@crystalamaris: American mens size 7, if I'm saying that right.

...Now that this post is on top of the page, hi. What sort of material would be suggested for making Sky High's hero suit? I'm thinking a heavy sort of cotton, but I'm wondering if it would add to the character more if I used a shinier sort of pleather or something that could be associated more with flying... o.o I'm overthinking this.

Thanks, KnightJeran! =)

About the shoes - since I'm extremely short and needed shoes with heels to not look pathetic next to my Bunny (six inch height difference), but not skinny little stiletto heels, I just bought black shoes that were the right shape and had a nice thick chunky heel, then painted the white parts on. You can get pretty good results by smoothing on a layer of puff paint with a brush (flexible and sticks to leather/pleather well), and using that as a base for a couple layers of craft acrylic (sticks much better to the puff paint than if you apply it directly to the shoe).

So if you can't find the right style shoe in the right size, you can always just grab some standard black dress shoes with whatever attributes you need and customize.

Oh god

so basically I'm doing Ivan and Barnaby at some point. I want Barnaby done by Sakuracon, but I don't know when I'll have Ivan finished by. I also want to do Barnaby's red double-breasted suit, and if I'm really crazy I might end up doing Hero Mode Barnaby someday.

Can't wait to go to the leather store and get the hides for my jacket though, I love working with leather for cosplay. mmmmmmmm red leather jacket

For Kotetsu's shoes, I plan on painting white on black somewhat-manly heels and then adding black leather with the scalloping and holes on top of that to look kinda authentic.

Yay for people going to Sakuracon! That's when I'm hoping to debut Kotetsu, though I'll probably wear him again to Akicon.

xD You're making me want to make Sky High's outfit for Sakura-con and join in on the fun even more! That, and there's a group of Tiger & Bunny cosplayers with most of the cast already in the works~! I think a couple of them were at Aki-con.

...C: No helping it, I'm going to make a pass at pulling of Sky High's hero suit.

Looking at wigs for Keith Goodman, since the helmet will leave me blind, what do you guys think of Arda's hansel wig in a light blonde?

That actually looks really good!

xD Then I guess the next question is, since I'm making the base for the helmet right now, should I just work in a tinted clear section where my eyes are so I can see without taking off the helmet, or should I be literal to the canon and have a solid surface there?

Maybe if you can get a tinted section in yellow, you could do those lines with that. Makes me wonder how Keith does see through that thing...

I think that it's all a digital display for him, just like with Tiger & Bunny's suits, but without any actual 'eyes'. As for those yellow lines... I'm thinking if I did a tinted section, it would be the area in between the two lines, and have it gray, since that's right about eye level.

Hmm... If you do it right, I don't think anyone will really notice.

So... I'm starting on Kotetsu at an interesting point... His PDA. lol. I'm thinking about attempting in using a strip of fabric cut to shape and then stitching proper colored seed beads around it. I found that I have enough green beads, but need to go buy white ones. My main shopping bout will start for Kotetsu on Friday when I'll be hitting all the second-hand stores to get pieces. And then the craft store for other stuff.
For his watch, I plan on getting a normal digital watch like they sell at the Dollar Tree (my work.) and wearing it over a black sweatband. The purple bracelet I'll probably make myself as it doesn't look too difficult (Kaede probably made it for him.. lol)
I already have a pattern for the vest and will need material, but that and the hat will probably come last.
I've been staring at picture after picture of Kotetsu and couldn't help but chuckle that Kotetsu and Barnaby wear their PDAs on opposite wrists. (Kotetsu on his right, Barnaby on his left.)
Okay... I'm obsessed. Gomen...
Further more, I was looking at this wig for him: http://www.fm-anime.com/index.php?ma... ducts_id=2741 Feedback?

That wig would take some styling, but I think it would work for Kotetsu.

And all of your watch/PDA/bracelet ideas sound great~ Though it's probably just my obsession with LED's speaking when I vote that LED's would look really cool... but I don't know how to make a small display like that, so beads would probably look best.

As for Sky High, I've been building his helmet base for the last three days. o.o It's almost done... >.>; Though I made it so I can't cut out an area to see, but it's big enough for a wig, so I'll probably just have it on for photos. I'll post pictures when the base is finished, before I bondo it.
