So I’m almost at 200 followers, and I’m wondering if I should do a giveaway? I don’t have a lot of time at the moment but I’d like to do something for you all.
I’d like to know what fandoms you all like, and/or if I should have candy in it or something. <3
I know not a lot of you talk to me or like my posts… but I still think a giveaway would be fun to do…
This was my first time using dye and oh man was it a learning experience! There really isn’t a reason why I used all Rit dyes, they were there and I grabbed them.
Here’s some advice when dyeing fabric! (or please don’t make the same mistakes I did)
1) ADD SOME SALT FOR COTTON FABRICS. This helps the dye take. There is some salt in the product but add some more to be safe. Salt man.
2) WEAR LONG GLOVES. I have plenty of short plastic gloves, but when I needed to dunk the fabric down sometimes I got the liquid in them. Invest in some classic kitchen gloves.
3) MIX DYE THOROUGHLY. If you’re using liquid dye you should be okay with just dumping the dye right in the bath, but mix powder dye separately! After watching a tutorial I thought the powder would mix fine in the bath, but for some odd reason I got some orange/red stains on random parts of my fabric. With the purple I got reds and blues (primary’s for purple) that showed up. So please, mix the powder dye separately!
4)HAVE PLENTY OF SPACE TO WORK. Have a outdoor drying rack? Awesome. A place above a sink to hang stuff? Radical. One of those old, raggedy towels to put the fabric on? Swell. A sink that no one else minds you using? Cool.
5) FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AND WATCH TUTORIALS. Do it. No buts. Don’t go face first into something new without a little bit of background information. Then dye to your hearts content.
I hope my advice helps! <3
Poor quality images of WIP
Practiced with Queen Zelda makeup and overall I feel I did a pretty good first try!
The eyelashes I got for this worked PERFECTLY except I still need some work putting them on. And not screwing up my eyeliner.
Ah yiss working on my queen zelduh
Reminder that you should practice your cosplay makeup a couple times before you wear your cosplay!! It has saved my butt more than once.
Ah yes high waisted grandma pants a success
And yes it’s pj fleece
I will be the softest Zelda
I’m tempted to make the shorts out of fleece pj bottoms instead of a cotton mix
I mean no one will see them they are covered by another layer
Have I mentioned how dorky Zelda’s bodice/middle section thing is?
It looks like something I would have drawn in middle school without the knowledge of how clothes work.
If I meet the designer of this game I will punch them.
PAX Prime plans!
I’m going to be focusing on making Libra’s outfit for a FE group, but if possible I’ll do my best to get Midna started!
(I’m excited to wear Princess Zelda again yissssss)
Plans will change as the con gets closer. <3
EDIT: HAHAHAHA OMG RIGHT AS I WAS GOING TO POST THIS HYRULE WARRIORS RELEASED ZELDA’S DESIGN
YEAH PRETTY LIKELY I’LL BE WEARING HER OUTFIT OVER MIDNAS SORRY GIRL
(look at this fab butt and how much worbla I will need yehaw)
