Cosplay - Being on a budget, and limited cosplay space/time, I decided to make my first cosplay commission. I ordered a full red suit from a basic distributer online, and then outsourced an airbrush artist locally. The man who took the job, the wonderfully talented man behind RCC Creations, did an awesome job on a short deadline. I was extremely pleased with the results, and how well he worked with me.
Wig – I used a 2 ponytail clips, purchased from Arda wigs as the base. I styled them over a modified styrafoam sphere, with a pole stabbed through it (yes, by the end I ended up stabbing the bitch through, because I was having a hard time with it). Trimmed and styled accordingly. The pole was attached to a base, and I wore it with a wig cap to help distrube the weight of the hair, to stand up nice and tall on my head without sagging.
Props – I bought the belt and the guns, but I made the Swords and Sheaths - both with Sintra. The Swords were painted with my normal method, and the sheath was covered with a nice leather like material. I also made a few fun signs that I carried around for yuks.
