Anonymous asked: I'm sorry uvu I'm trying to make this sound like a compliment but I'm not sure if it will work.. you do such a great job as thor and the makeup and everything and you're still very pretty but still masculine looking?
I’ll take that as a compliment, thank you!! I have a very feminine face so I keep trying to improve on my make up skills for that costume. Love Thor!! <33
Anonymous asked: How did you make your thor costume??? specially the armor???
Which piece of the armor do you mean??? @_@;;; It was a very involved process for the breastplate. I used wonderflex, foam, leather, leatherette, paint, and heat n bond.
- Me: So what do you want to be for Halloween?
- Little Girl: I think I should be Thor.
- Her Mother: You know Thor's a boy right?
- Little Girl: Yeah and I'm a girl and I want to be Thor.
- Her Mother: Don't you want to be something pretty?
- Little Girl: Thor is pretty.
Anonymous asked: how do you make your perfect beard ò_ò? (sorry for the english. anyway you are one of my favourite cosplayers! :D )
hi!!! Ack I’m sorry I didn’t answer this until now.
It’s actually very simple. You can use youtube and find some tutorials I think. Just search “Stubble make up” and that should help.
I use 2 things.
1. A stubble make up brush that looks like this. I got mine at a local halloween/costume store, they should be very cheap.
2. The theatrical make up of my choice. I use Kryolan Aquacolor, but any facepaint that isn’t greasy should work. You want it to dry smudgeproof, so buy something like that.
Then I just use the stubble brush in the paint and pat it on my face where I want the beard! For Thor I used two colours, yellow and brown. That’s it! Done in 5 minutes!
captainkirkjims asked: I saw your post that you used lifts to boost you up to Zoe's height, well I'm currently 5'4" and I would like to boost myself to her height as well, mind giving me a hand?
Hey! I’m making this public since someone else might benefit as well =)
I use lifts in my costumes all the time like these (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultralight-Height-Increase-shoe-Insert-Insole-Heel-Lifts-Pads-6cm-6-5cm-3-Layers-/161046414896?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257f1d4630).
The trick is though, that you should have them before you buy your boots or whatever footwear you’re planning to use them in. Reasons being:
1. They take up a lot of room, especially if you need to use all of them. I’m usually a size 7 (38) and I bought my Uhura boots at a size 9 (though I probably could’ve gotten away with size 8.5 since the model I got for Uhura was pretty roomy). I’ve put lifts into boots my actual size before and it’s tight. I couldn’t get all them in comfortably, my feet cramped, etc, but it’s trial and error for what works best.
2. The look. Some shoes and boots just won’t look natural or work with lifts. For the Reboot shoes it should be fine because they’re flat soled. For TOS it’s a bit tricker cuz they have heels, you just have to test out and see what you can balance on.
After you’ve sorted thru that just shove all the lifts in plus a gel insert or two a voila, heels without the heels!
I used this technique on my Thor boots as well, to go from 5’3” to 5’8” by combining lifts, gel inserts, and a thick winter boot sole of 1.5”.
