Time Taken : 3 weeks

Description
Me as Zero/Lelouch from Code Geass! Although it's a hybrid of The Order of the Black Knights uniform and the Ashford academy uniform, I thought this would be a lot easier to make, opposed to the full unitard version, especially as I suck at cosplay xD

The hardest part to make was the cape of course, made from PVC which I lined in red. To get the shape of the collar I fixed cardboard into it that would also sit on my shoulders, allowing me to *easily* fit into it each time. The edges of the cape were also lined with wire to maintain a constant shape. Finally, I sewed yellow ribbon all the way around the edge which took FOREVER.

The helmet was made by using a workers hat as a base, a circular dustbin lid for the front plating and a plastic medieval helmet for the back. Sprayed it all black and painted the gold Geass symbol onto it with a stencil! There was only one major problem with this helmet, I couldn't see out of it! XD Good thinking Mike! (Note to self make it more practical in the future).

This was definitely the hardest cosplay I've had to make, but I'm pleased with the end result being the second costume I've ever made XD

I think I wore the entire thing twice at the con for a total of 40 minutes. Worthwhile then! XD
