Blackbeard's Season Finale Flag: White & Red Silhouette Vinyl Cutouts
Using VLC's advanced controls (VLC > View > Advanced Controls and under the video box there's a camera icon that'll take image snapshots of the video, as well as an icon that'll allow you to move frame by frame in the video. Hover over the icons for a second and they'll explain what they do for you), I went frame by frame in the season finale to get the best straight-on snapshot of the flag as it's waving in the air. From there, I used a mix of Photoscape and Photoshop to edit everything down to the demon skeleton and bleeding heart.
See above the .pngs you can merge into Silhouette for vinyl cutting.
For C2E2 2022 I used permanent red and white vinyl to press onto the back of my pleather vest. I really liked how it came out.
Ed/Taika Cosplay: Make a temporary New Zealand hawk chest tattoo
The tattoo artist is Doctor Woo on IG and they posted a super clear image of it here. Time for some image editing. I think I used Photoscape and Photoshop for this IIRC.
See above, I started with cropping the image, then blurring everything around the hawk so the software could easily detect and select the hawk. Third image, I worked on increasing contrast so the tattoo design would be printed black.
Ended with this .png image!
Feel free to save this and merge it into a Silhouette design. My favorite tutorial on how to do this (whether it's stickers or temporary tattoo paper), is Black Sheep 303's 'Silhouette Cameo 4 Stickers: Print Then Cut'
For C2E2 2022 I printed out various sizes of the hawk on one piece of Silhouette tattoo paper. It came out looking great imo. Some success pics of it can be found on my insta here.
