A convention is NOT going to allow you in with live flame on your person. It's a safety hazard for yourself and other con-goers and will most definitely get you kicked out and possibly banned, even if you only light them up for half an hour. Thinking outside the box is great, but you need to be concerned about safety when it comes to conventions. ^_^
Really?... I didn't think flames on hand, especially if it was pre-planned and no one was in range enough to get burnt, would be a big deal. But I guess your right. :/ I have a lot of the material for ordinary x-gloves, aside from the wonderflex, so I guess I'll be an average cosplayer and make normal X-Gloves. Lol. I may be having an art table there for one/two days as well so I guess It shouldn't be that big a deal anyways. ^_^
At a convention you have absolutely no control over people staying out of dangers range--conventions are notorious for fans running up and hugging/glomping without warning, and all it would take would be one overexcited fan girl with a cheap wig for everything to go up in smoke. Security is VERY careful when it comes to potentially dangerous props, don't risk getting kicked out on your first time.
Also, don't submit defeat and say you'll be just average without flames, just commit to making the best costume you can!
And artist alley, right on! What you thinkin' of selling?
I'm thinking of taking commissions there, and if I can finish the first few sample pages for my manga, I'll be... finding some way to advertise besides giving out copies of the pages. That'd be pretty uber expensive. Lol. I'll probably give a link to my DA account and have people give me their name and email if they want to keep up to date on the manga. Something like a newsletter. ^_^
And I most certaintly won't be average. I'll think of something.>
If I can grow my hair a little longer/thicker I may can pull of the Tsuna dew with my own hair!..... maybe. Lol.
I'd rather be stupid and dangerous than boring and dull... Maybe that makes me an idiot, idk.
I'm aware this could be difficult, and I don't plan on running around all day with my hands on fire, but will be a nice add on if I can have the gloves have at least 30 minutes or less of fire resistance.
And honestly I'm not very afraid of getting burnt. XP
You're not doing an impossible cosplay, but you are doing an incredibly stupid and dangerous cosplay. Manufacturing flame-retardent equipment is not a job for amateurs, nor is playing with fire. If you want to avoid third degree burns, then just make normal gloves, and don't use them to handle flames or sparks.
