Cost : £8

Description
I did this because I've never ever seen any Gilver cosplays before. EVER. It was kinda sad, so I decided to have a go at it! The bandages aren't too bad, I can breathe through them all right, and vision's all good too! The only discomfort I got was from my nose - it kinda got squashed, so when I took everything off, it was BRIGHT RED and I had to desperately powder it before going to the cosplay ball.


It was a very very cheap costume too - I just got the tie and shirt, and bandages. Just covering myself in bandages didn't work so well so I cut up an old shirt of my mum's and that served as a way to contain all my hair and basically make it easier to wrap myself. I might try this again one day, sticking a white wig underneath for the extra craziness, and getting myself a decent Yamato. Also I'd want to try wrapping my hands too.

Haha thanks everyone!!! XD I'm not quite the only Gilver out there, I might have inspired someone though. Thanks so much for all your comments. I'm impressed by how sore my nose was afterwards, I didn't think it'd be that painful >_>
