Dispite the popularity of The Major, I haven't seen an Original Movie Motoko.

I am exceedingly keen to see this completed :D

Its absolutely true! I've never seen any! Really don't like the whole S.A.C look...don't get me wrong its very obviously sexy but somehow it just doesn't 'fit her'...have you seen the previews for 'arise'? looks like a prequel and i'm very pleased to see her looking more like her 'old' self!

I have not, though I've heard about it extensively. Looking like her old self is fantastic news though! I do adore the SAC series but it's not the same like the movie. It felt a little more tame even though it was flashier it didn't have any real dark elements to it. Maybe the sexyness dulled the fact she was a cyborg?

Especially because of all the gun chatter on the forums I am so psyched to see this :D That FAMAS mod is gonna be boss :D And Kusanagi is such an awesome character :) It's always good to see some 'Retro' cosplays :D

Thankyou! I've had so many personal/financial/life issues that I've just abandoned so much but I'm on my way with this again and I'm so happy about it x

This looks like it's going to be an epic cosplay. Good luck with getting it all together, can't wait to see how it turns out.

Update (Posted 7th January 2016)

Been working on this on and off for so long and life has meant I've had to abandon it (break-ups/house moves/job moves/PGCE etc etc).

I've decided to go for the costume I love the most from this film, the tank fight battle attire. Wig purchase (needs styling), shoes sourced, trigger finger gloves purchased and awaiting alteration, bodysuit purchased and dyed TWICE (once with no success, then a second time with specialist lycra dye which has worked a treat), flak jacket purchased (awaiting mods/add-ons) and schematics blown up and printed in order to create the CZN-M22.

I WILL GET THIS DONE THIS YEAR. IT'S BEEN A DREAM SINCE I WAS ABOUT 14.

Oh yeah, and I also need to lose about 6 stone.

GAH!
