So anyway, at what point are we just gonna give up with the Homestuck threads, you guys?

Still want someone to tell me what happened to Heaven and Urchintier.

> Crunchy Cosplay List: http://i.imgur.com/QRRWqRn.jpg
- A list of suggested Homestuck cosplayers to follow and check out, as they have great cosplays and some also have good tutorials on their blogs.

- Heaven + Urchintier?
- What is your favourite Homestuck photoshoot in concept/location/theme?
- What is a Homestuck photoshoot/CMV/whatever you still kind of want to do?
- Can you ever NOT tell when arms are greyshooped?

Also I feel like one of these photos should've been mirrored.

I think the threads been pretty dead this month with all the con crunch. Having Acen, Animazement, Momocon, Anime North, Mega and Colossal all so close together means most of us are too busy getting our shit together to pop on and chitchat.

>>What is a Homestuck photoshoot/CMV/whatever you still kind of want to do?
I've wanted to do a Dancestors cmv for about a year now, but every time i try and organize it, the decent cosplayers i want to be in it either cant make the same cons or move on to other fandoms. I'm running out of cosplayers as time goes on, and i'm pretty close to accepting that it just wont get made.
Photoshoots are much more doable.
>>
>>9499374
I've been involved in like three dancestor groups at this point, and all fell through. I still can only think of like, two or three *full sets* of Alternia trolls that actually got photoshoots done and weren't just a panel thing.

Yep. I'd love to be in a full group of anything at this point, but all my old homestuck friends are moving on to new fandoms.

>>9505350
I hope there are some good photos that come out of Colossal because there was a pretty decent homestuck turnout. I've seen a few pictures on my dash that hint at proper shoots, but it's only been a day. I'm sure there are people still hung over from how hard everyone partied.

>>9499126
Damn Heaven brings bad memories.
She was in my local community.
Just memories of her at a meetup as Damara flashing her panties in a public park while playing Die Antwoords "Baby's on Fire" on loop.
It was a Saturday. There were children about.
I was lucky though, a lot of my friends were close with her and dealt with manipulation and emotional abuse.
She really fucked some underage kids by being romantic with them.

Where can I find all the Heaven drama? Searching "Heaven" in the archive isn't too useful

Heya everyone, so my local con is this weekend and I've cosplayers the same thing the past 2 years and I want to cosplay again, but that's the only cosplay I have. How bad would it be to cosplay the same HS again... a 3rd time?

IIRC it went something like:

>Heaven makes a "makeup test" post that is obviously shopped grey
>People call her out on it
>Heaven actually greys up so that she can take a selfie of herself crying off the makeup as "proof" of her grey
>People continue to call her out on it
>JJ makes attached post, making fun of her

Another

>Heaven's Homestuck panel gets canceled
>At the con meetup she starts crying and someone she knows tries to see if she's okay
>Heaven slaps them
>Heaven's roommates kick her out of her room

There's others too but they were from before I Was in the fandom
>>
>>9509761
Asking the same, I just opened this thread by chance (I thought HS was dead so I peeked in out of curiosity) and saw her name mentioned, considering I had heard there had been plenty drama about her a while ago, I figured it was her.
I met her online through another fandom way before HS so I'm pretty curious about it. Even at the time she came across as a bit messed up.

>>9511182
That's pretty wtf-inducing but I thought there was a lot more?
Idk if there's more recent stuff, I've even heard of cosplay scams under her name a fair bit of time ago but can't quite find anything now.
Are there prints of the makeup test bullshit tho?
>>
>>9511193
Just realized I mispelled her last name while browsing, I did get some info on the scam stuff. Fun times

Twerquius is such a handsome, I really wish their craftmanship was better on their HS cosplays.

>>9517650
A wonder of mediocre style choices and mediocre work.

>>9517658
This is. So off mark. In every sense of the word. That design is just terrible to begin with, ugh.

Are you new? Mookies terrible fancystuck designs are a staple of Homestuck cosplay culture.

Caliborn is pretty funny, though.

The only correlation I find between problematic faves and people who're genuinely pretty shitty is Serket fans. Not every Serket fan is shitty, obviously, but they have an absurdly high percentile of batshit crazy people who will genuinely insist that Vriska got her redemption, Aranea did nothing wrong, and Mindfangs journals were 100% unbiased.

