A cosplay tumblr for hhhhammy & gothichamlet

This is our costume tumblr for process pics, tutorials, and completed photosets. Hhhhammy specializes in props and pattern drafting, while gothichamlet prefers the design and sewing portion. We also sew a lot and spend a generously ridiculous amount of time doing dumb things. Any questions? Just drop us an ask!

Anonymous sent: It makes me happy to see that you still cosplay homestuck ;v; being someone who's been into hs for a long time and seeing everyone come and go is very saddening. I saw your "fashionable ladies" post and it made my day. Thank you!

Thank you! :D  We still really love greying, and while we’re making plans for costumes from other series, I think it’ll be a while before we attend a con with zero homestuck cosplays.  We got into the fandom a little on the late side, and after two years we’re not quite ready to give it up yet.

Anonymous sent: Did you use Arda's Owl for humanstuck!nepeta?

Yes, we did!  The Owl is ridiculously cute and I’d really recommend it if anyone wants a wig that can double for casual wear.  Hhhhammy is wearing it here, but it fluffs out even more when it’s not under a hat.

We actually received all three of Arda’s limited edition fall line because I designed one of them: the curly Bewitched style. They’re all awesome but I’m not even going to lie; I think the Owl is my favorite.

Cosplay progress for the week!  For those who caught the livestream last weekend, this is the end result of accenting my Sollux wings with spray paint.  Hhhhammy is also working on a pair of tiny twisted Karkat wings using the same dance mesh method as the big ones, and I wasted a ridiculous amount of time making cute Sakizou nails.  Warning: don’t ever take a break to make cute cosplay nails; you won’t want to do anything else until they’re finished.

Anonymous sent: Out of curiosity, what are you using for your handmaid horns?

Most likely foam coated in a thin layer of either paper mache or plastic.  This is what we used for Condesce, and it worked out pretty well.  The only down side is that I really prefer shaping things over carving, so I’ll probably be looking into other options too.

Anonymous sent: where would you recommend getting dance mesh?

Try looking in the swimwear/spandex section of your fabric store; usually dance mesh is right around there and comes in white, nude, or black.

Mori Girl Aradia
You possess a great number of INTERESTS, most of which involve far too much nature for your computer-dependent BFF to handle.  Exploring abandoned ruins, digging up animal bones, and adding to your ever-growing collection of broken clocks features prominently on your to-do list.  You really need to invest in another train case.

Livestreaming!

Haha finally got the camera going…. we’ll be livestreaming while I work on a few sets of God Tier wings for next weekend.  Pop in if you want to watch, or if you have any unrelated sewing questions!

Finishing up the last pieces for my Aradia headdress… then working on more god tier wings for the rest of the day!  Since it’s so stationary, I think we’ll try livestreaming for once, probably around 3:00 eastern time.

I finally got around to making our AAC lineup graphic!
Friday: We&#8217;ll be getting in late and changing into Sakizou for the evening.
Saturday: Sollux and Karkat God Tiers.  We&#8217;ll also probably be changing into pajamastuck later at night when the giant wings get too annoying.
Sunday: Casual humanstuck.  I&#8217;m really excited for the mori girl inspired Aradia I&#8217;ve been putting together while slowly amassing pocket watches.  Plus Hhhhammy will be wearing a street fashion version of Nepeta.

Presenting: The Otakon 2014 JJ Log…. WITHOUT JJ.  This log was filmed by Cowbutt Crunchies, DJ McWhitey Chickenstrips, and Terieri, which explains why it’s so terrible.

I dare anyone to actually count how many times the word “JJ” is uttered in this video.

Anonymous sent: Where did you find/how did you make your dual coloured tights for the fem Sollux cosplay? Thank you uwu

Blue/red tights unfortunately don’t exist as far as I can tell, but fortunately it’s not too tricky to make your own.  To do this I bought a pair of blue and a pair of red tights from the same brand, and cut them down the center.  I then re-sewed them together using a zigzag stitch to keep the stretch in tact.

Also another bonus tights answer because apparently tumblr ate my ask: my Amethyst tights are from sockdreams.com.
