Cosplay






In this tutorial I used the layered tube “Midra Cosplay” from
This tube is from Barb’s latest pack 84 and can be purchased at

I used the kit “Cutting Edge” from
The kit can also be purchased at

You will need my mask

I used the font




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 800 by 650 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 85%.

Paste frame 5 and resize it 50%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect.  We will come back to this.

Paste the main tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 70% and rotate 85 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4, resize 35% and duplicate, place the two copies in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 15, resize, 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36 on the top, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 35, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 25%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the close up tube between the frame and the paper, resize 80%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, position the tubes in the frame, select the interior of the frame and expand the select as before, invert it and hit delete on each tube, deselect.  Change the blend modes on the tube to “Luminance (Legacy)” and lower the opacity on them to around 65.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 2 on the top, resize 65% and place in position.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
