For Meulin Cosplayers
I’ve just recently been searching online for good bits and pieces for my Meulin cosplay [I plan on doing a Trickster!Meulin based off of kreepykurloz’s design], and stumbled across some things that may interest others as well.
For her shoes I found these lovely cat themed wedges, and they are only $14 (US) without shipping. For the socks, I’ve been looking at these, I’m not sure if they are knee high or thigh highs yet though. But you can get paw prints on the bottom of them in any color, which means you can get them in her blood color. I found a couple white wigs that would work for the trickster design, if anyone is interested as well.
I hope to post progress of that cosplay once I get everything together. I’ll try to post it to one of the homestuck cosplay help blogs out there!

canyouhearthetimelordssing asked: Could you do an Aranea masterpost? It's my forst time going to a big con, and I want to do thigns right.
I just spent the better part of the day creating a masterpost for all characters (minus the ancestors and exiles which I’ve yet to do)
Please consult this from now on before asking a question to check to see if it’s been asked before.
thepageofawkward asked: I recently got the Rufio from Arda wigs for Tavros, it's really nice too.
Thanks for the tip, here’s the link for anyone interested
They have it with the red mohawk for any Rufioh cosplayers
Anonymous asked: which gray face paint is best for cosplayers who had or is having a breakout? ben nye or snazzaro ?
I would suggest using Snazaroo as Ben Nye is oil based and it more likely to clog up your pores and make any breakouts worse whereas Snaz is water-based. Just be sure to thoroughly wash it all off at the end of the day.
8leh asked: I'm going to cosplay as Aranea but I can't find any good completely white contact lenses that aren't super expensive, should I just go for mesh contact lenses?
I would definitely recommend mesh lenses, though I would advise having someone to help you around for the day as they partly block out your vision. Even if you could just put them in before a photoshoot they would look great!
When I cosplayed Vriska a while back, I had a hell of a time finding blue lipstick, and I know a lot of people have the same problem getting the odd colors. So I thought I’d recommend a site!
Their stuff is fantastic. It goes on really smooth and lasts all day. Seriously, I had it on a good 10 hours without reapplication, and it was still strongly there. And again, all the pigments are lip safe!
Thanks for the submission!
Anonymous asked: I'm doing a Dave God Teir cosplay, and I need to figure outcome thing; how do I make his shirt? It's confusing me, a lot. I know how to make the hood, it's the shirt I need help. If you know what I should do, it would mean a lot! Thanks!
The shirt is actually quite simple. Generally, what I’ve seen done (and have done myself) is gotten a short-sleeved red shirt with the symbol painted or transferred on it and then have a long sleeved red shirt to wear underneath. In canon, the long sleeves are bright red and the the short sleeved one is a darker red; though you shouldn’t worry too much if you can’t match it exactly.
wherethemothcry asked: If I was to ever cosplay as any troll, would I have to shave all the body hair from where ever I'm painting or would the paint magically hide it for me?
Well obviously it wont all just disappear but the paint will cover the majority of hair, depending on how thick you layer it on. You’re not obligated to shave any of your hair at all!
Though if it’s facial hair you’re referring to then having a shave beforehand would probably be recommended. Unless you want your troll to have a beard.

Anonymous asked: How in the world would i go about styling a dirk/trickster dirk wig??
this tutorial is extremely helpful in styling any kind of dirk wig
I found some really cool gill-like ears for the sea-dwellers
You can find them at http://www.aradanicostumes.com/image/cache/data/elf_ears/earsea_web-500x500.jpg
They are pretty cheap, all you need is your grey make up and spirit gum.
Thanks to my friend ooddles for showing this to me!
These look great, thank you for the submission!
Just to add on, you would need something to cover up the line where the gill meets your actual ear. Latex is suggested to blend it in or, as shown in the photo, a ring could be used for a cosplay like Meenah
Anonymous asked: Hi, I'm trying to make a costume for the first time (Nepeta), and I've been reading another very helpful blog, but I worry a lot and their ask box is closed so some advice would be great. In regards to horns made with Model Magic, is a core (foil/foam/etc) necessary or can I just use a solid thing of the clay? Thank you!
It’s not necessary but I would definitely advise it to make your horns just that bit lighter. If it would be easier for you, and you can be sure that it wont make your horns too heavy for your method of attachment, then you can just use clay on it’s own.
