Something Helpful Regarding Tavros' GT Outfit...
Ok, so I was looking through a bunch (well, not a bunch, but a good handful that’s been posted online) of fanart and a screenshot and bluh of Tav’s GT outfit and I notice that the long sleeve part underneath the short sleeve shirt and the undewear part are the same color or something. So, I came to a conclusion that, for those who are planning on cosplaying GT Tav, go buy a leotard....
Okay, I didn’t really see this in the con etiquette tag. If I missed something about it, I’m sorry about this! You need to remember a lot of people dislike physical contact and do not want surprise hugs. You need permission first. Keep glomping in glomping circles, and do not stick signs on people that say “Glomp Me” this is actually not aloud at most conventions. And...
Some possible lipstick colors for Trolls...
Just came across this AWESOME company, and am planning on ordering from them A.S.A.P., though I haven’t yet. They have a ton of different weird lipstick colors, but this lip gloss and these lipsticks seem to be the best for fitting troll colors! submitted by bastetsbard
I recently purchased a pair of Butterfly Microfiber tights in light grey to use as armsocks. I’m quite pleased with the results. The tights themselves appear to be just a hair darker than the ones you can get at welovecolors, and were only $11 after shipping. The tights themselves were quite thick and soft and I was able to make the arm socks with little difficulty. Shipping only took...
Homemade Shipping Wall!
I was messing around on Stumbleupon.com when it brought me to a blog. The post on their blog was about homemade colored chalk boards. I thought it would be the purrfect idea for a shipping wall for nepeta!! You could paint it red to match the color of hers!! submitted by lexiecami
i have no idea if anyone’s already suggested this (probably?), but arda has a really quality tutorial for adding a widow’s peak to a wig. thought it might be helpful for an equius cosplayer. .w. submitted by thedragongirl88
Where to contour and where to highlight.
WHERE TO HIGHLIGHT/CONTOUR. In some makeup tutorials it tells you to buy the following: Two things of Ben Nye Creme Colour Cake Foundation in white. One in Steel Gray. One in plain Gray. Then it tells you to mix one of the whites and the plain gray together to make the troll colour, then use the other white and steel gray for highlighting/contorting, but it doesn’t say where to...
Warning about Milanoo.
Milanoo is a really bad site to order from! Trust me!!! There’s an 80% chance you’ll get something WAAAAY different than what you ordered or it would arrive very damaged. Just a heads up. submitted by 50shadesofjohnkat Mod Note: Just a reminder that Milanoo is terrible and don’t use it! We have a post here with all of the known aliases Milanoo uses (and the 100%...
Just a little note.
In reference to this post. One of the wigs mentioned there isn’t actually from that ebay provider, it’s actually from fm-anime. It would actually be cheaper, and safer to go with the original sellers of the product. I recognised it because that’s where I usually buy my wigs, so I would recommend it. The wigs are relatively inexpensive, and very high quality. submitted...
Fef's bathing suit
I’m also using that same bathing suit talked about here. And while I haven’t gotten to arm socks or anything, I’ve painted on Fef’s sign. It was a HUGE pain though, let me tell you. Thankfully Fef’s design is pretty easy. I half used a stencil. Meaning, that the stencil was there, but only for a quick outline. The hard part was the ribbing. I suggest using a wide...
Lord English's Head
I found a pretty cool skull mask that a few people have used for their Lord English cosplays here. It’s not green yet, and you may have to use special latex paints to color it, but the shape is incredibly accurate.

Sollux glasses tutorial
So this is a quick little tutorial on how to make some cheap sollux glasses. I just went out to my local optomatrist and picked out some cheap frames, and asked if i could have lenses without perscription (plastic/costume glasses). Went to a dollar stop and picked up a window painting kit, after a few thin layers the finished product looked like this: The frames costed about 18$ Can. which is not...
Master Tag List
How to use this tag list: Always use the character tag or the most specific tag. For example, if I’m going to cosplay god tier John, I would look under “John” instead of “god tier”. If I need help with Aradia’s dead-eye contacts, I would look under “contacts” instead of “aradia”, etc. If it is not under the character tag or master...
more Vriska god tier pants!! (and others)
I was searching around online and found that jcpenny’s had some orange pants (they also come in other colors like blue, red, grey, maroon, and teal), so I went in and took a look. They’re super comfy, the fabric it stretchy and soft. the only thing is up by the pockets, there’s some weird like already-worn-looking-thing where they creased the fabric to make it look,...
(I don’t know if you already have this, BUT) I saw a lot of people asking about the cancer pendant and they’re selling the REAL DEAL on whatpumpkin.com right now. They give you a choice of buying a large one or small one, but I bought the large one and it’s the perfect size. submitted by everykissbeginswithgay
Lush has a new line called “Emotional Brilliance”. While it is about $23, it can be used for lipstick, eyeliner and mascara and has all troll colours. It can be found here (for the US, anyways.) submitted by gingies
Homestuck shirts + Nepeta wig and Tail

