So I'm a cosplayer, in May I'm going to a con and I'm gonna make a cosplay from Domo, not sure what yet, so give a gurl and hand choosing.

Either:
SE5 Lily, level 60
34429
(Shura) HA Bronze armour (come on, who doesn't want to paint worbla that colour?)
(shura) LA Tough Leather armour (Again, colours and big f* sword)
Nicoles Clothes
34430

Or maybe something else? What do you guys think would make a good costume?

Oh and for anyone that cares, this is my cosplay page:

nicole is always a good choice as its very recognizable and looks good to boot

I love your stuff. http://media.tumblr.com/eb95182f7c6ed58c24b26f6315ac4bd2/tumblr_inline_n4g6lxAjc61r5mu4j.gif

Maybe try beginner's clothing since it's heavily recognized by the domo community.

Decided to go with the Lily, as it's a bit more simple, and should be quite comfy when worn (Praise the lord)
Have some progress:

Ooohh~ more proress. Not much now, as I've still got a lot to do.
-Finish up the stockings, the detail on the orange, the mesh straps to hold em' up, and the blue details around the shoes.
-Make the top
-Yellow details on the pants and shoes (I need to find my damn paint first)
-Re-paint horns.
-Re-style ponytail
-Make bows.

Yeah I've still got a lot to do but I wanted to share what I'd done thus far. Going to try and finish this weekend.

I especially love the horns and the cuffs!
What did you make them with? :o

The horns are from Amazon, I had to import them to the UK from US.
The cuffs are a pringles tube and lots of eva foam (camp mats) layered up and painted.

Eeee thank you! I'm glad I finally get a pink wig, after about 30 odd costumes.
The makeup is just the same in every single costume, I make it dark so it shows up in bad photos.
And thank you. You have very nice whiskers.

~~~More progress~~~
I now have the shoes, and they're like 7inch heels. Save me.
And now I have everything in, I'm cracking on and making the top. So now I'm painting the yellow details on both before construction begins.

The new finish date is for Kitacon at the end of the month.

So something has now gone wrong with the paint. It didn't set correctly and when I washed it, the paint just came off.
~SWEARING~
Okay well a thin layer was left on the fabric, in the right shape so I have at least have that as a guide for whatever I do next. I'm not sure if I should embroider it, or try paint again. I want to do paint as it's cheaper, and suits the domo aesthetic quite well.
Bah, I'm a bit annoyed.
Tomorrow I'm going to make the bow and I think re-paint the horns.

Brb going to go sulk over my failures and diploma in fashion manufacture.

This costume is being such a headache. The first lot of paint came off the top, now the second is awful and I've run out of fabric T_T
So I'm going to postpone it more (and cry more because I really wanna finish her) and do it a slightly different way which might actually work.

Also gonna do a location photoshoot once it's done, just need to try and find somewhere domo-esk in the English midlands.
