Plans for Otakon 2004  
I like FFX-2. I like interestingly-designed animal character costumes (many of which happen to be skimpy, but that's besides the point). Thus, my next cosplay project will be...





BERSERKER RIKKU!

Yes, this is going to involve a hell of a lot of work, but I'm up for it. It doesn't seem to be a commonly cosplayed Rikku outfit, so I won't worry if parts of the costume give me a colossal pain in the ass, tempting me to simplify them into something that looks reasonably good and matches everything else. I saw a picture of someone dressed in a Berserker outfit with a plain white bikini and armor that was blue and sort of similar but rather plain, and the overall effect was still pretty cool.

Things to do:

- Find and purchase a sewing machine. I can actually afford my own this year. Yaaaay.
- Order fake fur.
- Figure out how to make stuff.
- ?????
- COSPLAY!

Cool beans! I was thinking of going with Sculpey for the flat beads and buying big white round ones, and I just found some great articles on making costume armor out of craft foam and thin plastic sheeting, but if that doesn't work, I might have to bug you about this polymer stuff.

BTW, this gives me another eBay idea for ya - replicas of the jewelry that a popular anime or game character wears. You could also do this on commission if you wanted to. Not only that, if you're good at gradient dyeing, you could make some $$$ selling scarves for Rikku's thief outfit. That costume is going to be HUGE this year, I tells ya... ^_^

hmmmm.. that is something that I should look into.
