Alright so my Eridan and I made a makeshift photoshoot happen at a Gathering we had yesterday, so spoilered is a better picture that includes both of our March cosplays and a pic of my normal Karkat.
Fanime was awesome, I was surprised at the HUGE turnout.
I was the Vriska with a party consisting of Karkles/DocScratch(The one with the huge head), Kanaya (West), Terezi, the tallest (and Asian) Sollux and the Weeping Angel.
I'll post a picture of a group of us when I can but this was how my cosplay turned out:
Let me know if you saw me and who you were!
Heya, a Kanaya-cosplayer-to-be here. I'll be frank; I've never cosplayed before. Yet I've decided that I'm going to tag along to the London MCM Expo this October. This'll give me enough time to sort everything out and whatnot.
I know how to do the horns - I've got a template cut out and ready to sculpt on with Model Magic and I've got the acrylics and primer for it - and I've got my eye on a basic red-pink maxi skirt which will do the trick for a first-time cosplay. My hair's short as it is, so I'm thinking of buying a non-permanent dye and gelling it up on the day.
However, as I'm in the UK I have no idea whatsoever where I could by some Model Magic from. I know it can be relatively cheap (£3-4 for a small bag), but I can't ever remember seeing it on the high street, and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good shop/chain or website in the UK where I could purchase/order it from.
Also I must say there are some fantastic cosplays here. I bow down to you all.

I had the best time. Don't have any photos of my own, but oh my gooodddd, so makny people took photos of us.
I was March Eridan (and Terezi when I got cold) on Saturday, and Tavros on Sunday.
And I had so much fun, mainly falling down the stairs and offering parma vviolets out of my rainbow bucket.
MY FACE IS SO DERPY AHAHAHA
OH GUTTER, YOU WERE THE BEST TAVROS!
Seriously, I loved how in character you got. C: Absolutely adorable.
My favourite picture is still me and Kanaya doing invisible lesbian motorcycle;
Just got some more photos from MCM!
Bro vs Time-Pirate epic battle, GO;
More work in progress shots of my DaveSprite! The final's going to have white bodypaint and also wings and the gut sword, of course. I'm wondering if I should cut down on the fluff on the feather ruff though? (I personally love all the fluff, but I'd love all the feedback I can get.)
here's a more full body shot Right Here my only regret is that the only pants I could find that were the right shade were skinny jeans.
edit: yessss these con pictures are all wonderful, keep them coming!
So, I went to Comicon on Sunday and had a real great time! I didn't really get much pictures but,
I'm pretty sure it's a bit obvious I was Jade. I'm not sure who the other cosplayers were but they were beautiful. * 7 * Ahhh, first convention and first cosplay I did. Made me feel all giddy on the inside to get recognized by other people, y'know? ; w ;
My Rose cosplay pic. Taken at school last Friday before I left for Fanime. More Fanime pics to come. C=
Hey, uhh, I guess I'll post here and hopefully not be boo'ed out?
I was the Droog on Friday at AN, as well as the short-haired Gamzee with all the Faygo (I couldn't afford a wig in time, as I'd just gotten back from Ireland and pretty much spent every last penny I had there), and the Vriska-Outfit John on Sunday. I totally loved meeting everyone and hanging out with them and hope I didn't come off awkward or anything like that, because I'm always worrying about crap like that. Everyone seemed super friendly and I ended up hanging out with Yokaiy, Nannasprite, Mr. Egbert, and Normally (Wise-guy John) pretty much all weekend.
Anyway, I spotted the props/accessories for sale at the beginning, and figured I'd suggest some glasses which are - while they're quite a bit for props - amazing quality: http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?n...uct_id=3165837 for Sollux and http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?n...uct_id=3315043 for Terezi. I have the Sollux ones myself, and a friend of mine has the Terezi ones. Just figured I'd drop the links incase anyone wanted to get some shades that are really nice (I wear my pair like, any time I go out).
I still need to dump the few pictures I managed to take at the con somewhere and upload them, so I'll likely be back soon. Okay bye.
I also adore fluff, so asking me may be wrong but, mygods I love it.
And those glasses are gorgeous, but I'm poor sadly.

Were you at our fail gathering? Haha! I was the Gamzee with the Karkat on Saturday.
But yes at Phoenix Comicon, the Homestuck gathering, we all met on some stairs across the street from the convention center. You know, having Homestuck fun. Drawing with chalk, eating pie and other things. Until this officer lady comes up yelling "NO STOP THIS RIGHT NOW! Do you know that drawing with chalk on the sidewalk is considered graffiti!" Yeeeeah then she kept yelling at us or whatever and told us to move. We went inside but it was more fun outside drawing with chalk. xD
I loved meeting all of you guys though!
Late on the AN train, but here are the few pictures I could snag from my table: http://s1080.photobucket.com/albums/...011%20Cosplay/ I was the Fef and Jade in half of these.
...And as an amendment to my previous fin tutorial, while they do stay on the whole day, they greatly impair your hearing. But so does three days at con, so.
@iglw: Yes! Big copies of the few group shots I made it to! Thank you so much! And so many more photos. Awesome. Oooo, and there was a ghost Aradia on Friday? ...And who were you cosplaying?
@yokaiy: sorry I didn't stick around longer.
@Crystal Blackpaws: I'm pretty sure I missed you and am very sad about that. Are you going to rewear this to FanExpo or the Cosplay Picnic?
@Path: Your group looked great. Way too classy for the rest of the Homestuckers.
@Chesheh: You photos all turned out well. Love the one I'm guessing is the Dr, skipping with the blur. And you're the only person I can find who's got pics of me in Arist Alley. Thanks And thanks again for the chalk!
