Ethan Crossplay

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ethan_(game)

Ok, so I'm considering the option of doing an Ethan crossplay as he appeared in the HG/SS remake. It seems simple enough to do, but I'm a bit worried about the details, such as making the Pokegear and adding details to a red hoodie. Any tips/suggestions on what to do?

Found this awesome hat: http://soren7550.deviantart.com/favo...et=72#/d3ibub4

as well as Gen 2 badges!: http://sanshee.com/store/product/gym-badges-gen-2
(I hope that the person that makes the badges makes them out of metal eventually)

Ok, so I've committed to doing Ethan as one of my cosplays for NYCC. So I'm gonna really need help pulling this one together. Just two things I've got on my mind right now:

- how to make the PokeGear
- how to make the hood of his hoodie white (either with fabric paint or cover it with fabric)

If you happen to still be working on this, I made a Pokegear in a somewhat hasty fashion out of foam. (Foam is awesome!)

Basically cut 2 pieces of 1/4" craft foam (closed cell) to form the main body (including the semi-circle) as a top and bottom layer. Then the roundy part on the end I actually used cheap open cell foam (dollar store yoga mat in my case as it's more flimsy) roll until you get the desired thickness, and leave a bit still sticking out as the part that you can glue to the main unit.
Then glued circles on the sides to cap it. One more tiny piece of thin craft foam was rolled into a cone and glued onto the side of the cap to finish off the parts. After that I just painted it up with blue white and yellow - as well as black for the parts that were too difficult to actually cut out - glued a piece of velcro to the bottom and the counterpart to my sleeve cuff and done XD

It is not going to open but it's a decent prop if you have steadier hands than me for cutting and painting. =P
