PostSubject: In soviet russia, bunny is you!   Sat Jul 10, 2010 10:11 am

Comrades, I'm planning on cosplaying Boris for Usavich for this years JCC.

Boris is the one on the left with the eye patches ( like my own bunny used to have)

I'll be using face paints to bunnyfy myself, paw gloves and ear on a headband, with holes in the hat so I can take it off and not de-ear myself. I plan on making a spring-based tail so it actually wiggles on its own.

Need help on the weapons though; Thats a Tommy Gun, right? And a glock in the holster?

I tried Irish for the blue camo trousers; they're £22 and I have to get them shipped in. I'm on the look out for cheaper and blue body warmers ( with or without fur, I'll attach myself). I have the boots already.

I'll be making the ushanka as a challenge for myself.

Its a very small picture (working from a mobile) but that doesnLt look like a tommy gun. Looks more like a ww1/2 era soviet machine gun, with the horizontal clip and drilled barrel. Hard to find as a toy, and very expensive to buy as a replica or deactivated. (For the later, looking at £500 easy). Defo not a tommy gun though, as it would have a snub nose and a drum barrel. The pistol might be a glock .22, but I really can't see. It is a russian firearm though, so would be about right. Sorry, wish I could have been more help costume wise, but it sounds cool

Looks like that could be a really cool costume!
Ofc if it's difficult to get hold of that particular gun you could always try for something similar, most people (me for e.g. Razz) probably won't know the difference! Or maybe buy a similar one then adjust it somehow to look like that other?

hmmm, I guess I can make it if I have time. A glock toy will be easy to find though.

uppidy date.

I started cutting out my foam ears. I got the wire to strengthen them to. I think I found my body warmer online, I'm gonna see if there is anything in town in Millets or Blacks first, I think they're having a sale.

Also; Here is a ep off Youtube which I'm using as reference;

I got my blue cargo paints. They're a little stiff though ( hur hur hur) and need a wash.

I got my ears wired to, they don't wobble as much as I wanted but I can pose them.

oh and I'm experimenting with a springy tail that wiggles when I move.

Update.

Just got the body warmer which needs de-stuffing( its very puffy) and getting rid of the stitched indents. Plus a fur collar Smile.

Goddamn, look how messy the floor is in that room.

I've enter the maskerade contest with this so I've got to make it as good as possible.

I'm unpicking the threads on the ribbed bits of the jacket. God, its so fiddly and annoying.

I might use some artistic license and wear a pair of shades, handcuffs and maybe bring one of my plushies I got with me.

Ohhhh okies, I'm sorry to hear that, Alcon is by far my fave con so far, but everyone always has different experiences at cons Smile
You must have MANY pictures taken for us!

I got my fur for the colar and paws. I was in a charity shop ( heaven for cosplay supplies and ideas) and found this reversable ( thought I didn't know at the time) fur body warmer. Its got a natural look to it, darkbrown, almost red in some light, at the root and grey on top. I ripped the other side out which was some nasty waterproof stuff and I'm wearing it round the house impromptu T.C Quist ( A winner is you if you know what thats from) cosplay style.

I'm also whittling away on a pair of custom fitted bunny teeth.

It looks like a dog grooming salon in my house from the amount of fur that came off the coat.

One paw done! a very big fluffy paw at that.

A pic!



I have no idea why but my camera decided to really over expose the picture so the gloves aren't that blue ( they're grey) and I look like I've just haduken'd the thing.

I also got my bunny teeth in.

in need of some opinions;

Should I;


Just spray paint my hair grey ( lol it should be white) that matches the patches around my eyes. My character does wear a hat but I'm keep the it and the ears seperate so I can take the hat off if need be.

Or do I buy this wig http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150382678022&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT then I can use it for other cosplays and hope it gets to me on time.


oh god, two weeks to go lol!

I need to do the hat, and put the decals on the jacket.

I did see a wonderfully silly looking gun in the pound shop, but when I went back it was gone!