The concept of "problematic faves" is dumb asf so really it's just "a bunch of shitty people seem to be Serket fans".

I've met two Gamzee fans who only like him because they are Capricorns. How unlucky.

has anybody had experience cosplaying Roxy Lalonde yet? I have some parts coming in the mail this week.

>>9522252

The whole group made....questionable design choices but the Karkat seemed to have fucked it up the most.
>>
>>9526307
Yeah I just...
The contrast between the ~fancy~ shoes and froofy fabric and high leg holes, and the frumpy, fabric-painted shirt is SO jarring. Even looking past the fact that it's incredibly un-Karkat and un-fuschiac it's just a terrible design with mediocre-at-best execution.

The most promising designs seems to be Eridan and Equius.

Looking closer, it's really just good because it's a palette swap of an already working design... it's not particularly Pyrope and for a minute I thought I'd misinterpreted it as being a jade Eridan.

The Vriska is just Bad.
>>
>>9526627
Mostly pallet swap or not, this is still pretty cute and reasonably clean. the streak in the wig could be a lot nicer, but everything else looks good. Azara isnt amazing, but she and this Eridan definitely stand above everyone else in terms of cleanest looking.

I was asked a while ago during Wondercon season to join this group because they couldn't find a Feferi.

Holy shit, I dodged a bullet.

Shit like this makes me sad. I've wanted to do a bloodswap Sollux forever, sketched designs out and everything, but seeing this tells me it's not something to bother with.

>>
>>9526564
>Only three people bothered to paint more than their faces

What the fuck kind of laziness...
>>
>>9528495
I give the Aradia a pass because it looks like she's wearing armsocks and is just in a shitty pose for them. The Vriska is earning a lot of my ire though, and I don't know why the Equius didn't even try, his face application looks pretty solid.
>>
>>9528509
I'd like the Equius more if they got a better wig and put more effort into changing up the outfit. We know they've put a lot of effort into other cosplays, and they seemed to listen to not doing over the top face makeup this time, so why not wear some armsocks?
>>
>>9527893
Your Jane is the best put together out of all 4, honestly. I hope your friends have improved on their everything with time, though they're certainly better than some of the first tries we've seen here.

>>9528489
Look into some current tumblr artists designs for bloodswaps (clockheart had a nice one). I'm going to be part of a couple bloodswap groups this summer and I'm here to tell you that I'm a fan of Soft Hacker Bod Sollux, and you should give it a shot anyway.
If your wig and horns are nice, sewing and outfit is clean, no one's going to be looking at your bodytype.

Good thing you're not cosplaying with them any more, then.

I might get some inspo from what others have done but I've cosplayed one of my own designs before and enjoyed it so I think I'd stick with my own work. If people don't like it then that's fine.

I kind of wish I had a group though. I do have one friend who still does Homestuck but somehow we never manage to properly coordinate our con days.
>>
>>9529781

Were you the crossplayer coming in looking for advice?

Need lipstick, and the horns look pretty meh from here, but passable. I'd also roughen up the tied together sleeve; tear the end up a bit, add blood there and to the torn sleeve of the grey shirt. It's far too clean compared to your face and messy wig.

I don't even think they're into homestuck anymore.

Not a crossplayer :|
But thanks for the advice. I knew I needed lipstick and yeah those horns were an after thought
>>
>>9561277
You've got a very androgynous face, so I understand why the other anon assumed you were the crossplayer who's asked for help in here a few times.
Lipstick will help with that, but don't be afraid to use a little more makeup (eyeshadow, thicker eyeliner, bit of blush, falsies). Vriska is a badass, but she's a hot badass.
Agreeing with the other anon about your arm, and you certainly need horns that arent on a headband covered in glue. But! This was a good start.

Any cons coming up with decent turn outs for homestucks? Did we even see any decent photos come out of Colossal?
>>
>>9567328
Ota has had less and less homestuck each year.
ConBravo in Ontario has a small meet up friday of next week, but there's never a huge turn out. It's a tiny con.

Metrocon in Florida usually has a sizeable turn out, and there are multiple homestuck themed events going on during it this year still. Panels, Promstuck, Xagave and I host the draw meet each year.

Don't really know about any other cons past that though.
I assume Dragoncon wont have a big homestuck attendance- I've heard its mostly very young kids in Atlantastuck now, though its usually a guy from NC who runs the shoots.

