Basically, it all came down to needing a simple and comfortable costume for Friday night at Wonder Con ;)
[x]Wig: a black magnum from Arda. Razored and trimmed, then styled with aqua-net and got2b glue hair glue.
[x]Shirt: I already own the perfect shirt from Penny's.
[x]Skinny jeans: already own.
[x]Shoes: I practically live in chucks, yet had every color but red. Go figure. Glad I have tiny feet--bought a new pair in the kid's section for $30 :3
[x]Ears: ordered a small elf ear kit from Aradani studios.
[x]Makeup: I already own everything left-over from my Nepeta costume, including the vampire fangs. (Lucky that troll makeup is purdy darn close!~)
[x]Axe Bass Guitar: This was a joint effort between my Dad and I. He carved it from basswood, and I sanded, painted, molded and painted the skull, and added all of the little details :) Trivia? The "strings" are actually silver coated jewelry elastic!
**Quick tip for anyone making pretty much any large prop--Before you ask about size/length, etc., take a look at the character. What are the proportions compared to him/her? Marshall's axe bass is about a foot shorter than him, so I made my dimensions to be about a foot shorter than me, and scaled everything from there :) Hope that helps!!~ :D
