Costume Information

Something was said at the Manchester MCM Expo that's made me want to do this version of Kano.

It's his most basic version of all, but I've set it as a Challenge to Myself to do this for Kitacon 2012 (changes from Expo Oct 11 to be more realistic :P).
And it will be quite the Challenge....

17/01/2012 - I've listed this as Complete, since the costume itself now is....I just need to finish his Knife ;)

RIP Trevor Goddard

EDIT 17/01/2012 - After a bit of thought, I'm changing this to Kano's shirted version. This is mainly due to the fact that I'm not about to cut may hair, and so I'll need the shirt to tuck my hair into :P

Repair work & Upgrades (Posted 27th February 2012)

After Telford Expo, I will be doing some repair work on Kano.

The eyepiece fell out of the mask, and the knife blade was snapped.
It shouldn't take me long to sort these out, but it will give me the chance to upgrade my faceplate at the same time

General Update 01 (Posted 25th August 2011)

Despite this being a very simple costume to do on the whole, this is probably going to be one of the most difficult costumes I will ever be likely to do.
This is due to the slight fact that it will likely take me from now until Kita 2012 to get myself to the right physique. Well, maybe not that long, but it'll still be more work than I've ever put into a costume before, or probably ever will again....

On a different note, I have also started working on his knife.
To start on this, I printed out a "life-sized" picture of the knife, and cut it out. I then copied the shape of the blade onto a piece of Polycarbonate, and the shape of the handle onto some Sintra (foam PVC).
Once these are glued together, the handle will be built up using Milliput.
I will show WIP pics once I get started properly....
