Ok changing around my Cosplay Island a bit (Posted 6th February 2011)
Ok this character profile is going to be reserved now for the "I've come this far" shots that really make the difference in the last 4 or so years I've been cosplaying Sephiroth. Feel free to have a look around.
Another May Expo Gone...(2010) (Posted 31st May 2010)
Cosplaying as Jenova taught me one of many things, it was a lesson learned in extreme endurance. You don't want to see the state of my forehead after the pressure of tight heavy helm + wig - owie.
So having said that, going to take (at least) a year to remodel/upgrade the Sephiroth cosplay. I just would have enjoyed it a lot more in a cosplay a tiny bit more comfortable. But there is a lot of work to be done to get there!!
Stage 2 Nearly Completed (Posted 4th September 2009)
Oks wig is now officially styled and ready for the bangs (which are still waist length) to be trimmed up to size. Once that's done I need to try wig, binding, harness and pauldrons all on to get a good impression of how the final cosplay will look.
Waiting for leather pants (from Ebay) to arrive in the post. Then it's the usual routine of buying contact lenses, make up (I'm going to experiment with fake top eyelashes soon!) and making sure I don't forget my leather gloves this time!
Binding? (Posted 2nd September 2009)
Oks guys Cosplay Island has a picture limit so the majority of my progress pics go up on DA now : http://jenovaboi.deviantart.com
I'd like to draw your opinions please to my attempt at binding with nothing but flesh-tone tights. I'm not uber comfortable with it so please comment carefully (if you'd like) however a couple of mate said it looked good so far.
Stage 1 Complete (Posted 1st July 2009)
Alright so I didn't intend to start working straight away on the need-to-be-repaired's for MCM Oct. However I have had at least two offers for more photoshoot's to be done before then and so now because I'm just so much of a cosplay addict now that this had to be started. (I blame you all, boyf expected me to be winding down on the Seph-thing....naaaaaa)
So....wig is bought from CosWorx, thewigcompany.com have an offer on wig head + clamp stand so bought that too. Just got to wait for it to get here and then there is the delicate task of (attmepting) to transplant the bangs from my old wig onto the new one. In short, I'm dreading it I think I'm probably going to have to make new bangs from scratch but we will see how it goes. Will upload photo's as and when!
Goodbye MCM May 2009 Sephi-wig, I know we have had a lot of hot, sweaty time together but simply...I have to move on...
End of MCM Expo May 2009 (Posted 26th May 2009)
As much of an amazing success this cosplay (I thought) was for MCM EXPO MAY 2009 the status of this is now back on "In Progress" as this is a large very much constantly improving cosplay. For October I intend to wear the same cosplay but the wig has officially had it! (it has lasted a long time)
After MCM Oct this cosplay will be going into storage for over a year and I will work on a new one for 2010. After 2010, I do plan to repair/replace a great deal of this cosplay (coat, cross-strap detail, leather pants, boots) but hoping it doesn't take me a further two years to complete again!
