Hiccup + Flight Suit
Requested by Hicksderhune
So, some of you will have seen my floating Malteser cake I posted at the weekend. I’ve had so many messages and comments asking how I did it. And because I’m just that kind of generous, I thought I’d show you.
You’re going to need;
A baked and ganached/buttercreamed cake.
Saw a super cute HTTYD group at AniRevo, their cosplays were phenomenal!
(Not to mention that the Nadder Onesie was hand made)
Im the Hiccup, and define-sanity was the Stormfly! So glad you liked our costumes!
Ah! Im so glad the kigu i made for my bae was well received!
How to make scaled leather, the easy method.
You could just glue it all together, but glue is unreliable and wears out fast, especially when in constant movement. I don’t want my costume to fall apart while I wear it, so everything is getting stitched. The glue is just to hold it together while I stitch.
DANG I SHOULDA DONE THIS FOR MY HICCUP COSPLAY!!!
Also! using regular tacky glue isnt the most effective to tack down the scales. e6000 is a better adhesive to use on leather
I promised you guys a tutorial and here it goes.
Step 1. Look for information and decide what exactly you want
Unfortunately, we still have not much pictures of Astrid in HTTYD2. Actually, everything we know about the shoulder pads is in this pic:
As you can see, the pad has 5 details and…
Hiccup (HTTYD 2) Cosplay Refs and Help!
Top: Black and brown shoulder and torso armour. Scaled brown leather beneath this. (beneath that a long sleeved green top) Brown and black leather gauntlets with multiple straps. One opens to reveal pages from a book. Another, the left holds a knife.
The black armour on the torso can be opened to hide a folded map. He has a compass strapped to his right arm.
Theres a red dragon face painted on the right shoulder armour and a circular red dragon symbol on the torso armour.
Beneath this is the dial for his “spine”.
The leather scales extended past the hips.
Pants: Green leather? Stitched together in several places. Not sure how it’s attached but theres brown leather extending from the hips down to the legs. It’s attached with several belts. Theres a part below the knee? that he can put his hands through belt loops and pull out concealed wings. These are hidden in pockets and can be packed away just as easily. You dont have to make these though.
The artifical foot is probably going to be the hardest. Theres not many tutorials but there are wip’s and cosplays that show you what they’ve done. I’ll include that instead. If you make the boot as big as you can, than the peg leg would look so big with your foot inside or hiding.
Wigs: Shoulder length, but layered? choppy brown wig. Two or more short braids.
Some may need to be styled. Arda reccomends a Jett, Jaguer or Hansel in Spanish Brown or Mahogany.
Makeup: Small scar on chin, small smattering of freckles still and a bit of facial hair.
Props: Sorry not much help here.
General Non HTTYD Specific Tutorials
I hope this helps D: theres not a lot of tutorials or anything out there right now. But as more crop up I’ll try to put them on the blog!
10 different shades of green, purple, blue and pink in my hair at the moment. Hope to look like some sort of impressionist peacock when its all done! :D

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become.
Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy.
"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."
Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet.
"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."
Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.
One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.
It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.
"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."”

Oooh. I reblogged a partial version of this recently but I didn’t know how many more there were! I LOVE these!
