Costume Information

Description
To pair with Elliot at some point, we'll be mirroring eachother. Elliot will be Agito and I'll be Akito.
I've wanted to cosplay Ag/Akito for so long since I first watched the series about 3 years ago.

(( (30/05/2012) I ended up offering to make both straight jacket's because Elliot went and broke himself. I finished Elliot's straight jacket for Midlands Expo 2011 in approximately 10 hours but mine is still far from complete (30/05/2012) ))


*I'll be wearing this at (some point during- Which means afternoon because I can never get out of bed) Manchester Expo. Manchester has ideal scenery for Air Gear! Also, My__RoadOfBlood and I are super upset that Air Gear is ending so we're wearing these and it's going to be so emotional. Kfc Gear pfff.

Manchester Expo:
My__RoadOfBlood as Ikki
Street-Angel as Ringo
Navigatorxnami as Simca

We're looking for more people to join the group ;o

(( (20/07/2012) - Costume is finished but there are a few alterations that I want to make. I want to replace the hooks and lengthen the jacket.
Learning to roller blade may also be a good idea (20/07/2012) ))

Journal

Manchester Expo (Posted 25th July 2012)

I had to take the roller blades off after insisting on wearing them for like 30 minutes.
It was so embarrassing, everybody who witnessed me trying to roller blade seemed to be in hysterics.
I can't rollerblade, I've never really done it before and look. This is my dedication to cosplay.

After 30 minutes I swapped shoes with Ikki and admitted defeat.

Straight jacket 90% complete! (Posted 25th June 2012)

All that needs doing to fully complete the straight jacket is the straps and buckles.
I think it looks much better than my first attempt!
It needs taking in some more, it's waaay too big. I might do that later tonight.

Base complete (Posted 20th June 2012)

I forgot to post this to show that the base jacket is now completely wearable with hood and collar. The zip is sewn on now too instead of just pinned.
I'm currently sewing the details, pictures maybe later when I get my SD card back from my Mum ;;;;

The jacket stops around the top of my hips.

Also, those aren't the trousers I'll be wearing. Those ones are a size too small for me so I'll be purchasing some jeans ans hope that I don't put on more weight fivjbwkfebvkfjfml

zip, collar, hood, details (Posted 7th June 2012)

Derpy picture ajxcnavkdv

More progress today B)
I'm still fiddling with the collar positioning.
I'm currently pinning the stripes on and then I'll resume work on this after I get home on Sunday evening/ Monday morning by doing the straps and whatnot.

I found the trousers that I got for this costume. They're uhh, a tad tight (kIgotfat) so I'll have to purchase some new ones.

Base more or less complete

Progress ;O (Posted 5th June 2012)

The last time I made a journal on this costume was the last time that I picked up the materials for this costume.
I picked them all back up again today (finally!) and got my ass into gear.

Most of the base of my jacket is now down, I need to sew various parts together, hem a few bits, overlock some seams then it's onto the 'details'. (straps, hooks, black and white stripes)
And of course, I need to learn how to rollerblade.
/cries on my rollerblades

x_ LAAA~ Progress c: _x (Posted 24th January 2011)

Jay's jacket is done, it was a real nice fit too which pleased me 8D & I startd mine today~ I finished the torso and I'm gunna' do the sleeves tomorrow c: Am so excite for this~ (I also need to buy more stuff for the black&white, I used it all on Jay's jacket oTL)
The wigs arrived too, they're at Jay's house. Apparently the wig and jacket colours go nice together, so heres to me picking the nice colours? XD I haven't actully seen the wigs.. But I want mine nooow D8

BOOM,
Cheetos xx

x_ ORANGE _x (Posted 9th January 2011)

Walked into my English Lang class after buying the orange material and by the look on people's faces, they were thinking "WOW, ORANGE!"
Neways, I got started on Jay's jacket today 8D I didn't get very far tbh oTL I've finished the base jacket and the sleeves are rlyyyy long 8D
The jacket is HUUAAAAGEE on me 'cause I'm so tiny compared to Jay XD
Going out to buy more suppplied tomorrow to do the collar and hood, then will do the zip, stipe thingys, pants, straps and hooks on legs, eyepatch blah blah
Jay has bought our matching wigs c:
