Especially if he has a Bag of Holding for his Sonic Screwdriver.

    This is just me slowly succumbing a bit more to cosplaying, which will inevitably result in me coming one year dressed as the me in my avatar.
    Hope to see you roaming around then! I've been having similar trouble with the hair -- 11th's hair has been a bit of a chore, but definitely worth it! I doubt I'd be able to get the sideburns down for 10 in time either.
    Bit of a coincidence with the bag of holding. I've chosen the exact same bag this year.

    @arwen_doll16_LOTR I've been holding back for a bit, but here's what I've accumulated at this point:

    No hair product in that photo to keep it up, but that will change. Still going in the series 5 tweed, as I last posted.

    Looking good! I hope our paths cross, if we're both the Doctor with Bags of Holding....maybe I regenerate into you?!?

    I failed at costume making this year. I found the perfect fabric for what I wanted to make, but when I went back to get what I needed after double checking the amount of fabric I needed, they didn't have enough left. I tried to find the fabric online, but it was a fabric from earlier in the year and was no longer available. So unless I get some sort of epic inspiration in the next few days, I won't be cosplaying this year. I've been trying to work on something else, but it just isn't coming together right.

    Here is the final piece to my costume. I am a bit worried about it though. I always am with prop weapons. But especially nervous about this cause it is a prop nerf gun and there have been a lot of incidents lately.

    Well, apparently all I had to do was post in the message boards... I now have my costume. ^_^ I was talking to my boyfriend about what I wanted to do, and I had to go clothes shopping anyway. I'm going to be a generic Pokemon trainer. I have a few minor things to get (if I can find what I'm looking for), but other than that it came together easily. I do have a pic, but I still have to upload it off of my phone. I'll post it as soon as I get it uploaded.

    That is sexy. I love the way Nerf guns look when they've been repainted to look a bit more real.

    Does the nerf gun work at all? Like, the trigger's frozen or something?

    Well no pics of a completed costume yet, but I do plan on doing at least one total run-through after everything's done to figure out how it'll go down the morning-of and also to make sure there's no issues. Still finishing up the dress, which turned out to be way harder than you'd think for an "EZ Sew" pattern, but I've got my mom helping so it's still going pretty smoothly, should be done in a day or two. I also need to finish wrapping a plain headband in leftover fabric, I wanted it to match. :3
    I finished my BLU Intelligence briefcase, this one with plenty of help from my dad, but most of it from me.

    There's a few more detail pictures over at scu-tumbls.tumblr.com/post/30159155622/so-this-is-it-i-finally-finished-my-briefcase. I used an actual briefcase when making it so I fully intend to use it as my swag-bag on whichever day I wear the costume, likely the first.

    This was my first-ever prop and really used a lot of knowledge I didn't previously have, so I'm pretty proud of myself for not only finishing it, but also making it look reasonably good. :D

    The nerf doesn't work at all. You can pull the trigger but only cause I left that and its spring in. Everything else that I could gut out, I did. I also took off the part that allows you to cock the gun and I permanently attached another piece from a different nerf gun over where you load clips in. Its whole purpose is to look good now :)

    I am just worried about second glances and being in public with it! My step dad is an ex military cop and he was even saying that he wouldn't take his chance with it being fake if he was on duty. Hence my worry. That thought about how it looks, combined with the horrible events lately has me a little worried about getting in trouble!

    Oh no, I'm no expert, but as I recall from past posts, you may get enforcers stopping you, but that's so obviously a sci-fi gun, that they'll just test the trigger and then you get a label affixed to it, that says it was checked. If you go back a few pages, one of the higher-ups talks about it and what you can expect. I'm sure you'll be fine, and I can't wait to see your costume! I'm gonna feel underdressed with my steampunk getup with all of these great costumes here!

    Basically done with Tali. I may try to darken the visor a bit in Seattle, but this is the best I could do at home, unfortunately. Not everything is on in this picture, it was just a test fitting. I'm fairly pleased, overall.

    Not worried about inside the con. I am only semi worried about outside. In public. Where far too many people are ignorant and cops can be called by those ignorant people. And thanks to certain terrible events lately with shootings some people will be even more on edge and less forgiving of an obvious prop.

    I should go.

    Well its a week before pax and I finally get to start making my costume. Good thing I'm unemployed and have the time! I do have a question though. I'm going to make a ruffled skirt for the costume. From tutorials online, it looks simple enough with some trial and error.

    Here comes the awkward newbie part. I went to Jo Ann's to buy fabric yesterday(too close to closing unfortunately), and realized I'm totally lost on what kind of fabric to get. It needs to be a medium blue. Originally I had thought to get a slightly stretchier material, to fit in with the athletic vibe of the character, but now I don't know if the ruffles will play well with that kind of material.

    Any suggestions on fabrics? I went around touching stuff like a weirdo, and all of it felt stiff and weird.

    Maybe come up with something obnoxious to cover the front of the barrel while not in the con?

    I'm currently planning a D&D Costume and a steampunk one. The latter isn't directly gaming related, but I like steampunk. I don't have any pics in full costume, though.

    I'm also going to a costume cosplay contest right after, might be able to win something for dressing up xD
    What do you think I should wear? I'm not that great at making costumes on my own. Where do you usually go for supplies and makeup?
    I just moved to Seattle and I don't know where to shop....:(

    Costume and display is near seattle/northgate area. And there's also champions party store in downtown by the science center. Both have costumes/makeup. Though display/costume has more extensive and nicer things. As for the costume contest i would make sure that they allow bought costumes. some contests ask that you at least have a costume that you've "made" to some extent. GOOD LUCK~ :D
