|Pain is power!|
A nice easy costume to get back into the swing of cosplaying at cons, and for once I actually finished it.
Akibaranger is a parody of Super Sentai, the Japanese series that Power Rangers is largely based on. Nobuo is a Sentai nerd that wears everyday clothes with a white scarf and a red, printed wind breaker jacket.
The costume will be upgraded in the future with a better jacket, better printing, and gloves that don't fall apart. I will continue to still deliver hentai to masquerade MCs though.

Costume complete. See you at Minami. Pain is power!
Grand Delusions (Posted 20th February 2013)
Last night a lot of the individual pieces for the cosplay came, a lot earlier than I expected as well. All I'm missing now is the white gloves to go under the fingerless ones.
I just returned from the print shop as well, where I am getting the Sasaki Pompoko Delivery logo printed onto the back. Should be done in enough time for Minamicon next weekend.
I still need to buy a belt though, and I am considering forgetting about the pouch for the first outing

Started buying stuff for this cosplay today. Got a red windbreaker on the way, although it unfortunately lacks the black accents of the real one. Both gloves are on the way as well, with special detail paid to the fingerless ones - but only because they were readily available. Also bought the polo shirt today from Primark (it's good for something). I will not be looking for shoes for it right now, although if I see some for cheap then I will go for them - white trainers I guess.
Brown belt I think I have, but if not, another trip to Primark.
