Hello Homestuck fandom! I require your assistance! I am collecting information about cosplay among us Hamsteaks, and I would much appreciate you taking this survey. If you haven’t cosplayed, that’s okay too! Take the survey anyways. For the cause of science! Or in this case, statistical science! :D
And please do reblog, I’m trying to get this to reach as many people as I can! Thank you very much!
Hello beautiful people! This is my awesome sexyfriend Sangdi doing some science here, if you have about 30 seconds to spare this survey is blissfully quick!
Hey, your cosplay is super excellent and I was wondering if you'd mind telling me what you made your summoner vest out of, and how you made the pants! (I'm doing him soon, and your summoner is absolutely the best I've seen! Your tutorials are super helpful, thanks so much for those ;3;)
Totally, and thank you so much! (also YAY YOU DID GOD TIER JAKE TOO?!? AAAH YOU LOOK SO ADORABLE! And wow, you’ve been doing a ton of awesome costumes lately, keep up the great work!)
VEST: The vest is black Naugahyde with brown Naugahyde for the symbol; I used the indestructible like… 4mm thick or something kind from the 1970’s ‘cause that’s what my grandpa had lying around. You could also use marine vinyl, boat vinyl, anything sturdy and preferably from the upholstery section of the fabric store. It’ll give you lots of structure but stays warm like crazy.
It was way too warm for Otakon, so I’m probably going to redesign the wings and the vest to put slits in back for ventilation, more updates on that by this summer.
PANTS: Pants are stretchy black jeans! Any black pants from denim to cotton should work, then draw where you want the holes to go in front. From here, you can do at least one of three things:
1: just cut the corners of each squarish hole and try to carefully rip the fabric away,
2: use pinking shears (zigzag scissors) and then run your fingers along each cut edge to get that nice frayed look, or
3: do like I did and cut the lines of each hole messily and squiggly, then hit the edges of each hole with sandpaper or pick at them by hand until you have that nice rough look. (If you need pics or videos of any of this just let me know.)
Now for the red part, I just used one long red strip of fabric for each leg and sewed the top and bottom in place on the inside of each pant. If you’re using tighter pants, just wearing opaque red tights underneath might work, but I had baggy pants and was designing it for as much ventilation as possible. I think most people use fur for the spots, and I’ve also seen ribbon or embroidery.
Just let me know if you need a visual or have any more questions, and super best of luck!
Hi! I just saw your Summoner horns and god, they're awesome :D! So i just wanted to ask you, how did you realize all that wire-system to make them stay safely on your head? Would it be ok if i ask you a picture to see it better? Because i need to figure out how to be sure that they don't fall from the head and they stay in place safely XD thanks a lot! Have a nice day ;D
Thanks so much! Just checking, did you see this diagram and this picture yet?
I pretty much just made a helmet out of wire and made sure it cradled my head closely. I starts the top of my forehead, then wraps back around my nuchal lines (you can google it or just feel for the lumpy overhang on the center back of your head: this is fantastic for anchoring a wire helmet). I was amazed how well it ended up working.
If it’s still unclear, just let me know and I’ll take more pictures (it’s at my other house right now).
You have a delightful day, too!
((I don't know if you've figured it out yet, but I saw the post for the app and it's simply called OuO and it's free.~))
Oh my goodness thanks so much!
Hello there new follower. I hope you have a nice day/afternoon/night/whatever.
Thanks so much, and I wish the same to you!
Oh yeah I do! I go to school in Cleveland.
