i think it all depends on your color brightness (whatever its called) on your monitor or tv. but as long as it looks like it close to the color thats all that really matters..

So I have a question about Mad Moxxi's coat. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...1024x76 8.jpg
How can I make the lower part stay up like that? Don't really figure it out.

I don't think anyone would give you any grief is it didn't say up, but if you have your heart set it then it sounds like a job for starch. Lots and lots of starch. Liquid starch to be exact. Here's a link I found that should help out: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_would...clothing_stiff

Agreed. Or maybe even some boning on the sides.

^ I would agree with the boning to help it stay up.
I finally got to do a shoot with Lilith today! I live on the east coast though, and finding an area to shoot at was a pain.

My wife and I will be attending the 2013 Ottawa Comiccon as Borderlands Characters, going as Lilith for my wife and I will be the " Marauder " bandit. You know, the guy everyone kills with the red mask.

Not sure if the link'll work, but this was my first incarnation of the costume for Hallowe'en. Came out pretty well, hoping to one-up it this year.

Awesome!! My hubby and I are going to be at the Ottawa Comiccon too!! I've been working feverishly to get everything together for his Dr Zed costume and my Moxxi costume Hope we'll see you there! I was wondering if there were going to be any more Borderlands types there! I'll post some photos when we have them

Hey there, everyone! At MTAC 2013 my fiancee and I debuted our Borderlands 2 costumes. He went as Salvador, and I attended as Zer0. Both costumes were crafted by him. More photos are on dA. There's a few of his costume, as well.

Uh - Ma - ZING! I'm certian you already know this but I must say that your fiancÚ is a certified costume crafting badass! You both look absolutely perfect - the attention to detail is astounding... I could gush for days about it! I can only imagine the MONTHS of work he put into these - kudos times twenty!

There was a whole crowd of Borderlands Cosplayers at Ottawa Comiccon this weekend! No formal photoshoot was set, but a huge chunk ended up crashing together at one point, as soon as I find a picture (the ones I had someone take with my phone were BLURRY), I'll be sure to post!

We had:
Moxxi (Me!)
Two Dr Zeds
Lilith
Maya
Roland
Axton
Gaige
Salvador
Handsome Jack
Tannis
Lady Psycho
Daisy

Also ran into Valenkeit and his wife (Marauder and Lilith) at a different point - and a few others along the way, so lots of Borderlands repping!

Sounds like you're doing well so far! The obvious choice is the standard buzzaxe. I wanted to get one made for my hubby's Zed costume, but I ran out of time. I've seen a few around (some better than others) but for mine I'm starting with a foam sword as the base, which I'll be shaping and coating in... well, something, probably epoxy or air dry clay, stiff cardboard for the blade, craft foam for the upper structure (that houses the blade). Well see how it goes

So I have searched and searched and searched and haven't found a single decent picture of the Borderlands group from Ottawa Comiccon. This one (which was only marginally better than mine) gives the idea of what was there, but I wish someone had posted a proper one I know there was at least one person with a decent camera in the group of 50+ who gathered around when we got together, but no luck finding it:

Borderlands Group Picture!

(apparently I can't post photos?)

And I put a few of the ones taken of my hubby and I in my profile I'm still waiting for the rest of the professional ones from the masquerade, but there are enough to give the idea of how our costumes turned out! I was so happy with the finished look, all I need to do for next time (an upcoming photoshoot with a friend) is make our weapons, fix my button placement, and probably re-do the top hat to be shorter and less curly in the brim area. Oh, and actually have someone do my hair so it stays when I curl it.

Anyone planning any upcoming cosplays? Any Kreig fans putting something together now that he's out?
