Currently the only thing I am actually working on is Vince from the Mighty Boosh. In fact, I've pretty much finished the costume (just one popped seam to re-sew).
Now I'm going to twiddle my thumbs until Ikkicon.
I need to stop making my costumes so far ahead...
Although, Vince is also my Halloween costume, so I needed to get it finished. And then, the only other costumes I had planned for Ikkicon were the Doctor, which has been finished for a long time, Ted from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, which was a closet cosplay essentially.

Currently working hard on Valus from Shadow of the Colossus. Still much to be done and the resin I use for it is so expensive; wish I could get a deal from the company that makes it. Hoping to have it done for Akon. I would like to have it done for Ikkicon, but it looks like I won't have the time or money to make that happen. Can't wait to be done with it and move on to cosplays that are actually fun to make.

Ah, so many good cosplays happening this October and for Ikkicon!

As for myself, I'm working on Austria from Hetalia and am planning to have it done before Halloween. Tonight, I should finish the pattern drafting and template muslin drapping for it. I'm also starting plans on Tyson from Beyblade.

I just finished my Denmark costume, and just in time for International Hetalia Day. I just need to do a few finishing touches on the wig and I'll be set. Other than Denmark I am working on my Chris Redfield cosplay. I'll be cosplaying as him from the Resident Evil 5 video game and I hope to have him done by A-Kon and San Japan, or Anime Matsuri if I end up going to that.

Yaaay, Austria. :D

I want to start on making either a Fancy Mel cosplay (or possibly Ruenis) from Threads of Fate or make a sugar glider kigu. So I can take mah babehs with me in my pouch. XD
Either way I still have to wait another 2 months because I'm not getting my sewing machine until Christmas. ;o; Not that it would really matter seeing as I haven't used a sewing machine in over 6 years.

Right now I'm working on some super secret cosplays to be worn at Oni-Con on Saturday. One of them is a KH cosplay and will be done with my cosplay group, the other is Vocaloid related and will be a two person group done with my buddy Gloria. ^^ I'll be starting work on Death the Kid, and Minnish cap Link soon too.

Maaah-mah, I've got a couple lined up, mainly through a group cosplay. :P One is a super-secret cosplay for Oni-con, another secret for Ikki-con, and next year I'll be hard at work at making Black Star. As of now, my Sasuke cosplay needs to be revamped a little: make a better wrap, belt, and better shoes. I'm considering getting the Sharingan eyes, but dunno for sure.

As far as other cosplays go...I'm still in talks with my cosplay group. :P Because they're amazing at convincing me to do cosplays I would never have done to begin with.

Everyone, your cosplay goals and stuff you got planned makes me feel so happy. It's good to see there are plenty of passionate cosplayers within our San-Japan family.

As for myself, I just finished spending five hours sketching and then drapping muslin for my Austria cosplay. It's going to be tailored so well. Now, I just have to copy the fabric pieces to some butcher paper to finish up my pattern and then I can start cutting some twill and lining material for the actual jacket. This is going so quick that I'm overly excited!

O~O How did I miss this? That wig looks awesome! I'll most likely request a commission because I /really/ need a better wig than what I have now. It's...able to make one cringe. -Pets the fail!wig- XD

10-21-2010, 03:13 AM
Well if you'd like to commission me, just ask. Any specific Denmark style you want? (You can send me your fav pics of Denmark if you'd like.) We'll talk and I'll give ya an estimate of my commission price. I usually just charge you for the wig price and maybe ten to fifthteen bucks more for labor. I'm not a stickler.

Btw, that wig use to look like a Tamaki from Ouran High wig before I re-cute and styled it to its current state.

10-21-2010, 03:26 AM
Could I...could I ask now? xD I'm so horrible at doing anything creative with wigs. I just like to get things done and stuff so when I get the wig, I'll put it in like a protective box somewhere in my room. (Not really, but I have people nagging at me for Denmark pictures but I can't get any without a wig) And yeah. So whenever we can discuss the price, I'd love to. ^^' The standard Denmark style is what I'm looking for, though. ( http://i.animecrazy.net/kieee.jpg )

And seriously? o.o Wow. My wig looks like Denmark with a very bad hair day... A really bad hair day.

That's fine. ^^ It's no rush, really. I'm just going to work a bit more with the wig I have now and see if I can make it look a bit more Denmark-y. I really appreciate it! I don't have anything coming up this year after Hetalia Day so it's no big rush. I was just planning on taking a butt load of pictures once I got a real wig. xD So any time would be fine, really.

