Anonymous asked: Hello, I just made my first set of horns for Nepeta and I need advice. The ones I made are sort of bigger then planned, their 5 inches tall on my head. All the other Nepeta cosplayers horns look smaller. Are they okay if their on the big side. This is my first cosplay and I don't want to mess up too much. Thank you.
Yeah, of course it’s fine. If you’re happy with how they turned out then that’s what counts. If you think you have room for improvement you can always take what you learned making them and just remake them with more knowledge? But if you think it’s alright then it’s alright.
When deciding on an ebay seller based on feedback, someone with 97% feedback out of 10,000 ratings will be more reliable than someone who has 100% and only ten. Make sure to check the negative feedback too just in case it’s for something stupid like “I didn’t like the specific shade of lilac the wig came in.”
Anonymous asked: help i cant find a good Tony Stark wig! got any suggestions? thanks!!
Wigs like this could work. I used the phrase “short brown wig man” to find it on ebay.
Normally when searching for a normal hairstyle in a normal color that you wouldn’t automatically think “supa animez” you can just search for regular wigs instead.
You normally shouldn’t have to pay more than $20 for a regular, non crazy color wig unless you need something really long or if you absolutely need a higher quality.
The one thing you have to check with though are if a seller uses an image that is obviously being used by multiple accounts, don’t just go for the cheapest one, try going for the seller that has the most reviews/positive feedback.
Anonymous asked: Hi, any recommendations on how to do a Phoenix Emma Frost that covers more? I think white tights with some sort of gold leotard, but I want it still to look like her costume.
I don’t know much about X-Men, but aren’t Phoenix and Emma Frost two different characters? But what you’re suggesting sounds about right? She wears white pants at some points and she wears a type of open leotard under them too, so it seems reasonable? Also having the white cape she wears would make you more recognizable. I’d say as long as you stick with her color scheme/things she would normally wear you’d be okay?
Anonymous asked: Hello! I'll be cosplaying a male character from a TV show who has some light stubble, kinda dirty blonde, and I was wondering if you had any tutorials on making stubble or some tips? Thanks a bunch!
You can use a stipple sponge to apply dark makeup like cream based makeup or eyeshadow if you’re wanting a cheaper option.
You can also mix light brown bronzer/color powder with your skin tone powder makeup and apply that.
Even though the guy you wanna cosplay is blonde/has bloned facial hair, normally stubble grows in darker so you can get away with brown. You can’t really magic on yellow blonde stubble just because most skintones are darker and just like with dyeing things, you can only make things darker, not lighter.
