A Quick and cheap costume made in just 1 week, Wish I could have spent more time as left it to late. I had a vision for it and it would have worked had I given more time. It was suppose to be a lot better than this :( But for a first cos-play not too bad I hope :D I am Considering revisiting this one maybe for Oct 2011 Expo Maybe later we shall see :D.

Awesome! I love the face paint and horns! My friends hate me at this game as I turn the controller upside-down to play it and button-bash with my Guitar Hero fingers :-P

First cos-play what I used (Head) (Posted 8th May 2011)

Hi you all,
I though it might be be a good idea to tell how i create each costume so, I'll see if this works. For this particular Costume I had 1 week to pull things together.
1)Firstly To do the hair I simply hair sprayed it black, I wish i had made it a little more Jin Kazama style than just spray it. (My natural colour is Blonde)

2) The horns Were created with a hairband and cardboard, I had a bigger Idea of how they should have looked but couldn't in the time I had To get the look of being horns I simply bent the card board and then Used Tip-ex to add minor detail.

What I used cont. (Main Body) (Posted 8th May 2011)

To continue
Lets take a look at the body of the costume for this
1) I wanted to paint my body and go like that but I didn't have the body paint to do so, so I went second best and drew on an old white t-shirt, This took time but worked out ok :D
2) The wings were made of plywood with material wrapped around. I wanted to make them much bigger but due to time and nagging of my parents that(I would get in the way of others, because of my Spacial awareness. Groan. parents huh) I had to succume to these Mini wings. I will be building a new pair for the future. For detail again I used tip-ex Which appeared to work ok.

What I used cont. (Arms and legs) (Posted 8th May 2011)

Ok Finally
1) The Jin like gloves were made from Cardboard and material wrapped around. And then some split pins to make the effect of Jin's renouned gloves. I added Horns to make it look like Devil Jin, I plan to remodel these if i choose to use the costume again.

2) The trousers were my favorite creation for the costume, I took a pair of old Grey Black trousers. Then used red meterial to create the fire pattern, These came out the best part of the costume. Looking almost as if they were Jins.

Overall I would rate this costume ** out of ***** Due to it being limited in available time and general Design not being up to scratch on my vision. I realise That I am just a rookie with cos-play so any suggestions on future cos-plays Don't hesitate to say, or even suggestions on finished costumes, all will aid in future creations :D
Thanks for reading
