Servant of Nocturnal by Piperonni Servant of Nocturnal by Piperonni
So my photographer's hard drive crashed the other day. I thought I was out of luck as far as the rest of my photos were concerned. However, he managed to salvage a few of them. I don't know how he did it, but I'm very thankful. This was one of the shots I was hoping to have in my gallery. I'm super lucky!

Eee! Thank you!! <3 J did most of the work, though. I just did the dyeing.

I am as well. I'm so disappointed that I didn't wear it as long as I'd planned. I'm hoping to change that at MTAC.

No problem!  I enjoy viewing others amazing cosplay works!
I dream of joining the ranks of professional cosplayers soon...  we'll see what happens!

SUHWEET!  Well i was wondering in regards to a cosplay i'm making where the character has a furry face, but the face is too thin for a whole fursuit.  As such im contemplating making a plastic mold and attaching the fur to give it a more... realistic look?
Anyway, i would like to know if you have any advice for this cosplay!
Any advice you can offer will be heavily appreciated!

I do as well. I spend most of my time on dA looking at other cosplays and their works. I'm no professional, but I have fun! And I'm happy to help when needed.

I've seen another cosplayer make a base mask, like you're thinking of doing, and attaching fur to give it a realistic look. It turned out fantastic. Here's a link to it: melvismd.tumblr.com/post/54384… I hope it helps! I've never made a costume for an animal based character, so I'm not entirely certain as to how to go about it. I think you idea of making a base mask will work, and it wont look like a fursuit. You can even make the jaw move with hinges, or even elastic bands.

Bull, you are definitely a professional!
Actually i've seen pro's who were worse than you!

Any advice regarding wig manipulation?

And thanks a lot!  I plan to have buwaro ready for comic con!  And instead of your hinge idea, since his face is pretty humanish i am going to go with latex and rubber to make a mask like Mrs. Doubtfires (god i love that movie)

Aww, well thank you. That means a lot. C: It's good to know that our hard work shows.

Wigs... not so good with wigs. I haven't done too many characters that involve wigs. I can saw that, as far as spiking goes, use Got2B glued hairspray. It has an amazing hold that will last. There's another user on here that is phenomenal with wigs: ~Malindachan. Check her out. She has several tutorials for spikey haired characters that are sure to help.

You're welcome. Happy to help. C:
Ahh! That's a brilliant idea! I have yet to work with latex, but I hope to in the future. I wish you the best of luck!