I also found two amazing Nepeta wigs: this and this. The second one looks more canon. I also happened to find this lovely tail, too. I bought it and it arrived quickly. I am very pleased with it! ...
Alternative Terezi Glasses
Since the Terezi glasses most cosplayers have been using are being discontinued, I’d like to suggest the following glasses as a not perfect, but acceptable and cheap alternative. These are called “Red vampire gothic sunglasses, cat-eye shape”. They can be bought http://www.restyle.pl/product-eng-521-Red-vampire-gothic-sunglasses-cat-eyes-shape.html for 4,50€ / 5,45$.

In Regards to a Previous Post
Someone mentioned that this swimsuit was a good choice for Feferi cosplayers who go with the bathing suit type of cosplay. Personally, it’s what I do when cosplaying her, and I’ve used that exact bathing suit but found a number of problems with it. First of all, it’s low cut in the back. That would mean either having to either put make up on your back (which uses quite a bit of...
Making Troll horns with Polymer Clay
Hi, I’ve noticed that the usual method for making horns is through the use of Model Magic and other forms of air dry clay, but I feel like I’ve found a cheaper and sturdier variant in Polymer Clay, which can be found in large quantities, even pre-colored, at various craft stores. My tutorial is...
Terezi Glasses using 3D glasses
So I’ve been poking around at some ideas since the glasses that are often used by Terezi cosplayers is being discontinued and I think I found a decent solution if you’re unable to get your hands on some. Everything you’ll need is in bold This is my new pair of glasses that I made using this method. This shows shows my old glasses on the left next to the new ones on the right. The...
Hi! I’m not sure if anyone’s already submitted something about this, but I found a one piece swimsuit that would probably work really well for anyone wanting that type of Feferi cosplay. submitted by likeastudgod

They are lends-less, but I find it prevents glare in pictures and they are made of strong plastic (I stepped on them and they didn’t even break!!!) My only complaint is that they took a month to be shipped but they are coming from china… but for 2.89 USD you can’t complain too much. Here is the ebay link. submitted by britthintiru

Vriska Godtier Pants
If you want an alternative to scrub pants ones I got that worked really nicely were Soffe Football capris! They were really comfy and the color was ALMOST right, they’re a bit brighter then the canon color. WATCH the sizing though, I ordered the junior large because I was right between sizes and they were HUGE. I tried washing them to shrink them and eventually had to have a friend modify...

I was exploring through some videos on IndyMogul’s channel when I found a crude jetpack tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7XvW8UCP8o&feature=channel&list=UL It’s not very detailed but using the basic tutorial and some cardboard, you could make John’s rocket pack or Terezi’s rocket wings. submitted by tomyo
This is a really good place to get wings, and they do commissions! I have tried one of these sets on and I guarantee you that you will not even feel the things on your back. If you’re doing Davesprite though, it might be a good idea to dye the pack orange, or ask if they could for you. 75 bucks is a bit on the expensive side, but these last for years. submitted by galvanizedmobster

Great Roxy Skirt
I found this awesome Roxy skirt on Amazon. It’s 95% cotton and 5% spandex, so it’s a very nice, tight-fitting material (and also the perfect length). Because it stretches, it is a great fit for really anyone, with sizes available in small, medium, and large. It’s a complete steal at $8. For those who prefer pink, it also comes in this soft pink color. submitted by sigi-stardust

idk if Dirks need this or what
But I found dark, transparent clipboards at Walmart for about $3 for back to school. I’ve been looking everywhere for something cheap that I could cut into a pair of Dirk glasses, but I wasn’t having any luck, so I went to S and W’s Plastics here in California. Well, lo and behold, 2 weeks after the convention I spot these. ah well. There are plenty of Plastic places out...

My friend and I happened to spot this hat at Claire’s today: http://www.claires.com/store/goods/Teens/cat970026/Hats/p41045/Floppy-Zebra-Straw-Hat/ The hat looks almost perfect for Snowman (though you may want to starch it or something, it probably needs to be a bit stiffer). The scarf is glued on, but barely and not well, so it’s really easily removed. Not 100% perfect, but for $5 I...

Quick, Easy Binding
If you don’t have enough time or money to purchase a chest binder, control shirts from Walmart or something work GREAT. I used one for a photoshoot since I don’t have a binder yet and it took me from a 32 C/D to completely flat. Basically, I just cut it into two pieces and layered them over one another, and voila! Toters perf. I’m not sure if there is anything wrong with...
