Dilandau being, in my opinion, one of the most awesome villains (I use the term loosely =P) in anime, I just have to cosplay him.

lol you could always do that, some photo material there ^^ Hopefully I will get it done and pics are fine, it will have to be a careful hug though, my props aren't exactly the sturdiest and the armour will probably fall apart XD

Actually, I have started now XD (Posted 21st March 2009)

I have now completed the headpiece, but unfortunately that's all the progress I have made on this costume so far. The sword is still in progress, had a small hiccup with it and I now have all the material I need for this costume. Actually, I think I have all theparts of it now, just have to put them together into something that will hopefully resemble the real thing =).

So I lied a little! (Posted 7th November 2008)

Yep I did, I have started earlier than I said I would but that's not so bad right? XD Haven't done much though, made a start on the headpiece and armour which I am making from wonderflex (great stuff btw). No pics yet, will put some up when I have more to show ^^.

Not just yet! (Posted 31st October 2008)

I know this is a journal entry and is meant to be an update on my costume progress. Regrettably that progress is zero as I haven't started yet =P. I plan to wear this to the London MCM Expo in May '09 so I'll likely start in december after I finish uni for the xmas holidays ^^.
