Thanks for the pic. Its one I have been considering and it was one sugguested because I could do it with my own hair.

Now that I've overcome the armour challange, theres a few that I now can do. Still, I have a few that I would love to do.

I would love to do Siegfried from Soulcalibur 4 (pic already posted). I would love to do Sephiroth's final boss from from FF7 (its in the planning stages). I would also love to cosplay Minerva from FF7 Crisis Core (not posting pic as its a spoiler for those who haven't planned the game).

I'd love to cosplay Yue, complete with wings, from Cardcaptor Sakura but alas, i don't have the height to pull it off to it's full potential! not unless i do chibi Yue :3

Would also love to go as Yoko but don't have the confidence! Plus i've been slacking in the gym visiting recently so would need to work out some more XD

Win! Who would you get to be your sticky fingers though? XD

I still think my dream cosplay is Captain Harlock and Mr Bird, but i'll do it one day soon mark my words! *shakes fist*

Other than that... if i'm dreaming here probably Wrex from Mass Effect or Sir Fratley from FFIX something insanely difficult like that anyway XD

Excellent choices Greyskull. I've only seen one other person do chaos and that was someone in the US. I would love to be part of your DOC group. At the mo I think the only character I could do is Hojo. I've not played the game yet so I'm not familar with other characters yet.

Oh man, if I was ever in a DOC group I would do Yuffie.

too cute!:





It doesn't look particulary hard, but I have so much on my plate right now. I really gotta think about what cosplays I really want to do and what ones I'm not so keen on.
):

-hugs Yuffie again-

Mine would certainly be Abe Sapien from Hellboy 2 : The golden Army.
But i highly doubt if i ever would be able to do it, all the equipment and latex materials would be uber expensive!
But hey, give it a good few years and you never know?

My brother is very familar with latex and FX make-up so there is a possiblity. Its most likely that he will be doing my make-up for the Elf Prince from Hellboy 2. Maybe we could do it as part of a group.

I would to go for a 100% Crusnik form Abel from Trinity Blood. The glowing viens are a possiblity but the nekkidness would be a problem.

lol Nekkid Crusnik Abel~ X D

When i was thinking of cosplay i thought of you cosplaying Nuada simply because you totally have the same hair! X D
Well then, i might just have to poke your brother for advise ; 3

Abe would be a hugely impressive one to do.

I wonder what the experts use? 'cos they manage to make it all moveable too (although to my utter dismay i saw that Del Toro had used CGI for Hellboy's right hand at one point in the first film).


25 Aug 2008 - 14:375542
Abe Sapien takes 5-7hours to put on, depending on whether hes shirtless or not. This is by a team of about 3 airbrush artists and 2 SFX makeup and prosthetic artists.

I'm not sure who designed Abe Sapien, but Pan was done almost souly by Lala Huete. I know that the Costume designer on Hellboy was Sammy Sheldon and the key SFX makeup and prosthetics artist/designer was Roland Blancaflor. I know Lala Huete has her own website, dont think the others do. Guillermo Del Toro himself actually does a lot of the designing though!

Latex and silicone are used for the entire body hands and feet. His head is mechanical, much the same way as Pan in Pans Labyrinth, Doug Jones mouth is on show but the rest of his head is covered in a very thin mechanical structure covered in a latex/silicone mix skin. The mechanics allow for facial movement, without it he would just have the same expression the same time.




Here are some photos that might show what I mean
http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/hellboy2behind~6.htm

http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/panbehind~9.htm

This is an ace video as well to see the latex muscle suit as well
http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/hellboy2~abegreet.htm
New ones have to be made all the time for him to wear. I have a whole load of tutorials on making these very delicate muscle suits (no foam is used) that i can scan in.

In this you can see how his back is actually enhanced by a lot of latex muscles and airbrushing.
http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/hellboy2~trailer4.htm


Theres load of videos on Doug Jones myspace of him getting into costume which are very educational.

Im a HUGE fan of Doug Jones and Guillermo Del Toros collaborations together (can you tell!). Id never attempt the costumes myself as I know I'd never live up to their amazing standards and I'd just hate myself if I did a poor job. This is my personal favourite of theres
http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/hellboy2~4.htm
I think its an incredible design and Doug Jones moves beautifully in it.




p.s. for anyone whos interested Doug Jones also plays this guy
http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/hellboy2~2trailer3.htm
pale man look a like?

p.p.s if anyones interested I also have a load of making of clips of all of doug jones costumes...

i know what you mean about not doing a good job. on the one hand it'd be great to piece together costumes for next to nothing, but on the other hand you feel wretched for not making it 100%.

yea fair play, i make most of my costumes from rubbish and junk around my house. just something as technically difficult as abe I would never attempt since there isnt actually much to his "costume" as such, its just his flesh on show which you could only do with prosthetics, mechanics and airbrushing! but im also a die hard doug jones fan, so I'd rather watch him perform in them rather than me make an awful rendition!

thats just my bleak outlook though! id love to see someone do abe! id still fan girl over it!
