Bayonetta

Cosplayer: Alyx

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

28th May 2010: ... IT ....IS COMPLETE!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKK *prays it all works out*

27th May 2010: Well.... I am almost there!! I have 4 COMPLETE guns!! And all there is left to do it sew the last chain on the leg!!! WHOOP!! I must admit i tried everything on earlier.. and it was... painful to say the least.. its very tight... very hot.. impossible to walk in, and all in all... gonna be a challenge.. i hope i can manage!! EEKK ITS SO CLOSE!! So many people are looking forward to this and im REALLY feeling the pressure, i hope i can deliver!!!!!

26th May 2010: Gun shoes and Light at the end of the tunnel!! Right... today is my last day of working on the costume, so it has t be finished today!! And you know what? I really think i'm gonna do it!!! Only a lil bit more to go!!! AND I HAS MY GUN SHOES!!! THEY LOOK EPIC... and thyre an epic MISSION to walk in! But its all worth it!!

20th May 2010: hmm.. I was just told by a French Kid on dA about my Make up test.. to "try and redo it better" ... nice!!

5th May 2010: EEKK!!! Ok.... so.. PANIC!!! There is well less than a month now, And i'm having a few issues.. Since i last tried on the catsuit on.. it seems my bust has grown, and it looks DANGEROUS... if not a little slutty!! ANd there is no way a backless Bra is going to work, SO i'm thinking i may not be able to have the catsuit backless. It wont be perfect, but its that or embarassment!!! ><

I also just got stuck in the catsuit... COMPLETELY COULDNT GET OUT!! my mum had to come and rescue me!! now that the straps are on the arms, i literally cannot move in it!...which SUCKS!!!

I hope i can get this all sorted out in time. I also still have 3 guns to finish, one of which isnt even paper mache...d..? (spelling.. not a clue) Anyway.. its not even ready for paint. so yeah.. PANIC!!!!!!!

30th April 2010: RAAAGGGEEE!!!! ... *ahem* Ok... so i figured that for this journal update.. it would be easier to just copy and paste my facebook updates for the day.....

Starting from calm.. and ending in RAGE!!

Alexandra Streater is thinking... maybe a complete Scarborough fair today??? ... perhaps!

Alexandra Streater is getting more and more annoyed and disappointed with her Bayonetta guns :(

Alexandra Streater
AND WHY THE F*CK DOES IT HAVE TO START RAINING JUST AS I WANT TO USE SPRAY PAINT!!!! ARGGHH!!!!

Alexandra Streater F*CKING RAGE!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS ORANGE JUICE EVERYWHERE ASWELL NOW!!!!! INCLUDING THE GUNS!!!!!!!! ><

Alexandra Streater Okay so... it stopped raining so i thought id see if i could get a little spraying done... but because of the frikkin humidity its caused the paint to bubble.... fucking BUBBLE!!! ><

Alexandra Streater And now... I Have to sit holding this Frikkin thing, balanced on 2 ruddy wooden spoons!!! ARGH!!! COSPLAY!!!!!!!! * points to picture *

..... That pretty much sums it up.....

But one gun is now complete... after all of that, And i feel SO MUCH BETTER!!

12th April 2010: Update! Right well... it is now.. *thinks* under 50 days until expo!!! WAHOOO!!! The costume is coming along well. I havent been able to take photos of anything lately becuase my camera is broken :( But basically all i have left to do is the guns!! So i'm very happy. I'm going to do a hair test soon, as it is now all together, i wanna wear the hair piece for a day just to make sure it will stay put. Its all secure, its just attaching it to -my- hair thats the issue lol. I'll only be pissed off if it wobbles all the time at expo! lol. So yeah apart from that, and getting something to support my boobies.. ITS ALL GOOD :D *does a happy dance*

27th March 2010: YIPPIE!!!!! Today I have been a busy little bee!!! Today I have... in about 3 hours managed to make the other 3 guns!! WAHOOO!! oh oh AND i managed to complete my shoes and make the attachments look patent!!! AND managed to do most of the gloves!! AND make the straps for the sleeves of my catsuit!! IM SO FRIKKIN CHUFFED!! :D :D :D

24th March 2010: GUNS! ARGH! Right... well today I thought that i would start to make my guns... but little did i know how hard it would be! i have never made a prop before... ever, and i think i jumped into this a bit too confident.. anyway.. saying that its not going too bad *touches wood* And im sure it will abe alot easier when i have a glue gun, because doing this with PVA is IMPOSSIBLE!!!

So here is a picture to show how big it is in comparison to the midget replica! I really wanted thses to look a bit chubby and ovesized, althought because i'm so short, and a little round... i think i'm gonna look more like a Chibi Bayonetta!! HAHAHA

23rd March 2010: At last some progress!!! Well... i never knew that cutting a 2m plastic waste pipe would be so damn hard!!! but i'm so glad ive done it!! because now i can start on the guns!! MWAHAHAHAHAH!!! I've really been looking forward to this. The pipes are a little messy at the moment.. they needed the ends sanded, but they really are the perfect size! I really want these guns to be huge and over the top! So now i have the pipes, and the foam!! and i can get MAKING!!! :D

15th March 2010: *weeps* ToT Wahhhhh I havent been able to make any progress on my costume for AGES!!! Everything is packed up in boxes, i cant wait until i have moved, and i can really get started again!!!

