I'm going to Denver Comicon during 2016 and I wanted to go as a scavenger from Metro Last Light or a Stalker. Where could I find the clothes for either of them? They're both very similar. Sorry I'm new to cosplaying.
I've been absent from cgl for about a half a year and still want that sailor dress. Requesting coords with it, since I'm not into lolita but I fear id look to old for it and I wanna know what girls look like with it.
It's almost that time of year again! Some questions to get us started:
>Are you making a wardrobe post this year? >Whose wardrobes do you want to see? >Whose did you like from last year, and why? >Do you have any special photo setups planned? >How much did your wardrobe grow? >Do you think there will be less posts again this year?
Hey /cgl/, I have an idea for a costume I'd like to make an attempt on, but it involves a digital display on the front facing portion of the mask/helmet. Does anyone have any experience or tips on how one would go about doing so? I haven't found much in the way of kits that weren't for daft punk helmets.
tl;dr I want to be able to display pictures on a mask and don't know how.
Lurk a bit in the help thread before making a topic like this otherwise the regular here will just ignore you. There is also a general armor thread up right now that might be worth looking at.
1. EVA foam is cheap and a common go-to. It can be gotten cheaply at walmart, harbor freight etc. Its usually sold in 4 panel packs as workshop flooring or slightly thinner as yoga floor matting. EVA doesnt look good for armor though without considerable work.
2. Here is a guide showing some of the steps needed to make EVA foam armor look good. www.otakuandfit.com/seal-paint-foam-armor/

>>8786860 I feel like I shouldn't have to say this but OP is asking for costumes that need black ribbon in their construction because OP has a surplus of black ribbon. OP specified that they don't want to make use that ribbon for a lolita coord. Although to be fair OP should specify gender/media interests/etc because black ribbon is needed in a lot of outfits so we need something else to go on
Not the anon you replied to, but I was equally confused. Although I do freely admit that I'm not a cosplayer, and therefore think of black ribbons as raw material for anything, instead of something as specific as "what cosplay costumes specifically contain black ribbon".
Got 'The Life-changing Magic of Tidying up' as a Christmas gift from my sister. While I love the idea of getting rid of stuff and having more space in my place I don't feel it's really truly achievable as a cosplayer. Once upon a time I couldn't imagine selling my costumes but now that I live in a 1 bed, 1 bath apartment with limited shared garage space I totally get it. I would like to attempt to cut down on my clutter but with all my materials, tools and costumes I wouldn't know where to start.

I haven't done very much cosplay, but I live in a room at my mum's (housing is expensive and the place is close as fuck to my uni). I have one and a half drawer shelves allocated to my sewing and costume shit, which contains some of my lighter/more fragile fabrics, smaller costume pieces (ears/tails/masks), and all of my wigs which I keep in large minigrips, with longer ones braided and smaller ones just stuffed in. don't know what I'd do with a fully curly wig, but my shitty home-straightened one was braidable. larger bolts sit in plastic bags under my bed. my cosplay stuff fits into my closet alright. tools are stored in assorted places around the house, and my workplace is either my desk or the kitchen table depending on how much space I need. I don't hoard materials but I'm a huge procrastinator so I still have fabric bought for projects years ago sitting around, and the only fabric I've bought completely randomly is the rabbit one on pic related, because cute, cheap and Engrish.
No cosplay groups since I'm not really into the florida cosplay comm. Since I'm making a big investment this year theres only three cons i'm attending. MegaCon (yeah expensive as fuck but eh?) Metrocon (haven't been there in years) and of course Awa, my favourite con of the year.
>>8784823 > Any cons in your area coming up? Omni in March I think? Other than that there's just Mega but that's not for a good while.
> What cons are you planning on attending this 2016? Mega, Metro, Tampa Bay, AFO, Holmat, maybe Super?
> any big cosplay groups being planned this year? I legit have absolutely no idea what I'll be making come 2016 aside from Tatsumaki from OPM. Everything else is completely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
