Vriska robot arm TUTORIAL 2of2

A bit different Vriska Serket robot arm tutorial: Part 2 - The Colors

Part 1 - The Glove…

OH GOG. This took longer than I expected! I'm sorry for the delay. ;-; traveling, school exams, social life.. you know the drill. But now it's here!

I explained pretty much EVERYTHING in this part, so this might sound like a tutorial for dummies haha. I just wanted to be thorough and explain ALL the pros and cons I went through with this process. ALL OF THEM. I hope this'll be helpful on your own path of Vriska cosplay~ <3

:heart: PS: I'd LOVE to see your results! <3

This is really helpful for me 'cos I'm cosplaying as Vriska and I didn't want to make it out of foam.

Amazing!! How do you think this would work with sharpies instead of copics?

I'm not sure what commission means. I want to make this for my sister for her birthday, but she would likely see me making it for her plus I am a terrible drawer. Can you make one and sell it to me? Somewhere in $5-$8?

commission means making and selling it to someone.

so no, she won't do that.

Is there a reason it should be Copic markers? like do they work better on fabric or...? I'm wondering if regular Sharpie markers would work.

I'm gonna try making this for my Male Vriska cosplay c:

Oh my god that looks amazing!
Thanks so much for making this- I'm cosplaying Zombiestuck Jake English, and he got his arm chopped off so he wouldn't become a zombie after one took a chuck out of his arm- so Dirk built him a robot one.
this is utterly amazing.. i am trying to see my options for a metallic arm and this could very well be the winner. Thank you!

Whoa, thank you about this tutorial very much! Now I know which would work.. 
Dredorida's avatar
This looks freaking impossible! XD I will try anyway! Never really done any real-life shading on an object, let alone using pens, but I will certainly try!

Can you describe the sash-tie system you used for securing the arm?

She took some fabric and attacked it to the glove so she could loop it around her shoulder and under her arm as well. Theres a diagram in there somewhere.

Your tutorial is great!  I used it for my winter soldier arm, and my friends thought it was a great idea instead of fabricating something bulky.  =D

Just one question though, is there a way to lock the copic ink into the stocking before it gets washed?  the heat in atlanta, georgia was more then I was expecting.  x.X

This is amazing! I've been strugling to figure out how to make an arm for my Winter Soldier cosplay and this really helped a lot so thanks!
