New Undertale thread!
Previous one >>No.8804783
So anons, how are your cosplays coming? What cons are you all going to wear them to?
And just how deep does the bad MTT cosplay go?
Oh woops link to old thread is being a dope.
There's the old thread. Also anons I have seen a lot of bad undertale cosplay... a lot of bad MTT's especially. But I think what gets me the most is the bad Sans cosplay. I've stared into the void /cgl/, and the void stared back... with this.
>mmr mpffmrr the great Papyrus mm mrpf mhmh SANS
I wish I could hear.
I went looking for a pet peeve of mine to stay in line with OP: people who just take rando Halloween skull masks, or people who do "skary skeleton" makeup for Sans.
I think I dislike facepaint just a tad bit more.
Yeah, these guys were pretty on point. Papyrus in particular.
i want to see an A++ incredible papyrus accompanied by a completely low effort sans
Alright, I'm going to need more help/opinions on Alphys (I've posted some WIP shots a few threads over). I'm not sure about the eyes. I've got two styles made up right now, neither are fixed at the moment. Which one looks better?
Personal preference to the small ones, but someone liked the big ones better...
Hoping to do a Frisk and MTT duo with my buddy later in the year, mainly for skit potential. Buddy can rock the MTT look (he's done cosplay in heels at least three times already), but I just hope we can pull off the makeup crisply.
Also I wish Death by Glamour wasn't such a complex song, it's hard to find a good remix under 2 minutes.
Anyone got any ideas for a prostetic that could be used for Asriel's final boss version? This prostetic discussed last thread probably works great for Asgore or Toriel but it looks too bulky for Asriel somehow. I would like a more slender one.
You could take a shot at cutting it yourself. I'm planning a skit to Hopes and Dreams/Save the World, so I just cut the pieces of the songs I needed to make a mix under 2 minutes. I used a program called Mixpad Multitrack, its free and really helpful.
Currently working on my sans. The mask is still super rough but I'm rather pleased at where it's going. Trying to get that right balance of realistic looking/cartoony is difficult. Any concrit/suggestions is welcome!
I think probably the only undertale gijinka I like so far. I really adore the body pillow.
yeah I'd lean towards the bigger eyes myself. Looks good so far though!
That sounds like it will be super cute anon!
You could try casting your own. If you're any good with clay and have a spare facemold about there are plenty of tutorials floating around.
Otherwise I'd think the ones last thread would still look pretty good for Asriel.
Good job so far anon! I really like the shape of the head you have going.
would it be wise to just wear a tighter black shirt under? that way no skin shows through?
We had an Undertale group at Ohayocon this past weekend. It was a lot of fun, despite me not being that big into the game. I was Alphys!
Sadly we had no goats but, we had most main characters.
this is the only burgerpants cosplay I've ever liked ngl. they're really good at facial expressions
Sleeves are hard so far and make me cry. That or I've just done so much knitting that my fingers are cramping up.
Got lucky and snagged her about a year after her release on clearance at Fred Meyers. I got most of the 13 wishes set, just missing Abbey.
And its not so hard. But this and the body have taken a lot of knitting and a lot of stitches. Hoping to be done with this sleeve in about a day or so.
Yeah, I was thinking that casting my own prosthetic might end up being the best way. I'm on a pretty tight schedule tho, so ordering a readily made one would have been better time-wise.
If I ever end up doing anything, I'll share my progress.
Everything went wrong trying to make this less than one minute tutorial for attaching sleeves to the body of a Frisk sweater so here's what I ended up with!!!
The stitch decrease tutorial is still images. I'll post it in a minute.
Ugh I've got a Chara sweater to knit up after this, part of me is half considering putting together a tutorial for that one since I've seen enough anons in here saying they want to knit their sweaters but dont know how.
Yeah, I was having trouble with just starting the sleeves. Had to do the ribbing on double pointed needles then move it onto the circular after two rounds of increase.
And man anon if I run into you at any of the cons I'm going to this year I am just going to have to gush about how helpful you've been!
