|Cost :||£30 ish|
|Time Taken :||20 hours?|
|My first ever cosplay! I think it turned out pretty good for my first try and I do hope I can do alot better in the future :) |
Anyway, R!Syaoran is totally awesome and needs more love! I don't think the costume is 100% accurate (trousers could have been taken up more?) but it really didn't show much. It was fun wearing the eye patch for the day but I had a terrible habit of folding it up while walking around and then forgetting to put it back down when I was asked for photo's! I'm so sorry! XD
The sword was not made by me, it was made by the wonderful zerocool1062007. Thank you so much for making it for me at such short notice! :D I did however, do all of the detailing on it myself. This includes the top of the handle, the tassles and all the stuff on the guard and the scabbard.
I did get the tattoo's made up, but had problems with it before the expo and decided not to bother with them.
This is cosplay is now retired (and will infact be re-made one day)

Spray paint stinks! (Posted 17th June 2009)
...Well it does! D:
Okay, I am finishing off the scabbard because I'll be taking the sword with me for other R!Syaoran cosplays! So it's currently in the process of being spray painted green and then I'll do the final details with good old foam! Then it shall be complete! >:D
London MCM Expo (Posted 27th May 2009)
Yaaaay! I made it! XD Awww, I had SO much fun!! I'll definately be going again! :D And I'd also like to say a HUGE thank you to my Syaoran Clone who I took all those pictures with! I won't say your name as you may not want me giving it out :) We shall take even MORE pictures next time! :D
I'm currently in two minds as to whether I should finish off my sword or not. Yes, I know it looks complete but I'd really like to have the scabbard the right colour, green, instead of black and add all of the details on it... hmmm... =/ We'll see.
Done!! (Posted 21st May 2009)
Hurray! Syaoran is now done!!! After getting my sword from Aaron who very kindly made it for me I have been running around like crazy trying to put everything on it that I wanted XD I like how it has turned out :)
Unfortunately, I won't be having the tattoo's done anymore :( The temporary tattoo paper I brought is really stupid and we couldn't figure out how to use it ¬_¬ But never mind, The costume works just as well with or without it.
I also now hate a certain super glue bottle! It has hurt my thumb very much from squeezing it! >_<
Nearly there! (Posted 10th May 2009)
First journal entry! XD
Okay, so the collar has now been attached to the top! Hurray! And I I think I did a pretty good stitch job if I don't say so myself XD Pictures coming soon~ I've also remembered that I wanted to take the black trousers I'm using up a bit, they are meant to be slightly short on Syaoran after all =/ I'm going to see if I can get my mum to do that for me >_>
The tattooing is also coming along nicely! I just need to make it less pixely and make sure they're the right size before printing them out! I hope I have enough temporary tattoo paper! *panic*
