Hey guys! Pardon me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall seeing any thread about SacAnime coming up this coming week. I went to the one back in January and saw quite a bit of TF2 cosplay there. I'm wondering if I'll see any of them again and/or see anyone new?
Can someone make sure to tape the masquerade - I really want to see it.
I'm gonna be there as a RED Medic, with my girlfriend a BLU Spy disguised as a Heavy.
I also might get my 11 year old cousin to dress as Scout and my aunt as Scouts mom. My 9 year old cousin might come too, as a personified BLU Intel.
Scout's Mom reporting in. :]
Medic WIP for EXPCon i know its a bit cutsie and all I AM A FAGGOT HUMP MY RUMP I'm working on a Medigun and a friend is making me an Ubersaw. Missing a few touches but the basic idea. Hair I'm probably putting in a bun for the Con. Also doing Scout's Mom and Spy.
Thank you and no, my friend was going to do Spy and I was going to dress as Ma Just changed it last night though to me as fem sniper and him as scout, we might still do Spy/Ma another day of the convention though. I plan on eventually covering every class so keep an eye out.
If your purpose is simply fanservice, then I would suggest just some soft curls in those lovely locks of yours. You make me wish I had long hair again.
Other than that, it's not half bad. I like it.
fanservice? Far from it, mon ami, but i appreciate the input.
Yes, there is already a D*C thread, but I need to signal boost this HARD.
I just got confirmation from the D*C parade staff, and I have successfully registered a TF2 group for the parade on Saturday morning! If you are attending, have a TF2 costume, and would like to participate, PLEASE let me know! I need a headcount so they know how many to expect from our group. Also if you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, it would help me keep track of the number of people to expect!
Thanks and I hope to see some of you there!
are we still on fir the parade?
uh do you see indication that we wouldn't be
the group is up to about 20 people now
Hi! Myself and a friend (both long time lurkers) would love to join the group, if that's alright! We'll be BLU Medic and BLU Scout. I'll drop you an email as well, just to be sure.
LESS THAN A WEEK TO GO! WOOHOO! Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Sooo, am I the only Virgina Fag here? You know the one who feels earthquakes and gets hurricanes? Nekocon is only 15 minutes away from my house too.. So, anyone else joining?
Hey everyone, i posted this in the cosplay supplies, but now i think about it, it's going to get missed pretty easy,
i've made a pretty accurate tf2 pistol resin kit, that i'd like to pass along to fellow scouts and engineers.
i was thinking about 25 bucks for a resin kit? comes in one part, there is always a little filling and sanding required to get rid of a couple of seamlines,
give it a coat of black bbq primer, and after you've painted it up, a coat of clear rustoleum lacquer spray to protect the paint, and you'll have it pretty much perfect.
hit me up with an email if you'd like one
(they feel awesome to spin on your finger)
Don't forget to paint orange on the tip.
IT LOOKS LIKE TICKET SALES ARE FINALLY UP AND RUNNING! I wasn't going to start this thread until now just in case.
So. Comic-Con 2011. I already know of a few Chanfolk going, but who else plans on coming or at least being in the city around July 21-24, 2011? I'm going 4 days, will be a BLU Scout and other things I haven't decided on yet.
Viking Comic-Con Quest, commence!
SDCC: NO FUN ALLOWED
next time a better place for a large gathering should be outside, on the second floor, above the exhibit hall, its where the SCA guys have fights all the time and where the big star wars gatherings happen, and security will not chase you away like they did this year outside ballroom 20
Yeah, that really sucked, and I apologize to everyone who attended. We were lucky to get off the Group and Team shots though.
But next year, totally behind the convention center.
So, who is going to nerd it up at PAX Prime?
I'll be there in non-TF2 related gear (dress made of magic cards), but I'd be down with having a meetup, or joining in on other shenanigans.
im going there, hoping to cosplay as misty from pokemon, or cole from infamous2
I'm making the soldier cosplay, and I already got everything but the jacket, I've been looking everywhere and there's nothing even similar to it and all is camouflage themed, so is a pain is the ass to dye, so I was wondering if someone made patterns to make the jacket and if you could share them with me, I'd be really glad!
I second this, as I am also having the same problem.
I've been having a bit of trouble finding a good pattern for this as well. Anyone even know of a garment that looks like it?
I work in a fabric store so im gonna take a stab at helping you out:
view B could work if you put elastic in the sleeve cuffs and add epolets.
or try a 2nd hand store for red jackets with a similar colar (you are going to have to pop the colar up most likely) and simply elastic the sleeves if its not already. you can also look for the right shape jacket in white 100% cotton, thsi can be dyed to a bright red (be careful tho sometimes they use polyester thread for topstitching wich will stay white, if u run into this problem as i have before i found it can be easily covered using a red sharpie marker).
alternatively i have seen red dress shirts pass quite nicely with popped colars but if you do do this try and find a nice thick one, cotton would be advisable as well simply because it looks and feels better and it breathes and absorbs so that if you are wearing this cosplay while running around or conventioning u wont overheat and die.
i hope this was helpful somehow ^^;
i have a basic idea on how to make it. but i dont know where to start. i dont know what materials i need. and i dont know where to get the stuff. anyone know what to do?
Already got a pyro thread goin
it's time for props by pepper
this was my first prop ever so it's very off model sob
Yep, I'd ask you to make me a kukri if you could.
Hit enter to soon. I was going to say it looked awsome as well.
I could, but I'm not accepting commissions right now. I have seven props I need to finish, and five of them are overdue oh dear I am very bad at being professional
Though I am thinking of opening an etsy shop and selling the extra props that I make here and there.
sorry for the shitty quality photos. all I have is a phone camera.
