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 guide, there is probably a specific tag for it!
You might also need to cross-check tags. For example, let’s say I’m doing a PM cosplay (Exile version) and I want tips on how to make her head wrap keep its shape. If there isn’t anything about it under her tag, try checking similar tags; both WV and AR also have shaped head wraps, so try there too! The same goes for ancestors - check the Terezi guide as well as the Redglare tag for Redglare tips!
