i'm an illustrator, concept artist, cosplayer, and nerd with a penchant for femininity and love of all things childish. this tumblr mostly consists of art, cute things, fandom stuff, costumes, and feminism.

cosplaying-on-a-budget:

I feel like I’m kind of akward in front of a camera so I’m trying to learn some posing techniques. Elite Cosplay’s video is super helpful if you are someone like me who feels like they one have 1 or 2 “looks” for photos. 

tonight is a night for thinking about ears!

so i have two cosplays coming up that involve pointy ears. i’ve cosplayed tinker bell in the past without ‘em, but this time i really want to step up my game! the problem is that i really don’t feel like getting more than one pair of pointy latex ear tips, so finding one that works as a perfect in between is my goal…. but i’m having trouble finding the right ones. here’s what i’m looking at right now:

  • Wood Elf Ears- these i like a lot, especially for tauriel! i’m not sure if it’s dainty enough to work for tink also? i can also get them prepainted and with liquid latex on this website!
  • Small Elf Ears- very cute, but probably not long enough for either character
  • CottageEmporium Elf Ears- cute, dainty shape! but not quite accurate to either character. maybe this is what in between looks like…?

if anyone has any links or experience with this sort of thing i’m all ears (ha! get it! i’m dumb) so please feel free to tell me! any suggestions??

Due to Popular request I’ve finally got around to making the tutorial for how we made the open front petticoats for Goddess Madoka and Walpurgisnacht. Now, before I get into the details about the making process let me give you a little behind the scenes; When I first set about to making the pair of costumes I had no idea how to do the open front, nor had I seen any tutorials online on how to do this except from making your own cage, which I didn’t have the ability to do in our house. So- The process I used was one based on trial and error; Madoka’s petticoat was the one I made first, and Walpurgis’ was the one I made for the tutorial.

Now! On to the Tutorial! You can find the details under the cut—-

This shit is amazing, it’s fast and it’s fucking strong. You only need very little. No burning, comes off skin like it’s nothing, basically no risk, just remember to get some air.

A 2 ounce bottle is like five bucks and will last you for fucking ever. This shit should be in your cosplay emergency kit. I fucking swear by this for quick fixes and tight spots.

Go forth and costume my friends.

Word. I love hot glue and all, but when I want the job done I use Fabri-tac. ESPECIALLY with foam and armor adhered to clothing.

Hey look. Lady Thor progress.

The dress pattern I chose (mainly because it had the shape at the bottom) is a wedding dress pattern. So the back of the dress was a sheer lace. Instead of going with a solid piece, I decided to go with a red chiffon. A little nervous about it. But here’s hoping I don’t look terrible.

My lovely friend errydayimpufflin is helping with the fit of the bodice tomorrow.

Ah! So close!

PS: Thank you toughtink for such an amazing design. I hope this lives up to your art.

i can’t wait! i’m sure it will look lovely finished! c8

Here’s our interpretation of mid-transformation Marceline (with dat beauuuutiful*cough* eye shoop)! Hee-Hee sculpted the bat-like nose on a facecast with latex-covered cotton balls and paper towels, and then Hopie had her first lesson in applying it!

For a quickie prosthetic, we think it turned out pretty cool!!
