Omg, this is

I don't even

How did you

Holy shit.



I'm not even into WoW (because I know it'd take over my life if I let it) and I'm rendered speechless by these.

Seeing the great work you did makes me more excited about finishing mine now. Yeah, I'm one of those overpopulated Night Elves, but its like you did. I chose to make mine as a snapshot of my main character, rather than just something recognizable. (Granted - I'm working on a more recognizable image too, but it isn't one of my characters, but a NPC...) And since my whole family just HAD to play alliance, I didn't have many choices. I'm 5'11" and wanted something with cosplay potential. At least it is a Druid, so I can play with leathers and nature elements, and not just a clothie. XD

I looked at a lot of costumes on Cosplay.com, and those folks are serious.  There are some amazing costumes on there, and it was hard not to get caught up in a sort of "keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.  I had to pull myself back by reminding myself I had two costumes and only a month to make them and a limited budget.

Don't ever feel you have to compare to those guys. Most of those cosplayers with the countless fancy costumes live with their parents and have few obligations, so they have help and money is not an issue. Which is why they can crank out so many of them, and have a different wig for every day of the month. Those of us who spend most of our time supporting families and earning a living have the ability to make great costumes too, as you proved, and I think that, in the long run, we appreciate them more.

Great work. Congrats.

Will do personal swaps to receive fabric yardages. Also, if you are looking for costume work, I will work in trade or swap. I have an available Singer Pixie, is anyone interested?

I saw your costumes, and they look great!  The photo shoot is really good too.  I saw the closeup of Cloud's shoulders and thought, "Ah, antiquing: the one quick step that makes everything look KICKASS."  And I know exactly how you feel!!!  I think we should both take our costumes to a comicon to enjoy them a bit more  Grin

@ojy : Thanks for the perspective on the excesses of some cosplayers  Cheesy  I have to say, though, that I found a lot of really helpful information and resources on the forums of cosplay.com and some other LARPing sites.  Cosplay.com has some good tips on selecting and styling wigs, and the tusks I found through a lengthy discussion thread on a LARP site.  I'm not ashamed to benefit from the knowledge and experience of people who spend waaaaaay more time thinking about these things than I do.

The one thing I wish I could have found some insight on was a better way to attach the shoulders.  Both of them are designed as separate pieces from the rest of the armor, and are attached by ropes that hook in on the inside of the pauldrons.  Pugool's shoulders each have one rope running from front to back under the opposite shoulder.  Mine have a rope in front and one in back running from left to right, then another rope on each shoulder that goes under my armpits.  They were far and away the hardest parts of the costume to put on.

There is some awesome advice on the cosplay.com forums, I agree. And, the best suggestion I could give for attaching armor pieces is good velcro.
