Got this done for Halloween just in time.
close up on the mask
What do you guys think?
Just had my girlfriend take this.
I'm having way to much fun with it.
I'm probably going to take some sand paper to it honestly. Also the teeth were a huge pain in the ass and there's so many variations of the character that I decided to just take it a goofy route.
I originally wanted more teeth though.
Made this really quickly last night from some cardboard and a cheap fake flower for my Frisk cosplay I'm wearing at Comikaze! I might add a few more details later
Not me, but this is the first full Mettaton cosplay I've seen.
do people really care about the "accuracy" of costumes in undertale, seeing as how a lot of character models can be interpreted in different ways? i see a lot of different variations of costumes, like sans cosplayers wearing sneakers/slippers or hoodies with and without a fur trim.
i personally don't mind it, but i have no idea what others think about it
I've personally had a few people tell me that the sweater should be feathered in the hood. But I feel the same way you do. When it comes down to it, it's an pixel I'm working off of.
All of the interpretations are fan art depicting different things.
I also had a dude on facebook throw a fit because there wasn't enough teeth on the mask.
Like god damn man this thing was a pain in the ass to make already, I'll add however many teeth I want.
Posting a few other cosplays I found in tumblr tags.
That's all I've got for now. It's still kind of hard to find complete outfits, as most of the ones I've seen are just face pics or costests.
I like this game (and what I'm seeing in this thread!) I'm just worried this is gonna get Homestuckey, by this time next year I'm gonna see "hi I'm casual/human/beach!Papyrus" and its just some pale awkward dude with a little paint on.
Same, honestly just finding those pics off tumblr there was already some of that. But I guess it's to be expected since Toby Fox worked on Homestuck some too. It has a similar feel and also so many characters who require body paint...
I actually avoided homestuck since the beginning and didn't know Toby had anything to do with Homestuck till like...last week.
I hate that I'[m one of those people that allows retards to ruin things I like.
I like how she interpreted the outfit and the scones/pies are a really nice touch. I kinda want to make a white dress out of linen with a similar shape and have a kind of catholic priest type robe made of suede to go over it. I feel like natural materials would suite that weird cloak thing Toriel and Asriel got going on.
AW YEAH i was listening to the OST and thinking about it
I laughed harder than i should.
I would lie down with you.
Dammit this is some nightmare fuel
Already?! Hey they did well.
Not bad at all
I like it a lot
>that flower crown
Hmf...gonna let it pass this time tumblr
P-Please marry me i need to do Alphys and wish i had a girlfriend to do Undyne...
Need some work and improvement but that's a debut anon, go on.
Considering being Temmie for Halloween. It would be super lazy, just the shirt and cat ears and a cardboard box "shop". I'm just handing out candy this year so I'm not really setting out to impress people.
Ugh yep, I really feel like its going to go that way before my friends and I do our group in April next year. Like, I've already had friends who don't like it say that "it's basically just homestuck". I have no access to what people would consider the fandom since I don't have or like tumblr, all I see fan-wise is nice art on twitter haha
Then again, being in Aus, things take a small while to catch on. SU has only just started being somewhat popular at cons in the past couple of months.
Flowey prop anon here posting more Frisk cosplay updates!
I free-handed the stripes since I have no freezer paper and oh my god what a pain in the ass that was.
Because of my lack of paint, I don't think I can paint the back, but I'll be wearing a backpack so that's okay
slowly working on a mettaton cosplay myself too to keep myself busy and try a couple new skills/techniques, getting pretty excited about it
An older wip pic,but I'm finishing up my Papyrus cosplay for halloween/comikaze expo.Idk how I feel about it right now,but hopefully it won't turn out as complete shit tier.
Undertale is only really being played in AUS now. I've also found that most SU cosplayers don't do the body paint at cons because it's just too damn hot with our shit weather. They do it up for shoots though.
I've yet to see any undertale cosplays here though. I'm making the protagonist as a last minute Halloween plan and for something I was so meh about, the colours have been a pain to match. Mind you I'm super picky with colours too.
>most SU cosplayers don't do the body paint at cons because it's just too damn hot with our shit weather.
Fucking weakasses lmao back in my Homestuck days I did full paint for a 35+ degree November meet. If it's sealed properly its not going anywhere.
