|Time Taken :||10 hours maybe? Didnt count...|
|This was a costume made for and worn to the Manchester anime society Xmas Cosplay Party.|
Pretty simple in terms of overall complexity (as it concentrated on certain key points) although I only had time to get it about 90-95% complete.
Beat is the main character for the game Jet Set Radio, Which I enjoyed and was one of my favourite games a few years ago. THe cell shaded graphics really had a style that is difficult to forget.
The cans of spray paint - I appropriately used snow spray (as it was after all a xmas party...)
The skates were probably the most awkward part - Requiring various modifications and paintwork to be applied. I also put green leds on the underside to make them stand out a bit more.
If reworn I would probably redo the shades as they are not the exact shape, the green lenses would also need to be redone better as well.
It did illicit the reaction I wanted as a "retro" blast from the past however. Although I will need to some more practice on the skates in the future...
