Sports gear continues to be a royal pain in ass. BUT. I took my lunch break and hit up the hobby shop for more model-grade paint, and I've been working long enough to see real results: linky.

Also need to go back to my "cheap" wood filler. I bought name-brand and it's textured. What is this.

Somehow I got roped into doing a Homestuck cosplay with two of my friends. I love Homestuck, but I always promised myself I wouldn't cosplay from it because of all the bad shit it comes with... Oh well, I'll just justify it by doing Terezi's FLARP outfit and using one of my mom's old seeing-eye canes.

Question for you all re: cosplay in swimsuits.

I was looking at doing a few cosplay shots with some friends in/around water, and I'm debating what I should do.

Since I already cosplay Suki, I was thinking that that would be a fun summer cosplay, especially since there already is a beach scene. She has a canon swimsuit, but it's not that recognizeable, as well as strapless-- eeek.

She also has the Fire Nation outfit, which I think would be a lot cooler to make-- but do you think that would transfer well to being a swimsuit? I'm not sure.

Gah, decisions! (And thanks for any help deciding in advance!)

Anyone know how long time it takes for Arda to ship a wig to Europe with the cheapest shipping option? I bought a wig yesterday and I'll need it for a con 18th August.

Blood_Sword, that depends on what shipping you paid for. Arda's info on that is here.

I just volunteered to man a booth at a local Sci-Fi convention for work. They said ."casual dress" followed by "feel free to wear whatever Sci-Fi costume or outfit you'd like."

I get in to the con free, and then get paid to bounce around in costume for the weekend. Awesome.

Then I realized none of my costumes are done to the point of being wearable. So I threw together a nice simple 11th Doctor outfit that I'll wear. Failing that, I'll be a SteamPirate instead, which is cobbled together bits of other outfits.

I think it was the cheapest one.. cost something around 10$.. I will keep my fingers crossed, I really hope I'll get it on time even though the chances seem pretty slim.

Am I being too much of a perfectionist? I have blue contacts that I could wear for my Catherine cosplay, but her eyes are an icy blue and my contacts are a bright blue, from what I can tell XD; So now I am wondering, do I really need to get new contacts, is it necessary? Am I just being insane? (Probably am). I haven't decided yet but it's bugging me haha... Oh man.

There was a topic about the necessity of contact lenses in cosplays. I'll just repeat what I said from there. Wearing contacts would only be necassary IMO if the character had such noticeable eyes that everyone comments on. Other people here opined that most people would rarely notice another cosplayer's eyes to make a lenses.purchase necessary.

So I believe you will fine wih those lenses you have.

Haha, the link for the canon swimsuit redirects straight to a site instead of the image. BUT from your description of the outfit, if the swimsuits bothers you a bit, don't go for it. You might look rather uncomfortable in it. I say go for the Fire Nation outfit. It doesn't really read 'swimsuit', but I think it'll work anyways (like it's some kind of fancy swimsuit, haha!) :3 And definitely, it would be much cooler!

Good luck!

I've officially decided to dress up as my OC from young justice Ace for Halloween..I should probably get started on it now then I guess, since school's starting soon and I won't be able to work on cosplay as much as I want, plus AUSA coming up. I hope it comes out as good as I hope it will.http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&se...unter#/d59a607

Fabric district run while I was down in LA yesterday yielded a bunch of cheap fabric for muslins, but no success on the other things I was vaguely hunting for. Which is good -- I really don't need to spend more money on fabrics I'm not using for a while. >_>;

And my embroidery for Catelyn's cloak is progressing nicely. Now if I could just get to sewing outside of my work breaks, I might be able to work on her dresses too ... *fails*
