I haven't really found much helpful online. Do you guys have any tips for keeping the tails in an Arda Chibi wig up high? I'm able to reposition them fine, but much like my own hair, they fall down over the course of the day and I can't keep them up.

Sew ‘em in place! Anchor the elastic/tie to the closest sturdy part of the wig’s frame as you can — generally those elastic strips that run vertically around the wig. If possible/your pigtails are high enough, you can even anchor them to the skin part. Just be neat and the threads won’t be visible!

Jenn and I sorted out our communal Arda Wigs colour ring. 🌈 I also took the time to make a neatly organized spreadsheet of the wigs available for each colour, since the site is a bit dated in that regard. If you’re a regular Arda customer, let me know and I’ll send you the file!

Today I found a photo from the premier of Before We Go last night, taken at the exact second that Chris noticed that I had my massive cap shield.

The Superman suit is about as iconic as a costume can get. First seen on the cover of Action Comics #1 in 1938, the design has changed significantly throughout various incarnations in comics, film and television.  Despite various versions of the suit being different than others, each variation has almost always retained enough of its original essence to still be instantly recognizable.

In 2006 the suit was re-imagined once again by Louise Mingenbach, and was worn by Brandon Routh as Superman in Superman Returns. In a 2010 Comic Con panel, which you can see here, it was revealed that this suit would go on to be worn again in the CW Television Series, Smallville, which traces the early origins of Clark Kent. The costume made a couple of appearances on the show as a prop, before ultimately being worn by Tom Welling as Clark Kent in the last episode of the series.  Welling only wore part of the suit – enough to do the famous “shirt reveal.”  Other shots of Welling in the full suit are CGI, which account for any differences in the “look” of the Smallville suit versus the Superman Returns suit.

I’ll never forgive Smallville for its finale. Never. Horribly mismanaged, the use of the Returns suit included.

Notice anything different?Also I should point out that old Captain Meatball himself is the second avenger to not want to sign it because my shield is too nice. If only they knew I drop that thing down stairs and shit.

Dangerous Ladies… the store?!

Guess what?

We’re going to be opening up an online store.

Not the kind that sells sassy prints of us with lipstick kisses on them, or the kind that resells mass produced trinkets and whatever, to boot!

We’re opening up a bonafide we-made-this-shit store selling cosplay accessories, build-your-own/paint-your-own kits, patterns, prop blueprints and so on. While we may offer some finished stuff, we’re aiming to keep it “DIY” to a large degree; even if we supply some of the pieces and parts of a kit, we want people to feel they still had a part in making it, including choosing their own paint jobs and detail work.

(And don’t worry — we’ll still be posting tutorials, progress pictures, snapshots of our patterns and all the stuff we already post! We’re just going a step further to the physical world.)

We will also be selling prints by Emmy and potentially hosting an upcoming Lady’s line of couture fandom-inspired clothing.

Stay tuned for more details :)

In the mean time, anything you want to see in particular?

hi there :) I checked out your tutorials and notes and couldn't find anything so I'm really sorry if this gets asked a lot but... do you do commissions? :) thanks for any reply, either way, and again sorry if it's an annoying question! <3 <3

It’s okay! I don’t think we have it posted anywhere in particular.

Our policy for commissions is “for the right project.” Doing commissions for full costumes long-distance is pretty much out of the question simply because accurate garment construction demands fittings, but we could be tempted into doing smaller projects; sculpted/cast pieces, wigs, outfit pieces, etc. Give us a shot and we’ll see what we can do.

We always decline these ones lol.
