View Full Version : Invader Zim Help!

02-01-2011, 11:01 PM
I know its been done but my sisters and I are planning on cosplaying as Invader Zim, Dib and Gir for a convention in the summer. Although I have ideas on what to do for the majority I wanted a little adivce.

Dib: His outfit is simple but I need help on how I should go about the hair. I plan to be Dib and have long black hair that I thought to spike but I'm still unsure.

Zim: Plan to make a headband for the antenaes but not sure how I should go about the shoulder blade bits. And also can anyone reccommend good body paint?

Any sort of advice will be appreciated!:)

**And one thing, I do plan to sort of genderbend the characters since I don't wish to cut my hair too much.

There have been a few threads about Dib's hair in the Wig section of the forums; and I would say that his hair requires a wig unless you want to do a LOT of awkward cutting to your own hair. You could obviously translate the fact that he has no hair in the back several different ways with a wig (using a bald cap, or just cutting the hair short there), and as for the hair scythe you can work with covering some sort of foam or wire structure with extension hair.

try kryolan aqua color for the green.. I'd say number 092 or 730 or one similar.... Finishing spray is a MUST. I've only had experience with these through a friend who did Shadow form Sora. As long as she used the finishing spray, she didn't seem to have much of a problem with sweating it off or rub-off.

You could use some of the soft foam sheet from around the quilting area and just cut it in triangles and make a pink slip-cover. It would be comfortable that way, and keep shape.

I've seen a handful of good Zim cosplays. I love love love Invader Zim, so good luck on yours! :D
