ME AND FRANZ AT OTAKON
Zuko and Katara are chukips and they were AWESOME for it being pretty much their first costumes! I loved cosplaying in a group, will do again. I wish my hair would’ve been shorter like Suki’s (usually it is when freshly heavily cut) but I didn’t wanna get a wig since I’d already got 2 for that weekend and I’d need lacefront, and would look out of place, was a kinda hurried costume, etc. eh oh well
If you know someone whiter than me please tell me, like oh my gosh my stomach is just a vast expanse of white lol
It was fun and I love my fan! It’s functional and I made it like two nights before we left, so while this was a simpler costume I’m real proud of it.
Also Gangfight Fionna is hipsterfont. I hope one day to join you as Barfight Mikasa.
I just gained a bunch of followers, so greetings and thank you!
Idk if you came from Otacon or cgl but either way, I try to only post original content as I actually don’t scroll tumblr that much so it’s not very often I reblog.
Also sorry for being slow on replying to the scissor blade tutorial questions. For whatever reason I don’t seem to get an email saying I have a new one and it will take me a while to see I have a message once I’m actually on tumblr. I’m replying to them even if you already figured out the answers elsewhere :’D
Oh dear Rei, I’m so sorry I got you scolded by the desk lady!! And then I nervously scuttled away in the same direction you guys were going so I looked super creepy and awkward…
But thanks for the awesome picture <3
I’m so tired, but it was so fun. I’ll be going back next year. Costuming will be on break for a while but I’m thinking…Nausicaa or Avatar Kyoshi since I loved our lil fire nation group lol (if you took my pic please show me!)
Lmao Levi’s price is going to be really high so I doubt anyone will buy it but look at the retarded idea me and my best friend came up with
I wanted to do a mini series of mundane things like getting a speeding ticket, making coffee, etc but no time.
SEE YOU AT OTAKON!! I’ll be Suki (ATLA fire nation outfit) Friday first half, Gou Matsuouka second half, then Nagisa Furukawa most of Saturday and Suki at night, the Gou all day Sunday.
Sorry I haven’t been on much I’ve been working so hard on costumes and art ;_;
Hey everyone, this is the Sun and Moon plush prototype by Squishable. I’m actually the designer of these guys. The design won Open Squish in winter and now it’s on We Squish, a system where so many backers must preorder in order for it to get made.
It needs 26 more backers in 5 days!
I don’t gain anything from it meeting the goal, but many people want it made, so even if you’re uninterested, a signal boost would be awesome.
I'm wondering how do you get your ryuko sword coated all in white w/ the paper mache? Unless you use modge podge for that?
If I understand right, I think the white you’re referring to is because of the type of paper I used with the mâché. It’s newsprint paper I had from an art store, it’s basically cheap newspaper with no print. Blank newspaper. It doesn’t matter if you use actual newspaper or newsprint.
Progress for the art show at Otakon (I think fanart based on historical paintings is allowed?)
"Levi Crossing the Big Ass Trees"
Back again since I finally got around to the paper mache part of my scissor xD After I put a couple layers of it down, you think Elmer's/Wood glue will suffice as a sealant rather than modge podge? Thank you again :)
I really don’t know anything about sealing as the only time I’ve had to do it, I used Modge Podge or this Minwax finishing glaze stuff from Lowes (which I wouldn’t use for a prop). So sorry can’t really help you there ^ ^; I’d look up methods of using diluted glue as a sealer before you act on it.