That aside, I was really hoping people here wouldn't discover it for a few more months. Y'know, enough time to keep THOSE kinds of fans away before Melbnova. Overexcited teenagers is already bad enough to deal with at cons, I don't to have to deal with Homestuck-tier overexcited teenagers again.
Have fun with your protag costume though! I understand how you feel with the colors, I need to head into Kryolan to get paint matched for Muffet and then find tights that match THAT perfectly for the rest of her arms, I don't even want to think about color-matching the reds on her outfit what with how terrible color selections in fabric are here.
Some of the tumblr stuff being made is all meh stuff for halloween,but its mainly Sans or Mettaton since alot of things are probably turning off the fandom teens from attempting to do much
Frisk seems pretty easy since I always look unphased and am a human [spoiler]also manlet[/spoiler]
Just get a brown wig and purple/blue shirt
But I worry it's one of those characters that always looks awkward no matter what
Trying to get in on this before shit fans ruin everything, opinion question:
for Alphys, would you go the full shebang lizard-face prosthetics; a half and half human-with-pointy-forehead-things-prosthetics or just forgo the prosthetic thing entirely and go as a human version with a styled spiky wig or whatever?
I've got some materials collected to do armsocks+stockings+facepaint and make a tail, but it's that face thing that's worrying me too much. The full face prosthetic sounds cool, but might also look dumb as all hell, I don't know, hence why I'm looking for some opinions.
That is rad.
Holy shizz i LOVE it that Papyrus mask is glorious anon i wish i could be there to snap a pic of you aw...Please post when finished.
the Sans in the OP is really rad as well. And there is some fine Undyne too. Good work there everyone
I think you should go for the full face prosthetic, honestly! I've seen a few human Alphys and they just look... Meh. The same as most human variations of a character.
The prosthetic will definitely bring a lot of interest to the costume even if you think it looks silly. At the end of the day she IS a lizard, after all. If you don't want to risk taking the plunge and doing full face, then the half-half would be nice too! Just going entirely human seems... Underwhelming.
I haven't gotten a picture back yet from our Sans. He's working separately from us but he's also a pretty experienced sculptor/cosplayer so when I get a picture from him I'll put it here.
I'm working on an Undyne cosplay and I'm wondering how to acheive her hair, it's like she only has hair in her ponytail. I originally thought "baldcap with a hole for a ponytail clip in the back" but will that really work?
Quick and shitty Frisk cosplay for Halloweencon(Comikaze)
I made a bunch of plush, about halfway through Flowey I said fuck it and made a Frisk sweater so it will be my Halloween costume for at home. This pics from before I had put wire in Flowey, he can now wrap around stuff and stick onto them, and has 4 little roots as well.
Are people going to overly KNITpick me for using a brighter blue to make Frisk's sweater? When holding real yarn in my hands a magenta/powder blue combo just looked so bad so I went brighter. I'm kind of regretting not picking up an accurate shade now that I'm swatching the yarn though.
Or would have getting a dustier pink been a better middle ground?
Honestly I think this is the better way to go with this cosplay. It's hard to tell what color the sweater is due to different computer screens, but whatever dumb cornflower/periwinkle/powder blue Frisk's sweater actually is looks absolutely disgusting with the magenta stripes.
prosthetics is a great idea but it could end up looking nightmare-ish, then again I'm pretty horrified by face prosthetics. I think what would look best is maybe some sort of mascot suit or fursuit-like head.
Alphys-anon back again, finished the first claying of this mask thing I will probably look back at with disgust when I'm sobered up.
Any critiques before I continue on with sanding and detailing? Drunk me is thinking the bottom part is a bit too fat looking.
Found his makeup test on tumblr too. Undertale's gonna be huge this year cosplay wise, probably.
Tons of patience and fabric paint, since I had no way of stenciling the stripes I had to make them a lot bigger than planned. They were supposed both supposed to be about 4 inches but the top one is about 5 and the bottom one is like 6. I used a mix of purple and pink to get that weird magenta color.
Bruh I'm not gonna lie about my cosplay, I did this in less than a week. I know I've done better than this.
Thank you very much! And I see what you mean, those could very well be fingers and I could just be very precise at painting.
Hey it's The papyrus anon, see if you can get some Celluclay from Joanns. It's easy to mold and sand alright. I wish I had used more of it before using gap filler.
Looks Really good! cant wait to see it with teeth
My buddy was able to get a whole Toriel cosplay done in 4 days for a holloween party.
