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~!

All these mermaid posts are fantastic and all, but you know what other half human creature I’d like to see?

Centaurs.

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……

this is neato

This needs to be reblogged more, because its a neat trick to lighten a wig, though I’m not sure how well it would work on other tones? Worth trying!

The ‘Open Book Cosplayer’ Project

There is a stigma in the cosplay community that most cosplayers would prefer to hide the tactics used in order to make a particular cosplay. This project is dedicated to raising awareness for those cosplayers who are open to being asked questions and more than willing to help those in need. In short, you are an ‘Open Book’ full of information for all who seek it. 

The badges above represent some of the most general topics of cosplay craftsmanship, including wig work, tailoring or sewing, prop making, and armor making. This does not mean that you claim to be a master of this or that type. It is simply to say you feel confident enough to answer questions on these subjects and in the event you don’t know, you’re good at re-directing them to someone who might know better.

By posting one of these badges, you are openly saying that you are more than welcome to take questions from cosplayers on your craftsmanship tactics and workings. Of course this in turn means that asking cosplayers should also know to credit and thank those that helped them out. 

Click here if you’d like to download these badges for your own use.  Feel free to put them on your page, resize them, put them on backgrounds, ect. Post them however you please.

If you do use these badges, please link back to this post so people can learn more about what an ‘Open Book Cosplayer’ is. 

Also utilize the tag Open Book Cosplayer so people can find cosplayers to ask!

Thank you Vicious! This is brilliant and a very great way to encourage others to not be afraid to ask questions. :D

I am also an open book, followers.  Feel free to pm or email me any questions toward my cosplays, methods, materials, or anything cosplay related really. I’d be more than happy to share my good, bad and best experiences.I will do my best to explain all that I have learned so you can benefit <3 

I will absolutely use this and link back :)

this is a neat idea. obviously if anyone has any questions or wants a tutorial on anything i do, feel free to ask :) I will do my best to answer!
(also all of my current tutorial posts are tagged “tutorial” if you’re looking for them)

We will be adding these to the blog soon!!!

So I’m not sure what to call this

But I figured I’d at least try to impart my knowledge of (hank hill voice) weapons and weapon accessories.

If you like this, tell me, and I might do another tutorial some time!

Adding a “lace front” the quick(ish) and (not really) dirty way. Featuring Levi because I hate this wig’s hairline with a passion.

Details in the captions, but basically I took the extra lace from a cheap eBay lace front wig (because swiss lace is waaaay expensive and I definitely don’t need it by the yard), glued it to the inside of the wig, and started stabbing tufts of extension hair through the lace. I hotglued it totally flat and just kept building. I used the same method to add the purple to my Eridan wig

Hope that helps a little! Now for a trim…

OMGHAH WHAT!? ADDING A LACE FRONT TO A NON LACE FRONT WIG!???

AMAZING!
