Description
Whee! Pantomime Ixion. We believe to be the first ever two person ixion cosplay, and part of the rare two person cosplays that are hardly seen at cons, especially in england.

I am the head and the head is based with chicken wire and thin plaster, with a layering of foam and fur.

The best part was making our hooves, which are the best things to wear EVER.

Worst part was when our gaffer tape would not stick to the plaster, but we used an ingenious method and everything is fine now :D

It is one of the most fun costumes to wear, because it's so silly xD. But due to it's size we're getting to the convention most likely in a transit van owned by my partner's step-dad xD

I love it, i can remember you telling me you were planning to do this - you did an awesome job!

by Arami Heartilly on Sunday, 24 August, 2008 - 09:01

I rememebr seeing this in the masquerade, you guys looked really awesome! The detail on the horn is beautiful and I think you did a very good job- especially since there were so many fursuits that appeared at AmeCon! You stood out, and congrats on the two-person idea, it certainly must have been difficult! ^^
