Nope the "official" ones where metal cast and started at $200US converted (they go for $500+ on ebay).

I'm still getting my Mami one as the shipping is included for $16 is cheaper then making one.

I love this series and would love to cosplay from it, but I'm having a hard time picking out a character. I kinda like all of them, but I narrowed it down to either Sayaka or Homura... (dumb question, but fun to ask) How did everyone else pick out which character to cosplay? :3

I picked Kyoko Sakura because she has a super awesome "me" attitude. And she's super curte and her color is a darker shade of red (which is my fav color).

On the soul gems I'm actually considering making some to sell online... not sure if anyone would be interested in it (or if I should have jumped on the bandwagon a year and a half ago '.__.)

I picked Mami because physically she have more curves then the rest of the girls (which is unusually in anime). I also like her design as well as out of all of them, it's the laest Asian style and almost steampunkish.

Well, if you skip over the Ebay price-jackers, you could get those gacha Soul Gem toys... You'd have to get a different set, though. It might be hard to find the tainted Soul Gems or the Kyubey head, but if you just want the normal light-up Soul Gem, those are still being made as part of "Soul Gem Light 2" (the normal 5 can also be bought as a bundle for 2000 yen from a certain retailer, in a quick Google search).

Soul Gem Light 2....
If you have 29 other friends who like MadoMagi that could be the way to go. A store that specializes in those Gacha capsule toys is discounting them. 30 of those capsules is 12000 yen full-price, but sold as a pack of 30 for 31% off... 8280 yen . 8280 yen is about $112 USD. Add $10 service fee and assume $40 shipping = $162. Divide that by 30 and that's about $5.40 each. I've left out the domestic shipping and even the int'l shipping will vary depending on how large/heavy, but... it's safe to say you could obtain them for no more than $8 apiece, everything included.

Mind you, those Soul Gem Light 2 capsules actually aren't released until April, so....

Bandai is actually the founder of capsule machines and they are licensed. The problem I have with them is size. The Soul Gem Light series is passable (6 cm tall), but I want the clear resin type, and those only come in the cell phone strap variety.... and are small enough to MadoMagi figurines to wear accurately.

I went with Mami! Part of it was because she's the character whose figure is closest to mine, and the other was because she's a whole lot like me personality wise.

On a related note, the corset I'm going to use for my Mami cosplay came in yesterday and I'm kind of in love with it!

I look way more like Mami than a lot of girls who do her great justice, but I just fell in love with Homura too much to do anyone else! ><
Sucks I'm wearing two sports bras and still stressing the top out.

Started up working on a new Madoka cosplay for myself, did Godoka so now time to go back and do Magical Girl Madoka! LOL Hoping it goes well, I've gotten a few things purchased but all I've managed to finish is my petticoat, the bloomers are almost done thankfully, just have to put the waistband into it.
Petti:

Hopefully I can get Madoka done fast... Though I realized that the bias tape I bought it more towards the pink version over the red... Not sure if I'll stick with the pink or go to red to match things more accuretly.

Okay, I need help Madoka thread! It looks like I will be making magical girl Madoka and I'm pretty lost on how to make her. Her top kind of looks like a tank top with the poofy sleeves attached. Her petal skirt is really scaring me... I'm thinking of making a circle skirt and then trying to figure out how to divide the petals evenly? The petticoat I'm okay with I think, I just need a bunch of circle skirts. any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Mithrenniel: I found this tutorial online. Is it what you're looking for?

And hello everyone! I'm getting ready to start a Magical Girl Mami costume, and I'm super excited, but I'm a little confused on the skirt at the moment. I'm not sure whether to make it a regular circle skirt, or a 1 1/2 or two circle skirt. I want it to have the same volume as it does on the show (I plan on putting horse hair braid in the hem to help achieve that), but I don't know if a regular circle skirt will be enough. Any ideas?

I just finished watching Madoka Magica and was instantly bitten by the cosplay bug-- Though, I have a quick question: I want to cosplay Kyoko's casual outfit, the one with the jacket and jean shorts. http://www.tomopop.com/ul/27153-Kyouko%20header.jpg

What color does everyone considered her jacket? I've been trying to find a pre-made one that I can alter, but am having trouble with the color.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
