List of costumes I would like (or have committed) to make at some point in the future!

  • Xigbar (aiming to do as part of a group with [livejournal.com profile] alba_aulbath and [livejournal.com profile] dev_chieftain)
  • Pence (see above)
  • Barrel Spider Heartless
  • Ballroom gown Jenova
  • Quetzalcoatl GF

I'm sure there was another one I wanted to do that I've forgotten, too.

Obviously most of these will have to wait until I have a JOB. XD Hopefully I can at least get Xigbar and Pence done for AX next year...

Things left to do before AX:

  • Buy more Krazy Glue. I don't trust the Elmer's with these studs.
  • Buy more isopropyl alcohol for dye.
  • Finish the last doodads on the cape.
  • Dye and style the wig.
  • Maybe make the prosthetics.
  • Make sure the camera and GBA are fully charged.
  • Renew identification.
  • Pack.
  • Print out the airline ticket.
  • Fail to die.

Getting down to the wire, but I can totally do this!

First, the links:

Captain Xemnas - The Captain Planet jokes will NEVER. GET. OLD.

This Kind of World - Naminé teaches Kairi how to be safe from the fangirls. XD

And now, the cosplay babble!

I've nearly finished, actually. :D The bracelets, belt emblem, and pocketwatch are as done as they're going to be. The belt just needs studs. I'm painting the pin now. Waistcoat is sewn, pants and shirt are modified, I've had the stockings and shoes... I just need to finish off the cape, belt, and pin, and I'll be finished with the outfit!

That'll only leave the wig and the prosthetics. The prosthetics are still very iffy. The wig I'll pretty much have to do, since Manic Panic discontinued the color I'd need to make my own hair bright enough. >_< (Fuck you, Manic Panic. Fuck you.) I'm not sure how I'm going to do this beyond use an awful lot of Sharpie dye and maybe glue. Also, I so need a wig stand; as it is now I'll have to style on a willing victim volunteer's head.

But overall? Things are looking good! I think I'll have it done in time!

There is nothing quite like the feeling of a costume coming slowly together under your hands. ♥

Cosplay babble! )

So, there's still a bunch of work, but THE CLOTHES ARE DONE and that was my biggest mental stumbling block. If I keep on top of things now, I'm good. ♥

So, confronted with the problem of how to make Johnny K. Gambino's bracelets, I hit upon a brilliant solution - cut the basic shape out of cardstock, and then wrap it thickly with gauze to give it mass! That way, it'd be soft and resilient and very easy to wear. Then, I thought, I could simply coat the whole thing in liquid latex, and give it a gold sheen!

Well, the cardstock and gauze worked out, but the latex didn't. Turns out it soaks right into the gauze. The first pair of bracelets had to be set aside.

I'm doing much better on this next pair - it turns out acrylic paint works nicely for smoothing over the surface of the gauze, so I figured I'd just go with that and apply gold paint later. The trouble is, however, that the gauze requires 50 bajillion coats of acrylic paint before it's suitably smooth to apply real color.

I've used almost an entire tube of white acrylic paint and I'm still not done.

So much painting... so very much painting... T_T
