Ok those of you that have seen Shamanic princess.....
Have any ideas about doing Tira's hair when she transforms ?(yes i'm crazy,because this is who i have decided to do as my first cosplay~if i have problems i'masking you guys,hehe)

kitty did a really neat version of that, pretty much the whole thing was feathers, I think you can find pics of her at AX 2002 and Comic con 2002, sorry I don't have a direct url, maybe someone else will.

I'm sure there's other ways to do it too

the transormy Tira?! Wow! I thought I was one of the few who saw Shamanic Princess- either way- That hair looks real tough- But when it come to hair there is always loooong wigs and hair spray and fabic dye(double check that) to change colors of wig- At least that it was i was told to do by someone I knew what they were talking about- I hope it helps a bit-

I was planning on doing a Tiara cosplay for awhile, and what I had planned was to get a bright red wig, style it up in two pigtails, then attach some kind of wire headdress to the wig. Onto the wire I would make the 'wings' out of feathers and long strips of red chiffon to make it all floaty. ^_^

For the boots, you could make them like garter pantyhose and have hidden clips or velcro or something. You'll obviously need to make your own boot covers. You could also try making the legs out of pantyhose or skin-coloured spandex, and just sew the green fabric in the right places.
