Con Nooga 2011.
Feb 18th - 20th
Chattanooga Choo Choo in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Just want to know if I'm the only TF2 cosplayer going or not.
I STILL need two people to be my scout and my spy as well as two more for stagehands. Anyone interested? Drop me an email or reply to this.
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner! I would normally jump at the chance to be your Scout, but at this time I honestly don't know if I'll be in town during WonderCon (The weekend of WonderCon is also the last weekend of Spring Break for me, so I might either go home or maybe even on a trip somewhere). If you don't mind, can I be put down as a temporary alt just in case I can go?
That's fine. I'll put you down as an alternative as Scout. :D
Any tips for making the gas canister the Pyro wears on its back? I am stumped.
I bought two 3L bottles of cheap, horrible cider, emptied them into a sink, then cut the bottoms off both, stuck 'em together, and then sprayed 'em silver. The secondary tank was made from a similarly painted bottle of nail polish remover, the yellow was electrical tape, the gauge at the top was an old-timey thermometer, and the stripes were just slightly darker spraypaint.
OP here, thanks a ton mate! You're the man.
No, son. I am the Juan. *dusts off shoulders*
Figured I'd go ahead and start a new thread for this con. It's starting to get a little closer now.
I recall there being talk of a possible panel? Anyone started the submission process? Also, meet-up etc...?
I'll be there with Spy, I'm hoping to have a RED intel case done in time too.
Dude that was so me. I said I didn't have a name because I thought you meant on here, and I -DO- but I'm barely on here unless it's for Ohayocon or Anime North and then it's a post or something else minuscule.
You were pretty cool, too, btw, even if you weren't in Scout it was so obvious who you were and that was pretty badass as it was. Too bad it didn't work out for the costumes though...
Yeah I went in to the weekend really sick and on Tuesday I was debating between not even cosplaying at all. I ended up spending probably 5 hours in the hotel room on Friday just sitting in bed watching House/NCIS/CSI on USA Network, so the amount of cosplaying and being at the actual convention that I did was very minimal.
My rationale was that I wear Scout all the fucking time too, and I might as well save it for ACen with the possibility of my bro spork coming to that one.
Scout takes a lot of energy, because I'm That Annoying Asshole, and I just didn't have it that weekend.
Pfft you seemed pretty happy peppy whenever I saw you, but maybe it was the adrenaline. <3
Everyone I stayed with and came in contact with over the weekend got sick, too, including myself, so just be glad yours is done with...as I'm still suffering from Monday. Ugh.
Hey, Newfag here. I'm wanting to do my first Engineer cosplay for MetroCon this year. Any advice/help/ideas?
Any help is appreciated, thanks! C:
Pic slightly related.
I was thinking that, but wasn't entirely sure. You might be able to find a toy wrench at a store. I know people have made them too. But I'm not exactly the best person to ask about making items. Busted PC is an excellent prop maker, though. I can always ask him what would work best.
Also, I derped and forgot to mention the goggles. Home Depot, Lowes, hardware stores like that should have welding goggles.
Oddly enough I'm having the hardest time finding a reasonably priced pair of overalls. Everywhere I look online they seem to cost anywhere upwards of $40.
Most of the stores you mention have started carrying welding goggles of the single-rectangular-lens variety. Last year I had a hell of a time finding my Engie goggles. Ended up finding a pair for less than $10 shipped through Amazon. (Like this: http://www.amazon.com/Welding-Cup-Goggles-5-Shade/dp/B002DLYR8A/ ) Search for "brazing goggles" if that pair doesn't suit. You don't want the flip-up front kind - those are more Dr Horrible, and are far too big for Engineer.
Anyone up for a little PLR?
This... This is just awesome.
this looks absolutely amazing
are those birds on an invisible bookshelf?
My latest prop/costuming goal is to build Sasha. Before I can delve too deeply into any project, I scour reference pictures and try to figure out exactly what I need, and where to prioritize and how to build the final product. Frustratingly enough, I'm having a hell of a time finding reference pictures for the back of Sasha and the side closest to Heavy.
My question is this: where do all the cosplayers of TF2chan go to find their reference pictures?
The model viewer in the SDK. You view the in game model from any angle. It's almost an embarrassment of riches.
Also, I'm just going to leave this here:
Thank you so much! I've never heard of Source SDK, and now I have all the reference pictures I could possibly want. Also, thank you for the video link. That isn't how I'm (currently) planning on getting the barrel to spin, but it is definitely a good place to start and expand on ideas with.
I can't take credit for finding the video; someone else originally posted it, and I remembered it because I thought it was awesome.
Polite sage for not really contributing.
Well, AkiCon was fun.
costume swap with kibs
I think I need to build myself a hat wall now. All I have now is a hat shelf.
Sac-anime is almost a month away, anyone coming representing TF2?
Oh God. Thank you all for posting these pictures, I didn't have time to take many of my own. That last one especially got me good!
I'll see if I can get some of the BLU team to post their pictures, they have some nice ones.
Quite possibly my favorite part of the whole con.
OGOD This is brilliant! Oh wow, I didn't even think about doing this or anything omgggg We need to try this next year! Everyone should fight over the "point" hahahaha!
So i WAS gonna do a leather pants/TF2 skit with two of my friend's but they're flaking out. I live in the East Bay area and if you live near this area (Berkeley/Oakland/Albany/San Francisco/San Jose/Fremont) please please PLEASE drop a message if you are interested. I REALLY wanna do this skit. It seems like it'll be such a good one, and the parts that i need are Bakura/Scout#2 and Yami/Spy. Help me Obi Wan Kenobi you're my only hope! D:
Damn them. I'll ask. Dx
When's wondercon? I may need a handler but first i need others for those roles. I'm short on money and fanime is the only one i can save up for...
Wondercon is April 1-3 at the Moscone Center (South) in the city. http://www.comic-con.org/wc/ It's pretty inexpensive if you just go one day, and it's not far from the Powell BART station. You can totally see everything in one day, too, I did it last year. Also, if you volunteer, you can get reduced admission, so always something to look into.
While it looks promising, the time limit for the amount of people im using is a pretty short one :/
As awesome as my idea is I'll most likely shorten it to an actual skit where the scouts steal the leather pants, with dialogue and props. I will most likely need a good two or three stage hands to help.
