I’m not?

I wonder, is it the make-up?

Or maybe the costuming?

Am I bad at costuming? (I made both of the below costumes COMPLETELY… In just under two weeks)

Maybe my character choice?

Think i’m bad at crossplay?

Maybe it’s my body?

Or my face?

Golly, i’m so sorry you think i’m a bad cosplayer.

I’m sorry you “don’t get it”.. except that i’m not sorry at all.

Every time I see this post again it has a ton more notes and so many comments under it.. thank you everyone!

Also, anon, if you’re still around.. officially a Master level cosplayer over here, bam!

So here’s some pics of my Man in the Tan Jacket cosplay from Colossal con. Its still sort of a WIP, I need to add the flies all over the jacket still and fix some other small things. 

Oh and I had speakers in the suit case so it had the flies buzzing inside it. Creeped some people out. :D

The pin on my lapel says ‘nightvale fly salesman’ 

this is so disturbing i fucking love it

this is wonderfully creepy holy shit <3

In the meantime, I’m having many much Mass Effect 3 feels. Dear. Freaking. Reapers. SO MANY FEELS.

First time playing it (though I’m aware of the… endings; spoiled to me long ago and I don’t really mind), and my desire to cosplay Legion is out the roof. And maybe Garrus for Taber. Aka I’d really like to die from feels for these characters. 

mass effect 3 cosplay plans for Shadowdrac Legion feels one day I hope

-wild laughter- Wtf I don’t even know what’s going on. -slaps on more spackling to fill in imperfections-

I’m probably going to regret this. I’ve never been able to find something better for this and honestly I’m just winging everything at this point. I should be better at this but APPARENTLY I’M NOT.

Also, Len,  your breastplate is SILLY.

Len death should not have taken thee

The Ultimate DOUBLE TUTORIAL: Foam-Worbla Sword Making!
Read in Hi-Res here: http://fav.me/d7rrjh3Accompanying VIDEO Tutorial: http://youtu.be/USAYoQt0GfQ

Project notes:- Glue used: K.S. Bond (contact adhesive, can be bought at any hardware store)- Hot Glue also works. - The complete foam product is extremely light. - Adding worbla adds some weight, but still very light. - The amount of worbla used for this project was a little more than half a XL sized sheet.- The amount of foam used for this project was less than 1/4 of a foam mat roll from Reject Shop, and about 1/2 a sheet of EVA foam skin from Reverse Garbage.

I’ve actually been doing something, yay.

Been so utterly miserable lately so it was nice to actually feel good enough to finish even a small part of a project. The only belt that’s left is the normal/waist belt, but I screwed up and forgot to cut it out so now I need more fabric (not long enough).

Thanks to azimedes I was able to smooth out the breastplate edges (thanks forever, you wonderful person), but I’m too lazy to take a picture plus no camera likes me enough to do so without a buttload of trouble, so, blah. Later. 

Len death should not have taken thee cosplay progress sort of

I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.

You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.

Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D
It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml

I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication
I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.
Seriously well done. Oh my frick.
