|this was one of the first animes i watched waaaay back, i didnt understnad it at the time, but after a rewatch iunderstood it. Its pretty straight forward. |
I love the Major, she is a cyborg that still has empathy for humans, when the worst happens to the team she makes sure that Togusa and the captain are safe and out of the line of fire.
I love her back story, and why she had to go full cyborg at an early age, and how hard it was for her to adapt to the new body.
Although she is a cyborg and can choose any 'chassis' she sticks with the female version, the best part was when Batu tries to prove that she should change into a male body, all she does is smile at him in a cute female smile and then hacks him and makes him hit himself.
i think i will do one of her more conservative outfits as im not a cyborg and i dont have a perfect body lol im thinking the brown suit
also wanted to add, i wrote a whole 2000 word essay about the comparison of this to the matrix, watch the 1st film and see all the small things that are mimicked or homage to the original, however this makes me laugh as how do you define the original isnt gits just a mimic of something else? this is something that the 1st gig talks about with the laughing man.
mimicking scenes= one scene is Batou running though a market chasing the culprit fires at a watermelon, the matrix does the exact same scene.
Neo enters the 'real' world and is lifted up by a machine by his head, at the end of the first gits film motoko is also lifted in the same way. just a few comparisons there for you to mull over :P
an obvious one, plugs in the back of the neck
numta is batou
granny gertrude as the chief ..... hahaha he better keep his word or ill come after him lol

gahhhh top remake (Posted 13th December 2011)
okay so i was really happy with the top till i tried it on tonight the back is just terrible so im going to make a new one using the old one as a template but giving a lot more material to the back it wasnt right so just gah, i seem to be having a bad time at the mo with costume making. on the other hand i altered my wig its not the best but i dont think i did to bad
top adjustments (Posted 5th December 2011)
so i decided to use the lilac lycra not pvc it was meant to be a mock up but it worked really well.
Just a few changes the sides I'm going to make higher arches so it lies on my waist not hips hopefully give me a nice figure. Also i may use the push up bra to make extra boobage, the first top pic is with push up bra the 2nd is with strapless so well i think the first is much better.
Next on the list is make the jacket cos i cant find the right jacket to edit lol ¬.¬
screw it , i really love motoko's 2nd gig outfit (Posted 26th November 2011)
okay i thought well i wanna do her justice and as its going to be friday day outfit. I'm going to give the 2nd gig version ago..... my version will be silver pants XD or metallic looking. mixed with a PVC top yesh that's right PVC. Now i know how to put boning in i think i have an idea of how im going to make it XD and if it doesnt work well i go bk to my casual version XD
glasses XD (Posted 26th November 2011)
although in the ep im basing my costume from i really wanted the purple glasees.
so after going to Tab's cosplay prop talk at Doki Doki im hoping his method of making purple glasses will work.
so plane clear glasses, bowl of boiling water, purple pen middle = hopefully a good pair of glasses
costume descision (Posted 4th September 2011)
