Yusuke Kitagawa (Fox) - Persona 5

In Progress

Hibanacon 2018


 


So yeah, im addicted to this game. I love everything about it and my heart cries over all the characters. I also considered Ann/Panther but as I went along Yusuke became my favorite character and his costume looks way easier and comfier :) Maybe Panther later on, but for now I wanna be Fox boy!

I am currently sourcing the fabrics and stuff. The jumpsuit should mostly be straightforward but selecting the fabric is gonna be the tricky part as I am kind of on a budget and going to order some samples. I am yet to decide how to do the kitsune mask.

To be honest a real seller for choosing this costume is because I'd get to stuff my face in faux fur and have a fluffy tail to stroke <3

Mask 1

I am having a lot of fun with this so far. My fiance let me borrow one of his masks from his collection that was simmilar to a kitsune mask (its more cat shape) so I wrapped it in clingfilm to protect it and made a masking tape base to work from. I used foil to stuff the curves and rolled some into little sausages to extend the ears and nose part and wrapped them with even more tape. When I was happy with the shape I covered it with another layer of cling film before applying paper mache. I havent used this stuff since I was little so I had a lot of fun preparing and working with it. There are 2 layers so far but when it dries im gonna finalise the shape before adding many more layers :)

Painting

I am having a lot of fun with this! Its a pretty long task but its going a bit faster than I thought. The colour is turning exactly how I wanted! Gonna wait for it to dry before carrying on as there is more fabric than there is space availible lol

Sash 2

Im still waiting for the paints so I arranged the masking tape onto the sash to make the stripes even. Even after all my complaining with Ladybug I am caught up in the perpetual paint malarkey again x'D

Welp!

I wasnt having much luck with getting some samples and found some fabric near my workplace that would have visually be perfect but would be too thick and warm to wear for my liking so I had bit the bullet and gone for PVC. Its a little thinner and glossier than what I would have liked but I worked with it in the past and had fun with it. I have some fabric in the closet that I plan to use as a mock up. HOPEFULLY Ill have some more in white that could be salvaged as what I brought today took a big dent to my account ^^; The wig arrived the other day and will need styling and the boots are being broken into quite well. Not the comfiest but will do ^^ In between my own work I had to make some shorts for my Partner's Haru. Brought some fabric paint on ebay for the sash. I will be using Jaquard's in Navy blue as that brand worked a treat when I painted the spots on Ladybug and lasted so well ^^

Sash

I had to take a break yesterday to finish cleaning my sewing room and somehow had a hour or so to spare to begin making the sash this afternoon. I found some thick cotton yesterday and cut them into long rectangles. I sewn them together in pairs and folded them down before finalising them. I may actually make the belt one piece crossed rather than two crossed over. I just had enough time and paint left over to practice a method to paint the stripes.

Boots

Arrived while I was at work today so it was a nice surprise when I arrived home. They could do with some slight loosening up but ill blast them with a hair dryer to set them in a little. They even came in with a little bag so they will be so easy to pack for cons.

Wig ordered

Lily in Midnight Blue from Coscraft <3 I love their Lily wigs so I am mega excited for it to come!

Tail

I left the top unsealed as I will need to make the gold topper and sash and it would give me easy access if I need to alter the shape. Faux fur from ebay. Turns out I did indeed have enough stuffing so thats a bonus. Red tape is baste stitched so I can see how it would look.

Mission start

At the moment I am currently gathering materials and have a few samples for then jumpsuit ordered. I really like the look of pleather but I am gonna see what else is gonna work. Due to the bagginess and seam alignments I am gonna consider making a mock up before diving in. I have a rough blueprint in my head. For the mask I have been considering either Paper clay or Worbla and EVA foam. Thankfully either way I have the supplies ready in my craft room but gonna look into more tutorials and see from there. The fur for the tail arrived today and it would be a nice little thing to get be to dive into this project :) Might be running low on stuffing as I used a lot of it for my fiance's Zidane tail last July. I have some boots that are on the way but to be honest that is the part I am dreading the most XD I just really hate boot shopping and got a size bigger just in case.
