I have now acquired almost all the supplies I need to get down to some serious costume creation.
Blue and red fabric for the jacket, gold ribbon for the lapels. I borrowed my mom's sewing machine and toolbox, so I can measure Kent and start tracing pieces. (Just as soon as he clears all the True Dungeon tokens off the dining room table. ^_^;;)
I've got my sweet bodysuit for Nia, fits great, just a little tight in the chest. And I'm going to chalk or tape-outline the lines so I (maybe with some help) can paint them with soft fabric paint. I will probably have to do this while I'm wearing it, to ensure that the paint dries to the appropriate dimensions.
Where I'm having real trouble is with wigs.
My favorite Nia wig was out of stock, supposedly to be available again in early April....now? Except I haven't heard back from customer service. The various other alternatives I've managed to find since I canceled my order just don't look as good. Most would require more work to style and/or dye.
Shimon's wig has been more problematic than I expected.
I like this style but it'd be better in this color.
Any advice on wigs?

I think the Neo Angelique would be something you can get away with as "close enough" if you don't want to style/dye it. Early April is still plenty of time for ACen, though. Do they have a phone # you can call?

I would go for the dark blue wig, since you're gonna have to cut/style it anyways. I'd even say you can go darker with the wig... it looks more like an indigo.

This shade (http://www.cosplayfu.com/product/Purple+Wig+%28Medium%2C+Straight%2C+KSP+CF27%29) be better?

Oh, random: If I bring a Feferi shirt and skirt to ACen, would I be able to somehow bribe/lure you into cosplaying with the rest of our Troll group?

LOL.

I suppose. I'll want to get out of the bodysuit for awhile anyway.

Just out of curiosity, how would you bribe me?

Hmmm.... What do I have/can make that you would want? Banana-not-banana? A mini-Cat comic? If I meet this Kevin fella, I could do something about you two together... Any requests?
