Wow awesome cosplay!! could you walk well?
Reply
:icontarapotamus:
Tarapotamus Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012
truth be told, I could NOT walk! But that's the price you sometimes must pay for an accurate and awesome cosplay. I had a wheel chair, and also 2 strong men to carry me around which were :iconnegativedreamer: and the hubby of :icontifaia:

I will use crutches the next time I wear this.

Maybe you could try the zipper method for doing mermaid tails that can be walked in? If it unzips up the back of the tail to the knees then it opens up enough to allow you to walk, and can be zipped back down to make it skin-tight again.

Love these strange mermaid characters! :D Great job on this cosplay!

The problem with that is the giant (and heavy) latex fin has to be on the back of the tail. There is no way for me to walk in it without my feet showing. I thought about making a slit in the bottom of the tail so I could slip my feet out and hike it up but then Id have to carry around a 15lb latex tail and I did not want any feet-showing hallway pictures at any conventions XD I'm hardcore like that. I actually have another slightly mermaid-esque character planned for the future so keep an :eye: out! :D

time for a REMAKE! Years and years ago I made a Lulu costume and never got any pics and then decided to redo it, and I'm glad I did! THIS time I will keep the costume forever and also take lots of pics, hehe

Cosplay is definitely your calling Tara. Watching all of the stuff you have made over the years, you just keep getting better and better!
Seeing you in this costume makes me think you'd make an awesome Zora too.
