Cosplay Skills: Custom Temporary Tattoos


Take your cosplay, dress-up, or everyday fun skills to a whole new level with this awesome tutorial for making and applying your own realistic-looking custom temporary tattoos from Commander Holly’s Cosplay Class video!

I must say that, as someone who has recently tried (and mostly failed) to remove a creatively-placed temporary tattoo, I’m especially thankful that tattoo removal instructions were also included in the video. (I can hear parents from all over the internet signing in relief!)

Got geek kids? This project is fun for the whole family! If you’re ready to get started, you can find a full list of the supplies used in the video over on Holly’s blog.
