I finished him! This really has to be my favourite cosplay so far – he was truly the most fun to make, and wear! For the fang, I used a cheap fake nail painted gold and cut into shape. I stuck it onto my tooth with denture paste. It wasn’t easy to talk, but that’s…… Continue reading Gentleman Gnar finished!
I made the tail! At last! And believe it or not, but expanding foam worked. For how long, though, nobody knows So my method was a little convoluted, but for now I think it’ll hold just fine.

Initially, I tried sewing felt to the base of the ears, then hot glued them to the headband. Unfortunately the hot glue immediately unstuck.…… Continue reading Gentleman Gnar Skirt + Ears
In my last post I talked about my overall troubles with Gnar’s blazer. In the end, I said I ordered a blazer off of Aliexpress and planned to sew stripes on using bias tape. Unfortunately, I wasn’t forward-thinking enough. I forgot that because I would be sewing stripes onto a completed blazer, I would not…… Continue reading Gentleman Gnar’s Blazer
