|Time Taken :||4-5 weeks|
|From when I first saw Tyki Mikk, I immediately took a shine to him. I agree with the people who have told me he looks badass, and some of my friends think it'd be a good idea to cosplay him. So, this hopefully should be my cosplay project for MCM London Expo May 2009!|

Some progress for you. (Posted 7th May 2009)
As you can see, I've got most of the clothy bits of my cosplay together! Of course, Tyki does not sport pink hair and purple/green eyeliner XB
Will practice with the makeup and hair after I've bought the lenses. Currently pondering adding a smudge of black facepaint to make my cheeks look more gaunt. Teez and buckle are all cut out, but still need covering and painting, may dedicate the weekend to that.
Change of plan (Posted 30th April 2009)
Nothing better than a change of plan at 2am.
Decided to change thc colour of my contacts after examining footage of Tyki and his antics. Rather than go for an "in your face" yellow block lense, I'm going for a darker, more subtle colour. "Yellow panther", to name it.
So at least my eyes won't stand out too crazily from my grey face!
Little things (Posted 30th April 2009)
Today I managed to get hold of some extra buttons for the blazer. I've deduced that Tyki's blazer is double breasted; mine is single breasted. Time for some sewing. The buttons aren't black either, so it's time to break out the enamel pen for some customisation.
I also managed to buy a waistcoat. Lovely thing, proper black tie, silky with a subtle pattern. Very victorian gent. I managed to get £5 off of it and all as it was incorrectly priced. Ah, budget cosplay...
So now, all that's left is the shirt, cravat, lenses and shoes. Then I can get onto practicing with the makeup and making the props!
Edit: Also pre-ordered my fast-track tickets for MCM London Expo. Wooo, it's suddenly very real!
AHHHHHHHHH (Posted 29th April 2009)
So I make my return to CosplayIsland for the first time in five months.
Right now, on top of my cosplay project, I have to do:
It's going to be tight, looks like I'll have to pull a couple of all-nighters..
Oh well. Its all for the cause!
So it begins! (Posted 31st October 2008)
So today is the day I officially make Tyki Mikk my next cosplay project.
Gosh, I'm so excited! <3
I can't start buying things yet, so I may have to settle for making the Teez for now... Oh well, at least it will keep me busy. Money is going to be tight around Christmas, so I will save buying the actual suit until afterwards.
In this, eBay, charity shops and the local party shop down the road from my university will become my faithful friends!
Hey, I know I've only just finished two cosplay projects, but its always good to plan ahead!
