View Full Version : My first costume....

07-31-2002, 09:43 AM
Just wondering what to make. I have little to no skill :confused: in costume making tho I can probably get advice/help in the actualy nuts and bolts of it.

I was just wondering that to make. Simple would be preferred, and also cheap is good. Wierd looking :bouncer: is also good, but so long as it ain't that hard to make,,,,,,

All ideas welcome tho i may ask for links to piccys if I don't know who you're talking about.....:rolleyes:

Hi Narsil ^.^ What do you look like? It's easier to cosplay a char that you already have the features and hair for ^.^ Also, what kind of stuff do you like? Which series or video games?

I look like this


Im the guy with the blue bow tie on the left.

I like all kinds of stuff, from Ranma 1/2 to NGE to Kenshin to the Irresponsible Captain Tylor. I also like Chobits, tho I've only seen a few eps. The Escaflowne series, Vandred, Excel saga (a small amount of) Digi -charat(ditto)thats all I can think of atm.

Im open to suggestions.

Hmm... I think you could do a Shinbo(Chobits). It would be a super easy costume cosplay. All you have to do is find a overshirt that looks like his and buy a little Sumomo plushy to put on your shoulder. I think you already look alot like him, just put some gel at the tips of your hair to make it alittle more spikey^_^

i have a hard enough time deciding myslef, but i think Liiy has a good idea there.

I know it's not part of Narsil's list but to me he looks like a Lupin http://www.italway.it/lupin/Images/1/lupin.jpg
it would be an easy cosplay too if your just starting out

I wanna get into character, so which anime is he from? I might be able to get an idea from that.

You want simplicity? How about Heero in his normal clothes? It doesn't get much simplier than that. Or what about being Kuno? You just need a white robe and a stick!

I agree with Kuno. You could definitely pull him off. How's your Shakespeare? :P

I think I'll go with Kuno, but I'll have to brush up on the quotes......

mind you,now that I think about it, I do know a few, even tho it's cos Im a mild Trekkie.....

What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason:snoring:! how infinite in faculties! in form and moving, how express and admirable! in action how like an angel:angel: ! in apprehension, how like a god:sunny: ! the beauty of the world ! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me :( ; no, nor woman neither:blubber:, though by your smiling you seem to say so.^_^

I think I'll be ok....

Now...Where to find a stick......

*dismembers broom*


Right - I think I can sort the clothes, so I appear to be sorted./

You guys are great....
