Nietsche
01-15-2003, 08:08 PM
superheroes as in Marvel and DC?

hmm..there was an X-men goup at katsu once...
and then I remember hearingof a Batman Beyond cosplay group...

Personally I want to make a Young Justice group some time...just need some other likeminded individuals...(I want to masquerade as Impulse)

I went as Shadowcat from X-Men/Excalibur to Dragoncon last year. I'd like to do another X-Men costume but I can't decide what... and it's been a longtime since I've read the comics, so I guess it's silly for me to do another ><;

Ice of the Justice League, Shrinking Violet of Legion of Super-Heroes and Raven of the Titans are all on my to-do list. Grandis that posts here has done Starfire of the Titans among others.

I did a Batman Beyond cosplay... bad guy tho... does that count as super hero? :)

Definitely have an x-men costume planned for comic con... maybe psylocke....

*Shiva*
01-15-2003, 10:18 PM
I've never done it, but I've always thought the Legion of Super Heroes was very cool. Lots of different costumes too. Lighting Lad was a big favorite of mine. :love:

I am going to DragonCon03 as Jenny Sparks from the Authority. ^_^ ZAP!

I'm going as arwyn from sojourn to comic con...not quite a super hero but close..
I was catwoman a number of years ago

miko-sama
01-16-2003, 12:27 AM
i'D LOVE TO DO A YOUNG JUSTICE TEAM TOO. robin kicks ass.

Spooky Brew
01-16-2003, 12:28 AM
I was a Catwomam too! She was fav. growing up!! I don't know...not for right now, but if I think of one, it's going on my to do list!!

miko-sama
01-16-2003, 12:58 AM
catwoman kicks ass.
well anything to do with bat man kicks ass

Dark Vision
01-16-2003, 01:33 AM
Does a power ranger count?
Otherwise I've done a super man once in my life.

arisuchan
01-16-2003, 09:47 AM
I've always wanted to make a Rahne Sinclair aka Wolfsbane from the New Mutants costume (I say this like anyone will know who she is *^^*) She was always my favorite Marvel character and my first online namesake. Besides she scottish, it doesn't get better than that!

Nietsche
01-16-2003, 10:22 AM
Sure I know, Arisu!
It's kinda hard to remember every mutant that has appeared in Marvel comics but Wolfbane has a distinctness to her that makes her memorable!

arisuchan
01-16-2003, 03:43 PM
that makes me so happy that someone actually knows who Rahne is!! Marvel has hardly given her the attention she deserves!

kelldar
01-16-2003, 03:45 PM
First comic I ever read was a New Mutants focused on her :D That's where it all started for me oO;

arisuchan
01-16-2003, 06:05 PM
New Mutants was my first Marvel comic that I fell in love with. I just loved all of the characters. I was such a marvel addict before I knew about anime. I've given up on it since they stopped Excaliber, that was the last title of theirs I read religiously.

kelldar
01-16-2003, 07:36 PM
same here ! I went from comics to anime. I stopped buying them after Onslaught, but I still read them occasionally at my cousins' house.
Anyway; that would be so freaking cool if you did Wolfsbane. I hope you do one day! :D

miko-sama
01-16-2003, 11:14 PM
wolfsbane is awesome , when they moved her to excalaber it sortta went downhill, but hell at least she has her own heroclix

hey we need a psylocke for our xmen group her and jubile are the only ones missing you can meet up with us for pics if you want :D

makio
01-18-2003, 01:05 AM
I know it's too soon to ask a group theme for Megacon, but maybe for San Diego Comic Con, it'd be cool to gather up with everyone and possibly go in somekind of superhero costume theme. Maybe Marvel's GenerationX, DC's Justice League or even possibly Gen13?

A J
01-18-2003, 01:10 AM
Hey jade_dragon,

That would be perfect! I'm thinking of doing Psylocke Crimson Tide version, not the traditional one. =)

kelldar
01-18-2003, 08:11 AM
If I were going to comic con, I'd totally make one of the original GenX uniforms.
Ah, we should get some kind of x-based group together for anybody going to dragoncon!

Basic Beecicchi
01-18-2003, 11:37 AM
Now here's something that might throw you off balance......

