So for those of you at home who don't know, one of my favorite things about being into comics and transformers is the cosplaying-specifically making the most mind-blowing costumes imaginable, although so far, I've only really done one outside of Halloween: Which I've worn to 3 NYCCs and TFcon, as well as used to win various costume contests (ok 2... but I totally got robbed in the the other two. Store-bought Jessica&Roger Rabbit! Seriously! If Master Chief's costume was home-made, he deserved it, as it didnt look home-made. Which is why I doubt if it was...) Sadly, it's starting to fall apart on me, the foot has already ripped a bit, not to mention past failed facepainting is splattered around the neckline. SO I was thinking of making a new costume this time, but can't seem to decide who to be! There are only so many characters whose costumes I can fit in, and of course, I like to go all out (im 5'6" normal, 7' in the Hulk suit) and I'm intent on making it Transform. I'm totally serious, and totally lost as to who to go as. I want to make it awesome, but just not sure who to be. So I'm open to suggestions, and once I get started, I'll make a WIP thread in the main customs forum. So yeah, if anyone has any ideas for a character, could really use them! Ideas I've had so far: Bumblebee: Talking G1. Mostly figured out a transformation, kinda. Well recognized character for sure, though after seeing Movie BB at the last 2 NYCCs I've been to, I'm hesitant (though he didnt Transform) Astrotrain: Pretty sure I could pull it off. Not a hundred percent sure, its probably the most ambitious of the ideas, i think i could possible make it work, though it would definitely be difficult. Huffer: Much less well known, obviously, possibly even mixed up with Optimus by some fans who just don't know. Might have a way to do the transformation, though its a little awkward to get it to work, not even sure if I could get it to look right. So yeah, any suggestions? EDIT:: While I wont be using it for NYCC next October, I do plan on doing it for TFcon and hopefully Botcon, if its within reason of the east coast.
