Description
I've been a fan of Kimahri for a while and haven't seen many Kimahri cosplayers out there. I saw a few going for fursuits and one going for prosthetics, so I decided to give it a whirl myself. It's something that hasn't been done a lot and a new experience for me (This along with my other Amecon 08 outfits are all hand-made by me. Something I haven't done before). Hopefully, it'll all work out in the end!

[UPDATE] This'll also be appearing at Auchinawa 2008, for those that want photographs and can't make Amecon. I got convinced to go after hearing how easy it is to get there.

[UPDATE- 29/03/2008] Well, I changed my mind ^^;; I felt kind of cheap re-doing a cosplay for a different con, so I'm doing Inugami instead at Auchinawa. Still full steam ahead for Amecon, though!

[UPDATE- 8/05/2008] Bought the pattern online, along with the prosthetic and paints for the face. Also, since I seem to have forgotten it, I bought an awesome wig a while ago from GenderConfusedCloud. I've still got a lot to do, but I'm not giving up on it. I simply HAVE to do this, now! So many people are looking forward to it! ^^;; I won't let you guys down!

[UPDATE- 16/05/2008] Pattern's arrived and already, I'm working on the body. It's almost done, just would need a bit of cleaning up around the seams, etc. Also, got the rope and finished the cloth at his waist, too. I'm still unsure about using felt, but given I'm kind of panicking about this cosplay in general, I won't be too picky ^^;; Besides, it gives him that little bit more tribal look, which I think they were going for with him, anyway. Well, time to get back to work!

[EDIT] 27/06/2008 - My money ran out and I can't afford to go to Amecon, so this'll have to wait until next year =/

Thanks! I'm really nervous on this, since a bunch of people are looking forward to it. I might end up with a huge case of stage fright, if this keeps up ^^;;
