Once again I am in the mood to cosplay a half naked video game character.
This time however I wanna cosplay as a Desire Demon from Bioware's Dragon Age Origins. c:
Not only is Bioware practically in my own backyard, but I love the game a lot, and I want to cosplay a character from there. After giving some thought I found that I suit none of the main characters, recognizable or not.
Then of course I was looking at the lovely Chocobo Chic's (http://www.cosplay.com/costume/278481/) Neytiri costume and I couldn't help but think how similar it would be to DA:O Desire Demon's.
Front (http://media.moddb.com/images/games/1/13/12045/19_desire_demon.jpg)
Backside (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2756/4125260024_cb8e463868_o.jpg)

I have some basic ideas for what I am going to do to make this costume, but there are a few things that looking at I am curious on how to do.
For one, I'm not sure if I actually want to put little dangles on my nipples and pose for photos. Chocobo Chic says that for her Neytiri costume she used latex breast cups and she used body paint on them. That is an appealing thought and I would like to find some, but I can't seem to find a pair online. @ w@';; Help with that?

The second part is the fire on their head. You can see that their skull goes into a point at the back and then surround by purple, fireish stuff. Would it just be best to make something for the pointed skull and ignore the firesque parts or is there something I can do to have a similar effect and not look to cheesy?

Any other ideas or opinions on any other part to the costume would be awesome! ^o^ I do plan on making the 'pants' a bit less revealing and a bit more tasteful and most likely this won't be worn to a con, and rather be given a photoshoot and photos sent to Bioware. c:
Thank you so much!

I couldn't find the cups sorry, maybe you could ask neytiri though. Since it might be hard to hid a fan, leds, and some silk strips in your hair how about some leds and something that smokes? ^o^

Id recommend just not doing the fire at all to avoid damaging the coolness of the costume (not that Im doubting your artistic ability to sculpt foam or whatever material, its just most times Ive seen people try to do fire it didnt turn out too well).
An idea I did have that you could possibly do somehow is this... You know those fiber optic stands that change colors? Maybe you could find a way to build those into the head piece, cut them to alternating lengths to give it a more natural look, and then somehow rig them to give off a purple-ish glow.

If you dont know what Im talking about look here...

Im not sure how much this would cost, and I have no idea how you would even go about implementing it into the costume, but it would look VERY cool IMO.

Hmm. P= I never thought of that idea.
I'll look into that! Thank you! <3

CzarN--
Fiber optics was one of my first ideas, but then I was like, "Gahh! IDK!" But if someone else has a similar idea then it must mean that it isn't a terrible one! <3 Thank you so much! I'll look to see how costly it might be. > w<
