I don't use Ben Nye, but I'd have to say that a few more layers of final seal would help. I mist my makeup until it's damp, wait for it to dry, then repeat 6 or 7 times. Idk maybe I'm overdoing it :x but hands are really difficult to seal properly. Other things you could look into are armsocks or PAX paint for your hands/arms. I use PAX on my hands and that stuff doesn't go ANYWHERE once it sets. Heck, it's even waterproof. (Removal can be a bit of a pain if you don't buy remover... haha. I just use dishsoap and elbow grease.)

I've got more body paint on the way and went ahead and looked into the PAX stuff, so I have that (well the Pros-Aide) on the way as well. Gonna test out both and see what is best.

I read that PAX wasn't something to apply at the con on a few sites though and was wondering how true that was.

So, dudes, I was one of the Mitunas at NYCC. it was awesome. if you need a reference, I was the one with the Cronus constantly.
So, we're going to Promstuck together, and since that's mostly fancystuck, I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how one would go about being Fancystuck!Mituna. I need ideasssss. I've got some clue on what I'm going to do for clothes, but my biggest question is the helmet. should I wear it, or do you think there could be an alternative? I was thinking maybe a yellow tophat with a visor could work, but I need other ideas.

Personally I would keep the helmet. It seems to be a big part of Mituna's design and personality right now. From what I can tell he seems to be attached to his helmet, treating it like a safety blanket in a way.

So yes, I would vote to keep the helmet. I think it would also be pretty cute. Like everyone is dressed up all fancy in their nice clothes and then there is just Mituna and his helmet.

Oh my gog, Schweigie is that your Reo cosplay in your profile picture? yes yes yes *shot*
But, yeah, I think I've decided on wearing the Helmet. It would be humorous, and apperently "kawaii"--quote from my cronus i do not understand. If I feel like it gets in the way of my dancing, i suppose I could just...take it off? Haha

Quick question, that I'm preeeetty sure I didn't see earlier in this thread (though apologies if I missed it): for trolls, do you style the wig first and then attach the horns, or vice versa?

Well, it depends how you're attatching the horns. Are you using a headband? or maybe clips? Then I would style the wig, then attach the horns. If you are using the method which the horns are attached on your head, and you've cut horn holes in the wig, then I would get the horns on and style it.
If you don't know, an idea for doing any kind of styling that is going to eventually have horns is to style, put your horns on, and then restyle for any changes that the horns may do to the wig. Just eyeball it mostly. You may want to get a friend to help you with the back if you are styling it on your head, though...

It IS a bit of a pain; not horrible but it's pretty tricky trying not to make a mess. Small touchups probably wouldn't be too bad though, just bring some pre-mixed in a tupperware container or something like that, a bag for used sponges, and some powder. (Word of warning though; I rushed putting it on before a con and didn't really wait for it to dry before powdering; this made it reaaaaaally peely. Putting it on too thick will make it prone to peeling too; I didn't have much left on my fingertips after the con.)


Also; anyone have tips for fangs with braces by any chance? I used the wax method, which worked pretty well, but they got worn down and pretty blunt-looking by the end of the day lol. I couldn't get the fake-nails method to stay on, and I stayed up till about 3 am trying haha.

Yes, actually! I'm personally a GIANT fan of Scarecrow's fangs. They run about $19 at Halloween stores (lucky that it's October! :D) and have never let me down. Instead of using wax, they make a denture out of plastic that fits to your teeth. The only problem I could see arising is maybe the point of the fang getting a bit worn down if you have braces on your lower teeth? If that's the case, just use a nail file and sand them back into a point. My Tavros just recently refiled hers because they'd gotten dull over time (and occasional misuse) and they look great now! I hope that helps! :D


Also thanks to everyone who offered advice on how to fix my cracked horns! I'm caught up in preparing for Youmacon right now, but I'll try out all of your advice as soon as I get back. You guys are the best!! :D <3

So I've gotten around to making my first pair of horns, for Meulin. I haven't really properly checked yet(they're still drying) but they're probably a bit smaller than I wanted. I'll probably fix that another time. But I'm really excited for it to all be put together!

I really want to cosplay this in the future. Since I'm planning on a haircut, maybe Dave or Rose, or I could dye my hair and do Karkat.

wig help wig help wig help
since now that our headcanon mituna hair is canon, I need to get a dandelion wig...that's nice though, as I wasn't looking forward to wearing my visor to promstuck in my fancystuck mituna cosplay.
I've never bought a wig online before, but I've heard the store I'm using is okay. The shipping is long distance, from China while I'm located in NYC, so I'll be a little longer than a week shipping time. But, anyway, do you guys think this wig will work? My biggest fear is the hair won't cover my eyes properly.

((i would be buying it from ebay, but I don't think cosplay.com likes linking to ebay? I don't know, I just put the picture above.
