A wig would look best but if you really don't want to and don't care about looking exact you could use colored hair wax or something like overtone which is like color depositing hair conditioner stuff. I've never used either but I've heard good things about both. The hair wax is temporary and the overtone takes a few washes to get out.

>> No.10266215

>>10265975
Hand sewing would be fine, but will take a long time to do. Consider using hem tape and an iron. You just sandwich the tape between the fabric and iron it down. The tape melts and creates a strong bond that can be washed and worn countless times. Super easy. You could do it in 15-20 minutes

Depends on what the cosplay is of. Typically I try to go for recognizable ones on Halloween and save the obscure stuff for cons. But, if it can be identified as a genre thing like "pirate" or "space cop" then you should be fine either way

Easy mode: sew thread or ribbon loops to the middle of the bow, and to the corners of the bow ends. Bobby pin to the wig. Criss-cross your bobby pins so they don't slip.
Average mode: sew the bow right onto the wig. You can always clip the threads and remove the bow later.
Pro mode: pick up alligator or comb clips from a wig or hair product supplier. Sew or glue the clips to the bow along the bottom edge.

Pair these attachment methods with a fabric stiffening method for best results.

The samurai had many layers:
Juban- white under clothes
Kimono- do I need to explain?
Belt- obi: literally a length of fabric specific to your waist measurement to tie your kimono closed.
Hakama- depending on use it’s either a full pleat “skirt” for court or pants for riding.
Kataginu- exaggerated shoulder overwear
These are all part of the courtiers outfit known as a kamishimo.
Shoes- Geta
Socks- tabi
Do not forget that there are multiple swords and that your hakama are tied a certain way, your kimono folds a certain way, and have a good time. Hopefully this finds you in time for you to look up and acquire all you need.

Just here to comfy post about all the things I’m looking forward to for my favorite season.

I did a light parade earlier in the season, so I get to rewear the sparkly dress I made for that again later this month to a pub crawl. I don’t usually get to wear stuff twice so yay. I’m also going to two gothy events. One I think is more like a bar/club/costume party affair so I’m making a robe a la francaise (Marie Antoinette style) black gown for that, and I’ll wear a raven skull mask. I’ve also got a quick lolita event the day of Halloween. Just shopping and drinks with friends but I’m excited for that too! And last thing, I got invited to a spooky graveyard tour the weekend right after which is supposed to be Victorian era, so I’ll be making an 1880’s bustle dress for that. I’m torn between going for all black and going for cozy fall colors like burnt orange.

Thank you for listening to me ramble. I love Halloween season.

Fabric paint or any paint with a fabric medium. I'm not an expert at weathering, but I've seen someone put stablizer under the edges of their cape, then tear it up, lightly burn the edges, and blackwash the ends. Not sure if that's the effect you're going for, but it looked good on their cape.

I could use some help figuring out what to use to nail down parts of my Saltzpyre costume.

I'll be making the capotain from scratch, I'm thinking of just finding a witch hat and cutting bits off, then sticking a candle and some purity seals. Shouldn't be too hard.

The jacket is another story. I'm not sure where to look or what exactly there is which has the same style. It's like a trench coat but more slim-fitting than most - almost like a woman's coat. In fact that's what I've been looking for so far. Couldn't find the exact style so far, though. The mantle will be tricky to find, especially in the same color as the coat if it's separate. The belts are simple enough.

The gun and rapier should be no problem, though I don't know where to find a flintlock replica. I'm not too picky about the weapons.

The Gloves and boots likewise shouldn't be too big a problem for me, either. That goes for the pants and undershirt as well.

Help me out, lads. I could really use a bit of advice. I don't want to turn to /fa/ on this one since I fear they're going to be intent on killing me financially.

Don't focus on getting an exact replica because you're not going to find it. I'd suggest visiting your local thrift store and altering what you can find. Fitting something loose like a trenchcoat is super easy, but a woman's coat isn't a bad place to start either.

Hey anons. I've been getting most of the cosume for pic related together, sans the top, since it's been the hardest to find. I'm assuming it's like a Mandarin collar jacket/coat; I've seen listings of the whole outfit online, but it's a full set. Should I just drop everything I have right now and order the costume online, or keep searching around for the jacket.?

I agree, I think it's a Mandarin collar button down shirt or jacket. That specific color is a little difficult to find, but there's plenty of white shirts that you could easily dye to fit. Here's some that I found:

Stand collar. Jacket with stand collar.

As for buying the full set vs buying it piecemeal. You probably want to check first how much time you have and whether everything will arrive in time for Halloween (or whatever you want to wear it to).

Second, realise that you're spending time and money on this for practically no reason at all. So, if you find it enjoyable to hunt down the costume pieces, then hunt them down seperately, not because it's a "good" choice (there aren't any "good" choices, they all waste time and money), but because it's fun and you enjoy it. If you find no joy in that, then why bother? Outsource it to the costume-maker and just buy the full set in that case.

Last, realise that most costume-makers cut corners. Most of them fit a little wonky, jackets aren't really jackets (they're usually constructed like shirts rather than an actual jacket), and some details might not be what you think they should be. If this is something that really bothers you, then never order a full costume, make it yourself.

Arda sells some opaque color hair sprays if you're looking for something above Party City quality, otherwise you could mix some oil/cream based facepaint into beard wax and massage it through. Just make sure to coat all of the follicles and then seal with baby powder.

This is going to sound retarded and I apologize if this isn't the place to ask, I know I'm a real goober. I also recognize that the chances of my dumb ass finishing in time for halloween are basically zero, but there's no time like the present.

I want to make a helmet, but haven't ever worked with foams or whatever before. Am I supposed to buy a huge block and just chisel it like I'm fuckin michelangelo? That can't be right, can it?

I agree with the other anon.Look through Facebook and twitter for commissioners to take up your project, get some quotes, and get it done my dude. If you need it in time for Halloween, you'll need to pay the rush fee on top of the other fees, so do be aware that it can run the bill up.

In general, most of this costume looks like it would need to be custom made (ie. commissioned). You might be able to score a few pieces like the scarf/cape, sword, and ninja wear from Halloween stores, but the armor, snakeskin bolero, and cyclops-esque helmet, and boots would need to be custom made. Are you willing to craft them or were you hoping to buy premade?

idk where to post this, but this is my first time working with black eva foam, i standed it with a dremel and heat it up slightly, but when i went to plasti dip it, it just looks rough? and i still see some holes. Is this because I didn't heat seal it enough? i know i use like 4 coats of plasti dip so it's not the primer.

>> No.10274604

>>10274509
pic would have helped but if you're seeing holes yes you didn't heat seal it enough, and or you used a dremel tip too rough.
if you cover it with a few more layers it should go away, just make sure you let them completely dry.

>> No.10274711

>>10274509
I don't use a dremel, I just sand it by hand and I find that if I don't finish by wet sanding with an extra fine sandpaper, I get a rough texture. Also, if you're working with floormats or the like, those holes might just be the minor imperfections you get with lower quality material.

Oh my last braincell went through the window along with my reading comprehension, you right. I was initially thinking that blueberry and beet or raspberry juice (or other fruits with vivid colors) that could be mixed together and added to corn syrup for viscosity but I think those might stain too. They'd probably be less of a hassle to get out than food coloring, but corn syrup is all I got for ya, sorry.
