Hot Beef Injection
|Awards :||2nd place in the Square Enix cosplay competition at Hyper Japan|
|Time Taken :||50 hours|
|I wore this costume with two herniated disc in my spine. Funny if it weren't so painful.|
The staff posed some interesting design problems, mostly about transport. AS such it can be broken down into 6 pieces which I store flat. The perspex is a little flimsy, so I try hard not to test its breaking point!
The boots were interesting. I used craft foam panelling first time, but around the ankle it just couldn't stand the wear and tear, so I painted those panels on, and kept the ones on the upper boot. I repainted the lot to a colour I felt was more accurate.
The wig and ears......nightmare.
The jacket itself is quite heavy, so it's actually a lot hotter than it looks. Some bits are unfinished, such as the belt connectors. I'll get there. I touched up some parts already for Hyper Japan, hopefully Ayacon will see completion
