Cosplay is difficult and I’m not quite sure how I’m going to go about this one.

Once I get the armor for Darkleer, I’ve gotta figure out how to get it into proper colors.

Colored duct tape across all of it and in the patterns? It’d look sloppy but it’d be a quick way to go about it.

Paint? What kind of paint? And will I have the time to paint it all?

Other methods? I’m not sure of any, though I’m open to suggestions.

I’ve also still gotta do the horns. And figure something out for the glasses. And decide whether or not I want to do a helmet thing for those weird white lines up his head. And I’ve gotta finagle a bow or bow-like prop. Or just go bowless, but that’s not very Darkleer.

Depending on what your armor is made of perhaps you can use spray paint so you would ducktape your design and spray over it to get the right design you want?

If you go with a helmet for his head then you can attach your horns and the glasses to it. So you could get a simple bicycle helmet and take out square  sunglasses from a random dollar store pair and get some wire that you paint white and use that as the rim. The horns could then be made out of something stronger than model magic and thus make them less likely to break and more stable. You could probably paper mache them or something.

I’ll need to go shopping for the armor soon. Gonna hit up a Dick’s Sporting Goods or something, see what they’ve got.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t think of spray paint. That’s a good idea.

And a bike helmet was my first thought, but I dunno how well it’s all gonna work, y’know? None of my previous cosplays have had headgear.

Spray paint is my favourite thing to use in cosplay because it looks really official no matter what you use it on. I used it to put the Gemini symbol on a hoodie and it looked like a store bought item. I spray paint everything now if I can.

The thing that would be tricky about the bike helmet is the thickness of the helmet and the amount of holes in it.

Or, now that I think about it, you could do what I did for Mituna’s helmet. I used a little kid’s baseball/softball helmet. You could buy a baseball helmet which is thin and generally doesn’t have many holes in it at all. You would probably have to cut one ear piece part off though.

Baseball helmet might work better. I’ll compare and contrast when I get the chance.

…Oh, wait. Am I going to have to do something for ears? I’m gonna have to do something for ears, aren’t I? I didn’t think about that.

I don’t think so. I don’t really think ears are a huge deal unless you’re a seadweller.

Also, for the bow, there’s the cheapest sale for a Hawkeye bow here that I think would look good with Darkleer and if not you could always change it if you want. http://halloween.hrtmiller.com/Item_i156435

I’ll take it.

The only part I’m worried about is con weapons regulations, but as long as I keep it unstrung except for photos, I doubt it’ll be a huge problem.

I’ll invest in a sort-of quiver, too, and modify the included arrows to have the unique blue arrowheads that Darkleer’s got goin’ on. That’s won’t be difficult.

I’m glad I could help!! :D

drippingcolorsproductions asked: once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers (not back to me, I did it already). Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity! (✿◠‿◠)

This is new. Ummmmm

  1. I’m a pretty decent writer? I like to do the writey thingy and people think I do it well.
  2. I’m a very good softball player. If I can get my batting average up I bet I could be All Conference.
  3. I’m funny. I can be stupid-funny, intelligent-funny, joke-funny, and sarcastic-funny. I’m just good at making people laugh.
  4. I’m a good listener. If there’s something wrong going on and you want someone to listen I am apparently immensely good at it.
  5. Feeding off that last one, I’m also good at either giving or not giving advice. Because sometimes people want help and sometimes people don’t and I know how to tell the difference.

People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???

that was the point???

like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???

It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?

You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote

some said it thank god
