PostSubject: Got the cosplay itch   Mon Sep 27, 2010 10:35 am

I walked round town on my lunch break today and i was suddenly hit with a cosplay itch. The sudden need to make something totally awesome and cool. I didnt have time to look around for fabric so i brought some new knitting needles and wool to keep me goin for now but still want to sink my teeth into something. The only cosplay idea i have for now is Lilly from Tekken but I wanna save that one for the new as its goin to be expensive. So come one people! Inspire me!!! what shall i make? loli? cosplay? images and stuff to inspire me would be fab!! Very Happy

I am so glad im not the only person who gets these urges, i also Knit to keep myself occupied when im not sewing.

S anyway, it would totally depend on what you want to do really. I also try and narrow things down since i dont really have the cash anymore to make lots of costumes i have to prioritise.
Like my steam punk costume is doubling as my Halloween costume etc
So do you have a budget?
Or you wanting to go all out?

I have started knitting again too! Started last night while watching Terminator 2 >.<

I think i may have to agree with you shadow, theres no characters atm that really leap out at me. I think i just need something, a spark or something that will inspire me into making a character of some kind. Im goin to have to do more general research i think to find a cosplay i want to do, I really am in the mood for cosplay along with making up my own character.

And Jester....Just no! lol

And what exactly is wrong with Ren and Stimpy? They raised me better than any biological parents could (I kid).

Kinda been wanting to make a sorta barbarian-ish character. Inspired by much Borderlands shenanigans.

Skull/animal head dress, torn leather jacket...

If anyone ever comes accross a tonne of cheap purple fur then give it me; I want to cosplay King from Cat Returns. Mrow.

these barbarian-ish and healerish ideas - any particulars there? Original characters and such? I am intrigued. As for myself - i have ideas for a series of new costumes, based predominantly on both industrial, tribal, and gothic traditions, with a load of cool stuff thrown in for fun. chances are, next time i come to a show, you won't see any gold or brass on me - unless i'm selling it.

one idea that keeps sticking in my mind is a full face mask, made from a converted gasmask, painted with skull designs, and with a full 'head' of hair made from varying lengths and thicknesses of chain

I was thinking post apoc ( ohhh noooo) design. Gasmask covering half the face, white/unnaturally coloured eyes from radiation. Animal fur head dress, scarf of a boar or wolf. Biker boots, sword/axe weapon.

i'd be interested in helping out on that - if you wanted. seems to fit with a lot of the things that have been going on in my own mind of late. (not the gas mask thing, but another project) and with this:

Enslaved

that is driving me nuts at the mo
