Fwee I love the whole team in The Authority X3 Gogoedward, where are you planning to wear Terra and Superboy? I'm guessing WonderCon05... which I won't be attending this year T_T

Sarcasm, don't your Morpheuses and Death technically count as DC?

There's pretty slim pickings for anything mildly cosplay related in Kansas.

In fairness, Marvel does have a character called "Sandman," an old-school Spider-Man villain.

I've done the Teen Titans cartoon version of Raven, but I don't think it looked very good. I love DC comics, though. My friends were just making fun of me last night because I was talking about this theory I have about something, and they said I have "DC Logic"...as in unrealistic. XD My favorite character of all time is Catwoman, though. To the point where I'm almost afraid to cosplay as her because I'm not worthy. ^_~ Anyway, I also plan on doing the cartoon version of Terra, and making my fiance be Robin. Well, not MAKING him, but you know what I mean. I also have a friend making a Slade costume, and another friend that wants to be Beast Boy.

I'm currently planning to make a Jason Todd costume (Robin-the one that Joker killed in the series, a Death in the family.) I'm planning on using Jim Lee's drawing of him from Batman Hush book 2. I'm a huge DC comics fan so I know I'm going to have to do quite a few more afterwards. :-D

I did Batman. I'm pretty sure that counts.

I've wanted to do the Golden Age Starman for quite some time now. It's just one of those riduclous costumes that could only exist then, and has a certain amount of charm for me. Plus, his weapon is a glowing, art-deco dildo. That's just cool.

MMm..... as I'm a total DC whore... a Brainiac 5 costume is in the works right now... to debut at Comic-con this summer...
Ah! I just want to be green! I swear, even if he had the stupidest character evar, he'd be my favorite superhero just for being green... (Gar Logan doesn't count because he's all like, "Boobies! Oooh! Boobies! I'm a total perv!"... not really... but still... sorry, Gar.)

In the fall, I succumbed to the Titans cartoon just so I could cosplay Deathstroke (twas a fun costume, even if I was blind in it... ah... blind)... yeah... comic deathstroke would not be happening... blue scale-y spandex...

*sniffle*
I kinda' wish I were half a foot shorter so that I could cosplay Impulse, my other favorite superhero... the unbearable cuteness... its... so... cute...



Someone mentioned Sandman... I'd love to do endless cosplay someday... I almost wish I weren't a performer, cause then I'd be free to chop off my hair and cosplay Delirium... best endless evar...

*raises a hand sheepishly* I have fallen into the Titan trap… I’ll (hopefully if it’s done) be doing a Starfire cosplay at Katsucon this year… I had hoped that I could talk my friend into a Raven cosplay with me… but looks like I’ll be a lone Titan *smiles* :o

...not sure if this'll help you, or anyone else planning on making Teen Titans' costumes from the recent animated series; but they've released a costume accessory set at Walmart/Target(and probably other toy stores)that includes Robin's mask, the TT communicator, shirt, and gloves. The communicator looks pretty decent, though the rest of the accessories are a little second rate(LoL it's a set for kids, don't have too high of hopes). So if you've got $12 to spend for at least the communicator(it does chime the anthem)...

Indeed they shall. I think my buddy is sane for choosing Terra, especially since i have to worry about her costume as well as mine. My cape was just so hard to handle due to the sheer size of my fabric @_@

I hope they have Raven's belt...i doubt it though. I'll probably make my own so it looks more metallic and jewely. I saw the raven costume and it was tacky, especially the use of off white pants >_<

That's not a bad idea. After all, few of us have the physical build of a comic book hero, and using a black base with bright colored lines and shapes would help to "trick" the eye. GL costumes are good to experiment with too, since there are so many different ones that doing your own unique variation could still look identifiable as a GL... kind of like Jedi.

Beware_UY7

Yea for Deathstroke cosplay!!! Being a girly... I couldn't possibly pull off the comic costume (that and scaley lookin' spandex is a little odd)... but the armour in the animated Titans worked to make me seem bigger than I am... that and my Robin was 8 inches shorter than me... helps me looker taller.
Cool beans, indeed, though. Keep me updated!

Oh, but Ron Pearlman (sp?) is such an amusing voice actor... though I don't care for Slade's characterization, you can't really get that kind of depth in a children's cartoon show, y'know?

And Idenitity Crisis... aha... my girly cried so much... And I just laughed my buttocks off. But we both agreed that an interesting twist would have been for Batman to have been the killer... there was enough evidence to support it, if you really wanted to... but oh well. S'not like I want Bats to be the baddy... but it would've been interesting~.

But this is a cosplay forum... so I suppose I should say something cosplay related as well.

In defense of animated!Deathstroke

...who would be cooler if he kneecapped someone in the teli show, but we know its not gonna' happen... ah well. (Ah! Poor Impulse!... he's my favorite superhero... but I still thought, "Dayamn, Deathstroke's cool." when he shot poor lil' Bart.)

ACXchan
02-04-2005, 07:36 PM
Haha that picture is awesome, I like TT Robin but man sometimes I just want to hit that brat in the face XD I cried for him in Identity Crisis though T_______T Well... that is assuming TT Robin is Tim Drake and not an AU Dick Grayson... or is he an AU Tim @D@? But anyway I agree I guess I'm just disappointed by the fact that Deathstroke's not allowed to be, well, Deathstroke, in the cartoon.

I loved the Identity Crisis twist regarding the "League within the League" and what Zee did... okay no spoilers X3 I expected Bats to be the only one with the brains this time around though. The interaction between Wally and Ollie was also fantastic, I still have to go buy the Flash tie in.

