Costume Information

Cost : too much!!!!
Time Taken : 6 months

Well like all the cosplays i wear, my older brother makes all of them. I want to learn how to create cosplays too but i have no clue at the moment XD I will get him to teach me! The head piece and shoulder pieces are made out of Insulation foam, covered in gesso and then acrylic paint. The theme of the gijinka costumes were mased off japanese clothes and attire, and you can tell this by looking at the Kimono, Obi, and hakama pants. On The Entei costume you can see that there is alot of fur involved. The cloak is made out of seperate pieces of fur, and then embroidered with gold rope to add a little more detail.

The wig for this costume was a nightmare!!!! Stupid me decided to wash the wig so i could make it more clean and neat for the expo, but because im a noob at wigs i just ruined it when i brushed it when it was wet... (DURR) But then my mum had saved it by brushing all of the knots out after it dried and straightened and recurled it and it turned out 10 times better than it started out as!!!!!

Im very proud of my brother for creating these costumes, they were very detailed and definatly got alot of attention and photo's at the London expo :D
