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!
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 email@example.com, 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.
