Q:Hey I saw that post you made of the mgs themed shirts. May I ask what kind of paper you used for the stencils and what type of paint that you used? And if it's not any trouble can you give me some tips on how to do the gradient effect seen on some of your shirts or whatever please? ;w;
For stencils I usually use whatever cheapest card stock/bristol paper I can find. Thick enough that it won’t tear when I’m cutting it, but thin enough to place over my computer monitor to trace designs!
The paint’s just regular ol’ spray-paint. Tried everything from the craft stuff to plastic/metallic enamels, and they all have more or less the same effect. It’ll fade very slightly after the first wash, but after that it’s fine!
The gradient effect is just a matter of spraying higher/lower on the stencil and/or doing longer/shorter bursts on the nozzle. The splatter effect on The Boss’ design is just from lightly pressing down on it, since the paint builds up slightly and spatters a bit instead of coming out in one large spray. Simple!
Since I’ve got a few more of these MGS designs to do early next month, I’ll try to take some photos for a tutorial post if my stumbly, jumbly explanation here isn’t enough. Realize I’m not the most clear person, sorry!
Q:I saw your quiet cosplay and OMG you wear it soooo hoooot! XD Are you currently seeing anyone? And does she cosplay too?
Thanks! And I currently have a very fulfilling relationship.
With jars of peanut butter and my bikes.
One I eat out plenty, the other I ride nigh daily.
No idea what I’m doing, but I’m getting better at doing it.
Got some blank tank tops and figured I’d stencil them up a bit. Respect to two great characters from my favourite game franchise! And bonus, close-up of the splatter effect on the back of The Boss’ shirt, and a shot of the stencils after their use, because I thought they looked cool.
Got a few more designs on the way, too. Just need the shirts for Raiden, EVA, and Big Boss to come in!
Not counting this as my first 3-plate squat because my form is awful— didn’t even go parallel! Terrible. But, thanks to my wonky posture, this is my first 3-plate booty pop.
Q:You are beautiful.
And so are you, stranger! So are you.
Gender-swapped Milo and Kida (Mila and Kido? Mula and Koda? Milla Jovovich and Cuba Gooding Jr.?) from Disney’s Atlantis. Quick sketches, sorry for the horrible anatomy and face-mushing!
Turns out Milo’s outfit is already pretty gender-neutral, and Kida’s just required ditching the top. From there on it’s just different hair.
Planning to make dude-Kida at some point. No idea when, but it’ll be fun for jumping around and climbing things!
Q:Why do you always choose such FABULOUS *ahem* cosplays? :o Really curious, not a criticism.
The fabulous costumes are usually worn by characters that have dumb, goofy poses and/or climb and jump around a fair bit. Both things that I like to do! Do have some regular costumes though— Dante from the new DmC being more recent, still waiting on photos for that though!
Q:why are u so fuckin attractive i want to look that good
Q:wow dude. cool cosplay. I found your tumblr through reddit. Indian right? Sorry if I'm wrong I just know other Mistry's and they are gujju. Either way amazing bod. I rarely see healthy Indians and this gives me hope. Any tips?
Thanks man! Whatever race(s) you’re comprised of, getting fit is all the same process— eat healthy, keep moving.
My diet usually consists of chicken/eggs/fish cooked various ways (with vegetables and fruits thrown in), not a big fan of soda so I usually stick to water and protein shakes to wash it all down. Keep away from the sugary stuff and over-indulging (it’s easier than you think) and you’re set!
As for exercise, I bike or walk/run everywhere, climb a lot, dabble in parkour, and do weightlifting/calisthenics for an hour or more at least 3 times a week. The latter helps loads since I’m with Vancouver Search and Rescue as well, lot of gear hauling and rope pulling there with weekly training!
Whatever your goals are, the key is consistency. Progress isn’t overnight, so just keep at it, whatever you choose to do!
