Tentacle Monster or Puppetmon?
OK, well, for Auchinawa 2008, since it's not too far away to be carting something large, I want to make something a bit epic. Obviously, I'm pretty much gonna hafta start making it fairly soon if I want it done decently and in time (because I'm a procrastinator of the highest order). However, I'm having difficulty deciding whether I want to do Puppetmon (Digimon) or a Tentacle Monster.

Now, I think that the Tentacle Monster might be easier to do and it would be good practice for sewing lycra (my planned list involves a lot of spandex-ed superheroes/villians, mostly men...), but Puppetmon presents its own challenges (the very round head for a start) and I'd probably attempt some sort of squeaky mallet-thingy too for added awesome. Both would involve some opportunity for my favourite costuming element of having bits attached to various limbs with strings. I will eventually do both, but what to do first?

So, yeah, help please!

You're the Ariel cosplayer from Amecon aren't you I talked to you briefly before the masquerade (I was handing out chocolates) and you mentioned Puppetmon.

My vote goes that way ^_^ I think it would be a fantastic costume - challenging, but I've never seen it done and it would really make a lot of people feel nostalgic <3

Both are fun costumes though, if you got into character it would be awesome!

Indeed I am, I remember you. You were also co-running the j-pop party(?) And I talked to you for a bit then, plus when you were in your Cooking Mama cosplay (that was you too, right?), I was hanging out with Angelphie and Ashe. Thank you for the chocolate, that was very sweet of you.

Yeah, you wanted to do Digimon cosplay too (TK?), so that would be cool to have a group for. I shall ask some other people's opinions too, but that'd be awesome.

I've just put two and two together and worked out who you are! (In a non-scary-stalker way, I assure you XD) Its so hard to keep track of people at cons when they wear so many different costumes!

I would adore you if you did Puppetmon, I've never seen anyone attempt him, and it'd be so awesome. I will cosplay Matt eventually (or make someone I know cosplay him) just for the fact that I had a crush on him for so long when I was younger (I dont care how sad that makes me sound, I have no shame in admitting that!)

So yes, although both ideas would be cool, he definately gets my vote!

And I think I know who you are too, hey Kat *waves*.

Well, I was rather partial to Matt as well and I don't mind admitting it either. Although, more alarmingly, I did rather like Devimon too. lol.

Well, Puppetmon seems to be winning atm. I've asked other people elsewhere too and he seems to be quite popular (and here I thought I was the only one wot liked the deranged little marionette). As I say, I will eventually do both, 'tis just a matter of time.
