post number #1: KIDS



==> luckily for us, the kids are more or less relatively simple!
usually, cosplaying them involves only a cool t-shirt and a pair
of pants or a skirt, unless you're going for the whole hog and
attempting to get a tiger, or two. all of them have about three
or four different outfits, so it's not hard to find a version of the
kid you want to cosplay that you'll like!

KID GENERAL
  • shirts & screen printing: one, two, three.
  • if you can't find freezer paper/can't afford it, new zealand friendly tutorial: here!
  • general applique tutorial: here!
  • wig tutorials here

  • official homestuck shirts from topatoco.
  • official homestuck shirts from what pumpkin. (SHIPPING INFORMATION: it can be expensive buying shirts from here, but i do recommend it. you get a really lovely quality product, and my last batch of merchandise only took ten days to get to my front door! i have a lot of homestuck shirts + one hoodie, and i also recommend throughly scouting out the sizing charts. the small sizes are sometimes even too big for me! make sure you know what size you're getting.)
  • symbols for screen printing: kids | god tiers | jade | jade2 | scratch kids

  • cosplayer's guide to flawless skin with make up!
  • cosplayer's guide to basic male make up!
  • cosplayer's guide to basic female make up!

post number #2: TROLLS GENERAL



==> unluckily for us, there are these things called trolls. and
boy, are they super cool! there's just one tiny little problem:
oh dude, check out those horns! check out dem skins ): they
are kind of grey, and that's tough. don't worry though, we're
gonna get through this. shoooosh.

SO YOU WANT TO BE A TROLL? BASIC GUIDELINE TUTORIAL.

Be sure you know what you're getting into before you make a note to cosplay one of these suckers. You're looking at buying a wig, a lot of make up, potentially tights, material for horns, however you're getting the shirt done be it buying from WP or making it yourself.

Also, because we live in New Zealand, we can't get the stuff Americans get. There aren't gonna be a whole lot of NZfriendly tutorials, because overseas sucks all of the butt ):

JUST AS A GENERAL FYI NOTE ^

HORNS
now, it all depends on how you want these to feel and look and what you want to make them out of. there are so many tutorials for horns all over the internet, i couldn't possibly list them all. there are a million different methods. it all comes down to what you're willing to pay, how much time you're willing to put into them, and how you want them to look and feel when you're done. for example, the idea i had for making my terezi horns fell through the night before armageddon, and i quickly made a pair out of a cereal box, masking tape, and i coloured them in with felt tips. and they looked pretty alright, tyvm (i'm obviously gonna make better ones in the future though).
  • semi realistic troll horn tutorial
  • tutorial using foam part one and part two
  • tutorial using tin foil and paper clay here
  • tutorial using clay here
  • tutorial using that elusive model magic wizardry
    that i'm pretty sure we don't have here, but could possibly
    be recreated using some other kind of clay one, two, three, four!
  • tutorial using wire, tinfoil, model magic here
  • obviously not a tutorial for homestuck horns, but still helpful! here
  • tutorial using tinfoil and masking tape here

  • beautiful tutorial for affixing horns to head here

MAKE-UP
god save me now. okay, make-up HERE WE GO.
  • hanyaan's troll skin tutorial is, in my opinion, the best i have seen. it's easy to understand, she clearly knows what she's doing, and it's really helpful. you'll notice that she uses ben nye cream in her tutorial. when i cosplayed terezi, i used:
  • minifies' aquacolour. it was actually pretty neat. i got grey, which was actually a little too dark, so i would recommend going for light grey if you decide to get this stuff. it stayed on for ages, didn't rub off too much, and i only ever had to retouch it twice.
  • minifies' supracolour has also been recommended! according to lumissne, it doesn't streak as bad as aquacolour, and provides more even coverage!
  • information about cake makeup vs cream here
  • sealants can be found here and also: "you can in fact make setting spray at home. here's the recipe: three parts water to one part glycerin. you can add a wee drop of essential oil (like lavender or chamomile) for a nice scent if you want to. put this in a small bottle with a spray nozzle, ideally one with a fine mist setting." (quoted from lumissne, kendra)

  • if you don't want to put that dumb stuff all over yo fine arms, there is a lovely alternative here, that involves the use of stockings!
  • another stockings tutorial here

  • general contact lenses post here
  • i know that lowkkey has recommended vampfangs for getting teeth from, but you can also grab some from minifies pyro has said that minifies teeth aren't v. good, and don't stay in well.

(if you have tutorials/thoughts to add about anything, post it in here and i'll make sure it gets into this big list of stuff!)

post number #5: HELPFUL WEBSITES



==> and we're getting to the end, finally. that's a lot of
information to take in, isn't it? if there is something you need
answered that i didn't touch upon here, there are plenty of places
where you can go to find help from other homestuck cosplayers!

  • fyeahhomestuckcosplay - good place for looking at other people's cosplays, and seeing how they've rocked the troll look &c.
  • homestuckcosplayhelp - exactly what it says on the tin. ask them anything.
  • fyeahhomestuckcosplayhelp - again, tumblr of similar nature ^
  • sweetartsandhellacrafts - a little more on the fun side than the cosplay side, but still helpful and interesting!
  • the mspa forums are really good, too. it's a whole forum chock-a-block full of homestickers, so don't be afraid to ask for help, or chat with them about cosplay advice!

and that's the end!
if you've got anything to say about what i've listed here, please tell me what you think. if you think there should be more to this masterlist, or if there are bits missings, tutorials that you've found that you think should be in it, pop them into the thread and i'll make sure they get where they need to go. by no means am i the master of homestuck cosplay, so if you know what you're talking about a lot more than i know what i'm talking about, call me out, i'll fix it all up (:

peace out, and happy cosplaying!

Ahhh SO HELPFUL. 8I Thanks for compiling all this, Caddyl!

Just one note, I wouldn't recommend getting teeth from Minifies-- the ones they stock don't set properly and fall out. I speak from experience! =D

Oh, I forgot to mention, later this month I'm going to start making my Davesprite wings-- I'll try and compile a tutorial for people because I'm making the damaged version sooo there could be some interesting stuff happening with my broken one!

Also because this is my third time making feathered wings and so I think I'm finally confident enough to feel like I'm worthy of teaching people this particular skill...

In any case, WATCH OUT FOR IT, EVERYONE.

There's some other shops on the internet that sell those glasses, if you google 'rimless devil sunglasses' or something similar you can find them. Also, Cosplay Optique can make very accurately shaped custom glasses for Terezi, but their pricing's around 80 USD a pair I think.
