Today we are going to be talking about making an Evil Dead-style chainsaw arm. None of this is going to be really exact, because the tutorial I found was pretty lacking in information and I sort of just… winged it. I wish I had taken progress photos, but alas… I will do my very best to…
I DID A THING. If anyone has any questions about this, let me know and I will do my best to clarify. I was stupid and didn’t take progress pictures, but I can try diagrams and stuff to help if you need it!
Reblogging my (first!) cosplay tutorial here because it’s my blog and I want to. :o
If anyone has any questions about it or needs anything clarified, send an ask to my personal and I will do my best to clear up anything that I muddled!
Prepping for Comiccon (I had two props and a costume to finish) and the convention itself took a lot out of me. I’ve also been distracted since my husband’s birthday was yesterday, and mine is coming up Thursday. We’re also making an attempt at house-hunting… So my plate has been really full!
I’m here now though, and I will be queuing up some stuff for you guys.
"Cosplay is getting to be more corrupt as it becomes more mainstream. It's becoming more about looking like a Victoria's Secret model and being bullied if you don't. I, for one, am tired of it. Cosplayers are being told, verbally or otherwise, that they need to look a certain way to do what they love. Cosplay is not a beauty contest. Society has done enough harm to the issue of body image. Lets keep it out of the cosplay community."
HI I am recovering from being sick after Fanime (I had the worst cold imaginable, and I am still all gross from it) as well as dealing with an infected insect bite on my face (I’m swollen ;n; ) but I am gonna put some stuff in the queue because I love you guys.
I don’t have a whole lot of pictures from Fanime but what little I do have I will try to put up on my personal blog, including my own cosplay. I just need to find the adapter for my camera’s memory card.
Hi, love your blog! Just wondering, I have a Con coming up which I would love to attend to since it would be my first, and I would really like to cosplay. However, I don't know what should I cosplay because I started watching anime no longer than 4 o 5 months ago, could you give me some ideas if it´s not too much to ask? I want something fun but easy since I'll be sewing it myself. Thank you so much and hope you have a great day! P.S: Sorry for my english, it's not my mother language.
You know what’s awesome about cosplay? You can dress up as whoever you want!
You didn’t really give me a whole lot to go off of though (like what sort of Anime you like, or even what gender you’d like to cosplay), but let’s see what I can come up with…
- Humanized My Little Pony characters are super easy to do. Most of the items can be thrifted, and wings/ears/accessories can be crafted pretty simply out of clay or something similar. Some online shops even sell pre-styled wigs or wigs that require minimal styling.
- Some Pokemon gijinkas can be fairly simple, and can once again be created from altered thrift store clothing and accessories. For example, this Luxio.
- Depending on your sewing level, you may be able to create a simple school girl/boy uniform such as Madoka’s from Madoka Magica, Miaka’s from Fushigi Yugi, or a boy’s uniform from Ouran High School Host Club.
With such limited information, though, that’s the best I can come up with to start. Good luck! (:
