The trousers! This wasn't meant to be a big, fancy cosplay, but just try finding trousers that look anything like that this side of the millennium. These wound up costing me thirty pounds, by far and away the most I've ever spent on a part I didn't have to make. Still, it was fun starching that deliciously awful crease down the front!

The shirt was a second-hand one from eBay which I had to mutilate the shoulders of to get it even close to fitting. I guess it looked natural enough when it was done. The waistcoat is an old one, which looks tiny over that shirt! The shoes - well, obviously they're not show-accurate, but I just felt too damn chubby to cosplay a Gundam character, and I was after any trick I could get. I do think they're at least his kind of thing - if he was going to wear high heels at all. They were six pounds in a charity shop.

The wig was, I think, twelve pounds. I wasn't completely happy with it, but I didn't have time to exchange or return it. I was actually kind of trying to buy it as a Dave Strider wig, so that I could give it to my cosplay bro (here seen playing Duo) after the con. I was trying for a semi-natural semi-accurate look, aided by mooshing those googles straight into my fringe. Again, the goggles aren't exactly accurate - they were a compromise between the kind I needed for this costume, and the kind I'd be needing for a second cosplay later that day.

I love Nert. He is the most beautiful photographer.

Hee! Thanks for that - it's hard to look fresh-faced after preparing for a con, isn't it?
