|Given that I already own half the fabric and the hair colour i'm sporting at the moment is the same as Mr. Leonheart's i figure i'll give him a go.|
Was a nice success at the Ball, sadly didn't make it for the cosplay clubnight at new years or midlands but a nice re-wear at Kita 4 will show it off a little after over a year in not wearing it!
My hair is much shorter now, so have styled an older wig I owned and will give this little has together cosplay a good go again!
I honestly will make the particulars someday ie proper trousers, lion belt buckle and of course the gunblade!
Whoop whoop! (Posted 27th November 2010)
Ok from getting the fabric to actually making the thing, it has taken the full space of about 2 weeks to complete. I cheated immensley with my t-shirt- i bought one then modded with leather bias and some left over leather from the jacket for the point. Looks effective enough and given the amount of time there was between thinking i'd make it for new years and then getting ball confirmation cheating seemd like a viable option. I will more then likely keep it as is, since its a nice simple cosplay i can re-wear another day if necessary. SO maybe new years might see something else but who knows!
Progress and completion pics to follow! You never know i might get some with me in it too!
