Sexy! Cant wait till we can get this going together. Good idea with making it later on, I always loose/Gain weight around expo and my outfit is never a great fit. XD

Ah yeah I know that feel, specially since I'm now on my gap year the amount of exercise I'm doing has tripled and the amount I eat has halved so it would be stupid to start now but I have too many cosplay making feels xD
Can't wait for the group :3

Major kudos for painting the fabric to match, so impressive and really noticeable!

Journal

Nearing expo (Posted 22nd October 2012)

Appologies for no pictures as I have no computer and haven't for months
Basically what needs to be done;
- Attached fabric strip, horns and symbol to hat
- Add ripped effect to jeans
- The collars
- Burn effect to kimono
- Buttons and other pretty stuff to under jacket
- Braid drapery
There's been waaaayyy too much hand painting involved to this D<

Kimono (Posted 21st September 2012)

This should have been the easiest part of the cosplay but fml it's a big bitch
First Im having to paint on all of the pattern myself since I did want to go more with the ref and have a skull print pattern
This is nearly done just waiting for more paint to arrive then I can finish this then sew it all together
Also thinking of creating a ragged look across the bottom of it in a similar style to sufferer and use a lighter to burn the fabric
Shhh it's fun...

Would upload progress photos but I have no computer and doing this from my iPod which won't let me ;.;

Progress (Posted 13th September 2012)

Stuff is starting to come together nicely thank god with advice from the lovely terezi in the group I was finally able to find some decent fabrics that I can use
In the end after searching for hours on end I have decided to use a similar approach to setsugetsuka to create a print of my own on the fabric for the kimono making it as accurate as possible
It will kill my sanity but will be worth it
Really looking forward to this group :3

The Plan (Posted 7th July 2012)

I'm going to gather all the materials and make all parts a can (like the hat, mask, accessories etc) up and until Expo and then like a month before actually make it.
Can't do it too early since I'm on a training program and diet so by expo if I made it now it wouldn't fit -facepalm-
Luckily they're all similar to what I've made before so once the making gets going t won't take long at all
