I think I'm most likely going to take a more humanoid Tauren route (Horns, paint on the face done right, tail, hooves..) instead of a suit or mask or something. I feel like being an attention whore. ;D
Lady: Thank you so much for those links!
Suzuka: Haha. Gonna need to get one of those weapon permits just for the horns...
Aer: Ah, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks!
Gotham: Thank you for those ideas too, I'll definitely post pictures!
What I'm looking at doing right now for the hooves is to cut some hoof shapes out of wood, then maybe try to find a way to attach it to my feet while still being comfortable. Or, maybe I could get some sort of a slip that I could slide my shoes into? (Such as having one half of the hoof slip over the right side of my foot, and the other slipping over the left.) I don't know how well that would work, though. I guess I'll just have to see. Then again, this is an idea without REALLY looking a the links that Lady posted.
As for the belt, thank you for the ideas everyone! I'm pretty sure that I'm just going to go with Gotham's idea, as long as it isn't too expensive. It can't be too hard to make plate-shapes out of clay, right? (Now here's the part where I try it and it's really difficult. :P)
Since I'm probably going with face paint, I'm looking at painting most of my face that silver-white-ish color, with maybe some small streaks of that color except darker to symbolize fur. For my nose, I could try to paint the area around my nostrils black to make them seem larger, as well as a lighter silver color to symbolize the actual nose, you know? If anyone has any websites or tips or anything for face painting liek this, that would be really appreciated.
And for the last thing: The robe. What kind of material should I use? I'm looking for something that's thick, but not too thick, and can be sewed down to create that bulging pattern. Not too expensive, either.
Thank you for all your help!