Are ya gals gonna take on the old comic book-style spandex versions, or the "let's change our suits so we don't look so gay anymore" movie versions?

* = Proposed outlook for choosing jumpsuits over spandex based on Hollywood's perceptions.......you can blame the rest of the media for accepting them.

Believe, you gals just sparked me to do a ton of spandex-clad versions of X-Men. Even Havok. :D

jade_dragon
01-18-2003, 01:03 PM
most of my xmen group is doing mix and match of diffrent xmen styles like the cover of xmen dimension video game were trying to get as far away from yellow spandex as possible lol .some of us are doing the movie with the extreme mix ,some of us are doing the causal uniform look etc etc

Cyclops-taken
Jean Grey/Phoenix -taken
Storm -taken
Mystique -taken
Beast -taken
Wolverine -taken
Magneto-taken i think
Polaris -taken
Dark Phoenix-taken (i think
Rogue -ME ^_^
Gambit -taken
Nightcrawler - taken



were disscusing the xmen group over at http://www.raiderquest.com/phpBB2/index.php if anyone wishes to join that would be great the more the merrier

Nietsche
01-18-2003, 01:22 PM
hmm...could do with seeing Pyro..or the Blob...or Juggernaut...or maybe even Sunfire or Silver Samurai...eheheh....
Hey..now how about Spiral for a challenging cosplay?

A J
01-18-2003, 01:50 PM
You know, I have actually thought about doing Spiral! I was wondering if I could raid some dept store and steal some extra arms from their mannqeuins! LOL.

Can you imagine what transporting her costume would be like... suitcase full of arms and katanas.... uh yeah Mr. Security Officer, it's ok really...

ROFL. :)

Nietsche
01-18-2003, 03:00 PM
Oooh..yeah AJ you should do Spiral! haha...stopped at security for possessing arms....

NeshaChan
01-18-2003, 04:27 PM
I dressed up as She-Ra when I was a kid...does that count? :)

makio
01-18-2003, 10:43 PM
Actually...Dragoncon would be a bit easier on me to attend since it's closer; so Kell - if you want to do a GenX theme, I'm game! It'd be my first time attending that convention, though I've been to Atlanta before.

kelldar
01-18-2003, 11:31 PM
Cool!! :D I know my friends'll be up for it, too. This'll be fun!

makio
01-19-2003, 04:05 PM
I'd have to probably shave my head for it, but I could go as Everett/Synch and I know I could easily convince a friend to go as Jono/Chamber. Now if we could snag a Monet, Paige, or Jubilee...
:D

kelldar
01-21-2003, 04:32 PM
I can be Paige, she was one of my favs ^^

Hikaruchan
01-21-2003, 05:35 PM
I like Jubilee, but don't think I could pull her off.

makio
01-21-2003, 08:45 PM
Bah, go for it. :)

Besides, I'm having enough of a time as is finding a pattern/buying a red bodysuit... Any suggestions? LoL... They aren't selling the DareDevil costume on ebay yet!

Radical Urd
01-22-2003, 05:47 PM
WAHHHHH YOUNG JUSTICE!!!!!!!!! I'm doing The Kid!!!! HES SO COOL!!!!! Plus Catwoman was my idol as a kid so i'm going to make one of her outfits.

LLC
01-27-2003, 09:46 PM
Yes, I am part of Lady Dragon's X-men group (working on it).

Projects completed from comic book characters includes
Aphrodite IX, Jade (the vapire-sorceress) and working on a LAdy Death battle outfit.

I helped a friend to complete the basic Purgatori look, working on the Egytian look, a Mystique comic book look (though we might attempt the movie look also), Chastity (the Rocked look).

makio
01-28-2003, 04:55 AM
Wow. Either Mystique would look cool though. Not sure if I've seen a fan make a costume of her before. Good luck on it! :)

And still no luck on the red bodysuit here...! LoL!

katchoo
01-28-2003, 11:23 AM
I'm going to do Harley Quinn for Comic con!! I can't wait to cosplay her, because I can be as bouncy as I want!!! And you have to love the way the suit hugs those curves...which I have. hehe

I'll be looking for my Mr. J.....

