Costume Information

Cost : around £25 for 1st version, £24 for improving, total £49

Original purple costume worn at London MCM Expo October 2008, was also worn at Mankai (I can't remember which year) and Japan Expo Paris in 2010.
I'm finally getting round to redoing this costume into a correct blue version, which I am hoping to make for Manchester MCM Expo/Comic Con July 2015.
So this includes: making a blue cloak that will hopefully look better than my original (it was the first cosplay that I had sewn anything for), redoing the boots in the blue fabric, making blue wristbands and I also decided on redoing the gems, by actually resin casting most of them (as I couldn't find a suitable 30mm shalow dome mold) and using worbla & foam for the yellow backs.
Also worn at Tokonatsu 2015.
