|Well, Bleach being one of my favourite series, I really had to cosplay someone from it sometime or another. The Vizard kinda disappeared from the manga when the Hueco Mundo arc started, and since then there's been endless reams of Arrancar cosplayers - So I guess I thought I'd be different. Shinji is a very awesome character, and someone we haven't seen the full potential of. I'm sure he has a much bigger part to come as it seems he was planned from the very start of the manga.|
Enough drabble about that, though. This costume wasn't hard to put together at all. The tie is my old Primary School tie, I bought a shirt from Matalan (embarrassingly enough it's meant to be for a 13 year-old boy!), used my Grandad's old cap, my brothers school shoes (wrong, I know - I'm still working on that) and some grey pants I already owned. Ta-da. Instant Shinji.
The wig I also got from the Joke Shop my friend works at. It's the perfect cut, and surprisingly good quality too. Very comfortable to wear.
The mask! Gah, after finishing Hiyori's I didn't have the heart to begin Shinji's, but I will soon. When I get back into the sway of things, I'll post pictures when it's complete.
