SO I LOGGED IN TO FIND 53 SPAM MESSAGES REQUIRING DELETION omg what. I even have it set to CAPTCHA every user wow these leeches are persistent.
But anyway, IchibanCon is almost upon us!!!!!! :D For my big debut cosplay I will be doing Momiji Binboda from Binbougami Ga! Reference picture:
Her costume is almost done, but I am having a really hard time finding a yellow shirt with green stripes, actually O_O I've tried everywhere. Hopefully I'll get ahold of that before January.
The wig is almost here!!! It arrives in town today according to the tracking number, so it should be here tomorrow ;w;
So for progress, I'll post this giant syringe, since that's all finished.
For the base of the syringe, I used PVC pipe from Home Depot. This was about 7 dollars, super cheap. It was already the length I needed, so no cutting required!
There was a big black block of text running down the other side, and I think all pipes come like that. Just some sandpaper took that right off.
For the base I used this here tupperware. *shot*
For the top of the syringe, I basically just built a hexagon-type thing as seen in the photo to attach to the top (....yes it does say pizza.com yes....). it's got a hole in it so your arm slips through. For the needle, I just used a plastic tube. I did not file the tip of that tube down, because cons won't like a sharp plastic tube very much xP
The needle was painted silver and the tube was spray-painted blue. I'm SO happy I found the right shade of spray paint >w<
To keep the syringe on my arm, I installed a handle inside of it to hold onto so it stays on. The handle is basically some twisted wire running through the pipe. I drilled some holes into the sides of the pipe and strung the wire through it, and looped it until it was think enough to grip. Just for comfort's sake, I put some fabric around that wire as well x3
