there are three cosplays i want to do, but i don't know which one to do

1)the prince of persia from the warrior within
2) stark from bleach
or 3) stark in his released form (looking like a pimp)


You could do the Pimp Stark, as I highly doubt anyone would actually do that. Thats a really good idea !
I need a new signature. -.-

Does anybody know some stores that sell very cheap plastic jewellery/hair things that i could use for decora things? Not charity shops or primark? Preferably around the £2-£5 price range?

And also a wig for Nana from Elfen Lied. :D!

Arrgh! I think i'm going mad!

Does anyone know a place i can order approx 48" WHITE loose extensions for making extra wefts with?
The Silky Straight Kanekalon type is what i'm after.

I know there's "Doctored Locks", but the shipping is ridiculous! I just can't justify paying an amount for shipping thats more than double the price of the items!
"X-tensions" seems to be UK based but sells every colour except white or grey - meh

I did find "I Kick Shins", which is less than Dr Locks for shipping but not amazingly.
If anyone knows any better places please let me know.
I need to get them as soon as poss.

There just doesn't seem to be any UK sites with white available.
I'm tempted to just buy a second wig for shreading ¬_¬ ....along with my sanity.

I know a very good shop for selling dirt cheap crazy jewelry that would be good for decora but its in Essex. Its called Troll. And some toy stores do sell cheap plastic childrens' jewelry which would be good for decora; teddy bear hair clips and such.

That has already been swarmed ;)
EDIT : I just got what you meant XD. Primark sells cheap things, so i already know about it. It also sells jewellery and hairthings for cheap. If you know what i mean :roll:

There's a shop called Quarters (may not be spelt like that...) that sells cheap stuff. I don't know if it's anywhere else other than Liverpool though, so maybe it's kind of pointless saying this. Worth a look though.

Try etsy (the website) and search for decora. They have quite nice things for cheap.

Was wondering if anyone could do a mini-tutorial on how to make a head for a Doom Kitty cosplay.
One that I could breathe in preferably >w>
And with a few pictures explaining? Even drawings would help!
