I started off watching the show but curiosity got the best of me! I mean, having the anime be a surprise each week is fun and all.. but the manga is SO much further along. Next weekend's episode will be at chapter 31 of the manga. At this rate.. they're not going to finish or even come close to reaching some important points in the manga. Honestly, the story has just barely started at this point. It's said that they're only going to do 25 episodes... but is that still what they're doing? Because it's become so popular are they going to do more? Or a second season? Does anyone know? They'll have to do that. I really hope they don't rush to finish it, that would make it awful.. I also don't feel like this is a story you can deviate from because of just how complex everything is and how it's all tied together.

I would really recommend reading the manga.. but.. I would also say, pace yourself. I binge read 48 chapters in three days and then suffered greatly until 49 came out. I was just so used to getting so much of it in one dose.. to 40 or so pages this month just didn't seem like enough lol. So far the anime is pretty much 99.9% accurate to the manga.. although they skipped chapter 18.5.. which bugged me because it was kind of important. Do what you want to do! I'm glad I decided to read the manga because each week I notice something new in the anime that I may have overlooked in the manga. If I were you, I'd read it! It's really good and kept me glued for a long time lol.

Will do! I'm a bit anxious because, although the seller came recommended from a friend, I usually require larger wigs to accommodate my long hair. Should get here sometime next week. I will be all impatience until then.

I love accuracy but I also like artistic liberties that make something better. Do you think people would notice.. or care?
I think you'll be fine. If it will make you feel better about how you look, it would be the better way to go. I doubt anyone will ever even notice, and if they do and have a problem with it, well, they need to stop fussing over something so unimportant. XD Do whatever you'll be happier with.

Saaaaaaaame. Do you know if there's another season scheduled after this one ends? If there's no new episodes after #25, I feel like my only choices will be to either read the manga or risk being way behind the rest of the fandom, because I'm sure everyone else will go and read it. I really don't want to read it though, because like you said, I like the way the anime delivers it SO much! I don't want to know everything that's going to happen when watching future episodes. I like being on the verge of flipping my coffee table. T_T Sigh.

Great, thank you! That's exactly why I'm curious to see how it fits you, haha. I myself have hair that goes down to my tail bone. My actual head is on the small side though, so even with my hair pinned up, I've been able to fit into a Chinese wig (which usually run small) that is as short as Yukio's hair (Ao no Exorcist). But Levi's hair gets soooo short in the back! So I'm really curious. I hope it fits all right!

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Attack-on-Tit...7&_uhb=1#payId So this is the wig I'm getting for Levi. The bangs look a little long, but that could just be because they're on a wig head and not me. xD

I just discovered (read: became far, far too obsessed with) SNK and desperately want to cosplay Eren for AMKE, but I have neither the time nor the money for another complex cosplay right now, so I'm going to thrift-store-dive for his military tribunal outfit. If I get the wig and contacts right and make myself up to look like Levi just kicked ten colors of you-know-what out of me, I should be recognizable...right?

I'm definitely doing a full 3DMG getup when I have more money, though.

Tracking number for Levi wig no longer gives me an error, but it doesn't give me a location either. Haha. Sure.

I love seeing all the outfits, so I'm all for this! I have a suit like what Levi wears in Episode 23 so I might do a shoot in that as well as the uniform. I've seen a Sasha cosplayer in her "village" outfit and Mikasa in her civvies. It's nice to see some variety.

Oh goodness, my Armin wig already arrived! It arrived in my mailbox 8 days after I ordered it - from CHINA! With the free shipping option! Color me impressed. It needs a liiiitttle bit of trimming, but otherwise, it's a great wig. My friend's Eren and Jean wigs both arrived today (from the same ebay store), so we may or may not do a makeup test in the near future. <_<; (We might be a little bit too excited about these costumes.)

Yeah--the one problem with cosplaying SnK is that every character's main costume is almost identical to everyone else's. But it's such a cool-looking costume...

The downside to doing a less recognizable costume is that I feel a lot more pressure to make all the little details of hair, makeup, and props exactly right so people can still identify me. I'm having way too much fun planning out how to make manacles out of plastic chain and craft foam soda can warmers, though.

I couldn't find if this was asked before, I apologize if I'm repeating someone!

What do people think of buying the pants and shirt? I mean... when it comes down to it.. the amount of denim and the zipper and thread and all that would wind up costing as much as a pair of jeans would. It's not that I'm incapable of making my own.. but.. if it's not going to be cheaper.. why go through that whole process when that time could be spent on the jacket, harness, cloak, and 3DMG?

ALSO... thoughts on a different take of the 3DMG? It looks awesome in the show.. but sometimes when you bring something 2D into the real world.. it just doesn't have enough detail. It seems difficult to use the original design and keep it from looking to... boxy.

I saw this the other day: http://zotaku.com/wp-content/uploads...5/13051302.jpg

The design of that 3DMG looks SO cool and it inspired me to do my own take on it.. maybe not THAT complex but I really like the looks of it. If I have the time.. I might want to put that amount of detail into it or something close. Should I go for it?

I think buying pants and shirt would be easier, less time consuming and a lot cheaper. I found my top at a Goodwill for $2 just looking for some pants now.

@xcvi: Unfortunately, we don't have the ability to delete posts, so there's nothing you can do, lol. But don't worry about it.

To answer your questions, I see no problem with buying shirts and pants. As you said, the cost for fabric, buttons, zippers, etc. adds up and it's silly to spend that much time and money when you could easily get it at a thrift store for a few dollars. My friends and I all bought NEW white denim pants so that we could be sure we all matched each other, and spent about $20 each for them. No shame. I won't claim I made the pants, but I'm also not entering into a contest, so who cares?

Regarding the 3DM gear - like with anything, you're free to do what you want! You may get people asking why you designed your gear like you did, but depending on what you do, it's very likely people won't even realize it's not "canon" and will think it just looks cool/well made.
