A note on the value of PAX
This is the bottle I used to mix, carry and apply the PAX Eddie and I used for Fanime. Its 2 OZ (59mL) but it was only full up to about where the line indicates. So like a little more than half way.
This is how much we used up in 3 days. For both of us.
We bought 8 Oz of Pros-Aid No Tack at Nigels Beauty Emporium in Los Angeles for about 18$. I think if you order it online its about 21$ (?) for 8 Oz at like… FX Warehouse (?) and it comes in 4 Oz, 16 Oz and maybe 2 Oz bottles too.
(Nigels also has a web store but for some reason I’ve never been able to find the No Tack on there even when I know it’s in stock but maybe if you email them they might be able to let you order it from them?)
Then you mix the Pros-aid 1:1 with acrylic paint and you end up with twice as much PAX, so assuming you didn’t go out and buy really expensive acrylic paint (don’t) you’ve essentially doubled the value of the Pros-aide you just bought.
1-2 Oz of PAX will pretty much cover a whole person for 2-3 days depending on body chemistry and personal comfort.
We each did both our arms, necks and collar area. We showered every day but the PAX only came off our hands, necks and like inside elbows. Basically you can wear PAX for 2 days straight even with showers and just touch it up the next day. The 3rd day is kind of stretching it though, and by that day we were almost out of paint and what we had alreadt been wearing was starting to get sort of sticky, itchy and more easily peely but we just powdered it and touched it up and it still looked good. That was the day of the meet up so if you saw us you can attest to that. Also it came off pretty easily in the shower (with some scrubbing) that day.
So in conclusion PAX is not very expensive and very economical. The only problem really is that for just about everyone outside of L.A. and NYC you’ll probably have to get it online.
PS. I think maybe I can do either video or text guides/tutorials on mixing, applying and removing PAX if thats the sort of thing anyone would find helpful.
TA: you are a tiin can, robot2 don’t have feeliing2.
AA: n0 thats n0t true
the aradiabot set i put up a few days ago didn’t have the chest wound visible in any of the photos. if you look closely in [s] make her pay, you can see in some frames that the metal over aradia’s chest has been welded/bolted shut again after she tore her heart out. you can’t see it on her sprite or in any other panels, so it’s an easy detail to miss, but i wanted to include it in my costume because i think it says something poignant about her- that she does not need emotions that aren’t her own, and for the entire time she was aradiabot, she bore a scar representing that right over her heart. i think that says a lot about just how well she is written in the story- there are so many subtle little details to aradia’s development and characterization that i wish i could make everyone appreciate. she’s just a really fantastic character and oh shit what am i doing i’m getting carried away with my aradia feelings oOPS
i also wanted to say thank you to everyone who liked/reblogged/said such kind things about this cosplay. it means a lot to me. all week i’ve kind of been in shock at the overwhelming reaction, so thank you very, very much to everyone.

I am always extremely impressed by Vriska cosplayers who can take themselves seriously, because I cannot.

I’m laughing like really hard~
Dear all cosplayers
please clearly state your age on all your pictures always so that I know how hard I’m allowed to creep on you.
