Hi, just saw your cosplay for Opal. How did you plan on doing the arms
I’m taking 2 pairs of tights in the color i want and making them into arm socks (example here: here and here , I’m sewing the tights into the shape of a hand, then it looks like skin!)
and i’m making one pair have two left hands and one have two right hands
and then im stuffing the bottom arms (i’m sculpting fake hands out of clay for the ends, to get a more realistic hand pose)
I’m also carving styrafoam into upper and lower arm-like shapes (stuffing is going to be used for the gaps)
then i’m stringing them up to the top ones so they move with my arms!
oomg i uh saw you're going to be Opal at Sakuracon??? I'm going to be Pearl, with my little brother as Lion ;v; I hope I run into you aaaAAA it'll be great to meet some other SU cosplayers
Oh wow that sounds like its going to be super cute! I really hope I run into SU cosplayers in general. I’ve only heard of 3 people including you and your brother who are going to be there. I’m going to be walking around with an amethyst on saturday!
are you going to sakura con? so am i!! omg
oh dude sweet!!! I’ll be there as opal on saturday!
I’m having such a hard time getting a full body shot with this crappy webcam!! I forgot to put on the gems, and the front parts of the wig still need to be styled, but this basically is the finished product!
(I’m not doing four arms for this weekend due to a malfunction sigh)
i look angry because my webcam is terrible
