|Igarashi Ganta, Kiyomasa Senji, Minatsuki Takami and Shiro all worn at May Expo 2011.|
We did the shoot in the morning in a huge rush as poor Minatsuki had to leave as soon as she got there- to go to last minute Britain's got Talent Rehearsals! Crow and I hadn't styled our wigs and the blistering cold winds meant Crow didn't want to strip down until he got inside (unfortunately for me) as well as everyone having slightly pained and windswept expressions!
Prison Suit made from scratch by me. The DMW sign is appliqued on the back and front pocket. All our collars, my Ganta-gun, my chest crystal and Crow's blades were made by Yukioto (With help on the collars from Berniebear!). Both my Ganta-gun and Chest crystal had embedded LEDs which lit up red (unfortunately the crystal broke before I even got to the convention).
We've had a few comments about the collars and I agree they're not accurate at all and plan to re-make mine. My whole costume was made a week before the convention and the collars were a huge problem for us- in the end we decided to heat form plastic- discrete although not quite accurate rather than huge chunky polystyrene rings which seemed to be the only other option and didn't seem right either.
Despite everything (and missing my psychotic whore very much) I had a great time at Expo with Crow and Shiro!