17th February 2010: Demonic writing well.. today i went out and i bought some more stuff for my costume. I managed to find everything i need to finish my chest piece which is awesome, but i also bought about 5 metres of red ribbon, as i thought it could take a while to write out all those demonic letters... now i wanted to get this PERFECT!!! so i did a bit of research.. and some very close studying of images, and the demonic alphabet chart you unlock at the end of the game, and it turns out... her hair ribbon says 'BAYONETTA BAYONETTA BAYONETTA.. ETC ETC...' all the way down.. from start to finish.... which is awesome!! coz i was just gonna write out random letters, lol. so i made sure i got a good copy of the alphabet.. and i'm still in the process of writing it out... so far i think i have written 'Bayonetta' about.. 25 times in demnic writing... so im pretty used to it.. and about to finish it off will upload a picture when its all done and perfect!!

10th February 2010: Glasses and Chain RIGHT! today i have started making progress with my glasses, instead of buying new fake glasses.. i have decided to use my everyday glasses.. which i wear all the time, because they are the perfect shape!! and if i do it well enough... it would be mighty awesome to be walking around with bayonetta glasses all the time!! haha. so yes, it took me a while to figure out the design from different sources.. its not perfect but its close! so i drew it out neatly and traced it onto card. its only thin card so it will hopefully be strong enough!! was a bitch to cut out!! so tiny and detailed.. and now im just applying layers of paint.

Have started with the chain as stated previously.. i havent actually done anymore, becuase it was so difficult to sew on the first little bit... ive sort of been dreading going back to it, but i'll work on it in bed tonight, just to get it out of the way. so thats about it really. should be getting ribbon and such at the weekend so i can get started on the script and the gloves.

Will update soon im sure!

p.s ... so proud of myself, i have been doing work on my cosplay everyday!! hopefuly will be done in no time!!!

9th February 2010: CHAIN! well i just sewed on the first bit of chain to the catsuit.... was so much harder than i imagined!! and so much more to go!!!

8th February 2010: HUZZAHH!!! I DID IT!!! i managed to make the hair attachment finally, just uploaded some shitty webcam pics. It isnt perfect yet... but it turned out better than i thought!! *happy dance* Now i just need to attach ribbon and chain!

8th February 2010: mess! thought i would upload an image of the mess im getting in trying to do this hair attachment!! im finding long black hairs everywhere!!!

8th February 2010: progress! Right... well.. all in all its going pretty well. right at this moment.. i am up to my eyeballs in card, hair and black paint! the hair is proving more of a challenge than i first thought. Most people who i have seen cosplay bayonetta have all used wigs.. however i thought, seeing as i dye my hair black anyway, why not just make an attachment that i can use, combining it with the hair i have naturally, to make it look a bit more realistic, and not so... heavy and stuck on!! little did i realise.. just how hard this was going to be!!! been playing around with so many different ways and so far... nothing has worked. but i will keep going UNTIL I WIN!!!

anyway... aside from the hair disaster its going okay. I'm going to start attaching the chain to the catsuit tonight... what a long night of sewing individual chain links to a tough fabric i have ahead of me! but still all good fun. I thought i had found the perfect shoes to customise... but they arrived.. and didnt fit, so i shall takle that issue another time. And soon i should be getting me finger out and finding my way to a fabric store to i can get some red fabric, and black piping to complete the gloves. And also get some piping so i can finally start the guns!!

so.. really i guess its not going THAT well... a bit slow and annoying really, but never mind! hopefully i shall update soon and things will be going swimmingly!!!

What type of catsuit is that, leather?

Because I am looking to do a Solid Snake cosplay and I still can't find anything that would give a skin tight look like leather. And leather catsuits are like 100-200 pounds!

ElegantAura avatar

ElegantAura - 15th June 2010
You looked fantastic, gun shoes and all ^_^ I know how you feel about fail costume parts, but it honestly wasn't noticeable, my costume was constantly falling to pieces lol

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 15th June 2010
Alyx you looked FANTASTIC. Dont let those sort of comments in. Some people are just jealous because they see us having more fun than them, and cuz we can make our own costumes. Trust us, you look Amazing in this. And you fixed your problem with the centre cutout brilliantly. I didnt realise this was your first costume.. wow! You got off to a flying start. ^_^

I guess this is the difference between Expos - which are open to the public (including plebs, unfortunately) and Cons which are packed with just cosplayers. I shall have to make it to a Con someday. At Expo you need to develop a bit of a hard skin to survive any pleb element should you encounter it. I wish I could have hung out with you there..I would have supported you against their unkind comments.

Did you enter in the masquerade comp?

Alyx avatar

Alyx - 15th June 2010
Aww ^__^ Thank you so much guys!

Ranma.. you're so sweet! Thank you! Your right about the Expo though... i havent been to anything other than expo.. So i'd love to experience a proper con someday.. one that isnt jam packed with pr*cks! lol.

i didnt enter the Masquerade.. i just dont think i'm confident enough, though i'd love to for my Aika costume, especially if i can get my boomerang to light up lol. but even if i had entered the masq.. my costume was broken in the queue.. so it would have been a mess! lol.

Inuyoku avatar

Inuyoku - 15th June 2010
You looked awesome! I never got to see your gun shoes though cause of the pain! I felt your pain though from my paw shoes haha! You looked amazing ^^

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 16th June 2010
Alyx well the thing with masquerade is, once you get over the nerves of queing up to walk on stage!!..once you actually get out onto the stage though the cosplay audience allways make you feel BRILLIANT. They really appreciate the work that has gone into making your costume cuz they have made theirs too. So when you get on stage its actually really nice cuz they cheer you like crazy. =) Also you get to have some really nice chats with other cosplayers whilst you are all waiting in the queue back stage. You must do it..hopefully when Im there too so I can have a chat with ya. :P
Oh and the stewards give free drinks and sweeties to keep the contestants going too :)
