sometimes a giant turtle swims by too!!!!
im so happy this exists
so I visited it and
I hope you guys notice that because of this post most ppl on this page are from tumblr and I just chatted with them and it’s awesome
Some better pictures of Jewel Dusk, since the sun finally came out!
(And I made a black cover for my ugly dress form!)
The more I look at this dress, the more I love it… and the Dusk colorway was my least favorite of the two! I am super excited to make Jewel Dawn next weekend. Hopefully that one will go a little faster. This one took me about six hours of work.
And yeah, I’m bad at tying waist ties… but I don’t actually have any other dresses with waist ties! I decided to add them here because a lot of people do like waist ties, and if I’m going to make more to sell, I thought it would be a nice addition.
Cosplay Medic Corps Con Survival Guide — Con Dos and Don’ts
Simple things to make your convention experience more enjoyable for you and those around you!DO:
- Make sure you eat at least two “real” meals a day.
- Stay hydrated.
- Ask permission before hugging, touching, or photographing.
- Be careful of peoples cosplays when hugging/being near them.
- Be aware of where your cosplays and props are in relation to you. (Don’t poke someone in the eye!)
- Bathe and sleep! When in doubt, use the 1-2-5 ideology. 1 shower a day, 2 meals a day, and 5 hours of sleep.
- Take breaks. Sit down, talk with people, have lunch. Get off your feet!
- Bring “civilian” clothes, just in case.
- Bring something to keep you busy in long lines. PSP, DS, book, magazine, MP3 player, whatever.
- Check con rules regarding props and cosplay.
- Tip your maid if you are staying at a hotel.
- Respect the word “no.” No means no!
- Seal your makeup. Always always, ALWAYS seal your makeup! (There is a special place in Hell for those cosplayers that don’t seal their makeup and get it everywhere.)
- Have a government issue ID on you at all times. School ID, drivers liscence, passport, military ID, whatever.
- Have fun!DON’T:
- Be overly loud and obnoxious. (Don’t be that fan.)
- Touch cosplayers (or anyone!) inappropriately.
- Be in the way. If someone asks for a picture and you are in a busy thoroughfare, step to the side or ask to relocate to a different location for the picture. By the same token, do not block escalators, elevators, or stairs!
- Accept food/drink from strangers, unless it it prepackaged.
- Throw things at people.
- Leave trash everywhere. Clean up after yourself!
- Turn your phone off.
- Be in character 24/7. We appreciate your commitment, but this can often be off-putting.
- Wear cosplays not suited for the weather. Hypo and hyperthermia (being too cold and being too hot) are the real deal, folks! (If you do do this, drinking plenty of water, and try not to do it for too long!)
- Be loud in the hallways of hotels at three in the morning. (This includes yelling, shouting, blaring music, etc). Or anytime, really. People do sleep at conventions!
- Offer alcohol to anybody whose age you don’t know. Even if they LOOK 21+, many times they aren’t.If you have anything else to add, please drop it in our ask of submit boxes! We’d love to hear it!Happy cosplaying!~Cosplay Medic Corps
Some tips for anyone going to their first con!
(I’ve been seeing ASK’s art going around unsourced/uncredited far too much for comfort. Don’t support that.)
A possibly workable fuck-ton of tree references (per request).
These are some really nice art refs everyone should look at before drawing porn/nudes
I don’t know the original owners of these images
but I thank them very much for these *U*
ATTENTION: If you have an autoplay, if you post any triggering/NSFW content, if you are going on hiatus, or simply need to alert your followers of something, this post is for you.
A lot of people are triggered by sudden noises that they have no idea were coming, or just plain out not being ready for a sound or music. I’ve found a code for your tumblr that you can set to display your own message. I think it’d be really helpful if you have followers afraid of things that will suddenly startle them. You can find the code here. You can also use this for your own alert. Ex: “I am on hiatus!” “This blog contains ____.” This is good for many triggers. Simply copy and paste the code below your <head> and insert your own message into ‘YOUR MESSAGE HERE’. This has been a PSA. Please reblog this so people will know how to make their tumblrs a little safer. It’s not a must, but it’s a nice addition to help your followers feel safer on your blog.
Today we’re straightening wigs. Please notice English is not my native language, so you might run into spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes. I’m really sorry and hope you’re able to understand it anyways. If you run into any kind of problems while reading feel free to drop me an ask.

DO NOT DO THIS.
DO NOT DO THIS.
DO NOT DO THIS.
NO DO NOT FUCKING DO THIS, CRYON HAS A LOT OF FUCKING LEAD IN IT (four times more than lipstick) PLEASE JUST BUY ACTUAL LIPSTICK.
There’s no lead in crayola crayons. Kids eat them.
The ingredients in Crayola Crayons are: paraffin, wax, and pigment. They’re made with the understanding that some kids will eat the damn things, so the company that makes Crayons has been very very careful to use non-toxic materials, even going so far as to use a special edible glue on the paper labels. (cornstarch and water, fyi)
You can eat Crayons, if you really wanted to, but frankly the flavor’s a little bland. They taste like wax. So, yeah. adding oils with a lower solidification temperature like Olive Oil or Grapeseed or Avocado, and mixing in some Shea or Coconut Butter would make a creamy crayon. Which you could use on your skin, if you wanted.
Go wild, use that shit on more than just lips. Use it like theatrical makeup, paint your tits blue if you want. Or use it like paint on the walls, or paper, or canvas. It won’t dry the same way acrylic or watercolor paint will, and will remain ‘workable’ and pliable until the oil looses enough water to solidify, much like, oh, off the top of my head… oil paint.
Modern oil paints are very similar to the recipe above, though usually done with Linseed oil or other inert non-organic oils. Organic oils, as they dry, can discolor, making your carefully chosen color look off. Why are some really old painting slightly yellow? Partly the varnish has yellowed, partly airborne pollutants have stained the surface, and partly the oil in the original paint has shifted color.
BTW, don’t eat Linseed oil, you’ll get the runs something fierce and regret it a lot. And then you get to go to the doctor and explain why your runny poo is brightly colored. But the amount you’d ingest from lipstick made with crayons? Negligible.
Now I really want to make a set of rainbow lipstick to match my rainbow collection of nail polish (which is way more toxic than crayon lipstick, too.)
the way they wrote the instructions was very entertaining to read
This is one of the coolest and most dangerous things I’ve seen made with a wooden clip and matches.
Ahh this path came out just the way I wanted it to! I used the wonderful template found here that is based off of the Valentine’s path found here! I made the corners, center and side pieces since not all of them are found on the Valentine’s path page! The dress and hat/braid QR I am wearing in the picture is found here! And the watering hole is based off of this one here!
