    Hello everyone, I'm new to these forums and I'm planning to Cosplay as Painwheel for halloween. I may need some help.

    For anyone that specializes in Arts & Crafts I plan on cosplaying Painwheel this Halloween and would like some tips and suggestions on some materials, where to get them etc.
    Such as:
    Mask Making
    That tarp clothing she has.
    Beur Blade. - I'm considering either Card Board or Styrofoam (Good Quality) for that. As for attachment no clue.

    TTN: (Things to Note)
    1. Yes I know Painwheel is a girl character and I'm a guy. Doesn't mean a guy can't cosplay as a girl?
    2. Painwheel is practically naked so I'm not doing that either, I need to shave my legs.
    >.<
    3. The materials are some what common I believe. I can get some supplies but I'm not sure what to make the mask. (Micheals, Home Depot [Styrofoam], Walmart etc.)
    4. That clothing she has? No clue how to make or get one.

    Yeah. Anyone else planning to Cosplay for Halloween?

    Here's a couple of interpretations:


    For a closer look at the Zerggiee Painwheel, here's some other angles on flicker: one, two, three

    dress = I suggest a sturdy cotton that you can rough up the edges. Buy two aprons and sew them back to back for a quick dress form.
    mask = spray paint brown a hockey mask or off-the-shelf Halloween mask (like Spider-man) and then style in the stitches, add red lenses
    Gae Bolga = one of the toughest parts. If I was short on time, I'd cut the blades out of thick cardboard, paint it, and affix it to a tiny backpack, ignoring the metal "spine"
    skin = paint your veins and blacken your finger nails
    shackles = fabric cuffs or modeled cardboard
    feet = Painwheel is shoeless, but I'd go for comfort rather than authenticity. Find some slip-ons that match your skin tone, like ballerina shoes

    Hello everybody!

    As my favorite character is Miss Fortune, I'd like to share you my cosplay of her.
    I decided to make her in her original colours, because I love her redhead! :)

    I found what I think was an original artwork, and the colours were like that. I don't like the blue/white colours of the actual Miss Fortune. ^^ Thank you so much, I'm glad you like my work, and that you want to check my page! :)

    So while I'm getting the Beur Blade for my Painwheel Cosplay, I had the thought for the Metal Spine she has. I know I'm running low on time since its 13 more days until Halloween starts, any ideas/help anyone?

    Also what's the best place to get a Bague color Apron? Plain colors and what not as well long enough too. I literally went to multiple stores: Dollar Tree (x2) , Big Lots, Macy's, Sears, JCPenny, Francisco's Halloween Shop and other 1 Dollar Marts and found nothing. Hell not even the Hockey Mask I needed!

    If that seems unobtainable, what fabric is best to use?

    Update: I finished one of the blades, I'm going to sand out the edges a little to make it a little more smoother before working on the next ones.

    A bit of PVC pipe painted grey and red MIGHT work, unless you want it moving around.

    So I just finished on all 4 blades, now I need to obtain some Silver/Grey Spray paint and get them colored. I figured I'll paper mache the mask. It shouldn't take too much time in all honesty. Only final problem is the Red Lense and the Clothing she has. I dunno what to do.

    Just in case you're not aware, many spray paints will eat foam. The blade looks to be foamcore, so you'll want to seal the edges with some white glue. For the styrofoam ball mentioned in the link a mixture of water and white glue should work.

    The other option I've used has been to use duct tape (or something similar) before painting. A buddy has also used cloth before. If you find the right color, you can tape it down tight enough to look clean

    Thanks for that tip, didn't know that. I just grabbed a spray paint can from Michael's called: Krylon: Color Master and Shortcuts.
    Also the Blades are made out of Elmer's Foam Boards, they're like thick paper outer side perfect for spray paint while super thick foam on the inside.

    Says its good with foam so I can't be too sure. However if that's still the case I'll do what you said, I'm going attach them all together then spray paint the whole thing, I forgot about one blade and already spray painted one side.
    EDIT: I found about the spray paint, its usually cause when it 'eats' the foam, the spray paint is too much for the styrofoam to handle, what's best is to spray from a short distance so its not so close of a spray. I found a video here:


    Most of my friends recommended/suggested using that Party Table Cloth, tape 2 together and cut into a drape that Painwheel has.

    Usually the problem is the propellant the spray uses. If the can says its foam-friendly you're probably good, but try it on a scrap piece first to be sure. I used to make a lot of Warhammer 40,000 terrain so I've run into this a fair bit.

    Foam board is good stuff.

    So I'm currently making the mask right now and its still a work in progress using paper mache. I did lots of progress and still need to add more layers before attempting to pop the balloon and paint it. I'm assuming if its too big for my head/face I can simply trim it a little. Right? I never paper mache'd a mask before in my life.

    As for the blades, I spray painted them Grey, This cosplay work is going nicely.

    I really love beowulf and i desided to make a wulf hood I have the belt and furry leg things done but you can imagine how simple they look so i thought that just the gem of the costume should be shown. So please give me feed back on my work, thanks!

    Thank you! I've done my best with what i had, believe it or not it was a foam alligator hat i found at a dollar store but after a bit of mods and fabric it became the wulf hood.

    I agree they look like average cosplay to me. That seemed a bit mean and judgmental.

    WOW that is awesome!!

    Amazing!

    Aw that's cute/sweet ^_^ (and just a little sad). Great job though!

    Also that double is possibly the coolest thing. I've wondered how someone would go about that!! ^_^

    Oh god now I want Painwheel's sequel story mode to revolve around trying to be nice to people, defending the weak, and offering cookies. Nicely done!

    Uh, support Indivisible's cosplay contest so that can happen, I guess!

    Hello! I'm new to posting to this forum, but I've popped by a couple times to see if I could find a few tips. Unfortunately, not what I needed, hence the post ^^"

    Anyway, for a convention in May this year, my boyfriend and I plan on cosplaying Squigly and Beowulf, respectively. My main problem is the skull chest piece and bottom skirt hem, while for him we're trying to look into how to make the wolf hood sine we've never tried anything like this before. I've scoured the Internet to find tips for my skirt, but haven't found terribly much. It's also my first time requiring makeup for a different skin color, so this should be interesting lol

    I'm almost halfway done with my Squigs, but we have yet to start on his Beo because he's currently working more hours than I am and we both need a little bit of a workout before either of us are ready for any of this.

    Any help is appreciated ^^
