I haven't done cosplay before and have no idea where to start. I'm probably not actually going to *do* anything for some time yet, probably not for a good year most likely (I have a lot to learn, and basically no idea where to start), but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask, at least to get some ideas (I'm not terribly familiar with a lot of the character options that are out there.)
165cm *exactly* (about 5'6" if I recall correctly. We use metric in Australia, so don't be surprised if I'm wrong on that. Metric's a lot easier to use, by the way.)
Some weird greyish-blue colour.
Not a good idea with the gut I've got. I'm liable to cause people to pass out. And not for the good reason. I'd prefer to save myself the embarrasment.
Yeah, I'd actually prefer using a wig for this. I can't do *ANYTHING* with this hair. It's stupidly uncooperative. I'm also balding early (seems to run in the family) so yeah. Wigs are good.
No (open to trying them, but I suspect it might cause issues with the eye drops that I use, so it might be best to avoid them. I'm not too fussed on matching the eye colour personally anyway at this point, just to getting a feel for the whole deal).
Very much open to it, but I probably haven't the body (big gut, but can suck it in, and willing to consider methods of keeping it in, as well as actually losing the weight, which is probably the best idea tbh) and probably not the right face shape for it. But again, if you think of something that'd be doable, I'm open to the idea. It sounds like fun.
About as good as my mechanical skills*. Although I'd obviously be willing to learn how to sew (there's a pair of cargo pants I have that's a bit
too long and needs taking up anyway...)
Yep, I wear them anyway. A very strong prescription too (+6.5 I believe) so yeah. Kinda important. You shoulda seen the ones I had as a really little kid.
Yes, the left eye is bad. No, there's not really anything I can do about it.
Feel free to suggest options that might be suitable if I lose some weight. Frankly, I probably need to. A motivation would be good.
Woah, this got long. Sorry folks!
*aka honestly haven't got a clue. Never trust me with a mechanical implement. Ever. Except a screwdriver. I do know how to work those.
