Step 1: Gravity Falls

For several years I was on a big Gravity Falls kick. The show is very well written and extremely entertaining. I started out several years ago doing a team cosplay at work. I dressed as Dipper Pines and built a large journal prop and my manager dressed as Mabel Pines and I made her one of Mabel's unique sweaters and a grappling hook gun.

Last year I hosted a Summerween event at the library where I worked. I created a Grunkle Stan cosplay.

In between these two event I created a Robbie Valentino cosplay that I deputed at Ohayocon and then pulled out again for Halloween.

Step 2: Hoodie Image Design

The most distinctive part of Robbie's look is a hoodie with the image of a scarred bleeding heart.

I did my internet research and cleaned up an images from a screen grab.

I then blew it up and printed it on a piece of 8.5" x 11" paper.

Step 3: Folder for Stencil

I was going to be making a stencil for the design. Instead of buying stencil plastic from a craft store I just went to a drug store and bought a plastic folder for under a dollar.

I disassembled it and had an 8.5" x 11" sheet of plastic to use.

Step 4: Stencil Creation - Part One

I then just used a glue stick to glue the design onto the plastic.

Step 5: Stencil Creation - Part Two

I then cut out the stencil. I cut a chunk out with a knife and then trimmed the rest with scissors.

I decided against meticulously cutting out the dripping heart section and made it just one large piece. I would draw in the details.

Step 6: Ink Application

Unfortunately I do not have any photos of this process.

I taped the stencil onto the hoodie with masking tape.

I then took a sponge and dabbed red silkscreen ink that I had bought at a craft store onto the stencil.

I have used this technique before but had always just used acrylic paint. I decided to use actual ink this time hoping it would be smoother. The acrylic paint always dried super stiff.

The ink dried just as stiff.

Oh well.

I used a black Sharpie to draw in the separation of the drips and the scar on the heart.


Step 7: Final Hoodie

I found a hat and a shirt for a co-worker to dress up as Wendy and and I had another duo Gravity Falls cosplay.
