Bahahaha yeah dollar stores can be quite awesome ... perhaps Value Village or something like that too would have a stash of feathers somewhere lmao

My friend has started on his from what I understand. I won't be doing mine until probably July as I have to take an exam at the end of June because I deferred it back in april due to work complications.

In the meantime, I'm looking at what to swap out for my next cosplays. I want to steer away from the EVA foam as it is flexible, but creases very easily depending on how heavy you are with your movements/poses (I did a lot which banged the hell out of certain parts of the costume!). I'm looking into using Resin/Plastics for the next ones.

I'm also looking at the Metal Gear Rising cosplay a little deeper - that is to say, browsing the RPF quite diligently - to find how I'd be able to do the visor as seen in the MGR: Revengeance Trailer (where it closes over his face). I need to find a visor material that is tinted as well.

The raiden cosplay may be difficult, so I'm not going to make any promises. But I do have a year, and I am an engineer sooo....

Not started yet other than planning.

I have another cosplay to make for FanExpo before I start on AN's. After August though, I'll be starting it for sure.

[QUOTE=A.Swallowtail;4401882]Well I know I'm going to better the cosplay I did this year as it wasn't even 100% completed :3 But I'll be working on my KOS MOS v.1 outfit some more but I also wanted to do another. Problem is I have too many ideas >.< I was considering Midna's true form from Zelda, Lenneth from Valkyrie Profile, or even something simple like Bad Launch from Dragon Ball~ XD[/QUOTE]

COSPLAY LENNETH. DO IT DO IT DO IT.

I'm starting my Lady Tyrael cosplay next week. I'm gonna need a bunch of time to make that armor. Lol.

#20 ShinobiXikyu on 6 years ago

Since I'm wearing next AN's cosplays at Con-G first, I'm in active planning mode for both. Quorra's getting started in July, and I'll probably start properly on Twilight Sparkle in October. But I'm keeping a look out for a lavender short-sleeved blouse in thrift shops or dark blue just-past-shoulder-length wigs on sale in the meanwhile.

RAIDEN YES :D Doooooo itttt it would be amaaaazing XD Especially if you could actually get the visor to move O.O :D

[QUOTE=DreamKitty;4402021]COSPLAY LENNETH. DO IT DO IT DO IT.[/QUOTE]

:D She does look awesome...and I was looking at more pictures of her... Now I've got a problem. Midna or Lenneth? They would both be fun and challenging lol. I could always try to do both if I started early... maybe lol

#22 WARPAINTandUnicorns on 6 years ago

This is a no as I need to finish my FanExpo and Con-G cosplays first. ;)

#23 Leeah on 6 years ago

[QUOTE=Miliyah;4401921]
i can only imagine the conversations people will have with you if you're still going to go around pokemon battling :P[/QUOTE]

I'm not sure I'll be doing that next year because I only got two challenges (one pokemon, one rock paper scissors) also, I'm not sure the new mod will allow another thread like that, it's not cosplay related : \ (and teahouse forums are so empty that threads from 2010 are still front-page in some sections, so it's not even worth the effort to post there).

but yes the conversations; "what level are your pokemon?" "OVER 90!!!!!!!!!!!!"


OT:
As long as we're talking about future cosplays;I am going to be using PVC or polystyrene board for the armour, does anybody know where I can buy that? I figured home depot might, but I can't find them on the website.

[QUOTE=SuperBee;4401906]Mwhahaha Excellent! Love peer pressure eh? I got pressured into making Yuna's wedding dress... Does anyone know where to get a large amount of feathers AND how to attach them to the dress...?[/QUOTE]

I would use felt/foam and not real feathers. It's cheaper, less mess, less smell and easier to get a uniform look without feathers getting easily damaged.
If you insist on real feathers, turkey feathers are larger. You usually end up having to cut feathers though as they don't have nice tips.

officiak forums are getting an update, so hopefully traffic goes back there :DD

#28 SuperBee on 6 years ago

I wanted to challenge you but I only saw you on Sunday AND I had my hands full :(

On topic:

I want to make a skull prop for Hex. The skull is somewhat transparent. How can I achieve this? Is resin the only answer and if so how bad does it smell? I cannot use smelly stuff due to health reasons.

DireKitty: I want to use something that makes it look like real feathers. I agree that foam and felt are cheaper but can they give enough of an illusion to real feathers?

That's all right, I understand that not everyone is able to get their friends to wait for them for 10-20 minutes while they stop for a pokebattle x P
Maybe next year I can arrange a "micro-tourny " at a specific time and place.
Oh, and I saw your gyrados briefly, thought it was pretty epic.

OT:
Also thinking of joining in on my friend's pokemon group... I don't see why they feel the need to do a different cosplay for each day of the con though : \ but if I joined them, I was going to do a Coffing gajinka (complete with foam head of course)

Hmm, how about..... [URL="http://jake-of-spades.deviantart.com/art/Paper-Wings-IV-88879311"]PAPER[/URL]

You could likely build something similar with foam (as it has structure).


Only issue with paper is rain will kill it. Real feathers also take a beating in the rain. [URL="http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/014/7/5/green_and_black_fancy_foam_wings_for_puppets_by_twilightsaint-d4me6df.jpg"] Foam wouldn't fair badly.[/URL]
