Me looking silly for all the world to see!  
It still needs quite a bit of work.. but next time I see Ringo, I should have a lot more done on the gloves. We also need to come up with a better way to duct-tape me. It was really interesting last night, let me tell you! In any case.. after hair, makeup, latex, and the other things that need to get done, I think this costume will look stellar ^..^

Oh the wonders of duct tape!

A good shot of the back. The harness with be adjusted so it sits higher.

Ignore my lopsided chest! We're still working on a good way to tape it!

Sugoi! I like. *pats about the lobsided boobs. There, there. You certainly fill out the costume nicely, though. *grins*

Dude, what's the trick to making magical boobs like that? ^^ Duct tape?? How????

Integral-chan has so much "talent". XD I need to be at Ushi so I can fight back the fanboys! Ha ha, like I could actually move in my Cherry costume. ;) Anyway, I thought the process involved her lying on her back and strapping tape down the sides, but we may have to refine the technique for long-wear...? (The fairy Sugar wings were all duct-taped on, and they held pretty well all day, though. God it hurt taking it off... XD)

I think it all looks amazing, dear. I can't get over the ropes, they look spot-on perfect. I hope it's comfortable, because it's gorgeous. Our gloves look good too, we've definitely got those down to a science now. [wink] Paper Wings accuracy has never looked so good, no question. ^_^

ok.. part the 1st XD
Ok.. this was kinda tricky... especially b/c it's easy to end up with double-clevage.
I can't really tell how it would end up with others... but this is how we did it:
First, I made myself "pasties" out of paper and taped them down. Nothing hurts worse than the duct tape coming off bare nipples >..<
Then, I held my breasts up and against my chest, as high as I could. Ringo then taped diagonal lines running from the sides of each breast down to my navel. Looks like a big "v", and holds the chest together a bit.
Then, I laid down so my chest would sit more evenly up towards my chin. We started the duct tape a good 5 inches lower than the bottom of my breast, and taped all the way up to my fake "pasty" (You should still have about a foot of tape left here) Then, pull up as much as you can! Then, wrap the tape over and tape it down to your back. Do the same for the other side. You'll have double-clevage here, in the space between the first aned second lines of tape, but you can fix this by running another strip of tape down between the two. This should give you a double-clevage anyway, but it'll be pointing out in the direction you want. IT's tricky with costumes like mine where you can't show anything crossing horizontally beneath the breasts. But... granted we can get rid of the stuff that shows.. this method should work pretty well.. and ifyou have a costume where you can hide more tape, there are probably easier ways to do it. Like Mako said, I have a lot to wortk with ^..^**** So it's even trickier with the weight. (Hey.. should I be embarassed if my good cosplay point is my chest? I don't have good legs.. but I have good clevage.. lol)
Oh.. and the duct tape REALLY hurts coming off. My fiancee suggested medical tape. It may work better, but we haven't tried it yet.

Re: ok.. part the 1st XD
I did work-study as an athetic-trainer in high school, and medical tape is crappy to remove as well but at least (unlike duct) once you get it started the entire strip comes off easier. For your more "tender portions", maybe try some pre-wrap? It's tacky but very gentle, comes in a lovely bright blue color. XD For best hold during the game, you have to put the tape directly onto skin, but after football games we could use it underneath to wrap the players' ankles since they wouldn't be working them as hard anymore. Then the wrap can easily be cut off later, too. ^_^ Anyway, it's just a slightly less disturbing option to paper-pasties... might be worth wandering around the Taj-ma-HEB some night to see what options they've got.

Who needs silicon, baby? ^_^

Thank you!
Thanks :) Hopefully, if I get a lot of work done on it today, I'll take pictures of full-body makeup and hair, too.
