Hiatus ends soon! People will probably come back into the fandom when the show picks back up again, and there seems to be new homeworld designs that people will cosplay.
Anyone see any cool cosplays recently?
I'll do a tag dump in a minute
Has there been any solid Sardonyxs yet? I've seen a few, but none really hit the mark
This Rose is quite cute, Jasper also looks nice, but needs paint
She has a fitting face for Pearl
This amethyst is pretty well done. For some reason, most Amethysts look pretty bad
someone's already made Sapphire's dress from the preview
Selfpost. Besides nosegem, concrit? Esp with eye makeup. Wings don't look good with my hooded eyes ;_; Also I bought a not-so abrasive orange that I think would look a lot better.
so..is her gem rounded or cut at the edges?
actually, jasper has pretty bold winged liner in canon. i think it looks good, anon! maybe focus on making the tips of the wings sharper and continuing the liner around your lower lash line, as well as a matching orange lipstick. your wig looks promising and i like your paint color
i would say faceted too, but its odd that its only been in recent episodes that its shown to be faceted. unless im remembering it wrong, it was rounded until she lost her limb enhancers
Is the Peridot the anon who posted here last thread? You look pretty good! Of course there are the nitpick/fix points that you and other anons brought up, but you've definitely gotten the shape and overall general feel.
you're a really cute jasper! if you're having any troubles getting a perfect sharp wing, this trick works wonders.
i'm gonna ignore the orange wig for a second and call out that thing on her knees in the middle
putting characters in alternate outfits is cute and fun in drawings, but when you do it irl it just makes you look like you wanted to cosplay the character but you didn't want to put work into it.
i hate it. i'm so god damn salty about people showing up to cons in alt outfits that half the time are clothes that character wouldn't even wear.
Some kind of press release came with this still of Ruby and Sapphire attached.
If it were me, I'd sharpen the brows and fill them in as a darker shade of brown. Sharpen the wings, and I think contour and gradient the lips some so they don't disappear in all that orange lol
Nitpicks aside, you have a great face for Jasper!
If any of them have a proper cummerbund and the right color wig, sure. Till then? Nope.
The lack of christmas cosplays surprised me
Jasper's lips are pretty full and I think one of the biggest failings of people doing Jasper is not defining the lips. Do a darker orange lip liner slightly overdrawing the lips and fill them in to match your foundation. To make your lips look even fuller use a highlight in the center. Gives you instant pout and really elevates the look.
I wear cateye eyeliner everyday and I have hooded lids. wing the liner out farther and make sure it's pointed. also,?apply eyeshadow to your lids to give them depth. the trick is to extend/blend the "lid" out more with the darker color. do this above your natural lid. search yt for some tutorials for hooded lids!
i agree on the potential part, but right now everything just looks.. really bad. the visor is so off centered its covering part of her eye, the wig's side bang things are uneven and weirdly choppy, and the wig itself could use some reshaping and cleaning up. if she took some time to work out all the problems and make some of her own original things, it could be pretty good. but you cant really say that it looks good now
Copypasting from the help thread; figured I should post here too.
I'm thinking of selling the wig I used for Rainbow Quartz, and I'd love if I could get some suggestions for what price to put it at. (in USD)
>approx $100 worth of items from Wigisfashion sewed together (platinum blonde lacefront customized to have twice the amount of fibers, light blonde wig, lilac and light pink extensions)
>recently washed/brushed through
Sorry for the shitty photo. I can upload photos that better show the pink/lilac if need be.
Why the hell do pearl cosplayers always put their gens in the middle of their foreheads or between their eyebrows when her gem is way higher on her head????
Like yea, /her/ gem is in the middle of her forehead, but /her/ forehead is much larger with a receding (for lack of a better word) hair line!
You gotta place the tape on your hand a couple of times to take some of the stickyness away, then it won't rip off your make up (as much)
Its meant to be a guide, not to stick to your face
(like a thinner, more flexible and see through business card variant of the same tip/trick)
most cosplayers dont wanna shave their hair for something most people wont even notice?
