so im going to start by posting what i've got already. im an avid cosplayer and have quite a few tf2 crafts and cosplays for you gentalmen~ as well as some coming in the near future.
without further delay i shall post one of my favorites~ the HOWAR
Another from the meet the medic shoot.
Okay I think I just heard someone breaking the epic barrier
I am now accepting commissions for these in any colour through my etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/105672743/any-colour-the-anger-tf2-team-fortress-2
Gencon is almost here, I was wondering if anyone was going? I'll be there all 4 days cosplaying as a RED femheavy. You should come chat with me if you see me.
Otakon 2012 anyone?
We've been discussing Valve gatherings on the Cosplay.com forums and are thinking Friday/5PM/4th floor and Saturday/8PM/Indoor Fountains. (Will post an update if this changes.)
I'll be a BLU Medic with Medigun and stethoscope. Hope to see you there.
I, uh...I seem to have inherited Lithe's wife. (lawl) Vihtalaini as Medic's wife. She will be running the shoots and I will be supporting her.
I...I'm a husband now.
Haven't posted in like a year and not cosplaying, but I'll be taking pictures and passing out cookies at one or both shoots. :3
BLU Medic here again. Fun times hanging out and getting to meet you people. You guys are a blast and I hope to see more of you in the future.
Vihtalaini (BLU Medic's wife/shoot organizer) will be posting the pics taken by our photographer at the shoots by around next Monday. I'll repost the link here once it's up.
Bonus facts: I have empirical evidence (mainly in the form of sore muscles) that Medic's Medigun + backpack require a great deal of strength/endurance particularly in the biceps and back/shoulder muscles. Especially so assuming his are made out of metal, rather than wood, plastic, and foam like mine. Fanartists/writers take note.
Well this is a long shot, but is here any Finnish people going to Tracon 2012 at tampere this year and cosplaying as Demoman [RED/BLU] or BLU Pyro? Help needed because of my group cosplay is missing these characters !
Anyone going to AX this year? I know we usually get at least a few people from around here.
The guy that usually runs the Valve shoot doesn't seem to get the idea that a lot of people were really unhappy with not only last year's shoot but the year before. Not to mention the times he's suggested for it aren't really best for me.
Either way, I figured maybe a TF2 only/centric shoot would be nice to have. I was thinking Sunday evening around 6 pm? Anyone else up for getting together then?
That's good, 10 am is so early.
I'm very last minute, but everything is almost complete for my BLU Engineer costume. One of my talented older siblings has made me a Pocket Pyro that I am very excited to show off.
I have Neither Sparky's patches from Etsy. What is the best way to iron on patches?
I apologize for only thinking of coming here just now, but let me make this short.
Yes, last year's gathering was a catastrophe. I am to share in some of that blame. I have apologized to many for this, but my apologies can only go so far.
The "Unofficial" gathering hosted by myself and Pillz is scheduled for Day 2 at 10am at Site 2. This was in order to compromise with someone splitting off their own L4D group, which they are still keeping separate from the Valve gathering. Had I known this, I would not have compromised with them and would have worked with you guys instead.
There are no sanctioned AX gatherings, and the West Hall is to be used or occupied by the X-Games. Supposedly, the games shut down by around 7pm, so I am not sure if your gathering at 6pm may work.
I do not expect a large turnout for the 10am gathering, as there will be no attendee foottraftic and I can smell drama a mile away from the two separate gatherings, but those who can attend please do. We will have have something special in store for this gathering and you may even win prizes by unlocking crates1
Does anyone have a pattern for the Sniper's default vest? I'd appreciate it very much!
I thought I might as well make a thread here.
The Ubersaw is (roughly) 21 inches and the tube can be taken out and filled with blue paper or blue (or red!) glow-sticks surrounded with something like baking paper.
Looking sweet so far!
Can you post pics of the saw glowing?
I made a video ages ago on my hipstr:
dazzle-camouflage.t u m b l r.com/post/3560187967/you-guys-remember-that-ubersaw-i-was-making-i-got
Just remove the spaces.
WHOA Nice hat!! I'll give you 2 keys for it
Setting up shoot times/places right now as I have seen none on any of the forums (Cosplay.com / AN forums). The shoot is for ALL Valve love, not just TF2. Hopefully see ya there to say hello!
Friday: 5pm, Grassy Knoll between the con and the Doubletree (Aka that large grassy area with that log immediately to your right as you walk to the double tree under that covered crosswalk from the main convention center, before you cross the stream)
Saturday: 3pm (Same spot —^ )
May 25th-27th, at the TCC.
The usual Anime North thread a few months early, as always. Who the fuck is going and what the fuck as?
IN A FEW HOURS I WILL BE HARRASSING SOME OF YOU :D
Well, the con's over. I know I had fun. Who made it to the Valve Photoshoots? Also, anyone have any pics of me? I was the BLU Sniper with the Festive Sniper Rifle and photobombed the Spy shoot by running in with the Australian speedo.
Is anyone considering going to Nan Desu Kan in Denver this year? I'm from CO so I'm also planning on attending the New Years event as well when that rolls around.
I'm thinking about cosplaying Spy, but I might go the Demoman route because I have olive skin that's dark enough to declassify me as a "white person." I'm not really fond of either class and would rather dress as Medic, but I'm a bit of a sourpuss and I dislike cosplays that are too unfaithful to the original, even if they're my own cosplays. If I crack and decide on neither I'll probably just cop out and be Pyro.
So my second question is this: should I let the colour of my skin prevent me from cosplaying a character I love, or should I throw the idea of "authenticity" out the window and do what I enjoy? Normally this wouldn't even be a question for me, but I'd feel crushingly hypocritical doing something that drives me up the wall when done by others.
