The staff for my Protoss Wizard costume was the very first project I've used digital LED strips for! I finished it back in 2013 and since then I felt in love with animated light effect and got plenty of questions about them from you! So now I'm finally working on the Animated LED book and hope to publish it in 3 weeks! Stay tuned! :) #propmaking#ledstrip#led#lightup#costume#costume#cosplaytutorial#progress
A TUTORIAL WTF I KNOW RIGHT ✨. This is how to make an Markham Asylum Costume which is quick and easy! It can be a bit tedious though.... The whole costume took me 2 days to make but I did not make the circle skirt in those 2 days. I will try to remember to leave a link for a circle skirt tutorial below ✨
The first part of the outfit to start working on is the top. I just bought and average white T-shirt and then cut a v-neck into it. I fabric glued that down and yay! U got a v neck top. To cover up glue marks I decided to paint in the v shape but the original costume does not do this.
To paint the top USE FABRIC PAINT OMG PLEASE! Acrylic is good for the skirt but for the top u want it to move and not be stiff. Just order some online or buy some at a sewing shop or like the range or something.
When painting, to ensure clean lines use cellotape which stops problems if u go over the line accidentally. Though if you do go over the lines its not to bad as this is a prison uniform.
Paint on the lines alternating, I decided to alternate the back to the front but the original does not. I mostly decided where I wanted my strips on how much paint I had. The sleeves also go down in the line with the pattern but it can get confusing.
When that is done put on the prison number with red fabric paint!
Make or buy a circle skirt, it should be really long and stop at the shins. Circle skirts are relatively easy to make but can be hard to find in that length.
To paint, apply the same technique as the top but on this feel free to use fabric or acrylic paint. The acrylic makes the skirt stiff which keeps the triangle like shape better in my opinion!
The belt piece can be made from black or white cotton and just is tied around the waist. Another way is to cut up a stretchy T-shirt bottom and get a tube which you can wrap around ur self twice.
And I think that is it!

Embroidery time! This week is the split stitch. You will want the tail ends of your floss to be equal, so you'll have two strands the sew with.
1) bury your floss (as shown in the straight stitch tutorial). Make the stitch you bury with your desired stitch length as this will function as your first stitch.
2) push your needle through the center of your stitch, hopefully splitting the two strands of floss.
3) pull your needle through
4) push your needle through the front of the fabric at your desired stitch length
5) once again, push your needle through from the back into the center of the last stitch you made, splitting the floss.
6) pull the needle through and continue in the same manner
7) congratulations!! You have learned the split stitch!
8) play around with stitch length and where you split the stitch! This is a great stitch for borders and lines, or vines if you're doing floral work!
Although the video tutorial that I was working on was deleted. I was able to finish writing the tutorial for Maki's Bokutachi wa Hitotsu no Hikari transformation cosplay. (The link is in my bio) Hopefully it'll be helpful to other Love Live cosplayers.
Really happy with how my three Rey cosplay walkthrough videos turned out! It was fun to try a new style of video, and I learnt how to do a lot of things through the process of making them. If you want to see them, and learn how I made my Rey cosplay (including the staff!), you can do so at youtube.com/quietasmouse; link in bio.
And just to warn you, there may be a few more Rey photos coming to my Instagram in the next few weeks, as I slowly sort through and edit those I took on my photoshoot last week. :) #reycosplay#rey#starwarscosplay#starwars#cosplay#cosplaywalkthrough#cosplaytutorial
☆ Wig detangle ☆
I bet you know the problem >< I searched online for a nice tutorial but somehow none really worked for me - until I had the idea to use my iron! Seriously, no other tools than my iron (with steam) and a regular brush. No cutting at all!
So I thought about sharing this with you, maybe it helpes someone X3
Just check if your wig is heat-resistant beforhands ;) than go and get started ♡
If you have questions I am happy to help, but I am really not an expert in wig-styling u.u
Todoroki Shoto Wig Tutorial
1. You’ll need one white wig of your choice that is heat resistant. I used a Ferrari in Silver from Arda Wigs. You’ll also need a synthetic dye, such as iDye Poly or Rit Dye More, in a red or crimson color as well as a large pot you don’t mind possibly staining.
2. I suggest you do test dyes to determine how long you need to dye your wig. If you don’t want to buy extra fibers, cut off some fibers from an area where it isn’t noticeable.
3. Find the center/middle of the wig and cut it. This is scary but just go slow
4. Prepare your dye bath following the directions of your dye.
5. Once you dye bath is ready, dunk your test fibers for different amounts of time. This will help you pick how long you’ll dye the wig.
