PUFF SLEEVE TUTORIAL FOR COSPLAY AND PERIOD DRESS!
Hey! There’s a lot of disjointed info out there about making puffy sleeves, and I thought it might be helpful to gather (ha) everything I’ve learned/found online in one place. Puff sleeves, more accurately known as “leg o’ mutton sleeves,” were popular between 1890 and 1906, and they’re a pretty common feature in fancy/ball gown costumes.
Under the readmore: how to draft & sew puff sleeves and tips and tricks for maximum puff! Featuring really shitty pencil-on-Post-It diagrams by me!
Many thanks to all the people whose brains I’ve picked about this, as well as all the Internet resources I’ve trawled to make this possible.
Bless the Allyson uqu
Dear cosplayers. I have found salvation at the Micheals. These are hot glue finger caps. They are fucking amazing and perfect. You can smear hot glue smooth without third degree burns. Bless based cosplay god. #cosplay #hotglue
tmirai, not sure if you’re using hot glue guns but thought this might be a good thing to share.
Hoshit these are awesome! I am usually okay about not burning myself, but worbla and the heat gun are what tend to get me. I wonder if you can use these with worbla without them sticking. Thank you! Might have to get some of these.
bluhbluhhugedork asked you: I adore the webbed gloves you made, wow those are impressive! Could you explain the process of making them if you have the time?
Thank you so much! <3 I adore webbed hands / water monsters so they are a pleasure for me to wear as well! You can see more pics and other in progress of them on this tag: http://lithefider.tumblr.com/tagged/webbed_hands
But to be honest the making of them is so simple you will have a ‘why didn’t I think of that!’ moment. I thought a while before making mine and came up with it randomly, tried it, and it looked great!
1.) Trace your hand on a piece of paper, fingers spread wide. Draw on where you want the webbing. Cut it out (and around the webbing line).
2.) Trace onto 4 WAY STRETCH SPANDEX, and cut out leaving plenty of seam allowance (you’ll be trimming them later - leave like 1.5 inch all around, it’ll be easier to sew.). Pin to more spandex and cut out the back (you don’t have to trace it twice, and you’ll be trimming it anyway so you don’t have to be precise on the cutting out). Leave it pinned together so it doesn’t slip while sewing.
3.) Sew about on the lines from your tracing. Sew using normal good thread and a stretch stitch and a stretch needle. Give it some extra, like sew about 2 millimeters outside the lines. I’d double sew it myself, for strength. If you want a frill sew it into the arm seam.
4.) Invert, and you’ll end up with a webbed glove with no finger dividers.
5.) Now cut out your actual hand from your paper tracing (IE cut off the webbing) then trace the finger lines onto the outside of your inverted spandex webbed hand.
6.) Sew the finger lines one at a time, on the outside.
7.) You’ll end up with this:
Airbrush for pretty colors if you like. Airbrush it while it is being worn BY YOU OR ANOTHER, you should paint it while it is stretched. If you have no airbrush I recommend hand painting with Dye-na-flow paints.
Let’s do this. I found all of this just by google search but I’m putting a bunch of it in one post just for you guys.

And by popular demand, a tutorial on how to make a mask! the way I do it anyway. lot’s of tape.
This can be adapted into making all sorts of mask designs
hope you enjoy (:
I picked up this cool special effect makeup book and thought I should scanned some of the cool stuff in it. Sorry if you can’t read the text. just let me know and I can just type out what it say.
Aww yeah! Look at those beauties! and guess how much they cost?
$13.00 and with plenty of supplies to spare!!!
Okay Step One :gather supplies
1: Party City fang filler beads: 2.99
2. Pencil from home: free
3. Buffer(optional): i had this so it as also free
4.Nail Clippers: also already had these
5. Drugstore Kiss 100 artificial nails(i got the plain ones because they are very close to a normal tooth color and do not require painting): 9.99
6. Thick Nail File from home: free
Step Two: fit nails to teeth
figure out what you want your teeth to line up like(for me i wanted to make them even with my own even though a lot of trolls have uneven teeth)
line them up so you can keep track
Step Three: draw shape
Step Four: use the clippers, file, and buffer to get the shape
Step Five: pour in the beads into a cup of hot tap water and microwave for about 45 seconds
i did not use the whole packet. i maybe only used half?
make sure the beads are clear!!!
Step Six: pick beads out of cup WITH A METAL SPOON and place on the back of nails and mold!
Just do that for the rest of them and your done! the packaging says to let the beads sit till they harden but i am impatient so after i had all the fangs molded in my mouth i VERY CAREFULLY removed them and dropped them in cold water for a few seconds.
NOW HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FANGS/BUCK TEETH/ WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE!
i still have so many nails left over to last awhile and a nice amount of beads to make maybe one or two more pairs
so i hope this helps for us homestucks on a budget or anyone who wants to make some fangs!
Let me take a second to talk about these things. I found them while looking for makeup for my friends Kanaya cosplay and holycrap are they amazing. These are lip and eye liner, these pencils are a two in one deal- three in one if you want to use it as a lipstick.
Oh and the best part? You get all twelve colors for $5.21. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is. You can get them here. <3
