Question about contacts ~

Danny would probably be the expert in this xD

Where can I get cheap good ones? 8D

And I got the idea of cheshire, I can wear a purplish- moronish hoodie and sew cat ears and wear a wig and tight black jeans and fancy shoes 8DD

I'll just have to alter the hoodie abit so it looks similar to cheshiiireees~ ~w~

If anyone has ideas on how to create cheshire's costume from Pandora hearts Leme know 8D

@bluna : go for a mio look from the ED "NO, Thank You!"
which my friend went as to smash!
i can lend you my purple hoodie which i made for that look
Spoiler:
 
----

@jazz : true - i have to admit, cosplay IS and expensive hobby =w="
and i like how you're doing it for fun =D
if thats the case.. alter anyway you like.. being in character with casual clothings
i mean.. sure in animes and whatsoever we see them wear the same outfit all times..
but im sure they have times where they wear casual clothings so yeah

Bleach : it will depend on the character ->.. i remember you attempted yoruichi last year for the halloween event with the tights and black top and hair tied up in a high tail.. really, i thought that enough would be in character.

Hetalia : i don't know hetalia so well but since its based on soldier and that, you could try finding casual clothing that looks like it?.. maybe green cargo pants with some boots.. and whatever top should be fine since the coat might be hard to find unless you got one.. for hair.. well, wig it or hairspray otherwise just go with your usual hair and stick to the outfit.. i think that enough will suffice.. its different from what "ordinary" people would wear? XD

Cardcaptor : once again depending on character -> but really, sakura's clothings are a pain to make because they ALWAYS DEFY GRAVITY!.. once again -> find casual clothings to match the outfit.. she has heaps of outfit so im sure there are bound to be some that looks casual.
For the wand -> if you're dedicated enough, then i guess you can make out of clay.. or even make the key necklace out of clay but it'll take abit of time..
i really dont recommend cardcaptor cosplay because its actually hard.. unless you're going for an outfit of hers thats easy.. (lost track of her outfits .. can only imagine the one in the opening)

Negima, Ragnarok, Excel Saga : i don't really know about these

OVERALL just look at their outfits and check how you can mix and match. If you still need help, better if you provide a picture what character and their outfit you want to achieve.

-----

@smiles : CHEAPEST GOOD contact lenses are online. They range from $30+ if you're planning to get really bright ones that stand out. But shipping takes a while so yeah.
If you want to avoid online shopping, you can go city in chinatown near eating world where you go downstairs and they have heaps of asian clothing stores that sell contact lenses. They are the same brand as the online ones so im sure (can't guarantee 100% myself yet since never bought) that they are good. The prices are around $40.00 and these contacts last for 1 year (but i prefer you throw them out after 6-8 months of wearing them).
My local optometrists sell contact lenses for $40.00 - $50.00(or more) which last up to only 3 months. They are different brand BUT i can guarantee that these are good because they've been approved by the optometrist themself. They come in all sorts of colors (almost) and styles (incl. anime ones like red, white).
ALL the contact lenses i mention are non prescribed but you can get them prescribed but i dont recommend it because the prescription could be wrong.
If you're unsure about style and color, just post an image of your character and i could recommend which contacts for you.

for cheshire -> to be honest i think its actually a hard cosplay to do (thats if you're going for an accurate approach).. i can't really help much unless you provide a picture sorry~
because the image of cheshire that i have is... well the costume looks quite insane

Hi Danny 8D

I'm gonna go to my optometrist today and ask him about lenses, and thanks for telling me where I can get them~ 8D I just need normal red ones, Heck I only need it for one eye xD

With Cheshire I can't go for the exact exact approach since, you know. >3>

Annd I'm not gona do the whole huge hand thing, waaay too hard...Or the shoes >o>

Here are some pictures I found o:

