Winners of AOD masquerade!
YAY FOR SEWN-IN-ONE-AND-A-HALF-DAYS COSPLAY
See this shit? This shit is about to change your life.
This packet of stuff is called Instamorph Moldable Plastic. You literally buy a packet of this shit, and you can make any-fucking-thing.
You open it up, and you get little plastic pellets that look like this.
Doesn’t look like much, right?
When put in hot water (140°F, 60°C.), these pellets melt into a kind of putty-like stuff, that you can mold into whatever shape you want.
They make the coolest cosplay accessories EVER because they’re plastic - they’re moderately lightweight, they’ll survive being dropped and banged around, and they’re waterproof. I made Nepeta horns and Meenah bracelets for my homestuck cosplays, but it can do a ton of other stuff too.
Also, the whole project takes maybe a half hour - 10 minutes to boil the water, 2 for the pellets to melt in the bowl (it leaves no residue, so you can use a regular mixing bowl and a spoon to pull it out of the water), a few minutes to sculpt and then a few minutes for it to dry into a completely solid, plastic whatever-you’re-making.
AND THE BEST PART OF THIS IS THAT THIS SHIT IS SO CHEAP
YOU’D EXPECT IT TO BE REALLY EXPENSIVE BUT IT’S NOT
I got a container on Amazon.com for $10, but here’s the actual site so you can check it out some more. http://www.instamorph.com/
SERIOUSLY THOUGH DON’T GO TO ALL THE TROUBLE OF FINDING CREATIVE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MIX MATERIALS, THIS IS REALLY GREAT.
Perfect for Con season.
I’m not cosplaying Homestuck (sorry), but I know you troll cosplayers know a thing or two about gray paint. Haha. I’m planning to cosplay Marceline at Sac Anime, but I got too caught up with school and forgot to order gray face/body paint.
Anyone know a good brand that I could get within a week or so (or now? Now is good). I have Amazon Prime, if anyone has Amazon suggestions. I know nothing about paint. Lololol.
Anywho, I’d really appreciate the help, and I’m sure I could draw something for anyone who totally nails it.
(Tumblr why you no just let me allow questions) ?
