The lighter you are, I think it's easier to pull off more types of blondes. Also, black people can look really good with any kind of blond!
I'm fairly tanned. Lighter than typical Filipino tan (genetics and papaya soaps! xP) but still considered a tanned Asian. lol

In the meantime, I could try imagining my boyfriend as a possible Marshall Lee. xP

Okay. Totally random thought time and I don't want to forget it.
I want to buy the most hideous purple fabrics and construct a truly horrific 80's style poofy prom dress. Pretty much like Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed. And become Lumpy Space Princess.

That'd be awesome. XD

Sweet loli Fionna looks so adorable but I'm far from capable on making loli. <(; w ; <)

Oh god. Whether "canon" or just a troll edit, you gotta admit to how awesomely hilarious the idea is.

I was wondering if someone could help me with a Fionna costume I have to make for my friend! I promised I would make her hat for her, which is pretty simple. I'm just going to use a tutorial for Finn's hat, and change the ears. My problem is, how do I get the ears to stand up? I'm sure they will wnat to be floppy once I am done with it.

Mine went floppy for sure. What I did was add in interfacing and after the hat was completed, I fixed any floppiness by sewing the one side of the ears closer to the middle. My ears are still standing.

Uh, I'm not really sure that I understand what you mean. You put interfacing in the ears? Did that work even with stuffing? Because it doesn't seem like it would. And what do you mean by you sewed part of it closer to the middle?

I love Adventure Time cosplay.
I've gone to a couple of conventions and cosplay events as Fionna. Not many people knew who I was since the episode hadn't aired yet, but it still was fun nonetheless.
I really hope to cosplay as Ice Queen one day. I just love love love her design.
I also got one of my friends to work on a Marshall Lee and am currently trying to get another friend to go with us to conventions and events as Marceline ohoho

I want to complete this cosplay by making Cake and her ruby sword. Has anyone done either of these and have any tips? I would really like to have wiring in Cake's arms, legs, and tail so I can pose her a bit, though it's not necessary, just thought it would be cool.

What I did for my hat (because the ears did go floppy) was put in some wiring and a ton of stuffing into the ears. I also did what StrawberrySiren did and took one side of the ears and sewed it closer to the middle of the hat. However, it can leave a bit of a bunched-up effect on top if you do this after completing the hat. Though that all depends on how you make your hat.

Oh man, that's awesome! I love it!
Do you mind me using this as a reference when I make mine? It's just so lovely.

I remember seeing your Fionna cospay on dA. I really like it.

I've been trying to work on Fionna's sword for a day and a half now using a cheap sword as a base and foam-core and it just isn't really working (most likely because I am new to this and have no idea what I'm doing haha). Do you perhaps have any tips for construction you would be willing to share?

Ah, nevermind. I played around with techniques and things and and finally got something I like. So I don't really need any tips anymore haha It'll be done this week and I shall have it with me this weekend at Anime Destiny. I'm excited!
