I probably would make a good Credo, and he is pretty cool too.
I just checked this page for Credos and it looks like I would have veeeerry little competition. There were only two lol.

Ok, so I know I haven't checked this thread in a while, so sorry if I bring up old topics ^_^;

@Cilo - I can tell you from personal experience about the craft foam and the wood (balsa specifically). The foam is wickedly easy to work with and incredibly cheap, not to mention security never has a problem with it. Problem is that if you don't build it up enough it will be floppy... and no one wants that. XD The balsa was a little more difficult to work with b/c you have to cut and sand it down but it was a lot more sturdier and I think it looked better. But you have to make sure to keep it safe or it could break (one of my jaggedy-things broke so duct tape came to the rescue the last day of akon).

@Valorman - Yeah Credo would definatly work, I'm also thinking Nero might be good. But welcome to our thread!! ::chears::

Valorman, I think you'd make an awesome Credo or Nero! But Credo doesn't get enough love so he would be awesome to see more of.

Check the phone book and see if there's a leather wholesaler near you, and check their scrap bins for cheap dyed/exotic leather. I live half an hour from a wonderful leather wholesaler that sells scrap for between $5 and $15 per pound, depending on variety. The scraps are usually large enough to make several costume accessories (holsters, gloves, etc.).

If you don't have a wholesaler within driving distance, pick up some soft garment leather at a fabric store and use leather dye (available at leather shops and some shoe stores) or opaque shoe polish to color it.

What color are your eyes naturally (or are you wearing two contacts)? You should choose a color that is dramatically different from the other eye, so it's obvious that you have the dichrome thing going on. So if your eyes are naturally a light or medium brown, I'd go with a more vivid green contact for the right eye. If your eyes are really dark brown, you could go hazel. If your eyes are blue, get one brown and one green contact.

Does anyone know where to get some high quality (I don't think anyone should be putting low quality anything in they're eyesDX) blue contacts?
any price range. (The reason I'm putting this here is because it's for my Nero cosplay for next year)

Blue contacts are pretty easy to come by, since it's a standard eye color. (And of course you want to have your base curve measured, etc. before you buy any kind of contacts.) There's a comprehensive contact lens thread in the makeup forum; I'd suggest checking that thread for more info.

I second this recommendation. There's a leather store near me as well, and they saved my ass while working on Lady. Just be careful with the leather scraps because when you run out and need more, sometimes it's hard to find the right color/texture again.

I don't know what I was thinking not asking you guys before....

I'm not making this right this minute but on my blog I asked people to vote for which dye job they thought matched best. I should have asked you guys too...
The gray on the left was all OMG NO with water so it didn't take dye well.
And please constructive criticisms are welcomed. I know monitors differ but go ahead, take a shot and pick a number.

Dyes 1 and 2 look really similar on my screen too. I'd say go with Dye #3, the darker one.

Does anyone have a good shot of Lady's bullet packs/her back piece/gloves? (Maybe not the gloves. eBay has some close ones)

I plan to get them commissioned, but I'd need a good shot.

Or does any one have a general idea on how they look?

What do you all think about http://cgi.ebay.ca/DRIVING-LEATHER-G...86 .m63.l1177 ? It has the hole shape, but there's knuckle holes, so it isn't entirely accurate.. There's also http://cgi.ebay.ca/DRIVING-LEATHER-G...86 .m63.l1177 But it doesn't have the same hole shape, though it doesn't have the knuckle holes, but is a brighter red than before... (I'm also not a fan of the air holes.)
Can one dye leather?
