DC Super Best Friends Forever Group


I was wondering if, at some point anyone would be up for a SBFF cosplay group? Maybe at October Expo? I think it's a really cute little show and would be a lot of fun to cosplay, especially if we wandered around together! Maybe we could have a little photoshoot too? I'm planning to cosplay Supergirl anyway but it would be nice to have a specific SBFF group.

Thanks for reading this!

I might be interested in doing Wondergirl... What day were you thinking about doing this?

Batgirl looks like fun, but it depends on the day. I'm already in the Marvel group and I plan to try and get Loras finished for any Game of Thrones peeps.

I'm down for the Marvel group on Sunday too.

I don't have a day planned, but I'll say right now that I won't count on being able to attend on Friday. It doesn't have to be for October Expo! I just wanted to check for interest. But you're both amazing cosplays and if you're up for this on the Saturday maybe this could be a lot of fun!

I'm free for Saturday.

Lets do that then! I've been looking at time, and I don't really have enough of it to make a tone of detailed armour. So! Lets go!!!

And Penguin, you're gonna be stuck with me for two days! Mwahahaha!

I'm really excited that we're doing this! Saturday it is! And I get to be in a cosplay group with two of my favourite cosplayers, I'm really happy c: It'll be a lot of fun!

Can I ask you two a question? SBFF!Supergirl has that distinctive curl and I have no experience styling wigs, however I can style my own hair to look very similar, or at least, I think so;



What do you guys think? Hopefully I'll be a lot blonder by October (when I afford to fry my hair!), and I think it looks alright. Or do you think it'd be better to buy a wig?


31 May 2012 - 18:4085117
I think it looks good like that.

Tbh, Super Girl's hair is really really voluptuous and has a lot of bounce. In my experiences, this is a lot lot easier to do with really hair than it is to do with a wig, so I think you'll be better with your real hair.

I have my own question; batgirl's cape... Should I make it from the same lycra material as the rest, make it in a darker shade, or make if from different material entirely?

And then; which lycra shade (I'm indecisive, you see)?

Lots of back-combing and mousse for me then! c:

I think that seeing as you're already buying the lycra material, it would make more sense to make the cape out of that material as well, and personally I think it'll look nice and neat that way as well. But it's your decision!

I think the fourth material is most accurate, but it seems to be a lot more expensive than the others, so maybe the third one?

quixoticschlemiel: Like Nixie says volume is easier in real hair than a wig and yours is pretty damn close already. If you want to make your hair really huge, you could try Bump Its. They’re like a plastic arch that you brush your hair over.

NixieThePixie: My only issue with making the cape from lycra is that doesn’t always hang well, so personally I’d probably go with the 1st or 4th lycra for the body and something a bit heavier for the cape. Sorry to give opposing advice.

I've seen Bump Its around, I'll pop into Claires soon and buy one or two, have a play around

And your advice about the lycra is probably a lot better, I don't have any experience with capes, I should have mentioned that, sorry @_@

Ah thanks! I'll find another fabric that looks good with the lycra then :3 And I have no experience with superhero capes, I've only made travelling cloaks.

On the subject of Bump Its - does it work on wigs as well, do you know? And I think they'd really add for Super Girl!

I've no idea, sorry. I don't really see why they wouldn't. It might be a little tricky to get everything into place but it should be doable.

Ah, I'll give it a go - it'll help with Lady Loki/Enchantress as they're hair has quite a bit of volume but wigs are generally a bit on the flat side.

I'm actually really excited about this. It looks like fun.

So am I! Ever since I saw a preview I thought it would be great to do a cosplay group. It's such a cute, fun show, and I think we'll get a good reaction, too. I'm really excited, it'll be a ton of fun to have all three characters!

(I'm tempted to bring along a loo roll as a prop, for a laugh, too)

Steal it from the hotel!!!

Even if no-one really understands the show, they'll still be recognised. The joys of logos on outfits

Good idea

That's partly why I'm so excited, I think especially as a group, we'll be recognised a lot, which will be nice.
