Anon, follow your dreams. Just paint your skin a deep purple/pink. The only controversy I've seen over white people cosplaying Garnet was when that one cosplayer painted her skin to actually look like a black person, which doesn't even match Garnet's tone at all. But let's not go into that again

I have a question for you guys.

Do you think it's acceptable to leave extra parts off of fusion cosplays if you know it'd look better off without them?

For example, if you cosplayed Opal but didn't do her second pair of arms, or cosplayed Rainbow Quartz without the second pair of eyes. I feel like most of them don't translate to reality well and even the most well-constructed extra limbs end up looking off.
>>
Does anyone have the picture of that scary sapphire cosplay with the giant one eye?
>>
>>8799777
There's been more than one huge, terrifying eye, but this one tops the list for me. They're selling it on Etsy
>>
>>8799771
In my honestly opinion, if I saw a cosplay like that irl, I probably wouldn't ask for their photo. I feel like part of cosplaying fusions is that they are complicated, and just completely omitting limbs/eyes just seems like avoiding it because it's hard. Not saying that it makes the cosplay bad, just incomplete and not as good as someone who attempted arms/extra eyes. There are so many tutorials on how to have extra sets of arms and eyes.
>>
>>8799789
But I feel like they never end up looking good. Even on the absolute BEST fusion cosplay I've seen, the extra arms looked slightly okay, but they were nowhere near even being good.

Same with Malachites, Garnets, and Rainbow Quartzes. I've seen painted-on eyes that look almost photorealistic, but they still just look awkward on a human body.
>>
>>8799723

>>8799777
would a closed eye look better? i know it does in the rainbow quartz cosplays

>>8799771
if the rest of the cosplay is top-tier i wouldn't mind much

>>8799723

You're free to your own opinions and to do your own cosplay, but it just loses a lot of impact to have a key part of the character missing. A lot of fusions have great arms (pic related), and it sounds like you're falling into uncanny valley when you say extra eyes look awkward. Of course they're never going to look 100% perfect because there's only so much that prosthetics/makeup can do, but it looks better than a Rainbow Quartz who simply skipped out on doing a difficult part of the cosplay.
>>
>>8799798
Just got it off tumblr, sorry anon. I don't save usernames
>>
>>8799797
True. It wouldn't automatically make the cosplay terrible, but it's similar to when people just have a round/natural afro for Garnet. Sure, it might look good, but at the end of the day it doesn't resemble her actual hair and it's pretty obvious that the cosplayer skipped styling it because it was hard.
>>
>>8799717
This is the second pair of plastic Lapis wings I've seen that stick straight out. Why do people not angle them slightly backward? imo they'd look more natural.

its because her wings do stick straight out. id agree that theyd look more natural bent back if they were bird wings, but water can basically do whatever it wants
>>
>>8799704
I agree with >>8799712
You cosplay that alien and have a great time, just choose an appropriate paint and tell anyone screaming blackface to go eat a bucket of clods.
>>
>>8799833
>>8800038
It's not that they aren't angled back enough, it's that the cosplayer didn't bother to bend the plastic at all. It would look more like flowing water if it wasn't a stick straight sheet of acrylic.
>>
>>8799723
Too bad she won't get to wear that after today
>>
>>8800201
she actually claimed in her post that she made her cosplay really accurate to how YD actually looks. yikes

Lapis and steven look so bad oh my god.

>>8800359
i totally agree with you on steven, but lapis looks alright to me. not super great, but also not too bad
>>
>>8800363
The wig is shit, and from what I see, she wasn't even painted. She was photoshopped blue.
>>
>>8799783
I HATE THIS
>>
>>8800359
hi im actually the steven in the photo ya i agree tho my cosplay is bad do you have suggestions that i could make it better? i have a different wig for it now and i have the sandals too
>>
>>8800468
not the anon youre responding to, but the skinny jeans make you look really feminine since they accentuate your hips/thighs a lot, and dont seem much like steven at all. also, something weird seems to be going on with the sleeves of your t shirt
>>
>>8800480
ya the skinny jeans were last minute thing i didnt expect to be doing a photo shoot and i never noticed the sleeves are weird im think im going to redo the whole cosplay
>>
>>8799798
>>8800208
She's so full of herself it's astounding. I follow her on a couple of her social media accounts for laughs and she never fails to disappoint.
>>
>>8800468
The wig is flat and straight, and your body is too feminine. The skinny jeans do not help with this but you already know. You're wearing sneakers instead of sandals. The shirt would be okay if you could fill it out but the sleeves are too big for you.
>>
>>8799723
Neck too short/10
>>
>>8799674
Why does Lapis have such a high hem? That's like a foot of extra fabric.
>>
requesting good rainbow quartzes or opals? they're my favorite fusions and i need inspiration to finish my cosplays of them
>>
>>8800591
She certainly is full of herself. She posted one of my cosplays in a collage on her Instagram comparing me and two others to one of her costumes. She deleted the photo, but it was a pathetic ego trip.
>>
>>8800591
>>8800729
don't forget that one time she made a twitter ONLY to tag the crewniverse in a shit ton of posts because a peridot cosplayer she knows got liked by deedee or so and she got jealous