I am filled with DETERMINATION
someone did on here on reddit
there's also this tumblr post, which used a couple halloween buckets
make a mold of your head by covering your whole head in foil and taping it all together with a bunch of masking tape. Carefully cut it off and stuff it (newspaper or plush stuffing) so it's full and you can build on it. Tape the cut closed then wrap it in plastic wrap so nothing will get stuck to the mold then use foam, more masking tape, newspaper, paper mache, or what have you to build the shape of the mask. When you have its shape OK and the mask itself is stiff (though not finished) rip the shit inside out and polish it up.
I can KNIT believe we had a similar idea anon! If I may ask, what yarn/needle combo are you using and what accent color did you decide to go with?
Sadly I'm a eurofag, so no JoAnn's or celluclay, hah. I'm using this kiddy clay that gets smooth with water, Creall do n dry? If anyone has some experience with it, feel free to share.
Thanks for the words of encouragement guys.
Cosplaying Mettaton, current plan is to use my horde of upholstry foam for his soul and soul container, carve out the general shape then coat it with a few layers of resin and then paint over. the arms I'm gonna use long gloves, stitch them or hot glue them to the bodice and attatch circles of craft foam that have been spraypainted mettalic and use white magic gloves for the hands, I've already got the wig and makeup from a Nepeta cosplay. But how should I best go about the bodice? I was thinking use craft foam and maybe coat it with resin? Or use 1inch upholstry foam and cover it in fabric?
Just went through the Undertale cosplay tag on tumblr, dumping the worst first
This one's not so bad but the blue paint on her shirt bugs the fuck out of me
Dumping the few good ones I saved now
How would one make Muffet arms and eyes not look fake and stupid... Really wanting to cosplay her. Any tutorials or ideas?
I'm considering cosplaying Flowey just because I think he'd be a really fun character to cosplay as. I'm planning on making a mask prop so that's the flower part of him down... but I'm not really sure what I should be doing with the rest of my body. I'm not sure a skintight green bodysuit would translate well. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I'm the first flowey prop anon, I'm working on a flowey 2.0 because I found a bigger sunflower to attatch it to at daiso. I'm sculpting it out of air dry yellow clay. I'm going to sand it down later once it dries.
I'm using Caron Simply Soft from joann's. What they had in store was blue mint and watermelon. They're supposed to be from a "bright" collection but they don't look very neon in person despite looking balls neon on their website (granted the blue is significantly brighter than the canon shade). I really wanted cobalt blue and fuschia but they weren't available in my local store and I'm an impatient piece of shit. I'm just telling myself, if it looks too bright it's ok because con pics always come out dingey and dark anyway haha. Or I'll make a new one with more experience this round.
I knitted my swatch with size 8 regular needles but I'm going to knit the body of the sweater with size 8 circular needles. This is my first time using circular needles! After my last sweater (razputin aquato) I swore to god I was never doing this shit again but look where we are now. Hopefully it's less of a pain knitting circular, and hopefully changing colors FAR fewer times makes things easier.
Also for my last sweater I didn't make a swatch and bullshitted everything and it came out way too big. This time I'm using this tutorial:
I think using some opaque black stockings for fabric and covering the mouth hole (or making a "sock" for your head) would be good. Seeing your eyes coming out of his mouth is...disturbing.
I actually do have a black fabric that covers the mouth,but I didnt have it on because I took it off once it got dark.Think my ears might be visible too in some pics and thats also because i dont hae my undersuit zipped all the way.
Ok so I wanna do a fully monster cosplay of toriel, i plan to use the official delta rune shirt in 6xl for the robe, so i just have a few questions
For feet, do I just wanna get some white rabbit paw feet things and use those, or custom make them? If the former, any good sites to buy from?
For hands, should I just get some white fuzzy gloves or big fuzzy mitts ala >>8688723 ?
For the head, do you guys know any good fursuit makers to commission for that? I'm not too big into the furry community, but for this cosplay I think it's necessary
>i plan to use the official delta rune shirt in 6xl for the robe
that is not going to be nearly long enough unless you're a small child. The design isn't the same either
Either commission everything else from the same person or make them all yourself. Getting parts from different sources won't look cohesive. There's not going to be a "site" to buy from, you're just going to have to find someone who has a slot open to make everything for you. OR learn how to do it yourself. Come on dude look up tutorials and do it yourself.
Finished just in time for tomorrow!
