View Full Version : my poor boobs *shakes head*

soooo, this is kinda a bizarre querry,.. but i must ask anyway.
i'm making carmilla from d2k-bloodlust, and the boobage-coverage is a bare minimal. anyone who knows me knows that that's half the reason i wanted to make this costume (hooray for scandalous costumes!)... but i have few ideas for how to make the ... small amount of fabric... err... stick to the twins. *sigh*
i saw a Shiva from FFVIII that was amazing, and she had the same sort of ... minimal boobage coverage... but i don't know how she did it. i don't <i>think</i> she used a bodysuit... *pout* any ideas?

I believe the Shiva costume you're talking about (is this it? http://www.lindze.com/) was a bodysuit. A heavily airbrushed bodysuit ^^;;. You could do that, or you could use lots and lots of double-sided tape or spirit gun to attach the fabric to your skin.

I wouldn't fuss too much with the bodysuit if you're comfy walking around with "EX-TREME BOOOOOBAGE!" lol. I've known some people who did really skimpy outfits, and they had success with double-sided tape. Use the craft/sewing stuff they have at the fabric store, it's much sticker than ordinary Scotch-style double sided tape. I'm not sure how spirit gum and fabric would mix, and it would be a pain to get out of; you'd have to use remover and all and the costume would be all sticky . . .
My two cents anyway.

I used spirit gum to stick my cammy stripes onto my legs... it completely ruined the fabric and left dark spots on the outside of the fabric :\
I'm doing Urd's purple dress (http://kellilla.com/me/cosplay/urd_ex.gif) for otakon, and thus far I'm planning on double sided tape to keep it in place. People keep telling me just to put some flesh coloured fabric down the front part, I just don't think that looks as good, yknow?

Bridal tape works wonders. Its basically the same as double sided tape, but I think it might be stronger.

Ok, so I've been planning a Felicia costume for a long time, but could NEVER find a full body, nude, mesh leotard! So finally I'd given up and lo and behold, a few days ago, I stumbled onto a site that not only had one, but also had opaque thigh-highs in a zillion different colors! I was stunned. The two hardest to find cosplay items in one place 0_o Anyway, here's the full body suit http://www.wildfree.com/store/merchant.mv?store_code=WF&screen=PROD&product_code=em8297
I couldn't find a full body pic of Camilla, so I don't know if you really need a full body suit. You can probably find something similiar to above without the legs.

OMG! Medillia that suit is exactly what I need! Woohoo! When ever I have a problem I think I am just going to immediatly come to you.
And as for your problem Lady, a hot glue gun would do just the trick. Teehee, just kidding ^_^. But I think a body suit would be the safest decision, because what if the tape comes off?! At least I wouldn't have the guts to use tape with the possibilty of it coming off hanging over my head, or more acurate, hanging over my chest.

thank you all for your ideas!!! here's a new one that i just thought of.
(so, i feel like an idiot for not thinking of this sooner, considering i work at victoria's secret and we sell them *sigh*)
there's these little sticky.. seperate boobed... cups that just stick on. we sell them by cup sizes. soooo, i think that that might just do the trick. i could sew or hot glue or whatever the fabric onto them, and then all will be well in the land of me.
or so i was thinking... o_O

Those tend to be pretty skimpy, and probably won't give you much shape, but it's worth trying ^_^
What did you want the bodysuit for, Mei Lan?
06-03-2002, 11:49 PM
^_^ i'm all about skimpy. ok, not really, but it's cool for Carmilla. i'm so excited about this costume! i haven't been this excited since my Lulu costume (one of the BILLION Lulu costumes... *hehe*) !! yay for being happy!

<What did you want the bodysuit for, Mei Lan?
I want it for my Felicia outfit. There is no way I'm putting my body into a Felicia outfit without a little nylon/whatever underskin. *blush blush* God knows when I'll actaully have time for it though...*shakes head in sadness*

Yea, I'm gonna start working on one too. But I gotta figure out how to attach the fur to the mesh @_@
Sorry, didn't mean to get off the subject, Lady Somairot ^^;; Another suggestion is Spirit gum, but you probably don't wanna use that to stick the fabric on directly, it might bleed through
06-04-2002, 06:22 PM
you could attach the fur by putting on the body suit and having someone (that you really trust...) sew previously cut out pieces onto you. the only problem is um... the nakedness and someone possibly stabbing you in the boobs or other parts of the body.
hope this helped!

That and mesh/nylon tends to run when you stabs holes in it >_<
