A Question About Binding [Jun. 2nd, 2010|11:53 pm]
Kingdom Hearts Cosplay

[mood |gloomygloomy]

Hey everyone!

Thank you to those of you who commented on my pictures post. :) I'm glad you enjoyed my Sora cosplay!

A lot of you mentioned that I should do something called 'binding' to make myself flatter / have more of a male build. (Which cracks me up, I'm only a size B cup, haha.) I'm going to a con this weekend, again as Sora, so I really don't have time to order anything online like the compression shirt someone linked to me. That would be great to have in the future, but I need something for Friday. The other issue is that I have like, absolutely no money. So I really can't go out and buy something.

So my question is, how might one bind using things that can be commonly found? I have some spanx, but it only goes to my mid-waist. I was already wearing a sports bra. I don't really have any tight tank tops or anything. So what would you all suggest I do?

So, I Actually Did It! And Here Are The Results... [Jun. 1st, 2010|12:00 am]

[mood |ditzyditzy]

Hi all!

Some of you might remember me as the girl asking, about a month or so back, whether or not I should cosplay as Sora. I was very apprehensive about it because I'm overweight, and I'd never really cosplayed before. However, thanks to a handful of you guys, you convinced me to go ahead and do it!

Just this last weekend (Memorial Day weekend for us US folks) was Phoenix Comicon, which is the convention I attended. And yes, I dressed as Sora from KH2 (original form). And let me tell you, I had an absolute BLAST! It was my first-ever cosplay, first-ever convention, and at first I was really self-conscious and nervous, but I wasn't there more than five minutes when someone wanted my picture. I got my photo taken quite a lot, and I was really happy to do so. People ran up to me and asked me questions, and even one girl tackled me and squeezed me around the middle screaming, "SOOOOORRRAAAAA!" at the top of her lungs. It was epic, and it truly made me feel like a million bucks. I'm someone who has like, no ego whatsoever, and it was so cool to feel great.

I even met a few other KH cosplayers, though they were in big groups and kind of were doing their own things and didn't really want to chat, haha. In the future, if I go to cons, I need to be more assertive, but I was so nervous. But it truly was a great load of fun, and I'm really, really glad I went.

So anyway, I have a handful of photos to show you guys, if you'd like to see! Again, please no flames. :)

Behold, SORA!Collapse )

In Need Of Your Opinion... [May. 5th, 2010|12:39 am]
Kingdom Hearts Cosplay

[mood |melancholymelancholy]

Hello all!

I am a newbie to this community. My name is Diane, and I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan! I don't know everything about it, but I play the games and love them, love the characters, love the story, etc. Like many, I am particularly a Sora fan.

Now, I've never cosplayed before in my life, unless you count some Sailor Moon Halloween costumes when I was a kid. But I've always wanted to cosplay, and for years... I've wanted to cosplay as Sora.

Yeah, I know. Yet another person wanting to be Sora, I know.

But, I reaaalllllly want to. Did I mention I've wanted to dress as Sora for years?

But here's the thing, the thing that's holding me back, and making me twiddle my thumbs and shift my eyes around. And I need your honest opinion.

I'm a very large girl, and by large, I mean rather obese. I'm not talking like ten or twenty pounds overweight either. I won't give out my exact weight, but I'm 5'10" and I'm rather hefty. And Sora is obviously, erm, skinny and male. I know a lot of girls/women cosplay as men, but I'm more concerned about the fact that I am big.

I really want to go to this upcoming convention (which would be my first ever), dress as Sora, and just have some escapist fun. But, I get teased and taunted enough in my life, and I think it'd kill me if people came up to me and were all, "Sora isn't fat!" or something to that effect. Because I'm not trying to show any disrespect for the character or the fandom. I just want to go and have a good time and show my appreciate for a character I personally adore. (And I'm a nerd who loves to dress up, even though I rarely do so.)

