1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Cosplay help and ideas? on: May 24, 2011 10:01:16 AM
Hi! Smiley

Basically, I'm going to an expo this weekend, and I have nothing to cosplay as. I have a few costumes from things I've done before(but not cosplay) which may or may not be suitable. I don't know if any manga/anime characters wear anything similar. I'm sorry, I don't have photos. Sad

First one: It's a bit like a Robin Hood costume. Long, thigh length boots, green medieval-style tunic which has almost triangles cut all the way around? There's also a emerald green cape which is about knee length, a typical Robin Hood hat, and brown leggings.

Second one:
It's an evening dress design, with a purple skirt. Around the skirt there is a kind of sparkly bluey almost fabric. The middle of the skirt is green, and by middle I mean like in many medieval dress designs they have something in the middle. The top is halterneck and purple again.

Third one: I have a musical note dress, which you can see pictures of if you want on the topic I started to show it.  It's white with black musical notes all over it, as well as black straps. I doubt any manga/anime characters wear this, though... Cry This is the only one of the costumes that I actually made myself-I'm a novice in this. The others were made by my Granny for things. Smiley She's awesome.

Fourth one: A long white dress with long, medieval style sleeves(I think). It's basically a white medieval style dress.

Fifth one: A simple medieval style long red/burgandy dress with a brown cord tied around the middle.

Sixth one: This is the last one. I think I've lost most of this one, though.....Sad A white, long sleeved top. Long white (shiny) leggins. A sparkly gold sequiny top to wear over the white one. A slightly longer than waist length white cape with a gold thing around the outside. (Is it called the trim? I know, I don't know anything about costume making...Sad )  And a white hat, which has gold on it as well. A bit like a robin hood/typical costume 'prince' hat.


Almost all of these seem to be something medieval, don't they? Smiley

I also have other dresses, but they're just normal everyday summer dresses....I don't know if any would be at all like a cosplay.

If you read through this and have an idea which involves mixing and matching parts of any costume, please tell me! Smiley  It would be great if I could find something. Smiley

If anyone has any other ideas of a simple cosplay I might be able to make or create before this weekend  (yes, I have left this rather late Smiley ) which don't involve the listed costumes, please comment and tell me! Smiley

Thank you very much for reading this! Smiley

Here are some pictures of a dress I recently made myself. I just thought I would post it in case anyone wanted to look at it.
So, here they are!
