Kazuma Kiryu (Both suit and topless) - Yakuza (Ryu ga gotoku) also known as Like a Dragon


Well I am getting a tattoo and because the tattoo is from a video game I love so much, I thought I'd make a cosplay to go with it but will be youtube and meetup exclusive so you'll only see on youtube and meetups lol

first am gonna get the Tattoo done and then I'll get started with the cosplay^__^

I know that I ahve to wait months for the tattoo because we only have one local tattoo parlour in my area and just so happens to be famous for Japanese tattoos, all I can say is I am looking forward to the tattoo^___^

Apointment booked, first tattoo session will cost £300 (Holy Mutha Fucker) and that is for 5 hours just doing the outline.

I can imagine how many more sessions it will take just to do the shading in and colouring inbetween the lines lol

UPDATE - well I got started with the tattoo, it toke 4 hours just to make the outline of the top half of the tattoo, next we will be colouring it in and then after that we'll focus on the bottom half^__^

UPDATE - well I started colouring it in, apparently I'll be going through 2 hour sittings and will starting accelerating the progress starting July if I cannot make it to London film comic con since I'm saving up now.

UPDATE - scales done, now to colour in the head, gonna take 3 hour sittings since the tattooist is willing to do so and am up for the challenge^_^

UPDATE - we started the colour, looking real good already^_^

UPDATE - well we got to the point where the colouring in is finished, we just need to make the outlines stand out more and then we go to my ass on the bottom half^___^

UPDATE - Top half of this Tattoo is complete, I gots enough done to do the cosplay at the expo in May 2011^__^
I found the suit on ebay from Korea which looks really high quality for £80 and a great wig which is cheap lol I'm gonne use fake tan to do the six pack, I just hope it won't be cold when I cospaly as Kaz chan lol

UPDATE - I started on the ass and it hurt like hell, I was told to try and not get tense but my ass reflexes won't let me lol

UPDATE - Well I guess I cannot upload anymore pictures because there has apparently been so many complaints from alot of people who is on there periods pissing out blood 24/7. but once my youtube video is complete, I shall put it up on the description.

UPDATE - well we started outlining on the tail, we did so much progress that we started on the other ass cheek aswell, unfortanatly I cannot show but I am showing yer the leg though^__^

UPDATE - we made a start on colouring on the right cheeck but since I don't want anyone going on there periods, I won't be posting up a picture of the progress.

UPDATE - I got my Suit from Korea today and it fits really well,I need a Burgundy shirt and wig and Yakuza shoes and am set for cosplaying as Kazuma at expo^__^

UPDATE - my tattoo is finally complete^_____^ last sitting was half hour and only paid £10^__^

Awesome! the half sleeves will look ace! How many more sittings do u expect u have left of this back piece? And as for Melona's wig, i was going to use a long wig, and make some pink hands to match, attatch them to the underside of the wig, and have them coming down and attatching to a bra. lol.

Ranma1-2 posted on 24 July, 2010 - 20:03
Good idea - yes Redheads.. I would LOVE to cosplay Jessica Rabbit someday. ^_^

You're having it on your ass too? OWCH! Still, it looks awesome :3

I don't know if it's breaking any actual rules, but I think a picture of your ass on cosplay island is a bit inappropriate.... |:

PixiePopNixie posted on 22 February, 2011 - 22:44
That is some dedication you got going there!! But it is an awesome tattoo!!!

Ashika posted on 23 February, 2011 - 00:38
I agree with Crazedteensie. You could have taken a photo of just your cheek rather than the one you have uploaded. Younger people use this website and I'm sure older people don't particularly want to see that either. However! Great tattoo and I applaud your dedication!!

ryaoki posted on 23 February, 2011 - 10:32
Lmao fuck everything mate, taking a picture of your ass has to be the most legendary and FUN THING anyones done on this site for a while I SALUTE YOU CAPTAIN CRACK Ahhhh...legendary... lol

Numta posted on 9 March, 2011 - 00:41
