Deuce Gorgon Cosplay 1 by DuplicitousDichotomy Deuce Gorgon Cosplay 1 by DuplicitousDichotomy
Edit: This won MHD's 2011 Cosplay Contest in the Talent division! Thank you so much to everyone on MHD who voted for it, I'm so excited!!!

This is the Deuce Gorgon cosplay I made for Halloween this year. A bit late of an upload, I hadn't thought to put it on here until recently. XD

Original MHD description:

'Deuce suffers the plight that every male fashion doll does... He's forever cursed to be a supporting character. It's part of the reason I wanted to cosplay him, so he could take center stage for once! I adore Deuce, he's such a sweetheart, and he and Cleo were the first MH dolls I bought. (In case any of you are confused by the pictures, I am in fact a girl. I bind my chest down to cosplay male characters. XD)

This costume, or rather, the hair was ridiculous to make. I was very sick with a stomach flu while making it and still dragged myself out of bed every day for a week to cut and stitch on each individual scale. (The snakes, too. Two destroyed needles and a stabbed thumb later and I never want to attempt sewing plastic/rubber ever again. XD) Overall the hair alone took probably 10+ hours and is sprayed with a pearlescent sealant to give it that extra snakeskin shine~ Not that you can tell. But I tried.

Everything else is altered and hand-painted, even the glasses. (I couldn't find red ones, so I painted my silver ones with red OPI nail poilsh... The cassette tape on the belt is also painted with nail polish.) I was going to forego the vest until I saw all the other good costumes and decided I just couldn't do Deuce justice without his vest, despite a non-existent budget! XD It's actually a heavily altered t-shirt with stripes painted on (can you believe how hard it is to find anything with a gray and white stripe?? Impossible! And the craft stores don't even carry gray fabric paint!). I added a zipper and a collar made of faux snakeskin, and quilted the bottom edge of the shirt. I think it came out pretty nice.'

Hey - I just want to say that your excellent job at creating a Deuce Gorgon costume helped me with some of the elements of my own that I did for Halloween this year. There aren't a lot of resources for adult MH costumes around, so good work and thanks for the inspiration. Some of my costume pics are on flickr at:
