League of Legends – Jinx build-up

League of Legends – Jinx build-up

For Banzaicon 2014 I wanted to enter the contest with my Jinx cosplay~

I´m no big player of LoL as I play Dota 2, but I really like the characters and the lores behind them in every
of these types of games.

This is rather a easy costume to make and it´s one of the cheapest I´ve made too haha

Costume first

Materials used:

– Two different hues of pink, fabric type: Strechy jersey.
– Skai/faux leather/imitated leather
– Belt buckles I was lucky enough to find at a thrift shop in town.
– old shoes
– toy ammo belts I bought from Ebay
– bandaid
– Body-paint Kryolan
– colorful eyeshades
– Pink shoelaces

These are the images I managed to take during my super stress periode before Banzaicon.
The costume is easy and it´s pretty much just a bikini-top with shorts. Most patterns on making
these parts are on the internet or you can trace your own clothes for a easier reference.

*In this image I have made the one stocking that Jinx has.
It´s pretty forward and I used thights-pants to make my pattern.

To make the stripes the stocking has, I decided I just wanted to
paint them on. Thus you need something to hold the stocking up and also
strech it out to the approximate size of your own leg/thigh.


























Here you can see how the Bikini-top fits. The opening is in the front and is held by a

giant belt buckle I found at a Thrift shop. I always save tons on just scavenging their belt sections

and buy cheap belts for their buckles.
The Ammo belt was directly sewn onto the belt.
Belt is made out of faux leather which is a bit strechy.

The leather sleeve and gloves are made out of the same fabric as the belts and the one
part of the Bikini.
The pink is all the Jersey fabric I found at the Norwegian store: Stoff&Stil for the Norwegian
cosplayers who might wonder.














The shorts was the thing that took the longest to put together, but was rather easy.

I used one of my own shorts to trace onto some baking paper and made the different stripes
for the two pinks I was gonna use.
I cut them all out from the original pattern, so remember to number them and keep them in order.
it might end up very wrong and uncomfy if you cluster the order and get a part wrong.













And this is how it looks after you pinned all the bits together.

notice that all the pieces are somewhat different, so that is why keeping them in order is really important.
This is only one of the sides tho.

Sew both parts finished before sewing them together : )














The shoes were easy enough. just thread in the pink shoelaces.

I bought mine at a 100Yen shop in Japan, but they are usually easy to
find everywhere.


















The wig was the hardest thing to do(in my opinion, because I´m still learning how to do wig-work)

It´s a long wig which I have extended by buying several long extensions from ebay and
local glitter stores.
The bang was done by spraying it to death with different kinds of hairsprays, some gel
and hairdrying.

The length of the wig is about 160cm 😀 and I´m only 158cm












Shock gun

Her shock gun was very questinable while trying to find good references.
Even the in-game and concept arts didn´t really show it well and appearantly for
many other cosplayers it was a bit up to our own imagination how we did it.


– Gashapon ball
– Non-transparent plastic sheet
– hot glue
– hair curlers
– Leds
– a toy gun/revolver
– pizza cardboard
– fun foam
– Eva foam

here you can see that I have opened the toy gun and modded in some Leds and some wires actually
going into the handle and made a push button so I can activate it easly while «pretending» I´m using the trigger.
The Leds are stuck in a piece of EVA foam.



The hair rolls were cut apart and I tried my best to push them in with the hot glue (also without buring myself),
so that is why it looks a bit messy on the inside (sorry)…




Making fishbones was a both fun and a bit frustrating experience.
It learned me to work with the cheapest materials ever existing.

Free Cardboard!

Yes! Cardboard is magical and so underrated 😀


– Cardboard(a lot of it)
– Masking tape/paint tape
– Glue gun
– wood glue
– water
– torn up newspaper bits
– PVC pipes
– fishing nylon(I think this is the right word for it? no?)
– transparent fimo
– small flashlights or leds
– Cardboard tupe from hardware shops

First of I make the basic shapes for the bigger parts and gets the
length I want before I start properly, fitting the bits and fixing minor things.
To make smooth curves on cardboard, just bend it carefully until the surface is the wanted shape.

This is mostly how I buildt the different parts up.
It helped to get the 3D feel of the parts instead of them just being
plain and flat.



I covered all the pieces with a mix of wood glue and a little bit of water.
Brushed it on with a unwanted paintbrush and let it dry.
When all the pieces are dry, do the same over again with a mix of the glue and water
exept this time you don´t add on the newspaper bits.
the glue mix works as a type of coating/gesso for your project and makes it easier to paint and work
with afterwards.



















































The paint work took overral about 30 hours to finish. one session lasted 16 hours of only painting,

forgetting that I´m just a humanbeing and need food and to visit the toilet. Watching a serie worked out really
well for once and of course I watched Moomins as it was on about 70 episodes 😀 yay!






















When it all was done, and hinged together we could install the lights inside the eye sockets.

The eyeball itself is made out of transparent fimo which I bought off from ebay.
The lights started out as Leds, but is now changed with 2 small flashlights : )

Borderlands Psycho Mask – Build_UP

During Närcon I got a suggestion to join in a Borderlands group during Alcon in England which starts next week.

Appearantly my size and energy is more like a midget psycho and thus I wanted to challenge myself a bit.

Making one of the masks have been a goal to achieve and I finally did so!
Only thing that is left is getting the lights installed.

