thank you ^ ^ I'll be sure to check it out, though I'm not sure if I'll be able to use it or not. I'm trying to cosplay as Gaara, but my mom thinks its weird for a girl to dress as a guy, so she's trying to get me to dress as Sakura....
I don't know, she didn't seem to care too much. :/ She just thought it was funny, I think. But now I cosplay guys all the time. Show her photos of girl cosplayers who cosplay guys? On my other account I have some photos of me as Gaara: xyaminogamex.deviantart.com
I was reading your journal, and wigs don't make you sweat really, but shorter ones are more manageable. They don't get tangled.
I tried that, but she still thinks I should dress as Sakura :/ Anyways, thank you for trying to help, and epic cosplays ^ ^
And for some reason everytime I wear a wig it makes me start overheating, but none of them were really cosplay wigs (they were the el-cheapo ones from Wal Mart during Halloween...) And thank you for the advice ^ ^
Cool! Um..as far as making the clothes go did you teach yourself to use a sewing machine (if you used one that is. ) or did someone else teach you?I've been trying to get my mom to show but..........><;
I got a beach ball and a large bouncy ball and taped them together. Then I made a ring around the center with newspaper so it would be strong. It was then paper mached and the plaster wraps where added on. I used a stryofoam ring for the lip and attached it with plaster. The cork was also a stryofoam cone that was cut into shape. The cork was painted brown and attached at the same tim the lib was using plaster. It was sand papered a little where the cork was and then spray painted sand color. Then I painted on the "E" things.
Wow, I didn’t think it would take that long. Well anyway I’m starting it this weekend so I’ll have time to get it done before the convention. I have a few questions before I start though, what did you use for the circles just beach balls? And I’m cosplaying the Kazekage gaara and he doesn’t have the red scarf thing so any ideas as to how I’m going to keep the gourd on my back?
The top was a beach ball and the other was hugebouncy ball I got at Walmart. I have no idea how to attach it as kazekage version. i've ben trying to figure that out myself. Maybe wrap it around your waist and shoulder
