My cosplay wing tutorial is now complete!  I tried to cover as much of my process as possible for making feathered wings. I hope you find this helpful :)

pincushioned:

A lot of people have asked how I got the cross pattern on the skirt and sleeves so uniform.  It was actually very simple: I made a rubber stamp! 

I made a paper template the shape and size of the design I wanted, then traced it onto a hard rubber eraser. I then carefully cut away from around the design with a box cutter, removing half the thickness of the eraser (not all the way through). And voila!

To use the eraser, I found it more effective to paint a thin layer of fabric paint onto the eraser with a brush than to dip it into a tray of paint like you would with an ink stamp.  Painting it on with a brush ensured it wasn’t on too thick and minimized bleed when I transferred it to the fabric.  A few of them at the start didn’t have enough paint, but that’s easy to touch up with a brush afterwards.

Every so often I had to stop and use the box cutter to cut away some of the paint that had built up and dried on the edges/corners of the stamp to make sure that the design remained the same.  But otherwise, that’s it!  This stamp sped up the processes enormously—it only took me about 3 hours to paint the entire skirt and both sleeves, and that includes the time spent making the stamp.  Hope this trick saves some of you some time as well!

Found this online. Great for those who are drafting hoods.
Hoods are one of those finicky things to draft if you never drafted hoods before.
Example Cosplay: Attack on titan capes

I find this more revolutionary than I probably should, given the number of hoods I’ve sewn over the years. But it’s like world is a whole lot clearer now!

YES YES YES 
The shape of hoods are the bane of my sewing existence, thank youuuu~!

Chubby pony centaurs.

Big buff Clydesdale centaurs.

Graceful deer bodied centaurs.

African centaurs with zebra or antelope bodies.

Paranorman, demonstrating how it has more in common with many 80’s kids movies than more modern childrens’ movies. You know, like The Goonies.

I’ve been asked a lot about how I draw hoods, mostly Talon’s hood, so I hope this helps a little? Just a pretty basic thing but hey there ya go

Hoods are pretty cool, they usually have a lot of variety in how they can look (and sometimes people even wear two hoods at once) so just get creative with it and have fun

I really tried making this tutorial (I aM SO HORRIBLE AT MAKING TUTORIAL SO PLEASE DON’T ASK ME TO MAKE ONE FOR YOU LMAO….*turns head*)

I’ve been getting a lot of messages on how to paint w/gouache…so here’s a step by step process on how I paint gouache. You can find what kind of brands I use on my about me page (you just need to scroll down and you’ll find it)

Also for the palette I use. I highly recommend this palette! Why? Because you can save your gouache (or acrylics)…and the special palette paper absorbs the water from the sponge (and it lasts pretty long…like about five weeks?)

If you have any questions, please message me lol……
