No More Heroes Cosplay

Okay, the game looks freaking awesome, has a lot of great characters, and is just begging for someone to cosplay it.

I'd like to do Travis Touchdown for Otakon. I already have the saber and the jeans. Does anyone know a good place to get custom t-shirt designs that DOESN'T force you to buy 50 at one time?

would making your own iron on transfer be an idea?? as long as you can find a clear image.. you should be able to make your own tshirts =^.^=

The problem is the image I want is really detailed:

This is the design on Travis's shirt. I know some places do actual shirt printing, which is what I'm hoping for. Problem is I've heard that you need to do multiple shirts to do it, plus Travis's specific shirt is kind of weird (It's white with red rings, I think).

wow.. i've been wondering what was on his shirt since i first saw screen shots of this game! *laughs* the mystery has been solved! i'll look into finding some shirt printing places for you. man.. i remember back in the day you couldn't walk into a mall without finding a tshirt making place..


EDIT: i might have found a place! have you seen this one? http://www.customink.com/indexb.html

click on the t-shirt link.. they even have ringer shirts (the red rings you're referring to, i belive) and you can order just one i think you have to hit the customink singles link to do it. i didn't look into all the details.. but, as far as i can tell it's just what you need =^.^= if not, let me know.. i'll search more after work

Also...cafepress does custom teeshirts. I don't know if you have to buy a certain number of them, though.

As some one told you, the easiest cheapest way to do it is with transfer ^^
You just need to but some transfer sheets (they sell them in big stationers), then print the image you need to use in the transfer sheet (in a current normal printer) and then iron the sheet in the t-shirt.

I've made my own shirts with transfer and they make a good impression!

I also plan to cosplay Travis, so this is helpful for me as well.

Travis' shirt is pink, by the way. Not white.

::counting down until 1/22::

Yay, it's cool to see others were planning on cosplaying this game. I want to cosplay Shinobu sometime this summer. Anyone have any ideas what kind of wig would work for her giant mop of hair??

Ooh...it is pink. Huh. It looks white in some of the artwork >_>.

Hmm...this proves a problem. None of CustomInk's shirts are pink with red rings. I SUPPOSE I can do dye job, but I dunno how that would work with the design on it >____>

Although I suppose it might be easier to go the other route...get a pink shirt without rings, then dye the rings on.

hmm.. yea.. i'm not sure how easy a pink shirt with red rings would be to find.. i'd go the get a pink shirt and dye (or sew) red rings on it. i'll keep an eye out for a pink shirt with red rings though! definately post pictures when your costume is complete! =^.^=

Hey guys. I am planning on making a Bad Girl cosplay. Any ideas on how to make the skirt? I have a few ideas, but I would like to see if anyone has any suggestions I hadn't thought of.

Hey Sam, what kind of WW2 belt did you get (country of origin, etc)? I too am going for a Travis Touchdown cosplay and have no idea what to do for the belt.
