Kagura (Chinese dress version) - Gintama


AmeCon 2008




This was originally supposed to be a cosplay for a Gintama photoshoot group (which is yet to happen...at some point in our lives) and to be honest I wasn't too keen on doing it. Kagura is not my favourite Gintama character plus I don't really like her fashion sense. (not like there is any fashion sense in gintama as a whole XD)The only thing I'm looking forward to it carrying aroung a pretty parasol =3

Anyway, I wasn't gonna use this for anything other than the photoshoot, but then I realised that my chances of getting Miakis finished properly in time for Ame are slim and I need something to wear on Saturday afternoon/night time XD So if all goes well, I'll be that cute little girl in red with a parasol and a mind of a gorilla. XD

So far...nothing's been done for this cosplay. I'm waiting for the parasol to arrive and bought bits and pieces for the dress (which is gonna be made by Hitachiin aka Gin-chan!) I have yet to find the right boots and get/modify the wig.

{Update} First version of the cosplay is complete...Now we just need to re-do everything XD The parasol is perfect~ I hope it will last till Ame XD If not, then oh well. (Should really be more careful with it) The boots were in the far corner of my wardrobe all along, so that was easy. I really like the colour of this wig. Probably the most interesting wig I own actually. Although the black hair pieces are such a pain in the butt >.< After a long period of thinking we ended up simply clipping them on. NOT a good idea. First of all we clipped them in the wrong place XD And second, they kept sliding, falling off, not letting me move around properly. Guh, as soon as I got home from the first photoshoot, the wig got taken apart and will stay that way until I can be bothered to attach them permanently.
As for the main part of the cosplay - the dress - even though we weren't sure about it, it looks really good in the photos XD Still needs either taken in or re-made but it's not like we don't have time before the convention. So yeah, thank you Hita~~ *hugs*

[Update 16/05/08] Nearly done attaching the black hair things to be wig. So bothersome. But with the help of my wonderful assistant, Shin-chan, it's nearly there~ The outfit as a whole still needs bits and pieces done but I'm so sick of having it hang around in the 'in progress' section, I'm moving it to complete, whether it likes it or not!

[Update 28/05/08] Longest costume description I've ever written...Well, the wig is now 100% done! Tested it out at Expo last weekend and it's all goooood. I can now run around in it without worrying about losing half of the hairstyle in the process. Wooooo! Just need the exams to go away so we can get a decent shoot.

Lol no but it should be. If I ever get really rich I'll buy a truck and decorate it with Justaways...Hell, I'll buy a justaway factory! *slight obsession there* Oh don't ask what a Justaway is. You shall find out in your own time. XD
