So I painted them! HAHA! It took a couple of hours, because of how meticulous everything is, but they look great! There's some touch ups; some paint went where it wasn't supposed to go, and some places (like on the buckles) there isn't quite enough. I also still have to put a sealer on top of everything to secure it from cracking/peeling/coming off...but I'm super proud and I love them so much! It started to rain when I was finishing up, though. That kinda sucks.
Anyone have any black platform gothic boots and or black shorts I could buy or borrow for my Marik costume? Thaanks!
THE HAIR!! IT EXISTS! I was thinking about adding some blonde. I dunno. Herp.
Ayeee, so is coming along niceee, eh?
This is the new eyemakeup I tried; more wings, some blueish, greenish eyeshadow. (Stilld debating over contacts; lots of money to make it so they wont destroy my eyes.)
Those ARE the sonic shoes, but I have not painted them! That is my venture for today. Dun dun duuuun.
It also occurred to me, whist shopping with the lovely Obadiah yesterday, that I could take bouncyballs and make dragon balls.
OH THE FUN I COULD HAVE. If anyone has orange shorts, I can make a DBZ costume :) I have everything else. I wasn't going to have a day three costume, but it's possible :x
So...this is the begining!
The lavennder jacket is in the proccess of creation, but here is another hoodie sweater I have with the jacket chains attached (with safty pins) to get a sense of how it will look. The shorts I bought were far too small, so I have to take those back.
I edited to see what the purple eyes would look like, but I still don't know if contacts are going to be an option. (I don't wear glasses, and therefore I have no prescription; i don't really want to just go buy contacts that could mess up my eyes.)
Also, not a big fan of the wig I bought. Not Mariky enough. Nyerh. I'll keep looking for another one, but that's $20 down the drain.
I made the earrings! i likes them a lot. I also have all the materials to make my millenium rod, but I still need to do the actual contrstuction of it.
ALL OF TEH SONICS.
So many of them.
ALSO HELP ME MAKE DECISIONS POR FAVOR:
Well this is the costume with flesh tights instead of white tights...which looks better?
Going to cut a hole in the middle for the sonic belly, but I have to figure out the most sensible way to do that first O_O I'm probably going to want some new gloves because it's impossible to do anything in those. I was considering fingerless gloves with white painted nails so I can still function and touch things around the convention.
These are edited to have the green eyes, and I'm still debating if buying green contacts is worth it. ('Cause if I do that, I have to do it the right way) OR just having more extreeme eye makeup; the wings that are there, with like some blue and green eyeshadow. Or something. But this is the first sonic specific makeup I tried. Not a big fan of the sparks though, I have to say. Might even try this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-i3bhvj3MU0
This is the hairstyle, I'll just be wearing fade-to-blue weave. So THAT will be exciting.
I still need ears though, now that I think about it. Haven't decided yet how to do that, either. I doubt I could make attractive ones, but where to buy? How to find the right color? AGHRHAH
Currently searching for the next costume's components: Marik from YuGiOh. gugugugugu.
GUUH! The begining of my Sonic costume. I still have to make my sonic shoes; these were just the red ones I had on hand. I also haven't deicded if I want to wear white tights or flesh colored ones. Planning on cutting out a circle in the middle to fill with white mesh for my sonic belly; it'll also match the mesh that Sarah is going to use in her Tails costume.
I have 2 hotel rooms reserved; for $110 if we get two more people that'd be awesome.