I like this suit and wig
she kind of looks like a low budget gekroent with the shiny bodysuit and clunky boots.. i admire gekroent for posting so many detailed tutorials, but it just leads to people who follow them to the letter and do nothing by themselves.
>that stretched out diamond
youve got a point there anon. but better than them messing up completely I guess
>it just leads to people who follow them to the letter and do nothing by themselves
Detailed tutorials also lead to people who use them for just one part of their cosplay and do the rest themselves. I don't really get your argument here, unless it's that nobody should make tutorials to force cosplayers to think for themselves. Which imo is stupid since there's so few good tutorials in this fandom to start with.
i think you might have misunderstood my point, or i miswrote it, or whatever. i meant that it's nice of gekroent to post 4 or 5 tutorials on how to make her wig, visor, limb enhancers, but it leads to really unoriginal cosplayers that obviously tried to copy everything this one cosplayer has made to the letter and ending up looking like a carbon copy of the tutorials they used. if this peridot had used gekroent's wig tutorial and did their own things for the limb enhancers, suit, fingers, and visor, they would still look original, but copying every single part of her cosplay down to the shininess of the suit and the darts in the toes of the shoes leads to them looking very much like they simply saw one good peridot and replicated everything as much as they could without thinking how they could take a different approach to some aspects.
also sorry if it sounded like i was against tutorials in general- i support them wholeheartedly since they can help people with parts of a cosplay they may have never done before, but i was criticizing this peridot's useage of all of them and the way she obviously just tried to make an exact copy of gekroent's cosplay without creating anything originally
I didn't think she'd be able to turn that into something decent, I'm surprised. Still wish she'd gone with a bubblegum pink, but she probably just stitched together a bunch of cheap milkshake pink wigs
This shield looks nice. (candicatcosplay on Etsy)
Yeah she posted one but with different materials. Gekroent used eva and Hanari used fiberglass. The first version looked pretty clunky but her remake looks pretty nice. My only nitpick is her wig and bodypaint but she's remaking her wig so we'll see.
Don't forget her edgy alternative Rose. Tumblr to the max.
i.. still dont get this.. did she actually try to say this was cosplay? MAYBE it could be passable if she wore her wig with it (and barely at that), but it just looks like a 'hey i bought some merch' picture to me.
Its regarding a thing about her showing how she IS Rose Quartz. Something about wearing this all the time to prove her dedication. Basically cosplaying Rose on a daily basis without wearing the wig. She even goes by 'The Real Rose Quartz'.
oh jesus, how pretentious. and scarily close to fucking ~*fictionkin*~ too. when you get out of costume, youre not cosplaying anymore. when you have short blue hair and are just wearing a t shirt and beanie, youre not cosplaying, youre just wearing fan merch. i think hearing that just took away any admiration i had for her cosplay
That stomach.. I think I just threw up a little bit. Rose is a big woman, but she's not flabby and shapeless, she's actually got a flat stomach
Wow she has nooooooo business letting people pay her for wig styling. Her original wig is a nightmare and even her "cleaned up" version is messy and damaged looking. The only reason she's gotten as popular as she has is because she caters to the "sexy fatty" fetishers and people who think it's omgsoprogressive and "beautiful."
I know it's a touchy topic here and especially on tumblr, but Rose isn't flabby and shapeless- she's got a super defined waist and a very hourglass shape- there's no huge gut sticking out of her dress (until she gets pregnant). In my opinion, a 'real life Rose' would be 1 part tall Amazon woman and 2 parts plus-sized model. There's no denying she's bigger than the average woman, but bigger=/= sagging and droopy
You do know people in feeder relationships aren't just girls gaining for/because of their boyfriends, the gainer get off on weight gain regardless so her bf probably has nothing to do with it.
ugh it's depressing I mean even if you got off on being fat looking at those arms or legs in the mirror would surely put you off
sure some parts need fixing but they still look really good.
