I know it's probably kinda silly to be asking this, since I've already worn it around a con and at a photoshoot, but what do people generally think of a real-hair Reno cosplay? Cuz I liked his haircut, and my hair's red anyway...

Apologies in advance for the awkward lighting in the pic.

Hey all! Planning and Tifa cosplay and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice?

I've heard that people "stain" or simply "modify" work boots for her to get that obnoxious red color... but quite honestly, I have NO idea what "stain" means or what "modify" entails! Any details, friends? Thank you in advance for your time!

Does anyone have advice on Aerith's silver bangles from AC?
I'm making an AC Aerith with her Princess Guard staff and need help.

Hey, everyone.

So, I'm considering an Aerith cosplay, but...I don't really know where to begin ^^".

For starters, I guess I want to ask how plausable it is to use my real hair for this cosplay? I'm thinking that creating the "height" for her bangs could be difficult...

Opinions from Aerith cosplayers would be welcome, thanks ^^.

Oh, and Crisis Core! Cloud is also quite tempting for me to cosplay xD.

Does anyone have tutorials/tips/advice on Cloud's pauldron and the leatherwork over his chest?

Anybody have any advice on spiking Zack wigs? I'm trying to re-do mine (w/ a Punky wig and Got2B glue and spray) and I can't get the front to stay up to save my life :-/. I'm really relatively new to wig styling (aka making crap up as I go XD) so any help would be appreciated.

@jingle: lovely to see another original game costume...
It was my first one without her armor and I'm re-making it...then making the pink concept art of her

anywho I can help with the head things... they're virtually the ties to her head band
just stiffened...
I personally think her gloves and boots are more tanned with an orange hue... but that's my opinion.

her arm shield has straps on the inside http://www.testriffic.com/resultfile...8YuffieFF7.jpg

@shan: try gathering the hair strands to the spike, then spray the base of the spike and quickly brush a comb down the part you just sprayed, use a tiny bit of gel just on the tip of the spike so the hair stays together up there... then give the entire spike a light spray

@Ano: yes it is plausable to use your real hair, as for the height try roughly what I outlined for Shan, just minus the gel part since its bangs and not spikes

Thanks for the wig advice, I thought I was done but I might still fight with it later >.<.

Anyway, shameless self-promotion time--I'm almost done with my Costa del Sol Zack, it's in my gallery if anyone would care to see .

Does anyone know where to find decent screen shots of the Wallmarket / Don Corneo scenes where everyone is all dressed up?

I got a couple...can't promise they'll be any help but I can link them to you.
But can't really direct you to anywhere>.<

I have a couple more of just Cloud from those scenes since I'm working on that cosplay XD

I'm going to feel a bit silly if someone has already answered this question for you or it's been previously answered earlier in the thread and I missed from lack of reading but, I do cosplay Aerith and I use my real hair for the bangs. It's plausible to use your real hair, but it can be a bit tedious. lol ^_^'

For my bangs, I tease them 80's style and then use Got2BGlued spray to keep them in place. (I blow dry them so it dries faster) I then form them with a straightener and comb out the ends so they look a bit more natural. When you style your hair like this, don't use conditioner the morning or night before you do it because it will weigh your hair down and make it harder for the gravity defying effect. A down fall to using your real hair, at least for me is that they never turn out the same way. My bangs look a bit different each time I style them. Also places with high humidity can kill them in an instant. (At least that's what I've noticed. If anyone has any tips for combating humidity I'd love to know. lol ^_^ )

For my ponytail, I use a drawstring extension because my hair doesn't grow past the middle of my back and long hair is just a pain for day to day activities. >.<

You can check out my gallery for pictures of my Aerith cosplay and if you have any more questions or more details just message me and I'll try to be as in depth as I can!
