Costume Information

Oooooft Gippal!
Because Bloo demanded I do it xD

Was really fun wearing this at October Expo 2010~ 8D

Though I had a few things fall apart whilst wearing him, so I'll be remaking those bits of him for Midlands 2011 :D
[not telling you where though so you can't spot it on pictures!]

And that time round my gun shall be finished!!! >:]

First time ever I'll be revamping a cosplay and have a prop that isn't simple :P

Things to do;
Remake outer pants
Revamp shoulder piece to be more durable
Properly sew the grey onto trousers
Finish making gun
Fix boots - possibly remake?
