Costume Information

I thought it'd be amusing :P

My bf wanted to go as Bardock and there's no way I'm wearing Fasha and her leotard in October O_O So I thought I may give Kid Vegeta a go as he's one of my favourite characters and I've never really seen this version done before!

Done this with the armour as I didn't think he'd be easily recognisable without it! I already had the faux leather and suade left over from a commission that someone decided they no longer wanted even though I'd already bought the i'm not really counting it as a cost as i bought it SUCH a long time ago. So really the major expense are the wigs, which still aren't here...COSPLAY.COM SHOPPING IS FAIL.


I've added a video from youtube which has a clip from DBZ where he's little X3 hope that's ok XD

Shopping List



AHHH! (Posted 25th August 2010)

lol. I've decided to shorten this mo fo. It just looks a bit odd...I might unpick the chest detail bit so it'll join the shoulder armour bits. Been analysing the reference pics and I really do want it to look like it >.< *flails at self perfectionist-ness*

Progress ^^ (Posted 13th August 2010)

cut and rolled more faux leather to stitch onto the stitch markers I did yesterday :) has worked rather well!! Did the front and back today, will leave the bottom and the collar bit until I've attached the Shoulder pieces. These will most likely be made from foam covered in the same AMAZINGLY SOFT gold suade type stuff :)

It looks much better now! I unpicked on side of the armour as I'm going to put a zip in instead ^_^
