Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I'm going to San Diego Comic Con this summer (so excited) and I'm really interested in cosplaying. I did Zatanna at PAX prime this year and it was a serious blast!
For zatanna, I found all the articles of clothing I needed and just pieced it together without actually making anything. That was all well and good for her outfit and I might wear it again (minus the high heels, that was a really terrible idea) but this year I want to try some new characters! The only problem is I'm not sure I can get away with shopping this time...
I'm thinking of doing Lady Blackhawk and/or evil Mary Marvel
evil Mary Marvel
I would love to try to cosplay these lovely ladies but I don't really know how to sew or how to make a pattern, or even where to start! I've tried to googling for some starting points but all I'm getting are other people's amazing costumes beautifully tailored out of latex!
Should I take an incredible ballsy stab at costume making or throw in the towel? I have a friend who kicks ass at costume design, but she's a busy girl and I couldn't ask her to make it for me. Cosplay is a lot of fun, but I dont want to be shamed at comic con with a bad costume
