So I entered Spicyhorse’s contest. Wish me luck!
Just a few weeks ago, Hindus around the world celebrated the festival of colors, known as Holi. Participants of all ages throw brilliantly colored powders to welcome the coming of springtime.
The Atlantic rounded up a gorgeous set of photos of Holi festivals from across the country of India.
We tend to see these tutorials not in English so here is a fabulous Spandex over Foam Tutorial from Ruffle Butt Cosplay.
While the tutorial is made with Spandex, you can definitely use it with 2-way or 4-way stretch vinyl.
Here are pictures of cosplay armor using this method.

BTW, this is Goldy. He popularized this method and is one of my cosplay idols. He creates workshops for this in Japan and is super nice. I met him in person and really wished I was able to take a picture with him. I hope our paths cross again!
Hey there! Haha I’ll be the FIRST TO ADMIT I really really dislike the grease paint ben nye, since its, well, greasy. Can’t stand the pore-clogging feel of it and it seems to be a bit tacky no matter how well it’s sealed. Snazaroo I haven’t actually tried yet but I’ve heard mixed opinions on it (It’s actually marketed as a kids face painting makeup rather than stage makeup so I’ve never really thought to pick it up ¯\(°_o)/¯)
Mehron is my favorite weapon of choice! I really love the Paradise Pro AQ Cups! (It’s a little pricier than some of the other options out there, but you get a LOT. I’ve had my white for two years and I just hit the bottom of the pan!) You definitely want to apply white in particular with liquiSet rather than water, while I always recommend liquiset for any water-based makeup, white especially is harder to get a nice solid opaque look without skintone showing through so the liquiset really helps get more even coverage! Also a foam applicator is your best friend when applying water based makeup o (◡‿◡✿)
Another optional thing I use is the Starblend powder! I use it as a powder topcoat over my paradise pro after it dries to smooth things out, and keep it in my purse as a just-in-case touchup powder during the day. I also use a darker shade for my contouring, though you could use a grey eyeshadow for that! (With most the Starblend colors you can actually use them on their own without anything else, but I found out
the hard way that the white is a bit too translucent to be used alone. So if you’d rather just get one do the Paradise Pro!)
Hope that helps you out dear! (´ε｀ )♡
gfjgsdkjfjjk BURDS. BURDAL.
a long overdue continuation of this set of drawings. i switched bird!Chell from a peregrine falcon to an orange-breasted falcon and got rid of bird!Wheatley’s glasses because they were stupid. he’s still a blue budgie tho.
and bird!GLaDOS is a secretary bird because omg how can she NOT be have you seen those things??? dang. and then i thought she would be a different kind of bird when she gets usurped and i was just like…. bushtits. how humiliating. and adorable. and brown like potatoes idkkkk
im sorry Valve gomen nasai. umu
So I usually answer these kinds of questions privately, but I’ve been getting them more often lately so I hope you guys don’t mind me answering this publicly! (Names removed for confidentiality) o (◡‿◡✿)
The three main places I would recommend to buy binders from are lesloveboat, underworks, and t-kingdom! I’ve actually been working on a HUGE binder review post the past month full of personal reviews and photos of all the binders Frecklez and I have tried that I’m hoping to have up by next week (I have a lot of binders holy shit), but as a personal recommendation for smaller chest sizes (C and below) I think the sports pullover binder from love boat is FANTASTIC. Comfiest binder I own I have fallen asleep in that thing. A little on the pricey side but well worth it!
I have two like srsly shit is comfy as hell.
For my bustier friends, I’d recommend either the super strength velcro binder from love boat which has a wider coverage, or the tri-top from underworks! (i know for facts the latter can slap down most DDs no problem). The Double Front compression shirt from Underworks is also good for bigger chests as you can fold it over for extra strength! (though that requires some rigging to keep it from rolling back down south)
Hope this was helpful, feel free to shoot me more questions if you have any!
Cockatiel singing the evangelion theme
Still having no luck finding her. Even if you don’t live in the northern Virginia area, signal boosting this would mean a lot to me. I don’t even care that I’m putting my cellphone number on the internet at this point. If anybody has any information on her, text me or leave me a voicemail, I screen my calls.
i know i’ve got some DC/VA area followers so signal boost!! (ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ)ﾟ
How I hang my wigs!
When you start building a giant collection of hair, you’re gonna want an easy way to store it, so I came up with this.
(If your wigs get dusty, use an air-can and spray the dust off. Or, alternatively, you can use the bag the wig came with to slide over the top of the wig.)
My favorite picture from the meet yesterday. Kat threw Cal in the air and hE FREAKING CAUGHT THE WIND AND FLEW LIKE 30 FEET IN THE AIR.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
