Im looking for a black top with ruffles exactly like the one TOP is wearing here:
"Forget the cookies, come to the dark side, we have yaoi!
Would you like to trade your large cosplay for my ABJD?

So, I want to cosplay John from Homestuck:

Where do I find those shoes? They look like TOMs, but is it possible to find them in that color in a men's 10?
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Group cosplay space pirates of multiple generations. Carrying a boom box loaded with space pirate music.

Another, more doable one would be a squad of Dai Li agents from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I'd like to see some links to places you can buy cloaks or capes. I need one, but am absolutely TERRIBLE at sewing, or fabric craft of any kind.

I cannot for the life of me find pants for Miguel: http://images4.fanpop.com/image/phot...6-1246-708.jpg

The one in red... I've found some crappy breeches that have elastic in the cuffs, but I can't find a good pair of pants that even looks remotely like his. Can ANYONE help me? I can't sew, so making them isn't really an option

Any suggestions on where to get gems/crystals? I'm thinking specifically for TP Zelda, but crystals in general would be good.

For TP I would suggest looking for chandelier crystals and blue glass paint. You can find them on ebay a lot.

Question Fake teeth/fangs/claws?

Does anyone know where I might find fake animal fangs (bear, sabre tooth, wolf size would be great?)

To be used as coat toggles, as well as boot and belt embellishments?
Current Projects:
The Hobbit - Dwarf Lady - 50%

Planned Projects:
LotR - Merry (Green Coat) - 10%
The Hobbit - Thorin Oakenshield - 5%
The Hobbit - Bifur - 0%

Finished Projects:
Doctor Who - River Song (A Time of Angels/Flesh & Stone) - 90%
(unexpected hair failure at the last minute *facepalm*)

Here's a request I posted in another forum- it was suggested I post here first, so here it is!

Originally Posted by Hwari View Post
I've been considering trying a Black Egret from Skullgirls (http://www.giantbomb.com/skullgirls/...er/51-2181820/) which pretty much looks like I'd need:

-An olive double-breasted suit (like http://www.mensitaly.com/products.aspx?id=11153... not sure about how I would tackle the pants? I'm not even sure what they're called) The red shirt and tie are probably the easiest items to procure.

-A brown load-bearing vest, or webbing? Although I have a feeling I won't have a lot of luck searching for one that looks like the one depicted. Or maybe it's not quite a load-bearing vest/webbing (it actually does look a little more like a few belts in the Egrets' case). It looks like I'd need two prop stick grenades on top of that.

-A unique-looking helmet and a gas mask. I think the helmet itself is probably the most difficult part for me (being time-constrained and not having much skill when it comes to crafting). I know I can probably find a gas mask at an army surplus store (and I think there are a few guides when it comes to lighting up the eye lens). If I could find a helmet that is shaped similarly to the one in the artwork, maybe I'd be able to work off of it and add the little Umbrella decal and Pickelhaube-like point on the top somehow on my own.

-Red armband with the little umbrella logo. I think this shouldn't be too difficult to procure in one way or another even despite my complete lack of crafting skills.

-Grey/Black/Charcoal gloves. Shouldn't be too hard. I'll probably have to decide on the texture/material/thickness/etc.


Up until now, I've pretty much put together my last two costumes (Phoenix Wright and Roy Mustang) by buying a suit/uniform close to the design and making subtle changes on my own (mostly just buying in the case of Mustang), and it didn't hurt that both get-ups were fairly simple.

I feel like the entire suit part of a Black Egret would essentially be the same as my Phoenix Wright costume's process (buy an appropriately-colored suit/shirt/tie, get it fitted better, etc.), but the concept of putting together the impressive-looking helmet is what sort of intimidates me the most. I've never had an amazing amount of free time (or skill) to do any crafting of my own, but having a tailor friend is what let me get away with putting together Phoenix and Roy. Crafting a helmet from scratch is probably not possible in my situation, but I figured if there was some kind of base model I could work off of, I might be able to think of something.

I'm not looking to be 100% exactly accurate, but would anybody be able to point me in the right direction especially in regards to the helmet/mask and webbing? I guess it doesn't help that this particular "character" isn't very well-known, hahah.
In the meantime I've been looking (without luck) and will keep going.
Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney)
Roy Mustang (FMA)
Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney 5)
Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney 5)
Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney 5)
Black Egret (Skullgirls) *planned*

Same here.

I need a cloak/mantle like this one: http://www.xl-shop.com/xlshop/produc...AYLEIGH_01.jpg

Does anyone know a good site to buy coats like this?
I would try to sew it ... but i'm just not experienced enough to do it.

This is a great cape. I can make it out of faux micro-suede for $200. If you would like it to be distress dyed so it looks worn that's an extra $50. You will not be dissappointed with the quality!!
