Costume Information

I watched the movie and loved it and I definitely found the Once-ler's parts in the movie most interesting (and his song was just the best), I also really liked this design and figured it'd be simple enough to pull together.

I was kinda worried I wouldn't suit this character since I'm hardly as tall as him but I figured that maybe I might suit him facially at least. A few people said I'd pull him off well so here I am!!

I'm really sad that I have to wait so long for the movie to come out in cinemas (though I have already watched it... shhhh.... I'll see it in the cinema multiple times and buy the DVD so how bad could that possibly be?) and I'll definitely wear this cosplay when I go to see it.

This is waaay overdue because I have a horrendous habit of putting cosplays off... but uh, all I need for this right now is the waistcoat and gloves and it's done.

Shoes (Posted 6th April 2012)

Went out today hoping to buy some cosplay stuff and all I got for Once-ler was shoes but I'm happy with them cause they're really snazzy hehehe, I really like them.

Wig worries (Posted 29th March 2012)

Ah yes, as much as I love that wig I chose, I can't help but WORRY ABOUT IT now I've ordered it. Will it be accurate enough??? Is the fringe part facing the wrong way?? Does that really matter?? u__u I'll just have to hope it looks good when it arrives.

Wig (Posted 27th March 2012)

I just bought this wig for my cosplay, I'm pretty happy with it?? Especially the fringe part, that's what sold it for me, since most of them are either too thin and spaced out or just weird and flat looking. It's a liiiiittle bit long but honestly, wigs that are too short don't work very well covering my hair :/ I'm happy with it!
