|Ok, so this crazy leather armour thing is done ^-^|
There will be no more pictures of the completed costume until after the expo at the end of the month, so I hope you look forward to that.
I never realised how much fun it is to work with leather. It doesn't fray and it cuts smoothly so it is easy to make things look like they should.
I am making this for a friend as a commission and it will be worn on the Saturday of the MCM expo. I will be wearing Fai to accompany my kuro-tan!

If I was kurogane, I would be running around in that cape non-stop! (Posted 12th June 2010)
The cape part is now taking shape and I need to start thinking about how I am going to make the collar. I don't think I will rip the cape apart until I have completley finished it. I still have no more fabric to use for the cosplay but I have managed to get funds of about £20. I would really like to know how I am going to spread this across a gazzilion different cosplays >_<
Rage can be a good thing sometimes (Posted 9th June 2010)
Well I have started this cosplay by using old material which I have to make a cape. I am going to have to tear it at the bottom of the cape when its done and it is going to be so much fun to destroy something :D
Fabric still needs to be bought but I am going to buy some soon ^-^
I went against my own advice again... (Posted 5th June 2010)
I decided to tackle a new cosplay and I went against my own advice of never making a cosplay for anyone else apart from yourself ever ever again. Just because I want a Kuro-pu for my Fai cosplay ^-^
Hunting down fabric at the moment which is fun, although I have about £2 in my bag and a few buttons. I think I need to go wash some cars...
