|Cost :||A lot more than I had expected...!|
|Another costume stolen from Ino. WAH! T__T Are you sure about this~???|
Anyways, whenever we end up doing this it's be epic if we could get a whole team togethor. I must admit, though, I am looking forward to being such an annoying brat. XD
EDIT; For the purpose of getting some (hopefully) epic photos, I'll be wearing him in the Toei Eigamura themepark (Like an old Edo-period filmset) in Kyoto!! HAHA That IS, of course, as long as I'm not the only one who ends up doing so. XD;; RIGHT, NAKAMA?? RIGHT?! ^_____^;;;; *Mustering courage*
Year-later-edit; Yeah. Totally did not do the above. ^_^;;;;
The whole shabang (Posted 3rd September 2013)
So the original material I bought for the purple underjacket was changed to something less shiny. The Vietnamese fabric was lovely though, so I really hope I can use it someday! T^T
Also, turns out that trying to get a stupidly-long length of rope tied into stupidly-long hair is a headache I'd rather do without, so I chopped it up and wrapped it round a clasp which just CLIPS over the top instead. BAM.
Over...shirt? (Posted 3rd September 2013)
The...thing...that goes over the top. much more of a headache than I ever dreamt it would be! DEM FOLDS. DAAAH.
Undershirt (Posted 3rd September 2013)
Just adding photos that have been deleted from the gallery. The undershirt is pain...literally. I can't lift my arms, so I do hope we aren't held at gunpoint whilst wearing this! XD I hate it when that happens...
My head hurts...no, it really does! (Posted 31st July 2012)
Okay, so I've made the humongously long ponytail and after a lot of trial and error (and swearing) I've made it stay put on my head! It's guaranteed to last for hours now, without drooping! ^_^V However, the same cannot be said for me. It HURTS LIKE HELL. And gives me a headache. Which in turn makes me sick. =_= Oh, what we put up with for cosplay...
Oh, also, there are still some blonde hairs poking out here and there but come Wednesday they'll all be dyed brown to match.
I AM working, I swear...! (Posted 25th July 2012)
Just to prove that I AM working on this! Finallt found all the material I need (albeit way more expensively than I had planned for) and I'm trying to sort it al out.I say trying, because no matter how simple it looks...and in this photot HOO BOY it looks REALLY SIMPLE, right? Anyway....it's not, it's been giving me major grief, and all because I'm basically trying to get the fabric to fold and scrunch up in places that is just physically impossible. Hence so much time spent twealing what is, essentially, a bloody easy garment.
Fabric of loveliness (Posted 21st June 2012)
Okay, so I'm finding it ridiculously hard to get the right coloured fabrics for this. Oddly enough though, I seem to have hit upon the (seemingly) hardest one first; the inner part of his clothing which is a sort of purple with a slight floral design. Well....had this stuff imported from Vietnam and HOOO BOY it's WAY too nice for my purposes! X_X I'm scared that I'm going to ruin it all....
Sigh. Now I just have to find the right mustard-y colour for the rest of his outfit! >_< And I thought that would be the easist part...!
