A HUGE lil cal cosplaying tutorial!
Welcome to my HUGE HUGE HUGE tutorial on making a Lil Cal cosplay! I only had the shirt for about two months before finally getting around to figuring this shit out, all the while recording my progress with exactly how it was done. And you are reading it! Hopefully this will give some tips and tricks to people who aren’t really sure where to start. Under the cut because this shit is LONG. ...
A huge giant post on how to make an Eridan...
because fuck yeah eridan under the cut since it’s gonna be long as shit [[MORE]] Alright motherfuckers, let’s get started. Eridan has a LOT of shit; wig/extension, horns, makeup, earfins, glasses, scarf, shirt, cape, pants, and shoes. He also has a few props, such as his gun and his wand. A lot of this also goes under most trolls, but he has by far the most clothing on for his...
Quick fix for cracks in horns, if you don't have...
So while I was making my horns for Terezi and Aradia, I noticed there was a lot, and I mean a LOT of cracks. I was a bit short on money so I couldn’t exactly get other things like super glue to fill in the cracks so I went out and bought a bottle of nail glue for about $2. Just put it on the crack and spread it out and once it dries, it will be noticable, but smoothed over and you can...
Neophyte Redglare vs FLARP Terezi
I’ve noticed the two can get a bit mixed up sometimes, so I’ve made a post detailing the differences. Here! It has a bunch of references to both outfits as well. I hope this helps cosplayers of either character! submitted by mintly
New feature on matchwigs.com!
It’s called the bookmarklet, and it’s here to stop you from trying to flip between tabs to see if the wig you need is right for you! Essentially it’s a button for your browser toolbar that creates a pop up window on the match.com website! You upload your picture to this pop up, and now you have your character’s hair right next to the wig you’re thinking of buying! ...
Are you stuck on horns and have a reasonable, yet not expandable budget? Well I found that Paper Magiclay was the best thing I bought throughout my cosplaying career. It is affordable, durable (But not invincible) and really lightweight. It only sticks to itself, it’s easy to cleanup, can be painted with ease and anything can be stuck to it once it’s dry. It dries with the air in about 1-2 hours...
Great Makeup Remover!
For anyone looking for a really great way to get lots of makeup off: have no fear! There’s a makeup remover by Comodynes meant for dry or sensitive skin that gets Ben Nye off like a charm. I only needed one wipe to get makeup off my entire face and neck, and I used another one as an all-over clean but it’s really not necessary. I got mine at Trader Joe’s, but you can find them...

Attaching Horns to your Wig
“I glued my horns on a thin headband and then cut the mesh of my wig enough to poke the horns through the wig. I then sewed the mesh back together again around the base of the horns. This worked for a really stable set-up that looked like the horns were actually attached to my head.” I saw this method in a forum (linked in the quote) but never saw it anywhere else, I think it sounds...
Possible Feferi or Meenah shoes
So after going through this whole blog I realized there are NO refs for Feferi shoes! I managed to come across these in my personal search, for those looking for something more canon accurate! They might also work really well for Meenah or Derse Roxy! submitted by cancerously
This is a really good Rose wig!
This wig is really good if you think Rose is a more dirty blonde than a pale blonde! It’s in good condition and it’s on Amazon if you’re not so okay with ordering on eBay! [me, hehe.] It comes with a wig cap and bobby pins too! Sadly you have to pay shipping, $11.00 in America. But in the end it’s totally worth it! Wig does look different if you’re outside, it looks a...

Want Sollux glasses but don’t know how to make them yourself? You can buy perfectly shaped 3D glasses over here. https://www.etsy.com/listing/103314570/3d-glasses submitted by lilbreakdancer

notfunimation: sgtgarlicslonelyheartsclubblog: homestuckcosplayhelp: That Paradise body paint that was suggested is really good! My friend bought some the other day. It’s a water activated paint, 1.4 or 1.5 oz (I forget) for about $10 at our local costume shop. Some managed to stay on my friend through about two days with no sealant, and regular makeup remover melts it off....

Warhammer of Zillyhoo
I made a Warhammer of Zillyhoo tutorial. There are a few of them out there, but everybody does it differently so it is nice to see different takes on it. I used wood for the head, foam for the swooshy bit, and PVC for the handle. submitted by cantownmayor
In response to Paradise AQ Cake Make-Up suggestion
The Paradise AQ make-up is wonderful. It is water-activated cake make-up and once it dries will not smear, crack or come off unless it gets wet. HOWEVER, if you want to cosplay a troll, it DOES NOT come in the proper shade of grey. The only grey they have is called Storm Cloud which is a bit too dark for the trolls. On the other hand, the same make-up manufacturer (Mehron) also makes a Creme Stick...

I found one on Matchwigs okay I didn’t the person helping me did; it will need a lot of trimming and styling. here. And here is the post if you need any help with dying the purple, I talk about that there too. submitted by highb100dsonly
