Greetings all,

I think I found a great idea for a 1st cross-play costume... it's an origional and should be easy to make.

Sundress cat-girl... I'm planning on finding white cloth with sun flowers on it and make a sun dress with spaghetti straps and use the same cloth for arm band thingies that cover most the hand and go up the arms like the long opera gloves (think belldandy around the hands. White leggings and white or yellow sandles. and a long wavy wig with cat ears.

I'll need someone to help me shave the arms, chest and legs.

What do you guys and gals think?

If I loose enough weight I'll do it for Ani-Magic... I'll need help with makeup though.

EDIT: I don't have the adams apple problem that guys have... so that is in my favor. I don't know what I'll do about the boobage but I can always make the dress higher cut and use a strapless bra. that or sew a strapless bra into the dress.

EDIT (continued)I plan on making the dress "top of the knee" knee-length

From,
Joe

Thanks Menchi for the advice on the sandles. When I think about that would be a good match.

I do have a huge scar on the top on my right shoulder and if I don't find a way to cover it concincingly I'll make those, "just of the shoulder" shoulder sleaves I see on some dresses.

I'm not really broad shouldered but since I'm 320 pounds it seems like I am. When I slim down they will get back to normal. My arms lack any muscle definition.

I hope to lose a lot of weight so I can do this.

FRom,
Joe

I'm sure, at the rate at which you're going, you'll be able to lose the weight you want to lose...
(I'm actually a bit envious... I've been chubby since I was eight, and, no matter how much I try, I can do nothing more than to maintain my weight... that doesn't make me want to give up, though; I'm too stubborn for that ^_~)
For the scar, if the shoulder sleeves don't work, I would suggest using concealer... concealer is the greatest for that sort of task ;)

I dunno... if you're going to do an original, I suggest having it all drawn out if you don't already. Because an idea may sound really nice in your head, but once you get it all made and put on it can be a vastly different story. Kind of like cooking I guess, tossing lots of things you like to eat together won't necessarily make something you will want to eat end the end.

As for make up, research it on the web. Enlist the help of a female friend to help you buy some. Or even go really late at night to a walmart, and if the cashier or anyone asks, say your wife/girlfriend ran out and she sent you out so she could look her best at work tomorrow... I've went in during normal business hours and got wax, shaving cream and razors and the lady didn't even raise an eyebrow. People don't care as much as I initially thought they would. It's all a matter of doing it and having a story should anyone question you. And if you're calm and convincing, no one will be the wiser. =3

you could so go as Asuka ^_^! she has a yellow sundress, plus her little red hairclip thingies could be esily adapted into cat ears :3, it would be really cute, plus I don't think I have ever seen a crossplayed asuka before! good luck with whatever you do:)

As far as makeup/clothes/femme stuff goes... if you go into speciality shops for any of it, say a Merle Norman for makeup, or a Vicky's for lingerie, during their slow times, you shouldn't have any problems. They've seen it all. The people at Frederick's of Hollywood are the greatest, though. And I LOOOVE the water bra. I felt it bounce when I ran. Odd, but cool. :-D
