I just got back from the NorCal gathering! I wore my Madoka costume even though its not quite finished yet. (still needs a bunch of tweaking) I felt like such a giant pink marshmallow haha. I had a few kids run up to me for a photo too. They were so cute~ <3

I'm waiting for people to post photos even though a good number of them might not be out for at least a week. Excited~ >w<

Here are a few pictures from today though! http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2917624/

Thanks for sharing those schematics bhl88 that's exactly what I was looking for.

The one in anime is very boxy so you could built it out or cardbox or plastic sheets.
The concept one is very organic in design and would be best to made out of wood minus the PVC tube for the barrel. The wood riffle I bought as the most similar shape to the concept on. I would need to add another wood segment to the under side to form the loop and thin down the but on the top side.
Though truthfully, I wanna use it as a sword (I'll probably end up using it heavily during cosplay chess [if people know Archer]... or I end up using it for a fight scene with another Mami Tomoe)... so I was thinking if I can make it fiberglass and plastic for the rifle butt (and the body close to the butt) and wood for the ones farthest from the butt [places that would less likely make contact]). Is there another way to harden the wood for moderate to heavy usage?

Lol go for it. Thank you for the link by the way. I can use this in case some asks for my help for that. You could use that woody-finish-sticky-liquid like what carpenters use. Though I'm not sure that'll give off the kind of finish that I want. I don't know. Try screws and bolts for binding as well?

This looks great! I was considering the Chibi for my own Madoka but I wasn't sure which pink to go for until I saw these photos. I really like that dark pink.

Thanks! The pink in the wig I got is like a mix of a bunch of different shades of pink so it looked kind of strange when you look at it really really close up, but its really pretty from slightly farther away. If you want, I can take pictures of the color.

Most of Arda shades are blended.

I got the 025 Light Copper Red and it really was a strange blend or yellow/gold/orange/red wig fiber that gives it it's orange hue.

013 Light Blonde if my favorite blond shade, it too is a blend bright yellow, pale blond and orange wig fiber.

They photograph beautifully because of the blending it however.


I love the hat HareyuNanami.

Agreed, I was thinking of buying a black sweatshirt and then adding the pieces on just like HareyuNanami did for hers.

I love this aspect due to the fact that when I plan on making this it'll be Feb. for Katsucon. I'll be able to stay warm and it's appropriate!

HI *waves* new to this thread...
Recently found this anime and became rather enamored with it.
There were a few characters I considered cosplaying, but then realized I already had most of the fabric and a base wig to kill for a Mami cosplay so promptly went to work.

Wig progress!!

(sorry the color is so poor in these photos. I only have my camera phone, my real camera is mia. The wigs actually the same color blonde as the photo beside it in the gallery actually.)

First time doing a wig style like this from scratch, I was a pretty terrified, but so far I'm really happy with how it's turned out X3 About 85% done, now all the clean up and shaping and etc. to do on the wig and it'll be done.

Can't wait to see more cosplays from this series! I love everyone's that I've seen in this thread so far!

EDIT: Finished the accessories and hat for the wig today o3o
Done wig is (almost) done

hey, are Mami's socks grey or a dull purple?
Me and a friend are cosplaying from it. I'm cosplaying gender bend Mami. She's insistent that Mami has grey socks. they look slightly purple to me. Thoughts?