@smiles : thats a good idea -> forgot to mention that its good to go to the optometrist and get your eyes checked and fitted to see if ordinary contact lenses will fit.
Just a note that normal optometrist dont sell red contact lenses. hahaha
but if you want - i can buy it from my local optometrist for you. They dont have a prescription but yeah just tell me after you go check. And dw, i only need one alot of my cosplays which is a pain DX

ahh~ alright.. i saw the same pictures hahaha
so you're going for your own design with the look of the character... i think thats a good idea >8D
but yeah.. the scarf that wraps around is insane.. hahaha (though tempted to make cos it looks interesting 8D)
shoes.. yeah.. ive seen shoes like that around but not that point but yknow.. anime exaggerates and all hahaha.. i guess going for the basic look is good :3
if you wanna go for that look..
i'd say :
long black sleeveless top which you can modify the bottom.
the arms i think are pretty easy -> long black gloves.. make the stickes.. and the claws you can probably make out of paper.. yknow "paper claws" (screw it making your hands look big >_>")
black skinnys..
black shoes..
for the scarf.. you'll need ALOT of black fabric.. probably make it a 2 piece..
that is the first piece which circles the body.. and have the top of it sit abit on the shoulder or use elastic to bind onto yourself or clear straps to keep it up.. .. and then attach the second piece which is the back piece.. the thing that hangs.. and add the bells and all..

easier said than done i know XD
but yeah i also wanted to cosplay this one day so i planned it out abit ^_^"

@dannieh - I didn't really like thing I dod last year. I mean...well that's just me. I have a tendency to not like things I do. Besides I'd like to try something different.

I'm probably most inclined to do Bleach 'cause there are so many different characters.

I'm not really fussed. Female would probably preferable because I'm not sure if I have the right body type to pull off a male character, but I'm not opposed to cross-dressing. Of course, short characters wouldn't be an issue either.

Also - nothing too tight fitting. I'm not opposed to miniskirts providing they're not like ridiculously short. And I'm not opposed to low-cut tops, providing you can't see halfway down my chest when I talk to you. So - within reason, basically.

And no really outrageous hairstyles. I don't mind different hair colours. Like, the first person I thought of was Szayel (casual version), mainly 'cause I was watching an AMV about him. I know he has pink hair, but it's not like all over the place (you know, like Kenpachi).

(Actually - if Paddy's Market sells pink wigs and I can get hold of a white coat somewhere, I may be able to pull it off. Sure - I'm not pale like him - but I think he's cool. I mean, seriously - pink has never looked so evil before. Ever.).

But I'll keep my options open 'cause I think it'd be fun.

EDIT: I have been rethinking. (Oh gawd. There she goes again. I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING...). And I think maybe I can do something that won't be detrimental to my pockets. Seriously - I want to have some fun.

But I think ages ago someone mentioned my attempted Yoruichi cosplay for Halloween last year.

And it got me thinking. I might just be able to pull it off again at a reasonable cost.

I won't be able to get any white shoes (shoes are too expensive), I've only got black ones which basically look the same.

I already have the black pants and I have a black top (basically the same one I wore last year - it was actually two tops).

But does anyone know where I could get an orange top like this?
http://files.sharenator.com/yoruichi0zd_Finally_a_cosplay_win-s480x665-34241-535.jpg

Preferably under $20?

I'm also considering the possibility of purple hair spray because I won't be able to afford a wig and I've looked at cheaper ones in my local shopping mall and there aren't any the right colour. At least I don't recall seeing any.

no they give you $100 and then ask for it back the next day, interest is compounded at 4% hourly and if you don't pay them back within a week they cut off your fingers

T-T I need to ask my aunt about the skirt...I hope I get to go to Vickie's house on next weekend- considering her and her mum's birthday is around now.
I still need to figure out how to alter the jacket's collar...is there a way to colour it/cover it and make it all navy-ish? I'll just have to wait till I get the remaining scraps of fabric after it's done. I'll thank Vickie by giving her a good b'day present! (indirect thank you to her mum by making my cousin happy~)

hrmmm
its either we keep the quiz running or push it to the week after..
True about more participants but im sure they would want a gist of what our club screens and at least do...
i guess it depends how long the quiz is (but seeing how you guys are very serious and into it im guessing the whole club session)... i'll make another thread for you guys to discuss
