Wow, its watercolor inspiration comes through super clearly. That's incredible!

If you happen to have the time and inclination, I would sure love to hear more details on your technique. =D

My goodness, these are wonderful! Not just the designs (which are perfect and adorable ^_^) but also the craftsmanship. Those are such neat, thin, precise lines.

That mask turned out fantastically! Way to get creative with supplies - you turned them into something that looks quite professional.

Hello there! Any Homestuck fans on the site?
Jade has always been very dear to my heart, she's probably my favorite character. I temporarily dyed my hair black for another character about a month ago, and when it was still dark come Halloween, I decided the fates were telling me it was time to finally whip together a costume of her!



Jade consulting her COLORFUL REMINDERS.


Close ups of the teeth!



Close up of the COLORFUL REMINDERS



This is a modest costume, but I'm still quite tickled with how it turned out. It's interesting figuring out how to cosplay Homestuck characters properly, since their appearance is so heavily simplified - what makes sense in an almost silhouette cartoon figure might not work as well in real life. For Jade, this challenge presented itself with her teeth. She has adorable buck teeth, and I really wanted to get them just right, but I had to be careful not to make them either too subtle or too exaggerated, or they'd lose their charm.

Technical details:
- I drew out the design on freezer paper and stenciled it on the shirt.
- The skirt's a thrift-store find that I Frankensteined to better match hers.
- The teeth were made with those thermoplastic pellets you can find in Halloween stores - you know, the kind used to custom fit vampire fangs to your own teeth. They're my new favorite crafting material. =D If anyone wants details on how I used them, just let me know!

Happy Halloween, folks!

...I want one! I don't care if I'm 23 years old, I want a felt play set of the Harry Potter world. Cheesy

I am bleeding out into a puddle of envy here. This is SO COOL! I hope you realize that you knocked the design and construction of this one right out of the park. ^__^

Good god, this is remarkable! I wouldn't have believed that you could achieve such a stylish silhouette with so much bulky material. You have really achieved something here!

I, uh, think you misunderstood your son's friend. He wanted to give it to ME, not his girlfriend! xD Great job, he's just brimming with personality. I really like how you did his spines, too, it's a great mix between cartoony and realistic.

Waah! This is fantastic. It's so well made, too, I can't believe you casted that skull!

And hm - if you made a whole army of them, that probably means you wouldn't notice if I snuck over and stole one, right? =]
