An Honest Step-by-Step Guide To Cosplay

It all starts with that fancy Iron Man or Deadpool costume, but then things like platinum-cure silicone moulds or even guides on the internet can ruin our progress with the perfect cosplay quickly.

The guys at Dorkly have a step-by-step answer though and they show it in their latest comic.

An Honest Guide To Cosplay [Dorkly]

    The fact that I'm going as the 11th means this hits a bit close to home.... But that was always the plan, I swear

    The simplest cover all no need to be complicated cosplay is the stig, reasons why:
    1. You need a good racing outfit
    2. Get a racing helmut of the same colour &
    3. Say that you are the stig's cousin from somewjere or of something
    easy way to cosplay with success

    @cookingmama & @scree, you guys are better than this!!

      I'm sad now

        Are you doing one too? I've not seen any photos on TAY I can remember!

          Yeah, I don't really post on TAY anymore :P I'm helping Scree and making stuff for fun. I pretty much just post here http://f4props.blogspot.com.au/ and on my twitter

            Brotherhood of steel!!! Holy crap that would be awesome to make, the gloves look pretty spot on! Are you going to wear it to PAX?

              Not a chance it will be ready for then as a whole suit but I hope to at least have the helmet done by then!

                If anyone asks why you're just wearing the helmet just say you haven't completed all the side quests yet :p

    While a very accuarate and authentic cosplay is always a sight to behold, I actually really like alternative takes on a character, like genderbends, steampunk/cyberpunk, rockabilly/pinup. I'm new to cosplay, so I just try to base my costumes on my sewing ability, rather than the other way around.

      I'm the opposite. I like to try and test or push my sewing abilities

        Same, the skill requirement is just a minor hurdle that can be worried about later, after coming up with the idea in the first place. Though maybe sometimes not that minor :P

    I am cosplaying The Penguin from Batman Returns, finishing up some last parts this weekend, then it is just a matter of learning to apply prosthetics and the makeup

    There's more panic and tears involved when you realise how close to a con you are. "I can totally build this functioning arm-- oh, there's two days until ... /cry"

    I'm just trying to work out how to re-use the wig from this one for a new costume...green lantern perhaps?
