Costume Information

Watchmen fandom: stop making me want to cosplay really manly characters. I am small and scrawny and girly:/

Anyway, I figured there will be a TON of Rorschach's around that time, but I quite like the idea of being a big ginger geek in a trenchcoat holding a 'The End If Nigh' sign XD

You have no idea how much seeing the same person do Hachi and then Walter makes me overflow with awesomeness. Cannot wait to see this!

"I'm not in here with you, you're in here with me.*prison rampage*"
Thank you:)
Ah I know, I want to cosplay too many people from this fandom haha! I'd like to do Ozy too sometime, in his uber-80's 'possibly homosexual' purple suit!
I don't think I could pull of the women...Laurie always annoyed me,and Sally requires curves LOL.
I hope to not chicken out and wear this to the cinema on release day!

Like it. Good to see someone doing the unmasked Rorscach. Loving the Lamb Of God t-shirt as well!

Thank you:D
With not much time till the release I think Kovacs would be easier to put together.
LoG \m/ Saw them with Dimmu Borgir in Bristol recently.

No way! I saw them at Bristol as well! They were bloody awesome and Dimmu were great as well. I was pretty impressed by Five Finger Death Punch as well, they were good fun.

HAHA! Awesome, yeah FFDP were pretty good I thought too. I've been a fan of Dimmu longer than LoG so I was right at the barrier for them :D
Did you wait around afterwards? Managed to meet LoG but no Dimmu:/

Thank you! I don't know if I'll be going to Expooo now though D: Will you be wearing Laurie any other time? I may try for Bristol Comic expo (Dave Gibbons is there after all!) or perhaps bring it along to Aya.
haha! I bet. I had to totally ghetto my sign, hope to make a better one soon.

Ooh this turned out fantastic, you really pull off Walter sooo well! <3 I love the makeup and YOUR HAIR! 8D
Great job x3

Thank you!! I'm glad you think so :D
I tried to wear make-up...but not have it look like I was wearing make-up xD
I'm really happy with the wig actually, and it's just a really cheap-o fancy dress wig too! One of my friends I met up with was really drunk and she'd thought I'd actually cut and dyed my hair XD

by Shazz on Monday, 9 March, 2009 - 23:04

Ooh you pulled this off REALLY well! :)

Ha! nice one. That turned out great. Good job on sticking to the colour pallet.
Did you think about adding some stubble?
You could pull off the Kovacs as schoolboy too.

Thanks Rors :P!
Yes, I'd like to wear this again sometime, so I'll def. try for more make up and stubble. I did add in freckles but the camera didn't pick them up very well.
I think the general consensus is that I'd make an adorable chibi Kovacs XD

Dogs head in alley this morning... (Posted 8th February 2009)

I bought the coat for Kovacs^^ Also aquired this craptacular wig!
It's cheap, and a mens wig... But it's the right style and colour, so I can cut it shorter and style it..and hopefully it won't look so bad!

Rorschachs Jou..... er I mean Entry 01 (Posted 23rd December 2008)

Kovacs I meant, of course :P

Just sticking a few pics up of the things I've got bookmarked for the costume. Waiting till I get paid and then I'll get them.

This is the closest I could find to a good coat for it. It looks a bit shabby in colour too which is good, but it's made of Suede.
