I’ve been participating in Inktober to stretch my drawing muscles so I’m going to post the ones I actually like here.

My twist on Inktober is that I only draw Shinkai or Shinkai with others so enjoy Shinktober.

Done entirely in Copics.

If you don't mind me asking, why did you decide to sell your Eridan cosplay? You don't have to answer this if it's more of a personal matter or you just aren't up to it!

I’ve worn it a fair bit and over the last year and a half+ and I’m not the type to re-wear a costume over and over.

Eridan has been sitting in my closet for a few months now so I figured it was time to pass it on to someone else who’d enjoy it.. it seemed wasteful to just leave it in storage.

I was a little sad to see it go, though.

dei-sandvich:

Would anyone like to purchase this fine costume?

$200 shipped (within Canada and US*) Includes:

Wig (lace front, purple is ventilated in)

Horns (model magic, textured)

Cape (half circle, taffeta fully lined with cotton)

Scarf (hand knit)

Shirt (men’s small)

Pants (men’s size 30 I believe, painted)

Shoes (painted, ladies 9)

Rings

Glasses

*I included shipping because it weighs a ton so shipping is a lot; if you’re local to Vancouver, BC it’ll be considerably cheaper.

Send me a message off anonymous if you’re interested. Absolutely no holds. Sold as a full set only.

Eridan has gone to a new home today! Thanks for your interest!

where did you get the wig for princess bubble gum? I've checked ebay but nothing good is coming up :c I really loved yours<3

I bought 2 of these and blended them together to make one thick wig; then I trimmed the bangs and curled the ends. It’s one of my favourite wigs now!

Good luck!

Hey there~ I just had a few questions and I guess it would be kinda hard for you to answer?? But anyway, I'm a new cosplayer and I'm 15. My city doesn't have a lot of jobs to offer to 15 year olds and I need a way to save up money for cosplay. I've been looking around for all the components and I even made a grand total. I'm hoping to save up enough money (and a little extra) for all of this. Any tips on making/saving money?

Hmmm I had a job when I was 15 so it was probably a little easier for me, but there are some things you can do…

1. Put all of your change in a jar. This is a bit easier for Canadians because our change comes in values such as $1 and $2, but even a bunch of quarters will help. It’s surprising how much can add up.
2. See if you can do something like babysitting or tutoring - you’re the right age for parents to hire you for younger kids (13-year-olds usually have trouble babysitting toddlers, for example).
3. Mow a lawn/do chores for elderly neighbours, etc.4. Consider doing art commissions for friends - or if you do crafts try selling those.
5. Ask your parents to help you shop online. You can get crazy deals if you’re based in the US - often with free shipping.
6. Plan cosplay around holidays and ask for items/money as gifts.
7. Have a garage sale to get rid of some old stuff for cash.

Also - try making cosplay mockups out of cheap fabric if you’re going to sew from scratch so you don’t waste nice fabric on silly mistakes.
