Stuck on Homestuck Cosplay?
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!

Matryorb Tutorial!

annoyingkitty:

I don’t have many images at all right now so I apologize but let’s see how this goes. All of the crafting credit goes to our Karkat of the group. I just helped with horns and basic stuff and typed this lameass tutorial up. I apologize for any mistakes I overlooked and this post will probably be edited many times after I press that silly post button. Oh well.

[We own nothing but this tutorial. Everything else belongs to Andrew Hussie.]

What you’ll need:

  • Styrofoam ball [We used an 8” ball]
  • Model Magic for horns and covering styrofoam. [I suggest getting a couple packets or the 2 lb. thing since there are a lot of horns.]
  • Knowledge on how to make basic horns
  • Cup or some sort of drying stand
  • Wood filler or spackle to fill cracks in MM [we used wood filler for ours. make sure it doesn’t change size dried.]
  • Sand paper [fine and medium] 
  • Mod Podge [matte finish]
  • Black/grey, red, and yellow acrylic paint. Jade colored paint is optional. Mix the yellow and red for the right colors.
  • Wire [I forget what kind we used [totally helpful] but just make sure it’s sturdy-ish. This is for your stand and/or your horns to be attached to the orb.]
  • Patience and time

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.

Kanaya’s Chainsaw?

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

I don’t know if it’s already been mentioned but when I was messing around with the colors for this brand of lipstick looking for Vriska’s general color, I found one that might work very well for Kanaya. Considering that I found the link to the website on here, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was already on here.

The website is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B0026FPUR0/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=3760911&s=beauty

Mod Note: we recently had a tip that this brand is not that great for makeup, but instead looks great as a prop!
