Ah shit nigga, I'm going there too! That con is like only 15 mins away from my hometown.
Ayo, for anyone wondering how to pull off a Hisao/Kenji cosplay with the pants and dress coat , just go to any Goodwill or second hand store and buy a pair of green dress slacks (something light green in color) as well as the dresscoat* and DO NOT buy off of those shitty cosplay "Made in China" bullshit websites. Seriously, believe me on this one. Bonus points if you get a scar like Hisao.
*For the dresscoat, you can have a friend who's good with sewing mod the jacket by adding the green cuffs (make sure they match the color tone of the jacket) and adding the white trim.
Hello, I've never cosplayed before and I'll be going to a con this December with my boyfriend and he wants me to dress as Hanako. I have mid-length red hair, so obviously I'll have to get a wig, but are there any other suggestions I could get from my fellow KS fans? Especially on the burns... I have no idea how I'm going to pull that off.
Are you cosplaying as School girl Hanako or Casual Hanako? If Causal Hanako, that's a simple closet cosplay with the pants and coat. The shirt, you can maybe get a nice dresss shirt and mod the neck of the shirt to her design but normally, I think you can get a dress shirt that she wears in that style at any Goodwill store.
For the facial scars, if you are not allergic to latex, you could use liquid latex (found at any hardware store) to mold up some realistic scars but usually I've seen this used only for like battle wound and zombie scars so I don't know how this could work for burn scars (I've seen a YouTube video of this dude using some kinda make-up for Two-Face scars but this was years ago)
Anyway, if you guys need more suggestions, these guys can provide more than what I could ever dream of:
Just try to ignore the faggotry on both forums however.
