Basic costume for Halloween this year.
« on: September 15, 2017, 10:16:14 pm »
I decided why not and found these on Amazon:
I need a small amount of body paint for my hands but I am going to look around town for that. Maybe Wal-Mart might have something.
I'm on a budget, so any comments/suggestions before I drop $40 on this stuff?

Tbqh I'd choose the second link because the costume in the first link is cringeworthy...

I'm buying the constume for the outfit, not the mask. I'll probably just paint my face and hands because the costume has a long-sleeve elastic undershirt. I'll still have to wear the pants (which the tail is attached to)...
Anyway, I'll see what kind of budget things I can get.

Ok, new situation. I need a good but cheap set of prosthetic Na'vi ears. Preferably from Amazon (I have Prime Student). Can't find any.
Suggestions?

Halloween cosplay  :P Fingers crossed.

  • Hairs - looks OK at pictures. They are cheap and may be awful at close distance. But for first cosplay I will chose them and not think much about about quality, only length matters.
  • Dagger - also OK, but personally i'll try to make a bow and hang it over my back.
  • Full body suit - hope you chose Ney style rather than Jake style. I mean that blue legs looks better than army shorts.
  • Tail included in body suit - nope. IMHO tail should be done like this: LINK or better
  • Hands - depend on weather condition (temperature) at Halloween, painting looks better but paint may wear out. Blue fabric gloves looks worse but it's easier match color and texture of body suit. Plus gloves allows you to hide one finger  8)
  • Prosthetic ears - IMHO only for elves. Na'vi ears are located higher thus any prosthetic will not match. I'll try to make ears out of paper or plastic, then attach them to hairs or plastic headband. Off course real ears painted black and covered by hairs.
And not forget about jewelry, ie. something like this: https://geekdad.com/2017/05/pandora-chic-navi-inspired-jewelry-crafts/

    Are these any good?

    https://www.amazon.com/Avatar-Deluxe-Na-Makeup-Kit/dp/B003L5CUT0/ref=pd_sim_193_8?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B003L5CUT0&pd_rd_r=546Q8SMBX4QJQP9EGPZ3&pd_rd_w=0VtFq&pd_rd_wg=X65bW&psc=1&refRID=546Q8SMBX4QJQP9EGPZ3
    Added to cart.  :)

    I already ordered the first three, mainly because I wanted to get the biggest size available in men's. It comes from overseas so I just want to be sure it's big enough for me. (I'm 6'3"/190.5cm tall. I don't exactly trust "standard size" from overseas. The Jake one was "Extra Large," so I wanted to make sure.)
    Anyway, I can tough out the cold with paint on my hands and face. The mask? Might use it to scare people.
    I know this cheap cosplay would make you guys cringe, but I'm on a budget and my $40 order is pushing it.

    Wow.

    If you're really unsure about the size you can still buy the accessories and look for spare clothes in the closet. You can dress like Jake or Norm for instance.

    That's what I'm doing. I have to wear the khaki pants but I can really wear any shirt I want.

    It look's perfectly fine for Halloween, IMHO.
    Just needs some ears and make up.

    Tswin, kxetse, and pants looks great. Top are too loose, especially blue part.
    As archaic mention, ears and teeth are missing.

    IMHO You can cut blue part of sleeves, reduce size and reuse it. Make tight blue sleeve and loose gray one. Try to achieve similar effect to this:


    P.S. Next time taking photos, hide pinky toe behind phone ;)

    Possible justification for having five fingers and toes .....


    Na'vi, correct number of fingers and toes, but probably wouldn't wear clothes like that (under normal circumstance).

    Avatar, would were those clothes, and have the extra fingers and toes.

    Yes archaic, we know. But 4 fingers looks better than 5, even without costume and makeup.
