|Time Taken :||About a week so far plus however many (manymany) hours spent on the wig|
|I ADORE Saiyuki (can't you tell by my avatar) it is one of my true manga loves (the anime not-so much I'm afraid ^^;) and I have always wanted to cosplay it. Goku would be the obvious choice as my friends say I am very much like him in personality. Buuuuuut Seiten Taisen is a cosplay I've always wanted to do, I love the outfit, the hair, everything.|
Silly Skirt/Kilt thing: £5
Armour and Cape: £20
Various details including fangs, ears and claws: £25
Looking like you have stolen pieces of every other anime characters' clothing: PRICELESS.
|Crotch Armour (lol)||Low||Complete|
|Ears, claws, contact lenses and fangs||Low||Complete|
Woot! (Posted 9th July 2009)
Well, the clothes are done - the basic body bits. Both fairly easy to make which was nice, the trousers are incredibly puffy! (Which is awesome!) and the sleeves on the top are also very puffy (and silly looking - which I love!) Added with the skirt-thing which I have hacked up and burnt - the fur needs a bit of nasty-ing up though - and its already looking good!
Currently in the process of making the armour. Pics. Etc. as I go on!
And so it begins... (Posted 9th November 2008)
Whahahaa--! Does it count as cheating that I'm using the same wig for Goku as I am for Seiten Taisen? :p
I bought some hair extensions and have sewn them onto clips etc. and trimmed them where they need trimming so that the wig can be used for both Goku and Seiten Taisen (not bad really, means I can do more versions of his outfits depending on whether I wanna do long hair or not ^^.)
Once the main wig is finished being styled I'll take a photo with the extentions and stuff so you guys get an idea. Though this outfit won't be made until sometime late next year I'm thinking, I might as well start it up now!
