lol That's totally what I'm going for with the zipper otherwise I would've just done a facemask or something. >3 I'm thinkin about getting some spirit gum or other skin adhesive and just attaching the zippers to my lips or rather the cloth part you sew will be attached to the part above/below my lips so the zipper's in front of my mouth.

@Tatsu-chan - so I picked up this random 'TONE your body' DVD today and ... I like it but hate it. I think sit-ups are bad! because most people do them wrong causing the muscle to bulge out rather than be flat (I want flat darnit) SO those are out because my tummy just doesn't feel like it XD; leglifts to the chest seem to work (however my tummy still burns from testing that DVD >_< ) DDR in a song I don't know well in a mode I can't play gets the same results.

I don't eat bad persay. I don't eat a lot of junk or fastfood (just candy because of work) and I've always had tons of fruits and veggies. what in the world is an uncle willie???? lunges! I haven't done those in forever! didn't think of those since they are more a stretch to me but I like them :3 good idea

@StrawberryNinja - *giggle* "oh don't mind me **ZIP**"
'normal person:' X_@

*also on the Dance Dance Workout Plan* There's a dvd I used before though which is walking 3 mi in 45 min. It's simple, but works. :3 Oh, before I forget, your Chingling is too cute Solstis~. I want to do a Chimecho myself. Also, I wish to steal your Shaymin hat. <>__<>

I'm going to make a rapidash cosplay. I'm so excited! It's gona be westren themed - cowgirl time! But I do have an issue.... how do I make the flames? My idea is to make a wire frame and use diffrent fabrics to try to get the flame effect. Do you guys have any better ideas? And how would I sew it all together... by hand? (I'm horable at sewing by hand. Time to ask my dad's girlfriend for help.)

@Lorelai: Hmm... y'know that plasticy paper stuff that's used for fake torches? I'm afraid I don't know what it's called, but it's translucent sheets of red and orange paper that ripple like flames in the wind. If you can find anything like that, you might want to give that a try. It should at least mean you don't have to worry about sewing. I like the cowgirl-esque Rapidash idea, though; brings back fond memories of the first season of Pokemon, given the episode Ponyta/Rapidash appeared in.

DDR for the win XD

@Lorelai_adler there is always fabric glue or fuezable webbing :3 and if you use stiff fabric like felt by the yard and there are a few others as well it will stand on it's own if sewn right (like making gathers)

I know the stuff Eliteslayer is refering to I can't recal what it's called either >_<;; cellophane?? might be a type of it I think there ssoemthing else like it that is shimers

Hi guys!
I haven't been here in a while, but I'm making a bunch of gijinkas w/ my friends!
So, the situation is- My school is hosting a jump rope for heart disease fundraiser. You make your own team with your friends, and you choose a team name, make posters, and costumes!
I made a group with me and 4 friends, and our theme is Pokemon.
So far, I'm being Pikachu, one girl is Umbreon, a pair of girls are being Plusle and Minun, and IDK about the other girl yet.
Anyway, I plan to make my ears by using some felt and craft wire to a headband. Sound good?
My outfit is- a yellow v-scoop tee shirt, a brown tank top underneath, a yellow skort, brown legwarmers and brown sneakers, pikachu ears and a black ribbon around my neck. It helps that I have blond hair...lawl.

Just be careful with felt. You can never wash it. D: If you want something nice you should go with fleece; you'll only need a little bit if all you're making are ears. :]

BTW calophane can't be sewn or atleast sewn well since it's plasitc thats why I'm not sure if that when was ment. however there is a shinny irridencent fabric I saw when I was out yesterday in the costuming section... you see it in fairy costume skirts a lot

Hmmm...I'm thinking of making a Shellder gijinka, with pretty much just a purple body suit on the bottom and a shellder for the head. I'm going to have to figure out how to make the shellder on the head though, especially with me being able to breath in it.

@Lorelai: Maybe you could use some type of sheer fabric if you do decide to sew. Also, I've seen flames made of tissue paper. I dunno how it'd look on a costume though.

@Nekoofdeath: O_O Wow. Good luck with that. For the head, maybe you could use the same method as people who do mecha cosplays. ._.?