Is it just me or does this Vriska in particular stick out like a sore thumb?

Could it be the arm and the teeth?

It's Azara. She's the only one who has a border on her image but honestly i think she just suits vriska realy well. There are plenty of other vriskas with nice arms and teeth, she just happens to have The Look.

Any critique on my Cronus?
Also a few questions;
Firstly, I got my wig on ebay because I didn't have time to style a pompadour and it was way smaller and the hairline when way farther back than I expected hence the skin and hair showing. Anyone have recommendations for a wig that can withstand a lot of styling or any general styling tips?
Second, my horns are drybrushed felt attached to the wig with snaps. They're very light, sturdy, and despite being rushed I think look alright. Would I still be better off making clay horns? I'm absolute shit at sculpting, but if they'd look better I'm willing to try.
Third, my eye is red because I somehow managed to sleep with it open the night prior. And potato quality is because fuck instagram.
I'm still really new to cosplaying homestuck, and I'm looking for any critique I can get.
[spoiler]God after seeing the great cosplays posted here, I'm starting to see a lot more mistakes in mine[/spoiler]
>>
>>9581460
You went a little heavy with the violet. Trolls are primarily gray. Especially with warm colors if you put too much accent on it jus looks like your paint is bad

If you want to salvage your wig you could use black makeup to creat the illusion of your natural hairline blending up under and into the wig. Otherwise, arda is a good standby.

Horns look fine but it's a picture for potatoes so who can really tell.
>>
>>9581460
like other anon said, go more grey with your color scheme. accents on trolls generally look kind of bad and I think it just makes you look like a newbie cosplayer/less polished because of how often color accents are used by the shittier side of the fandom. Also get grayer lipstick because the harsh black looks super feminine. I think you could blend your contour a bit better as well, it's a bit harsh and unnatural looking. Honestly, I'm not much of a fan of the wig. I don't think a pomp really suits cronus and you would be better off getting a marty from arda instead. There's too many cosplayers that stray away from canon and it would be more refreshing to see a cronus with a canon wig.
>>
>>9581460
I'd say you did really good for being a beginner. the horns look nice from what I can see! and I agree with what the other two anons said about the makeup.
>>
>>9581505
>>9581550
>>9581663
I definitely see what you guys mean with the make up. I knew there was something wrong about it but I couldnt place exactly what. My only question about the Marty is how I would do Cronus's weird ass side burns? They look like they curl around his face more than normal ones, and the Marty honestly looks like it doesn't have sideburns at all. Would I just have to style the hair to look like them and hope for the best?
>>
>>9581689
I haven't tried it myself, but it looks like you should be able tuck the wig behind your ears and then trim the hair in front of the ears to get that effect?
>>
>>9580536

>>
>>9581460
Decent start.

Blend your contour, and also no ones eyebrows look like that. It's a smudgy mess and you need a better shape to them. With that said, the general sculpting looks fine. I'd get a new wig because he does have a visible hairline and also yours is lacking in sideburns. While you can make the transition smoother with dark make up, actually creating a hairline with it tends to look terrible.

Fins work but look cheap. I'm not a huge fan of fins-behind-ears look but it's better than petal fins IMO, but you definitely need to work on yours.

>>9581550
He has a pomp, though? Not Josuke level but it's definitely a more realistic pomp.

>>9581689
Marty is not long enough at the top for the smooth swoop of hair Cronus has. He is actually pretty long haired, and only get spiky at the back (small flip excepted) while Marty gets spiky way earlier on.

Just extend the sideburns into hairflips, honestly.

>>9586050
To be fair, I know people who eat nothing but garbage food and are still underweight because they get the filling feeling of it without getting any of the nutrients.

What should someone avoid in a Bec Noir/PM cosplay? I've seen some people say that you should extend the fur from the head down the torso like the pic to make a less jarring look, but I've seen some who are sticklers for accuracy and disagree. What are all of you guys's preferences (toony, realist, afformentioned fur placement, etc.)?
>>
>>9586921
Your post kind of sounds like you're trying to avoid using the word 'fursuit', but basically you're doing a fursuit no matter what, even if it's just a partial. Make sure your fursuit head is proportionate to the rest of your body. It'll look super cartoony and weird if you aren't careful. Check out the fursuit community on livejournal- they'll have every tutorial ever for you. Just know that you're likely going to be shaving down the fur, but don't shave at the neck. Just the face area. If you're looking to do something with no fur, check out fleecerot on furaffinity.
>>
>>9586921
Just keep it consistent. I personally hate the look of a furred head and then a zentai body - completely breaks the illusion for me. If you want less fur, go for a shorter pile and a matte zentai.

