Posted part of this the other day - here are all the parts! :D
I personally think freckles work for any character. But that’s your decision. I have freckles as well (though not too prominent as I burn too much in the sun to actually go outside). I use concealer and liquid/cream foundation with a bit of setting powder or a matte compact to finish and seal it. I know it seems like a lot of makeup but it keeps it set and covers everything.
Remembering a primer or finishing spray will help it from melting or looking too shiny, as well as easier application.
That’s what alcohol will do, especially if you used something acrylic based for dying the week.
What I do is mix the paint, marker, t-shirt dye, or whatever you’re using with some alcohol (70% is what I use, a ration of 3 parts alcohol one part paint/dye or three marker inserts) and either dip dye it or gently spray it with a spray bottle.
Firstly, don’t worry about your age! There are plenty older cosplays now a days and more seem to be coming in the hobby.
If you’re looking to start cosplaying, try putting a cosplay together with “normal clothes” and doc them up. It’s a good way to easy yourself into cosplay.
So basically I had a bunch of tutorials liked/bookmarked and I wanted to consolidate them into one nice place. I hope this is helpful! I will probably make a part two later.

Helpful Cosplay Blogs
Wait. I’m on this list? I’m on this list???? I’m on this list?!
Holy fucking shit. I don’t. What.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT. I’M CONSIDERED A HELPFUL COSPLAY BLOG?!?!?! YES. YES. YES.
You know what. Some people want their cosplay to be popular or to be well known and get invited to cons.
If people follow me because I’m a helpful cosplayer to them? Then yes. Yes please. Let me be forever known as a helpful cosplayer <3
I’ve put all of the fabric painting tutorials into one big photo post.
Includes silk painting with resist (Elven Banner), free-hand painting on stretch fabrics (Jareth from Labyrinth), fake embroidery with puffy paint (Peter of Narnia), graphite transfer paper with fabric paint pens (Tali from Mass Effect) and regular Tulip fabric paint (TARDIS lab coat).
Maybe this format is better?
I’m sorry but I am not one to answer this as I already had a bad opinion on her based on an interaction at Naka-kon a year or two back.
But I believe it had something to do with Heroes of Cosplay and how people saw her behaving when the cameras were off her, or on. I’m not sure. I refused to watch it as many friends in the cosplay community told me it was a poor depiction of us. As well as an incident that happened at Planet Comicon while it was being filmed, from what I was told by friends that attended. Again, I am unsure.
I’m sure if you dig around you may find out more information from unbiased sources.
And THIS is why I don’t do interviews!!!! Yaya Han and Jnig aren’t ruining this hobby, creeps like this are! Not to sound like a narcissist, but I know I have a small following of “new” cosplayers on my page and I just wanted to warn you all about STRANGER DANGER! A REAL interviewer will NEVER ask you to take your clothes off! This is what Cosplay is NOT Consent was made for!!!!!
I would like to make it a point to say that this is not me MALE SHAMING!
Girls can be creepers too! Actually, I have had more run ins with female creepers at cons than male! So please stop “apologizing for your gender”. This asshole does NOT represent you or anyone else but himself!
"HEY SO. Just thought I’d throw a warning out there, because it looks like he’s contacted a few other deviants. If you get a message from a guy named Sean Morales, or a request to do a cosplay interview for this group https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cosplay-Interviews/364194950380432
Be super cautious. He said he wanted to interview me as a cosplayer (not about Cosplay Deviants), and then spent most of his time in the Skype call trying to get me to remove my panties for him, or do “fanservice” for him stating not to worry if “something slips”. When I (very politely) told him I wasn’t going to do that, he told me “to just lift the skirt. It’s a situation that the cosplayer do”.
Just in case he does reach out to any more of you”
