Costume Information

Cost : Not 100% as a lot of the clothes I already owned...
Time Taken : I wouldn't say any time was spent as none of it was 'made'

As far as costume-making goes, I made none of this - even if I had the skill, all of the aspects of the outfit were things I either already owned or could be very easily bought, so I doubt I would have seen the point anyway. The most exciting thing I did was cut the wig, but that was it really.

I don't really suit Cain at all; i'm short, i'm not thin and lanky, I don't have a stupidly beautiful face, etc etc...but I love the series, and with Aisha as my Riff and a possible Merryweather soon, I love playing him :)

As a lot of the outfit (coat, waistcoat, shirt, boots) I already owned, I can't say the exact price.
The wig was bought especially for the cosplay and came to around £25ish I think? The colour isn't 100% accurate and it probably ought to be a bit longer in places, but his hair in pictures either looks brown or black, and I opted for brown as I didn't want to be confused with Sebastian from Kuroshijshbaidfbdfkgd or whatever it's called, as they have fairly similar character designs.

I'll be wearing this costume again at October London Expo 2009 with (possibly) Aisha as my Riff and Maddy as my Merryweather ^_^
As Aisha's Riff wig arrived a few days after the expo we last wore it to (hence the dyed hair) this time around it should be better :)
