|Kazuya Minekura's interpretation of the Journey to the west has to be my all time favourite Manga. I have wanted to cosplay as Goku for a long time now, but i always let other stuff get in the way. It's not particually an Overly elaborate costume, but it is one I want to do. The Main expenditure came from the wig. the rest was stuff I aleady had or spare material.|

I had planned to make the staff so it coild break apart , but I realised I had to make it con safe and I couldn't find any safe chains. In the end i decided to just make it as one piece. I just bought some foam tubes and painted one red with acrylic. I then used kitched roll holders for the ends topped with polystrine balls painted gold and glues it all together
Diadiem (Posted 9th August 2011)
I bought a headband and created the shape of Goku's Diadiem out of cardboard from the back of a sketchbook. I then created the same shape too add over the top of the first,but with the centre cut out to add depth to the Diadiem. I then just glues it and spyayed it with a gold paint and then used doubble sided tape to attach it to the headband. It slightly lifts off at the corners, so I have put two gold hair grips at the ends to hold it together.