Man I wish I knew how to knit, the Frisk sweaters I've been seeing here are pretty great. Are there any alternatives for someone like me or should I just learn how to knit and try to make one?
I'll do it then as soon as I finish up my frisk sweater! Which should hopefully be soon.
Well anon I'll start a tutorial pretty soon on it, I'll post it in steps since the sweaters take a while to make, but if you want to knit it up I suggest getting some cheap yarn and needles and practicing the basic stitches (knit and pearl) you can find video tutorials for those online really easily!
I wanted to try News Metatton but not sure how
Red suit on a box is simple but should I add the desk?
a microphone with the MTT logo on it may be a good idea. box mettaton is already pretty bulky and adding something that huge in front of you may make it even harder to get around. i look forward to seeing your cosplay though!
Would people prefer to see a Fuku Fire done like Flame Princess or more like the Grillby's that are popping up?
does alphys wear pajamas under her lab coat? because sometime in the game she mentions that she's eating ice cream in her pjs, but the sprite has the lab coat. is th dot dress just more recognizable?
She's not wearing the dress under her coat normally but we don't actually know what she is wearing under it normally so you can just do whatever seems appropriate or keep it closed all the time
No. God no. No matter how airy your dress is, it's always hot. So very hot.
Take it from me. I had to constantly take the head off to breathe and stop a lot to rest. It's always the head.
Have a handler with you to carry your water, because if you have grabby claws like I did, you ain't holding shit. I had to get a long straw just to drink if I was in suit.
depending on how much experience you have, consider doing box mettaton. If you are dead set on EX, dont be lazy. do a lot of makeup tests, be careful with choice of materials, wear proper undergarments. Make sure that burgerpants is stylistically consistent with mettaton like same style of makeup
Haha, alright. My gloves are as tight as they can get for fleece, so I can at least use my hands, but I'll keep the straw in mind. I'm going to test how breathability is beforehand.
Yeah breathability isn't easy in these things, unless the mouth is permanently open wide.
My Alphys has a hollowed out snout and the nostrils are a mesh type so I'm gonna install a fan eventually. Just gotta find out how.
has anyone been able to do the nose right for undyne?
My Sans cosplay. Please don't be too harsh, I am drunbk. xD
I'm glad this picture came to be because I'm struggling to choose what kind of collar to do for my edgy Asriel.
Which collar-type do you guys think is better? Goddamn game-sprites are so small and kinda messy.
I'm hoping to get Sans done for a few months time, I've got everything sorted and made except for the head. I've been racking my brains trying to figure out how to make it as all the tutorials have been using the pumpkin pail method, and I live in the UK and getting those is extremely limited. I found one on taobao that I could possibly get but no idea what shipping will be like with an agent as I've never bought from there before!
Any other Sans who didn't use the pails, what did you use? I have some chicken wire mesh I was thinking of using and then paper mache/filler but my skills with using chicken mesh is pretty low.
I have the stuff to make mine but haven't yet. I'm going a paper mace route with round balloons (actually round, usually used for weddings) and masking tape to create the shape. I'm going to paper mache then paperclay over that. Then you just pop the balloons, pull them out, and cut the holes before detail finishing the outside.
I didn't think of paper macheing over balloons, that sounds like a good plan!
I'm impatient as fuck when it comes to paper mache but I guess if I start asap I can work on it in sections whilst working on my other costumes.
Her tests ended up looking better than the final.At least in this pic I've found
>happens memorial day weekend
>undertale wasn't released until 2 weeks later
>hunt through local con tag on tumblr
>oh god no
>it somehow got worse
i agree with the other anons- this makeup is great for mettaton. i cant say much for the costume, but the makeup is a good mix of masculine and feminine- plus, no weird two tones lips; the grey lips are nice.
Now I'm questioning doing two tone lips for my mettaton cosplay. I did a costest a while back with that kind of makeup. I thought it looked nice at first, but now that I think about it, I'm not sure.
