And yet I still don’t have the right fabric for any of my upcoming costumes: the struggle.

Your Homestuck cosplays are amazing! I especially like the black-clothed John Egbert with the giant black n' blue hammer prop. I myself am an amateur prop maker. Any tips/advice for a fellow cosplayer/propmaker?

Awww thanks so much! That John is a design from a Black Rock Shooter AU! (Brsstuck.tumblr.com) 
Ummmmm, I’m kind of an amateur myself, but some blanket advice I guess-

1- If at first you don’t succeed, it’s ok to do it again. 
I made four different versions of my normal God Tier John, and went through three different wigs. I had three different versions of my WWII America over two years before I was pleased with it, and I still want to remake Bernard, a cosplay I made over two years ago. Learning is a long and slow process, and the fastest way to learn is by doing. As you get better, you figure out how to improve on old stuff and revamp it, and there’s nothing wrong with that!

2- Wigs are awesome.
I know not everybody is into wigs, but they can make your life so much easier, and they’re really fun! You don’t have to dye your hair or spend ages styling it each time you wear a costume, you just style it, spray it, pin, and go! That way you don’t have to “maintain” your hair to look like a character, and wigs can achieve some ridiculous styles that are basically impossible for real people to have anyway (like Yugi’s hair, let’s be real here.). 

3- Couponing and thrifting save you tons of money.
I’ve probably said it a billion times, but I have costumes (like Clock) that I made on under $30. You can get base pieces to alter at thrift stores and secondhand places like Goodwill for super cheap, and these clothes also can serve as great pattern fodder if you’re making your own patterns. I try on clothes at the store and buy ones that fit me really well, and if I’m only dropping $3 on a blazer, I feel a lot less guilty about cutting it apart and salvaging it for pattern shapes or fabric. Also the JoAnn fabrics coupon flyers have probably saved me thousands of dollars on stuff like brocades, dress satin, and suiting at this point.

4- Make stuff out of other stuff.
OK THAT SOUNDS DUMB but hear me out. You don’t have to be limited by items that are just considered to be “costume supplies.” Curtain rods and shower curtain pieces make fantastic bases for staffs and big props, (and you can make them retractable so they fit in a suitcase!), pvc pipe is super cheap and comes in tons of different thicknesses, cardboard boxes make great fodder for the bottom layers of props, and many a curtain and bedsheet have become fabric for cosplay pieces. Your limits are your imagination!  

5- Time management is really important.
I’m really bad at it though and have a terrible habit of doing things last minute, but if you get good at it, you can make more things in less time, with less stress, and have more room for mistakes and experimentation! 

6- Have fun! 
The construction process, while it can be stressful, can be just as fun as wearing your finished product! Go crazy with it! Try new stuff! Have cosplay construction parties!

Name 2 things you like about yourself, then pass it on to the first 10 people on your dash. #TeamSelfEsteem

I’m so bad at these oh boy.

1- When I’m motivated enough, I can teach myself things! Not like oh I’ll magically learn it, but I’ll watch youtube videos or pull things apart or study up on whatever it is. When I was younger, I was a self-researched Egyptology nerd, and I mostly taught myself how to use patterns and create my own patterns from cutting clothes apart when it came to sewing. I learned to knit from youtube videos, and tie a tie, and a bunch of other little things like that.

2- I like to think I’m a pretty decent cook. Not fantastic, but I think my stuff is edible.
