How do you guys make armor for cosplays. I’m fairly new to making cosplay and I want to make some things like clone armor and Isaac Clark armor. Once I know how to make these stuff it also would be easier to make other cosplays I need molds for. I want to make an oblivion song cosplay but I need to know how to make molds and armor for what I want to do. Thanks

I figured out that it must have a name I've heard before based on how buttmad >>10258994 got about it. If they hadn't, then all I would've had to go off of was tiered white OP, which is pretty vague. I've only seen it in red x white before, on LM and in a youtube review of the re-release, which was before my time.

There's a ton of threads about bad photoshops, photog drama and the like. But let's try to do something constructive. Let's discuss something simple, what do YOU think is a good cosplay photograph? If you're going to pay money for a photoshoot, what exactly are you looking for in the finished product? Also, post photos of what you consider as examples of good cosplay photos.

Kinda stupid for cosplay since you're doing portraits, which is one of the few occasions where you can go out with one prime and do it all.

Hell, two primes are really all you need, a 24-70 2.8 is slow, covers at the same time a large part of the focals you don't need (24-30 are really some niche shit) and none of the focals you actually need (85-135) - and a zoom has shitty bokeh, too, which is one of the bigger selling factor for work (people love creamy bokeh).

You could go out with a 35 and 85 and do it all much better. A 24-70 is for run and gunning a wedding or stuff like that.

>>10248612
Work for money, shoot cosplay for passion, charge for cosplay once you have the funds.
I started with a 450d and a nifty fifty, I moved on in time (7d and 18-35 1.8, 100mm 2.8 macro, 5d II and 24-35 f/2, 135mm f/1.8... then 5d IV.) but it took years, it's normal, and I've earned all my photography money from other stuff (clubs, events, etc.) - cosplay is pretty dry money wise, and I'm not moving my ass for a shoot for less than 120€ which is already not that much at all.

I am looking for a wide angle lens to use with my crop sensor camera and torn between Sigma 10-20mm and Tamron 10-24mm

Sigma:
>has constant aperture

Tamron:
>has image stabilization
>can zoom in more
>slightly cheaper

What do y'all think?
>>
>>10259055
I had a Sigma 10-20, the model without constant aperture though, and I didn't like it. In any case, the Sigma lenses are old as hell and from a time where Sigma wasn't very good.

The Tamron lens should be okay. I would also consider the Sigma 8-16 lens, which is a very interesting one.

If you want to do portraits with it, you will be hard pressed to find use for anything wider than 18mm - and honestly wide angle portraits should be taken sparingly, they're not that good usually - so I would suggest the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 if your intention is to do cosplay photography with it.
>>
>>10259239
Thanks! I'm actually planning to do bunch of stuff with it. Using 10mm for travel-landscape-architecture, 15mm for cosplay action shots and 20mm for packed space portraits where my 50mm doesn't cut it. It'll be more like 16-32mm on my crop sensor camera so I'm not that worried.

Can we have a general improvement thread

I agree that the belt could be better, but i don't think you need to go with foam. Use two layers of pleather and maybe some interfacing to make actual belts with some structure and i think you'll be fine. What's with the foam obsession when fabrics and fabric-like materials will work just fine, if not better?

We haven't had one in a little bit and people might be looking at their next year lineups, so figured I'd start one.

You must give at least three suggestions to others before posting and asking for suggestions of your own (unless there aren't three people to give suggestions to yet, obviously).

>>10247817
You'd definitely shine as Byleth or Felix. I think Sandalphon is a great choice too though. Other than those three, you'd make a great Joker from Persona.

>>10248251
Definitely Muffet! She has a great mix of that cutesy but creepy vibe. Kaguya from Kaguya-sama Love is War, Ryuko from Kill La Kill, Makise from Stein's Gate, and Moka from Rosario + Vampire would fit in with your aesthetic well.

>>10252011
Chie 100%. Your 2B picture evokes some Bayonetta vibes for me. I could also see Pit, or Link from Smash (and their respective series), or Sora / Roxas / or Ventus from Kingdom Hearts.

>>10252681
Hm, that's a tough one. Your suggestions are both good, but hopefully I can give you something you'd be more passionate about. Almost all of these suggestions would require straightening out your wig though.. If you watch anime, there's Yona from Yona of the Dawn, Shirayuki from Snow White with the Red Hair, Chise from Ancient Magus Bride, Madam Red from Black Butler, or Red Blood Cell from Cells at Work. If you don't, there's Kairi from Kingdom Hearts or Lilth from Boderlands. Best of luck! If you feel trapped by the wig, you should consider selling it second hand.

If you have no expectations, you can't be let down. Trying to be friends with someone you are attracted to is playing with fire. Not everyone gets burnt, but the odds are not in your favor.

>Why are people like this.
A lot of people are worse than what they give off. SHE is like THAT. Maybe YOU are like THAT as well. Not saying you are, but introspection is good.
Other fish in the vast oceans, good luck man.

That's the thing, I know what my position is and I can't shake it off completely. Just trying to make the best outcome I can see without putting myself further in a downwards spiral.

>A lot of people are worse than what they give off. SHE is like THAT. Maybe YOU are like THAT as well. Not saying you are, but introspection is good.
Other fish in the vast oceans, good luck man.
I'm absolutely open to criticism myself, but nobody ever bring my actions up, and it makes me anxious I'm doing something wrong, or that they're just *trying* to be nice.I hate it, and I really wish I can just give that whole mentality a bullet. Alas, I still need to leap the hurdles to reach the finish with that battle.

By all means, I'm not trying to deflect your advice, I really am taking it on board. Chances are I already know what my problem is and the solution needed; its just so hard to work towards it when you count on others to help you out (ironically, bit of a loop forming). Although I despise the bastards, apologies if this is all coming off as being too /r9k/tier 'venting'