-- 10/25/10 (Because I don't wanna double post. xD)
I'm thinking about adding a third cosplay to my list for San Japan and A-Kon, or any other event I happen to go to next year. The only problem is, is that my second cosplay (Chris Redfield) is going to be pretty expensive. I know Resident Evil isn't the most popular thing at a convention, which is the reason why I kinda wanna add a third character to my list. I just don't know who yet. ._.

I would love to make a cosplay for Sho Minamimoto from TWEWY, or anyone from there for that matter, but I have zero sewing skills and their clothes look so complicated >.> plus i never have time for cosplay stuff T_T
I think I could make one tho, I just have no idea where to go to get clothing or whatever that I need to alter...or how to alter it for that matter

if worst comes to worst tho, I always have my kimono for Zetsubou Sensei xP

10-28-2010, 09:28 PM
ok.... for once im going to make my own cosplay WITH a sewing machine. -crosses fingers that it comes out well- my rumble fighter cosplay is basicly going to look like tifas outfit in final fansty advent children mixed with a little bit of greed from fullmetal alchemist (if i could i would make the american alchemist outfit but thats tooooooo much money and toooo much detal unlike the korean alchemist outfit that thing is insane). but with a sleeve on the left arm and a custom made design on the back (thats is IF i can find it) and maybe a a sword or a shield (the sword wont come out untill san japan. the shield is easy to make i just need to find pictures of it. but making 2 of them is going to be extremely hard and is going to be insane.) and also..... IF anybody sees me in a lolita dress please slap me. apperently there is a thing called brolita idk what it is but to me its like guy + girls dress = brolita. and thats about it...... and i have yet to make anything. because i lost all my drawings on how to make everything! ugh! ~.~

if worst comes to worst tho, I always have my kimono for Zetsubou Sensei xPSho's is probably one of the easiest to make out of the group of TWEWY people. (I'm planning on making his too, so I did some research.) There are more patterns out there and easier to alter, than some of the other characters out there, for his coat. I believe I saw his hat at some urban store. (Not Urban outfitters, more of a hip-hop(ish) store.) That or you could probably find a tutoral on how to make it on cosplay.com forums.

My sister and her friend completely made their Beat and Rhyme cosplays from scratch and they had to do A LOT of work. (Especially with figuring out the patterns.)

RedeadDie
11-02-2010, 12:55 PM
Omg...here's my total so far for what I've spent on my materials for Austria.

-$42 Navy Blue Twill
-$18 Satin Blue Lining
-$12 Large Golden Buttons
-$17 Lace Trim/Fabric
-$1 Blue Thread

And the total adds up to $90 Oh cosplay burns such a hole in the pocket. Though, I usually rack up to over $150 on sewing materials, so this is good.

I still need the following on my this list to finish getting all the parts together for my Austria cosplay.

-$20-30 Wig (Already picked it out, just need to order it.)
-$??? Gold trim
-$??? Boots
-$??? Decorations/Alterations for boots
-$2-3 Glasses (Easy to find at the Dollar Store. Just need to get a wire frame and cut them.)

KittyAnne7152
11-02-2010, 05:23 PM
Ha, God, I know. The Doctor has sucked so much of my money. Now that you added yours all up, it made me curious. Let's see. Counting all of the failures and remakes:
First Suit: $20
Wig (before I cut my hair): $30
Converse: $45
Second Suit: $30
First Coat: $32
Sonic Screwdriver: $20
Second Coat: $34
Third Suit: $70
So, that adds up to... gosh. $281. @-@
And that's not counting shipping.

RedeadDie
11-02-2010, 06:43 PM
Geebus! My sisu didn't pay as near as much for her Tenth cosplay.

Oh oh! Just got some more stuff in for my Austria cosplay...
-$32 Boots (They're awesome and easy to alter and sew into. Thank you Rue 21!)
-$3.50 Glasses (Actually bought three altogether for that amount. Trying out which one looks closest to his.)

So now the total for this cosplay is rounded up to $126. Still pretty cheap compared to my usual $150-200. I'll order my wig tonight and get my gold trim a bit later this month,

KittyAnne7152
11-02-2010, 06:44 PM
Ha, as Tampopo said, most of the money went into failures. And I've gotten to a point where my slavish devotion to screen accuracy has taken control of my mind.

RedeadDie
11-02-2010, 07:00 PM
Oh yeah, I know the failures are more costly than the actual cosplay at times. I've gone through three Xemnas wigs until I was happy with the one I have. (Even though I've recently retired the cosplay.) Gone through two Saix wigs I didn't like and trying out a third. Also, a dozen or so Luffy wigs. (Gawd, and I barely wear that cosplay.) Then there was that Final Form Xemnas I ended up trashing cause I wasn't happy with it.

