OH LOOK I COSPLAYED TAI

Tai chi

 


Costume Information

General
Cost : £30 I estimate?

Description
Tai my second fave of the digidestined.
I planned on doing this character at the same time I chose to do T.K along with my friend was going to be Matt & Sora/
This also had been started at the same time I was making TK too but sadly got pushed to the side eventually only working on it from time to time when I didn't run out of stuff.

I've gone to hell and back with this simple shirt 8|
I've gone through 2 blue shirts thanks to experimenting with the stars. Sewing Star orange star shape fabric was fail, working with T-shirt transfers for the first time was a lovely nightmare and tore/didn't work out also would crack. So advice from Aokage on what she used for her Tai cosplay of using felt turned out to be the winner.

The wig I've currently got, I'm not overly joyed with.. I think I might purchase a couple of punky's from Coxworx in the future to be shred apart and united as one giant mess of Tai style.

Eventually.. I'll find some use of this cosplay..hopefully wear it one day to a con...or get an awesome photoshoot done with some friends in the future.


EDIT: Oh lordy. I totally haven't done anything with Tai yet! But decided...I'll take him a long TO SOMETHING SOMETIME. NO WAIT... I DID.. KITACON 4.

Wig revived? (Posted 17th March 2012)

I think if I plan on cosplaying Tai in future a new wig is needed. This one has lived in it's bag for two years..and yeah it's not the same. xD;;

Erk Disruption (Posted 23rd September 2010)

Major change in plans for this. I've put Tai on hold so won't be doing it for Friday, Oct's MCM London expo sadly. Thought I've only got some things to complete which shouldn't take a great deal of time. I can't say when I'll be doing this cosplay.

List of things to do:
+ Add yellow buttons
+ yellow detail to Shirt.
+ Hem Sleeves.
+ Make trainers
+ Complete wig.

Complete~ (Posted 17th August 2010)

Everything was pretty much complete over a ...rather slow bases since I wasn't in a rush to get this done for any con or expo.

Wig arrived? (Posted 20th July 2010)

The wig.. it's a punky style wig I bought for it's helpful skills of already defying gravity. It needed a good hair cut from the base.

C: I hate starsss (Posted 19th July 2010)

I've tried and failed with many different star results.
#1)Stars with iron on web ==; (long before I got my sewing machine last)
#2)Tshirt transfer prints suck C:
#3)Fabric failed with Freying edges.
#4)Felt stars XD

Stars (Posted 7th July 2010)

Ripped the fabric stars off as they looked rather shabby ==;;
sooo tempting on putting transfer stars and saves the tricky sewing of stars.

Moving things from the main gallery to here.!