I also dislike noirs that look too clean, but personal preference.

>>
>>9581460

late reply but theres no such thing as nice felt horns. make them out of clay. for your wig just buy a cady or marty though youll have to do some ventilating on cady. dont just paint black over your hair where the wig doesnt cover it, its lazy and sloppy and looks bad because it very obviously looks like you just smeared black on your head. everyones already pointed out the contouring and eyebrows but please dont do lipstick on male trolls, it looks bad 100% of the time and is completely unnecessary
>>
>>9594322

im sure there would have been more people had the shoot not been at the crack of dawn
>>
>>9594703
Yeah, this shoot was also starting at the same time as the chessmatch so a lot of people probably went to that instead. They also had a Thursday and Friday shoot and 2(?) Promstucks but I didn't get a chance to go to any of those.

Arda wigs are fine but both Marty and Cady need to be modified to work, especially Cady is way too thick to work with just some styling and I'd even advise taking out wefts to avoid helmet hair.
>>
>>9594322
>>9594703
>>9594746
Seconding. I was part of a small group and we couldn't attend early shoots. Ran into multiple others who said the same.
The most frustrating part for me was the shoot organizer had been told there was other time options for the saturday shoot, and they still picked the early time instead. Though, considering who it was, I'm not really surprised.

Promstucks looked haphazardly planned and one of them was only for 50 minutes due to setup. Last years was alright? Not sure what happened.
>>
>>9594322
yknow, a lot of these look pretty clean? Not really amazing, but overall quality is pretty good.
There are a few questionable ones, but where are the steel gray Sollux cosplayers? There are only a couple people not wearing wigs.
I know we've said it before, but while quantity of homestuck cosplays have gone down, quality sure has gone up.

a good wig always requires work, but id rather have a helmet hair wig than a wig that doesnt cover my actual hair at all

Cute. glasses are an odd choice (not one I'd have made) and the fins are shitty, but the horns look good and makeup looks nice. Would like to see a full cosplay.

Petal fins honestly don't look good. She could do without the color on her nose, it just makes her look like she has a cold, and I'm not sure if it's just the hair and stuff obscuring the shirt symbol but the edges look messy. Love the eye makeup.
>>
>>9598575
Very generic instagram prettyface. There probably isn't a full cosplay anyway, and judging by the glasses (and lack of tiara), if it does it's probably cobbled together from stuff they found at home. Everything about this is pretty, but generic ans uninteresting. Make up, wig, etc.

My problem with it is that it's usually lazy and/or an excuse to reuse wigs (looking at people who think that all bangs are created equal, as well as Eridans using that shitty ebay wig with purple fringe), this actually takes more effort than just a widows peaked lace front so it doesn't bother me as much.

Also would it be a better idea to make paw shoes for her or just paint some canvas shoes blue? I've had a lot of experience making paws before so they'd probably turn out better than shoes but I also would like to try and stay as canon as I can.

From what I hear people are anticipating it to resemble 2012 Homestuck because of the potential coverage from Let's Plays. Of course, there's a pretty even split with respect to people who are genuinely excited and people who don't trust a word about this game's development. Either way there does seem to have been a spike in content.

>>9629475
Top of BabeVriska's blog says 'beginner cosplayer'. She has all sorts of progress shots on her vriska arm, which is incredible btw. So yeah, looks like she just started at the top of her class.

The feferi is snow-the-salt-queen on tumblr, only has bust shots up, comment says she wore her to dragoncon. She's worn non-canon looking jades, a noncanon roxy, vriska and dave by the look up it?

Knight Dave is visguard24, who posted this fullbody only an hour or so ago... convenient timing, or someone keeps up with this thread. Either way, looks great. My only complaint is the wig needs trimming.

Hiveswap comes out at 11am/2pm today, so here are the best hiveswap photos I could find. Most of the good cosplays in the tags are either Cowbuttcrunchies or Xagave's groups, so variety sure isn't there yet, but there are a few others who aren't awful.

I was the same way.

