#2, HELL YEAH.
Also, Gin and Tonic is tasty.
Does it have to be ultra amazing quality?
That mask is amazing.
I am neither the Solly nor the Heavy, but I love this picture.
Because I can't get enough of this picture. FAGS you say? Yeah? and what of it? (hurpdurp)
HELMET PARTY HARD
JUST SO YOU GUYS KNOW I posted many of the lost pictures on Cosplay Paheal over time. http://cosplay.paheal.net/post/list/Team_Fortress_2/1
Just skim through there, you might find your lost favorites again.
Attached picture is an example of what's on Cosplay Paheal.
I'll see your tonic and raise you...Srumpy.
For the lulz, testing photoshop...still need to learn how to properly shop a beard though :I
> Hey, someone cosplayed Pyro.
> Aww, Pywo is confused.
> Save image and look elsewhere for five minutes.
> Wait, someone cosplayed /Pyro/?!
Oh hell nah!
((BTW, the Scrumpy looks fucking amazing. If I had that bottle I would totally fill it up with drinks at cons and carry it around like a boss))
No-one here but us Pyros
May I ask where you got your supplies for your costume? (If you're the Pyro in the pic)
I'm actually the Spy in this, but I can vouch for my Pyro's materials - he handmade the Axetinguisher, the flashbangs, and the hat (and the unseen but fucking amazing oxygen tank), and the internet took care of everything else.
Here's another image, for reasons of fucking awesomeness.
Well I'd really love to know where he got that jumpsuit, everytime I search for a red jumpsuit, I either get Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, or fetish sites. >_>
You could try searching for coveralls or utility suits.
Cute pyro bro
acen dump, what? isn't that con 6 months old?
maybe it is, but I would drink to it
things aren't so bad with family and friends
Unless your mom is a tramp. (I love you, Panda)
Spy what are you doing to the dock door, your penis does not go there.
Little sentry was sapped and even lvl 3 cried that day...
my bro brainstem says hi. Also resizing images in paint kills the quality sooo hard on my pictures. my canon weeps.
WE'RE CLIMBING IN YOUR WINDOWS
WE'RE SNATCHING YOUR RED SCOUTS UP...
Go team creeper , Go team creeper, Go team creeper GOOOOO!
I'm gonna punch the shit outta that wall.
Hey, where did you get this?!
That's actually me as the Sniper and my lil' bro as Scout...
I'll post a few things from various stuff.
Lithefider as Medic and me as Scout taken at the beginning of the year.
I named him Butthead. He didn't answer to it though.
Group shot from Ikkicon 2010. The only con you'll ever see with more BLUs than REDs.
I need to make more use of my shamwow.
Anime Expo 2010
Making bacon with the RED Engie at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2010.
And a group shot from AWA on Saturday night. I'm done though I've got a lot more stored away.
Okay, after hours of searching on Google, I still can't find this RED Pyro suit, if anyone can find it for me (or if Juan could ask his Pyro where he got it), I will be eternally grateful.
Pepper why would you post the picture where my dreadlocks are showing.
That is so out of character.
I like this picture.
But soldier and medic macking is not? You so silly
HERE LET ME EBAY THAT FOR YOU
Well, I have a question, then.
If you get individual details on a cosplay wrong on purpose, like, for a budget or because you're cosplaying for fun or to be stupid, that's okay, right? Like, if you don't have the exact bag for Scout or you have a shirt with a design on it for Sniper but you're just cosplaying for fun or to add a little swagger to be cute and gay--like having a girly bag if you're being a female Scout or making fun of him--that's okay, right? I mean, I know it's not okay for a photoshoot, but it's...not considered bad, is it? Especially when it's obvious the changes you're making aren't because you're incompetent?
My Engie in >>80 is incomplete and therefore far from accurate. I don't even have overalls yet. Heck even my Scout could use more accurate pants if not a few other very small things.
It's going to vary person to person on what degree of accuracy or lack there of is acceptable. But from my personal experience at cons themselves, everyone is just happy to see other fans of TF2 and we all hang out and have a blast regardless.
It rubs a lot of the diehards the wrong way but I don't really care. I suppose it's all about what kind of image you want to put out- a casual, an attention whorey female, an accuracy freak who's way too much into the game, etc.
Two opinions are enough to settle my mind.
Thank you, because it had been itching the back of my mind for a while, since my cosplays often have obviously changed details that I try my hardest not to let it seem I'm incompetent when it comes to the character's design. I could honestly care less about diehards, though, because even though they're great in numbers, they're few when it comes to conventions in my state. I was just wondering if overall that was a bad idea, but I'm glad to see it isn't. Thank you.
It depends. If you are going to a convention for fun, of course -- dress up in whatever you please. I would definitely encourage you to dress up when you go to conventions, because it makes the experience that much better. But if you are going for the purpose of being in cosplay, people are going to judge your work on accuracy and craftsmanship. If you attend a photoshoot, then you'd better be prepared to be criticized if you enter the lenses of the photographers. People are going to keep look at that picture of you and pick it apart. In short: if you don't want your cosplay judged, don't put yourself in those types of situations.
where's the like button
this place sucks
All those costumes rock. Quick question- how did the soldier make his belt and bandolier?