Fan will be installed when I need it(summer)

What you will need:

– Airsoft skull mask from ebay
– Hot glue and gun
– White, thich paint. either thick acrylics or gesso
– Dark and light brown paint
– White and black paint
– Dremel/Multi-tool
– Computer fan
– Air-drying clay


I used the dremel to cut off some of the top of the mask because it was too big
for my head and would ruin the proportions.
also to make scratch marks on the mask after applying air-drying clay.
The dremel was also used to make the hole to fit the computer fan.
Tho mine is a really powerful one and can damage skin if turned on. Be careful when getting one.
mine has protection back on it when I choose to install it.


To get the «brown look» in the first image, I blended the light brown with water and used a sponge to smear all over it. It made the paint go into smaller cracks and make a nice illusion of dimensions and that there is actual
texture on it.

After finishing painting the mask I glued back on the «knobs» from the piece I had cut off earlier with the multitool/Dremel with a combination of both hot glue and epoxy glue.


And voila!

ready for getting the lights installed.

Dragon Half – Mink build-up

I had a gut feeling that Närcon would be boiling hot this year as last time.

And yes it did! Hardcore hot! Thought I was gonna pass out at times.
SO I decided to bring my Mink cosplay which I finished right before I left home and
got some assistance by Christina Erring, ChrixDesigns for the attachement of the wings.
you can find her facebook page here:

Also, her boyfriend, Håvard was superkind to take photos!
All the creds to him for them!

Most of the parts were made out of the very same foam I used for the Rathalos armor.
Cheap, terrible camping mats.

and the horns were made out of regular furniture foam, covered in paint and the lines were made with
my trusty glue gun~

For the wig, I started out with a punk/80s wig style and shaped it with Got2Be glue, hairspray and a hairdryer

Mink wig


And here is the result 🙂

Mewtwo build-up

I managed to finish my Mewtwo cosplay in time for Närcon in Sweden, but I will be honest to say that this
wasn´t my best work and I wish I could have realised this sooner before I left XD

but oh well!
The most important thing was to get to actually cosplay my favourite Pokémon!
And I got to cosplay together with another cosplayer who was the armored version of Mewtwo too!
It was awesome!

Here is the progress images which I managed to scrap together and if there is anything unclear, just ask
and I will try to explain the best I can 🙂

Hope you enjoy 🙂

CaveStory – Quote headset tutorial

At the moment I´m working on a cosplay for Alcon which is just around the corner, 5th of september to be exact in England.

Since I´ve promised myself to make more «lighter» cosplays for better transportation and easier access I decided that I wanted to make one of my favourite pixel game characters, Quote from CaveStory from both PC and 3Ds.

His headset has different versions, all depends on fanart, game versions and concepts. So I decided that I had to borrow some designs and twerks from both here and there to make it somewhat interesting.

The materials you need is the following:

– 6mm foamboard/Funfoam/Craftfoam(Norwegian = Mosegummi)
– Gesso paint, white
– Acrylics: Green & Yellow
– Gluegun and glue
– regular paper – for pattern making
– headband(this part I didn´t include as it is pretty much to glue the finished pieces onto the headband as they will fit you.


Quote headset

1. Use 2 glasses in different size

2. Cut out the templates you need.

3. I chose to do some fancy detailing on mine, so I cut the smaller circles in half.

4. Cut out all of the bits you need and perhaps some extra in case you need.

5. Glue the thin foam part around on the edge of the biggest circles you made.

6. Glue everything on as you want.

7. Put dat gesso/heavy acrylics on and let it dry. Do this at least 2 times or maybe 3. Depends on how thick you apply.

8. When dry, paint them finished with the base color. Yellow is a part of the design sometimes as i mentioned how different the versions could appear. On mine I chose to paint the edges on the half circles yellow.

9. Glue the pieces onto the headband. Make sure they hang on comfy before gluing them on.

and VOILA!

Quote headset!

Rathalos GreatSword buildup

As I did write the build-up for the armor, I will now present to you, the SWORD!

This is the biggest prop I´ve ever made in my entire life and I´ve learned a whole
lot of do´s and don´ts which I will present in the end for others to take note from
as well as my self when building something of this scale in the future.
first I will start with the material list:

– PVC pipe(I would recommend wood stick depending on the props size and weight)
– Cardboard
– paint tape
– Wallpaper glue
– newspaper
– hot glue
– isolation foam on can
– EVA foam
– fun foam
– Pleather
– Spakkel/Paper maché



After the spakkel is added onto the surface and gotten dry, the paint-job started





Then I started on making the «ridge» out of EVA foam





And here I would finally get the things I learned from a course during my time at the Art-school in the works! Stencil making and spray-painting! Out from 2 small cut-outs I made, I got this:





last details on the paint job!

and it is done!!!


I´m 158cm tall. XD

and thanks to Danarki! I got my photo taken during Banzaicon and he did a wonderful job! Thanks!
check out his facebook page and like, cause he delivers awesome stuff~


And here is my do´s and don´ts!!


– Make sure to measure the prop before starting on it. Daggers can by accident turn out to become swords.
– Use leightweight materials.
– Focus on making it sturdy and able to handle some bumps.
– Paint-job is important! make it look fabulous!~
– Use techniques from the interwebs or from courses. no shame.
– Use a combo between hot glue and contactglue as adhesive! It works like a charm!
(you might want to have something to keep it together until it all dries)
– Ask friends for help! Sometimes you need it.


–  Work without protecting the floor or things around you
– work with chemicals without protection or the proper tools
– Don´t use leightweight materials as the main core, it might break or bend cause of strain
– Don´t spray inside your house… just don´t
– think the isolation foam will not stick to ANYTHING… it does.
– make it so huge it is impossible to store or ship by yourself.

as far as I can take on the fly XD there might be much more, but I have business to attend to, so I will be off~

next time guys ❤
