What makes me good demorasta?
At Animecon 2011
Nemoheavy approves this.
Don't touch doctors pigeon.
So, uh, anyone going to New York Comic Con in October?
Going as RED Scout Friday and Saturday. I went three years ago and I remembered a shitton of TF2 cosplayers, but I don't know if that's the case for NYCC anymore.
By the way does anyone know just how strict the weapons policy for NYCC is? I've never cosplayed with a prop until now, and my Scout bat is a 100% hollow plastic toy bat from Target.
Hey i just added you on steam it starts with ph and my image is of courage we'll talk on the steam chats :D
Since it's a little over one month away, who's coming to FAN:dom Florida? We're only in our second year, but it's going to be awesome! We've got special guest Eric Stuart coming, as well as, Brian Woods and Melfina. We're based out of The University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL, which is where the convention will be held. Unfortunately, pre-reg has passed, but it's $10 at the door for the entire weekend.
We've worked really hard this past year to put together something awesome, even better than last year! So come on down if you want to party (....and if you love me.)!!!

P.S. It's Veterans'Day Weekend. derp.
Okay, so, I looked through the whole Cosplay and Cons board and didn't see a thread for this. Is anyone else here going? With any luck, I should be able to, as well as my roommate, who also plays the game. Dunno if she'll be cosplaying, though; kind of doubt it.
Provided nothing unfortunate happens, I'll be there as a RED Scout. (Speaking of which, I kind of want to get feedback on what I have for the cosplay. Where would be the better place to put that? In this thread or in a new one?)
You should give the location and date for con threads. Oni-Con takes place in Galveston, Texas on Oct 28-30.
Also, wow, their website sucks. (http://www.oni-con.com/) I shouldn't have to click everywhere to find the index page. I thought it was broke until I clicked on the conch shell.
Ah, sorry about that. I'll make sure to do that if I make another convention thread.
And yeah, for a while, I thought the same. I don't really understand why the people in charge of that site would code it that way. A little shell in the lower-right corner isn't exactly an obvious place to click.
It used to be right around the corner from my house but now that it's in Galveston, I'm not sure I can justify the price to go out there and get a room. Especially since most of them are booked now.
But I might make a day trip of it. I don't know if I'll wear any TF2 if I go though.
ANIME NORTH IS IN MAY BUT I'M POSTING THIS IN NOVEMBER
Yes, Canfags (and northern-Americanfags) that's right, this is the official Anime North thread for AN 2011.
It's May 27-29, at the Toronto Congress Center, in Toronto, Ontario.
WHO IS GOING AND WHAT ARE YOUR COSPLAY PLANS?
Also, this is the new thread for the tf2 panel @ Anime North too I guess. Can we get an up to date cast list, if anyone's got one?
OH HO HO
Going as a BLU Demoman!
I've already started on the gun, and I've got the red, white shirt and beanie hat for it too. I'm gonna start making the rest of the clothes soon enough.
I, uh....wait, what? Are you talking about next years? Or are you just really late on the reply?
Maybe you're just The Doctor. Yea, I'm going to go with that one...
It's that time of year again, we have less than a month till the date. Who's going, who's not going, what are you going as, and do you even know what I'm talking about?
let's get some pictures up in hurr
So many people showed up~
AUGUST 25-28 2011.
WHO IS GOING?
my favorite picture (aside from the professional ones you can find in my own personal cosplay thread) taken at FanExpo 2011. It's not great quality but i still like it alot. i lazily edited it a bit to look more like an underwater struggle.
OK, I'm bumping this again. Someone here has to have taken more pics from the con.
Also, if anyone has any pics of me as the Demopan on Sunday, can you please post them, or at least point me in the direction of where I can find them. I can't find a single pic of me from that day.
hey bro, i got you covered.
Going to repost my costumes cause of the crash. I am most known for my props, I take pride in them, but I sew my costumes too. I'll gladly answer any questions to help others. Rock on TF2 costumers!
And if you hadn't seen it plastered across tumbl-r already, here is my finnished tentaspy costume! I have a lot of photos, but I don't want to spam. I'll just post some favs. More pics are available here: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/351710/
There are also one or two small video clips of me in my Otakon mix video (all I got) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pURg-k39kP4&feature=channel_video_title . Also I have a short but epic shot in one of Ackson's videos: (which I still am reeling over being shot/chosen for) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCBkZHkH-T8&feature=player_detailpage#t=162s
This was me trying to sit down in front of the TF2 shoot, I really loved how dynamic/alive the tentacles looked in these stills, not to mention them slowly eating my friends, har har. Photos by Zo and her sister!
great work on the tentaspy. i really like it! (and i dont like most of them)
It's the time again, chan. Who is all going? We better start putting together a time and meeting place. ((Do we want to make a general valve meetup?)) I'll be wearing BLU spy like I usually do.
Also my usual cosplay group and I ((Drill, Citadel, Swoz, Leaux, Faust)) want to be part of the Parade this year and are trying to pull other people together to join us and have a big fat team fortress group walk down Peach Tree st. If you are interested post here. We want to gauge interest before committing a group to the parade.
Captcha: nereds selfish RUDE CAPTCHA, RUDE.
Already posted in the parade thread, but since these two threads were started by different people, thought it couldn't hurt to post here too.
Myself and my best bud would love to join the meetup, if that's alright. We're coming as BLU Medic and BLU Scout. Looking forward to this little meet-n-greet!
Also, oh, captcha. "piesited". Because we all know that dirty little rumor about the cake...
I was there as a female BLU Spy in a totally shit costume.
And I got horribly tongue-tied the second another Spy actually spoke to me.
Well, chan, I shall be heading back to the con today in costume. Anyone else?
I want to have some fake sideburns. But..To be honest, I don't know how to do them very well. Any tips? I've seen plently well done drawn with eyeliner pencil, but I...Don't really understand how to do it. If you have any idea how to, or ahve a tutorial, I'd be really greatful.
I need that five oclock shadow he's got going there too.
when i made my sideburns i had a lot of trouble and very little supplies. i ended up using eyeliner, drawing a rectangle along the jaw and shading it in. then i smudged it so it looked less fake. For my 5 oclock shadow, I rubbed the eyeliner into a dark smudge on my hand, then rubbed where i needed it. It worked alright, but next time, im probably gonna use charcoal.
Charcoal is the god tool of drawn on facial hair. : )
I've only ever done manly stubble with a Ben Nye stage makeup kit, so... my tips are kind of specialized to folks with theatre crap lying around, I guess. (though I know at least dance supply stores often carry small stage makeup kits, and of course as October rolls around you can find cheap non-stage makeup kits in stores)
I got a pretty good effect using a stipple sponge in the brown 'shadow' portion of my palette. Again, might be totally useless advice without stage makeup kit, though some Hallowe'en makeup kits would have what you need, and a light stippling of black would be just as good as a light stippling of brown in the end.
I've never done sideburns, so I'm sorry I can't be of much help there. I'd probably do the same thing but going much heavier, but that's just me and sideburns I've got no experience with.
Thanks you guys! This is reallly helpful. c: I wanbted to do the drawn on ones for sideburns that Xiggeh was talking about, so I'll test that out. :3 I'll be sure to test every single thing you guys posted though, just to see what I like best! Thank you!
