Omg. Sorry for the very late reply -.-.
Quite an active thread here. But somehow this makes me happy since I never thought there were that many fans out there. (Although I knew the game's more popular in the US.)
Many many thanks for the link
. Ended up looking for quite a while now and 'adopting' quite some of your treasures and not only ones I might use for the cosplay in question. xD
Have to take a thorough look and sort out what I actually want now. Somehow I have the feeling the cosplay really might become a chimera of quite some of the pics now... and others are good inspiration for possible pics.
But I'm already thinking about choosing a silver wig now instead. It's more characteristic and closer to the old game design and I know the colour suits me. Quite a choice though.
Cool. If we really should go for the same char in the end we could discuss a little more while working maybe. (Although as already said the con's at the end of July in my case and I don't know when I'll start working on it.)
If not I'd really like to see your Setzer though
Happy to hear anyway that I'm not the only one who thinks that way about the lipstick. About the zebra fabric I'm not yet sure. It's Ok to my mind if used moderately.
And yes, thinking about the design is indeed fun but also takes a little more time for me.^^
You are right as well. It depends a lot on the cosplayer and very much on the cosplay as a whole. I think in the picture you linked it doesn't look bad due to the colours used and the decorations. But I guess I'm usually just the type who prefers it to be more natural if I've got a choice. But experimenting's fine though. Afterall it's added quickly and removed as well. Maybe I should ask our Celes too what she's going to do about her design all in all. Only know about the ones who already started working (Shadow, Setzer, Edgar and Terra). But I was going to discuss this with the whole group anyway.
Many start it now or already have got one. But I know as much who don't including myself. Not a great fan of facebook unfortunately.
That sounds really cold o.O. Keep my fingers crossed as well regarding the shipping.
