homestuckfanfictionhelp:

So you want to start a fanadventure, yeah? Well, let’s see how I can help. We know for a fact that many characters across tons of universes have played SBURB or some version of it, so what’s to say another group of kids or trolls or whatever couldn’t have played the Game in a different doomed timeline? Not much, really. But the Medium is a complex place, and setting up a fansession could be kind of tricky. We’ll have to break things down a bit before we get started. Here’s what’s in store for part one:

 - Choosing Your Characters
     - How Many Is Too Many?
     - Names
     - Backstories, Interests, and More
     - Godtiers and Dreamers
     - Troll Blood Colors, Typing Quirks, and More

There’t a lot I want to cover in this guide, so forgive me if I get a bit wordy. All parts of this guide will be an overview of a basic SBURB playthrough, and I’ll also try to cover a bit about good storytelling here and there. In a fansession, you have total control over almost everything in the story, and creating the worlds your characters will spend however long in is an adventure in and of itself! So let your imagination expand, and go write!

There’s only a million of these out there, but none that I have found were consolidated into one post, were too vague, were overly complex, etc., etc., etc. I’ve made my own post of colors of import.

I’ve probably missed stuff. Send me an ask if I have, or if something is horribly wrong. I want this to be as accurate and updated as possible. Hopefully someone finds this helpful. ^^

If my memory serves me correctly…

  • Tavros and Vriska
  • Sollux and Feferi
  • Kanaya and Rose

And that’s it.

Karkat's blood is actually discolored green blood. He is between Sollux and Nepeta. Look at "ColoUrs and mayhem: Universe A" on the Homestuck Bandcamp page, and Karkat pacified Gamzee with green type, not red nor grey.

Sorry, are you referring to anything we posted in particular? I, personally, am a supporter of the theory that he is a mutant lime-blood but it doesn’t change the fact that his actual blood is a mutant shade of red which would put him at the lowest rung of the blood caste.

Once I attempted to make a sprite sheet, but then I got too lazy to do the clothes. I did manage to make this stuff before I gave up, though.
Feel free to use! That’s what I made this for, anyway. I don’t mind how much you edit it.

I keep seeing the older version of this being linked, so I figured I’d point out that this exists too.

For a fan troll, would it be okay if they had the same symbol as feferi? Like, they were and heiress?

Anonymous

Yeah it’s up to you! There’s nothing wrong with it, unless you had them interact with her or something, because no two unrelated trolls should have the same symbol. I personally prefer my own fantrolls to have unique symbols but I think it’s okay. Prepare for people to think they’re a variant of a Piexes though.

Yo im just gonna put this put there. But Walmart has a brand called HardCandy in the ccosmetics I dunno where else sells it but they do have some colored mascara. I didn’t see any red or pink, But I actually bought one their $6 and work pretty nicely. I thought it may be helpful for cosplayers? I know they have a really nice teal that would work for Terezi. An olive green that would work for Nepeta and a Blue for Vriska for homestuck characters…but they’d work for other non-homestuck characters too.

Make Troll Face Paint (Based on Tutorial for Crayon Lipstick)

firefly2552025:

IF YOU’RE ON A BUDGET AND YOU WANNA COSPLAY A TROLL, BUT FACE PAINT IS TOO EXPENSIVE, DON’T FRET! 

I have a solution for you guys.

I dunno if you guys are familiar with the crayon lipstick tutorial.

I made a review/walkthrough of it.

So I was making my black lipstick for Nepeta, right?

T-T Sorry I’m not smiling.

But anyway, that stuff started to get all over my hands so I thought, “hey, what if I can modify it to make it face paint?”

So I went on the interwebs to try to find a recipe for it.

I was surprised when I found this:

http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/crayola-face-paint

Then I was going to follow through with it, but…

I’m a lazy human.

So I got one of my empty Ben Nye face paint pots. (Do you know how fast you get through them? Like holy mackerel being a troll is expensive.)

Then I was too lazy to measure out things so I poured the vegetable oil (I actually used olive oil for this) to 2/3 of the jar of face paint. I then added the equivalent to 1/2 a crayon of wax. I was trying to use 1/4 “gray” and 1/4 “white.” 

Turns out that you need 2x the amount of oil for it to properly mix. 

So I guess it’s 1/8 of a gray crayon, 1/8 of a white crayon, and fill oil 2/3 of the face paint pot. 

Or, you know, you can measure out the thing using the second tutorial as a guide. 

But yeah, now you’ve got to microwave it. Like for a minute, then stir it a bit, then it goes in again for 30 seconds, then stir it until it’s smooth.

Wait for it to cool.

It’s gonna look really smooth. 

But what I did to check if it turned out all right was to swipe my finger in it. If it looks kinda spongy like this texture:

And it feels nice and fluffy and doesn’t have any bumps in it, you’re good. If it’s not nice and fluffy you either need to 

a) add more oil

or 

b) microwave it more then mix

Also, if the color’s not right, add in either more white or gray crayon wax to make it troll gray. If when you apply it it looks light or translucent, add another layer like:

Don’t judge me. I’m not a hand model.

Then you do the powdering thing because it’s shiny and you need to set it. Then final seal.

I use this:

But you can also use this:

And I’ve also heard of people using baby powder.

If you don’t know how to do the powder, use this tutorial:

http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread.php?29866-Homestuck-Related-Cosplay&p=4167924&viewfull=1#post4167924

Pretty much just go on from there.

I apologize for my weird faces. It’s 1 AM and I should REALLY BE GOING TO SLEEP.

EDIT: you’re gonna have to powder twice. First time you rub the powder in, second time you powder as usual

also: for powder you can use baby powder or cornstarch; for the final seal, you can use hairspray

tip: if the paint isn’t thick enough or just is too goopy, add powder in.