6. Time to dunk one of the halves into the dye bath! Once it’s done dyeing, wash the half with cool water and soap to remove any excess dye.
7.Once the wig half is dry, sew the two halves together.
8. You have a whole wig again! Now all you need to do is style your wig.
Hope you guys like this tutorial!
feeling like my first cosplay tutorial ever is coming nicely together :)Because this was my first time doing something for tutorial it took me around 6 hours without taking photos it could been faster xD doing this all made me even more appreciative of tutorial who people have already done xD Because it's goddamn hard to describe something for others to understand :D :D
Hi friends! Sorry for being MIA, I finally got power back!!! The hurricane left us without power for a few days, but now that it's back, I can catch up with work and resume posting! Woo!! SO here's a little tutorial I put together. This is something that I HIGHLY recommend every cosplayer to do, because it really makes a difference. I regret every time I don't do it.
Essentially, you glue the hair down to your face (focusing on the sideburns, hairline, and below the ear).
For this, I use regular glue stick, but you can also use eyelash glue. I haven't tested other adhesives though. My go-to is glue stick, because It's super easy to remove and it doesn't leave a nasty residue on my wig.
Hope this helps you with your future cosplays 💕💕💕 •••
Okay so I got quite a few people requesting a tutorial for Undertaker! I've never done him before, but I love his design so I thought I'd give it a try! AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE: I have mono lids, so my makeup technique may be different from yours. My flatter eye shape is the reason why I can create more of an animated look, but my general rule for every eye shape is to make it look good when your eyes are OPEN, since that's how you'll be taking photos.
1. 💫Put in your contact and start with whichever primer/base you use. It's not really shown here, but I cover my brows before doing eye makeup.
2. 💫Use a dark brown/grey around the outer edge of your eye to give it depth. Usually I'd just plain brown, but Undertaker has a grey/black palette, so I stuck with that. Blend out. Highlight the inner corners of your eye with a light colored shadow.
3. 💫Black eyeliner: line along your top lid so it's barely visible, and create a small wing at the edge and in the corner. This creates a false eye shape that you'll work with in the next step.
4. 💫White eyeliner: Use a white liner or face paint to line around the outside of the black. I use a super thin brush for precision. Then, use white liner on the waterline to make your eye appear larger. Do NOT overdo this, or it will look unnatural!
5. 💫Use black to create a crease, and blend UPWARDS. This is OPTIONAL, but I use the black to line the white liner again. This makes the white more contrasting and noticeable! You can also add more shimmering shadow to your lid between the crease and eyeliner to brighten it up.
6. 💫Contour!! Blend it in ABOVE the crease and out. Then blend it down to your nose to connect with your nose contour. TIP: Start with minimal color, and build up, rather than slapping it on all at once. This will make it easier to blend and more natural-looking! I also drew lashes because I still can't find my bottom lashes.
7. 💫Add lashes and touch up any details you're not satisfied with! For these lashes, I just dipped a brush in white face paint and painted ONLY the tips of a pair of lashes. You're done!
❤TROLL HORN TUTORIAL❤
I hope this helps...!
Ian was the one who originally showed me the tinfoil method! I just added yarn to his!
● I used 1" tape.
● My paints are: Real Red, Orange, and Blackest, all by Crafter's Essentials
● I used approximately 3.5 glue sticks, a yard of masking tape, and 6 sheets of tinfoil while making these.
● The bigger the horns, the more glue for the yarn, the more tinfoil, etc.
● Yes, I made my Aradia/Damara horns with this method.
● Smaller horns also work.
● To make sure the horns stay on the headband, first just glue it, then glue around where they touch and over the headband.
● The yarn is 100% optional, but if you do not use it your masking tape has to be flat and perfect to look alright.
If you have any other questions, feel free to comment and I'll try to help!
You will need: 💋Old legging with stretch and looking wet fabric
💋Old top/bra that opens in front only.
Cut your legging larger that the size of your bra (do in 2 parts) so you can cover properly. Don't forget to add a retangular fabric shape in the front so you can do Quiet ribbon.
Starts covering your bra, then backpiece. Make sure your stretching the fabric into your bra.
Finally, cut the older elastic (neckpiece) and add a new one, covered with your fabric. Finish your bra adding reinforcement where It needs, and make the inside more beauty (if you want, so it looks even better!) And go shoot some soldiers and hug D-D!