You understand that we're trying to copy a character right??
That we're all trying to look like the same character??
Not our own varients???
But ONE SINGLE CHARACTER?
Cosplay isnt original. Never has been never will.
Were all trying to look as exact to a character as possible, so if some one has achieved that, and put out tutorials on how others can do the same, people will use those tutorials to look as exactly like the character as possible.
Thus looking Iike that cosplayer.
Thus looking like the character
Ans if we all look like the character!!!!
We eill all look the same!!!¡!¡¡¡!
Jesus Christ anon, calm tf down. Are you one of the people who used her tutorials or what? That anon honestly has a point, it IS weird to copy another cosplayers cosplay down to a tee, especially when you can tell who they copied. Its great that gekroent made tutorials but those should be starting points, not something to copy exactly.
When it comes to any canon that's not live action there's always going to be different ways to interpret the art so yes there are variants.
Some as minor as proportions and some a major as gold freckles on Lapis.
Have you not seen the other Peridot cosplayers who look nothing like Gekroent? There already are variants and they don't look like each other, but they look good in their own way.
>being this autismo!!!¡¡¡!!!
Ok first off, maybe you should take a walk around the block and cool off for a minute. You're.. weirdly enraged about this topic. Secondly, Peridot is a pretty simple 2D design. Like >>8792381 said, there's so many different ways to interpret triangle hair, visor, and limb enhancers. Just look at all the Peridot cosplayers and how they all interpreted her hair, limb enhancers, body suit, visor, etc differently. With so much room for interpretation, many Peridot cosplayers are going to look different based on how they think she would look in real life. Therefore, it makes it extremely obvious if one person has just seen one cosplayer's interpretation, decided it was good enough, and just did everything they did without looking at Peridot's original design and thinking to themselves "Hey, I wonder if her limbs are shiny or matte, or if her visor is colored or clear, or if I should do a natural look for the hair, a helmet-y rigid style, or somewhere in between? etc, etc, etc". It's unoriginal. Just because gekroent did a nice interpretation of Peridot doesn't mean that it's the ONLY interpretation that's good, and simply mimicking hers down to the point where you're copying even the faults is boring.
it would have been better if the rest of the cosplay followed this color palette. Not just make the skin sunset palette and the rest daylight version.
Pic from the tumblr tag to contribute
loving the sheen of her suit.
I was hoping for someone to go the spacy shiny route
doesn't seem like she's worn it to a con yet
it depends entirely how they carry their weight, desu
if theyre able to minimize the amount of cellulite by not completely fucking giving up the moment they hit 200lbs and have an attractive face, then yes, a possibility exists.
My favourite Rose so far--had my eyes on it since the start. This wig has the volume needed, and her gem lights up/glows. All the dress needs is an ironing, in my opinion.
Here's the only picture she's gotten of it so far, but I'm curious to see it actually in action.
I really wish she'd taken some of the volume out of the top and distributed it so that the wig was longer. It's way too short and squat, and just makes her entire body look absurdly tiny. On a bigger girl this would probably look better proportioned but it's practically eating her.
People are calling it perfect but my shitty editing shows what it would look like if it was near perfect.
The massive star is annoying me.
the salt is real
I'm guessing you are her?
Nah, just salty, paranoia-chan.
I've only made 1 cosplay in my life, and it turned out like shit, not gonna lie. I just admire her dedication. As I said, she's not /perfect/ and no one said she is, but she put a fuckton of work into this and it shows.
Did you really have to samefag for that?
It's common knowledge that Pear-chan has a really pretty face, and always has (though the more weight she gains, the less her genetics can protect her face from the fat). Sorry you're so naturally ugly that no amount of weight you lose will fix it.
assuming you arent this cosplayers, a good way to not sound like you are her is to not shower so much praise on it, and dont argue with people over it. there are faults with it, and you spamming pictures of it while vehemently defending it sounds really suspicious. also, if you'd grabbed them from facebook, they wouldnt be called 'rose1', they'd be a long stream of numbers
>an social justice warrior
sorry for your stupidity :(
Pear-chan is cute in the face. Sorry you're so fugly and jealous that you feel the need to accuse me of being a sjw to feel good about yourself.
