...IN THE UNIVERSE!!!!

FINALLY! Long awaited photos of my Vegeta and *Weatherstone's Nappa! When I first discovered what 'cosplay/crossplay' was, I immediately knew that cosplaying Vegeta would one day happen -- he is my childhood favourite, I love the angry men! And last year at Sakura con we met the Japanese seiyuu for Vegeta (very awkwardly in an elevator -- I was dressed as Xanxus on my knees helping my Squalo with their shoes, so I was basically fangirled to his waist/groin/legs... can you say AWKWARD!) but after that it became official that I would cosplay Vegeta and *Weatherstone agreed to shave his head and be my Nappa! *squeee*

Both cosplays were made by me, but I would like to thanks my Awesome Mom for helping with handsewing and *kolibri-chan for helping as well.

Vegeta, prince of Saiyans : myself
Nappa, the invincible : :iconweatherstone:
Photog, the epic : :iconphotopanda:

So, what was the process for making the armor and Nappa's boots if I might inquire?

I'm impressed and hoping to attempt to replicate it.

This is easily the best I've seen.

Why thank you!!!!

The armor and the boots are both made with vinyl sewn with a sheet batting in-between (which gives it the 'puffy' texture).
The armor also has wire sewn into the white bias on the shoulder pads to give them shape.

Basically, we're both wearing vests underneath (with zippers in the back) and then the shoulder pads/chest is one piece that goes ontop and is attached with snaps.

Boots are just boot covers with zippers on the side, made with vinyl.

I hope that makes sense!?
Let me know if you have anymore questions or specifics! :)

Sorry for the late reply. I re-did this wig a couple of times actually. I sewed extensions into the front to make the widows peak and added wire for shape. And as for styling its mostly hairspray and a hair dryer to make it really solid. You have to style it, spray it and then hair dry it all while holding it in place! Hope that helps! :)

hey, thanks for the reply :) im gonna order a wig soon, i assume you bought a regular wig and styled that. ill keep your tips in mind, and ask for further assistance if i get stuck :> thanks!

oh, one other question, sis you make the scouter yourself?

thanks~!

:iconjj-dreamworldz:
jj-dreamworldz Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
No prob. I bought a 'punky' style wig.. so the hairs already stick up.. it helps with styling...
I actually bought the scouter off of ebay.. pretty good price (and it makes scouter noises!!!)

Yeah there is a set of scouters that are like $300 because they're walkie-talkies... I really REALLY wanted them!

Best Vegeta wig I have seen!!! Good job you two!! :D Though I think Vegeta's little whatchamacallit hair thing (is it called a Widows Peak???) could be a little shorter. It seems too close to the middle of the eyes. But other than that, ITS AWESOME!!!

Well unfortunately (or fortunately) my forehead isn't as endless as Vegeta's. But i wanted the widows peak to be much more obvious then how other people have done it.