Nietsche
01-28-2003, 11:31 AM
So anyone actually want to do a Young Justice group?
I am not recruiting just yet since I dunno if i can attend any Comic conventions....and running around as Impulse seems like a good laugh!

KaosEfx
02-24-2003, 12:58 PM
I'm thinking about going to the Durham con (I can't remember the name) as Gambit. Everyone's favorite ragin cajun!

-Jei-

I'll need help with it though.

tamahomegurl
02-25-2003, 05:03 AM
hey kaosefx.....*heart swoons* i love gambit!! ^__^ he's one kick ass cajun if you ask me, darlin!!! *winks*


hey jade_dragon:::

i was planning on maybe cosplaying as lady deathstrike from x-2... i'm thinking about doing that for comic con in cali this year...and i'll dress my younger sis up as jubilation lee....*giggles* hahaha!! she would sure make one hell of a jubilee!! if we can go, we would love to join up in your group!!!! ^___^ if you allow it, that is!!!! ^__^

Hikaruchan
02-25-2003, 08:37 AM
My sister is a Gambit and Rogue fan, so I am sure she would love to see a Gambit at Animazement

KuroBara
02-25-2003, 08:44 AM
I'm over on the East Coast, but I'm planning a Psylocke costume for next year, and my boyfriend will most likely be Gambit.

jade_dragon
02-25-2003, 11:48 AM

Sarcasm-hime
02-26-2003, 02:33 PM
EEE, somebody awhile back mentioned Authority cosplay! I love the Authority...although I don't think I'd want to cover myself in silver paint.

For SDCC'04 I'm planning on making a Scarlet Witch costume and dressing the hubby up as Nightcrawler (my number 1 favourite comic guy...I guess I just find blue sexy). ^_^

daria_jack
03-21-2003, 04:22 PM
I do Poison Ivy from Batman right now. she's not exactly a super hero but she's in a super hero book/movie

peaseblossom
03-22-2003, 03:59 PM
Sarcasm Hime- Yosh! The Authority Rocks! I dunno if I'd cover myself in silver paint either. I'm glad I am doing Jenny instead of The Doctor! I just have to wear a Union Jack shirt and act surley for Jenny! ^__~

03-23-2003, 11:14 PM
Kee kee. Batman Beyond will come back if Hikkles ever finishes Dee Dee.

I really love Rogue, I'd like to do her costume someday

yayahan
03-24-2003, 11:23 AM
Aimee, why don't you do a duo with Mitch then? He could pull of Wolverine just fabulously ^_^

A J
03-24-2003, 11:29 AM
Wayne, you need to let me know when you're pulling out the Batman Beyond cosplay again.

:: LOVES it when people recognize Ten :: ^^

yayahan
03-24-2003, 11:47 AM
Dude you guys, I wanna join! Batman Beyond RAWKS!

A J
03-24-2003, 12:10 PM
Oooh, come join us Yaya!!! Who would you be?

Anyone who does Batman Beyond going to Comic-con? I might have a Jack too to go along with my Ten. ^^ And maybe I can convince my brother he looks good in white spandex so he can be Ace...

Not likely, but I can try. LOL. :)

-AJ

waynekaa
03-24-2003, 12:17 PM
I think Yaya should be Inque. That's what we last discussed when she was Batman Beyond gushy. :D Which would mean I'd actually have to wear Batman, but Hikkles wants Terry McGinnis to go with her Dee Dee, since Dee Dee attacks him in that nightclub.
I don't think I can make it to ComicCon this year, sadly tho.

yayahan
03-24-2003, 12:34 PM
I would love to do Inque for sure! Let's talk about it further over AIM... *smitten grin*

waynekaa
03-24-2003, 01:04 PM
MMMMM
*looks forward to that*
BTW, Yaya could make a really cute Ruby Moon *looking at her Bubblegum Angel outfit*

Hee hee, AJ is still 2 cards short even with an Ace of a Royal Flush

A J
03-24-2003, 01:07 PM
Yaya would make an awesome Inque!

