You are SO awesome for posting Bee picture. We are planning to do small Letter Bee group for Fanime. I will be making Jiggy Pepper - CAUSE HE IS SUPER AWESOME BEE WITH SUPER AWESOME NAME! :-) And I friggen love this show - I think I cry during it as much as Lag does. XD.

I think the best way to go about making the Letter Bee hat, would be to get some adhesive gems. They're fairly cheap (about two bucks for a package of about forty) and you can get them the size you like best. (I would go with fairly small gems, as the design would look better with more gems instead of less.) One other piece of advice that I would recommend is not just assuming that the gems will stick and not fall off. get some fabric glue and make SURE they will stay and not fall off of the hat.

Hope this helps

I used yellow acrylic gemstones for my hat.
Lemme tell you, flip-flop glue, works like a charm.

I was thinking of buying this hat for Gauche. But idk if it would be easy to re-color. (I'm a noob lol)

http://cgi.ebay.com/NWT-American-Eag...item562e4f012d

Anyone know how I would be able to re-color that to a really dark blue? lol

EDIT: Nvrmnd I found a better hat ^^" lol

For ACEN this year I'm working on a Niche costume and my friend is going to try to be Roda.

The problem though is that we haven't really seen any color pics of Roda (that I know of. Correct me if I'm wrong) so she's having trouble with it. Does anyone have any color suggestions? The main outfit I think would be white. What color would you make the petal-like cloak(hard to explain, the part that's in strips), the flower in her hair, and her scarf? I've seen some people use pink and blue for the scarf but I'm leaning towards red, assuming it's the same scarf from when she's a dog.

Also for me, anyone have any tips for making Niche's gloves? I want them to look as poofy and formed as I can. I thought about having oven mitts underneath the fabric and maybe some stuffing added in but I'm not sure how it'd look.

I actually cosplayed Lag at Ax last year with my friend as Zaji. I don't really recommend bedazzler because from what I've seen, it's kind of bulky... but then again, the bee would probably be shinnier. The price for shininess though is detail. With the bedazzler, its really hard to make the bee look like a bee. I just used the iron on rhinestones from Michaels... they usually come in a skull pattern. My friend printed out a picture of the bee and we copied that by rearranging the stones. Turns out, we suck at ironing so I glued each stone individually. Sorry if that didn't help.

here's a pic of my hat thing http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2139653/

I'm crossplaying as gauche and i already have the rhinestones, i say go get rhinestones and glue them on individually!

and also if you have a swami (like a cheap local sales market place usually where people sell things for cheap under tents), they sell some pretty good fabric for cheap.
I stopped going to Joanne's after i discovered how much more stuff they sold there, but i still go to joanne's for specialty things that swami doesn't sell or clothe that's expensive.

My biggest suggestion (pending you have the ability to sew), is to get a pattern that fits the outfit. There are a few suit jacket patterns from Simplicity that work - I used one of those for my particular costume. If you aren't craft savvy, look online or in thrift shops for a suit jacket that may be the right color. (Which is harder than it sounds.) As for the pants, depending on your size you'll be able to find the right color if you have a Wal*mart near you. (I've looked, and they're generally the same wherever you go.) They'll be in the scrubs section of the store. The rest is just accessories. I ended up sewing my own hat (with another pattern from Simplicity), and making an outline of the bee with a white tracing pencil. I then glued flat-backed gems from JoAnn's into the outline. The white scarf is probably the easiest accessory to make. The bag is a take or leave accessory. I've never used one with my costume, but I have a black side-bag that I use to complete the outfit.

I hope this helps!
