THERE SHALL BE POSING.
(It won't be any specific movie costume, because I am not wealthy enough to source eg, red snakeskin leather trousers in my size before Expo. But it shall be mighty.)
(And Pez shall be Hansel, of course. http://cosplayisland.com/costume/view/31286)
Edit: Wig's styled (will need a touch-up on the day, ofc), everything else is bought/arrived/adjusted as necessary. All set for Expo!

Headband (Posted 24th October 2010)
I've done the only bit of sewing I'll do for this costume--extending the headband. As a stretchy headband it wouldn't sit properly on the wig; I've adapted it into a tie-on headband instead so it won't put the same sort of pressure on the wig fibres.
So, uh, I think that makes this costume complete. Roll on Expo!
Clothing, wig (Posted 15th October 2010)
Well, I bought a totally appropriate suit (it's reversible--black leather one side, cream snakeskin on the other, and I giggle just typing that), a shiny dark-snakeskin-patterned top, and some low-heeled boots. All from the wondrous place that is ebay.
Apparently there are now several large parcels waiting in my office for me at work. *rubs hands together gleefully*
The wig has been styled and trimmed. Needs more gel/spray to get it *properly* upright, but is pretty impressive even now.
Ebay trawling (Posted 5th October 2010)
This cosplay could so easily be a closet cosplay, except that my closet doesn't actually contain enough snakeskin, leather, pvc or FABULOUS coats. Or any shiny suits.
So the ebay trawling begins. So far I've bought a top, a jacket and a headband. I've also bid on some plausible-looking trousers. I need to get boots/shoes, but I think I might want to do so after I've assembled the rest of the costume--shoes make an outfit, after all.