This has over 1000 notes on tumblr and they literally drew the outfit on in Photoshop
I made a sans plush that I'm bringing with me to a con next weekend. I'm happy with it even though his face is a bit off for my liking.
Anyways, anyone have suggestions on doing makeup for Toriel? Right now I'm considering white foundation (nothing over the top), blush, big eyelashes, either a nude or plum lip. I don't know whether I should try to do the fawn/goat-like shading under the nose or some variation of the sort, I reeeeally don't like that look when it's done all out.
a friend of mine on facebook did undyne and alphys for halloween. thought it was really cute.
this bitch deleted her san's mask tutorial
did anyone save it
no she just changed her url back from her halloween url dumbshit. it even says so in the blog title
Met a girl dressed as a young version of Asriel in a similar fashion to this at Gamex. It was pretty rad, did anyone who was there snap a photo?
I'm too much of a pussy to do Genocide, let alone following it up with a Pacifist run after
Only if you've fulfilled all the requirements for true pacifist up to that point. If you've killed anybody or you didn't make friends with anybody you have to do the whole thing over.
they take time, money and a knowledge of how to make one which most people don't have. Much easier are "kawaii"er to just face paint up and look cute for the day. At least that's what it seems to me from tumblr brats.
>all these Sans cosplay guides for heads
Personally, I prefer the facepaint version, simply because the goat head in real life loses all the motherly charm the character has.
I want to do a couple cosplay with my girlfriend, but she hasn't gotten far enough in the game, and the pairing would be spoilers.
I see promise, aside from the skulll, it looks like just an issue of proportions
Ahhh, seeing a monochrome mettaton is cool
AUs don't work if you can't recognize the character. Maybe if they had some of the other more distinct characters with them it'd work but alone...
With a little improvement on painting so it doesn't get on their clothing, I think this could be great. Maybe tucking the eye patch's elastic a little more under the wig hair.
I'd recommend maybe just using spandex shorts instead. I think it'd help the silhouette.
I like these two a lot. Normally I'm not a fan of naturally hair cosplays but I think it works a lot better for frisk/chara, especially when it's styled right.
Dang these are sweet. I think the only thing I'm not a fan of is the yellow lipstick but that's a nit pick.
You do realize that that would make the silhouette worse, right? Pap's shorts are kinda "hovering" to mimic hip bones so having them be spandex and closer to OP's natural hips would be shit.
I'm not quite sure how I'm going to make the actual body of the bodice piece, but I think how I'm going to finish it by covering it in wet look spandex, kind like this http://www.pixelninja.se/progresssamus.htm
My gf and I want to cosplay Undyne and Alphys. Now I wonder about how to pull off Alphys the best. Make a mask or a more humanoid version maybe with latex prosthetics and a lace front wig spiked in the back? I'm pretty good with wigs and facepaint but both masks and prosthetics would be new fields for me.
I'm making mine by making a harvest that will be going under the top with a backing of plywood (a small piece of it so it's not super bulky or anything ) and I'll be attaching the PVC arms to the wood. The hands are sculpted out of an air dry clay and the. Attached to the end of the PVC arms and then I will be sanding the arms and covering the. In expanding foam. Carve, sand, seal the fuck out of it and then paint them.
What are you guy's thoughts on using arda's Magnum in a dark purple for Mettaton EX? I'm going with the pink colour scheme everyone seems to like and I thought a bit of purple would look nice in conjunction with the pink robo-bits.
They even got the hair on the wrong side of the face.
little dump from the undertale cosplay tag
There's a few makeup tests on here but that's about it.
Good choice. We're all garbage here.
Related, I'm the other Alphys-anon with the mask earlier; trying to make a mould with silicon kit smells SO BAD, I can't deal with harsh vinegar fumes. I can only hope it works out in the end and I can get a nice resin mask out of it.
Well when Alphys talked about how she hates herself and how she feels useless I was like "Yeah I feel it Al. I feel it so bad.".
If you need advice on the building though, I can help out. I can't sew, but I know all about that building fursuits/mascots and shit like that.
Thinking of cosplaying Frisk. What wig would you guys suggest, and how should it be styled?
I see people draw Frisk with shaggy hair, but the sprite suggests Frisk has a bob cut. The wig's really my main concern, everything else looks pretty simple and I'd just adorn the cosplay with props (any of the weapons and items you find in the game, for instance).
