Refffffffffff~
I'd say blue skirt with yellow bias tape around the bottom, same as the jacket/cape.

Question Celica A. Mercury

Hey guys!
I'm in some need of help!
My boyfriend and I have begun working on my Celica cosplay, but we've encountered a major issue; the wig.
I've been looking at two wigs from Arda, at least, and found two styles that would work, I think anyways, but we're uncertain which would better suit Celica. Aside from that, the color is a bit tricky. They have stated her hair is brown, but I'm debating between Spanish Brown or Maroon, but I think Maroon is a bit too red and not enough brown.
Here are the two wigs we've been debating between:
Jeannie or Jasmine

If anyone else has any other cosplay wig recommendations, feel free to let me know and in response to this, you can also message me on that as well.

Finally, here are some reference pictures of Celica.

Gosh, been a while since I've been on here.

@Assiduity: I would go with the actual in game art work, the concept art some times varies in colors. Since it is again concept art. I would probably go with the Jeanne since it looks like it might require less styling then again it's always better to have it to long then to short. Gives you more room for styling.

Despite years of making this I still haven't seem to have given up. Still continuing my Nu/Lambda cosplay. Only thing really changing is that we're changing it to a Boba Fett color scheme so I can match my Mando friends. This will come at a later date though, since I'm trying to get it to a con first before repainting.

Here are some pictures:

Ragna's Astral Heat scythe finally made it's debut at a con without any issues! The weight problem is still there but manageable. I need a shoot to do it better justice :<

Haiii~
So, I'm planning on (eventually, but hopefully soon!!) making a Taokaka cosplay~
I think Taokaka is absolutely adorable. ;u;
And, looking at many cosplays of her right now, I am already thinking about making the braids out of yarn, and maybe making an actual wig out of yarn?
And I'm thinking of making more than one color... Like, an original colored one, and maybe a pink and white one... Which means I should make the yarn wig removable from the hood, so it could be used for more than one...
But I have a question... How did you (anyone who has made a Taokaka cosplay) make her zipper pull thing?

Ah, I'm so excited, I totally want this to happen. ;u;

Thinking of doing a Taokaka cosplay sometime in the near future..
I wanna do a version with claws..Cuz I haven't really seen that in my local cons..Like making them retractable..Outta maybe plastic..Not sure how yet but yea..

Also, for you Taokaka cosplayers, how do you eat? Like I've never had a cosplay that involves both a hood AND a mask..I was thinking of having the mask be pretty stiff but not connected to my head at all, like connected to the actual hood, but no idea how..Then once I do that I also gotta figure out how to take it off to eat or drink..Any thoughts?

Assiduity, Not sure if you need help still on the wig, but it looks like the jeanie would do. The jeanie comes with a clip on so you get more thickness in the ponytail, as well as not having to do as much cutting as the jasmine..I know by experience on both..

If I was you, for the claws, I would use plastic for the claws, of course, and either make some thing that you could pop them in the paw so they could lock in, or, keep the claw holes open and make separate like pillows to fit into the sleeve, with the claws already in it, so they can just slip through the holes.

For this second part, I was thinking about this, too. I personally would make small holes in the armpits of Tao's jacket, just big enough for your arms to fit, so you can slip them out so you can grab things or whatever. For the mask, I would probably take an actual mask mold and make one that is rounded, and maybe put like a mesh inside of a few layers of the mask that are red for the eyes and then the white for the mouth, and put them where your actual eyes and mouth are. Then when you make this, just paint it black, and maybe do the whole surgical mask method for attaching it to your face, so then you can wear it for pictures or whatever and still breathe in it, but you can take it off for leisure. Or, you could do the two strings on each side that tie in the back, so that when you slip it off, you can keep it tied together and you can hang it around your neck.

I hope this helped!

Yea that was my thought..I hope I can do then that way..I will need a structure, I know that much haha. I', thinking having it so my hands hold comething inside like a handle on the "paws" area, then have thaem what I can flick my wrist and force them out. Then push them back in. No real set ideas yet though..But yea plastic was my idea..

Yea I like that idea, but like I said, I was hoping to have the mask attached to the hood..I can't breathe very well at all with anything on my face like that. Even wearing one of those white halloween masks, or whatever, even though most people can breathe, I can't..So I didn't want it actually touching my face..But if I HAVE to I can do that..I have clay I can make it out of is I have to go that route..And for the arms, I already got that covered. I'm doing what most do and making the front seams have velcro.

Or, have you seen that video for turning a wooden clothes pin into a matchstick/toothpick gun? Maybe try to make a mechanism like that.

Hm. Maybe make it out of just cloth and sew the top to the inside of the hood, and make a velcrow strip on the bottom to hold it in place, so you can tuck it inside if you want your face to show? Or velcrow on both top and bottom, so you can remove it? This way, you can have it hang in front without touching your face.

I'm going to do that, too, the velcrow front, but I would rather be able to keep the jacket on than take it all off just to grab something, lol

Well not the video, but I know someone that can DO it lol I use to be able to, but forgot, but I know what you mean. Here's what I was thinkin, sorta..:
http://s88.photobucket.com/user/Razo...7f661.png.html
But it's having the actual LOCKING that's going to be the hard part..The blue would be like a metal structure so it keeps the shape..Like you seen those Assassins Crees hidden blade things that are under the arm? I want it to flick out like that..

That was another problem..I wanted it stiff too..I think I have to bare the mask and just ONLY wear it for pictures then politely tell people to stop taking pics when I start to need to take it off..I want the LED eyes..lol The best I can think of is like where it would have the side straps then the one on top. It would stay on better..

Hmm. I would say... Maybe take the same idea as a safety pin... How it stays put using a hook thing, but maybe... How in the picture, you have the handle sort of thing, you know... Maybe have it so that it is hooked on something, and you can move it with your hand outward from the hook and if you have some kind of spring that is like smoothed together connected to it, after you unhook it, the springs with force it forward. Then when you want to retract the claws, you could either push the claws down and re-hook it, or re-hook it by hand, if you can reach that far. :3

WELL, you could still make a solid/hard mask... You could just attach it like I said before, with velcrow or like hooks or something? And I don't know about LED lights, but I know at my local dollar store, you can buy like fake mini candles, maybe if you color it red or put a red mesh or like the old 3D glasses red part over it, you could probably get the same effect for cheaper... But it wouldn't be good for walking around lol...

By the way, sorry if I'm making you mad or frustrated with my ideas... I know how to make things work just in general, and I can imagine the shapes and whatnot, but I can't actually, like... Make them, lol. I try. ;u;
