Costume Information

Simon's adorkable, I love him! xD Sarcasm and sweetness and nerdiness and he has some of my favorite lines in the series~! And he spoilerfically becomes one of my favorite mythological creatures in an unpretty way, which I think is awesome.

I actually cannot wait to cosplay him! 8D I need to flip through the books again and see what he wears...I remember him having nifty tshirts at times though, haha! Need to find out which glasses to wear and such too....yeeeeah, I'm pumped! x3

And, and! Awesome group in the works, methinks! BD

Psh, an edit less than 24 hours after adding this xD I need to go buy the first book now, I can't seem to find a reliable source to find out if Simon's hair is black or brown. I always pictured him with black hair, but...I dunno which I think looks best anymore )= Will post some pics with brown hair and see how that looks, I suppose~
-still uber exited-

Probably going to go out and see if I can buy a nice Simon-y shirt and cosplay a very simple version of him on Friday at Expo. If I can't find one, I'll wear the shirt that I have set aside for him xP
I'll make up for this fail by customizing an accurate/more Simon-y shirt for him when I cosplay him properly! =)

Edit again 05/11/12
Much spazzing occured and I'm cosplaying Simon again with some awesome buds and I CANNOT WAIT. Spacky photos and board games galore!
I've decided to make Simon's "Made In Brooklyn" shirt for Expo because I love that shirt for some reason. Will probably have it as a dark blue tshirt with an either grey or black long sleeve shirt underneath~

Hey hun just read your journal post and I'll be going through the trilogy in the next week or so for descriptions for Jace, if you want I'll pick out Simon's as well and send you them to you in a pm. Shame you don't have the other books as I'm sure there's some good descriptions of him in there. Check out your local Works if you have on I saw City of Glass in there the other day for £1.99

That'd be very helpful, thank you! I don't know when I'm going to be able to get them now...typical, the two that describe him most I don't have!
I went looking for the books the other day and couldn't find them, it was weird...I need to look again. Just checked to see if there's a Works here, and there is! I'll try to find it sometime, thanks for mentioning it!^^

Your welcome. I'll probably start looking through the first book tomorrow and anything I find describing Simon I'll write down then I'll send them through when I have a decent enough list. :D

Okay need to ask don't suppose you, Jonathan and Magnus are going to Winter LFCC are you as these characters. I'm thinking about taking my Jace, mine will be movie version but only cause I've already done book inspired.

To-Do List

Buy new glassesLowComplete


Wig test + random thoughts (Posted 5th February 2011)

So, I slapped on my Syao/Harry wig and my $1 reading glasses that I can't see out of to take a snap of what I might wear wig-wise for Simon. I think it looks okay, but...I dunno. I might buy another wig, mostly because I find the back a bit too anime-ish. But then again, I'm not made of money so I don't know whether it's worth investing in a more normal-looking wig...b'aww. Excuse the fact that I kinda did this randomly and made no attempt to look like a dude.
(putting this in journal because I dun want it on the front page xD)

Basically skimmed all of City of Glass this week. Sadly it's the only book of the series I actually own since I discovered and read this series at a library. All I got from it really are some of his mannerism and how he holds himself. And that he must have a long fringe, because of a certain mark he gets...nyeheh 8D In other words, not much of any kind of physical description.

ALSO....City of Fallen Angels comes out on the 5th of April...I'm kinda tempted to wear Simon on the way/way back/during an evening of KitaCon now because of that xD
