Dirk Strider - Step by Step
1 - The base wig.
2 - I combed the hair to the left side to create a side parting. I pinned down the different sections of the wig, e.g. fringe, side burns. I cut the fringe in a semi-straight line, leaving it slightly shorter than to the nose.
3 - I pinned up the back part of the wig that was going to be the long strands later. I cut the hair below that line layer by layer until it was short and flat against the back of the head of the wig stand.
4 - Time to do the shorter side! It’s always easier because there is less hair to deal with, so best start here. I pinned up what would become the longer strands and cut & sprayed the side burn. I also left a little strand in front, because it looks more natural that way. I then unpinned the side bit and cut it layer by layer. I always combed it back to see how long the strands were. I used gel and spray to give form to the spikes and the side burn.
5 - Front view!
6 - The back was already a quite layered, so I could shorten it casually without pinning up layer by layer. I didn’t use gel for this bit and simply fixed the wild look with hair spray.
7 - Side and fringe! I pinned the fringe part aside and proceeded to work on the side bit. Pinned up layer by layer, shortened it all the way around and then finished the look by casually shortening strands where it seemed necessary. I combed through the wig with my fingers to give it a good look. I then teased the strands from the parting to the side, that made them look wilder and fuller. I fixed the look with hair spray and gel.
I shortened a lot of strands from the top layers of the fringe, combed them across with my fingers, finished the spiked with hair gel and fixed them in place with hair spray.
8 - Finishing up! I used a blow dryer to give the fringe more volume. I also fixed the side burns that way, so that they wouldn’t stick out to the sides later. I cut off all the bits sticking out at odd angles to finish up.
I changed some tidbits that I didn’t like before - gave the whole wig more volume, added additional spikes and such.
So what did it look like afterwards?
THE RESULT!

I’ve always hated doing shoe and boot covers until my friend introduced me to this method. Turns out it’s not very well known how to do it! So I decided to take some photos while I did my most recent ones and make a tutorial for others to use. This tutorial can be used for socks, shoe covers, spats, custom boots, and anything else you can think of!

I’m only covering how to make the pattern, not how to sew it because I feel like that part is pretty straight forward.

Here we go~

Skill level required: beginner
Time: ~1hr
Materials:
-shoes
-saran wrap
- tape
-pen
-paper scissors
-ruler
-butcher paper
- a body
- a friend!(not required, but VERY helpful!)

Here are your supplies! I used blue tape because it’s what I had lying around, but I would suggest packers tape. It’s a lot easier.

Hello friends! I am - as usual - way early on being stoked for Halloween, so I thought I would upload my Gory Skin Tutorial for anyone planning their costumes early, or for anyone who needs some makeup-y stuff for cosplay at any time of the year. Learn how to scare the crap out of people in ten steps or less!

For this, you will need:

  • Vaseline
  • Toilet paper
  • Eyeshadow (brown/red for effect shown, or other colours of your choosing depending on what look you’re going for)

Click the photos for step-by-step instructions and feel free to message me if you have any questions or need any help!

NOTE: SKIP STEPS EIGHT AND NINE IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO DRIVE OR OPERATE MACHINERY. THESE STEPS WILL IMPAIR YOUR VISION.

I’ve put all of the fabric painting tutorials into one big photo post.

Includes silk painting with resist (Elven Banner), free-hand painting on stretch fabrics (Jareth from Labyrinth), fake embroidery with puffy paint (Peter of Narnia), graphite transfer paper with fabric paint pens (Tali from Mass Effect) and regular Tulip fabric paint (TARDIS lab coat).

Maybe this format is better?
