Son Goku (Default outfit) - Saiyuki




I can't believe I don't have this costume down yet. ^^; Goku is my absolute favourite character, he's so sweet and adorable, yet can kick butt if he wants to. My friends say I'm really like him (hence the nickname 'Monkey') and I love him so much. I've always wanted to cosplay him, maybe one day in all his outfits, and all his different variations (Seiten Taisen, Gaiden, etc.) but for now I'm sticking with his traditional outfit.

Oh wow it's looking so good, it makes me want to rewatch Saiyuki again. It's scary how much you suit him :O (do you have a Sanzo to annoy the hell out of?)

Nocturnal Blossom posted on 9 February, 2009 - 20:18
Looking so good! You've been progressing with this in secret, I bow before your superior skillz! I just wanna smoosh you, it's too adorable <3

Hehe thanks for all the nice comments guys! I'm really super-excited about wearing this cosplay, Goku's one of my all-time favourite characters, it feels so good to be able to get the outfit done! Tak: Well, at the May Expo there is going to be a Saiyuki group going - a Hakkai, Gojyo, Reve is going as Kougaiji, and TWO Sanzos! So I think there'll be plenty of people there for me to annoy! (Though both Sanzos are threatening to bring paper fans, so I'm going to not get too close! :P)

Oh dear, you best keep the Gojyo away from me XD. I don't get many anime crushes, but you've got to love a water demon *_* And I think you should take your chances against some fans over guns!

Nyoi-Boi (Part 1)

OKay, this is mostly my dad's work, but I figured I should write up how he did it in case anyone else should like to know.

Right, obviously the base of the Nyoi-Boi is made of a wooden broom pole (I actually stole it from a broken broom at my work). When given to my dad, he sawed it into three seperate peices and then drilled a penny-sized hole all the way through each peice of the broom pole.

This is then the tricky part, as I wanted the Nyoi-Boi to be both a staff when I wanted it, and then be able to twist it so that I could seperate it into three seperate peices, just as Goku's Nyoi-boi does depending on how he wishes to fight. So me and my dad found an old lamp that no longer worked in the house. The pole is in three parts which you screw together to make it into one tall lamp. Using the same idea, dad glued the three seperate pecies of the lamp into each of the drilled holes of the broom.

Now you can screw each pole together to make it into a single staff, or into three peices. Currently me and my dad are now trying to discuss a way on attaching the chain between the peices of the staff. Once we've worked out that, essentially the main work is done, it'll be the decorating that's next! :D

The shoulder armour was rather fiddly to make, and took me a while to work out how on earth I actually wanted to make it.

The base of the armour is made out of craft foam funnily enough, with cream fabric glued onto one side of it. The green around the edges is quite simply green bias binding, added on each side of the armour. The random bone bits were put together out of papier mache and then painted cream.

To make sure the armour would actually pin to my clothes I added poppers to each corner of the armour and then also to the undershirt that I will be wearing. I then glued the three bone bits on either end of the armour and then folded over the top of the armour so that it had the 3D look that the shoulder armour has in the anime and manga.

They're a little fiddly to put on but when you wear them they're very funny! I shall have to see about doing a full picture when the rest of the shirt part is finished :)

Gyaaaah! Goku! Why must your hair be so thick?!!! I'd say Goku's hair is in the 45% made section so far. The fringe is all styled and done (I styled it weft by weft - meticulous much? T.T) and then I tried to start work on the main body of the wig, namely the silly side parting which doesn't exist on these scruffy wigs. So, essentially I had to make one.

This involved using the real hair extensions I had left over from my Seiten Taisen extensions and using then as added wefts in the hair. I've sewn in about four wefts now, thankfully the hair is so close to the wig colour I don't think anyone could tell the difference! Now I just need the hair to stay in place while I style the random sticky-upy spikes that Goku has. I think this wig is going to possibly be the most work that's going to be put into this cosplay haha.

9th November 2008


Got the wig - woo! Another one of the scruffys from Cosworx - I think I'm gonna end up getting a collection of these wigs (used the same one to style the wig for Neku too, just in a different colour obviously). Also bought some long hair extensions and have sewed them onto clips, so they can be taken off or added to the wig depending on what version of Goku I decide to do (so I can be normal Goku one day, then add the extentions and be demon-Goku(!) the next ^^.

Haven't styled the wig yet, but will do asap! I can't wait!

Previous Entires

[9th June]
More playing with craft foam resulted in me creating the gold bits on Goku's boots. I didn't want to glue them permenantly to the boots, so like the diadem they're adjustable and removable too. I want to start work on the main outfit soon... when I have money that is ^^;

[20th April]
Yeah, I was bored today and had nothing to do for a few hours and seeing as my Haruhi and Kiriyama cosplays were both completed I decided to go and crack out some of the craft foam and make new cosplay! So yup, Goku's diadem is finished - its amazing what a little craft foam and gold leaf can do! - the whole thing is adjustable, depending on the wig (when I get round to getting it).
