Closet cosplay/makeup test.
I’ve been wracking my brain for a good sunday cosplay.
Fem! Casual Captain America maybe?
I’ve got everything for it…which scares me.
Crappy indoor photo quality.
C’est la vie.
Any cosplayers have any tips?
This is my first time ever doing a weapon .-.
I have a couple of suggestions.
First, there is this really cool youtube tutorial, that you could certainly reference.
Another suggestion, is you can do a pepakura. There is a free pepakura of Loki’s scepter floating around. That being said, pepakura takes ages, and it would be harder to mod to make it light up, however it would be more movie accurate (unless you’re like boss at props)
It should be noted that this part of my new costume isn’t finished yet.
I still have to stud the other sleeve cuff, stud the other half of the bottom, and make an attach craftfoam armor plates to the top.
The belt also needs to be redone, but it’s a good temporary placeholder until I figure out what I want to do.
Also, I don’t care if there is such a thing as a Lady Loki. I love the costume design in the avengers, and so I decided to just modify that a bit.
Also, I hate that the clothing on female heroes/villains/etc is so skimpy.
Then again, this jacket is gonna be so hot if I wear it to dragoncon or wherever I go.
I’m considering going to Dragoncon.
My current project.
I decided that I’m going to attend a small convention near the beginning of July, and so (since I’ll be working fulltime during the week starting in a week and a half) I thought I’d get started on this.
Be enlightened with my cosplay hilarity.
I don’t really plan on coplaying Loki, but he is one of my favorite characters from the Avengers (and Thor, and I can’t wait for Thor Dark of World either).
Gonna go to the store and buy resin tomorrow afternoon. Wooooo.
I do have something planned, however, I’m going to keep it to myself for a few more weeks.
I will not be attending AZ this year. It will be my first year missing the con since I was 12. However, I guess that’s part of having a real job. I’ll be at training in Boston to teach Video Game Design to 7-12 year olds this summer.
I’m trying to get out to the pop culture con in Wilmington NC, however my secret project won’t be done by then (May10th).
I was initially planning on going to AWA, however, my arrival date to be in the UK is looking to be September 18th, so that’s probably out.
I’m trying to find one more summer convention to go to if I can. Suggestions? I’m located in Central NC.
