Hey! I was wondering what you used for Ren's teeth on your cosplay. Amazing cosplays by the way!!!! <3
Wahhh~! Thank you so much! For Ren’s teeth, I am actually using an old pair of Scarecrow fangs that I had from when I cosplayed Vriska. O: They’re the regular ones (and I say this because there are like dual fang ones and like saber ones that are super long ) and they fit like a charm because they are custom fit due to a special molding method that is used to get your tooth’s shape.
The casing should look something like this
They’re very comfortable and I highly recommend them because of that! I forget that they’re there half of the time, honestly. They’re pretty affordable as well~! If I can recall correctly they weren’t more than like $15 with shipping included in that price.
Thank you for brightening my day with an ask, dear anon~! :3 I hope that helped!
I met you at a kon last year when you were dressed as Natsuki! Your cosplays are great and hopefully we can see each other again at a kon this year!!
Ahhhhhh~! Hello! I’m glad we can chit chat again! Hopefully we can meet now that m Natsuki is a lot more developed and not just a casual cosplay this year! I will definitely be bringing him to A-kon this year so let’s pray that we can meet again then! Thanks for dropping in again, dear!
You probably never cosplay her anymore, But could I ask about your Vriska Arm you made a tutorial on a while ago? ;w;
Oh my goodness sure thing dear~! Fortunately I still have some progress pictures!
- 2 sheets of grey craft foam
- A black baseball sock [or just any knee/thigh high sock]
However on these I DO recommend the baseball/ softball socks as they are made as solid tubes and don’t include little lumps for your heel. The older ones do but if you go to a sports store and look at them they come in a variety of colors and have a very elasticy feel to them as opposed to a woven texture normal socks give.
They’ll look like this:
instead of this:
- and a poop ton of hot glue
The method I’d used was a little ghetto however, it worked out rather well. I think I have an old tutorial somewhere. I’ll explain it as best as I can but I’ll also include the tutorial for you just in case my explanation doesn’t make sense! :3
First I put the sock over my arm as far up as the tube would go and spread out my fingers into as much of a relaxed position as possible. Next I took scissors and cut holes for my fingers. I used fray lock to keep them from fraying from there and pulled the sock right side out over a empty plastic water bottle. I used this because I have REALLY little and skinny arms that are about the same diameter as a water bottle if not a little less in some places. I believe I used several different shaped ones and even a plastic cup at some point for the bicep portion of my arm.
I cut out 1 inch thick strips of craft foam that varied in length according to what the circumference of different parts of my arm was plus some for extra room when you flex and bend your arm. If I remember correctly it was my wrist, fore arm. and bicep measurements. I started at the wrist and began to hot glue ONLY the perimeter of the bands onto the sock, positioning the bangs to where the crease in between the bands (where they met around again) was on the inside of my arm. I repeated this all the way down the arm but skipped a portion for my elbow plates which were simple rectangle shapes that had rounded corners on the inside of my Elbow and the outside of my elbow.
I made a rounded triangle shape for the top of my hand and then from there worked on the fingers. I basically did the same as I did for the arm portion of the robot arm but with my fingers by wrapping small 1/2” or less bands of craft foam around my fingers and glueing the ends together. I would do this for every segment of my finger: the portion closest to the base of my hand, the middle segment and the tips of my fingers.
The tips of the fingers are essentially the same process only with curved ends. Once I had all of the pieces per finger[ and I reccomend doing all pieces for one finger and combining them as they are completed so you literally have finger long rings per finger. It’s easier to keep track fo your pieces that way] I would glue a tiny bit along the bottom crease of each piece and connect them that way so it would have flexibility for my fingers to bend. After that I basically did the same thing but with the inside of the TOP portion of the finger-lets and glue them to the top parts of the holes for my fingers. And then I was done~!
I REALLY hope that helped! If it didn’t then here is the tutorial I whipped up for it a LONG time ago! (sorry it’s so derpy. OTL )
