sorry for the shitty quality and the mess. ; 3 ;
This is what I have so far for my Eridan, and I want to see what you guys think. I don’t have a wig yet and my skin is photoshooped (although the fins are actually painted grey.) and here’s a side view of the horns:
Also, I’m not sure on how to finish my gun. :c The base is a nerf rifle and then cardboard, and then a ton of tape, but I don’t know how to make it smooth and finished…

N says: I like your fins! I think it’s all looking pretty great so far. The shoes, though, are inaccurate. Your horns, themselves, look really wonderful, but they probably ought to sit bit further apart, and further back on your head. Your hair looks like it could be styled up into Eridan’s hair! Maybe try messing around with some gel before trying to get a wig? And for the colour streak, you could use temporary dye, or a clip-in fringe, or something. My biggest concern with your gun (which looks awesome so far) is if you plan on taking it to a convention, the weapons policy might not allow it, since it’s got a base of a Nerf gun. Make sure to read the policy carefully. As for finishing it, you could cover it in a thin layer of air-dry clay? Let D and I know how it goes.
D says: The pants and the cape are very nice! Agreeing with what N said about the horns positioning, but they look really nice. IMO they could have just a bit more darker orange at the bottom because it’s not very visible from the front, but that’s just a personal preference. I would try to find some new shoes, if you can, or at least paint the blue stripes down the middle of them. I also agree that a wig might not be necessary! I know a lot of places at malls sell clip in extensions for fairly cheap, so you could try that if you’re up for it, but I know a lot of people would prefer just to not use their real hair altogether. As for the gun, I’m not really sure, maybe find some sort of craft primer to coat it with and then repaint it? We’d love to see everything when it’s totally finished though!
