...Or whichever of the 10 names you prefer. I didn't see any of these around, so here we are. This is meant to be a general thread about cosplaying from the show.

I keep having this nagging itch in the back of my mind about doing the ladybug suit, and it'd be a totally amazing chance to finally do something plugsuit-style, but there are too many other things to do first OTL.

What did everyone want to discuss? I'm in the middle of a Ladybug costume, but I used a red zentai suit as a base, cut off the mask/hood and hemmed the collar, and I made a circle stencil (out of thick interfacing, not that it really matters what you use) and I did the outline of the spots in Sharpie on the parts I could reach, and I have a friend coming over to do the places I couldn't reach myself. I did that while wearing it so the spots wouldn't move or end up in weird places when I put the thing on. As for the wig, I hadn't touched a wig that needed heavy styling in a long time, but this is what I came up with. It was important to me that the pigtails have that funny shape instead of just being normal pigtails.

One looks better than the other, so I'll probably mess with it some more. This is the base wig I used: [url]http://www.ebay.com/itm/252226193240?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=551058629107&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT[/url]

Ummmm...that's all I can think of right now, in reference to a Ladybug costume. For anyone doing Marinette in normal clothes, here are the items I've purchased so far:

Jeans: [url]http://www.amazon.com/ICONOFLASH-Womens-Pull-Capri-Jeggings/dp/B00VXS4A18/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1463073323&sr=8-1&keywords=pink+capri+jeans[/url]

Shoes: [url]http://www.ebay.com/itm/361431999232?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=630794337982&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT[/url]

I'm sure I could have found cheaper shoes, but these are super cute and I love them. I wear them all the time just in everyday life.

^ Looks great so far, Arlette! Can't wait to see it all come together.

I'm thinking that I'm gonna tackle a Miraculous Moves (that breakdance AU) outfit, just for a Thursday of Otakon sort of thing, but also as an excuse to make some cute sweatpants for hanging out in (lol). Gonna sketch that up in the next couple of days, and then get to it!

Thanks! And I like that AU, though I don't know jack or shit about breakdancing culture.

We got the spot outlines on my suit, but one weird thing that we ran into is that she has spots in a weird place on the sides of her feet...like, not ankles, but the sides of her actual feel. My feet are normal human size, which means they aren't exactly big enough on the sides for that! I guess it's supposed to be back on her heel kinda, but I have very narrow shoulders, wrists, ankles, etc. and it just wouldn't work. So we skipped it. I decided that if anyone judges my missing spots, that's more their problem than mine!

Haha, I don't either. :'D But I can spin poi and glowstick, and those hand moves do share a little similarity with hip hop, so I'm just gonna make it up as I go when it comes to posing.

Also, WIP photo of the hat! Custom laser-cut acrylic letters. Had a nightmare of a time trying to get that mirroring on the back, but I'm pretty happy! Just waiting for my rivets to show up tomorrow, then I can paint on the spots and call it done. :D

I definitely wouldn't have caught the fact that you missed a spot way down on your foot-- you do what works for you!

OMG that looks amazing! So much detail!

I'm pretty sure people won't even notice a few missing spots. I think it's also important that the costume looks like it makes sense.

I impulse bought a wig with Adrien in mind and am thinking of making his everyday outfit. I do like Chat's design a lot, but I think such a body hugging costume is not on my comfort zone atm.

#9 StarsOfCassiopeia on 3 years ago

@Ri-tan That'll be fun, good luck! (And I know what you mean. I've been cosplaying for what feels like forever and full body superhero suits still intimidate me a little, ahahaha. :'D)

More progress pics too! Finished the hat and the top. Pants are basically done as well, but I'm debating replacing the waistband with red fabric instead of black-- what do you guys think?

Working on the earrings today, and maybe the wig as well, if I get sick of sewing my other cosplay!

Hello everyone! I'm working on a Ballerina version of Ladybug that an artist on Tumblr drew that gave me permission to cosplay! I bought a wig (still need to style it), bought the red fabric, black lace, tulle for the tutu, leggings and the gloves! I just need to buy demi pointe shoes and blue contacts and remake my mask :)

My friends and I just did a Ladybug group this past weekend at Fanime! Here are a few pics of us (I was guitar villain/Jagged Stone!)

Your group is so cute! <3

#14 Ness and Lucas on 3 years ago

I love those group photos! It's always so amazing to see such a big group of cosplayers.

Anyways my sister and I are planning to be a Ladybug and Antibug duo at Otakon. I have a few questions and I'd be really grateful if anyone could answer them.

1. What do you use for spots? We're thinking sticky felt. I know paint could work for Ladybug, but not for Antibug. Sticky felt can be surprisingly effective, but I'm curious about what others have done.

2. What do you do for shoes? I don't fancy walking around a con in my bare feet. Looking at the group pics, the Ladybug seems to have hidden some shoes on her! Any idea what kind of shoes would be best to hide under spandex?

#15 ilafatyu on 3 years ago

1: I've been playing around with stretch Wonder Under and so far it's been pretty effective. Just keep an eye on the heat.
