Simon (Post Timeskip/Final) - Gurren Lagann


AmeCon 2008




A friend of mine did Kamina at Ame' 07, I thought then it would be fun to do a timeskip Simon, since then a couple of people have asked me to group with them.

The jacket for this, at the time, was the hardest thing I'd tackled for several reasons, chief amongst them is that my sewing maching took an abject hatred to the blue material I used for most of the costume and refused to sew it for more than about an inch. Net result, an awful lot of that jacket was handsewn.

Goggles were looking good, then they broke before I even went to the con so I have some not quite so good looking ones. I may have to remake them sometime, or more tempting is to try and make some star glasses.

Perhaps the best bit about this is the way it will billow out behind me when the wind obliges, the light material was half chosen as an experiment to see if I could create this effect and it works beautifully.

All in all a great fun costume to have though, oh and <3 the gold material for the cuffs.
