Costume Information

Description
Hhhhhh fat fluffy partridges ok.
He is legitimately my favourite character and I don't even care anymore.

Cosplaying for London MCM Expo in May of 2013, along with a friend of mine who is being Nanaki Kazuaki.
I unfortunately have a maths D1 paper on the day, but it's at 9am. She has an exam too, but we should be fine.

We're also probably going to rewear them for Hyper Japan 2013.

Okay sources/how I did it time~
*Wig: eBay. I've unfortunately lost the exact link to the one I ordered, but the image of the wig I ordered is in one of my journal entries~ a lot of trimming gave me his ponytail, which I tied up, and shaped the fringe and sides using scissors and wax.
*Tie: I had a purple tie knocking around the house. I ironed the stripes [made of bias binding and strips of fabric] onto it using hemming tape/bondaweb.
*Shirt: I was ridiculously lucky with this one, and had actually bought it a while ago for no other reason than just wanting one. It was from Primark, though!
*Vest: Umm. I think this was from the BHS men's section.
*Trousers: Black trousers from my days in education, hoo rah.
*Shoes: ...damnit. Matalan? I think Matalan. Yep.
*Lab coat: I once ordered one online for my Dr. Stein cosplay. It was from eBay, and I can recall the seller being based in this country.
*Cleaver: Made from foamcore. Coloured with metallic spray paint, acrylic paint, and fake blood.
*Hair ribbon: Oh yes this was just a big long strip of purple fabric I chopped a bit off and tied around the ponytail. ;w;''

@InfiniteJester:
Oh wow ;v; that'd be really nice!
It's for the Friday of Expo, and I'll be hanging around with a Kazuaki [hopefully if she doesn't have exams... ] so that should be an identifier :3

Journal

Red glasses arrived~ (Posted 12th March 2013)

So that's a relief.
They had this stupid writing on them but I managed to scratch that off without breaking everything. ;A;

White feather~! (Posted 9th March 2013)

It's not exactly a pen but I think it looks good.

Oh look the cleaver broke. (Posted 23rd February 2013)

In a fit of madness [or er tidying] the cleaver bent and looks pretty bad now.
I got some more foam board today. So I'm going to make another cleaver out of that and see if I can do a better job than last time!

Finished styling wig :3 (Posted 2nd February 2013)

That was a pain.

Lab coat + wig. (Posted 31st January 2013)

To my great relief, my lab coat took to the bleaching! It's now white again.
My wig also arrived! I find that when the wig has arrived, a lot of the work has been done, haha.
Wig needs some styling, and we're all finished here.

Bleaching lab coat. (Posted 27th January 2013)

Been trying to bleach it all day using various silly methods.
Now I've got some bleach in a giant tub in the bath, and it's soaking away in there.
If this doesn't work, I'll resolve to buy a new one.

CLEAVER'S DONE. (Posted 26th January 2013)

I was really not looking forward to this, but it was a lot easier than I expected!

Cleaver! (Posted 26th January 2013)

I got some foamboard today, and as I type I'm in the middle of making it into a cleaver!

Wig ordered! (Posted 12th January 2013)

It's a bit long and will require a lot of styling to get his fluffy look and his unique style, but it's one step in the right direction :3
