@uniwigs sent me this beautiful wig, & I threw it on with my everyday makeup and contacts from @ttd_eye (queen grey) ! I originally wanted this wig for Legolas, but I'm curious to see what else you guys think it could be used for?! . Use code " alysontabbitha " for 20% off your order from #uniwigs and 10% off your order from #ttd_eye ! . This wig is "blondie" Super fast shipping, great customer service, and my wig came with a cap and nice wig comb! Despite being very long and full it doesn't tangle easily! Guys I'm like super excited, I get all my wigs from Ebay, so I never really get to experience wigs this nice! Im happy bean 🤗 . #lacefront #lacefrontwig #naturalwig #blondie #blondiewig #ttdeye

I thought since I posted a New updated #JackSparrow Makeup Tutorial on my channel, it only makes sense to take a new before and after costume transformation! ☠ī¸ . Full makeup / Wig / Costume by me! 🏝ī¸ . Back in 2014 a old image of me in & out of my Jack Sparrow cosplay went viral, it was taken with a little digital camera cause I still had a chunky flip phone at the time. lol I originally uploaded it to my personal facebook years prior to ask my friends if I should dress as jack sparrow for Halloween again! (I didn't know much about cosplay back then!) I only even ever made a cosplay page because so many people asked if I had one! I didn't even know what they were since I didn't know about cosplayers prior! đŸ¤Ŗ . I remember going all out every year for Halloween cause I just loved the crafting and transformation process so much! So you can imagine how excited I got when I found out about cosplay!! 🙂 . This was posted months ago for patrons! And I have a few others new before and afters on there too! đŸ¤Ģ . . . #jacksparrowcosplay #makeuptransformation #makeuptutorial #piratecostume #halloween #captainjacksparrow

#JackSparrow behind the scenes video clip! Enjoy the cheesy editing and watching me talk while excited about something đŸ¤Ŗ lol Here's a few seconds behind the scenes of the making of my Jack Sparrow tutorials! I love making these videos cause there are so many bloopers, and silly moments while filming and doing shoots, and I'm never nearly as serious during the process as I look in the final results. LOL . Thesl full video is so much longer and they are only available to patrons since I have no where else to post them and no other reason to make them! lol 😮 I have quite a few BTS and VLOGS posted, this is probably one of my favorites, second to my Wonder Woman BTS video! 🤗 .

Full costume, makeup, wig, made & worn by me~ @AlysonTabbitha Hey guys! Who's going to @holidaymatsuri in Dec?? I'm so excited!! this will be my 3rd year going & it's such a great con experience every time! . I might bring my #JackSparrow costume out of storage for #HolMat2017 if enough people wanna see it! . I have also been working on remaking my classic #widowmaker skin costume for holmat, cause I want it to be more accurate! I also plan to finish #wonderwoman if I have enough time!! (If I don't wear jack I'll probably bring #Lestat again, cause that was lots of fun last year, and I don't get many other chances to wear him due to the weather ! If you are going to #Holidaymatsuri, let me know your thoughts! . Otherwise just enjoy this pic of my #JackSparrowCosplay ! . . . #piratesofthecaribbean #potc #potccosplay #jacksparrow #crossplay #jacksparrowcrossplay #piratecosplay #cosplayer #alysontabbitha #johnnydepp #johnnydeppcosplay #makeuptransformation #captinjacksparrow #captainjacksparrow

Loving all the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie trailers! <3 . Cosplay/wig/Makeup made and worn by: @alysontabbitha (Also a lot of people ask me about my facial hair! I use Lace facial hair from @maxwigs ! ) I will be making a post showing how I style it! ^_^ . Since the new pirates movie comes out May 26th (The day before my birthday May 27th!)

Again, if you follow @cosplayfabrics you prob saw this weeks ago! 🙂 If there's any advice I would give to cosplayers, it is to never give up! The only way to improve your skills is practice and patience. Don't be too hard on yourself, or compare yourself to others. Everyone works at their own pace, and there is always room for improvement. I remember when I first dressed up as my favorite Pirate, I was so happy and loved it so much, and everyone else did too! I was just as proud of my costume then as I am now, Because it wasn't about being "THE BEST", it is about doing MY BEST. I have been reminding myself of this a lot while working on Aranea, I see all these amazing costumes for her, and mine just doesn't compare. & I get down on myself. But also I have really been pushing myself, so if I have to remake her in the future when my skill improves so be it. Right now I am doing my personal best & with my limit of time/supplies and funds. (Hopefully will be have some progress to show you guys soon!) #cosplaymotivation #cosplay #transformation #jacksparrowcosplay #captainjacksparrow #crossplay #piratecosplay #piratesofthecaribbean #potc #potccosplay #jacksparrow #dontbetoohardonyourself #dontgiveup
