Hi again. First of all, I wanted to thanked you for the advice you gave me on my Soul Eater Medusa snake arm tattoos cosplay. Second, I have 1 more question that I have to ask. I was wondering if I should use floral wire or armature wire for my snake arm tattoos?

Now you HAVE to submit a picture when it is done, because I want to know how this turns out lol.

I don’t believe there is too much of a difference between the types, except that floral wire is usually coated and is likely available at shorter lengths. It is the gauge and type/softness of the material that you really want to look out for. You will want a higher-gauge wire so it will be thinner and less noticeable and you would like it to be half-hard so that it can easily be bent into shape but will retain that shape and have some springiness. 

I suggest trying to shop for the wire in-person so you can see how thick the wire is. You may want something in the 20-24 gauge range.  

All the best,

hey guys, i’m going to be working on roadhog’s sharkbait skin in the next couple of weeks and i’m looking for some pointers. one question i’m looking for an answer to is how to make believable/realistic pierced nipples on a leotard (i’m going to buy one and paint his tattoo onto it so i don’t have to waste hours getting into cosplay) secondly, i’m looking for pointers on how to make the shark mask look the best i can. thanks a bunch!

Hmm, well with a body suit you can have the piercing go through the leotard. So you can paint or print the nipple onto the suit and pierce through it. If you want to go for more realism you could create a 3D nipple with puff paint or liquid latex or casting it in silicone. You could maybe paint a window cling suction cup if you wanted to re-purpose something into a nipple. 

The challenge with the roadhog mask is that it continues down his back. I think creating a frame or foam base for the mask would work. Then wrap it with fabric. Another option might be creating the piece from EVA/craft foam and painting it with latex or another rubber paint to get that sort of rubbery texture. 

Hope this helps,

I want to cosplay Juri Han from street fighter, but I’m a triple D. Her top is literally some fabric being held against her chest by some straps and I feel like ill need to construct some kind of hidden support? Any advice?

Some ideas:

  • Wear a stick-on bra You may need to make some adjustments to the shirt to hide the bra.
  • Wear a clear strapped / backless bra (or make your own)  You may need to make some adjustments to the shirt to hide the bra.
  • Add bra cups into the garment. Imo this doesn’t give much support unless the shirt is tight as well, but it can help prevent the boobs from slipping out. You may want to test this with a mockup and see how tight you need the straps to be to get a good hold. 
  • Tailor the garment so it fits around your breasts. Darts usually help to make a garment fitted. You may need to make the shirt wider or longer to get better coverage and a better fit. 
  • Use skin-safe tape to hold the breasts and shirt in place.
  • Wear nipple covers to prevent a slip, and let your boobies do their thing.
     
  • If you want to be modest you could wear a skin-toned bodysuit underneath. Depending on how opaque the suit is, you may be able to wear your regular bra underneath. 

Hope this helps,
