Costume Information

Cost : £30
Time Taken : Not enough :P

Because I'm laaaame.

Well, Tomitake *is* awesome, just a little on the plain side, cosplay wise. Freelance photographer who has a nasty habit of dying horribly every single arc.

It's an excuse for a simple, more or less comfortable outfit and my new camera gets to be part of it :P Sadly I'm not built like a truck so I'll be some kind of weedy alternate Tomitake. So there.

Higurashi is a fantastic show, even if you really have to force people to stick with it to find out why ;) So this is something of a tribute from me.

Very few recognised it, and a lot of people wondered why I "wasn't cosplaying" ;) so there be no photos.

Omg! Nert has cosplay pictures! Yay for costumes that incorperate your camera! And your glasses were brilliant... even if they didn't fold up perfectly! ^__^

I really like this cosplay.

It's been forever since I watched Higurashi but I recognised the character straight away from your photos on the front page. As long as you make sure that your cosplay is accurate and act in character for photos then I think that simple cosplays can be really effective, too ^^