I agree that it's a bob but make sure you style it as the right kind of bob so you don't end up like coconut head.
Frisk's hair almost reminds me of Kohaku from Spirited away but softer
Like the edges aren't as blunt. I'd suggest going with a wig like Kohaku's hair then like thinning the ends out and giving it a little texture with a razor comb or thinning shears. Maybe fluff it up a little too
holy shiiit i need to do this but i've never messed with paper mache or anything outside of my Stormtrooper armor. any chance theres someone i can commission something like this from?
and how you see out of that? they are either very well covered or you cant see out of the blue eye
Those all look like paper mache to me. Paper mache is pretty simple, just mold it around something.
A lot of them look like the eyes are just completely painted (black, blue, white, everything). Maybe they just dont see at all?
That's an adorable plush!
I made a tiny temmie plush for my boyfriend to keep next to his monitor.
Has anyone done an Asgore yet?
I'm thinking of going for it.
Thanks, I'll take you up on that offer if I need it.
I think it's funny. A lot of people will see Alphys and feel either "ugh this tumblr bitch" or "welp, this is literally me except for the horrible experimenting".
Then maybe do Asriel instead? Besides his first boss form, you could go hard and do a neat Hyperdeath version if you still want to do big shoulder armor and all that. Mettaton too would be good for someone who's pretty lean. I just can't see a thin Asgore being a good representation of him.
>inb4 tumblr, i just want to see more accurate bodies for cosplays when possible
saw these guys at my local con, they were amazing.
Update on this. 20,410 stitches so far! Just started on the sleeves.
If you're looking to commission a fully-finished fursuit head, please remember it's expensive if you want it to look good, and it'll take a while to arrive to you likely. I'd say expect to shell out at /least/ $200. You could also (if you are good at sewing) commission simply a foam base sculpted for the head.
Here's a list of reputable fursuit makers:
http://fursuitswag.tumblr.com/post/80068980806/fursuit-maker-list (It looks super expensive but remember those "starting prices" are for full suits.) All the artists I want to recommend are pricey so idk how much you're willing to shell out.
I would also reccommend maybe going on Furbuy https://www.furbuy.com/ and checking out if lesser-known artists are taking commissions and stuff.
Like other anon said, if you can't make the robe you should just commission that too because that shirt in 6xl is just going to look bad to be honest, dude.
Looking great so far my knittah!
You and I seem to be working at a similar pace! I was gonna upload my progress too haha. Here it is btw. Wrists were arguing about starting the second sleeve so I started stitching pieces together.
I work everything flat and then stitch it together instead of knitting round like the other anon does. so any weird looks from the sweater are because: the sleeve, (my) right side of the sweater, and (my) left side ribbing aren't stitched together yet
And while uploading the pic I've realized my phone camera desaturates things ugh
Thanks! I've only just recently learned knitting, so, and this isn't a joke, comments like these fill me with determination to get better!
Frisk's top is the second thing I've ever knit, and I realized that my pic has a cameo by the first sweater I ever knit on the blue chair on the right haha!
Wow, I assume that's a Mabel sweater you made over on the chair? I don't know much about knitting but I really admire it, and both of your sweaters look fantastic. Especially that Mabel one, it looks so good, so impressive for a first sweater.
Sorry for off-topic admiration. I just love sweaters.
Oh - that's me. The wig is an old Grell one and surely not the best but I think it actually does an ok job until I get a lace front.
Right now I think about doing latex makeup to "flatten" my nose for Undyne. Do you think it'd make a good effect or look weird?
Coming from a fursuit standpoint, it's really hard to get a decent indent when it comes to follow me eyes. Most follow me eyes are sort of... built in. Now if she like, put plastic or a similar material over it that's how most people try to distract from that, but then you risk fogging up and ruining your already limited eyesight, haha.
No, I know that, it just tends to look better for follow-me eyes when you make the indent amount less...big I guess? This goes for all fursuits. They're "built-in" but you make them before they go in the socket, so you do control how much space is there. Just sayin.
Just finished putting this together. I tore apart one of those goofy headbands and put the wiring back together to make it. I still haven't decided if I want the heart exposed or behind a plexiglass 'case'. I might see how the light diffuses and make my decision from there.
I'm really excited about integrating electronics into this cosplay. I've also got plans to put a small speaker into the chest piece that I can hook up to my phone and play music from (quietly and un-obnoxiously)
