I need help with cosplay

PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 1,911

I'd like to make a Legion mask and costume, but I don't know where to start... I've never done cosplay before and I really wanna do it so I wanna start with a simple character like Legion. I don't know what to make the mask out of, I don't know if there's any specific paint I should use, I don't know if I have to make the clothes or try to find something similar to them. I just really need help. Is there anyone who has made a cosplay before that could help me out please? At least with the basics...

    For the mask i can imagine you can cast it with resin (google resin casting)
    Anything else should be rather easily obtainable by google.

    Thanks, I'll look into that. I'll look for everything else as well. I've already got some similar shoes and some bandages for wrapping them around my hands. Not sure if I should make the weapon or just buy a cheap Halloween store one though. Thanks for the help!!!

    Many switchblades have a detachable blade, you may be able to modify one and/or make a custom blade, rather again by resin or a custom metal foundry/forge

    But thats only if perfection is more of a necessity rather than a luxury.

    Good news, i found something passing on amazon, might need minor modifications though, its one of these cheap for show knives ment to look scary rather than being practical.

    You can just use a file or sandpaper for the surface, clean it then repaint it if needed.

    Is Frank wearing a leather jacket and then a hoodie under it does the leather jacket have a hoodie and he just has it unzipped a bit with an undershirt? Do the pants seem more like sweatpants or hunting pants I can't tell?

    I think the color scheme seems to be more grey than anything else but another part of me is saying "no it looks kinda green", I think it's just the lighting in-game though. I'll look for a grey leather jacket but I already have a ton of hoodies since I'm a hoodie person :P. Thanks for all the help Chester :)
