Q:I just came across your blog and I need to say your cosplay pictures are amazing!! I've been thinking of cosplaying ymir from snk for a while but now that I finally mustered up courage I can't find a good place to buy the belt part or the wig, would you mind if I ask where did you buy yours from?
Oh whoah, people still look at my cosplays? o.O Thanks so much! ^ ^; I bought my wig from http://lucaille.com/, which is the go-to place for my roommates and I for cheaper wigs that are pretty decent quality (the shipping is pretty pricey though, so if you can get other people to order at the same time it’s nice). Their Ymir wig is a very nice wig, but it’s very light for Ymir. I managed to get away with it when it’s just crappy iPhone selfies, but it bothers me enough that I probably wouldn’t wear it to a con. So you can go for it if you think you’ll be fine, but I know there are a lot of wig stores (like ebay stores) out there that sell more accurately colored wigs.
For the belts, I made them by sewing together actual belts. It was a huge pain in the ass and I’m still not satisfied with them, and I think belts are a bit harder to acquire in the US for as cheap as I got them in Japan. I know a lot of Shingeki cosplayers who order belts from ebay though, and they look quite nice. As to where to order those, I’m afraid you’d have to ask someone who’s done it…
I’m so sorry that really wasn’t helpful at all, I’ll publish this publicly so maybe someone who knows better can get back to you? And I’m sure you’ll be an excellent Ymir! I wish you the best of luck in getting your cosplay together~! <3
In case people have been wondering what i’ve been working on…the base of Baby!Smaug for my maybe!Bilbo cosplay, accompanied by floofball!Smaug that my roommate jienkishi made me and my foot for scale reference.
(My roommates have been calling him “the chicken”…i don’t think the tinfoil helps >.>)
I’ve been feeling really down but my absolutely amazing roommate jienkishi just surprised me with a little home-made Smaug floofball. Ugh he’s so cute. Thank you so much ;A;
Melancholy thrives in winter.
(Baby!Balrog’s whip becomes a toy for
kittyBaby!Smaug) I’m so sorry I don’t understand either
At Katsu now~
Cramming last tiny fix-ups of Eren’s costume. I’ve got Eren (SnK), Takao (KnB), and Nagisa (Free!) this time~ I was working on a Valentines thing for both EreRi and Bagginshield with baby!dragons but cramming cosplay kinda took priority…yeah… >.<
I had a challenge with a friend where we had to draw the other’s prompts within a time limit. Her prompt was “Thranduil with corkscrew curls” … the rest … just happened. :’D I’m sorry for traumatizing you.
(That’s what she did for me: Click.)
