That's a fair point May not be able to see through demented hair but at least the capes will look awesome XD

I was Black Canary in May and for the DC shoot we went down into the car park which is good for gritty-looking photos, but this isn't the grittiest of shows...Maybe Chloe (PaperTiger) will have some ideas c:

A later shoot would be really great, but it depends, I'm staying with my parents and it can take me two hours to get back, I don't want to burst in on them, but it should be okay if I leave before 9. In October it shouldn't take too long to get dark c:


Yeah, it should start getting dark around 6 - 7. It doesn't need to be pitch darkness, just a little darker It's weird though, cause the Wonder and Super Characters generally save the day DURING the day, whilst the Bats are at night. Why they're working together is a bit odd lol.

Hmmm, it's not gritty... It's a clean but not kinda show, isn't it? Urban areas, which aren't too dismal...

And if we stand with the wind blowing from the front right/left to back left/right, then our hair shouldn't be too demented. Anyway, I'm sure every superhero have their off days.

EDIT: I didn't see you there, Paper! It's good that that's the case lol. XD

EDIT2: Or you Penguin! Damn stealth posting!! >( lol

I don't know the Docklands well enough, so it's probably best you guys decide. I will be staying somewhere around there though... Hopefully there are still hotels available... I'm not travelling from Norfolk and back each day!

Another vote for the bridge. How about the back entrance just outside were we had the DC meet in May? There stairs and some interesting railings etc out there and the really pretty purple/green hotel in the background.

Time's no problem for me. We're staying the night and probably having diner in the area so I can check back at any time. Maybe we could do some in the afternoon (while everything's in good condition) and then decide if we want to do more later?


I think windy photos will look quite awesome

I'm sure we'll find somewhere good. I can't remember exactly what the back entrance was like but I think that seems like a really good idea c: I think it would be a good idea to do things in the afternoon when everything's okay, then even if we come back in the evening with con-bashed costumes it'll be okay c:

I love the burritos one... Wow...

On an added note, I'm probably travelling down on the sat, staying Sat night, then going back on Sunday. So, do people want me to bring actual burritos and foods fand we could have a picnic? They'd be cold mind you.

I've no idea if cold burritos are any good, but I'll definitely contribute to the picnic idea with some cupcakes/ brownies.

If I do more of a veggie base one, or a mex chilli, then there isn't much of an issue as there is still a lot of flavour :3 I'm totally gonna put a bat logo on my cool box

I've never actually had a burrito! I'll try and contribute something, not sure what, but I'll try! I'll be a destitute student in October so I apologise if I turn up with a bit of stale bread or something

Love those t-shirts too

Okay, I'm having major problems with Batgirl. I can't make her cowl or her gloves for the life of me. Aaaaand I'm not sure how well it's gonna look overall, period.

Everytime I make it they look awful. It's because she insists on having bat ears, and those claw things going up her arms. And I can't make the cowl, fullstop. I just don't know how. It's a full cowl and it's evil and I hate it >/ Also, gloves are just generally evil and fiddly.

How about making the front of the cowl out of something like foam and then covering/continuing it with material? That might give it a better shape. Same with the gloves maybe, attach the spikes to the basic glove then cover. That's all I can think of.

I've done that with the gloves already... I think I need to find that plastic mask bit for the cowl - it's just not holding it's shape what with me having a wig under it... I could, at a pinch, murder the wig and have that attack directly to the cowl instead...

Nixie I'm really sorry I can't help more, I've never made anything like that but we covered foam with fabric for the belt on my costume and it worked really well c:

Nixie,

Don't mean to intrude but idly scanning posts whilst on a train and noticed your problem. I'm not sure how her cowl looks at the moment, but we had to make El one for Catwoman and (once we'd got past the "how the &*%$ can this be done?" moment) it wasn't too bad.

Lots of trial and error on our part (and adjusting) but we got something workable. Have a look at what we ended up with and if it can be used as a basis for you, let me know and I'll put together a step by step guide.

Sorry guys, but I'm not gonna be able to do this.

I've got to remake this and Amora's corset cause of my cat is an annoying piece of crap and has ruined it. And I don't have time to do this AND also do the other commitments I have.

I'm really sorry.

Sorry, didn't notice the update...

@Nixie: That sucks for you! Cats can be very annoying when you're working on things.

I'm about halfway on mine, so I don't mind leaving it and waiting til we can all get together if that's better.

@quixoticschlemiel: What'd you think?
