Something else I got talked into doing. But it's Gary [M****r F*****g] Oak so I don't mind too much.
I'm nearly finished making his top now, working on it while Ash's jacket dries.
I think most of the work for Gary is going to be styling his hair... Well, I say hair, though it's more like a head explosion. Oh, that and his ugly orange shoes.

Just gotta get my dignity back now; after telling my non-cosplaying friends I was 'dressing as Gary from Pokémon' they kinda ripped me for it. PAH. Who're they kidding, anyway, they loved it too! ...When we were 8.

Ah, all I need now is a convertible and some bitches.

Top is done, boots are painted, wig is in the post... And the bling is being made by Frazzy currently, so I'm putting this in complete so I can forget about it lol.

I had a whack at trying to style his hair today... It's my first try doing something so Super Saiyan-ish, so I think there's a lot I could improve on. The wig was one from Cosplay Wig on eBay, so it's not really made to be styled up so drastically which is why I've had to lower the general volume of it to something that doesn't show through the back. Still, I'm somewhat happy with how it turned out, and I know what to do to make it better next time!

Top Complete! :D (Posted 27th January 2009)

Completely finished Gary's top today after I sewed on the orange... I still think the sleeves are a little long, so I MIGHT shorten them.
(In the pictures is Ash's unfinished jacket, since I ran out of yellow thread XD;)