>how do acronyms work
Do you pronounce the whole thing in your head or something? Because who the fuck would say "a ess-jay-double-yoo"? That's stupid. Use "an" if you're using the acronym.
>everyone trying this hard to win an argument on the internet
stay catty, cgl
>there are faults with it
Oh no her gem is an inch too wide, WORST COSPLAY EVER amirite? The only reason she's getting "showered with praise" is because she's a great cosplayer, nitpicking aside. She spent a lot of money and time on her dress and wig and it shows.
>spent a lot of money
should have just ended there. there's no way this cosplay had to be $1000
also, have you even read the thread? the gem is probably the least thing people are talking about. the 'cutout' is a weirdly huge brown star that she slapped on there, the wig isn't the right color or shape, there's no sweetheart bodice, and its wrinkly as fuck. learn to read as well. i said youre the only one showering her with praise here- she's good, but not great. you're only digging yourself a bigger hole of selfposting by the way you keep defending her/yourself. no one would defend a random cosplayer to this level, or have specifically named files that they 'just took off facebook loll~~'
same anon that saved this as a reference- any ideas how to get the seamless transition from bodice to first tier? ive made two rose dresses but the seam there has always bothered me enough that i end up selling them.
Two ways you could pattern it to eliminate the waist seam. The first being a modified princess torso block which would allow for best fit. With so many curves that would work, but the princess seams would go through the first tier. The second is a modified torso block with fish eyed darts which would eliminate the waist seam and not extend a seam down far. Personally I would drape that instead of flat draft those fish eyed darts just because of the curve of the skirt, but I imagine it would look nice.
Lol this thread is full of salty hypocrites who preach love and tolerance but will cut your throat just because of a wrinkle that looked like someone's dead grandmother.
I hope the creators go on another hiatus and shove it up your tumblr freak out asses.
>"The most expensive pieces were the wig itself (8 wigs), the styling materials (like 20 cans of hair spray), the “stuffing” for the wig, and the glitter for for the wig (combined is 400$)"
>"The fabric for the dress itself was 250$ and extra materials such as boning and thread and the base skirt and hoop skirt cost another 150, so 400$ total."
>"200 that is left went towards the gem, the make up, the shoes, fake nails and nail and nail polish, and contacts!"
I am still so confused by these numbers.
she didnt have to buy actual rhapsody from gothic lolita wigs, but chose to.. for what reason? and how does a gem, makeup, shoes, fake nails, nail polish, and contacts equal 200 bucks? did she not own any makeup beforehand and had to buy everything?
Hey guys, so apparently there has been a really spoilery short leak from one of the upcoming steven bomb episodes so beware of that (or i guess if you want to see it you can find it on youtube pretty easily)
That is the best fucking wig for Rose I have seen and the curls are SOFT yet tight enough to be distinguished from being a huge mob. The dress needs work, but I don't care. The wig is perfection.
>thinking labeling something as 'rose1' isn't just an easier way to find the image in a folder probably filled with hundreds of other images.
Calm down, anon. The image save name arguments are the dumbest on cgl.
Probably because GLW are really good for not tangling which made it easy to choose them when styling a hug wig like this. Hell, I have some of my own that are long hair styles because Id rather have a good wig that won't tangle over something like a shitty quality Arda wig that tangles so easy.
>GLW are really good for not tangling
This comment made me finally visit the GLW site after hearing about them so many times before. Slightly OT, but do you know how big their wig caps stretch? The main reason I buy primarily from Arda is because of the larger wig sizes.
