oh the wrongness...
I figure I'm probably going to do some random chuunin type as a hall costume at the next ACen 'cause heck I know how to do the things, and I'm too undeniably red-headed to pass for tan-and-brunette Iruka OR ash-gray Kakashi. Even with a wig, there's some basics like complexion, eyelashes, eyebrows, hands, etc that it'd take a lot of makeup to get around, and lots of makeup + crowded building = chance of rubbing off on someone.
But even so, I REALLY want to convince a friend of mine to do Orochimaru as a hall costume one of these days. She was HikaGo's Sai last year and used her own hair for it. She wouldn't need to do anything to her hair to have Orochimaru down. And the outfit's amazingly simple (black turtleneck, tan tunic, wiring the froofy purple thing would be the trickiest part).
So why is it I most want to convince her to do Orochimaru one of these days?
So I can make her a stunt tongue, of course.
Because that's SO not a costuming detail I'd ever thought about before... and because it'd be hilarious to be able to put "stunt tongue" on my costume design resume... ^____^
I'm such a moron. Back to trying to get writing done... the thing is I'm sick and am whacked out on cold meds...
