Costume Information

Time Taken : 10 hours so far

Was to go with my friend for Kita but fell through so I kinda lost motivation to finish making the goggles for this one. I really liked the paint job I did on the jacket though!

EDIT: This has since been retired - all the sewing parts were pretty dreadful as I made them back when I'd only just started cosplaying. I really wasn't confident with prop work or wig styling at that time either so they all looked pretty half-assed. However, I still quite like the jacket so kept hold of that. If I ever get around to remaking him, his jacket will be the only thing I keep from this test run!
