So I'm planing to go as Midna [Imp Form] from Twilight Princess and i was hoping i could get some suggestions and recomendations on how i should go about making the costume.
I have done some research and it seems my best bet is to buy a Zentai suit. I know ebay sells them. However, ebay is not always that trust worthy [or so i hear o.o] so, if anyone knows another site or store that carries them i would love to know. If not, and you have purchased body suits from ebay i'm curious what buyer you purchased them from. So i can feel safe with my purchase
(sorry if i seemed paranoid but i'm sure everyone agrees that getting ripped off sucks XD)
After the suit is purchased i saw two possible options to create the pattern of midna's skin. I'm going to buy a white Zentai suit and either use black fabric paint or sew on black fabric. I am leaning more towards fabric paint, because from what i've seen it turns out nicer, but which would you reccomend? Also, if i do decide to use the paint i want it to be able to hold up through out the convention, which means no chipping or smudging please. So it brings me to this question, what brand of fabric paint is reliable and would work best for this type of costume i'm doing?
I also have a quetion about face paint. Same as the costume, i don't want it to be chipping or smudging (it needs to hold up through out the day) as well as not run if i happen to sweat...ew... ._.'.....anyway, so which brand of make-up would you reccomend? What do you think holds up best and would be good for what i'm doing?
Midna's helment. I don't have too many questions on this because i have the basic idea of what to do and i think as i piece it together it will be one of those "learn-as-you-go" type deals. But i am interested in sugestions on how to make the head piece and what you think would be most efficent.
I have another question about her hair piece do you think buying a wig would be my best bet, because i've seen people who have made it out of materials and it looks difficult to me. :P
I appreciate you reading this and i'm looking forward to responses. <3
Please and Thank You
