Costume Information

Cost : £50 +
Time Taken : One year

One of my fav characters from One Piece is Luffys older brother Ace. I was originally going to debut this cosplay last year but it wasn't 100% finished and I wanted to get much more in shape for it so I held it back for this year. I havent ever seen anyone cosplay him so I wanted to challage and face six months at the gym for the obvious reasons.

The hat is pretty much complete the red beads but I am still working out a way to get the hat orange while keeping it looking nice. The smiley faces were cut out of wood then drawn on with pencil, once this was done my friend painted over them. The skull necklace is also complete but I am still trying to make a decent log pose which is the item on his wrist.

After a few complcations, I will finally debut this cosplay at the October London expo hopefully joining a group.

Well, what you could do is print off the tattoo and cut out the shape to make a stencil. then get someone to colour in your back via the stencil with pen, make up ect. Thats what i did with my ouroboros tattoo on my envy costume.

Hope fully You'll get it finished.. if not i hope to see it in october! :D
