I technically haven't gotten to yet, but we'll pretend that's not the case rofl).
So far my method has been:
-Stare at pixel
-Squint
-Zoom in on pixel
-Hmmm
-Fanart
-Um
-Repeat.

Does anyone have suggestions for translating this into an actual costume? xDD

Finally got around to making my Dirk shirt today(guess it counts as a Christmas gift to myself, huh?).

All I really need now are the glasses. Does anyone know a place where I can buy some? I'm fine with making them if I have to but I just kind of want to know my options before I do anything.

Must. Keep. Sewing. 3am dress. I think I've sewn at least 2000 beads on that thing and it's not even half done! D:

Does anyone have a link to material they've used to make sleeves for the trolls? No matter what paint I seems to try I can never seem to get my arms to either look good or be able to actually touch stuff.

I'm using Ben Nye (1 white, 1 grey mix). I've tried other paints but Ben Nye seems to provide the best coverage for me but again when using that on arms/hands I basically can't touch anything. So for anyone that uses the same and has made arm sleeves what did you use/where did you get it.

You NEED to use translucent powder (Or baby powder if you can't) and Final Seal. Use lots of it. So much. Well, not really THAT much, but you need to apply more to your hands to keep the paint off everything.

I just realized that I have quite literally almost everything for a Human Cronus Ampora cosplay. Reason it's the human version is because I can't stand having the makeup/paint/whatever that stuff is on me, especially my face, for long periods of time :/

I only really need hair gel, and maybe a wig? My hair is absurdly long, so it might not work...
