Hey guys! I'd like to request some help getting a painwheel cosplay set up!
I am fairly new to the cosplay scene and would like any help at all!

some things to keep in mind!

1: My Sex is Male, so I don't have 'Necessary Equipment'
2: I have a very low budget so cheaper is better!

Now onto my main questions!

1: Is there an easy way to fake said "Equipment"?
2: what should I make the mask out of?
3: How should I go about making Buer Drive?
4: Any good Painwheel cosplays I can base my things on?

Ah another male wanting to cosplay. You could follow a similar build like I did in the previous page.
I would recommend you do the mask in paper mache.
Blades could also be done in Paper mache or in Elmer's Foam Boards, the best quality with a smooth back on it so you can paint on it. Of course spray paint if you want to paint your blades.
The Dress is a little tough so you want to find a good/best quality of a fabric like from bed sheets but a thick one. The stiches on her face are easy Black Eyeliner so grab some off a friend who carries make up with her. The nails sprouting out her body I wasn't able to pull off, the shackles you could do maybe cardboard. And she's barefoot so might wanna use sandles for comfort. The makeup on her body, that shouldn't be too hard if you know where to look. I recommend Ben Nye Dye, just beware of smudges but you shouldn't have a problem since the make up is on your arms and legs and feet. Easy to remove with some scrubbing when you shower. Though since you are male if your legs are kinda hairy, I recommend you use either some time of skin tone leggings or shave it off. I shaved my legs to apply the make up since the hair got in the way and my legs had a lot of hair.
That should be it. I bid you good luck. You could be the 2nd male to cosplay as painwheel, since I haven't seen any other picture of a guy cosplaying as painwheel other than myself. :P
 
Hey everyone! So about a month or 2 ago I posted about starting an eliza cosplay! Just wanted to update you all! Everything is being handmade by me. Just a reminder, this is my first cosplay so it's not perfect, but here are some photos! I also post some videos of prop making and sewing on my twitter @Questionkid and also my fb cosplay page https://m.facebook.com/Questionkid-Cosplay-1673499132924327/ if you want to check those out!

I want to try cosplaying as a male Ms. Fortune,(I wonder what you'd call him. Sir Prize maybe?), and I know I'll need some things, but I'm curious as to what materials I'll need when it comes to making parts of the cosplay. Like the tail and ears and pack maybe.

Finally managed to finish 3 versions of Eliza!!! Took months but managed to finish! Thought I should share it with you all! If you would like to see some progress pics and videos on how I made this I posted some on my facebook page! www.facebook.com/Questionkid-Cosplay-1673499132924327/?ref=bookmarks Just in case someone needs help making this also! There aren't many eliza reference videos or tutorials that I've seen. I would love feedback on this since I do plan to wear this at a con in 2 months. Thank you guys!!

I like it! A lot actually it's a nice cosplay. Don't see too many Cerebella cosplayers.
 
Hey there! I'm new to the forum~

I'm a cosplayer / artist that goes by the name ChaiBee!
I've actually visited this forum a lot but never made an account T^T
Once I saw that QuestionKid (another AMAZING cosplayer) has an account, I decided to make one.
I was at Anime Expo a few weeks ago, it was so much fun! Here's some awesome shots a photographer got for me-

hopefully I can chat and meet fellow skullgirls fans/cosplayers in the future! <333
 
Yo that staff is NICE. But you didn't come say hi? :^P

Thank you! I worked very hard on it UvU!
Aw, I did! I cosplayed Eliza saturday, and monday my friends encouraged me to do an... 'encore'... so I could visit the Lab Zero and Eighty Sixed booth~
I didn't have a whole lot of time to visit though u^u, it would have been cool to meet you!!!
I got to meet Mr. Bartholow, and Mr. Ahad, as well as many of the voice actors.
Meeting Mr.Ahad was a huge highlight for me- I'm an artist with a cartoony style and focus on female design, it was a dream come true!! ( QuQ)
 
Yo that staff is NICE. But you didn't come say hi? :^P

@Questionkid
It was hella nice to meet you! :^)
Soo nice meeting you too!! Loved the panel! Super excited for Indivisible!
 
Hi! It's my goal to cosplay all the Skullgirls playable characters (and some more on top of that)
So far I've done Painwheel, Annie, Ms Fortune (no pictures though :( ) Squigly and Fukua!
I never see many Skullgirls cosplayers but this year I got to meet Lauren Landa in my Squigly cosplay and she gave me a free signed print because I was the only Squigly who'd ever come to meet her at a con.

Who do you think I should do next?

Sorry that some of these are old so the quality isn't great!

I actually have a pattern drawn up for her hat I just need the motivation to make it! My hair is turquoise the moment too :)

Do people post WIP here or just finished pics
 
I've seen people post WIP before. I don't think there's a general rule against it.
