Dan Hibiki (Alternate costume) - Street Fighter IV




(See description for my 1st costume Dan)

I'm going for a change this time. I wanna be the padded up Saikyo warrior Dan, in all his alternate costumed glory! There's also gonna be a Street Fighter group at this October's Expo, so I'm really looking forward to this one!

Thanks for the comments guys. I think the best part of my Dan costume was on the Sunday in regular Dan (minus the wig due to malfunction, but wore a headband instead) at the SFIV tournament. I got the crowd cheering for me, and was probably more popular there than Matt Mercer who was also playing!

It was great to see the Dan in Ayacon. XD

Thanks man, I think not only does everyone love it when I am Dan, but I love it too. It gives me good excuse to tear out my voicebox shouting the Japanese cry of OOOOOOYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAJJJJJJJIIIIIIIII!!!!!!! as the English dub of Dan in Street Fighter IV is nowehere near as loud as his Alpha voice.

Updates for Expo

Just days away from Expo, I've made some minor changes to Dan. As I was planning to get a more accurate helmet (which failed btw, I'm sticking with Pink for teh lulz), I found an awesome pair of blue gloves which go with the body armour. YAHOO!

For those going to Expo, I hope to meet you there for a Saikyo time; and to all the Street Fighter Group, I'm gonna be ready to take you ALL on...

To all those who weren't at Aya...

So, I made the debut of the Alternate Dan costume, and to my knowledge I'm the only person in the world to have cosplayed this costume yet. In fact, it was really fun walking around and getting punched all the time, cause I didn't feel a thing. The costume was also more mobile than I imagined, as I have worn armor in the past and it wasn't easy.

I wore Alternate Dan in the evening of Saturday at AyaCon, and got loads of pictures taken of me. A personal favourite picture of mine was just after the masquerade, when we bumped into a Sakura cosplayer and got a quick photoshoot (see left). Everyone loved the costume, especially when I joined in some matches of Street Fighter IV at the games room.

On the Sunday I wore 1st costume Dan, but sadly my wig got crushed under the helmet and was ruined, so I wore some bandages around my head to pretend I was injured. I joined in the Street Fighter IV tournament and stayed in character throughout, especially since I play a pretty mean Dan in the game. DO YOU WANNA SEE ANOTHER SUPER TAUNT!

Fun times, fun times.

AAANYWAYS, onto the point of this journal post. I'm taking the costume to October's Expo, where I will be joining the Street Fighter Group. Be seeing you there, and remember - stay Saikyo!

Dan Hibiki.

Yattaze... OYAJIII!!! (I did it, father!)

YEAH! Dan's done! Real looking forward to AyaCon and the Street Fighter group cosplays now! And yes, I will be wearing the same costume to October's Expo!

Finshing off!

Woohoo! ID came through the post, so on my day off tomorrow I'm gonna be finishing off costumes for AYACON!!!!

All I need for Dan is a new wig, since I'm useless at keeping them in good condition I have to buy a new one every time.

The waiting game...

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I've put all of my costumes on hold for now (even though they're virtually done) until I finish getting an ID to get into AyaCon. Should arrive by the end of this week, then I'll get onto finishing these things off.

As for Dan, I'll be bringing both costumes of him up to AyaCon if I am coming. If not, It'll be a definite for October's Expo!

Our story so far..

So, bought the armour today, things are looking good. The helmet's not exact (should have a bit going across the nose and mouth), but I couldn't resist wearing a PINK helmet! The chestpeice is a tad on the small size, but I'm not complaining about that cause otherwise it's perfect!

'til next time, Saikyo followers! YAHOO!
