I started doing a tutorial but these things aren’t easy

3-Steps, Close-Enough Cosplay DIY: This is how I made my Mirai Kuriyama from Kyoukai no Kanata in less than 5 hours. Everything I bought was in stores and everyday clothes that I already owned.
- Fabric Glue ($3.99)
- Wig (~$30)
- 1ft navy blue fabric and 1 yard of white fabric ($9.50)
- Gray/Light Blue skirt from Target [link] ($14.99)
- Pink fluffy cardigan from Forever 21 (~$30)
- Navy blue long sleeve shirt from Old Navy.
- Black tights
- Red Sunglasses from DAISO ($1.50)
The total is (~$90). I went the expensive route, but you can thirft the pink cardigan, navy blue long sleeves, gray/light blue skirt, and red sunglasses. But I don’t find it as expensive because some clothing can be as my everyday clothes so I’ll wear it for quite some time rather than wearing something once or a few times a year.
- Make the collar as a separate clothing piece like the one in the photoset. Here’s a video tutorial on how to make the sailor collar: [video link] (If it still doesn’t make sense, I’ll make a separate tutorial on how to make the collar if anyone asks.)
- Pop out the lenses from the red sunglasses.
- Cut out stripes of white fabric, and use fabric glue to stick it to the skirt.
You’re finished, now you can wear it! As for the shoes, you can think of that part. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
If you’re starting out in cosplay, or if you’re a theatre major (ESPECIALLY if you’re a theatre major), Ben Nye makes an excellent student starter kit (the above is creme makeup, but they also have a set for cake makeup).
The set comes in a variety of skin tones and all sets include: three creme foundations (one for old age), creme contour wheel (cheek rouge, lip color and two creme colors), bruise & abrasions wheel, highlight, shadow, white creme color, powder cheek rouge, eyebrow pencil, lip pencil, black pencil, liquid latex, nose & scar wax, hair color, translucent face powder, spirit gum adhesive, spirit gum remover, stage blood (mint flavored!), rouge brush, velour powder puff, sponge applicators, stipple sponge, No. 3 flat brush, No. 7 flat brush, eyebrow/lash comb, and swab applicators.
It is a little pricey (55 dollars from most online retailers), but it’s a good value (especially for the wax, liquid latex, and bruise and abrasion wheel) and it’s easy to build upon this set (an eye shadow palette would go well).
Theatre majors or other college students, check with our department head to see if they can order you a discounted set. Your college/university may also carry the set in their student bookstore.
(All pictures taken from Norcostco. No affiliation or connection to either company or Ben Nye, the set is what Cata used through college and still uses for cosplay.)
A thingy I thought might help someone. And it’s super easy mode.
Dudes. Please. Don’t ever fucking put acrylic paint onto your skin. Even deco paint. Even watercolor, and never oils. Even if you mix it with skin safe paint. Don’t paint with your fingers without gloves. Don’t apply it like makeup. Even a small amount.That is absolutely not what it’s for. Ask any art student who’s had to sit through ten different Hazardous Material lectures.
Seriously. I feel like I’m going to be shouting this from my death bed. Acrylic paints are not intended for use on skin, they can contain anything from Manganese, Cobalt, Cadmium, and even lead. Don’t do it.
My friend has severe nerve damage from constantly painting with his fingers. The Tin-man practically died from this shit. Come onnnn. And now five thousand people are going to do this. Lord.
save a life and reblog so maybe those cosplayers won’t do this.
