Shinichi Okazaki (Manga artwork) - NANA




I thoroughly, utterly love the Nana manga, and Shin is equally my favourite alongside Nana herself.
Tried and failed to get the proper lighter (disappeared off the face of the planet, or I'd have to sell a kidney for it) so anime knock-off it is! Shame it doesn't work though :(

2011 - Only a year late, ahem. Chosen a different outfit, made some tartan trews & top and picked up accessories from Camden. I still can't find the right wig, so going with the 2nd movie colours of silver/grey-esque.

Zomg, I actually finished a costume before a con? Shocking...

OMG! nana cosplay! I've wanted to do a version of Nana Osaki for a while now. Also Mikako from gojinko Monogatari and possibly Miwako or Isabella from Paradise Kiss too! You'll make a cool Shin.

Thanks! I love him so much, even if he is a bit of a man-whore XD You'll have to let me know when you do Nana :) I'm currently collecting all the bits for him, but not sure when he's set for yet (if I'm lucky with shipping, perhaps Ame!)

Oh hey, I remember you! Your costume was AMAZING! I didn't get to say hi properly, because you were helping somebody out before their shoot, but I did take a secret photo while you were doing it. I'll try and remember to send it to you sometime if you like. <3

Thank you all so much! I hope to do him with a more accurate wig soon! (When Ebay stops failing me, grrrrrr!) @Pippin4242 Sad I didn't get to speak to you now that I know you were the one that recognised me as Nana the year before! I was probably flashing light in Amy-Lou's face or something at the time :P I'd love to see the photo if you have it! Thank you for your lovely comments :)

Progress Journal

5th August 2010

Outfit decided

Finally picked a comfy outfit from the manga, just normal modded clothes (as usual, just shredded and studs added!)

Only thing is that there's been a muck-up with my wigs, so slim chances of it arriving before Amecon. So, probably gonna be an easy costume for Minami then, unless the postal gods smile upon me!

25th July 2010

This counts as progress, right?

I'll probably have to make the clothes depending on which outfit I choose, but I ordered the staple bits of his outfit off Ebay - they came surprisingly quickly!

Yeah, wish I could afford the real version of the lighter - but £3 off Ebay was easier than getting a small mortgage ;)

I bought the boot version of the rocking horse as I'm way more likely to wear them normally - will add the fringe bit depending on what outfit I do of his and the rest would be hidden by the trousers.
