Costume Information

General
Time Taken : 10 hours

Description
the Jak and Dax series is probably one of my all time favourites, and i'm rather fond of Jak the reluctant hero with the wise-ass ottsel for a friend.

Jak 3 saw a rather solid change in his design, going much more towards a survival theme, although adapted from his Jak2 outfit. Personally its probably my favorite design, especially for the armouring work.

I've finally got around to doing this because i found a site for the main concept artist of the series (www.bobrafei.com) and Tofu found herself somewhat hooked on Keiras design; some very minor cajoling on her part later and here i am again, trying to cobble Jak together.

I'm also going to be using my own hair for this, bleaching and then dyeing it in the week before Amecon.

Thanks guys for the comments; still a few things to fix up or add to yet, but i'll be doing those slowly i think. Might be able to coax Tofu out as Keira again when i have - check it out! http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/2461

@Amy-Lou: thanks, most people didn't recognise me again (seems to be a theme at each summer con now for at least one things huh?) although this has been on my to do list for years now. My legendary procrastination strikes again it seems =P

Just a heads up. I'm trying to gather a Jak and Daxter series group for MCM Expo October 2011. Check the forum if you're interested.

Cheers guys!

@Nomes - currently may be returning for Ayacon with some actual armour and a better waist belt; currently not too sure. Due to being up in York i tend to avoid the Expos i'm afraid, but i'll keep an eye out for photos - your Ashelin is currently looking fantastic!
