|'Dirge of Cerberus' skit planned for masquerade with Ryoaki as Vincent Valentine. |
Costume and prop plans
- I will try to make her gunblade weapon with a functioning spring action mechanism to flick the double blades open.
Also shall experiment with some quick release mechanism so I can stow it across my back and detatch it when I want.
- Armour, planning to make solid armour plate parts and paint with metallic paint.
- Costume material, in artwork ref pics the black parts are rendered with leather type texture. So, some kind of leather look lycra maybe? With reflective blue stripes sewn on.
For the jacket top I like the idea of crushed red velvet.
- wig, oh gosh where to start with this? I might need to buy a lace front wig, or add a lace front to a wig. Swept back hairlines on wigs must be the hardest!
Important Update 1 March 2010:
Unable to do this for May Expo as Vincent can't get his wig commisioned in time, so unfortunately this is now postponed to a future event.
wig for Rosso (Posted 4th April 2010)
I snapped up a lovely Auburn Red wig for this cosplay. It will need a lot of styling to make the front look right, maybe even addition of a lace front. I haven't done any difficult wig styling yet so I'm not sure if I will be able to make it look exact. I will have a go though. But if I can't manage to style it exactly, it looks pretty ok actually even just swept up with hair grips. I'm pleased with this wig already. :)
Planning (Posted 26th November 2009)
Woohoo, found a seller on eBy who does sew on reflective blue tape - shall be able to use this for the glowing blue stripes on the costume. :)
Started looking into the design of Rossos double bladed weapon. Boy that thing is complicated. eg when the blades are open they are dead in line, but when closed they dont clash into each other. They must fold away from the centre line as they close. This is gonna take some clever engineering to make it work...
