Costume Information

Time Taken : Started- 23/05/2010 Finished- 30/10/2010

I've always wanted a way to bring my two fursona characters in to real life, yet fursuits and the like have just never seemed like the right way to represent them.

Gijinka's however let me bring the characters out yet still give them a sort of manga/anime feel.

Bal was intially designed as a sort of alternate/evil reprsentation of my fursona. Although I'm still going through the designs my intially idea for Bal is a mad scientist/magician super villain.

So after having a talk with my friend this is now definately happening on the second day of MCM! We've also co-created an assistant for Bal named Nurse Seban. The two will be delightfully evil and well in keeping with the fact it's halloween!

Wow after wearing this on the Sunday I can honestly say I wasn't expecting such a positive response as we got. Despite being something no one recognised tons of people wanted photographs and a lot of people really liked our designs.

It was fantastic to wear, despite the binding pain and the fact I couldn't pick anything up! We freaked a ton of people out as well which definitely made the whole thing pay off!

Ah thank you :) the brow piece is just a liquid latex prosthetic I bought pre-made from which I managed to hide the seams of using the top of the wig. I'll admit it's looking a little worse for wear in some of the later photos :') i definitely should have took some liquid latex with me!

Ears! (Posted 13th July 2010)

My first attempt at making ears hasn't gone too bad I guess, it certainly could have gone worse.
I got the sort of shape I wanted and managed to create the tears in his purple ear though I'm not sure how well this will look when the fabric's on.

Only had one casuality on this today as it was my first time ever using a glue gun. I'm now sporting two grotesque blisters on two seperate fingers.

Tomorrow the right ear will be covered in purple suede and the left ear will be covered in black leatherette.