ADD: On a cosplay note... I wouldn't mind cosplaying Nightwing if I had the body for it @D@

I love Raven's old outfit from back when I was reading New Teen Titans - the dark blue or later white dress/cloak. I probably will eventually do that one since its stayed on my to do list for years.

Beware_UY7
02-05-2005, 02:40 AM
I didn't spoil it! I didn't reveal anything other than the fact that Bats wasn't the killer! I wasn't me!

Sadly, all the hints in the cartoon point to it being Dick (blech, I like Tim better, too.) For example: the circus scene in 'Haunted' and Nosyarg Kcid (Robin's doppleganger [sp?]) in 'Fractured'.... that, and the Titans team is the team that is present when Dick is a Titan... and Tim is never leader of the Titans (Not yet anyway... although Tim!Batman was... but he was scary. [The costume was hot though] but once he ripped out a gun from the utility belt and just shot the joker's daughter... I was like, "WTF?")

Yup. Sad stuff... way back when the show started, my girly and I were uber-hopeful that Robin would turn out to be Tim... but the producers say that it will never be revealed... but there are enough hints against our poor little hopes...

Okay. Teh cosplay.
Thanks for the compliments. Its great knowing they look good, since wearing the costumes causes near blindness... so its not like we could really see eachother.

I don't care for Dick as Robin... but as Nightwing, he's pretty cool, so long as he's not wearing his Disco-y uniform.
Sometimes artists come up with totally awesome chara designs that leave you in total awe... and sometimes... you just have to wonder what they were ON. (Purple-mask BeasyBoy, for example.)

*sigh* Like the Legion of Superheroes remake... Agh. Now that Brainy's all old and masculine looking, I can't cosplay his most current appearance.... I'mma just go back and do his incarnation from the older comics.


Alors... I haven't read it... but does Deathstroke get any costume changes in his comic? Like... what does he wear while he has an artifcial eye?

He gets a new Blue and black costume sometime in the early 90's, but I think the heads at DC just desited to switch back to his Orange and Blue uniform. Personaly, the black and blue didnt settle in...made him look too moder, a bit like the Cartoon incarnation...and they took out his floppy shoes! T_T

Don't get me started on the Legion reboot. I really don't like the way a bunch of characters are drawn now, ESPECIALLY Brainy. :P And I don't see why they NEEDED a reboot. Bleh. At least it seems they've kept Shikari.

Indeed. Well, Brainy's still the same arsehole that I love... so~... After the Titans/Legion crossover... I was expecting soemthing like that, y'know? For them to pick up where the Legion had left off there. Oh, well... I still lurffles them.

You can still fight for underagers, Brainy, even if you look 40!!!

ACXchan
02-06-2005, 10:49 AM
Aww I like Dick!Robin although I do prefer him as Nightwing (in the black and blue costume). I used to think cartoon TT Robin was Tim Drake because the cartoon came out years after Dick had already struck out on his own. It would have been odd to rewrite his and everyone else's history so late in the running. And TT Robin's character design is pretty similar to Tim Drake's from the older (but not old school) Batman cartoon. Ah well...

For Flash characters I do like the new Captain Boomerang and have thought about cosplaying as either him or Pied Piper. I'm not so sure how Owen would be received, I've already heard some people reeeaaally don't like him but there's such an interesting theory behind his origins @D@

Deathstroke's shoes make me think of that recent trend of muffler-sized leg warmers for girls XD

02-06-2005, 11:01 PM
Well, The new Titans series with Tim as Robin started after the cartoon... right? *checks comic* Or around the same time...
And the NEW TITANS (1980's series) plots and villans are the ones that appear in the cartoon (And OMG they're finally going to introduce Trigon into the cartoon!)... I mean, they could've chosen the Titans from any time period, but NEW TITANS was, by far, the most popular, with the most developed characters and all that cool stuff (I wonder if Jericho will get to make an animated debut?). It's sad that now I'm all, "Robin=Dick", when before I was like, "Please, no, not Dick. Tim is cooler. Dick doesn't use the bo-staff! So it HAS to be Tim!" But Robin wearing long pants and weilding a bo-staff are the only Tim-like qualities that TT animated Robin has. Well, production staff is a fine explanation for both of those, because Robin + weapon= cool. And Robin + pants= not quite as queer. Ah well.

*sigh* I'm not sure if I would enjoy the current Titans series as much if it were animated, anyway. The comic is done so well, that any other attempt to tell the same story would probably be a major dissapointment, y'know?


On another note; 90's Slade Wilson is scary. And it would make smexy smexy cosplay. If he had school girl socks.

ACXchan
02-07-2005, 07:11 PM
Haha I totally couldn't follow you there, UY7, I haven't been reading Teen Titans for that long but it does make sense that they would base the cartoon on the more popular run of the Teen Titans universe and not the latest one.

Slade's socks are leg mufflers foo' XD

Wonder Woman is without a doubt my favourite superhero!! I'm currently working on Terry Dodson's version of the Amazon, to be worn at a con in April. I've been working on it for over a year now, so it will be wonderful to finally have it finished!! I'm up to doing all the 'metal' bits, and then it will be finished!!

I also have a lot of love for Donna Troy, and would like to make a few of her outfits - the classic red halter jumpsuit, the starry 'troia' jumpsuit, and her Wonder Woman armour (from the newest release of comics). I'm hoping to make her animated costume for the same April con to go with my friend's Animated Raven :D
