(my best friend) and
(Me) are planning on doing Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) cosplays.
I thought she would look really good as Alois... and I have the perfect hair for Grell, and I LOVE HIMMMM. So, it pretty much worked out. So, technically, we're both cross-playing. Fabulous.
Anyway. We absolutely have no idea where to start! (I'm not exactly sure about that, actually, now that I think about it.) We don't want to buy anything off a cosplay site unless ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
Here's what we need:
Hair: (She has short hair. She can straighten it and dye it.)
Blue contacts: (she already has blue eyes, so that's done with.)
White dress shirt: (I know where to get that)
Green and black striped vest: (Do they... even sell those anymore?)
Shorts: (Got those...)
Black Socks: (Got those too...)
Brown and Purple Boots: (And recommendations? They don't need the purple on them, just uh... brown.)
Purple Coat: (OH MY GOD. WE'RE PLANNING ON MAKING THIS. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO! HELP!)
Huge black Bowtie: (Anyway you can make that?)
Ring: (I guess any red and gold ring will work. I think I have one...)
Hair: (I'll dye it. But where can you get red hair dye for that much hair?)
Yellow-Green contacts: (I saw a contact place in a mall... maybe they'll have something.)
Glasses: (Already started to make them.)
White dress shirt: (Didn't I already say I know where to get it?)
Straps for shirt sleeves: (Wow. Please help me here! I don't even know what they're called...)
Brown and black vest: (They sell those, right? If not... how can I make one?)
Black dress pants: (Buy those where I got the white shirt...)
Chains for pants: (I saw one guy actually use a double-chained necklace for that... where could I find one of those?)
Shoes: (I know where I can buy similar shoes... strip off the leather, then paint it red...)
White and Red Ribbon (Bowtie): (You think they have those at Jo-Ann's fabrics? Probably, right?)
Chainsaw: (I can obviously make that...)
Coat: (OH MY GODDDDDD.... how on EARTH will I make that.... HELP!)
So, all we need is... Green and black striped vest, Brown and purple boots, Purple coat, Huge Black bowtie, Red hair dye, Shirt Straps, Brown and black vest, Chains for pants, and the Red and Black coat.
Help us please!
Also, we need to figure out how to talk like them too. (In english) Alois will probably be pretty easy, so
probably doesn't have to do anything about that. But for me... since I'm Grell, I need to do his FABULOUS voice. I can do it pretty well, actually. I'm a really good voice-actor, and a lot of people have told me. So, I decided to start practicing his voice now, so I don't need to do anything when we actually cosplay as them. :3 And, you obviously can't help us with that, so we'll be on our way, now.
~Thanks for the help!~
