Q-Bee: Darkstalkers by Hopie-chan Q-Bee: Darkstalkers by Hopie-chan
"Your soul looks tasty!"

YAY! I got some San Japan photos back so I can show you guys the costume that I slaved away on! Here's my Q-Bee cosplay from the video game, Darkstalkers!

I chose to do Q-Bee for a number of reasons. I looove her design (just look at that hair!), and her adorable yet creepy look and personality was really interesting to me! Also the fact I'ver worked with scleras for modeling but never for cosplay sealed the deal! My friend Chels put together a group and it was finally time to do the Queen Bee herself!

The wig was a Jareth Long from Arda Wigs that I styled into that crazy updo... DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND START WITH AN ALREADY PIGTAIL WIG! Trust me, it will save you some grief in the long run lol! There is NO foamcore or anything in the wig, it's all just teased and heat-trained into place! The purple fabric is metallic spandex and the yellow is stretch velvet! The wings are made from a wire base and covered in a pretty gold sheer fabric, then fabric painted to give the "insect wing" lines! The bee-butt (which you can't see from this photo) is made from foam and covered in fabric. The antenna are Sculpy! I had a lot of fun and learned a lot making this costume, I plan on wearing her for many cons to come! BUZZ BUZZZZZ

DEAR GOD THOSE EYES OH MY GOD SO SCARY ARRRGH! :iconscaredplz:
*hides* I think that was intentional though (human bees...I don't like bees...no offense) and I'm trying to resist making bee-related puns.
.....Nope.  Not gonna make any puns.

Yeah, her "human" eyes are fake... the real ones are there on the wig. She's an awesome character.

Why is it that I have no idea about the stuff you cosplay?!  I'm starting to feel bad about it!  Wait.  Don't answer that question.  Your sister doesn't like it when I ask too many questions.  Let me just say you're great at cosplaying and I'll just leave it at that.

Well you don't need to say if you know the characters/show/game or not, it's okay if you don't.
