Note about the costume store chainsaw
In response to this post about Kanaya’s chainsaw, I actually own the same chainsaw, and it is indeed very flat.
(I painted it a while ago for her for a last minute prop, but ended up not using it because of this.)
Just a heads-up!

Mod Note: Ah, I thought so!
Potential Kanaya Chainsaw?
I was just casually browsing various websites for costume shops in my area (South Australia) and I chanced across this. I thought that perhaps with some paint it could be made into a Kanaya Chainsaw :)
The shop does ship to the US and many other places, but I don’t know how much shipping would cost.
Hope this helps someone though! :3

Mod Note: Be careful of costume shop chainsaws, a LOT of them are SUPER flat. So you’re looking at what seems to be an awesome chainsaw but really it’s like, two inches thick and you look like you’re carrying a piece of cardboard around. So if someone could maybe find this on another site, or pictures of it used that would be very great in knowing if it’s a good prop!
Rose / Kanaya Lipstick!
I went to Wal-Mart today, and I found this really good black lipstick!
It’s from a brand called Black Radiance and the color is called ”Black Onyx”. It works really well, and I’m sorry that the lighting isn’t all too well.

This is the finished matryorb guys.
It should be noted that we have an area on it for a hand to hold it. Otherwise it’s gonna be awkward to hold. I forgot to mention that.
The end result of that Matryorb tutorial we reblogged a while ago!
Okay i’ll tackle these in order. For the lipstick, there’s really no great way to keep it on because you can’t seal something like that, and even then, licking will make it come off. You could try putting a gloss over it to see if that protects the makeup but to be honest my best advice is to either be conscious of the fact that you have makeup on and don’t lick your lips or carry around a lipstick for touch-ups through the day. As for the wig, check out the options on this thread, they’re the best. For shoes, you could probably use black flats or something otherwise plain because your shoes shouldn’t really shot anyway. And lastly I highly advise against sleeping in Ben Nye. Shit will get EVERYWHERE and if you’re in a hotel they will either a) hate you forever or b) possibly charge you if they suck. Not to mention it’s not healthy for your skin at all.
This is a tutorial for Grell’s chainsaw I found, but with some modifications to the size and design, some Kanaya cosplayer could probably make it work for her! Part one part two