I think the top lip might be painted slightly darker than the bottom one but it's nowhere near the pitch black upper lip, white bottom lip combo that most Mettatons do.
It gives it good definition without looking too stupid or out of character.
i mostly found it funny because someone did an edit
...and this is their most recent photo. i refuse to believe this was a thing even in the 80s.
Dont let other anons discourage you too much anon. It seems around here there is a preference for not the two toned, but if you like it and think it looks good then its your cosplay. Just ya know, do it well.
Eh, my problem with the two-tone is that there's no canon basis for it. It probably wouldn't look as weird if he actually had a darker upper lip or something.
Pitch-black lipstick looks weird as well though.
I'm just doing a dark grey metallic lipstick. I feel like people are putting way too much thought into this.
working on finishing mettaton but I just can't figure out the chest piece
what do most people make theirs out of?
I want to try making it like a full torso piece that wraps around and has shoulder support.
I haven't started on anything so I have no idea how well this will work, though.
Sort of like pic related? I'm having a hard time finding an artist who does it like I want.
a great mettaton turned into one thats indistinguishable from the others 8000 makeup tests. why do people insist on the two toned lips? mettaton's sprite shows that he has full lips, but there's no color to them. >>8831718 is great because there's still definition but there isn't a solid color
>your opinion is different from mine
>SO SALTY YOU BITCHES
ALA gathering-running anon here! I'm going in my Mettaton EX (surprise surprise) and might slap together a King MTT neutral end variant so I can have an extra layer in case shit gets cold. I'd love to say hi to other seagulls
that would be fun
>I'm shy af but hell I'd go
The EVA foam mats I've used had a textured and a smooth side. I've also ordered some that was completely smooth on both sides. I don't have experiences with smoothing it out, but if you're talking about a diamond pattern you'll probably be out of luck with Plastidip. Attaching a picture, if your texture is any rougher than the Worbla, don't bother trying and try to find a smoother mat.
I use yoga mats all the time for parts of cosplays and the smooth side is what I work with, the textured part is always the back of armor. Just Gesso it and sand it once you've shaped and youre ready to paint it
Remember don't use the diamond side or you'll end up like this.
I feel sorry for you. Some of the request are painful/ cringeworthy. Especially the non-spoiler one.
I dont know how to feel about this guy. I mean his cosplay is good, but overall he just seems very attention-whore-y and suffering from special snowflake syndrome.
He's also 17 and claims to have been cosplaying for 7 years.
this is my oc mettatonka he's exactly like mettaton but yellow and also made of tonka tough steel so he's actually better than mettaton
what is a fake-boi? like someone who pretends to be a trans man to get fangirls?
yea, if we're talking steven universe, sardonyx could be this person's spirit animal too. it's almost...i know fans usually flatten out a character a bit in their minds eye and i think that has happened here a bit.
is napstabot/maddummybot an oc?
I guess you could say that, yeah. I dont think all fakebois really refer to themselves as male or trans but theyre all some level of nonbinary I guess you could say. Like they dont identify as a boy or girl but still dress like a cute boy to get fans/follows/likes/whatever.
Yeah that's what put me off. I relate to Mettaton a lot too but this guy seems to be doing it on a very shallow level and upgraded it to a kind of kin. Granted, I don't know anything beyond what's in the thread.
Transmen get asspats on Tumblr like crazy, especially if you still look girly because something something patriarchy or whatever.
That's why the fakeboi thing is so prevalent, plus it's really easy for a girl to fake it.
Not same anon but I think thats them?
>claims to be Mettaton
>thanks fans while showing a blue dildo with "Sans" written on it
nah girl you're just thirsty for fictional dick just like the rest of them.
