I wonder if there is a good place with good prices on wigs. (punky short ish) also would altering a pair of slippers with felt and interfacing work? thanks.
First off, PLEASE don't buy the shoes from the website above. They make my eyes bleed to look at. x_x Most people use either converse or black skater shoes and just paint the details on, but if you want to be super accurate you can buy some slippers and sculpt some foam over them to make the shape. Then you can cover them with yellow and black fabric. It's a bit more challenging, but the results are rewarding, I think. =) That's the method I used, and I've got pictures on here if you wanna see.

As for a wig, I recommend the "New Punk" from Amphigory. It's only $23 and all it requires is styling and a bit of trimming. =)

actually, i got the new punk wig from amphigory and it looks ok, but you can't style it up into spikes, it just doesn't work! Fortunatly, i was doing a twist costume on soul, so i just cut the wig's lenghth and it was self styled for what i wanted , but it doesn't spike the way Soul's hair does, so don't buy it, PLEASE!!!!!!

Oh really? o_O Iridescent_Falls got the New Punk and she got it to spike really well. Huh, that's weird. What products were you using to spike it?

That's strange, since (as Spirit_Pup said) I DO have the New Punk and it worked very well for Soul. Mind you, it wasn't the easiest task to give it the proper shape initially. I must've spent at least a couple of hours brushing the wig and using clips to separate the spikes (this was after I sewed the completed headband into the wig). Then it was just a matter of using a strong hairspray and a blowdryer, and hair glue on the ends of the spikes. Besides that all I had to do was trim the wig quite a bit at the back, and the lengths of the spikes. Now, I wouldn't recommend the wig for any other version of Soul (like Black Blood Soul for example) since the New Punk has a lot of volume.

Just take a look at my costume list and you can see my styled New Punk. Maybe you're not using the right products or you just need a bit more patience when styling it? I'm not a professional wig styler by any means but if I can help you out at all, let me know.

My roommate is a professional wig stylist as well, and while I don't claim to be an expert... I'm fairly sure that any wig can by styled into a spikey hair style with the right hair product and some patience. Some fibres don't hold as well as others, but I wouldn't say it was impossible.

Try using cheap hairsprays and stuff. Got2Be and Aquanet work well. Also Got2Be Glued works wonders for spikes, just don't use alot, or it weights the spikes down. Also, GRAVITY and the BLOWDRYER are you friend.

I'm not sure how wax does on wigs, but I do know gatsby works real well on hair.
GOT2B works too

Cheap hairspray and a hair dryer does wonders. I wouldn't go overboard with product, or it's going to be sticky and flaky.

I just recently found a skirt that I think would work really well for Maka cosplayers that are looking for the plaid pleated skirt! You'll have to take a seamripper and take off the black decoration at the hip but it's one of the closer matches I've seen! Don't be fooled at how flat it looks in the picture though....it's actually a lot more fuller looking when you put it on:

http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/juni...+Miniskirt.jsp

The do run a little on the small side though and go up to size 13. If you have hips go up a size so it sits down lower because the bottom hemline is REALLY short. I tried one on in my size and the bottom of the skirt came down to the very bottom of my booty. XD! So I went up a size so I could put it down a bit lower for a longer hemline.

!!! I saw that skirt at the store a few weeks ago XD and I was thinking the same thing. Except I wish the pleats went all the way to the waist rather than just halfway. It's really cute though.

I'm going to start working on this outfit: (see attatchment)
and there's so many things on it that seem ..impossible ^^;;
Not sure how to describe it, but I swear so many of the clothes he draws are just possible in real life XD XD why are there earrings hanging off the sailor collars O_o and can anyone think of a good way to make the skulls in her hair?

They look like box pleats to me. And I assume there are earrings because... of style? |D You could either put them through button holes, or use small grommets to make the holes so they don't fray.

Hey, I'm having problems with my cosplay of stein. The bolt is all wrong, I couldn't find a arrow through the head prop at any of my local costume stores save for one that was made out of very weak material similar to that of a Halloween mask. If anyone could find a sturdy prop online with rush shipping as I need this prop for otakon 09 it would be helpful. (17-19th of july).

Also I'm not sure if I should scrap the piece I have made thus far and start anew. I think the head of the bolt may be to big, and I bought a noise maker but I haven't embedded it into the bolt head yet. I don't know how to cut a perfect circle out of modeling Styrofoam so I bought pre existing circular pieces, and I made the cylinder similar to the material described in the walk through, but its paper foam if you will but looks very similar to the material.

Me with the bolt on. I originally wanted to use a copper wire to make the prop, but I don't know how to fashion it into the correct shape without it messing a lot with the wig. As you can see I'm using stretchy string and it messes with the wig to much, and the prop sags, I've done everything I could think to do with the wig. Also I'm going to get a lighter metallic spray paint this paint is to dark.


The prop I made


Me without the prop.


Also I am having trouble finding a large Grey turtleneck sweater to go with the cosplay. I'm debating whether I should buy one or not because I will prob get hot in it.

Also if you have any suggestions for materials online give me the links asap.

NOTE: this is my first cosplay ever and I'm not the artsy type, and I don't have a lot of resources. Keeping it simple is probably better in my case as I will prob screw up anything complicated