>the GLW wigs look so lush and pretty wow
>how had I never visited this site until now
>Thinking fiber slickness means a thing when putting "20 cans of hairspray" into a wig
I own a GLW rhapsody and even without styling it's nothing to cry home about and definitely not worth $65. It's nice and thick sure but not much better than the $25 knockoff versions I have.
They are really good and they hold their shape exceptionally well for soft wigs that are already styled. This is what they are good for. The wig caps are very stretchy and can be adjusted. The tight curled wigs to the normal straight extra long wigs are great because they don't tangle. The best part about the curly ones is that you can comb them and they basically bounce right back without being tangled and, yes, the comb goes right through them if they need slight defrizzing if you are doing activities like dancing or wearing one of the wigs to a party.
20 cans of sprays for ALL those wigs with the curls still looking soft and not crisp and gross like all the other Rose wigs. I don't know if you have ever styled a wig before, anon, but it looks like she can easily fluff those curls if needed. You throw even a slight bit of hairspray on any other $25 wig and you suddenly need to wash it. GLW are great for soft styling. Arda and other less lubricated wigs need washing after using even a little bit of product because of how 'dirty' looking they become shortly after. Arda is also good for extensive styling. Thats what they are made for. GLW are great for soft styling and wigs you don't have any plan on styling and instead plan on just cutting.
I bought a long blue wig for my sister with pigtails for her first cosplay as Miku. It has yet to tangle into an unmanageable mess and stays pretty clean when she was trying to learn some Vocaloid song I don't know.
This is honestly all a mess.
>wig is just kind of off even if volume is there
>really heavy anime-inspired eye-makeup Rose just does not have
>not chubby or thick enough
>gigantic poorly made star and gem
>poorly constructed and wrinkles literally all over the fabric
She/you think it's really hot shit when your place looks so trashy too.
That's a lot of intimate knowledge about how she constructed her wig, whiteknight. Even if she's creating a thick layer of hairspray under the curls or whatever you're describing, 20 cans is an outrageous amount of hairspray for one wig. This is coming from someone who regularly takes wig commissions.
Actually my rhapsody is one of the originals. It was an excellent wig for the time, but is no longer worth 3x the price of a knockoff, even if the quality didn't decrease. Despite what >>8795450 says, it needs to be carefully detangled after wear just like any normal wig. I also don't understand wtf they mean by the cap is stretchy. It's a generous size like most nicer wigs, but not as big as the oversized 23" ones Arda makes.
>Arda and other less lubricated wigs
Confirmed you have no idea what you're talking about. Slick wigs are more tangle resistant because of the fiber content and strand structure, not because they've been oiled up with some kind of product.
I can't help but wonder if you're the Rose upthread trying to justify your $400 wig.
i actually do like the volume that the rhapsody style wigs give- im going to try to get this shape with my cosplay, but with a more accurate color and shape than the actual cosplayer. also, not going to use actual GLW because fuck that shit
Can you somehow add length to it? My problem with the above wig is that it's so short compared to how wide it is. Maybe adding some shorter curls will help balance the length since they'll be longer.
Oh, I plan on sewing some wefts super low down and only curling the very bottom of them, so they'll still have length. Then I'll curl the wigs on top so I have both volume and length. I'm not the greatest at explaining, so I can draw a quick diagram if that doesn't make sense
also, has anyone ever tried this for rose's hair? I'm trying to decide if I should go with the rhapsody route (making a lot of adjustments, however), or try something new
me too- the curls themselves are great, its the color, length, and needlessly buying glw wigs that doesnt seem good. im planning on using rhapsody wigs too to get curls like this, but just change about everything else
I want to cosplay Jasper so bad. I've got the perfect body for her (tall, muscular legs, huge boobs) & she's my fave character and I have the sewing skills to make it really nice but...I just moved out and can barely afford food let alone cosplay. UGH.
