Costume Information

When I saw there was an Okami group I was really eager but didn't think I'd suit any of the characters. Then I realised they were doing the Zodiac Gods O_O

Itegami is awesome! Power of Blizzard, giant conch horn, long coat, lots of layers... *realises this is for a con in August* DAMMIT! LOL

Seriously, I can't wait for this. It's an amazing group of cosplayers and I'm just honoured to be a part of it!

Wow, I do not envy you. XD Mine isn't anywhere near as layered as this and I'm still like "DEAR GOD NO LINING I WILL MELT". This is really cool though, no pun intended.

I love this outfit but will be very warm I think unless you cheat a bit. (Such a thing as a thin/light fabric that looks like winter clothing? XD)

First Layer of Papier Mache (Posted 9th August 2011)

DONE! Another layer or two then PAINT!

Does it look like a Kakuna to anyone else...?

Final Shape (Posted 9th August 2011)

Ok, so the final shape of the horn (more angular than I'd like...) and I've covered the duct tape with masking tape as I plan on papier macheing it later and I know from experience that papier mache doesn't cling to duct tape.

Taking Shape (Posted 8th August 2011)

Ok, so the thing is starting to take shape now. Cut my fingers to ribbons on loose bits of wire...not fun LOL


Work Begins on the Conch Horn (Posted 7th August 2011)

Ok, so I started work on the horn... the base I was planning to use fell through so got wire mesh and decided to make a shape out of that.

It's so much stronger than I remember!

BAH! New Fabric (Posted 6th August 2011)

Still haven't heard back from the fabric place so I took matters into my own hands. Went out and decided instead of Polyester I'd go for an off-white Cotton Drill. Got a bi-stretch variant so it has some give. I'd hate to ruin the coat just because it doesn't move well with me ^_^'

Wig, Earmuffs, Scarf and Rope (Posted 28th July 2011)

Just a shot of some of the things I have so far!

Sorry for the blurriness!

Rope sorted! (Posted 27th July 2011)

One of the odd things I've been sorting is the thick, braided rope which Itegami wears to hold his conch horn.

Scarf (Posted 18th July 2011)

Gods, I've been working on the oddest things lately to get this sorted LOL After the fiasco with the fabric I've gotta send that back and get new stuff so now I'm focussing on things that aren't the coat. Got the scarf sorted now, just need to do a bit more sewing on it ^_^

It's two bought scarves that I've had to modify to suit the length and style but almost done!

FABRIC RAGE (Posted 15th July 2011) the fabric that I ordered showed up...and it's black ¬_¬

HOW FAR FROM WHITE CAN YOU GET!? The seller's response? "Sometimes it happens." ¬_¬ But they are swapping it thankfully.

GRR! Delayed!

WIG! (Posted 5th July 2011)

The wig arrived and is pretty nice, needs a little bit of styling and it'll be sorted!