So please, fellow cosplayers... what should I do? Should I just go for it and try and have fun, or should I refrain from cosplaying as Sora because overweight girls like me just shouldn't do that sort of thing? I could really use your advice. And it'd be appreciated if you didn't flame me or post overly rude comments, either. Thank you! <3

EDIT: I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented! I went ahead and decided to cosplay Sora! ^_^ I only hope that everything works out. *crosses fingers* And if I feel uber brave, maybe I'll post a picture or two. :)

Wig question [Mar. 15th, 2010|08:40 pm]
Kingdom Hearts Cosplay

Ive never really done anything with wigs...and the most I've done with hair is coloring it and all.  So, here is my question.

I'm going to be doing my first "real" cosplay this year at Otakon '10, (I'll be going as Sora) and I'm not sure if it would be better if I were to just buy a wig and style it myself (never even like...touched a wig before or if it would be better if I would commission one?  (Hopefully someone slightly cheap...)
What do you guys think?  Because I don't want to buy a wig and completely mess it up, or to commission one and spend a lot of money on something I probably could have done...

Also, do you know of any people who can commission wigs and are good at what they do?

Another newbie to the community here.  :D  My name is Shichi *wave* How's everyone doing? 

Ahhh this community makes me happy. <3 

Yeah, so...  Demyx pictures, I have them!  Pretty much just the wig, since I didn't make the coat myself (for SHAME!) and you can't really see it anyway.  I was having waaaay too much fun with the photo booth thingy on my mac...
...Be gentle with me, it's my first time.  :C

For Sale: Organization Christmas Ornaments [Dec. 15th, 2009|11:14 pm]
Kingdom Hearts Cosplay

Right before this years AUSA I started on a bunch of ornaments to sell in the Artist Alley. Since I wasn't able to get the majority of the ornaments finished I decided to finish them up and attempt to sell them online.

Prices are $8 for any of the finished ones either found above or below cut and $10 for any custom commissioned ones plus $5 shipping within the US. Any orders made before Thursday will be shipped in time for Christmas.

More designs can be found below.Collapse )

Who doesn't love gangsters? [Dec. 15th, 2009|04:28 pm]
Kingdom Hearts Cosplay

[mood |sleepysleepy]

Hello hello. I am yet another new member! -gasp- Shocking, I know. You see, I've always wanted to cosplay, but the fear of horrible wigs/looking bad has kept me away from it for years. And I've decided that I just don't care anymore, and I will be sure to get good wigs. Anyways, that was besides the point -
Me and two other of my friends decided that for Otakon '10 (A bit off, but whatever) we were going to do KH - only gangster. Because I've seen a ton of goth and scene ones. BUt I haven't come across any gangster KH. So, while this post seems longs and pointless...it isn't.
My first question is - wigs. Where do you suggest getting good ones/styling. For I am indeed naive in that aspect.
Second - the keyblades! While I could blow money on one, I think it would be so much more fun to make one...so...how would I go about that?
And I suppose if anyone has any ideas on the costume (being all gangster and such) we have a main idea, but are still planning. Pardon that this is post is long, and if I am breaking any rules ><;; Thanks for any and all help~~

OH! And our plan is a Sora, Riku and Kairi. And then we want to make one of our friend into a paopu fruit...though he doesn't know yet. And we are all of the female type....and I don't think I'm forgetting anything...

[music |Ludo - Love Me Dead]

Why hello thar! I found this community in my search for random stuff, and said "HEY. I cosplay KH! Shweet!"

But yeah. Obviously, I'm new here. I'm an Axel/Lea cosplayer, and part of a cosplay group called the Nobody Brigade. We're ridiculous. I'm hoping to pick up some tips from all the awesome folks here, and maybe even give some of my own someday - and maybe wrangle up some interest in my group's community and YouTube stupidity.

We recently helped out with a free convention at our university, called Kaji-con in our early staged Organization XIII cosplay. I'll post up some of the pictures once I get some of the better quality ones, if anyone is interested!
