sorry for making a completely new friend but wow im freaking out cons in like
im being lady medic and i only have yellow latex gloves, wondering if I could maybe spray paint them red and maybe cut off the long end of the other pair of gloves i have to make them longer not sure if this will work but really worried they wont be as long and like bulky looking does anyone have any tips on making these look better????
(ive checked all home depots and auto parts stores in my area these are literally my last option)
Unfortunately, spray paint won't work. You might be able to find you a good latex paint but it wouldn't last you more than a day or two. With Halloween right around the corner some stores and party shops should be carrying costume merch. Have you checked those places? You might be even to find some at a lingerie shop where strippers buy their costumes. In fact, that's where I got mine. Shitty cell phone pic attached.
Your Group Leader Valiax is here again to start up the thread for this year's TF2 gatherings! Hope ya'll are gearing up for this year's con!
This year, we will be holding two themes; Halloween/Meet the Team. Gatherings were discussed last year and this year we will be hosting a Halloween theme on Friday evening @ 7:30 PM in front of the hotel elevators at the Waverly. Show off with Halloween theme'd hats and accessories! You don't have to have something Halloween to be a part of the gathering, these are just optional for the spirit of Scream Fortress!
Saturday's Gathering is Meet the Team, once again hosting at the elevators at the Waverly con hotel at 7:30 PM. We will gather for group photos before moving to the back of Artist Alley (if room permitting) for some video/photo antics!
There has also been talk last year of doing a "TF2 eat out" on either Friday or Saturday, depending on interest and location. If planned, it is going to be a B.Y.O.M (bring your own money), as I will not be paying for others meals . This is optional should the group vote in favor of it.
So, recapping on meet up times:
FRIDAY = 7:30 PM, Front of Elevators of con hotel
SATURDAY = 7:30 PM Front of Elevators of con hotel, then later on back of Artist Alley if room permits.
Can't wait to see you all again, old and new this year!

I had no camera for this AWA.
Would someone be kind enough to post the pictures of the meet ups?
Hey guys, it's Red Scout! (one of them) I had the Red Spycrab and the Sandman.
If anyone is looking for photos from the shoots or just in general I posted up a few on my DA: http://wild-fire-1187.Sparkledog Central.com/
and more will be posted on Brody's Tumblr later this week: http://brodyontheroad.tumblr.com/
However, if you let me know who you were cosplaying as, I may have a photo that I didn't post up. So ask and I'll see if I have any. But please be specific.
Oh for Heaven's sake...
My DA is: http://wild-fire-1187. deviant art .com/
Just remove the spaces.
Also, I can be contacted at Wild_Fire_1187@yahoo.com if you wanna ask about photos.
Once again, Halloween is upon us. This year, I'm planning on doing a Sniper cosplay. I have most of the costume figured out, other than the hat, which I can't seem to find for any less than $80. Does anyone know where I could get one such hat(I think it's called a 'slouch hat'), preferably for an affordable a sane price? (Hats, must you elude me in real life too?)
i hope you have scruff to go with that character
but anyways, find a Goodwill or something similar where they have thousands of different assorted clothing and accessories for a charity price (super inexpensive)
i go there for finding costumes
dont really know how else to kind of get this spreading and since I'm really into Tf2 and will be cosplaying it for this I figure I post it here.
there are some links that correspond to the event, if theres anything wrong with them just reply to this or ask me on tumblr! the links go to my blog, heavys-husbando.

I am also selling this on cosplay.com, but I figured I would post here too... considering it is a tf2-centric cosplay area.
COPY PASTE COMMENCE:
I have had this old, faithful Direct hit Prop for at least a year.
Here's some Photos:
Despite its size it's a very light prop, a little less than 9 pounds, very easy to carry around a con for an extended amount of time. It measures in at 4" 2', 20" wide total, with the longest handle being 9.5".
The prop was built to be on model, here is the original Direct Hit for your reference.
I love it dearly, however, I do not have enough space in my new apartment to keep it, and I rarely go to cons anymore as is. So alas, I must find it a new home.
Considering the expense it cost to make it, and the sentimental value it's costing me to part with it, I will be selling it for $175 + an extra $50 for the hassle of shipping this enormous baby.

I am very interested in buying it! I also live in the DFW area! Lewisville to be exact! Would there be any other site to give you my phone number or something so I don't have to post it here?
Also, I go to work 10-5 today (Sunday) so if I don't catch you in the morning I'll get right back to you as soon as I get home!
So sorry for the late reply, yes you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I can give you my phone number there
It's been sold--- Thank you to my buyer!
Sorry to everyone else!
Is anyone else going? I mean, I know it's a small convention...
I believe you are looking for this post, I have all the meet-up times set out already, no need to make a second thread for AWA.
Okay So I'm beyond late for asking who all is going to be at this years Dragon*Con and if anyone is going to be in their parade. There are a few of us who are going to be in the parade and we were wondering if anyone else wanted in while we could still register for it.
I know the vests/jackets/non-thriftable parts of class costumes can be the hardest parts to figure out, so I though I'd extend some help to anyone who'd like it.
Got questions on anything related to TF2 cosplay construction, from sewing on a patch to making a class vest? Ask your resident seamstress slave! I've made costumes for five out of the nine classes to date, and Medic three times. Whoo fashion degree! Look at where you've got me!
Oh, and I found this little guide, which is really helpful too. It shows all of the basic seam finishes you can do without a merrow machine:
I am currently making a Pyro costume and I was wondering what the best way to sew a jumpsuit would be? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much
For an upcoming con, I'm looking to make a Holy Mackerel for a Scout cosplay. However I'm a bit stumped on how to go about this. Clay, foam, or sewing a plush fish are options but I'd like to hear some other ideas and opinions before persuing something.
I also apologize is this should be in some other thread. I didn't see a prop thread in here anywhere. Thanks!
I was just about to actually
Does anybody have a high res render of the Holy Mackerel? I'm trying to load the model myself but my program is painfully slow. I would be SUPER GRATEFUL!
k so I'm new but want help. Going to cosplay as Scout and need a few tips to make the costume perfect.
An easy place to get the headset?
An easy way to make the scattergun?
Okay: Best bet is to use PVC, wood, lots of wood glue,and some superglue for the Scattergun. I'll see if my roommate kept the link to the tutorial she used to make a prop shotgun. If all else
Pants are easy to get if you've got a sports store near by. Used/new black baseball pants, cleats/running shoes, the cap, and long white socks can all usually be bought there for a reasonable price.
Think there's a tutorial on the board for the headset...not certain, it's the one part of my costume I've yet to make. If all else fails, be lazy and use the head piece that comes with the X-Box...It's not perfect, but a good stop gap for testing things out.
