Another hiatus for the show, anyone working on anything new?
Predictions for new characters/designs coming soon (a fully formed Amethyst, other Pearls, eventual Yellow Diamond appearance) and who is interested in cosplaying them
>Predictions for new characters/designs coming soon
I'll be surprised if we don't get a new Peridot design before the end of the season.
Idk I saw it in the tag and thought it was pretty cool.
Unrelated, it looks like there's more Yellow Diamond attempts popping up.
posting some stuff from the tag to give this thread some content
checked her blog, haven't seen any progress yet, but still holding out hope. she would be a great jasper if she has enough costuming knowledge
also posting my favorite jasper
The finish on the limbs looks really nice! I'd recommend that she wear shapewear underneath the leotard/tights to smooth over the lumps at the leg holes, but otherwise the greens look nicely matched (maybe barring the fingers, but they might look better as part of the completed cosplay if they match her wig).
>or did you mean the Steven in Sadie's outfit
sadly she only has selfies up right now, it looks like. she's a cute sardonyx though, i hope the rest of it turns out nice
Let's talk peeves. I'll start:
> People who use a disgusting muddy/grape jam/dark purple shade of body paint for Amethyst when she's clearly a soft lavender shade
>People who cosplay Jasper or Amethyst and use white/silver/grey wigs
>Endless lazy Stevonnies who don't bother wearing a wig or even having accurate shorts/turquoise top for her
> Random white sundress/formal dress/wedding dress Rose Quartz who have done no kind of modification to make it look like her actual dress
>painted on gems/visor
>uneven clay gems (I don't think I've seen one good clay gem)
>unstyled rose wigs
>flat white pearl face paint
>flat face paint in general
>peridot wigs that are flat in the back. looks like a fan
This Steven oh my god, what the fuck so fucking cute, jesus christ.
ive got you, anon. this is one of the few adult stevens that actually still looks cute
It looks good it just doesn't look like enough room to cheat a nose. I'm guessing it's more dimensional then it appears. I appreciate a prosthetic or mask no one does them for fusion they just paint them on.
It would be really lazy for one thing. And for most, lapis and rose (and old pearl design) aside, you really don't need to do anything because their outfits don't appear specifically feminine or masculine. It's just the body shapes that make it seem like they're feminine. Just go off of canon unless you're too insecure, in which case who the fuck cares you're already dressing up as a cartoon
i'd rather see a good crossplay then a 'male gem' look into padding and makeup and just cosplay one of the gems as they are- the good thing about all the different bodies on the show is that you have different choices to make based on if you're thin, short, fat, etc. or if youre too insecure to do that, just do one of the male humans.
i think it could look nice if they added a fake pregnancy belly on top of their stomach- it would look better if the really big rose cosplayers did that rather than her normal form, since she does look bigger while she's pregnant than she does normally.
The wig isn't terribly off, but the apron needs to be more royal blue
IMO the colors are hard to find, so people just get lazy and pick what's easy (tomato red, bright blue). I can count on one hand the number of cosplayers who've done the right colors for Sapphire and there are MAYBE two who've done Ruby's well.
oh god plum amethysts are the worst
that peridot is lazy on a new level
>cardboard leg enhancers with no clean edges
she looks like she had potential to be a qt peridot. even with a rounder face.
They're far and few between but there's a handful that are better than others.
And this is the next best thing I have saved after the other two. After that it's tomatoes all the way down.
Yeah I get that she was trying to mimic the lump notboobs the gems have, but she went a little extreme. Her Ruby's mismatched face/arm colors and the weird brown/purple choice bothers me too, but ignoring those details they're a pretty good pair imo.
I worked on dyeing my amethyst wig today, what do you guys think of the color? Maybe a couple shades darker?
i found i could like sardonyx if i didnt think of her as a gem. she doesn't really have the gem feel to her design, but if i distanced her from the rest of the gems she's just a cute magician. i still don't see how pearl and garnet add up to her, though
i separate peridot's clothes into leggings, tank top, with the black shorts on top for ease of changing into and using the bathroom (taking off a whole suit to use the bathroom might smudge paint on it and stuff like that) but honestly, you can get green leggings on ebay for like six dollars
why would they cut them? i could see teasing them to add some poof, but they don't need to be trimmed
yeah, i'm not one of those people who knows all the famous cosplayers. as far as i know she's just another tumblr kid, so if there's like a history of this specific cosplayer doing this FIRST!!1!1!!!111! shit, i'm not aware of it.
