very good. i especially love your cancer bag and scarf did you wear the costume the whole day? because i know from first hand experience it is a mix of suffocating and dying from heat stroke if you are somewhere inside...
I did it the hard way. I would have used a balaclava, but the Snippy jacket was made out of really thin material and I needed to keep myself warm. So instead, I used a black sweatshirt. I cut a hole in the back of the hood and wore the sweatshirt backwards. Good lord, it was a sauna in there. So if you can, make sure the holes for seeing and breathing are large enough.
Welp. The sight is very limited and since it was very crowded, I bumped into a lot of people. You kind of get used to it and once you take off the goggles, you remember what it's like to see 100% XD
Also, I didn't have a shawl or a black cloth to wrap around my neck area, so instead, I put on a sweatshirt backwards and cut a giant hole so I could see through the hood. But my stupidity forbid me to cut another hole for me to breathe. So it was a little muffled.
I had to wear a sweatshirt under the jacket because the jacket is actually made out of really thin material and it was relatively cold outside. ^-^
Wow, RA cosplay seems like some sort of endurance test XD You deserve a medal! I've tried walking around with my goggles on, to try and get used to the limited sight, its pretty weird, and everything being blue is a bit crazy too.
I had no idea what to use to hide my face, but my friend cosplays as Captain/Engie a lot, and recommended a balaclava - like the sort a motorcyclist wears. So we'll see how that one turns out Aaaawh! for lack of oxygen! XD That is dedication, right there.
Huh, thats surprised me, it doesn't look like thin material at all The jacket really does look great, the whole costume is awesome!
Haha Yeah! When you take off the goggles, its like all of the colours are vibrant and dancing all over I had two layers of blue filament so the blue was pretty dense.
Yeah, I would recommend using a scarf or something to cover up the neck and face area. Something so you can just lift up on the mask and receive fresh air.
I had a seamstress sew it together for around $90 (Fabric and pattern included) because I can't sew. I could have used some black spray on a white sweatshirt, but I've used that fabric spray before and it fades terribly if you wash it.
Lol trippy colours XD The blue is really weird, i'm using a lighting gel to cover mine, but you can still see my eyes through them -__- I'm gonna try and find some reflective tint, you can put on windows, and see what thats like.
Yus, breathing and fresh air sounds like a good plan! I made the mistake of not taking out the little rubber things on the inside of the respirator, the first time i tried it on A mistake you only make once XD
Thats a really good price for everything Lol, you're not alone there. I've used fabric spray on my jacket 0__0 Thanks for the heads up, it will NEVER be washed! XD
I used two layers of theatrical light sheeting. One on each side of the glasses. I'll stay tuned to see how the reflective stuff looks for you. :>
haha oh boy. Yeah taking those out will be magical. ALSO: What are you using for painting the mask black?
It was still kind of expensive. I was on a budget and I went over. D: Just be very very careful with the fabric spray. I would recommend ironing the coat to help fasten the colour. I think it may say that on the back of the bottle, but don't iron it straight up. You need a buffer material in-between the jacket and the iron.
lol just read the instructions. I feel like I have my bossy pants on ;-;
