Description
My first true cosplay. I chose to make anti-sora since it is the darkest form which needs much more love.

Easiest parts would have to be ...none of it! Every component was a challenge on its own. But hardest by far were the shoes; I chose to make them in the most ridiculous way ever which I shall certainly be avoiding if I am to repeat sora again.

When I wore this to Mcm 2009, it was AGONISING! The weather was beautiful, I oculdn't say it was the best choice of cosplay at all. Black + mask = me sweating buckets. You lot are fortunate I had a mask to hide my face xD not a pretty sight.

To improve this cosplay some day, I want to remake the whole costume in a more proffessional manner; it was all rushed to the very last second! Also I might consider investing in a zentai suit, or just better black makeup so it doesnt rub off... or just NEVER wear it in summer again! All valid methods.

You look AMAZING! I love seeing Anti-Sora cosplays, you've captured it brilliantly well. I'm gutted I missed this! If you ever wear it out again I will definitely be snapping up a few photos of you~

Curious question, the mask's eyes, were you able to see out of them?
if So may I ask how you did this? :P

@zane

I can say yes and no! The first day I wore the mask and eyes, I couldn't see a thing! (just out the corners of my eyes) and had to be lead around when in busy areas.

But I made ammendments to the eye placement, slightly seperating them from the middle so I had a larger gap to see through in the inner corners of my eyes. No need for help on sunday! Also it helped that the electroluminescent eyes had a small seethrough rim, giving me more hidden viewpoints.

ah I see, I might try something like that for my Kamen Rider cospaly, I was thinking of mixing Resin with paint but I dont that'll be healthy ^^;

You need something seethrough? I would usually suggest a translucent acyrlic and vacuum form it, but not many people have access to one of those XD

I dount I can hardly pronounce that let-alone be able to use one lol.
Maybe I should try a motorcycle visor maybe?

Yup I was going to suggest something like that if you didn't get the last comment > < basically, be on the lookout. A toy visor would probably be easier to cut. When in doubt, I usually go to poundland and have a look, since they have all sorts of toys/containers that are nice and cheap to cut up.