I'm working on it Wayne! :) Batman Beyond fans are kinda hard to find I've noticed...

yayahan
03-24-2003, 01:29 PM
Thank you, AJ! I would really love the chance to cosplay with you one day *_*

Adella
03-24-2003, 03:16 PM
Kell cosplayed as She-Ra.. I wanted to also. Mebbe I could cosplay as Glimmer or Queen Angela or someone from that series ~_^

kelldar
03-24-2003, 03:26 PM
Queen Angelina would rock *_* I kinda thought of doing Flutterina but thought it might be confused with Heavy Metal Papillion ^^;

aimee> you would make an awesome rogue!

KittenTheChibi
03-24-2003, 03:52 PM
I always thought it would be cool to do Freezia from the cartoon Shera.....

Ok she's a villiness but hey they are cool too right?

yayahan
03-24-2003, 04:04 PM
Yay for old school heros!

Ginny
03-24-2003, 05:50 PM
Woah woah whoah. Who mentioned Batman Beyond and DIDN'T inform me? *kicks everyone's butt*

Me and a CERTAIN SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN THIS HOUSE was supposed to be DeeDee with me, but never finished her costume. ;____;

waynekaa
03-24-2003, 09:10 PM
G-chan wants to make a DeeDee?
I didn't know G-chan likes the Batman Beyond? HAWT.

Nietsche
03-24-2003, 09:48 PM
People not liking Batman Beyond?
You must have asked the wrong people! I'm all for the series....just don't know who I'd want to cosplay from it though!

A J
03-24-2003, 09:58 PM
Actually it's more like people dunno what it is. ^^

G-Chan likes Batman Beyond too! Yay! We should definitely plan a group for some con... :)

yayahan
03-25-2003, 08:50 AM
OMG G-chan, you'd be so kickass as Dee Dee! I entirely second AJ.. ^_^

Ginny
03-25-2003, 12:44 PM
I already have the wig, hat, shorts, top, and boots. I just need her belt, and it would be done. I even have the make-up laying around. I was supposed to be DeeDee with Cristi, but she never got it finished and just forgot about it. ;___;

I'd also love to cosplay Ten/Melissa sometime too. ^_^ Up with Ten! Down with Dana!

waynekaa
03-25-2003, 01:35 PM
Then you should ~remind~ Cristi!
Alot.
Awwww, I think Dana's kyu.

Ginny
03-25-2003, 02:22 PM
I wanna rip Dana's head off and feed it to Ace. ^__~

soshi
03-25-2003, 05:10 PM
*jumps in the thread far too late*

yes, Mel/Ten is waaaaaaaay better than Dana. ^___^

I love Batman Beyond. *_*; I once had an aspiration to cosplay Mel's civilian clothes, but other plans took over. someday, somday.

There are lots of superhero cosplays at San Diego Comic Con. In fact, Comic Con has been around for a lot longer than anime conventions.

LLC
04-30-2003, 10:43 AM
Not sure if this counts as superhero but certainly is Comic Book. My friend Kelly as the Magdalena. Took me near forever to get the gold onto the belts (the entire costume is made out of leather).

I think you'd make an awesome Glimmer Aeris. :) I loved She-Ra when I was little. I even wrote fanfics about She-Ra *lol*, even though I didn't know the term was "fan fiction" back then. I might do a She-Ra cosplay in the future. I've also wanted to cosplay Jem, Rainbow Brite, and other 80's cartoon characters. I'd also like to cosplay Rogue, but only if I have a Gambit with me ;).

...is anyone planning on doing this for DragonCon?

Mandy Mitchell
05-06-2003, 03:32 AM
I sooo want to cosplay Jubilee but I doubt I could make it to Comic Con this year. I hope the X-MEN group will still continue the year after.

Nevernaut
06-02-2003, 01:28 PM
I'm working on a comics version of Wolverine for Dragon*Con (I figure there'll be enough movie versions). I'm still a few sit-ups away from walking around shirtless (though jacketed), but I'm getting there.

And I thought making claws was going to be the hard part....

Friends of mine have made plans to dress up as Emma Frost, Jean Grey and Xorn, and a good freind has said she'll fight me in the costume contest if I make her a Deathstrike suit form the movie.

JacksUsername
06-03-2003, 01:45 AM
I've went as Wolverine in his casual wear to Anime Boston (its in my gallery) and I'm hoping to do a few more, I'd really like to do a Gambit.