>>8800764
Can you link to one of her accounts, like her tumblr or something? I want to see if it's the girl I know IRL because it would be crazy, but plausible

How long would you all guess Sadie's hair is on a person with an actual neck?
>>
>>8801676
my guess would be shoulder length, like this cosplayer, but maybe a tiny bit longer
>>
>>8799690
Holy shit, what did she do while sewing that costume to make the seams so weird?
>>
>>8801697
she probably ended up stretching one of the layers while sewing, which makes this "effect".

It's something hard to avoid if it's your first time sewing stretch fabric.

also related, but forgot to put it in my post- i want to go for a really bombshell type figure, which i dont really have (im a size US 8-10, which isn't super thin, but also isnt quite as big as her). would a pushup bra+hip padding give the right shape, or is there something else you guys would recommend to give her figure? thanks!

looks like we're heading right back into peridot territory when she was first introduced. helmet vs. hair. but anyways, >>8801908, i would look up pompadour tutorials to start out with. youll probably have to add some wefts to create the double pompadour she has, but it should be a good start

The newest wave of shitty "me-firsters" has begun.
This chick sells cosplay shit too. Think she made those sleeves that could be used in lieu of body paint that were so popular for a while.

I didn't realize Yellow Diamond's Pearl was wearing such a skimpy outfit. It doesn't look too bad in cartoon form, but if you think about how this would translate to real life that's a lot of skin showing and the neckline is hella low.

>>8801875
For the figure add a corset along with the padding, it will really help. If you can look up drag queen tutorials on padding you can find a lot of good tips.

Thanks so much, anons! Pic related is what I'm planning so far: bombshell bra (going to remove the straps), corset (with steel boning), and hip padding. Should I go with the full lace up corset, though? The one in the pic is a more lightweight corset, but I could always opt for a more heavy duty one as well.

that's not a corset. That's a shitty rubber thing that will not only be extremely uncomfortable but will be super hot, will roll, and look bad.
IMO you should use a corset, but a real one, because anything less will look and feel horrible. So first you should familiarize yourself with what a real corset is, and where to find them.

How to tell what a real corset is:

Where to buy:
Honestly for what you are doing you will not need anything better than an Orchard Corset cs-411 or cs-426 https://www.orchardcorset.com/ but good lists can be found here(make sure to read and watch reviews)

>>
>>8801914
agreed. I was on the "it's hair" side in peridot's case from the start but this looks a lot like a helmet.
>>
>>8799672
I'm surprised I kind of like the fact that she used faux fur for hair here. But I wonder if it's just because the photograph is super flattering.
>>
Do you think Yellow Diamond is going to be a trend/meme cosplay now that we've seen her in her entirety?

She's the first SU character that I actually resemble enough to feel right doing a cosplay of but I don't want to do it and then be in a sea of shitty bandwagon cosplays of her at a con or on tumblr.
>>
>>8803243
a few people might cosplay her, but havent seen a ton of people saying they plan to. and those who do will likely do it shitty, so power to you, anon! make a nice looking YD
>>
>>8801914
I think it's hair and not a helmet, because of her Pearl. Her Pearl's hair matches the shape and style of Yellow Diamond's. I don't see her making her Pearl match something she (Yellow Diamond that is) can take off.
>>
>>8803243
Her outfit is complicated enough that all the bandwagoners will keep doing simple outfits. I think we're going to get a lot of shitty blue and yellow pearls with inaccurate storebought leotards but not a lot of Yellow Diamonds. Bandwagon cosplays usually require similar items to be easily purchased.

If you do her right, anon, you'll stand out even if there does end up being a bunch of shitty bandwagoners.
>>
>>8803243
I hope some good cosplayers go for it. It doesn't look like much but so much to fuck up and I want to see someone doing it right.
Will this wig be the next level of peridot?

>>8801914

it's not outlined in black, similarly to jasper's helmet, but it sort of looks like 80s power hair.

>>8802793
yes they were but they have been improving lately which you would know if you bothered to keep up at all with literally ANY corset blog or group. And this cosplayer doesn't need a great one they just need an alright one that isn't uncomfortable, the new hourglass corset by TT is firmly in the area of "fairly good" when it comes to off the rack corsets. I personally prefer mystic city and orchard corset, but timeless trends has been making very good improvements.

