@Zombie: OMG! Yeeeeees! XDDDD What a reason to do him too XDDD
@Full Metal Ninja: Wahey! Added~

All we need to make this more epic is a faaabulous Leeron : P

Ahh, I won't be making progress till after next week once all my exams are over. But as soon as exams are over I'll get started right away on Simon's jacket as I've had the fabric for a good few months now! I have the wig too, but I don't want to cut it just yet as I need it long for an upcoming shoot with a different cosplay xD

Oh no! D: Human Boota would have been cool to have seen.


As for progress I have a wig and I think I have a pair of red shoes somewhere I can butcher for Nia's. :twisted:

Its a shame, Human Boota would have been awesome, but at least everyone will see it one day ^^.

Hows everyones progress going btw??
heres mine... fabrics fabrics and more fabrics, i now have all the fabrics for making Adiane's dress ^^. I am on the look out for a curtain ring and some cord for the bit around her waist.
I have found me some snazaroo (will be fixed with hairspray :) ) for her markings. I havent purchased wig yet , but will get round to that.
I have found some shoes, the style and size is picture perfect!BUT the colour isn't so i have found the perfect colour in Tarrago shoe dye so i think i will be dyeing them ^^.
I have no idea of what to do with her tail , or even if i will have the money to do it. If anyone has any ideas as to how to make it cheaply that would be greatly appreiciated ^^.

Oft, I'm tempted to do Simon for Friday instead, purely because it'd be troublesome to rip off the open chest binding for a female cosplay later in the day on Saturday xD;

I've still done no progress on Simon though. I have all the fabrics for the jacket... Just gotta make it XD

As for Adiane's tail. If you can find polystyrene balls that big, then that'd be perfect! Stick copper tubing through each piece and it'll be able to bend easily as well~ If you can't find polystyrene balls that big, then either find something similar or paper mache something circular and use that... I dunno, I'm trying to think of as many lightweight ways as possible xD;
I'm impressed you're going to make the tail though! Not many Adiane cosplayers do *w*

Yeh i am going to research polystyrene balls, if that fails i am either going for the paper mache, oooorr can make some balls from fabric and stuff them ...PLUSHIE TAIL FTW! XD.

But yeh i am quite determined to make Adiane's tail because as you said not many Adiane cosplayers bother which is a bit upsetting really.

Haha yeah! Her tail plays a big part of the show, without it - Viral would probably be a lot happier without getting whacked around by that tail XDDD

Good luck with it 8D

Ahhh... her tail. My friend being Adiene as well was wondering the same thing. I suggested a plushie tail. >_> I would totally hug it. Dressed as Viral.

..... 8D Make it plushie. DO IT DO IT.

I am VERY tempted to make her tail into a plush mainly due to the fact i suck at prop making XD And the thought of Viral hugging it amuses me :P
