By any chance does anyone know what kind of glasses is The Medic wearing? I've found similar ones like Lennon's but they're too large. Any ideas?

Pretty sure they are based on glasses that were common during the 30s-40s, maybe even the glasses issued to the German army in WW2.

If you don't want to make your own (they are flat frames with no lenses) you can get reproductions of these glasses, search for dienst brille, vintage round glasses, German WW2 glasses, etc.

I really just want to think he wasn't in the Wehrmacht, and he was on the opposite side. Just some dude who had terrible eyesight and wore thick glasses and was sort of nasal and nerdy, but murdered a ton of Nazis.

This doesn't help with the cosplay, though.

Anyone going to Ohayocon this year? Also I'm looking for cosplay tips :'3

>>2858 Oh, man that sounds horrible about what your friend did! But thank you, that all really helps! Originally, I was planning on trying to whip up a simple cosplay like Scout, but I got sick and couldn't go out to get any materials anyway. I think once I get better I'll attend the con normally and just enjoy some panels, or maybe use an old cosplay I have lying around. And I'll definitely take you up on that advice and start preparations for next year!

I tend to always try to do things at the last minute because I'm always getting sidetracked with work and other crap, ugh. This time I will focus on it more and try not to half-ass it. I do have my accommodations and everything planned out, however, thank goodness.

That being said, maybe I'll go ahead and ask specific questions for next year since I'm already on here. I really want to crossplay as Medic. I'm genderfluid so I'm fine with just cutting my hair. Should I do that or should I get a wig?

Also, as for his lab coat, should I make it myself? I have absolutely no experience in making such things, I have only made like capes and stuff, so yeah, I'm a noob. Or should I commission/buy one? I have a pretty okay budget, but ugh and I need boots too. And I don't even know where to start on the weapons. I could probably make a bonesaw pretty easily, though. I really don't even know where to begin, haha.

sorry for the spam of questions, you don't have to answer them if you don't want to, I'll just have em up here for whoever to answer if you choose not to

Awww, I've been once and it was really fun! lots of people, though, haha. I really don't know how to make a cosplay either, the most I've ever made was a shirt design or accessories and stuff.

It's only a miracle my parents ever let me start going to cons, they're normally very strict. Now that I'm on my own budget, it's definitely harder to travel. But I wouldn't be afraid to, as long as I have friends I know in real life going with me. Are you afraid to go because you'll be going alone?

Either way, I really hope you can go soon, though! It's such a crazy experience, being around soooo many awesome people. Although, I've never met any of my online friends yet, either, but best of luck to you!!

Very true, it seems I'm always getting wrapped up in finding out how to make a perfect cosplay and then I get so frustrated or I lose so much confidence that it really isn't worth it. So thank you for reminding me about what's really important <3

I agree, I always try my best to be the character, otherwise it's not only not fun for me but it's not fun for people around me, seeing their favorite character being... not in character, heh. I'm pretty good with it though. I do, however, get shy very very easily, so I don't think I'll be attending any contests or skits anytime soon. Perhaps in the future~ For now I'll just roam around and talk to people, haha. Thank you for the advice!

That is a damn fine costume, and I would totally snag it for myself if I didn't already have 80% of the costume.
I really want those kneepads and goggles, hrng

Guess I don't need to wish you luck with selling it, since it has 2 bids already. Hurr.

Look for a GP-5 at a surplus store or on ebay, they very common and come in black. There are a few different sizes, the size chart is below.

What colour is the Red Medic's coat? Cause it looks cream in official stuff but I see a lot of people cosplay it white.
>> No. 2831
A lot probably cosplay it as white because it's easier to get than cream. I'd say it's some kind of off-white, officially, something with a bit of a pinkish tone.
>> No. 2832
>>2831
I think you're right. The color is the same hex code as the RED Team "Waterlogged Labcoat" paint color (it's meant to match). This may also be part of why I see BLU Spy cosplays more often than RED, I've never seen RED Spy's exact suit anywhere.

So who's going.
Will you be cosplaying? If not then why?
Will you be attending the gathering.
Discuss.

Unfortunately, the only con I can go to is NYCC, and I think that's the one con nobody else on the chan lives anywhere nearby.

Would this work for a Miss Pauling cosplay if you have wavy hair? I know next to nothing about hair, so I was wondering what other people thought about using this hairstyle for a Miss Pauling cosplay. I'm having trouble finding a tutorial for hair like Miss Pauling's ;_; Thanks in advance :)
>> No. 2825
I think it looks quite good.

Maybe use a hairnet and put it in a tighter bun, if you worry about it being wavy.
>> No. 2826
That looks fine!

If you're worried about the waviness of your hair:
You got a hair straightener? Or even a blow-drier? Use a little moisturising serum in your hair while it's damp (to protect from heat damage and avoid frizzing), and then use a hair straightener on med-low heat, or brush your hair continuously under gentle heat from a blow-drier, to get most of the kinks out.
>> No. 2827
Thanks for the replies!
I was worried about the wavy hair because in the video, her hair is curly, and I was wondering if the hairstyle would work if your hair isn't curly/stretched like hers.
