View Full Version : Lal Mirch Cosplay~

Okay so i figured bandages, shorts, and shoes should be easy enough but now for the goggles, shoulder guard, cloak, shirt, arm gun, belt, boxes. Oh and wig info.

For the goggles i was thinking i could get plain white ski goggles with red lenses but it wouldn't have the same look where it has streaks of orangeish white and red. Since i'd only be wearing them for mostly just pictures what if i painted them but still left large enough spaces to see? I mean, i used to walk around with my hair over my eyes completely and see perfectly still so it wouldn't be hard for me.

And how would i make the side parts that stick out and the little antenna? Could i buy really cheap stero head phones from the dollar store, fudge them up so that i don't have the wire any more, attache the goggles to them, paint them and add an antenna made out of like a short wooden dowel?

Then for the Shoulder guard and Arm weapon i don't know :<

Then there is her boxes I could try to make it from this little foldable i saw but how would i make it stable?

For the shirt i'd personally not like to make it but i know i have to. But how would i make the giant hole in the shirt with out it not wanting to get bigger and what would i use for the strands that are attacked to it?

And now the cloak/belt, i've never dyed fabric before then again i'm still a noob sewer so i'd probably wiggle off to my grandma to make it for it. >.<

How would i dye it so that it had the same pattern? of lightish red? Would it be easier if i got the cloak color and a color of the light red in fabric then dyed the bottom of the cloak in that dark red and sewed the lighish red on where the two colors meet?

And to make the collar stand up could we make the collar really long, bat it on the part thats around the neck then bring the extra fabric down and sew it so that it still has the folded look while holding it's shape? If you don't understand i can try to draw a picture >.<;;

and where the fudge am i going to find a pure grey none detailed belt? XD

Where would i get the right wig color for her as well?

Okay so my friend from school said that once she is done making her full body armor she will make my shoulder piece and hand gun <3 and i talked with someone about my idea for the cloak and they liked it. and a bit on the shirt as well.

So now i'm still stuck with the pacifier, boots, belt, rings, boxes, make up.

I'm going to dye my hair midnight black so that in the light it looks blue :3

lol, I don't have answers to all your questions but...

As for pacifier... i would definitely mold it out of Clay. You can use those... air-dry clay for a lighter feeling pacifier. Personally, I would mold it with sculpy or premo clay (but you have to bake it) and it is probably a lot heavier.

For make-up (the flame thing on her cheeks)... I would use Eye-liner (those cheap ones you can buy at your local drug store). It can be a pain to take off though. XD But I think it resists smudging and fading more than coloring it with eye-shadow.

oh well of course i wasn't going to use eye shadow, our walgreens and walmart carry the OUT there color eye liners. and on hobbylobby.com i found this

whoot (http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/plastic-ball-ornament-207639/?WishlistItemId=256131) If it's the right size i might get it and use cardboard for the other little piece and i'm sure i can find transparent gray paint as well as black and do that :3

It's slowly coming together but con is in 2 weeks TT.TT

Does anyone know about dying? cause as a later project i was wanting to dye my cloak but how would i get the right design that her cloak has on the jagged part?

So i got my shirt and currently working my magic on it :3 i have the sleeve all done and now i'm just needing to do the design for the cut out part and make it into a tank top.

I figured what i can do for the shirts and boots and i have a piece of fabric for my cloak. just need to get two more colors and put it all together.

Then the goggles i don't think i can do anything about those till later.
