Cosplay tip: Crepe Beards
You will need the following:
-Crepe hair (you can purchase this on eBay)
-Sprit Gum (Costume stores, makeup sites such as Kryolan,eBay etc)
1) Cut a piece of crepe hair from the braid and tease out the hair. You want the sections to be relatively thin so you can build up the beard gradually.
2) Apply spirt gum to small section, I usually start from under the chin and work my way up. Wait until the spirit gum goes ‘tacky’. You can determine this by touching the spirit gum with your pinky finger - if you see small ‘strands’ appear you know it is tacky.
4) Apply a small section of hair (you do not need to worry about the length just yet) apply pressure with the handle of your makeup brush. Repeat steps 1-4 until you get the desired thickness/shape for your beard.
5) Trim to desired length/style when the entire beard has been applied.
You can use this method for eyebrows, moustaches, ageing hair on bald caps etc. This method can be used for theatre and has been used in tv/film. I personally think it’s a cost effective way to make a slightly realistic looking beard.
Now you can have crazy beards for cosplay!
P.s I stole these images from google images but I’ve done this method many times for my Hair and Media Makeup course.
Great for either crossplay or if you want a beard for a costume but don’t want to grow one out.
Guess how many fucks I give right now

This seamless trim technique is a method I’ve been using for years to add custom trim to my costumes without any top-stitching at all. Similar in a way to bias tape, but with many key differences in implementation and results. No one taught me this technique, but now I’m teaching it to you! Please read through all the instructions below before asking any further questions, and happy trim-making! C:
