If you cosplay, you will figure out in the whole process, styling the wig is the very step you can not even try to skip. You can get the costume and props at local or online stores, while you can hardly get a wig which has been styled perfectly for your face. We will constantly provide some wig styling tutorials, today, we are focusing on how to style Final Fantasy Cloud Strife wig for cosplay. (more…)
Unlike the other RWBY team weapons which all include some sort of blade, Yang’s weapon is a pair of gauntlets known as Ember Celica. To cospay such a firecracker-like character, you will need to learn how to make this Dual Ranged Shot Gauntlets.
As always, the first step involves pattern drawing. Draw patterns on papers and trace
them on EVA sheets of 10 mm thickness.
For each gauntlet, we need 6 pieces of EVA patterns to assemble into a whole. In the picture above, pattern 1 is for the base, patern 2 is cartridge belt, pattern 3 is the cover, pattern 4 is muzzle cover sheet, pattern 5 and 6 are elbow pieces.
Pattern 2 should be 5cm longer and wider than pattern 1. (more…)
Welcome Eireenene, a cosplayer and also our new blog writer now. She will contribute many valuable how-tos and cosplay content to our blog.
Cann’t wait to see her articles? let’s take a look at what she is sharing below.
What you will need for creating a hooded cape:
-Some fabric you like, from black to violet, but always dark!
-A chalk pencil.
-Some kind of hood to take the shape from.
-Some scrap of paper.
-A ruler (not pitcured, ops!) Start of with your fabric folded.
We’re doing a half a circle, so we need only 1 fold to do it.
If you fold it 2 times, you will have a whole circle!Take your chalk pencil and mark 15-20 cm starting from the corner of the folded fabric with small dots, forming a quarter of a circle.
Pay attention not to move around the ruler, or you will lose the center!
Makeup is the art on your face, and for cosplay, it is more about changing your face for a specific character from 2 dimensional world. Mostly eye makeup is the key to the whole look, so we will mainly talk about the Mikaela eye part in this tutorial.
To aviod messing or bluring the makeup, it’s better to wear the contacts ahead of time. Here is how the eyes look like without any makeup.To begin with, use concealer to cover all over the eyebrow, apply evenly and tap the edges to make it natural to see. After that, draw on brows according to the character feature. The eyebrow shape has been marked with red lines as the picture below.
Also pay attention to the eyebrow tail trend.Do not make the brow heavily penciled, when done with the shaping, it looks like thisNext, lining eyelids. This is the eyeliner used. Draw from the inside to the outer corner of the eye without any hands tremble, For the unmarked corner, you can either disregard it or draw according to your own face shape.
Besides, close you eye to check, and take care of the details.Done with that, appy some shadow to the outer corner of the eye.Commonly, anime characters have abnormal big eyes and double eyelids. Here we will use brown eyeliner to draw a fold on the eyelid. Again, control your hand from trembling. Then, take out the lipstick, and draw a arc at the lying silkworm area. Spread it evenly with cotton swabs. It turns out surprisingly great, right? Apply some mascara, and your eyes will look brighter. Now we’ve almost finished the eye makeup. what’s left are shaping your nose and put on some lip gloss.Try on the wig and get excited! Do you feel the thirst for blood?
