Sock glue! It’ll be your new best friend for unattached sleeves, thigh-highs, and boot covers!
Yep! My Viera ears had a headband base underneath the wig, plus they also were built around a craft foam template and had a thick gauge wire running through them, too. Here’s a diagram, hopefully it makes sense!

White leotards are so tricky! I’d suggest looking into a seamless, nude-colored dance bra that matches your skin tone. Maybe something like this? Search around that site, they have a variety of styles and you may find something that will work! Otherwise, maybe try a full body tight under the leotard. I’m not sure how much support you need for your bust (I’m super flat so I can get away without a bra), but that’s another option!
I’ve only ever used bottom lashes for Stocking, and those were individual lashes that I applied one at a time. I used the same method of minimal glue, letting it set for ~30 seconds before applying them, then holding them in place until the glue dried. I think individual lashes look more natural than strip lashes for that area, so that would be my recommendation!
I have a lot of friends who order eyelashes online, but personally I just get mine from Sally’s Beauty Supply or Cosmo Beauty (a downtown Chicago store). Cosmo has great lashes for only $1.99 so I’m definitely a fan of those, haha. Otherwise Ardell lashes are fantastic! You can even find ‘em at stores like CVS, Walgreens, your local chain grocery store, etc.
If you’re just starting to use fake lashes, here are a couple tips I can offer:
Here’s a great video tutorial showing the whole process!
Remember: it gets easier with practice. Trust me. I’ve been using them for years and this past Katsucon was the first time I was actually satisfied with how I put them on.