I'm not too sure if I'll get around to making any for conventions any time soon, but I'm probably going to dress up as a couple and take some photos just for fun. :)

HealerKou
07-20-2003, 10:37 AM
Oops, I <3 super heroes. Wish I'd seen this thread sooner!

I've always wanted to cosplay as Catwoman, the purple version from when Jim Balent was drawing her. I loved those comics, but now her design sucks >_<; Except for when Jim Lee draws it.

I've also wanted to do Huntress for a while, and make my boyfriend be Nightwing, cuz I <3 him, and they DID IT XD

For DragonCon this year, I plan on being Elektra, either her red costume, or the white one with the opening in the front. I haven't decided yet, but I think the red might look better with my complexion.

I also want to make a Chastity costume someday. Probably very few people have read those comics, but she's a vampire that other vampires can't sense for some reason, and she's so PISSED that she's a vampire, that she hunts and kills them, and is also generally a hired assassin for monsters. What makes it really cool, though, is that she was going to become an actress before she got bitten, so she knows how to do wigs, costumes, makeup, and everything. So since the others can't sense her, she often goes undercover all dressed up, and learns new things about this conspiracy thing that's going on against the head vampire guy. Anyway, she's a hero in my book ^_^v

And, yeah, I was supposed to be one half of DeeDee from Batman Beyond, but then I moved, lost some pieces, got confused, got a job, got busy, and forgot about it ;___; Oops! My bad! But I do have the top, shorts, boots, and wig....somewhere. ^_^;;

Which versions of the costumes are you doing? The original Gen-X Unis? The Adrienne Frost Versions (Gen-X #51 were there first appearence), or the Counter-X Versions?

Remember.. Jubilee NEEDS her yellow coat!

Why not do Vindicator (AKA Heather McNeil Hudson) From Canada's own Alpha Flight!

Anyways let me know how the Gen-X stuff goes, I would like to see your costumes!

I, one day would like to crossplay as Jubilee (because I love her sooooo much)... that along with Static (But not the terrible Static Shock Costume... the original).

Hahaha Thanks! Actually I use to have a Heroes & Villians Theme masquerade every year. That's why I have so many costumes. ONe of the best years was when a whole bunch of people came as characters from The Tick!

RedPikachu
07-24-2003, 11:46 PM
I hope that one day, when I don't have a million costumes to make, that I can go to some con as Jubilee in that horrid 80s outfit witht he yellow jacket and crazy hair.

grandis
07-29-2003, 12:29 PM
Lessee...I've been Mystique, the Wasp, Wonder Woman, Rogue, Punk Storm, Cat Woman, Diamond Back, Starfire, Zatanna, Phoenix, Tigra, Dove, Hawk Woman, Death (comics, but not superhero...), Ghost, the Scarlet Witch, the Emerald Enchantress, the Black Widow, Shrinking Violet, and Phantom Girl. I may have missed a couple, but those are the ones I can remember right now.

I had my start doing superheros, back in the days before anime exploded.

I'd love to do a Wonder Woman from the 40s, with the little skirt. :)

Cat Woman was my fav growing up! When I was younger, I was Cat girl one halloween. lol! ^__^

I would love to cosplay Jean Grey (and her varies outfits-she's my fav X-gal), Jubilee, Storm, Rogue, and Shadow Cat. They are some awesome X-gals! ^__~

I love watching She-Ra growing up. I wanna be a superhero!! :D

I'll be back when I think of some more...lol! =)

11-03-2003, 07:00 AM
well i know no-one has probably even seen this thread in like 3-4 months but i'm gonna post anyways. I just made an Evo Nightcrawler costume (wish i could do comic version but putting on the tail minus the yellow belt was just too complicated, besides i LOVE "the fuzzy dude") But i spent a lot of money on it and would love to get some more uses out of it, if there is anybody going to any "dress up" convention where x-men would be appropriate in the Bay Area California let me know. I also have a yahoo group for x-men cosplaying, I don't think i can post the link without causing problems so I'll just say e-mail me if ur interested.

I did black symbiote Spider-Man from the spin-off Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider Clan for Comic-Con. Check out my gallery.

