Cosplayer Thel Phenom > Costume of Porrim Maryam from MS Paint Adventures / Homestuck
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The dress was made with a pattern that was originally meant to be backless, but I modified it because I refuse to paint my back. The symbol was made with Heat-n-Bond applique. The tattoos were painted onto armsocks in order to avoid having to paint them on individually each time I cosplayed her, and to try to keep them uniform looking. The tattoos on my chest actually were painted on, however. The piercings are all fake; the lip one is a spring-loaded fake lip ring, and the eyebrow ones were originally spring-loaded, but I cut that part off with wire cutters and stuck them onto my eyebrows with eyelash adhesive. Even in strong winds they did not budge.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I had the pleasure of cosplaying my favorite Dancestor. I don't think I make the prettiest Porrim, but I still wanted to pay homage in the best way I know how.
