Vacationing with the Monarchs by xHee-Heex Vacationing with the Monarchs by xHee-Heex
Alright, so, how to say this...

I LOVE the Venture Brothers.

Seriously, that show is brilliant. Every character is likable, nearly every joke hits home, and the writing is witty, engaging, and sometimes TEAR-ENDUCING. UGH. And, as is usually the case with me and mah shows, all of my favorite characters are middle-aged men. The Monarch in particular! I'd always wanted to cosplay him, but I just don't have the body type, facial structure, anything. Even back when MySpace was around, I kept a photo of him in my Cosplay To-Do list, just as a reminder of dreams that could never be. ;~;

...then I stopped giving a poop about stuff like that.

Colossalcon was coming up, and not only was it going to be held at an awesome waterpark resort, but I was finally going to meet my buddy Solo-dono! She's just as into Venture Brothers as I am, and I decided to just say SCREW IT and make the jump into a chicken-legged, tall, slender-faced villain with the voice of an angel who'd just been kicked where the sun don't shine.

I made a latex nose the same way I made my Simon prosthetic, used Worbla for the base of his beard and eyebrows (so that they could set flush to my face), purchased some bucked teeth, sewed me up a bathrobe in yellow and black and attached MIGHTY MONARCH EMBLEMS to fuzzy black slippers and DONE- a casual Monarch perfect for the resort! I don't have the figure for that skin-tight bodysuit (at least not a MAN'S figure in a skin-tight bodysuit), though if I can figure a solution out for that, I would love to cosplay a few of his outfits in the future.

BUT I DIGRESS. No, I'll never be the perfect Monarch (or even an ACCURATE Monarch) to go around terrorizing Ventures, but I really did have fun with this despite it's errors and I'm sure I'll talk myself into wearing it again. x3 ...once I can get some platform shoes.

Note: A big thank you to Miss Mallo Photography for fixing a bit of my blending work around the prosthetic in editing. I need to practice doing that SO MUCH MORE. I really flubbed it at Colossalcon. :C

Okay, so. Question time. I'm about to venture (ha, oh God, I couldn't resist. I'll stop) into my own Monarch costume, and I was wondering with your hood how you got the shape outlining the face to stay that way. Is it wire, some sort of interfacing keeping its shape, spirit gum, voodoo...? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
