wah! i can't believe i've missed this thread! i'm so glad i'm not the only one who wants to cosplay from that movie. my Grave Robber costume is just about done. i'm also doing Genterns and Amber Sweet (Zydrate Anatomy version). but anyone know where to get those orange sunglass things that Genterns wear?

@Dib-ooh, i hope you do Grave Robber at Comic Con! we should totally have a gathering or at least a meet-up for Repo fans.

I do. You can order the soundtrack online from Amazon I think (don't be an ass and torrent it like i did >>)

As for the gentern-visors? The cheapest way I can think of is to get some of those colored plastic dividers for notes at Staples and cut them into shape then hold them on with a piece of elastic?
I have to figure this out for my genterns too before Animazement.

The masks are literally an 8.5 x 11 sheet of acetate, yes the kind made for report covers.
I cut it out so that the 8.5 is the height, the width should be whatever will cover your face.
It starts narrower at the bottom and slightly wider at he top, with slight pointy peaks (I dip the top down in the middle - slightly, like a half an inch).
We stapled strips of tulle on a ties, so that the hair department could bobby pin them as well. (scratchy part of the staple out)
We added vinyl sticky tabs (those small clear circles you get at the hardware store to put on glass cabinet doors) at the sides, and sometimes at the bridge of the nose, to give some distance between the visor and the eyelashes.

These are super easy to make, and cheap. Most good art supply, printing places or office supply stores should have the acetate sheets. You may have to buy a folded report cover (which could make 2 masks).

Hope this helps?

Talking Repo fan

I will be cosplaying as Rotti Largo for the Repo Road Tour 3. I was not able to get the costume ready in time for the show earlier this month (however, I did cosplay as an original character based on the movie). I will be ready for the stop in Foxboro, MA next month. I also plan on cosplaying as Rotti Largo for Anime Boston '09 and GenCon Indy 2009.

A friend is wanting to do just about every female costume in Repo!, whereas I'm just really looking at Rotti. @__@ I have no idea WHY I want to do Rotti, but yeah. Still on the fence about it. I need me some henchgirls.

I hear that. I'm trying to recruit some Henchgirls for the upcoming Road Tour 3 stop in Foxboro, MA. My Rotti costume should be ready very soon.

FYI: Most of Shilo's costumes were mostly bought at H&M as for fabric all of it was bought in Toronto, Ontario (only exception are the items that belong to the actors like Amber's OMG glitter bra and cincher from Zydrate Anatomy)

We're rhinstoning the shit out of a bra for our Amber (she found a corset at Victorias Secret that looks almost like Ambers in Zydrate Anatomy)
I found shiny leggings that I'm gunna loosen up a bit for Pavi's pants.

Anybody doing Repo! At Katsucon? I have a group of Pavi, gentern, Amber, and Blind Mag going the Sunday, prepared to sing our little hearts out.

i'm saintq's amber. i'm not totally finished but i did a test run of the costume when i went to go see the movie in charlotte. i also had a gentern (my friend) and a zydrate addict (my mom) with me.

i still need to add on to my garter belt, get a choker, and get liquid latex to make my scars (i just painted them on for the movie). i'd love to hear what you guys think of it so far. the pictures are here: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/193981/
