Genesis Rhapsodos


Costume Information

Cost : Er, about 50 euros I think.
Time Taken : Ages

This was never really meant as a serious costume, but more a one-off.

About a year ago I decided on very short notice to go to a small anime/manga convention in the Netherlands, but didn't want to go costume-less. So then I had a week to throw together a costume. Then I found a coat at a second hand shop that would make a good start for a Genesis costume, so that decided that!

The coat I adapted, the trousers were second hand, I spray-painted the gloves and the rest is hand-made (sleeveless turtleneck, wide belt, boot covers). My sister helped me make the book cover.

After the convention I made the earring and a few months ago I also made the sword.

The sword was the most fun and satisfying to make! I'm definitely happy with the result.