Kk, just got my wig ordered and plus the shipping it is around $35. So my new total is $161. Sounds about right for me. I usually go all out when I make cosplays.

All I need is the trim, which I'll probably get next month.

I have so many things I need to get for Chris' Resident Evil 5 attire. The shirt, straps, belt, pants, fake weapons, the B.S.A.A. emblem patch, ect. ect. ect. There is just so much I need to do for him. I'm not going to bother with a wig for him. I'm just going to get my hair cut like his. All I know is he is going to cost well over $100.

Hahaha! You know what's funny that I forgot to add to my list for my Austria cosplay? His pants! But I figured out I don't have to spend a cent for his pants. I have plenty of khaki twill leftover from an earlier project and I have two patterns for simple pants stashed away. Yay for me hanging onto everything!

Anyways, here's my update pictures for my Austria cosplay everyone...

I'm about to order fabric to make a new suit! This will be the fourth I've made, but miraculously it won't be for the Tenth Doctor!
...unless I decided to take a slight liberty with Phoenix Wright's costume in order to save money and use the suit for both (it's the same shade of blue, the Doctor's blue suit just has red pinstripes).
I'll probably make two separate suits though, just because the cuts are slightly different, etc.

I am also trying to wrap my head around how to make my own rugby shirt for Steve. I'll probably get a light green shirt and paint the dark green stripes onto it. Then I need to find or make myself some khaki pants and find a brown belt.

Then I'll start saving for Ult. I need about $60 to get started with at least the base latex suit. Making my own out of liquid latex. lol, that's the thing about latex costuming, you have to order everything from fetish sites pretty much. Only slightly awkward...
Dunno how I'm going to get the money though. I might start doing commissions.
Err... anyone need a costume? I'm good, I swear!

The hat is gonna be fun to do, hooray for use of wire to make it stand up! =D Hmmm, got my skirt for chibitalia just gotta dye it a darker green and get a light green shirt and then make an apron. I also need to keep an eye out for black blazers. Don't really need it till after Matsuri, but I need a blazer that fits me to use as a base for my Death the Kid cosplay. I have a blazer in my closet......but its huge now that I've lost weight. O.O

Oh man. I've got too much going on for this convention. @ @ This is my checklist as of last week, not including my ninjaHELL! work:

- My Big Sister costume is still only a sketch and some measurements. I'm flat broke, so supplies are basically whatever I can scrounge up right now.
- The resin I need for my Witch claws takes a month to mail, and it's really expensive for its size. That means I'm gonna have to save up for it, which is only gonna make the time crunch that much worse. ><
- I'm absolutely DYING to do either Crimson Viper from Street Fighter or Harley Quinn from Arkham City. I'm kinda torn between the two right now.

Hmmm, let's seee....

Princess Tiana:
-New tiara, though I do like the jimmy-rigged one we made last year
-need a dress bag for the gown and the petticoat; I'm so happy I found a second-hand store that sells them
-Shoes? idk. Small bag for carrying things in? Probably.

Rochelle:
-shirt. How come I could find this dang Depeche Mode shirt everywhere a year ago, now I can only find one for, like, 24 bucks? Ridiculous.
-Weapons. Need to find some REALLY cheap guns that I'm okay with destroying permanently and maybe some melee weapons.
-Health pack. Got a friend who's gonna make me one~

Silent Hill Nurse:
-Uniform. Gotta stop being lazy and order that dang uniform!
-Mask. Gauze... need gauze...
-"Lead Pipe". PVC, awaaaay!

I also need to get my hair extensions, but, like the rest of my props, I'll probably get them the week of.

So far my list consists of making my Jareth and my friend's Sarah cosplays first. All the while working out to fit Kuja's form. A month before San-Japan, I shall start the sewing work on my Kuja cosplay.

After San-Japan, I want to start work again on my King Varian Wrynn cosplay for Blizzcon 2013.

For San Japan I hope to have three cosplays done. An Imperial from Skyrim, Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII (though I might do her alternate Parasite Eve outfit from Dissidia 012), and Rhyme from The World Ends With You.

I want to try out Quorra from Tron: Legacy, Cain from Starfighter, Akihiko Usagi from Junjou Romantica, and Reno from Final Fantasy VII though soooo I might give those a try for Omnicon and San Japan. Maybe the next year for SJ6 or other 2013 cons.
I've got too many on my mind right now. Px

Finding a decent Rainbow Dash wig is a STRUGGLE.

