Cosplay and Conventions!

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 22, 2010, 10:20 AM
(Just making this journal to cover up my last one, so bear with me! lol)

Commission information: kimba616.deviantart.com/journa…

So my Cosplay.com account has been getting a lot of action lately, what with Fanime just passing and me working on lace fronting my new Suki wig. For those of you who don't know it yet, I'm completely re-doing my Fire Nation Suki cosplay for SDCC this year so that it can be as accurate as possible! And since I don't feel like dying/cutting my hair, that means I'm lace fronting a wig. X_x I don't suggest even thinking about doing it unless you have a lot of time/patience/energy.

Besides that, I've been bombarding all of your inboxes with deviations. xD Those dolls are just so much fun to make! I'm also in the process of drawing the designs up on photoshop so I can make them into keychains/cellphone charms. Still trying to decide if I want to do them as simple laminations, or if I want to go all out and do shrinky dinks! What do you guys think?

For those of you who attend Sac Anime, please make sure to spread the word that Artists' Alley has once again been moved(we'll be in one of the rooms past the courtyard near the very bottom), but this time it's to a separate part of the hotel! We wont be getting much traffic because of this change, so please please please try to make your way over to us in September!

Aaand now I need to find some food. <<;

Oh, I remember her from AX! I'll ask her to see, though I don't know if she'd do it since it's so last minute. <<;

I need to learn how to do that! My sister wants to be Sokka and we were gonna add hair to the front of a short wig.

I'm considering making a video tutorial, because I couldn't find any while I was trying to figure everything out. :P

Ahh! That would be so awesome to see! I can't wait til you guys get that done. :] If you go with doing a front lace and have any questions I would be more than happy to help. :D

Huh, I didn't realize you were redoing the whole thing, just the wig o_o Sure it'll come out great though.

My friends and I hit up the artist alley every con so I'll make sure to spread the word for ya.

Yeah. Funny story, actually. The fabric for my costume was actually originally for Sokka's fire nation get up. I was gonna crossplay Sokka. xD So now I'm redoing it so it's color accurate and all sorts of other stuff.

Haha well that works then! Funny, but totally understandable. Honestly when it comes to cosplay it seems generally the best costumes for either guy or girl characters are done by girl cosplayers. There are exceptions of course, but crossplayers seem to nail the look more often :P

Well, at the time, Suki wasn't found yet. Then, preview came out with Suki in it. So the costume was actually made with only blurry screen caps as reference. xD

Yay blurry screen caps! Wooooooh!

*ahem* Well there's no shortage of images now, so that definitely won't be a problem anymore.

You could just pretend your old one is Suki cosplaying as Sokka cosplaying as Suki. That'll either explain the coloration or confuse people....either way really :P
