View Full Version : Mine Ambition Overfloweth to SC2 Nightmare

09-13-2005, 06:47 PM
Hello, my first real post here... I just thought I'd put something out here and get myself noticed before I really need any help (lol). The costume that I am developing is SCII Nightmare's P2 costume... the one that is Half-Siegfried, Half-Twisted Creature of Darkness. I'm going to be putting the P1 giant hand on there, though, so... keep that in mind. I don't have any pictures of it handy, but I will soon. For those of you who know what I'm talking about, though...

Might I have tips on what materials I may need (everything but the hand... I've got that sorted out), what I should prioritize in my schedule, HOW I'M GOING TO KEEP THAT BLOODY WIG OUT OF MY FACE... You know, general help stuff. If, rather than answering here, you would direct me to another forum in which these questions have already been answered, that would be great too. It's just that I've been here all of 3 minutes and I still haven't found very much. :hafha:

If you want to do Nightmare, i suggest you read as many posts as you can on building armor. Lots of different ways to do it, foam, paper mache, cardboard, etc.

If you want to see a cool nightmare costume try Yui's Nightmare costume (http://forums.cosplay.com/costume.php?action=detail&cosid=24542). It totally rocks :)

Darn... I typed a whole long post here and my computer got rid of it. :sulk:


I remember seeing those pics on the SC forums before... I cried with joy (and jealousy) at the sight! That soul edge really was marvelous...

I found a good armor-making tutorial here (http://amethyst-angel.com/armormaking.html) that's just up my alley! It looks reletively easy, and the results are good! Since I haven't actually tried to do it yet, though, it may be too soon to pass judgement... :p

And I fortunately have not commited myself to creating so much armor... the costume I want to do is only leg armor and gauntlet. This is the picture: Check the bottom left! (http://www.planetnintendo.com/perfectdark/sc2/scii_nightmare2.jpg)

But I am going to be making this arm: because it's so much cooler (http://exigo-heroes.tripod.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/sc2-nightmare.jpg)

So, I'm going to try to make the arm mechanical, so that I can get a full reach with it... has anyone else been crazy enough to try this before? Has anyone else succeeded? I would really appreciate some info if there is any.

Also, I'm going to need to do some wigwork (I have short brown hair, Siegfried has flowing long blonde hair with bangs). I have bought a cheapo wig already, but it has no bangs. How should I best style it? If anyone can point me in the right place, that would be great. Thanks in advance!