Yeah, I bet that's gonna require a custom wig job of some sort.

In an attempt to support the classics I will be dressing up like Jigen (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/--fBQ5rjy4cg/Tc4IkRv1LFI/AAAAAAAAAmo/AQuFkZILe7w/s1600/Daisuke%2BJigen.jpg) from Lupin the 3rd. However I am perturbed because I know I will not be sporting longer hair, I am considering a wig but I'm not certain of it. I am also considering making a prop rifle since he is on several occasions seen using them from a good ol' fashion hunting rifle (http://www.centerlineofcalhoun.org/images/hunting_rifle.gif), to the PSG-1 (http://world.guns.ru/userfiles/images/sniper/sn14/hk_psg1_l.jpg), to the big momma herself the PTRS-41 Anti-Tank Rifle (http://i751.photobucket.com/albums/xx151/gizmologist1/ieqyo6.jpg). I think I'm capable if I can find the right parts but I have to consider things like "how the hell am I going to carry it around during off-time of food runs".

Of course since I'm doing that I'll have most of the clothes to do older Frank West from Dead Rising 2 (http://www.gamepur.com/files/images/2011/dead-rising-2-off-the-record.jpg). Only this time I'm really getting serious about it. I will be attempting to rebuild my Servbot Mask (http://chenzen.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/image-o-matic.x11.jpg), only better since one will be able to see out of it (though still thinking of making a torture box one later for my own... personal uses e_e). And I will either seriously look into getting an SLR Camera or making a prop one. And as for weapons I will be either settling with making the Spiked Bat (http://ineptguard.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/bat-with-nails-500x168.jpg) or the very popular Defiler (http://images.wikia.com/dead-rising/images/5/5d/Dead_rising_Defiler.png).

And then I will be planning one more get-up but I don't know what yet, part of me wants to redo Heavy Weapons Guy (http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120202021143/teamfortress/images/0/0d/300px-Heavy.png), another wants to do Pyro (http://www.markpascua.com/wp-content/pyro-figurine-1-scaled.jpg), Francis (http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090122190441/left4dead/images/archive/5/58/20100928180023!Francis.jpg), or finally keep my word and do Kuroko (http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080628211418/snk/images/8/80/Kuroko.jpg). So yeah... lots to do and think about. XD

Slowly but surely buying up all the materials needed for myself and my friends Labyrinth cosplays. (Seriously planning on forking outa huge load in materials for us both.) If Kuja backfires a month before the con, I'll make Lulu instead for my first non-crossplay cosplay.

2013 I already have the two for certain cosplays planned out. The first I mentioned before which is King Varian Wrynn (current) from WoW and Finnick from the Hunger Games. Trying to think of another good character to cosplay in 2013. I want at least one more new one.

Mister Hicks
04-05-2012, 02:32 AM
2013 is going to be a pretty good year IF I can pull off all I want this year (which will ensure experience and as such make me a bit more well learned). I am declaring it a sort of "Armor Year" because most of the things I want to work require making pieces of armor such as Frog from Chrono Trigger.

I'm working on Arlene from True Blood, which isn't too hard, just need her uniform shirt and apron with a tray and some True Blood drinks.
Joan from Mad Men is pretty easy too since I already have a lot of office-styled clothing that's very 60's inspired. I just need to make her a clipboard and some files and good to go.

Can I just say that I'm really excited?
I get to make three keyblades! Plus re-do Kneesock's scythes and Scanty and Panty's guns.
I really love making props, probably more than making costumes. Gathering references and research is somewhat tedious, but it still feels really good to be productive for once.
Though a part of me feels like I'm in way over my head, another (bigger) part of me feels like I can pull this off~

I need to finish my coat.
I don't know why I'm torturing myself, honestly, because it's going to be terribly hot and disgusting to wear, but I really want to do it properly instead of the half finished attempt I wore to Ikki.
Also, I don't know if I'm actually going to ever finish this, but I've fallen in love with the band Steam Powered Giraffe, and really want to cosplay as Rabbit.

Damn, slight change of plans on my part. So now I will be working on making a Klokateer get-up for Friday. So now I expect to split up Saturday. The first half I will be dressed as the Orange Knight from Castle Crashers, and then the other half I will be in my Jigen get-up that most will probably see at the masquerade. And then Sunday continues to remain the same as I dress a Frank West. XP

What am I working on right now? Well I'm practicing making a Klokateer hood out of old pillow cases. Once I have it down pat I will make one out of a black pillowcase. :o
