Amazing work so Far!!!

The print on the boots and the legs are spot on you really are 100% on the mark i think you need to add references so everyone else can see just how accurate it is!!!

Seeing you with a goatee and mustachios will be funny and Jakes face will be even funnier XD

Needless to say i cant wait to see the complete cos

Wow this is looking crazily good already. I love these types of games so much (even really bad ones like Kessen) You're so lucky to be getting a beard!

I have to say when Jake said you were cosplaying a middle-aged man with a beard I wasn't convinced...but you did an amazing job! Your hard work certainly shows and I nearly didn't recognise you lol

Now Hideoshi Toyotomi appeared in the Onimusha series ~ but I think that its just a coincidence ~ Either way the name makes me smile since I LOVE Onimusha and also I LOVE this costume! tres mucho <3

My only concern is how you got through doors^-^;;

Kya! but I'll probably wear Reith in October for one of the balls/ one of the days ~ though I also fancy going as Oyu from Onimusha 2 <33

Sorry to not see you! But theres always October!! ^-------^//

What masterpiece will you out-do me with for then? hehe xoxoxo
