With the style of Repo you could probably wear platforms as Repo-Man and get away with it. If you're going for accuracy in look rather than height, don't let it bother you.

As for the repo mask: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRqLv_kSWnM I believe Adam (the awesome guy who worked on the costume <3) explains partially how they made the helmet.

P.S. For those of you in Toronto, Bloor Cinema's has released TWO MORE DATES to show Repo. one in February (a double header with Rocky Horror) and another date in March. Both of them are being Shadow Casted

Have you tried posting your question on the actual Repo forums? If he's posted it already people will point you in the right direction, if not, he or some of the other cast/workers will help you.

I still need to make my mask for Pavi.
I'm frightened by the idea of making a lifecast of the roomie's face without assistance, so I'm wondering if I should apply liquid latex to a blankface type mask from the local costume shop and use makeup for that.

Hey all :D We'll be cosplaying from Repo at NYCC and Katsucon :3 Can we please please PLEASE have a gathering at either con? Repo is just too wonderful to be ignored! :D

Alex will be cosplaying Blind Mag and Juli will be Amber Sweet :D Chromaggia and Zydrate Anatomy outfits, respectively.

We're SO EXCITED to see more Repo cosplayers out there~ :]

Oh man oh man, was I thrilled to see this thread on here. I have been addicted to this for months and FINALLY got to see the film in it's entirety today. Over here on the west coast there is a Sci-Fi con in March called Wondercon. I'm hopping to have a Shilo for it, or maybe if I fill ambitious a Blind Mag outfit (if so her Chormaggia outfit). Anyone else planning on hitting up this con and possible joining me in some good old Repo! extravaganza? There will be singing and fake organs I'm sure.

Katsucon you say? I have a Repo group on Sunday!
We'll have an Amber Sweet, a Pavi, a Gentern, and a (kind of last second) Blind Mag!

Shall we do it then?
We must sing!

I was thinking since most Repo costumes are pretty formal, we could have a gathering before the Valentines Day ball :3 I know I'm wearing Mag for it~ It just seems appropriate XD We always kind of look terrible on Sundays of cons and would have to rush to get checked out of the hotel and such. Either way, we'll definitely have a meet up :] And there will be MUCH singing :D

We all have our costumes planned out for the weekend already and I'm actually doing Kuroshitsuji cosplay shoot before the ball in Formal!Sebastian gear. XD

But I mean, I'm pretty sure we'll be recognizable on Sunday if you want to come over, say hi, and do a round of At the Opera Tonight.
(And I can try my best to sing Chromaggia (been practicing), which'll be hilarious since I'm the Pavi!)

Ahah that sounds amazing XD I can't wait to hear that! XD Pavi is so amazing. We look forward to your costume! :D

And it depends how difficult it will be to get in/out of my Mag costume :d I'm gonna be covered in feathers and such XD If it's not too much trouble, I'll definitely throw her on.

Any of you guys going to NYCC wanna get a group together on Friday or Sunday? :3

Unfortunately no, that's a little out of our reach here in North Carolina. Harhar.

Indeed.There's a myspace as well as a facebook for it.

But,for whatever reason...mostly people arguing over who thought of it first and should rightfully organize it-It's a banned topic of discussion on the board and in the chat.

But omgomgliekawsumomg*cough*it would be so awesome.I plan to go help out with the setting up and whatnot when it's actually all finalized.

And SaintQ-If you can find it at either a craft store or toy store that sells model trains,you can get rolls of plaster wrap.You just wet it and lay it on the persons' face til it hardens and pull it off.It's really simple and afterward you just paint in the latex,peel that out and paint it.
Hopefully I's helpful.
