Sad how DragonBall Z is forgotten for so many

Me as Bulma;

It was too big for this site, so I linked my DA photo.

My friend as Videl;

I like her Buu Saga dress the most, but I look kinda young so would it look weird? IDK. So yeah might do an earlier DBZ outfit instead.

BLECHHH... any thoughts???
In the Buu saga Bulma wears 2 dresses, the green one and the red one, so you can choose!
And what about a DB outfit? I think the Jasmine look a like one is very pretty! ^_^

It was a blast (except I lost my cell phone during that very same photo shoot ) I went as Android 15 from DBZ Movie 7 and my friend went as Commander Red from Dragon ball.

I'm planning on taking my Android 15 cosplay to Anime Detour this year and Otakon as well. My next DBZ cosplay is gonna be a hard one: I'm planning to do final form Cooler from DBZ movie 5. Does anyone have any ideas how I would make that thick skull head mask thing he has?
Yeah man!!! DB-Z costumes for life!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm planning a lot more DB and DBZ (and maybe GT) costumes!!!!!!! *_*

Waaaaa android 15!!!!! And Commander Red!!!!!!! I'm wanna se pics!!! Please!!!
It's just a pity we live so far away because I'm planning with some friends an entire DB-Z-GT bad guys group for 2010 and I will be Zarbon! *_*
But I would also like to do android 17 and Colonel Violet! My dreams will be an android grupo together with androids 17 and 16 driving a pink van and an entire Red Ribbon army group! *_*
My next DBZ projects will be Celipa, Supreme Kai with a friend of mine as Gohan with the Z Sword dressed with kai outfit and a special group with other friends!

alright I've been wanting to do uub or majuub for awhile, possibly for AWA;
the problem is, if I buy a mohawk wig it won't match my skin tone, so any ideas?

hey all, random question here, i am planning a Vegeta, i'm rather short and of all people my Dad said i could probably pull it off XD (my Goku went well at my convention) and i'm wondering what materials are best for his saiyan armor? It's the namek saga armor i would like to do. I want to use spandex or something like that for the blue fabric part to the uniform and vinyl for the boots and gloves, or if anybody has any better suggestions could they please help me out ^_^ any advice would really help my cosplay so i don't make a silly mistake on it x.x'

Can't say there is a best material. I'm using twill for the armor, boots, and gloves. And, for the blue part, you can just buy a unitard.Scoop Neck Unitard. By the way, I may have just realized a way to make the raised designs...

I think it's because dbz is an anime show that almost everyone knows about. Even if they are not real anime fans. They figure if they're going to cosplay then dbz is the easiest. Afterall, dbz's art is not all that great. but is still a great show!

My word, Saiyan Armor Trunks is such a labor of love. I couldn't find the perfect yellow I wanted for the sectionals,but it'll have to do.(Which I also am not too satisfied with.) I wish I could get the yellow sectionals to "puff out" like fhis-->Trunks Poster Buuuuut, some sewed on black lines will have to suffice for....now.>_> I'm putting on the white trim and will then be sewing in the black lines. Um, the straps suck right now, and it's just oh so tedious sewing on the black lines. Basically for the armor,it's just the straps, the trim,and sewing on the sectionals and that's that.As for everything else, it can be ordered. I am making the boot covers though, since I've figured away to get the fabric to conform to my boot and still have if stand up straight in the DBZ fashion.

At Otakon 2009 my group decided on a DBZ cosplay and went as the 4 Kai's (I was King Kai) and the repsonse was EPIC to say the least. We were only in the outfits for about 3 hrs (due to heat) and coudln't even walk 5 feet without someone asking for a photo. I had so much fun wearing King Kai that he has moved up on my list of favorite costumes to wear.

It's funny how many people don't know Anime, but when I show them the photo of my King Kai they always say "hey that from that cartoon Dragon ball?" Hey I know I should really correct them but at least they reconize the character.

OOOOOK, I officially hate my vest. Top-stitching bias tape on my vest for the sectionals did not look as good as I thought it would. Same goes for the tape on the edges of the vest for the black lines. I'll just temp.stitch the tape and sew right next to it to get the black line effect instead. I'll try again with the stretch fabric,but not put any foam in there for the padded vest look. Maybe just the yellow parts. I'll probably be super anal and just use black piping.>_> Still waiting on the wig. My progress is trial and error,yay.

Waaaaa Uub!!! I've never seen someone cosplaying him! Great!
For the mohawk u can use the method I made for my Kaioshin cosplay! I put on my head a latex bald cap, very very thin and natural. It was a professcional one (the ones used for theatrical and movie make up artists), then u glue it on your head with spirit gum (be careful to protect your hair from any athesive or glue!!!), cover the lids (professcionaly called step) with some prostethic and let it dry and then u glue the mohawk on your head covered with the bald cap. My mohawk has been made with pieces of foam rubber by a friend of mine who made it for me very kindly. ^___^