Currently I'm thinking of Gambit or Dr. Strange?

People are telling me to go as Gambit.

Since I used to live in Louisville can answer this. No anime con in town, closest one to you would be SugoiCon http://www.sugoicon.org in Covington which you just missed (was in November). Next closest would be MTAC http://www.mtac.net/ in Nashville in April (since C-kon moved to South Bend instead of being in Indy)

On other cons, have the following

Conglomeration is in town (their guest of honor is from Louisville, wrote some DragonLance novels - and was one of my professors at U of L)
http://members.iglou.com/shadowr/

and GenCon in Indy (gaming con but there are costumers there)

I think some of the members of the anime club that meets at Southwest branch of the library on Dixie Highway are cosplayers from messages I have seen (club is for teens). Know of about 10 cosplayers in Louisville, but most of them aren't in any clubs that I know of.

Can try

There also were anime clubs at Male & Eastern high and U of L

And if you are a paid member of cosplaylab.com, can use pinpoint feature to see who is around Louisville

Some thin, black materal for breathing, and leather straps and buckles for effect.
Add the leather jacket and black clothes and you'll look like the GenX Chamber.

As some of you may know, I'm leading a big cosplay gathering for Megacon; entitled "Marvel vs Capcom 2 @ Megacon 2004 (http://makio.homelinux.com:8080/mvc2)"... and the costume I have planned to wear is Iron Man. I'm not having too much trouble with the costume (found the helmet online surprisingly enough!). However I noticed that on his suit (http://makio.homelinux.com:8080/mvc2/images/mvc2art/50/main.jpg) , there's various "lines"(most likely where the suit is snapped together)on his legs and other parts of his armour.

Now to replicate this, I'm actually using a spandex like apparel bought from UnderArmour(Coincidence or Irony? Bad pun, sorry. :thumbsup: )...and I'm not sure whether those lines should be drawn on with fabric pen or sewed on via black string embroidery? Is it possible to sew on spandex-like material without tearing it when worn? Help, help!

ZiggyB
01-16-2004, 05:37 PM
Are you talking about the lines on the armor? Or the lines on the yellow undersuit?

Anyway, generally lines using marker drawn on spandex looks kinda bad IMHO. Because when it stretches it will get lighter and darker in places and will look, drawn on. :) I talked to a Asuka cosplayer at AX who hand sewed black elastic on to her bodysuit. That way when the suit stretched the black lines would stretch and pull with her. Of course that's really time consuming and not fun. :/

Um... you probably don't wanna use embroidery since again, embroidery doesn't stretch as far as I know.

I'd say, if you have some scrap material, try the marker on the fabric and then stretch and pull it to see if the line stays consistant or not. If that doesn't work, maybe using different types of paint? Maybe if you have friends who have an airbrush (haha, I want friends like that) and if that fails try the elastic.

Oh, and to answer your original question, yes you can sew on spandex so that it will stretch and the body suit will stay intact. There's generally two methods. If you want to use a straight stitch, you want to stretch the spandex as you are sewing it. The other way is to use a zig-zag stitch so when the fabric stretches, the stitches don't break.

I've also been told using a serger is great for stretch materals, but I have no experence with that. :(

A J
01-16-2004, 05:46 PM
Everything Ziggy said... =)

And if you really want to go with paint, you can but you're going to need someone else to paint it while you're wearing the suit cause the suit needs to be stretched out already. You need someone who you trust to paint you while you're lying there unable to move until it dries. =) (A blowdryer helps speed up the process of drying.)

Nate Grey is definately cool- the *best* AU kidlet of Scott and Jean's!
And yeah Shiro's origanal outfit made him look a bit like the monster out of a bad 50's B-Movie probabaly entitled 'It came from Beneath the Sea!!!' *g*

So what would people suggest for superhero fabric? Satin Lycra or stretchy vinyl?

Depends on who you're doing, I guess. Like for my Wonder Woman costume, I'll probably try to get vinyl, but for Starfire, I'll probably try spandex/lycra...

EXACTLY superhero masqarade is almost same concept like Cosplay.
You want to look as realistic as you can in most cases.
for example Elektra is a ninja assasin,plus in most comics her
outfit is drawn to be free flowing somewhat.So I picked out spandex.

