Cosplaying with a Sollux Captor Costume will be a slightly involved Homestuck option. Primary costume items include his black shirt with a gemini zodiac symbol, his red and blue lens sunglasses, grey pants, one black and one white shoe, grey skin and horns. Note, we have provided two accurately shaped horn sets for Sollux’s double horns as well as orange, yellow and red paint to DIY paint the horns the correct color.

Sollux Captor is one of the twelve troll characters in Homestuck. He is also known by his Trollian handle, twinArmageddons. As his handle suggests, he is infatuated with the recurrence of doubles in all aspects of his life. It also references his fate of dying twice in two distinct armageddons. This alludes to his ability to foresee events, and revels his fate to go blind in the near future. He is associated with the zodiac sign Gemini and he has two matching horns protruding from either side of his head. As common with his species, he has a unique typing quirk that identifies his communication in Homestuck. Carrying along the theme of two, he doubles all of his “i’s,” replaces all of his “s’s” with “2” and his “to’s” and “too’s” with “two.” This gives his speech the impression of a lisp.
