|The dragon god of rejuvenation from the game Okami =3. Mtani as me to join eternal_aranel's group for Aya '11 and after a few weeks of 'maybe' I fially said yes ;P. I was torn between choosing Yomigami and Itegami, the gijinka artwork was all awesome. I chose Yomigami in the end because:|
1) Will be easier XD
2) He's a dragon...I wanna be a dragon :P
3) The outfit I liked on Itegami would probably melt me XD
So I shall be doing the 'young' version of Yomigami because I'm not all old and wrinkly with a pot-belly yet :P. Never worn such a long wig before, I hope it won't be too windy =3.
See you at Aya ^_^

Complete...kinda (Posted 20th August 2011)
So today we had our awesome Okami group despite me not being fully finished XD. My staff broke this morning so I couldn't take that and I didn't attach the horns because I forgot the body glue, plus the wig couldn't be styled well so it was left alone. I apologise now to the rest of the group who were great, and especially to Eternal_aranel, sorry to dissappoint. >_<
Staff progress (Posted 9th August 2011)
So, I finally have *really* started XD. Quick update to say I have all the pieces of the staff except for the four clay 'claws' that will hold the yellow balls in place. I believe I have figured it out now so it is just a matter of putting it all together ^_^.
It seems to be a trend to not post progress pics just to tease Eternal_aranel XD. I think this is ok though as it isn't much and is only one part of the costume XD.
Staff concept (Posted 21st June 2011)
As I am basing this gijinka on the fanart found http://konjo.sub.jp/o-kami/00.htm ; I decided to take at least one liberty with it. That is the staff, I don't like it very much, it's kind of boring :P. I decided, then, to attempt to make my own design and came up with the sketch attached. Unlike the original fanart this staff design allows me to incorporate the four balls Yomigami is seen holding in the game to the cosplay ^_^. I think I can make it and certainly will try XD.
First technique... (Posted 30th May 2011)
Mtani roped me into the Okami group for Aya this year but having played the game now I am psyched for this =D. We got the materials for our robe/kimono today when we (me and Mtani) went shopping for some cosplays ^_^. Will get started putting it together ASAP.