OH SHIT I forgot!
You will need to season or "break in" any corset you get before wearing it, and ideally before fitting your costume to it. This helps shape the corset to you and is an absolutely necessary step, if you don't do it you will run the risk of the corset breaking, being uncomfortable, and ruining the shape. Seasoning generally takes at least two weeks.

i wouldnt do the fan design, as it seems that she's going to get an actual crystal gem outfit sometime soon and it would instantly make your cosplay weirdly off canon. i know how you feel, though- i want to do a uncorrupted centipeetle cosplay but i just KNOW the instant i do, theyre going to bring her back in an uncorrupted way. murphy's law, sort of.

This is really tryhard and also wrong imo. Why would anyone think that the middle "adjusted" colors for Pearl and Yellow Diamond are remotely correct? YD is a bold yellow like in the undoctored screenshot, not a muddled orange. You can even see this in the few seconds before the camera zooms out to include Pearl.

Even before seeing the "adjusted" colors in this thread, I read yellow pearl as wearing a purple-toned leotard and pink socks. I don't agree with the adjusted colors seen here, but the colors are clearly filtered through yellow light here and I find it believable that yellow pearl's colors are more purple and pink toned than straight up yellow.

Her colors definitely have more of a blue/pink tint to them in that screen, which is strange considering how yellow toned she is in the other shot that isn't viewed through the communicator. Hopefully RS will release a character sheet of the new homeworld gems soon.

Tried some more color tests. I'm not very happy with how dark amethyst ended up (only one drop of blue dye is still pretty powerful, as it turns out) and I'm going to make garnet more pink/purplish but other than that they're almost ready to go. Ruby and sapphire will be more accurately colored too once I back them with colored paper. Peridot will be next :)

After seeing this i really feel like we should treat whatever's on Yellow Diamond's head like a helmet and not a wig. Styling a wig like this just looks ridiculous and it would have been better as a helmet, but styling a wig to look more like natural hair doesn't translate that much to YD

I just feel like a helmet made out of a semi-translucent yellow material with a short wig under it would look better. It's not 100% canon but sometimes you have to take liberties to translate things to real life.
>>
>>8811652
I think that yellow diamond had the right idea but just needed to spend more time on it. I don't think your idea would look good, personally.
>>
>>8811660
Do you think a helmet in general would look bad? I just really don't think a wig can look good and close to canon because of her hair shape.

I mean, her hair has the shape of a helmet. It's got a similar silhouette to the one Jasper wears, it's just pointed instead of square.
>>
>>8811642
please post a link when you put them up for sale, i fucked mine up beyond belief
>>
>>8811667
I think a helmet could be easier and less time consuming to make look decent than a wig, but I believe a wig will look better if you put in the time and the effort.

I'm this Peridot >>8799674 and I feel that the method I used for that wig would work very well for YD. The problem with >>8809434 is that the hairline at the front and back don't fit properly/weren't glued down and the hair at the sides just stops awkwardly instead of tapering into a nice point.

So basically the method I recommend is make a foam base, cover with a layer of fabric, then cover with a couple layers of wig hair by using fabric glue and got2b. If anyone has any further questions I'd be happy to answer. I also plan to make a YD wig at some point (not cosplaying her, its just for fun and then I'll sell it)

>>8811683
Sure thing. I'm hoping to open my Etsy store in like a week. What happened to yours anyways?
>>
>>8811652
>"I'm not skilled enough to make a good wig so I think the entire community should treat this character's hair as a helmet instead"
Come on, one wig that has some flaws =/= scrap the idea of making it hair. This same argument happened with Peridot's hair when she first premiered, and now it's been proven that it's hair. SU characters just tend to have insane hair, whether it's Rose's huge mane or Peridot's triangle hair. Honestly it just seems like a cop out to go 'its shaped weird so it must be a helmet'. Plus, Jasper's helmet is super shiny, whereas YD's isn't
>>
>>8811784
>>8811811
I just don't think wigs shaped that unnaturally look good. I hate how people in these threads thinking that omitting something because it doesn't translate to real life = lack of effort

Sometimes shit just does not look good in real life. We do not have the materials or technology to translate certain aspects of cartoons into reality well.

Yellow Diamond's hair REALLY does not look like hair to me. It's way too helmet-shaped and solid. I don't think Peridot's hair looks like hair either but that doesn't mean I'm lazy and don't want to put effort into shit. It just means that it doesn't look like hair to me and that wigs styled like that also don't look good to me.
>>
>>8811815
Well I mean you could certainly try to do a helmet instead if that is the type of look you prefer. My feelings about doing a helmet are similar to how you feel about doing an extremely stylized wig. I have just not seen a helmet look good for any SU character and can't picture it looking right. Would love to see examples if anyone has any though.

One problem I think the helmet method has is that it won't look like a part of your head in the way that it does in the show. With a stylized wig it has just enough of a natural look to not be totally out of place if you achieve a correct fit and hairline.

Alternatively, I do like some of the more hair-like interpretations such as the ones Gekroent has done.

Oh god, are you the same person that always whines about wanting people to leave fusions' extra eyes and arms out because it 'doesn't translate well to real life?' Just because you have weird preferences that make people look lazy and effortless doesn't mean that they just shouldn't even attempt making extra arms/unnatural wigs/etc. Helmets like in >>8803967 don't look nearly as good as >>8809434, or even natural ones like >>8806702 and >>8806694. No one gives a shit if you don't think Yellow Diamond's hair is hair- it almost definitely is. For fuck's sake, your entitled to your own opinion and all, but stop trying to change everyone else's mind by whining about it. Just keep your opinions to yourself and let people make good wigs.

Gif to help contribute to the thread, fav Opal and best arms I've seen so far.
>>
>>8811850
To be fair, the helmet that you linked was pretty shitty. I've yet to see one that's been done well because I don't think there's been enough time for most people who will do them well to do them, either because they have other things to do, or because of dropping money on materials right after the holidays, or whatever. But a helmet made out of a nice, sturdy plastic that's either opaque or slightly translucent would probably look pretty good.

I don't really understand how I'm whining but then again you seem to just be acting like a dickhead for no reason, so I'm sure it doesn't matter.
>>
>>8811890
Great, you are the same whiner. If you want to make your weird helmet, then do it and stop complaining. But don't expect others to agree with you since it's not canon, don't expect to look better than YDs who actually attempted a wig, and don't expect people to follow suit. You'll be a cosplayer with missing pieces or weird changes to your cosplay- ultimately what matters is that you're happy with it since it is your costume, but stop posting here trying to shit on people who actually try and made attempts. You're not changing anyone's mind.

It's too small and lacks interesting visual components. Yes, Lapis has a smooth gem, but if you're going to get praise for making a good Lapis gem it should have a little more to it. Real lapis lazuli is nowhere near this boring, even when it is uncut and unpolished.

it has a nice shimmer and looks better than many I guess but it doesn't look that interesting. Also it's way the fuck too small lmao

Lapis's gem doesn't have pyrite imperfections so why would you do that
>>
>>8815178
Because it would make it more visually appealing, as well as more realistic?

Look I know you're probably the redditor who made this so all the asspats you got there are getting to your head, but that gem is not great. It's not the right color, or size. It's very bland to look at. Even if it didn't have pyrite inclusions, it needs some kind of sparkle to it so that it looks like a gem and not a little lump of plastic.

Speaking of gems, I posted mine earlier in this thread and here is the most recent picture I've taken of the color tests and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how I can improve them? Right now I'm trying to get a hold of some mica powder so I can mix a bit in with each gem to get a bit of shimmer (kinda like the shimmer in >>8814803 ) but still keep them translucent. I'll also be attaching colored mirrored backing to them to eliminate the clear looking spots at the edges. Oh and the Amethyst is more purple looking irl than in the picture. Since I'll be selling these I really want them to be the best they can be so I would really love to hear some opinions.
>>
>>8815273
The way light refracts within them is weird but that's just because of the facets I guess. I wonder if the mica would help with that?
>>
>>8815283
Yeah, I haven't been able to find a way to prevent that but I'm really hoping the mica powder makes at least a bit of difference. Clearly this is why irl gems are never cut anything like this hahah
>>
>>8815273
They look really clean! One thing I can think of that would make them stand out is if you went back with translucent paints and selectively colored some of the facets to emulate the style of the artwork.
Re: mica powders, are you in the US? I got one of those big PearlEx sample packs and I'm never going to use most of the colors, shoot me an email and you can have them for the cost of shipping.
>>
>>8815298
Hmmm the painting thing is an interesting idea. I'm thinking that effect could also be achieved on its own just by having the mica mixed in there since it would then shine a bit differently, right? Anyways, I might be interested in your offer so I'll email you right now

Okay so mica powder was a failure for everything besides pearl no matter what amount I tried or how much I mixed it. Even the pink one which had barely any mica, and just ended up with a bit if sparkle, just kinda looks shitty and cheap because if it. I'm going to try to find some glass paint and see how that looks but if that doesn't work out I'll stick to my original plan unless anyone else has any cool ideas.
