Time to psych up, guys!

Thankyou! I really enjoyed wearing this outfit and it was suprisingly a lot more comfortable than I thought it would be. =O Shock! He and Yukimura will come out to play again sometime...right, Yukimura Sanada? X3

Ahh, thankyou~!

@ NakedSalad; OH MY GOSH YES! As well as Masamune I also have a Ranmaru costume and would LOVE to get up to some evil doings with a Noh-hime someday! (I felt lonely at Kitacon as the only Basara villain T^T)
If you ever decide to take her to an event let me know and I'm sure one or the other of my cosplays will show up also! Whoop!

Ooo, I will do! :D
She's one of my dream cosplays!

If you're going to the next Kita I could do her for the evening of a day like Friday?

Oh, that'd be totally wicked! We'll have a Basara group at Kita anyway so either mamsamune or Ranmaru will join you, along with others~

ALL OF YO SWORDS (Posted 10th April 2012)


Made from feather-light materials so I don't bust a gut....does mean they're more for show than use though, since they could be easilly broken. T^T Please don't try to pull them out or be heavy-handed with them 'cos I WILL bust your ass! XDD

Revising, yo~ (Posted 5th April 2012)

I hated that fact that I only had one sword...felt so inadequate! XD;; SO for the Kitacon re-wear I'm working on having a full set of claws!

Tedious process is tedious, however....

URG X_X (Posted 5th March 2012)

Here's my attempt at a shooped BG, and as you can see, it's not all the great. It just looks...well. Fake. I tried my best but my shopping skills are clearly not good enough. Anyone bored and up for a Photoshop challenge?

Bare bones (Posted 17th August 2011)

What's underneath the blue jacket; a billion layers, that's what! (I'm gonna swealter! X_X )
Please excuse my hideous just-crawled-out-of-bed face.

ARE YOU READY? ...Why yes, actually. (Posted 16th August 2011)

Masamune is now complete! Well....he only has 1 sword instead of 6 but SOME DAY he will have a full set! Next time these costumes have an outing, perhaps. but for Aya at least I'll just have 1 sword to lug around.

Oh, in the photo is the coat and trousers with upper leg armour.

Top part of arm armour (Posted 13th August 2011)

Okay, not a great shot but it looks better when it's all assembled. Made from window blind fabric, believe it or not. Rigid yet bendy! Good old Scrapstore, where would I be without you?

X_X (Posted 13th August 2011)

Okay, all the edging is now complete, thank GOD! This is the only picture I have taken recently of it though, so it's just an w,ip shot.
But it IS done, I swear!

Left to do; leg armour, tabi socks, weapons....though I think Masamune may end up swordless this Aya. T^T

RAGE (Posted 8th August 2011)


And Bias Binding, URRRRGH~!

Booyah, oh Cone-Headed One (Posted 25th June 2011)

Crescent sorted and, speaking of affixing I need to be able to get it to stay on my head! I stupidly made it the right size for me, without allowing extra room for wiggage. >_< I'll have to do a super nifty job on the ties to make sure I can both put the helmet on easilly and KEEP it on.

Glue-gunning my woes away~ (Posted 1st June 2011)

Okay, less than 24 hours after that woeful post and I've sorted out the helmet. XD Instead of stressing over getting more foam, I decided to alter the design a sliiiiight bit so that I could actually use what little material I had left. And VOILA, it actually worked!
So here's the helmet now; needs some cleaning up and the addage of the CRESCENT OF OVER-COMPENSATION~!! Will have to work out how I'm actually going to do that. *ponders*

Epic helmet woes (Posted 31st May 2011)

Okay, so that awesome metallic-y foam stuff that I've been using...well, I don't even know what it is or what to call it. Which is a bum since I've managed to bugger up a load of my sheets and I've run out half way through the helmet!! >__< I now have an unfinished helmet and no armour pieces whatsoever.
The problem is, see, I picked the stuff up from Scrapstore, so the likelihood of me ever finding the same stuff again, soon, is preeeetty slim.
I may have to start over, with some other material. Suggestions would be SUPER lovely~!

Less than epic helmet progress (Posted 14th May 2011)

Started experimenting with the helmet of epicness. Well, I say 'experimenting'...more like messing up and dtarting over again and again.
I've got some awesome foam that's thin, malleable and with a super shiny black metallic finish, so been using loads of that so far. ^_^;;
Progress pictures up soon~

Anime vs Game (Posted 22nd April 2011)

I'd decided to do the anime versioninstead of the game since that way won't need to make goddamn chainmail, but....I've only just noticed that anime version Masamune has dark grey/black trousers instead of blue. That just don't seem RIGHT. o_0 Wat do?

Let's keep it COOL~ (Posted 22nd April 2011)

Okay, I have sorta started on the main outfit, but in the meantime....CASUAL WEAR for the win!
