I'd like to do Jhudora, but I need to get some other costumes taken care of first.
Taelia and the Negg Faerie would be super fun too <3

*wants to keep thread going*

I've decided that I'm officially going to cosplay Illusen this year. I already have some ideas for the wig, but for now, I'm trying to decide what to use for her dress. I'm torn between some crepe satin and a suede material, problem is I can't find green suede. Chances are, I'll wind up going with the crepe since its more budget friendly.

I've been considering doing Illusen myself, and I'm planning to go with the suede. =) Green suede (faux suede, anyway) isn't that difficult to find; here's a few links, hope it helps!

I actually cosplayed Shadow Usul as a 9-year old for Halloween. Of course, back then, I didn't know of "cosplay", but still.

Anyway... though I don't play it a lot, I'm still a Neopets fan. And if I were to cosplay anyone... I'd maybe try Vira. She looks cool.

Kazephyr- Thanks for the links. I really like the first one, but it so much! I wish JoAnn had the right color. Do you think there is any way I could get it in white and dye the material using iDye Poly?

Hmm... I'm not really one to ask when it comes to dye. XD With a Poly dye, I'd hold out some hope, but I don't know how the faux suede's unusual texture would take to it... I've read that dying 100% polyester isn't for a dye novice, though (not sure how experienced you are, just letting you know).

Oh, and keep in mind, that price isn't per yard; it's the price for all three yards. That would probably be enough for the whole costume. ^^

If no, here's another alternative for less; color's a bit different, but still accurate.

You bring up a really good point with the poly dye and the texture. I wound up ordering a sample from the syfabrics place of the cheaper faux-suede, but I'm not sure if I like it yet or not.

Yeah, I've heard that fabrics with even a short pile dye unevenly... Some people use this for effect, like with dyeing velvet, but for Illusen it's just a problem. =(

If you're after a more muted tone, syfabrics also has "Celery Green", but it's a bit too light, I think... But you can also just shop around. I like to plug fabric search terms into Google Shopping; I've found a lot of great fabrics that way. ^_^

I'm actually going to start working on a Brynneth costume soon for a con coming up next year. I'll be making my own sword and armor.

I picked up the material for my Air Faerie dress today! It's not perfect, I couldn't find an exact match to that purplish blue color their dresses are. I can't wait to get started, it's just a simple princess seam dress, so hopefully I'll have some progress to show soon.

Tried making a Zafara suit last winter and totally botched it. I think I'll give it another shot after I finished my current project.

Our Faerie group got together at Afest for a few pictures, which was a lot of fun. link

Has anybody made any progress recently? I'm looking forward to seeing more Neopets costumes!
