NOTES

  • Remember! This is only an artist’s representation! Being a second hand source, its always good to go look at the original source just in case.
  • I’m using base colors! The actual colors may look different on the official art due to shading and highlights, so like I said, make sure to check the official art!
  • I put in suggestions, but I’m not a cosplayer, so you don’t have to follow them. I’m just putting things that make sense to me.

To the person that asked for this, I’M SO SORRY FOR BEING LATE Q~Q it took me a long while to finish this.

Um not much else to say about this. It’s pretty straight forward I think. Also I am very tired ;w; If anything’s too small or needs clarification, let me know :D

Also I don’t think I can do this too often since school is starting up and I’ll be having really busy years, but hopefully I can still work on them. Thanks everyone :3 Good night!

Ever have trouble finding boots in the right color? Tried spray-painting them and ended up with a dry, cracked mess?A fantastic friend recently advised me to paint leather boots (and any other leather goods) with floral paint. This is a spray paint that is light and flexible enough to use on live flowers. Above are the Poison Ivy boots I painted for a friend, which turned out fantastic.
One thing though: Wear them while you paint them, and maybe stretch your foot around in between coats. I didn’t think of this, and while the paint did not crack at all, it started to split where the boots were stretched from walking. Next time I paint some boots, I’ll let you know if I was able to fix this problem.
The paint I used is called Design Master, and you can find it at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. In the stores near me, Michael’s had a better selection of colors and a slightly better price, but that may not be true everywhere. This color is “Holiday Green.”

Great alternative to spray rubber and plasti-dip or bootcovers, and cheaper than leather paint! Reminder that Michaels and JoAnns both frequently offer 50% off coupons and will match competitor coupons and offers!!

yooo i used this stuff on my ball gown shoes a while back and it worked perfectly. also if you rub pure acetone on your shoe before you paint it, it will rub off the leather/pleather etc sealant and absorb the paint even better, lessening your chances of the paint splitting in some areas. also spraying it with water proof sealant for shoes will help out a great deal as well!


this stuff is AMAZING it only took one coat to evenly color my boots in the perfect color!! It’s a little expensive for paint but it’s way cheaper than finding shoes or other leatherwear in the “perfect” color, and this way you can choose the preferred style and color as needed!!

Do you have any cosplay tips?

// Ahh okay! Prolly gonna repeat a lot of my other posts but I have new followers, so…

  • Wear makeup! Foundation to even skin and eye makeup are the bare minimum to get decent photos. Even if you don’t really wear much or whatever, photos are an asshole when it comes to washing you out or showing uneven skintone, etc. Weeeear makeup.
  • Go to meetups, talk to photographers and other cosplayers, message others on facebook. Getting your foot in the door in the community helps a lot for getting help when you need it.
  • Ask photographers for shoots. You don’t need to be a famous cosplayer for people to want to take pictures of you (often for free). Go ahead and ask; the worst they can tell you is that they can’t.
  • If your skills lie out of the realm of sewing, feel free to pursue other cosplay skills such as wig styling, armor-making, screen printing, etc. and share those with friends who sew. It’s A-ok that you don’t make everything in your costume. Work together!
  • It’s also okay if you buy your entire costume. If you’re in cosplay for the fun > the craft, power to ya! Don’t let anyone shame you for having fun.
  • On the shame thing, don’t let anyone shame you for size, skin-color, gender, etc. Wear whatever the fuck you want, and be fuckin fierce doing it. It’s no one’s job to put you down for doing something you enjoy.
  • What you may lack in elaborate costuming at first, make up with props, character references, etc.
  • Study your character’s poses. Likewise even if your costume is simple, being in character for photos can easily make up for any of that!
  • If you wanna cosplay a character, but their outfit is too complex, feel free to make alternate costumes, incorporating elements of the character in order to be recognizable.

ahhh that’s all I got for now. I hope this helps!
