Lag Seeing (manga cover illustration version) - Tegami Bachi (Letter Bee)

In Progress




I started my costume by buying the majority of it online. I know some will think that lazy but i'm pretty new to this and this costume requires a fair bit of tayloring and there is no way I could manage that. I'm just being practical.

There was a couple of makers that did a costume for this character but one of them looked the wrong colour to me (far to bright a blue). I had it custome made for my size and it fits great. There are some parts of it that I knew really wouldn't be what I wanted (the hat, belt, scarf, holster etc...) but I can replace them with something I find more suitable. So there is still plenty for me to make and customize myself.

Because I don't look anything like my character, and also because my age is catcing up with me, I plan on making a kigurumi mask that will resemble the character (so I will have to make a hat to fit the mask). I also have to get and customize leather gloves, make a gun, holster, bag and letter props.

Well, I haven't done anything so far exept order it of Ebay. But I hope to be adding plenty of self made props so that should keep me busy. The jacket isn't 100% perfect, but it is a lot better than I could do myself.

Thanks! That's really great to hear some positive feedback. At this point I could be either Gauche or lag. I must admit that this gun is really fun to make. I'd better hurry up and get it finished before I et bored and leave it uncompleted like I usually do.

THIS is what we need to see more of on Cosplay Island. It's nice finding these gems and a bit of effort going in amongst everything else.
