I've been following a lovely makeup artist called Promise Tamang Phan and today on her facebook page she posted this AMAZING DIY CRAYON LIPSTICK tutorial. The notion of it sounds so crazy but the results can be AWESOME for cosplaying those characters in wacky colors. So, if you're interested, hit the link and check it out!

Going through my files and found an old tutorial (remember when I announced it?) that I never posted. It's how to create the Hyrulian Soldier/Castle Guard Helmet! So here it is! Enjoy!

Recycled Fairy Costume!
Ever wonder what to do with your old Prom dresses? Why not reuse them as a fairy dress?! ;)
~ A How-To! ~
1. Grab your old prom dress.
2. Make any modifications to the dress itself. (I lifted the front of my skirt up by safty-pinning two pink ribbons as skirt lifts on each hip.) Feel free to add tulle, flowers, glitter, or any other Fairy-esque goodness!
3. Find/buy/make a pair of matching fairy wings. Lots of Dollar Stores have them in the toy selection, or find a nice, inexpensive pair right after the end of the Halloween Season in the clearance section! ;) Or you can follow my favorite crafters, the Threadbangers, in their tutorial to make your own pair! http://youtu.be/5z20jIu7XJk
4. Makeup and Hair! Have fun with it!
Tah-dah! You just made yourself a thrifty, recycled fairy costume!
Here's a great tutorial that Funnypeculiar posted on wig dying!
The things I work on when I can't sleep... This is the first prosthetic piece that I've ever made! Woot for me! It's mostly made of liquid latex, acrylic paint, paper towels / toilet paper, and fake nails!
I need darker/thicker blood, but I'll work on that later!

YAY!!! Here's an article on how I made my LoZ: TP cosplay!!!
Linksliltri4ce: Twilight Princess Link Cosplay Costume
I came across this nice shield tutorial today for all of my fellow cosplayers! It's a fairly simple tutorial and the shield is REALLY inexpensive to make!
So I'm working on a few tutorial videos at the moment. These ones are kind of video/photo/talk-through sorts of tutorials, because I already have the projects made, and... well... quite frankly, I don't want to remake them! lol! =)
In any case, I took lots of progress shots, and the future videos will be more VIDEO-based!
Here's what I'm currently making tutorial videos on:
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Hyrulian Soldier/Castle Guard Helmet
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Princess Zelda Armor
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Princess Zelda Tabard
So here's the video that I followed to make the gemstones for my Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Spiritual Stones. I suggest just skipping ahead to 2:43 since that is the part where she talks about creating your own faceted gems. If you've never made resin gemstones before, I suggest you watch all three of her videos - they really helped me a lot!
Here's how mine turned out:

Hello everyone! I'm just a little girl with a little thread, and a LOT of hair! I love making cosplays and going to my local conventions (or any reason to go out in public with a costume!)
