Going to a con today and I thought I'd share my costume! http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/28/cff3557c15171213815ec8c67a2db207.jpghttp://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/28/8935e02460482375831c1566b743f947.jpg

Love it! Where'd you get the awesome leggings? I've been looking for a pair like that.

Bought the leggings from AliExpress for about $10. Took a month to come in.... BUT WORTH IT. They're so comfy!

Thanks! The gold and black scales are from a "Little Mermaid" temp tattoo set from Hot Topic. ^.^

I had such a blast today! I won second place in the costume contest for creativity, had an author give me a copy of his book for free because he liked my costume, had a TON of pics taken (one by a newspaper), and got some new baubles for the costume. As soon as I get pics I'll post em. You can't see my tank and facemask in these pics, I had a "breathing tank" witha jellyfish and a "breathing mask" with tubes from the mask to the tank.

Is it wrong that my favorite part about your costume here is that there's not a bunch of gears placed everywhere for no apparent reason? Seriously well done though.

Haha, i hate it when they do that too. Just seems so silly. (I do have a gear as part of my tattoo on my chest, but it's very subtle).

Here's a few more photos. I've only got my mask on in one or two, but it's because I'm (unfortunatly) allergic to it. It has latex in it so whenever it got too irritating I took it off. :( I'm planning on making a different one out of leather or something similar.

Have you considered using craft foam as an option that's less budget painful than leather for it?

^yep! For my bird doctor mask to make it look leathery I got craft foam, made it steamy, then I pressed down crumpled tinfoil and painted it