Another example if your a fan of the D.C. comic Birds of Prey, the current incarnation of Black Canary is wearing a vinyl or kevlar looking body suit, as welll as huntress.I would use those kinds of materials.

Huntress

best way to try and judge the material of a costume is how the light element is drawn shining off of it.And also just knowing your character.Think of the situations they are in on a daily basis.What kind of material would you use really if your were this hero ^.^

I'm so psyched that I found a store selling metallic lycra so that I can make Shen's costume ^ ^ I can't wait to go parading around the DC booth XD

Regarding the costumes of characters such as the Bird of Prey girls, new school Batman, and guys like The Midnighter, I think buttery leather suits well however this is extremely expensive so upholstery pleather could also work and at the same time be comfortable and inexpensive @D@

Of course most costumes in comic books somehow just *mold* to the character's body like a second skin whether it be spandex, leather, vinyl, you name it. I think in a sense this works to a cosplayer's advantage because everyone knows it's not always physically possible so people are free to try their own variations of the material used ^ ^

I want to do Storm sometime... though I am not entirely sure what version. XD I saw her outfit for X2 at the FIDM costume exhibit yesterday and it is really sexy, but I have my doubts about the movie versions of the costumes just because they are SO different. Her oldschool white one is the most recognizable and I love the cape... that skimpy metallic one though? Hell no. ;D

I think it'd be fun to do a semi-original design... something like her movie outfit but in white and silver...

I have never seen anyone do Storm... has anyone else?

Fantastic XD I loves Storm. Your cape is amazing! I do think if I ever get around to doing my own Storm I will go with a blasphemous hybrid of her original white and X2 movie costumes, cause dammit, I want to wear both AT THE SAME TIME.

And don't eeeeven get me started on that bit, hahaha. I am black and I don't even TRY to find characters that I might resemble (though Lucia from Devil May Cry 2 is tempting only because I look like her, but I'm only going to make one if my friend ever wants to do Dante, 'cause then I can match >_>).

It is never about looking like the character for me, I just covet the clothes. :P

Dude though, that part always annoyed me... Sarah (main char of witchblade) DID wear clothes, it was really on the covers of the comic the artists would draw her mostly nekkid, since sex sells.

I always appreciated how Michael Turner did her... she'd have a shiny black bodysuit on whenever she was in Witchblade "battle mode". I alawys appreciated Michael Turner's artwork for potraying women a little more tastefully in comics :p

And omg, The Darkness would be THE COOLEST THING EVER.

Kerry of maskon.com did it beautifully with a full latex face mask, but sadly I'm not so skilled >_< oh well.

I don't know if you can replace spandex/lycra/stretch fabric with anything, particularly for Phoenix, although there's been one Mystique dress in satin, I think it's nicer to do superheroes in spandex -- they're famous for it, after all!

I'm working on a Hawkgirl costume now actually. Just going to buy my wings. Found these beautiful ones that are just PERFECT...but they're also like 350 bucks, which is really hefty. Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but I can only see me getting to wear the costume once, so that's a lot of money for one time. I'm making my mace, got a red wig since my hair is brown for another more important costume to me. The boots and the helmet/mask or the biggest conundrum right now. The boots I know I can do, but the helmet really has me stuck.

I've always wanted to do Retro Girl from Powers, and I've been toying with the idea of doing a Hawkgirl costume lately. I'd really like to do Luna Moth, but no one would recognize it. (From Michael Chabon's "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" and his new graphic novel "The Escapist," which is based on his real novel.)

I was also thinking of Starfire from the Teen Titans cartoon. My boyfriend wanted me to cosplay Terra, but nothing on this green Earth gets me into yellow biker shorts. ^_^

Oracle,
A hawkgirl helmet sounds pretty tough. She's gone thru a few different designs. Do you want to have feathers on it, like the comic book, or make it look smoother like the cartoon? If you want to make it by sewing, you'll probably need a wire frame. Making a rigid helmet would be more precise, but more work. I'd recommend papier mache if you don't have access to any specialized equipment. It's slow, but it's really inexpensive.

