this is great! May i ask, how do you sew the horns into your wig? I'm planning on cosplaying karkat for my local meetup and I'm still trying to figure out how to sew the horns in (I'm fairly new to cosplay so yeah :P)

I think you made a great Karkat! My #1 pet peeve with Karkats is their horrible wigs--usually not messy or crazy enough, but you chose well with this one (or styled it well!). The Cancer symbol has a really neat texture/look to it too.

you need more of a scowl on your face, but otherwise it's good.

NP, the skin tone is just perfect and the horns look awesome! How did you make them? What kind of plaster did you use?

I made the original horn out of sculpey and then used some cheap molding puddy stuff to make a cast from. Then I used Plaster of Paris to make two horns and painted them with Watercolor Pencils because Acrylic was not agreeing with me that night XD

Ben Nye is pretty amazing stuff, but not gonna lie, I had the hardest time keeping it on my hands XD
My other choice would have been Nepeta since we're closer in personality or Eridan, but I dont have a thin face to pull him off haha

Goodluck! Send me photos if you put a troll cosplay together!

Waaaahhhh, you look BOSSIN', girl! :stare::headbang: Lovin dat swag, lovin' it~~~ ;):blowkiss:
I really appreciate the fact that you shared the ingredients to making your cosplay- I'm ordering Ben Nye make-up for a cosplay and I'm sorta hoping that the color they describe IS the color they're giving me; not some darker shade or anything! :XD: ARDA WIGS ARE DA BOMB, ARE THEY NOT!?! :love::iconhurrhurrplz:
