Description
i love gene starwind and outlaw star was one of the first anime i ever watched. i tried my best with this costume although i dont know if im as rawdy as the real gene ^^.

i tried to keep the colors as close to how i saw them and how i preferred, the coat was something i really liked and i was able to create the shoulder pads quite simple. finding white belts that worked was a little tricky but i was able to find a red wig that was perfect. the gloves were also fun to make and with a little searching i was able to find just the right materials.

genes caster gun i was a bit unsure about as i wasnt sure the best way to make a weapon so i looked at the shapes and built it from bottles and card with paper mashea and i think it came out pretty dam good.

one day id love to see a good lookin hot ice hilda ^_~

hopefully get some more good photos of this my friend is brilliant at takin them

improvements i need to make are the shoes, shoulder pads, maybe caster and try to get make up for a fake tan im quite a pale guy

Oh wow, I have pictures of your Gene cosplayed saved on my computer for reference for my friends Gene cosplay. Haha.
As I thought yours was THAT awesome.
And it really is.
Didn't know you were from the UK - glad there are lots of Outlaw Star fans in the Uk! Haha.

Seriously though, amazing cosplay.
Specially the caster gun. That must've taken a lot of hard work.

i love my gene starwind cos more than anythin but theres still room for improvment. i may shape the hair and detail the belts as well. shoes id like to make a bit more well made and the shoulderpads i still have to work on. im def cosplayin him again and am gonna try my best to bring together a group.