Haruko Tovar
06-29-2004, 01:22 AM
I did a project for a special fx make-up class where I did a version of the split fingers. The same principle may work with some obvious modifications. I may try to dig up some pics. Basically I started with a pair of latex gloves, tissue paper, liquid latex, a cheap paint brush, and talc. Doing one hand at a time, I put tissue paper in the crease between my index and middle finger (as well as the ring and pinky finger), coated this with latex and continued building up until I reached the desired shape and texture. Next, i put a small amount of latex in a dixie cup and added a very small amount of latex paint until I reached my desired color. Upon completion and drying, I applied a very small amount of talc to reduce tackiness. As long as you put talc inside the glove and take them off carefully, they last a decent amount of time. The feet should be able to be done using a pair of athletic socks . You may want to put a plastic bag (from the fruit and veggie aisle) over your foot first to avoid the headache from the seepage. A lot of time but produces a nice effect. Good luck, I am looking forward to working on my first true hero cosplay and hope to attend my first con next summer.

*i'm not going to bother with the contacts, it'll be fine without them i think...plus they're expensive, and this has cost enough already!
*the clasp i hand sawed from a piece of brass, i filed it down with metal file the sanded it relentlessly till it was nice and shiny! then i just epoxied a pinback onto the back of it. it's my favorite part because i made it like a real piece of jewelry and will probably wear it as such often!

Oooh Mystiques definately a cool one...I managed to pick up a wig for her really, really cheaply after Halloween exactly the right orangey-red colour. So good luck on your wig quest hopefully you have similar luck!

Does Kim Possible count? She's kind of a super hero, in the sense that she fight's bad guys and saves the world....XD

Dude the Professor X rocks XD That's a sweet group (even though I must admit I hate Phoenix as a character @D@) but double points for Xavier.

With Comic Con over I have another year to work on new costumes, been thinking between The Doctor (The Authority), Gambit (no people don't hate him right X3?), or a character from one of Brom's paintings. I still want to do a 1602 group ^ ^;

I'd love to see a Gambit! He rocks immensely....our Nightcrawler from that group can usually be found cosplaying him but decided to do someone different for this group.

Hehehe...Xavier did rock immensely imho (I loved the eyebrows! Thought they were a great touch ;) ) and I'm with you in that Phoenix is definately not one of my favourite characters but my mate didn't want to wear a wig and has amazing long red hair which kinda limited her choice of characters.

1602 was also very cool! It'd be interesting to see a group from that

Rel, was your group's Nightcrawler an X-Men Evo Gambit at Comic Con?

Hitori, I'd like to do a 1602 group for Comic Con 2005 in San Diego ^ ^ I've been thinking about doing Matthew or Pietro, the former because the blind bard bit just killed me and the latter because god he's a page, that's sexy XD Right now it sounds like only you and me are interested LOL, and maybe Rel X3

Nope that wasn't our Nightcrawler (who is under the firm belief Evo is the devil!)

Ooooh 1602 group ey? I will actually be attending Comiccon next year....oh don't tempt me ;)

LOL they certainly turned X-Men Evo Gambit into the devil. I wasn't really happy with the way the series portrayed him but the Evo Gambit cosplayer did a nice job with her costume ^ ^

Where 1602 is concerned, the more the merrier! I don't think 1602 costumes can be all that recognizable unless there's a group of them, or you know... it's Doom X3

You're so on. I really want to do Pietro, but I can be... persuaded to be someone else. We should chat via IM or something, I believe you live in my area.

Hitori, you can be Pietro if you want to do a 1602 group, my hope was just to have him in the group. Judging from your Nataku costumes I think you'd make a great Pietro XD I might do Archangel in his tan knickers if we end up having a 1602 X-Men group X3 I live in Los Angeles by the way, IM me at ACXchan anytime!

I'm so jealous, I live all the way in Australia :( I want to do a 1602 Wanda at some point though. I'd love to see the group if you manage to pull it off! 1602!Pietro is sooo beautiful; OMG.

Lehni you should do Wanda anyway, I'd love to see it. I totally agree with you 1602 Pietro is gorgeous X3 So was Archangel, I think I'll be doing him instead just for the pretty boy factor.