in light of the rose debate: someone on /co/ has postulated that lion was created when roses' hair became sentient and slithered off her head
we have a colourscheme for sworntosword pearl, so thats good
Definitely something very drapey for the veil, and try lagoon blue from mehron paradise- I used that paint for Sapphire and it's a very nice color, I can show pictures of what it looked like on me if you want
I'd love to see a test image of it! I color picked the image for any one who needs the colors.
sure thing! here's a photo- i'm a fan of mehron paradise- it applies really well
yeah, no problem! you can always mix it with some white to get the perfect shade. and i did use armsocks out of scrap fabric i had (honestly, they were just fabric tubes, not full armsocks, but same principle)! even with sealing, i didnt want to risk getting paint on white sleeves/gloves
I may make armsocks since only a portion of her hand is showing. I may get some sort of rolling stool to use at the con. I considered using a wheel chair draped with fabric but the fandom at con would murder me dead.
the main reason ive heard against unnecessary wheelchairs at cons (besides someone that might take offence) is that theyre really hard to maneuver around a con, crowded or not. it doesnt look like she always has to stand- i think it would still look good if you were just standing
I'm not sure how the outfit would look standing. I may try to sketch it out, but the idea I had was very drapey. I'm just not sure how the skirt and shirt go? It might just be a large veil with no skirt, and her outfit is underneath.
With the way her veil folds around her sleeves I'm guessing it's a separate bit of fabric to whats covering her lap.
Her styling kinda echos the classic veiled oracle look and you don't want to mess up the hang of the area over the eyes so keeping the upper layer as light as possible is probably best.
I found this fan art on Tumblr that fudges the details but does give some ideas about how the whole outfit could look.
Wearing armsocks when it's only a portion of her hand showing is counterproductive... Armsocks are trickiest to get looking good at the fingers and quality nonface body paint (like pax or alcohol activated ) on just your hands is quick and fast to apply. Just paint.
Hands are the absolute worst part of your body to paint because they sweat so much and are constantly touching things. It's better to have a lumpy glove than to be melting paint all over your your phone and the rest of your costume.
>have half-finished malachite cosplay from last year
>don't really want to finish it because of the fanbase
>maybe it'll change when the show comes back off of hiatus
it's going to be a pain to drag around a convention too. the framework for the butt-body is the size of my own torso, but none of my cosplay friends live near enough to come down and do a photoshoot.
Why would someone go through all the trouble of rendering multiple screengrabs and then somehow "miss" a completely fucked up bodypart? Even if it is a fake, it's hand drawn, not a knockoff purse that slipped by inspection. Supposedly it's a grab from Message Received but we'll see by the end of the week if it's real.
Have you never painted your hands before? It WILL come off, no matter what you do. Unless you sit around in a room touching nothing, or constantly repaint your hands throughout the day, the paint will fade or crack at the very least. Your hands are constantly touching things, moving, and getting sweaty. You'd have to paint yourself with oil paint or heavy chemicals (you know, stuff that stains your skin because it's bad for it) to have body paint on your hands that won't come off after a day of wear.
not the anon you're replying to, but PAX stays on all day. what youre saying is true about water based paint, but using something like PAX wont let the paint come off until you remove it with alcohol
Have you ever used PAX? Because that shit pills and peels ESPECIALLY at the hands. On the other "hand", I've used water based paint on my hands and have had no problems whatsoever unless I actually get the paint wet.
I wasn't aware most people ran around smearing the back of their hands and knuckles on things. You must lead a very interesting life, anon.
I am ex-hamsteak and have painted my hands a dozen or more times. Sure the fingertips and palms fade a little during the day but it's not as big a deal as you're making it out to be.
Anon, I think you're mixing up alcohol based paint (which stays on hands and must be removed with alcohol) and PAX (which doesn't stick to fingertips well and can be removed with PAX remover, scrubbing, water, etc)
Differnt anon but my PAX sticks well until the first knuckle or so. Below that it tends to wrinkle off from all the movement. I use prosaide ii, maybe different forumals behave differently?
cannot unsee it.
