Hii~! You and your friends Uranus and Neptune are gorgeous! What fabric did you use on your skirts and collars?

technoranma answered:


hey thank you! My sis glayish (Uranus) sewed them out of cotton. The skirt fabric is lined with itself (same goes for the collar). Bows were cotton as well (with interfacing). Check out her write up & in progress photos on ACP here !!

Do you make your own costumes? I was wondering if you knew any templates for Satsuki's junketsu out fit, it would be a great help! Ps you're amazing :)

Ackk Thank you and yes!! I make all my own costumes unless otherwise stated (there are one or two I’ve put together from all items I bought separately or altered and there are sometimes wigs or props that my awesome sister technoranma has made for me). Satsuki was 90% made by me. The only thing I didn’t do was some of the silver detailing on the sword  my sis helped me with while I was in boot sewing hell and she also made the junketsu eyes so we’d match.

As for junketsu, I don’t know of any templates…. I think there may be an official cosmode pattern???? Not sure, but I patterned the dress and boots n stuff myself. If you’re feeling adventurous I have progress pictures I posted on my instagram back when I was making it!! I dunno if that would help at all but you can kinda see some of the shapes I used and perhaps get some construction ideas. If you’ve ever made a fuku before it shouldn’t be too bad!!! You can do it!!!!!!!!

hey! what are you using for making your eye make-up for femshep cosplay?? i love it soo much and all your cosplays <3

Thank you so much!

These are all the things I use for my Commander Shepard makeup routine!


You will see there is eyeshadow, eyeliner (liquid for upper lash line and pencil for water line), mascara, brow wax/primer, a spoolie, eyelash curler, face primer and foundation, concealer, and lipstick! I totally forgot to add the matte bronzer I use to contour my face. Oops! Well, there is that too!

The thing about the eyeshadow and how I do my makeup for cosplay:

*disclaimer: I’m no pro makeup person—I’m just someone who really loves to wear it so please don’t take my word as the only truth. These are my personal preferences only.*

For Shepard [x], and other costumes such as Fionna [x][x] or Spock [x], I used only the matte colours on the top row of that particular pallete. When it comes to cosplay makeup, I don’t like using any shimmer on my eyes (unless the character/costume requires it of course) because it reflects light as opposed to matte shades of eyeshadow that take on light flatly—uh, one dimensionally? if that makes any sense. So all that lovely flash photography at the con is gonna totally skew the way I look in pictures because shimmery sparkly eyes and lips reflect light, therefore altering the visible base colour. Then I just look like a shiny mess hahaha especially if the shimmer is duo/multi-toned with other colours or something fancy!

I hope this reply was satisfactory!

Lace Crowns — Quick Microwave Method 
makes ONE 18” crown

1/2 yard crocheted lace

  • (Also look for “Cluny Lace” or “Dyeable Cotton Lace”.  You can find the lace I used for these crowns HERE)
  • Fabric Stiffener (I used Aleene’s Stiffen Quick) 
  • Small bowl
  • Tacky Glue
  • 1 sheet posterboard
  • scissors
  • clear packing tape
  • paper plate or parchment paper
  • thin butterknife or offset spatula
  • sewing pin
  • Gold or silver metallic paint**
  • Rubber gloves
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun or a jewelry adhesive (I used Aleene’s Platinum Bond Glass & Bead) 
  • Vintage jewelry, rhinestones, jeweled scrapbook trim, etc…

Step 1:  Place lace in a small bowl and cover with fabric stiffener.  Soak for 15 minutes.

Step 2:  While lace is soaking, prepare a crown form by cutting a 20” x 4” strip of posterboard.  If using a smaller piece, cut two 10.5” x 4” pieces.  Overlap by a 1/2” and tape together on the front and back.

Step 3:  Roll the posterboard in to a tube, 17.5” in circumference, and secure with packing tape.

Step 4: Remove lace from bowl, allowing excess to gently drip back in to the bowl.  Return excess stiffener to the original bottle.  Wrap the wet lace around the base of the posterboard form.  I used a spot of tacky glue to hold the overlapping ends of the lace together.

Step 5:  Put crown and form on a paper plate or piece of parchment.  Microwave on high power for 30 seconds.  There may be some crackling sounds in this initial phase. Continue to microwave in 30 second increments (depending on the power of your microwave, you might be able to go up to a max of 1 minute increments), until the lace is dry to the touch.
Step 6:  Remove plate from microwave and completely spray the crown (while still on the form) with stiffener.  Return to microwave and microwave in short increments till it is dry to the touch.
Step 7:  Repeat the process of spraying and drying until you’ve achieved the desired level of stiffness.  For me, I found that 7 spray/dry cycles was sufficient.
Step 8:  Remove crown from the form.  You may need to slide a butterknife or offset spatula underneath to help loosen it.  If some of the stiffener has closed up some of the holes in the lace, you can easily clean it out with the end of a pin.
Step 9:  Return the crown to the plate and microwave for an additional 30 seconds to a minute.  When removed from microwave, crown should be completely dry and stiff.  Set the crown aside while you set up your paint
Step 10:  Wearing rubber gloves to keep your hands clean, paint the crown, inside and out.  Do not be surprised when the crown goes soft with the application of the wet paint.  It will stiffen, harder than ever, when it dries.
Step 11:  Gently slide the wet crown back on to the posterboard form.  Set aside to dry.  You can use a hairdryer to help speed up the process, but DO NOT return the crown to the microwave. 
Step 12:  When crown is dry, attach bits of glitz and finery with a hot glue gun or jewelry glue.  I used bits of broken vintage jewelry that I dismantled with the help of tin snips.
