Good I can do, inexpensive, I can't. The two don't go together all that often.

yeah, i konw how that goes. cosplay can take a lot of money. I would just look around for cheep verson of of what of what you need and try to modify they. thats how i made my Sogeking mask. plus with halloween in just few days you could stop by a costume shop and get some of the things you need there.

A friend of mine from another con provided this check-list of essential stuff to bring if you're cosplaying:

A Basic Sewing Kit:
-scissors
-pins (straight and safety)
-bobbins of thread of every color used for your costume(s)
-needles
-snaps
-hooks and eyes
-fusible web tape (Stitch Witch)
-spare beads and buttons (if your costume contains those)

What if I have props for my costume?
If there are props, be sure to bring with you spray paint, duct tape (or similar strong tape), a hot glue gun, masking tape, and anything else you may have used in the construction of said prop. This list will vary between props.

How about wigs?
Be sure to bring silicone spray (not a necessity, but it is a good detangling aid), a wide tooth comb or pick, Aquanet hairspray, a wig cap to wear under your wig (and to help flatten your own hair under said wig), bobby pins and hair combs.


This is good advice, cosplayers. Be sure to apply it! :D

I'm still up in the air on who'd I want to cosplay.
Germaine and all the squirrels from Neurotically Yours (www.illwillpress.com) but getting the skin cap on is irritating.
Jr. from Xenosaga, but I'd need to swipe the costume back from the person who's borrowing it.
Alita from Battle Angel Last Order, but my body paint doesn't hold up as well as I'd like and contacts are uncomfy.
All my other costumes tend to rely on warm weather, or part of the costume has gotten damaged in some way.
To broke to make something new, not that I'd have the time. Silly comics.

Roy Mustang: You can call me Roy Mustang. Or just Lieutenant Colonel. Hell, you can call me the Flame Alchemist. Whatever you do, remember the pain.

I think several people are planning on going as the seven deadly sins people. (I don't know if that have all of them yet though)

Tintin is awesome! Does he have a Snowy? I think I would be fun to cosplay Tompson and Thompson. Or are you talking about a different one?
