I normally don’t put side project type costumes in my gallery, but I had so much fun with this costume and got some really good photos taken, I just had to share the costume and the experience.
On Friday night of ACen I was heading back to my room to put on some street clothes and go meet my SH people at the shoot. Because I didn’t have the right equipment for my camera I was kinda bummed cause that’s what I really wanted to do was take photos this year.
When I got back to the room, my roommate Harl was getting into her Gorillaz costume. She was such a cute Noodles, I wanted to go hang out with them for a while. When they realized their Murdoc wasn’t going to be able to attend the shoot, I asked if I could do him to equal out the group.
At the time I was so sleep deprived I was being silly. The entire time I put together this closet cosplay costume I was talking in a horrible british accent and just making fun of myself.
I had a v-neck black tee like Murdoc did in the video. I borrowed pants, boots and jacket from Rex-Dart. The jacket wasn’t Stylo Video accurate, but I was really worried I looked to female, so I put the jacket on to help. The make up is done with Ben Nye. The nose I made out of skin wax. I only had a cellphone photo as a reference for putting on the make up, but I don’t think it turned out so bad. The teeth are foamies we had in the room and I asked Harl to cut for me. The wig is a Jett in Black 064 from Arda Wigs.
This costume was made in literally 30 minutes. And the best part about it was NO ONE RECOGNIZED ME! I freaked people out when I talked because they didn’t know it was me and I had multiple people checking out my badge to believe it. I practically scared the crap out of Bonk! <3
Needless to say. I had a great time in this costume. Would wear again. Actually looking for other little things to add to it for a future con!
