Mr. Oniya is currently threatening to work up a Dalek cosplay to balance out the abundance of 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors that we saw this weekend.

Given my physical shape, if I were to cosplay, and say, Doctor Who, I'd go as the TARDIS.

Personally I wish I could go as an Arc trooper, but I do not have the skill to piece together armor. I wouldn't even know the first step.

For me, step 1 was "have an experienced friend who will hold your hand through the entire process if it means her heavy-armour group gets an Iron Man or a Rescue". I'd point you in the right direction, but... I can't seem to find any patterns for ARC armor that people aren't charging for.

My 'Lady' cosplay, medieval style outfit, is off the roster for my cosplays, for awhile. It needs modifications. I've begun the process on working on a few more of my original character concepts, hopefully they go over well.

Start with cardboard.  I saw some fabulous armor this weekend that was cardboard and colored duct tape.  Since cardboard is cheap and easily attainable, you can go with the 'cut away everything that doesn't look like a shin guard' technique.

This, pretty much. Go-to beginner materials are cardboard or thin foam rubber sheets. If you want a cardboard costume to last a long time, though, you'll need to learn to work with fiberglass resin. I'm going with foam for my first armour, but I'm lucky enough to have a good pattern.  (I'd recommend poking around the RPF or the 501st - the former is loaded with general tips and tricks, and the latter is focused on clone army builds in particular.)

While, I haven't cosplayed, I have a cousin who does an amazing Poison Ivy. Were I to do so myself, I'd love to do either the David Tennant Doctor Who or an escapee from one of the Vaults from Fallout. Could be fun to make a Vault 108 or 77 jumpsuit, just to see who twitches when they remember what happened there....

Yeah, Pepakura is the standard in armour design. It's what I'll be using for my Rescue.

Anyone go to WonderCon this weekend? OMG, you guys and your Cosplays are so awesome. I was so jealous of all the creativity and amazing craftiness put into them.  <3

I luv you all, just so awesome. Never stop doing it!

It's only the 2nd Con I've ever been to and the first really big one. It was overwhelming there was so much to see and do. (I think I need some sort of like Anime character guidebook or something though. I had no idea who half the costumes were but they were still super amazing.)