The dialog is all great, the characters are great, and the music is phenominal. Sadly since it's too short for my tastes I wouldn't recommend buying it straight up, but you may as well get what you paid for.

>>9633060
Do you think it will attract a large fandom?
(that isn't mostly made up of previous Homestucks)

>>9633149
I don't expect the game to pick up any traction until more parts are released. I expect old homestucks to do like some Joey/Jude cosplay since that looks easy to make, maybe babysitter Roxy/Claire cosplay also. The Heiress looks harder to cosplay as.

CBC and a lot of their group sold most of their homestuck cosplays, it looks like. Even some commonly used wigs, with no future homestuck plans in the works. Will there be someone to fill their spot as homestuck cosplay bnfs? Sure there are cosplayers who are active, but do they have clean tutorials and help posts now that so many people have moved to instagram?
>>
>>9642743
Although I'm sad CBC isn't cosplaying Homestuck anymore, their work just gets better and better and I'm happy to see where they're going with it. It feels unlikely that anyone could get to the same levels as the old bnfs at the peak of the Homestuck fandom. There are more than a few "big names" in the instagram community, but most of them are kids with no real work and have made it big off of musical.lys, closet cosplay selfies, and petty drama.

With Tumblr as a platform for cosplay dying out, it would be hard to replicate cosplay + advice/tutorials. You can't cultivate a text heavy brand on Instagram and FB blows for reach and sharing for anyone just starting off.

Hopefully Hiveswap will encourage some fun costumes

nonono you guys are getting the wrong impression
see, the reason why that vid has a million views is because of the youtuber playing it, and im betting only less than a third of those viewers are homestuck fans and not jacksepticeye fans

not really the wrong impression- he's introducing a lot of people to a series they likely hadn't considered interesting prior to the video. doesn't matter if less than a third are current homestucks, it's likely to bring in more NEW people.

I'm really sad it's dying out- it's such a customizable platform to show your work.
There are still a few people who do in-depth tutorials that are decent, but the difference is the kids now days aren't looking for them. They'd rather ask the same question on 6 different instagram posts, hoping someone just hands them the answer instead of doing any reading.
Instagrams multi image thing might work for examples, but again, these people don't want to read. Hell, they don't even read the image descriptions.

Youtube and videotutorials, maybe...
But I do love tumblr as a creative platform so seeing it rot is really sad ):

Help, HSCG! I'm looking for a Bec Noir/PM cosplay duo, anno ~2014 (likely earlier). They had (rather slim) fursuit heads but not furred bodies, and I believe the wings especially were very impressive. I can't remember details but I believe they either had flashy animatronics or light up parts, because IIRC they showed up in a few cosplay showcase videos. The cosplayers were never on the lists AFAIK, and didn't really do anything else as far as Homestuck goes...

be realistic, how mamy people are really gonna read all of homestuck or even grt into the fandom?
no one who watches youtubers play video games will have the attention span to handle such a long ass comic
>>
>>9644836
Most kids i've run into that are new have watched the 'lets read homestuck' videos to get them a good ways in before picking up the actual comic. If they can watch a letsplay, they can watch a letsread.

hey why do they still have the original caste members' symbols, that's pretty weird. I mean i guess you can still tell the character by the horn shape, but symbol seems as intrinsic as their name and horn shape

>symbol seems as intrinsic as their name and horn shape
I'm guessing that's why they still have the original symbol, just in a different color. Symbol is family/genetic lineage (slash horn shape), so a bloodswap is that just with a different blood color. It makes more sense than Karkat wearing Feferi's symbol.

not that anon, but...what's in canon for Vriska being conventionally hot? I have no problem believing she wears minimum makeup/what she does apply is sparse and not of the best quality or consistency. She definitely has messy-ass hair. P sure the only troll who's canonically good looking and nicely 'made up' by human standards is Kanaya, due to her fashion designer tendencies
>>
>>9646819
you're right, that makes total sense. I guess i was for some reason envisioning an AU where the ancestors were swapped too (ex Karkat's ancestor is the canon Condesce)

Not evidence for actually being hot, but Vriska is canonically wearing mascara and lipstick.

What would you recommend for good Dirk shades?

ugh

Well, obviously, but I was thinking beyond that it's hard to imagine her painstakingly applying foundation/concealer/etc. The blue stuff is for the Mindfang aesthetic, but it's hard to imagine her caring much about being coifed and applying good/lots of makeup.
