A bit different Vriska Serket robot arm tutorial. (repost from my deviantart) Part 1 - The Glove.
Part 2 - The Colors: in my dAAt this half I explain how to sow a glove out of 60 den grey tights. -Again, this is just a messy walkthrough with all the mistakes and everything of how I rolled with this, there’s better ways, I bet. Learn from my mistakes, bro! :’DSo, my robot arm ended up a bit more complicated than the original design. I didn’t want to just color my arm with few stripes for the cosplay and be done with it. I wanted it to look AWESOME. I took influence from GUNNM and FMA etc. and the fab result surprised even me. : D Since people have been so sweet and curious about this, here’s a 2-part tutorial just for you. <3 This method can be used for just any robot arm, not just Vriskas. Or simply just how to make a grey glove for troll cosplay etc, if you don’t want to paint your skin.
(edit) the picture should be ok now, I linked it from DA instead of a new post.

Hey guys :3
If anyone is looking for lipstick for cosplay or anything you should try Kaoir!
It comes in so many different colors and its so vibrant and long lasting. They have the perfect Vriska and Kanaya color&#160;!
Also they DON’T test on animals~!

Oh wow I have been looking for coloured lipstick for  long time that isn’t cheap halloween stuff that runs off your face after 10 minutes. I’m going to have to buy the blue and white to test it out.

Urgh I have been eyeing this for Vriska

Not to mention it’s not Lime Crime and has a good reputation. c:

How to take your wig from gross to great!

This isn’t a new method at all, but instead my results using this tutorial.

While the before shot is pretty terrible photo quality to begin with, you can see the wig is basically a ratty, gross-looking mess.

  • Find a tank or bucket and empty a capful of fabric softener into it (more softener if your wig is longer).
  • Add enough water to submerge the wig, and make sure to flip it inside out before you put it in the water. Swish it around to make sure it’s saturated, and then let it soak for a few days. I left mine is for a little over two days, but I would suggest leaving it in closer for the five days the original tutorial suggests.
  • Lay the wig out on a towel to dry. I didn’t wash out the fabric softener, and when it was damp instead of dripping, I put it on a wig stand.
  • After it’s completely dry, brush through it with a wig brush, or at least a brush with wire teeth. Plastic teeth will create static and no one wants that.
  • If you need a wig brush, try checking out beauty stores. Failing that, you can usually find wire brushes at pet stores, and they work as well as any wig brush.
  • Spray lightly with dry shampoo or sprinkle with talcum powder. Brush your wig again after a few minutes to help disperse the powder and keep your wig from looking chalky. You may experience a small amount of shedding during the brushing process, but it shouldn’t be anything too severe.

And there you have it!

This is on of my absolute favorite tutorials, and I can’t believe I haven’t posted this yet… I’ve used this method hundreds of times (okay, maybe 3-4), but it works flawlessly every time.

This method creates beautiful armor pieces on the cheap, but they still look amazing. This is one of those cosplay-life-changers!

THIS IS THE TUTORIAL THAT TAUGHT ME HOW TO MAKE CRAFT FOAM ARMOR.

Cheap Gray Skin Tutorial
Hey guys. So, I’m planning a cosplay, specifically a troll cosplay, and for that I want gray make-up for my skin. But I’m really cheap with these things, so instead of buying expensive ben nye products and the like, I decided to be a cheap-ass kinda person, and found a replacement.
Basically, buy some cheap liquid foundation, nothing too dark, preferably a light one. Doesn’t matter if it matches your skin tone. The foundation I used for this was $5. 
Next, buy some cheap gray eyeshadow. Dark gray if you want dark gray skin, and light gray if you want light gray skin. Pretty simple, am I right?
Depending on how much skin you’re covering, you may want to buy two, especially if you’re planning on arms and face. I only need to cover some leg and my face in this shit, so I only use one of each.
Now, put a squirt or two of foundation into a container. Now, using a Q-Tip or something of the sort, dig some eyeshadow into the container with the foundation. Mix it. Alternatively, if you want to mix all that you think you’ll need at once, you can do that too with appropriate amounts.
Now, simply take a cotton pad or q-tip or whatever works for you, and simply spread it evenly over your skin. 
Now, mine didn’t rub off unless I was rubbing it persistently, and even then, it only came off slightly on the piece of cloth i was using. But, seal it with baby powder or actual sealer, I’d say better safe than sorry. Don’t want any angry cosplayers chasing you with gray smudges on their outfits.
Note that you shouldn’t put in so much eyeshadow that it matches the colour you want on your arms or face or whatever. The mixture should be a bit lighter and possibly even have a slight tint of the foundation. Once it dries, it will also be slightly darker. I would advise experimenting with little amounts before the actual day where you are doing your cosplay. 
In conclusion, its like ten bucks, leaves little to no smudges but should be sealed anyway, is nice when mixed and ratioed correctly, and is just a real good alternative. Shit can be used for any cosplay even outside the homestuck fandom- want pink skin? Just use pink eyeshadow. Pretty simple.
Thanks, and happy cosplaying.
