The tutorial lists for the materials can be found at the Props forum (there used to be 1 thread, but now there's 3 b/c of so many tuts!), they're all stickied so they're easy to find. I wish you luck ^^!
Yay~!
Thank you soo much~! owo

Since I have a couple friends who are going as Peach and Mario I figured I'd be a perfect fit as Luigi.

How did this thread stay hidden for so long? Well, *shrug* my Rave Link fits in here too. A bit of a new cosplayer here. I wonder if I should ask here about my wig too, since I already did in the Zelda thread.

Hello fellow Smash Brothers!

I have made two Samus suits (Dark and Fusion) and am in the process of finishing up a Brawl Sheik.

Last Tora-con I was in the Human Chess Match (as Fusion Suit Samus) and on the Game side we also had a Sheik, Ganondorf, and Mario (with Ditto transforming into Luigi and a Piplup on the side). A spray-painted yoga ball was actually used as a morph ball in the show when I was conveniently "punted" in that form offstage by my opponent, lol. I posted quite a few pictures others had taken of me with Mario, Luigi, Ganondorf, Shadow and Snake on my profile if you guys want to check them out!

Keep up the good work everyone!

Sentinel: I really like your Fusion suit, props for Fusion cosplay!
Harpy: The Zelda thread will be able to help you out better on choosing colors for Link's hair.

Well most of you have probably seen this already, but I don't think I ever officially posted it? Here's my 90% done Zero suit:

@ Kastumiyo. I actually already have the wig and have been asking over on the Zelda thread about styling it. So far I've been ignored outright. *shrug* Thanks anyway. :3

I did Brawl Sheik for a convention this May and it was quite fun. There's a lot on the costume that I'm either going to change or that I didn't get around to doing in the first place. The bandages were kinda fail. )=

I'm also going to be helping my brother with a Ganondorf cosplay. The guy's almost 6'6, loves the character and has the right features to pull it off. I'm really looking forward to that one.

Katsumiyo: Thank you for the compliment! I recall looking on various forums and the like and found that many of Samus' variant suits were not made as often, which was why my first suits are the Dark and Fusion. The Fusion is definitely colorful and easier to move about in!

Your Zero Suit came out wonderfully! I love it how you brought Pikachu along at the convention you attended. and meeting up with an Ike and Snake must have been fun, too. What I love about Smash cosplays is that there are always bound to be some at a convention and encompass characters from numerous series and games. You got to meet a Master Chief! I have yet to, lol.

Rhazia: Wonderful Sheik! You nailed the poses in your photos and the denim works well texturally! I've been working off of the trophy in Brawl as a reference for my own. I'm close to completion but a major blip in my design has been the lacing. The black cloth I used on the bracers and upper-arm pieces are lined and thick enough to prevent conventional eye-hole punchers from breaking through. If you do not mind my asking, how did you create the holes for your cosplay's lacing? Thank you!

Also, to those with wig experience: I have two wigs I hoped to integrate together to make Sheik's Brawl tresses. One was the perfect color and length- but when braided did not have the right thickness (Sheik's braid is nearly 3-5 inches across in the back!). I found a rapunzel-styled wig that had the correct braid thickness, but it is a tad lighter. Should I try combining the hair of the darker one over the lighter braid or should I find a way to dye the lighter wig? If so, what methods would you suggest? Thank you!

Sentinel150: to make the eyelets, I stabbed my costume with barbeque skewers. No, really. I have these really sharp metal skewers that double as needles for photos. I poked them through the denim then carefully widened the holes with scissors. I'm sure there's a better way to go about it but that was how I dealt with it myself. I ran into the same problem that you did. Making holes in 2 layers of denim isn't the easiest thing to do.

I look forward to seeing your Sheik! It's nice to see the character getting love. =) Your Samus is pretty amazing, too.

Wheeee so much updates lol!!

@Lopapop: I think most suspenders also connect at the back :/. You can always make the straps though so they don't cross at the back; you can either use a good ribbon and sew on the hooks at the end, or make your own strips (almost like bias tape) from a good fabric and do the same.

@Harpy: do you have a pic of your Link wig?? I'm not a super awesome wig stylist ^^;; but I can see if I can help in any way I can .

@Katsu: ooh your Zero Suit looks great !!! I love how neat the designs on the back are !

@Sentinel: I would try lightly dyeing the lighter wig as close as possible to the other one you have, as it has the thickness you want.

Thank you for the suggestion! lol. I had tried scissors, drills, nails and the punches to no avail. We have skewers at home that may work well, and I suppose taking the time to widen the holes is not going to be too laborious. I'll see what I can do! Once again, thank you!

Yep! I was thinking that this would be the best course of action seeing as how every attempt to braid one color over the other has only resulted in them separating out. I'm unfamiliar with dyes, however, and know not what to use on the fake plastic wig hair. Hm, I'll look that up. Thank you!
