I also added hidden pockets! lol I'm abt working in comfort/convenience
Not to sound dramatic, but pockets can save your life during conventions! I can't think of anywhere I'd put my cellphone otherwise. Also, that gown is absolutely gorgeous!!

So here is a cosplay I'm considering wearing... Natsu from Soul Calibur V... not sure how comfortable it would be though... for comfort's sake, I might end up changing my mind lol

Wow, the detail is impeccable, are those circular additions plastic? I wish I had the ability to sew my own costumes! :)

They are actually handmade leafs made from (don't laugh!) Crayola Air Dry Clay that have been painted and sewn on >_<

Hi All! Well, as of tonight I have 1 costume complete. My other costume (and my husband's) are getting there, but in the mean time here's my rendition of the Other Mother from Coraline by Neil Gaiman.

Thanks! The button eyes are molded plastic, so they actually look like stitched buttons and I can see through the button holes. Not perfectly, it's a little like I forgot to put in a contact lens but it works. Unfortunately I don't have a close up picture to show you at the moment.

Very clever! Clay is fantastic for cosplay. I had my first experience with it trying to make the Omega pendant worn by American McGee's Alice, because I saw it on a cosplay site (And it was flat and plain) for USD60!

BRAVO! I love your dress! It can definitely be worn out on a non-cosplay basis, the pouf at the back is adorable! Did you sew your dress yourself?

Thanks! Yup, it's 100% handmade. The construction was weird because the actual one from the movie has no closures or anything and would actually be impossible to wear... so I had to get creative with it!

I actually have photos of my Nausicaa costume now too. I still have a few details to finish (belt buckle, sword, bandage) but for all intents and purposes it's wearable!

@metalsummer - You make a great Amy Pond! Will you be taking part in The Doctor and Companion Look-a-Likes contest that Alyssa posted here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login ?

@tarrbear - The blood looks awesome. I used red food dye for my Alice cosplay but it's messy as hell and leaves stains on my hands for days. Are you wearing this to the Dexter panel?

@Abunai - I wish I had your sewing skills! The Nausicaa outfit does look a little warm (I reckon anything that covers your head must be) but  FOR THE SAKE OF COSPLAY. :D

I finally completed my #@$#@$#@ wings for Castiel. I ordered batches of turkey, rooster and pigeon feathers and glued them onto a foam/steel frame one by one. Damn near went high on all that glue inhalation.

Here it is, together with the trenchcoat, suit jacket, tie etc. Haven't put on my wig yet, I'm still not sure whether I should do a genderswitch version because there is no way I'm going to look like Misha Collins, being female and the wrong ethnicity and all haha!

Wow, that looks awesome! now I can see why you were worried about bringing the feathers in your luggage!

Keep in mind that it's a bit wide... the wings may get crushed if you go right into the thick of the Con floor.

@Transmute - I was worried about that too, so I batter-tested the wings by walking into doors and smacking them around. They're actually pretty study because of the foam, wood and steel frame, and I stuck each feather individually to ensure that they don't come out easily. The wings come apart and are screwed together in the centre, so I can pack them separately and flat in my luggage, and bend them into shape before wearing. Also bringing spare feathers in glue JUST IN CASE, but I'm not too worried. :)

I think my biggest gripe over my cosplays is mostly fitting into them, and looking the part as much as possible.

Thanks! Luckily, that was how the apron came, but I know what you mean with the red food dye, experimented with it once, the evidence of it lingered for days!

I'm thinking about it, it's incredibly comfortable so sitting in it all day won't be a problem... Hmm, maybe!

And those wings look awesome!
