Costume Information

Cost : £70
Time Taken : Several Hours

I, again, have to admit to the wonders of Ebay.
I did not make the coat, pleather is too expensive for a newb like me to experiment on and thats that, so I bought one. Relatively cheap at £60 and it does the job.

I took on the challenge of Axel because my friend, Caz, got me into the game. From a simple 'getting into' I became obsessed and in turn made some of my friends play it. I had known about Kingdom Hearts (I watched my bro complete 1 =3=) and the organisation were somewhat familiar (again, my brother wanted a coat and so showed me who they were) but after actually playing KH2 it was like 'ZIP OBSESSION', though i have yet to defeat Sephiroth D':

Me and Caz then decided quite a while ago to be Roxas and Axel, and although i bought the coat in November I only just got the wig sorted out. Took me about 3 hours of hairspraying and shouting at gravity, but I'm proud. This is the second version, the first wig looks like some red kind of DBZ char.
I love the character and apparently I act like him too, which means being IC shouldn't be hard XD But the costume is so fun to wear, I wear the coat down town all the time!

Bring on May!
