Since I haven't seen one, the official thread for all things about the animated webseries RWBY, made by RoosterTeeth.

Hop to it, minions!

First off, if anyone is considering cosplaying Pyrrha, who made her epic debut in this week's episode, here is a fantastic wig for it that I found while browsing Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006TM0BDE?psc=1

Obviously as the ponytail on the wig is a clip it can be moved to the back. Also, the sides can be trimmed if you feel they're more than what the character has there.

Ya know, I was thinking of starting this actually, but didn't know where haha. It's not anime, so I wasn't sure lol
Anyway, I'm cosplaying Ruby soon. I already have prices of the dress in mind, and I already have WIP of her scythe up on my costume page for her here:

I figured this would be the best place because it's done in an anime style. Anyway, your scythe WIP looks awesome! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Yea, technically it's not anime OR cartoons so it goes in NEITHER lol They should make a "web series" subforum lol And actually, it's MMO (Miku Miku Dance) style graphics.

Anyway, thank you so much. I was hoping to make one that can fold..But alas, not even possible..I make a mini mock up out of foam board (the boards of foam with paper on both sides) and I made all the pieces that I have in the picture (never made the other side lol) and made it as accurate as possible, then I had it taped with rolled masking tape, and put together into the scythe, and it looks real accurate, then I untaped it and folded it all together the way it shows in the show, and it doesn't fit correctly. Oh well lol
After this I'm hoping to make it out of plastic rather then this crappy cardboard..

Then if my friend likes the series 9so far anyway) he said he will crossplay Blake with me crossplaying Ruby. Now we just need a Weiss and a Yang ^_^

There's a great tutorial for Ruby's scythe on Youtube! It uses kinda fancy machinery but it can be modified to be able to be done with tools anyone has!

I'm currently hashing out exactly what I have for Yang and what all I still need. It's a grueling process. Mostly for my dad's wallet, as he's agreed to let me work for him for money between now and the con, because I have yet to find a retail job and my contract employer doesn't have work for me until next month. The con is at the end of this month.

Really? The only one I saw on there was one where these 2 girls were talking about how they used clear plastic..Which honestly, isn't much different then using cardboard..It's just more sturdy..I already know what to do to make it, I just don't have the money..Or do you mean they have a tutorial on making one that folds? If so, please link me I will be so happy.

Oh that looks fun too. I would love to make her arm things actually move lol Wonder if that's possible.. Maybe have a think in the glove palm that you squeeze and it forces the action..Much like pulling a trigger on a gun..

What con? We have one up here at the end of the month too lol

Ah, kool. Mines Kumoricon in Washington. Well when you make progress you should totally post pix.

EDIT:
Progress on the scythe. I got the box thing that's the berrel glued on and the backing taped on to make sure it was to size.

Violet circle lenses for Yang are being ordered tonight, and I sewed the scarf last night! The wig and yellow bandeau are in my cart on Amazon, just waiting on my dad to approve a transfer based on my behavior and initiative in finding a job and working around the house. And the scythe looks great so far! Keep it up!

WOOT!!
I really wanna make all the props lol I need to get a group of 4 rather then just me and my friend

And thanks I just finished the base of the entire blade (meaning everything but the handle)
Everything's all glued and readdy to get finished.

EDIT:
So, I'm completely confused..What the hell IS Blake's weapon exactly? The trailer of her is way to fast to tell what it even is..Obviously there's a bladed sheath, then she pulls the sheath off and theres a rapier blade inside (which is where the handle goes to, because the sheath has a hole in it to make a handle), and then..It shoots? This is where I get lost..Obviously you can clearly see an area where the trigger would be, which is right under the handle in the ring, but when she whips it around like a kusarigami, the blade seems to fold or something..lol I'm just lost lol

I'm planning to cosplay Weiss at some point :3
I'm mostly just waiting on 1) having someone to motivate me to do it by cosplaying it with me and 2) having the money to get her sword.
I want a cosplay with props, so hey, this's useful >3

If you were up here, You totally could go with us lol I guess oh well though....I think, honestly, Weiss will be the hardest to cosplay..Everything looks hard to make lol

So, I did HELLA research on Blake. Since my friend said he will crossplay her if he likes he series (which I have a good good feeling he will lol), I will be the one making his weapon more then likely..I know this because I charge him less haha

Anyway, as I said, I did a lot of research. I won't be talking about the sheath, just the thinner blade that folds..
Here's what I got:
-First, this pic:
http://s88.photobucket.com/user/Razo...64ddd.png.html
As you can see, It looks like a sword with a hand guard and handle..If you look at the bottom of the pic, there's a thick rectangle (circled in white). This folds out (in this picture, it would be folding down away fron the blade). I will show you this in the next pic. Also note the area circled right above it in the pic (red circle). It's a lighter colored area. This is also a folding point. This part fold in the exact same way/direction that the last one does. Last, notice the part circled in blue (up on the blade itself). This is another fold point. However, it folds the OTHER direction.

-Next see this pic, it shows the direction of the folds:
http://images.wikia.com/rwby/images/9/96/Blake_2.png
It seems when the part in the white circle from the first pic folds out, it forms the actual shape of the gun. It seems that this piece is actually the BERREL of the gun. Then the blade folds down to make it more compact. Here's another pic of it (this is the opposite direction of the others because she is holding it the other way:
http://s235.photobucket.com/user/ust...apon1.png.html

-Finally it makes this:

Went looking in a box of patterns from my grandma for patterns that would work for Yang's jacket and found the perfect jacket base plus a dress with the PERFECT puffy sleeves, so we're gonna make a hybrid out of them. Also found bonus tracing paper. Shoutout to my grandma for giving me this box of old-fashioned patterns!

Oooh, Weiss' design is so gorgeous. My PiC is being the Ruby to my Yang; it'd be super cool if we found ourselves a Weiss and Blake.
