Costume Information

I don't usually cosplay from new games that are inherently popular, but I just love this guy to bits. I love doing the badasses who have reasons to be bad.

Ooh this will be cool to see! I haven't actually played XIII-2 yet so I can't say I know much about him, but he definitely looks like your kind of character!

Will you be making that sword? It looks... difficult! D:

r0cket - I will be doing the sword, yes indeed. :-)
Difficult? Yes. Do-able? Yes. My sort of guy? OHH YES!
He's got a damn good reason for being badass.

Ah, it'll be quite some time before I'll be able to get him done. I'll be buying the odd few bits and pieces in the not too distant future so I can get properly started, but he's a long term project. ;-)

Thanks. :-)
He's going to be a rather tough one, but I set myself the challenge. Hopefully by this time next year he'll be finished or almost finished.

I hope I can do this next year, but there's so much work in this. >_<'
And sure. I'm usually sort of on call when there's a big costume that might be needed.

I'm not looking forward to constructing the Ragnarok for him though. Haha!

I can see that being a mega pain to make :S Good luck anyway! If nothing else shall be a good challenge and a chance to up your skill levels I guess?

I'm not 100% sure, heh. I'll have a better idea if I can get a decent bodysuit with zipper in the groin so I can visit the rest room if necessary. XD
It WILL be a pain to make, hahaha... *Sigh* -_-'

New Caius wig - partially styled (Posted 22nd December 2012)

The first wig was a complete failure in that when it turned up it was very grey with very little purple in it.

I have now received the replacement, and here's a photo of it partially styled.

I don't know exactly when Caius will be debuted, but it will likely be in the latter half of next year as I am working on Zagato from Magic Knight Rayearth first and there's an awful lot to do on Caius' costume.

Wig Bought (Posted 6th November 2012)

Well, that's a miniscule start on this mountain of a challenge. I hope it looks as it does in the photo -
I have bought a third wig head as well.

Ah, I really need to think about how I'm going to put all that armour together. The usual method probably won't be appropriate as this looks.....rubbery?