exactly, it just doesn't make much sense to me. like amethyst and garnet making sugilite is something i can believe because it's garnet's tough attitude and amethyst's playfullness alogn with stubborness that make up a big part of her personality. same with every fusion they've shown on the show. except sardonyx. cool quiet garnet and stiff somewhat serious pearl making this giggly showoff? i don't think so.
pearl's a total showoff, though. she contributed all the backflips to opal . also she was literally made to be looked at, so if you give that a positive spin you get a performer.
what is going on with that wig?
why is the quality so bad..... here, I found the original
i think jasper can be hot if you find huge, aggressive people hot. but her being hot shouldn't take priority over her being aggressive and violent. >>8678228 did a good job on that balance because she looks arrogant and attractive, but the attractiveness takes a backseat to posing in a confident way. also the waist and ass shoop in >>8681150 kills me because of the way the hair is weirdly making right angles to stick to her body
>she was literally made to be looked at
In "Back to the Barn", Peridot refuses to accept that Pearl could build the machine the gems need to get to the center of the Earth to stop the Cluster because back on Homeworld, Pearls are little more than "status symbols".
>"You're an 'accessory' - somebody's shiny toy!"
i guess when yo usay it that way, it makes a little more sense
i still just don' like sardonyx hough. she's just... off. she doesn't fit the flow of the show and i'm glad she hasn't shown back up yet.
Horrid, no points to Bananarama Citizen section #4.
i think most people dont like her outfit bcause it is a bit too human-themed. but it only seems human themed because it draws from the past instead of the present, where winged eyeliner, magenta and illusion necklines are neutral and this show will look hilariously stupid in 20 years
actually now that i think about it, opal would make more sense as garnet/pearl and sard would make more sense as pearl/amethyst.
i think a big part is also sardonyx got so hyped up (at least on tumblr) and it got me excited for a sweet new gem and then i got... that thing. this annoying ugly design showoff creature that just bothered me the entire time.
whats with all these try hard edgemasters in the thread lately. we're here for cosplays and not fandom drama
>i still don't see how pearl and garnet add up to her
The same way Amethyst and Garnet make Sugilite: Ruby+Amethyst. So I guess, Sapphire+Pearl. Maybe Sapphire was an entertainer, and Pearl is just showy.
that's not how it works though. garnet is one person. it isn't just ruby, it's ruby and sapphire mixing to make a seperate personality, garnet, who mixes with amethyst. ruby and sapphire both equally contribute to each fusion.
isn't she, yo uknow, friends with a convicted pedophile though? that she defended? idk about anything concerning her unil about 5 minutes ago but that alone seems like a good enough reason to hate someone.
i feel like maybe i'm the only one that doesn't like the bottom jaw on this.
i mean it's relatively easy to make fake skin, especially in such a bright color as opposed to trying to mach your own skin tone
it just looks too much like they slapped fake teeth under their chin. it throws off the rest of the cosplay which is rather amazing.
i'm hoping eventually someone uses furry tail moving robotics to make arms that move around
i think arms that are attached with fishing line like pic related are more convincing than robotic arm movements would be- robotic movements would be nowhere near as fluid as a real human arm would be and moving on their own while your own arms aren't moving would be kind of weird
So this is what we ended up with. Sad that the person with the perfect body for Jasper doesn't know how to cosplay...
Cute family. Also this little girl does a better job with keeping her body paint clean then most cosplayers at conventions...
oh my god.. what? is that a life preserver with some duct tape for the black collar? I'm so confused about so many of these choices, not to mention so disappointed. i would personally make a cosplay for her, since she could potentially be so good
if this was some random person's last minute costume id understand a little more, but her post got pretty popular on tumblr so i was hoping at least one person gave her some pointers on body paint, clothes, etc. you could easily make jasper's outfit out of leggings, tank top, and some scrap fabric if you wanted to go the easy route. i guess i was getting my hopes up- it's just a real shame since she has the perfect body for it.
i mean yeah they look decent, but i guess i'm just wishful. i almost feel like i prefer the arms hanging down lifelessly to the arms just moving the exact same as the real arms. both look off to me i guess.
plus idk, i've seen some robotic tails that move pretty fluidly like a real animal tail.
There's a big difference in the kind of motions in a tail vs. arms. They'd literally need to be puppeted by a second person and carefully choreographed with the person wearing the costume. Even in the show the spare sets of arms often don't really do much.