This has always confused me, what exactly is faking it? When Im not wearing lolita, I usually dress/style myself like a guy because that, too, makes me happy. But I don't claim to be trans or a boy...are there really people on tumblr doing this for followers? I don't really go there, so I genuinely don't know, but wouldn't that be super against all of the sjw shit they're known for?
does anyone know what happened to that one sans genderbend with pigtails and booty shorts drawing someone said she was gonna cosplay? think she made it by now?
its weird, mettaton is like the one character that a half-naked attention-whoring genderbend would suit but i haven't seen anyone even try
every time i see trans men mentioned on tumblr it's because somone's complaining they're sexist evil truscum, lol. guess its different in more cosplay-heavy circles.
I do the same thing. I like to wear masculine clothing and even a binder sometimes just for the clothes to fit better but I wouldn't call myself boy or trans. The furthest I would go is to call myself a tomboy if even that.
It's hard to explain what faking it looks like but it's pretty easy once you see it.
Usually they just cut their hair short and put something about pronouns in their description. They make no actual effort to pass as male, they have no desire for hormone therapy or surgery, but they get ridiculously triggered if you dare call them a girl.
Because then they can make a huge rant about it and get 6000 asspats from their followers.
I guess the biggest sign is by how much they blow things out of proportion.
yeah, i feel like tumblr unfortunately dips into 'is girly=is a girl' gender stereotype a bit too much. like when steven(from steven universe) wore a dress for a concert and fans started calling him trans, when in reality he just recognized that a dress is just a piece of fabric with the ability to make you cuter
Ideas for the yellow circle on Burgerpants' shirt? I'm thinking name tag but what name to put on it?
Anon you replied to, back again. This is really sad/hilarious. You'd think a community that wants to be known as being really PC and accepting wouldn't try so hard to reinforce gender stereotypes to the point of wearing them like costumes. No wonder they get shit on so much.
Oh well. Thanks for all the replies though. Sage for getting OT
I'm probably gonna put "B. Pants" on my tag when I get my own done. "Burgerpants" is another option if you can possibly fit it into that tiny plate.
hot new costests
"Im really feelin it right now!!
Underswap Napsabot test"
what the fuck is underswap. I cant keep up with these kids and their aus.
underswap is a thing where all the roles of the characters are swapped. so mettaton is the shy ghost and napstablook is the star, as a spooky dj.
storyshift is a much better swap AU. people should cosplay that. https://www.reddit.com/r/Undertale/comments/41d2on/storyshift_what_dont_you_poke_around_every_house/cz1f6gq
I was thinking B. Pants too! I was just wondering if it's a bit too self-referential, for lack of a better term.
Was toying with the idea of something cynical in his spirit, but can't think of anything that isn't trying too hard. I shouldn't be so concerned with a damn name tag.
Good idea. You can also write something a bit degrading on the tag if you think that BP's and Mettaton's hate for each other is mutual (e.g. "loser" or something like that).
Those cheekplates look weird imo. They would look better if they were more to the side?
Lmao he was young and needed the money.
Thank you anon. The reason why I asked for pose requests ahead of time was so I could weed out the extra-cringey ones and not call them ;D
Would everyone prefer the ALA undertale /cgl/ meetup be at 2 or 2:30?
Damn, I feel real similar in the "stalks other MTT cosplayers to see who gets the most compliments and who general fandom seem to like the best even tho it's totally unhealthy" thing but hey, at least I'm not a mediakin. :B
I think that's relatively normal if you cosplay for perfection.
As long as you're not personally going after people, there's not much harm in it, I think..?
But yeah that dude's nuts for other reasons.
Tempted to add something like this to the zentai suit i wear for my Papyrus.Don't know if it will turn out great and need it by saturday for ALA. should I go for it?
Have I got a gold mine to share
Shes then moved on to maximum edge
And now hubby and kid are involved
I dont even know, prime to photoshop I suppose
kek, she was being honest in the first part. obviously she reads this, but isnt brave enough to directly respond to criticisms about her, so..: invest in better makeup. apply more than one coat of face paint, it's patchy in nearly all of your 'tutorials'. and for the love of god, stop doing inaccurate 'makeup tests' that you clearly have no intention of following through with. if your paint and wig is nowhere close to what the character looks like, maybe you shouldnt be trying to teach others.
