View Full Version : Spanner cosplay

Okay, I'm new so I may be doing this wrong but... ;; Well, I'll most likely be cosplaying Spanner from KHR to my next con and I need a bit of help.

First of all: the wig. I've tried googling it, and all I can find is this one: http://www.cosplayhouse.com/Katekyo-Hitman-Reborn-Spanner-Version-1-Cosplay-Wig.html
It's not horrible, but it's definitely much too long for me, because it would probably reach down to my shoulders, and Spanner's is to about half his neck. The bangs are a bit too long too, but I can cut them. The curl that's supposed to be on the side, however, bothers me too. If you look at the side view, the curl is stuck together with pins--I don't like pins. I don't get along with pins. Pins hate me. Got it? So I was thinking, would it be possibly to sort of curl that part with a curling iron? Just an idea.

So basically, I'm asking if there's any other Spanner wigs out there or not, or if I can curl the sides. Possibly cheaper ones? /cheapskate.

Next, the actual costume was hard to find. I did find this, though: http://www.cosplay.com/marketplace/showproduct.php/product/42438 and I really, really love it. I just PM'ed the seller, and hopefully she'll get back to me soon, for about $25. I kind of worry about this, though, because I'm about 5' 1" and the costume fits for her, who's 6 inches taller. Would I be able to tailor this down in any way?

http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=4083730#post4083730 The person from above hasn't replied to any of my PM's, so I'm looking at this one, now. It's much more expensive, but I like it, save for the bright blue sleeves. I'll be cutting those off and replacing them with a lighter blue colored cloth.
/end edit.

What other props do you think I'll need? I'm thinking, lots and lots of lollipops, strawberry flavored, lol, goggles, and work boots. About the work boots, does anyone know where I can find super cheap ones, like under $10?

;; Okay, that was pretty long. Hope that's okay? If you guys could possibly answer some of these questions, that'd be fantastic :heart:
