I'm cosplaying from We ♥ Katamari this year as Dipp (the all-black cousin with the colorful blinky stars :heart:), so I was wondering if anyone else was doing a Katamari cosplay this year. I'd love to get together with anyone cosplaying from any version, whether you're a cousin, the King or Queen, a random side character, a katamari, or even a mushroom!

Well, I gotta work on my cosplay some more...

::runs squee-ing into thread::

(Heh, double post, but what the heck--it's my thread! :D)

OMG, I just had THE most EPIC idea of how to make...

a no-sew,

lightweight,

custom-designable,

waterproof,

4-foot inflatable katamari!

::huggles me to keep from exploding into an elaborate 3-hour long fireworks display::

Before anyone admonishes me, I know, I know--a prop that is basically a 4-foot sphere would have to be OUTSIDE ONLY.

But I MUST CONSTRUCT IT! I MUST! ::raises a fist of enthusiasm to the heavens::

FOR KATAMARI PRINCE and COUSIN COSPLAYERS EVERYWHERE!!

I shall keep a photo journal for if this goes well.

(Wish me luck!)

My friends and I were going to mess around and kinda make a human katamari down the halls, if you're interested. It would probably just turn into a giant group hug, but we just really wanna see what will happen. Since you are already dressing up, then it would fit in. We'd just have to plan it a bit better.

OH I cant wait to see your Dipp, I saw your video on youtube, and it looks amazing. Actually Im thinking of doing one of the cousins, but not sure which one I want to do. If I could I would do all of them. But I do have a question what are you making the base of the head our of and where could you get it?

At Home Depot, near where they keep the concrete, there is a thing called a pillar pour form. It's basically a four-foot long tube made of compressed cardboard (cheap and easy to use!). Make sure you get one that has little to no water damage; some have it on the ends, but as long as you have two clean feet of tube you should be OK. Get some breakaway blade knives to cut the face out. A 10-inch diameter should suffice for the average person, but I had to use a 12-inch to fit the lighting assembly in there.

I'd say so--even with all the crap I've put inside mine, it's still comfy.

Thank you, I went out and bought the last one they had at the nearest home depot. I did decided to do Marcy from Me and My Katamari style. I will be going to working on that as soon as I get everything for it. When will you be wearing Dipp, I would like to get some pictures together, like you mentioned earlier.

Hey its starting to look great, Im really excited to see Dipp, anyway Im still currently working on mine which for the most part I just need to finish the face and the round ends. I would still like to get some photos with you if you dont mind. Do you still plan on wearing him Friday or Sunday?

Yup, Friday.

Do you still need help for the round ends? I just figured out the perfect material to use about a week ago. I can send you a pattern as well.

Nope did end up using the bowls I bought, which so far have worked out great. Thanks for the offer though. What time on Friday will you be wearing Dipp? I could probably switch around Marcy with my Yuki costume. and possibly switch later that night.

Yeah Marcy is finally finished and is ready to roll-up something. Well I will try and fit her in Friday if you would like to meet-up somewhere for some pics together. Besides that she will be my only costume on Sunday as well.

Alright Sunday is good for me, it kind of works out better, also Im not sure if you will be going to the possible video game meet-up on Saturday, I told them I was going to try and make it for that also. So I may possibly see you there, if you plan on it.

The Katamari photoshoot on Sunday went so well! It was so much fun taking pictures with Cousin Marcy and the Queen of All Cosmos! Here are the pics, for anyone who wants to see.

Thank you, Millions_Knives, especially for stepping up and being my handler. You were so sweet and considerate, and I really appreciated your assistance and guidance.

And most of all...

To everyone who showered Dipp with ridiculous amounts of love and photo ops,

THANK YOU ALL! I'VE NEVER FELT SO ACCOMPLISHED OVER ONE COSPLAY IN ALL MY LIFE!

It was well worth all the scars, the heat, and nearly passing out about five or six times, and I'd gladly do it again.