>4chan can b rly gr8 when itz nice but wen its mean it hurts ;///
Also if you don't care and don't do it for attention, don't write a bloody essay about it. Better not to acknowledge it anyways because what are you proving by doing so anyways?
Yeah, way to defend yourself. You seem like you're 13.
maybe we just got a sneak peak for her next makeup tutorials, anons!
sharpie might run, depending on your fabric; maybe a fabric paint like jacquard? Tho I guess acrylic could also work in a pinch? if brushwork is too tedious, maybe do the outlines/detail work in a fabric pen or an acrylic marker pen first...?
2:30 it is! We'll know to find each other when we say yes to the question "Are you here for the seagull roost?" (or something)
Honestly, attention-seeking doesn't bother me, it's the people who lie about it.
This whole hobby is heavily based on attention. I'll straight-up admit that I wouldn't even bother cosplaying if I didn't get my ass swamped with photos every convention.
We're all attention whores, just don't bother denying it.
My main beef with her is slapping up makeup tests and just cramming up the tag. Undertale seems to be a huge target of this, so anyone who does it more than once is going to get shit on.
Effort, really. Although a lot of cosplayers can't really do that weird shape correctly and you end up with a peanut head. I'd take perfectly-round over that.
Poorfag 13 yo homestucks can afford proper paint. But THE cosplayer of sweden doesn't? I find this hard to believe.
If you want to give tipps first get proper materials. You are NOT HELPING beginners with recommending shit products that also mess up your skin. And help is what tutorials are about, I thought. Not attention.
Yeah, I'm with you.
But this lady really is pretty pissy in general, pretends to be friends with people who, god forbid, cosplays the same character as her.
If someone else posts, you bet she shoots out about 5 re-posts of her makeup of that character with captions that isn't really that relevant.
If someone questions it, it gets erased quicker than Sans appears out of nowhere.
What's the best way to go about making Mettaton's chest plate? I've always drawn him with it being a solid front piece, but I've noticed that a lot of people draw/cosplay him more like it's part of his top that just wraps around, if that makes sense, like pic related. I've already cut out my chest piece in a solid front part but I can redo it if it will look better/work better.
I actually tried to have an understanding for badly made Mettaton cosplays until I saw this.
I'm so disappointed and surprisingly angry.
>Transparent blue dildo
I don't know what's worse; the pictures or the asks and responses.
>autists dressing up as their favorite undertale characters
Literally MLP 2.0
Just think about what happens if this person can get a partner to do this with them. The fucking horror
lol you missed the couple who sexually roleplayed as chara n sans, they posted a couple threads back
Jesus christ. I don't hate myself enough to go and torture myself by reading it. I've already suffered enough
On my last flight the three pieces became one. Will I finish in time for Saturday on ala? Lord only knows but ala folks will probably see me knitting in the reg line as soon as I get there
I've managed to redo the eyes with better material, finally. Threw most of my outfit on to see if it looks alright together. Please ignore that neck flap situation, I'll tackle that next. I'm sure I'll discover more shit to do when I get to it.
Looks great! Do you have the entirety of Friday to knit or will that be preparing-for-con-time?
I found those hot and I don't know why. Think I'm going to kill myself tonight.
Selfposting a napstablook I made for a friend. It was my first time working with foam, so it isn't perfect, but it was fun to make!
The tears are removable and are supposed to be rolled out of the slit under the eyes by the person wearing it.
I saw this recently and thought it might be a cute idea for anyone that wanted to cosplay as Monster Kid.
You have inspired me, anon. I was really set on not cosplaying undertale but I love this design. Hopefully it'll come out nice enough where I don't look like Undertale trash. (You know, the tumblr fans.)
update on fakeboi mettaton
kek i wonder why
idk, i feel like plastering your entire torso with paint is too much effort for one attentiionwhoring tumblr pic even if you dont have tits
fuckin bankrobber sans
Hey that's me (Nicecream)
