Costume Information

Cost : £20-ish
Time Taken : 4 days

This was my failed latex attempt at the ill-fated mangaka from Excel Saga, I left it until the last few days before JapanEx, put in too complicated/unpullable sections in the mould, didn't layer enough latex on, and the result was shredded latex! woo!

Luckily it survived enough to wear without really noticing, but then I discovered under the dodgy lighting in my room, plus losing one of my paint tubes, his hair turned out looking practically ginger instead of dark brown :p Go me.

All in all, about 4-5 people recognized him.. so he got the bag treatment. At least his costume is easily to wear in public and ISN'T A SUIT! Ahem.

This remains one of most the unexpected, and inspired, cosplays I have ever seen.
