Hey everyone! It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but they will start showing up more! That’s a promise!
So let’s begin with today’s topic: The Plasti-dip Tango and Cosplayers Have Super Powers!
The Plasti-Dip Tango
This week I finally had the chance to Plasti-Dip the commission I have been working on for a few months now. Now, I have used the spray on Plasti-Dip for quite a few props but, each time I learn more and have different experiances. This one was no different.
While spraying on the Plasti-Dip I actually figured out a good amount of pressure to apply on the nozzele to get an even burst of spray to come out. (Took me long enough honestly, to figure that one out.)
I also learned two very important facts about the Plasti-Dip spray–or Plasti-Dip in general.
After spraying/painting the foam, for Kami’s sake lay down some wax paper and set your project on that. Else, you’re going to have a bad time when it dries. Just trust me on this one.
If you’re sick or low on energy, it’s not a good idea to Plasti-Dip. You will get queasy and lose even more energy. Your health is more important than your project. It may not seem like that at first, but take my word for it. And also, if you’re still not convinced check out my recent Thinking Out Loud post: Take Care Of Yourself, There’s Only One You!
So, it’s pretty safe to say that I myself am still learning the ways of the Plasti-Dip. Which reminds me…I can’t be the only one who struggles with this blasted, yet helpful material. I think I’ll make a Quotable How To to help everyone navigate the world of that little trouble maker we call Plasti-Dip.
Cosplayers Have Powers
Now, when I say Cosplayers have power I don’t mean super powers like actual super heroes–although we can dress up like them if we want to. What I mean, is when we dress up in our cosplays and go around at conventions or events, people see us. And sometimes those people are in need of a little cheering up so seeing someone dressed as their favorite character can make them smile.
That’s why I say Cosplayers have powers. We have the power to use our craft and passion to make people happy and make their days brighter. And I say that’s the best power someone can have.
Well, that’s it for this adventure! See y’all next time…
