Ken (School Uniform) - Persona 3





I blame Redkun for this!!!

His Protagonist cosplay got me curious about P3. After looking into it I got really excited about it coming out, and promptly decided I was going to cosplay as Ken. I'm working on the game now and I love it *_* Although, Redkun still wants me to cosplay as Aigis XD (I still haven't met her yet... I'm still really early on~)

UPDATE 07/Mar/08
I bought a new base jacket, school trousers, running shoes, orange hoodie, ribbon... EVERYTHING I need for Ken save for some socks and the evoker today. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an orange zip-up hoodie... let alone without any writing on it?! O_O I nearly hard a heart attack when I found one (and so I didn't complain about the £16 price tag XD sigh).
Anyway, I've started altering the jacket tonight. I ripped off the pockets and I've inserted one side of the zipper. Am currently altering the other side of the jacket to get rid of the button holes, which is proving to be rather difficult @_@ [1 hour 15 minutes spent on this, time removed from total as I scrapped this jacket]

UPDATE 12/Mar/08
Scrapped my old jacket after the collar wouldn't sit right and I tried ironing it and for some reason the fabric went SHINY after ironing O_o;; either the iron's dirty or I wasn't meant to iron that fabric... anyway!! I started again with the original base jacket I bought and it's turned out SO GOOD *_* I finished the jacket in 2 hours exactly, and although I didn't plan for it to, it even zips up properly! Also recut the ribbon and painted the edge with clear nail polish to stop it from fraying. :3

UPDATE 13/Mar/08
Finished the shoes and shorts tonight. Styled the wig a bit, but I think I can still make some improvements on it.

UPDATE 14/Mar/08
Made the SEES arm band tonight. I can't believe it took an hour and a half! I'm buying my white socks tomorrow morning. All I have to do now is finish the tiny details on the jacket, replace the drawstring on the orange hoodie and make an evoker or spear. For now I consider it complete since it's wearable, but if I wear it to a convention or another photo shoot I want to finish the small things off!

Aigis would be cool to cosplay, but y'know ... she's a robot XD Kinda hard to pull them off well, imo. Or at least, for me. But yeah, it'll be cool to spot you at Amecon! Hopefully, you'll pop into Auchinawa, too. I'll be there as Minato. It's just a case of getting the Evoker, now ... I'm no good with models DX

But being a robot- and a demon-hunting robot at that- is part of the fun! Looking forward to seeing Ken!

I actually kinda have to ask this. Did I run into you today in Glasgow? There was an MC and Ken and I think it was you two I kinda shouted at like a fanboy ^^;;

Not Glasgow, Edinburgh. And according to your location, I think it was. Wow! Really awesome work, Yuka-san! Can't wait to get my Shinjiro out for Amecon, now. I gotta do as good as your Ken!

Ah, so THAT'S what you said ... couldn't hear for the hat, I'm afraid. I don't live in Edinburgh, but I traveled in for the protest. I'll look into those cosplay meets and see if I can afford it. I've got a LOT to spend on my Kimahri suit, right now ^^;;
