PAX ideas or how I learn to cosplay in 4 months or less
So how to go about this? I’m to be bald until May and PAX is April, so if I want to do this I need to pick a baldy.
Two of the ideas are original creations of mine, such is my ego, I guess I’d feel more at home in the skin of somethong I created.
An issue would be if asked who I am and where I come from is the answer “A work in progress.” Hardly captivating.
Also my ego dictates I do not just look a character, but have a role, hence why I mention accents.
Gru from Despicable Me Attire: Grey turtleneck, black pants, black zipup coat, black leather shoes, black and grey scarf. Require: East-European accent (can probably pick this up with a few more watches of Despicable Me) Problems: How to make a Gru G symbol for zip? How to affix said G to zip? Need longer nose than what genetics gave me?
Professor Hugo Strange from Batman Attire: Varies from season to season, but I think Arkham City is a good look. White labcoat, black/grey leather gloves, grey suit trousers, black leather shoes and round-rimmed glasses. Require: Grey chin curtain beard Problems: Need to be as surgical as possible with the clothing as Arkham City Hugo is more hands on than usual with his SCIENCE.
Mender Augustus Fairfax - Time-travelling Victorian that controls earth and plant life. Attire: Monocle, white shirt, red ascot (or maybe just tie), gold waistcoat, brown/beige pants (to be tucked into) tall brown boots (military fashioned?), thick gold three-ringed bracelet for each arm. Require: Brown chinstrap beard Learn some Victorian to authenticate Problems: Bracelets may be best making from indivodual pieces and ease of getting off without having them flop about all over No real way of indicating power mentioned above Waistcoat should be brass but have little in way of making one let alone transporting such a thing.
Ba’al / Pietro di Lucifus - An old mage from 1900s possessed by an Abyssal demon. Attire: Simple black suit with blue shirt and black/blue tie, black leather shoes (there’s a theme here) Require: Voice is demonic (tweak so throat won’t need watering every five minutes) Grey mustache (anti-Just For Men?) Untitled brown leather book with clasp/lock Maybe fill a few entries of book with Drakmarth’s experiments circa 1902. Problems: Not many ways I can look over 100 Could turn the clock back to earliest possessed But that means new attire for time period and still 50-something when it first occured.
