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.

Support your local /k/ommandos and buy stuff from them.

Has a shit-ton of stuff, overseas shipping prices are a bitch though.

STALKER is very cheap and easy to cosplay. Just pick a parka, pick some pants, pick a gasmask, and get some bags and other accessories to personalize.

Mixing camos is sinful. Don't do it.

Post pictures of results please. Metro cosplay is sadly underrated

It's almost that time of year again! Some questions to get us started:

>Are you making a wardrobe post this year?

>Do you have any special photo setups planned?
>How much did your wardrobe grow?

This year will be my first, I only had one dress last year.

My wardrobe has obtained a pair of ouji shorts, 5 dresses, 2 blouses, a cutsew, and 5 pairs of shoes.

I'm not sure how to do a set up, but I'll probably just do a layout on my bed
>>
>Are you making a wardrobe post this year?
I would like to but I'm hesitant. Is anyone even interested in a mostly oldschool wardrobe?

>Whose wardrobes do you want to see?
I enjoy seeing everyone's posts,honestly.

>Whose did you like from last year, and why?
Obsixwi's,love all the black and subtle detailing on the pieces!

Nope.

I'm looking forward to alyssiumbaby, obsixwi, pyro-something and the cat ladies.

All the heavily themed wardrobes. I think it's really cute.

Not really. I might do a video.

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.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

For wiring and control, the phrase to google is "DIY LED matrix." The rabbit hole goes as deep as you want it to. Also learn to solder, it comes in handy!

Got the weird idea for a Flowey costume. Surround the display with appropriate petals and use the display and possibly a voice changer to mess with con-goers.

Sup /cgl/. This is my first time in this part of 4chan but long story short gonna cosplay for the first time, need help. So if you can please answer my questions.

>1) What type of foam would you recommend for a beginner that's cheap but will look very good?

I've stumbled upon a bunch of boards saying E.V.A foam or wonderfoam and all that crap.

>2) Are there any tutorials out there that show first timers on how to actually make armor pieces and such

Just look up eva tutorial on youtube. It's not that hard you fuckwad.
>>
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/

have black ribbon about 6,3. what should i do with it? (no lolita outfits, sorry)
35 replies and 12 images submitted. Click here to view.
>>
It takes a lot more than ribbon to make a coord. Literally wtf are you looking for, ribbon is for making bows and trim. I have about 20 spools for making bows and rosettes for my accessories
>>
>>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
>>
>>8786866

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.

Talking points:

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.

> any cons in your area coming up?
Pensacon is coming up in Feb. Hopefully this year will be better.

> What con are you planning on attending this 2016?

Metrocon, Mechacon, Holiday Matsuri, and AFO

I would love a full Final Fantasy Tactics Advance group. One can dream~

Omni in March I think? Other than that there's just Mega but that's not for a good while.

Mega, Metro, Tampa Bay, AFO, Holmat, maybe Super?