I'll ask her to come on here and let you know. I believe it's the green foam that you can buy at craft supply stores and JoAnns, covered in pleather. That way you get depth and width and the look without the weight. :]
Okay, I really hate to sound like a snob or a jerk, but are you sure that's the same one? because the jumpsuit in >>25 and >>32 doesn't look like cotton or polyester, yet the one you link to is Polycotton. (Also, the one in the pics has two chest pockets)
Once again, I apologize if I sound like a snob, or if I sound stubborn, but I really want to be accurate, and the jumpsuit in the pictures looks extremely accurate.
Not OP here, but I'm almost 100% sure they're the same. I looked closely at the reference photos and at the jumpsuit linked. I used the same one (or a very similar one) for my Pyro cosplay and it turned out looking about like that in photos.
For reference, here's a shot of my Pyro with what I believe is the jumpsuit linked in the other post and in the photos. Resemblance?
Unfortunately, it is. The slight shine on my Pyro's suit came from the polyester content of the suit. If it were REALLY accurate, it would be made of pleather or rubber - pic related, the one on the left - but it isn't, and he still looked pretty fab.
And nah, you don't sound like a snob. Bit of a knob, though. herp
Holy balls that's genius. And thanks a lot!
Hrrm, alrighty then.
If anyone has suggestions as to where I could find a good Pyro suit, let me know. D:
Good lord, looking at all this excellence makes me wish my costume was a bit better.
But then I remember that it's my first Con and then I don't feel as bad.
But yes! This was at Halcon, it's first year, so there wasn't a lot of TF2 besides me and my roomies.
It was so much fun.
What are you talking about? I like what I see! Your Equalizer is funny. Also, neat Soldier's Stash.
yo whats up.
i mean, hudda hudda huh
We had a cosplay club photoshoot the other day.
Of the basically two pics I got of myself, this made me smile.
Fuck you Bro-Ohio State University.
I saw your nails, then I wondered why that guy had lady nails. Then I looked at your general facial structure and was like, wait, is she a girl with a beard? Then the thought of a girl shaving her beard made me shiver and I began hoping it was a shop and I read the text. I was rather relieved.
(i.e; damn son you have some serious beard shopping skills.)
Did I ever tell you about the time I was a BLU Scout?
Derping around again, and still trying to learn how to properly shop a fucking beard.
Aaah, the smell of cigarettes, aftershave and a certain french man.
So, it was halloween and...
I'm trying for a scout cosplay this year for Otakon. Wondering where the hell I can get his 'backpack' looking thing?
Also, the headset is going to be a little hard without actually customizing it a bit first.
Otakon doesn't allow live steel, so I'll either get a Sandman lookalike or one of the fake bats and spraypaint it metallic.
Why don't you ask in our fabulous stickied thread?
I found getting one of those fake red plastic bats from the dollar store, and spraying it with silver metallic krylon worked quite well, yet it does flake a bit... but the red shining through kinda makes it look like blood, so it's not that bad.
I just use a Wifflebat taped up like the Sandman. It's not the most accurate, but the yellow matches the Team Fortress 2 color scheme pretty well.
Oh hey, that's me, actually. :D
I left a lot of parts of my costume at home though, so I looked pretty shit. I ended up not wearing it much because of that.
Here's a more recent shot of me from a convention in October.
Damn you medigun, why must you have so many odd parts and joints... Well, at least from here it's a whole bunch of small parts and the handle
Back from this past ACen. Mind the obnoxious photoshop, was originally going to be made into a comic by a friend of mine.
Those proportions my god
People like you give me hope.
The whole thing is wood? How heavy is it?
I just got sock garters for my RED Spy cosplay and they're GORGEOUS. I have to show them off somewhere. I don't care if no one will technically be seeing them. I'm a sucker for authenticity. (That, and c'mon; sock garters are fucking awesome.)
>>546 I've been meaning to buy some myself! Fffff my god they are hot. Are those from Sockdreams? I was going to get suspender clip ones as I am worried the typical garter nubs won't hold all socks...
Lovvvve sock garters. I haven't yet seen a Spy cosplayer showing them off. Lovely!
They are from Sockdreams! I got them as an early Christmas present from a fellow cosplayer friend. They're the nubs and they seem to be holding up the socks just fine. I have yet to wear them for an extended period of time, but they've done well so far!
Spahs-and-their-high-socks - a new meme?
Sweet Pyro lovin'.
I'm the Pyro.
ACen '10 TF2 photoshoot was amazing.
Sexy RED ladies.
oh my god i do not remember doing this. lollin'.
... laughing more at the blu spy's face in the background.
He's totally grooving on it.
Old pic of me as scout xP wore it for Halloween, but never got to wear it to a con or anything :c
If I get to go to a con though I'm gonna take lots of fanservice pics with other classes hopefully c:
My darl' as BLU Spy...goddamn, I'm glad that the jacket is finally sewn and finished, now we just need to finish my RED Engie completely.
Picture taken by me~
You, anon, are great.
I, however, am horribly biased.
ha ha ha ha, Is surprises me that I was there for 40%+ of these pictures. Or at least at their conventions.
Biased towards...? (if I may ask)
Maybe later I'll make a tutorial on how I made da fish, for future milkmans.
I still smile every time I see this picture.
Awesome RED Spy is awesome.
Can you find the Spy?
GTFO my city, lol.
Somebody set up us the bomb.
a small group from a past con
Am I the only one to notice this?