Not really last minute she posted awhile ago she was going to do it. As much as you all want to whine about it the best Jasper is going to come from someone who ties all the elements together not just have the ideal body.
I liked this Ruby's color (The wig, not so much) Their costumes were well made and they were pretty cute.
normies making peridot costumes is always great
I was wondering if anyone has done/started a Laser Light Cannon yet? Does anyone think it would be a neato prop to have/see a Steven cosplayer with?
I really want to make one, but I'm not too familiar with props outside of woodwork. Any tips or ideas on where to start or what kind of materials I should be working with?
this is so cute. also a little sad that this family of (im assuming) not regular cosplayers are better at color matching than most. the rose wig is simple but pretty, i like the color. also, lion dog=10/10
Am I able to pick at a Peridot cosplayer's brain for the wig?
Im going to do the foam base, but I'm at a loss as to what type of foam to use. Also our local range isn't the biggest and best. I was just wanting to ask what you guys personally prefer using when constructing your wigs?
"peridot cosplay" tag
The visor itself would have to be done well in order for that to "be done well" I would think. I dunno I'll try it out once I start mine.
What is Google.
While it could make sense; her eyes kinda disprove that theory. But I can understand why given she's never acted like its a visor (removing it, adjusting) but at least they're trying to understand how it works I guess?
I am 99% sure her gem is just clipping through her visor. With gems being made of projected light, their clothing doesn't actually need to be tangible and her visor regenerated with her so like Garnet's visor it's technically a part of her body.
wait sorry, i didnt read all of thay through before i replied. being tired on here isnt good haha
but i meant to say that since the visor is part of her projection,she could just put her gem on top of her visor. i dont have the caps on me right now, but this isnt the first time theyve shown her gem to be on top of her visor
I really don't think that it's on top of her visor, it's just that on her forehead the visor is flush against her skin. Her skin covers the facets on her gem and the curved bit sticks out beyond the visor.
it's not an animation error though- it's in every episode and her reference art.
then i feel its a terrible design choice. it doesn't make sense that her gem wouldn't be attached to her skin like literally every other gem we've seen.
now i'm desperate for an episode where peridot takes off her visor, or maybe its explained that the visor doesn't come off.
still tbh the gem being on the visor looks really dumb, and i have not seen a good peridot cosplay that has the gem on the visor. it's a really hard thing to translate to a cosplay because of how hard it is to make a visor that is as close to your skin as hers is.
I really like the shape of this wig base so far. I feel like if she lays the fibers right it could be the best Peri wig. The rest of the costume looks like a sloppy mess but I like that 'wig' shape and the contours is has going on.
This would make sense considering the school concept they threw out recently for advertisement. Peri has her gem and reading glasses on. I might try and design the visor with the hole now you've mentioned this. Thank you common sense anon.
On that note; which colour tint would be best for the visor? I think yellow and lime green look silly considering its white in the show. I'm going to try transparent worbla to see how it goes. But I've also come across a local store that does thin acrylic in an opal colour that allows some transparency.
anon is referring to these episode promos
on some of them pearl or the others aren't drawn with a gem, so take with a few grains of salt
The one on the right is really nice if she didn't have those weird strands dangling from her wig, she covered up her tattoo and removed the bracelets on that arm, and had a better gem. Other than that she's pretty good.
In her defence, the thick black bracelet looks like a con wristband (all the other cosplayers are also wearing a pink or black band). I agree with your other points, though - those dangling wig strands really bother me.
>Another hiatus for the show, anyone working on anything new?
Finished just in time for tonight!
Finished just in time for Halloween!! Minor malfunctions aside, i'm happy with how it came out.I'll need to do some tweaking for a con and some paint and patch jobs after walking around in the heat but I'm really happy with this run.
Because, Peridots as a gemstone are called by nickname "Evening Emeralds" Because in dim light they appear a deep green, but when in direct daylight they appear to be a soft yellow.
Both the character Peridot and clearly Hanari are simply reflecting this nature, the best example is Peridots escape in the episode "Friend Ship" because despite appearing her usual green, when she is making her escape into the sky where there is plenty of bright sunlight, she appears yellow.
it definitley looks like its yellow-green. her suit's much better looking this time around though.
why does no one in this fandom know what a cummerbund is
looks better in other pictures but she needs to fix it. looks like its just lying on her shoulders loose
Why no face paint? You got the colors right for the outfit and have decent arm socks on and a nice spear and a good wig. Why no face paint?
i was opal this weekend. my arms didnt arrive in time but otherwise im happy with it?
