Juvia x Gray cosplay skit~

hello there fellow cosplayers! me and my partner want to enter a contest as juvia and gray, we did the skit, and i tried to record my part and i realized that i sounded like uh.. let's say... crap. The skit's about how the guild has new missions and gray is looking for lucy/natsu and juvia starts stalking gray and bothering him with her " underwear models" mission. And as always, she tries to confess but gray just runs off before she finishes.
Anyway, after we saw how weird i sound we thought about taking clips for the dubbed version of the anime. but they don't really clip together (some scenes that is)
Aaannd here we are, wondering what we should do, record our own voices, look for a voice actor or take clips from the anime? (And about the voice actor, anyone that'd help? xD)

Why don't you ask a friend or family member to help you record some audio for your skit? For my groups Sailor Moon skit, we had one of the members dads do the voice of our Wiseman. xD Just find someone who has a voice that you like and ask. Bribe them with cookies. :>

What carnival said.

It's far easier and less troublesome then needing to voice the right words in the anime dub.

ok uh,.. what i meant by " taking clips out of the anime", i didn't mean to say that we'd be taking different words to make the same exact skit, more like we'd be making a whole new skit

I would suggest avoiding that. It might not sound right if you take a bunch of different voice clips from the show and try to make a whole audio track with it.

once again as carnival said.

Just find someone to do it straight which will be much better plus reducing the need to do mass amounts of edits.

BTW, aren't you the one who posted here before about the DMC3 Lady's dance? You never posted how it went.

Have you ever been to the site "Voice Actor's Alliance"? Try looking it up, it's a place frequented by amateur VAs, who audition and participate in stuff like this and fandubs, for free. You could hold a little audition, and get just the right voices for your skit.
