|Revy kicks ass and looks awesome (yeah, sure, she has issue. But don't we all? lol). I <3 Black Lagoon|
Worn at Aya Con 2009.
Unfortunately I ran into a problem the weekend of wearing this costume and ended up with really bad sunburn (probably apparent in a few shots lol) meaning that I very nearly didn't wear the costume at all as I wasn't able to wear the tattoo transfer. Thankfully my friends banded together and helped paint me a brilliant tattoo <3 ^^ Thank you!
I would still like to work on this costume more for future use.
Tattoo Test (Posted 3rd August 2009)
I bought some printable tattoo paper as an alternative to hours of painting on a convention morning, and ran a quick test for Revy's tattoo. Obviously not the entire tattoo is shown in the photo, just a section to test. The tattoo itself also needs the lines neatening up, but I wasn't going to spend time doing that till I knew it worked :P
I'm pleased with the results, though it was shiny and crinkled when my arm moved lol. For a dry run test it went well. I hope it survives ok when wearing a lot of it and it being on my neck. I might take mastix or something to fight against any peeling >_>
It does feel kind of like wearing a sheet of plastic fused to your arm tho xD I must admit. (And a bugger to get off)
