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.

Extremis!Pepper - Iron Man 3 (Fanboy Expo ‘14)

I cry about samskinuity's photog skills. Editing by me, and a million and one thank-yous to aracknoid3 for lending me his Iron Man arm.

While going through cosplay photos for that last Anon, I found these photos of when me and shores-of-the-solar-sea met Minibobafett at AX. He’s so precious and adorable! He even had his own Night Fury that I think he named Sparky.

Anonymous:  how do you feel about other people cosplaying the same thing as you?

nokki1:

I love it! I love seeing other people’s interpretations of the same character and their techniques that they used to make the same costume.

Plus when you run into the same character at a con, you can have some real fun XD

I never expect to be the only one cosplaying a certain character and I most certainly don’t expect to be the best version of that character. I just get really excited when I see someone else who enjoys the same character as much as I do!

projectcosplay:

These were made with mirror vinyl (bought from a Chinese seller) over craft foam held together with various glues.

This is the process / tutorial used.

Use the following chart when adhering materials so they stick well:

  • Vinyl front to vinyl front: Super Glue / Krazy Glue
  • Foam to vinyl front: Coat the foam in a very thin layer of hot glue, let it dry, then use Super Glue / Krazy Glue
  • Foam to vinyl backing: Contact Cement / Contact Spray
  • Foam to foam: Hot Glue (or your favorite method…this is my preferred)

Others have used contact cement to hold the foam to the vinyl backing but because contact cement smells like death to me, I prefer the contact spray adhesive instead.

Really love using this method as it’s fast, easy, and light. Luckily, my armor did not have any complex curves because if it did, I would have used Worbla instead.

(front view) CROCHETED Zelda Twilight Princess. my daughter made!!!!  95% of it she stitched all by herself—no pattern.  What’s so great is her many school mates seeing her crocheting at school and in between classes!!! AGAIN, so VERY, VERY PROUD! 

Such awesome work!

Cool!

Raven from Teen Titans. Made the entire costume, that you mostly can’t see because of dramatic cape furl, myself.

Here’s a link back to my blog

DRAGONKHAAAN!

Thanks to the wonderful team at God Save the Queen and FEV Studios for making our costumes out of dreams and magic (and lots of sweat and curse words). We love them, for real.

TIME TO GO SHOOT IN THE WOODS OR SOME CRAP LIKE THAT :D

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

WELL THEN!

this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*
