Im going to try. The suit wont cost too much, but Im not looking forward to buying yet another wig. You said you would help if you could for July...would you make me/help me with the props if you think I need them? If not no problem!
If there are any props that you personally feel you need and need a hand with, let me know. :D It's up to you what you do/don't want to include in your Leorio cosplay. But, as long as I can, I am willing to help.
I don't know what the silver case on the second shelf is, but it looks to me like it might be alterable into Leorio's suitcase, at least cosmetically, although it might be too small.
In any case, I'll certainly look around here for potential suitcases. Any other props you'd like?
Also, if we don't end up using that black wig I brought for Gon, do you think it could be used for Leorio?
(I brought Kun a black wig I had never used; it's rather a mess right now, but that's because it needs to be straightened. It would have to be cut and styled for Leorio, but it's certainly long enough. We could add the sideburn stubble with pencil [eyeliner-type, not drawing-type].)
Ive always loved his suitcase...so I want it as a prop...if I can. I want to look for some green shades too. I have sunglass clip-ons for my glasses, but they are brown & my glasses are the wrong shape. I CAN not wear my glasses for The Masquerade/Walk-On, provided I dont have to read or catch anything small or such. Im rather near-sighted and semi-blind in my left-eye without them...Killua can be my guide-dog.
The wig might work, and Id REALLY be happy not to buy another wig[Im almost in a panic in regards to coinage]...is Leorio brown though? I think we could style/cut a wig very fast. You will have to bring make-up then (yes let us use a graphite pencil on Sarah's face!). I sent pics of the best bet suit I can buy for $5, is that alright? If so I'll try and buy it Wednesday. I have a shirt&tie. We will discuse more when you call babe!
Actually, I was thinking the same thing about the wig sitting in my room right now. XD I have a feeling I'll end up using my own hair for Gon, so if you want, I can cut and style it for you in time for PortCon for Leorio. I know the feeling of not wanting to buy another wig. x.x;
I know I definitely don't have anything for the glasses (I don't even own a pair of sunglasses), so I'll have to look for those. And if we do glasses-less!Leorio, we'll make sure you won't fall off the stage. Killua will probably be running ahead with Gon, but you can probably hold on to Kurapika. ^^
Leorio's hair is black, so the only issue would be if the wig was too tight on you. In which case we could temporarily dye your hair black and attempt to spike it up if you're willing. Or you can cosplay Killua. As much as it would be nice to have all four main characters, I don't want you to have to go out of your way to get Leorio when you already have Killua.
The jacket looks good, although it appears that Leorio's jacket buttons in the anime are the same blue as the jacket. Either we can just ignore that or replace the buttons. (Also, for some reason the anime jacket is much darker than the musical jacket, although the glasses they used in the musical are practically the same shape as yours, only with darker lenses.) I think the important thing is just that the jacket be approximately the same colour blue as the pants.
I have the make-up, so that's covered. And yes, calling will happen soon! I'm caught up with journals, but am behind in comments and haven't started email/regular mail.
