Ikkaku Madarame (Bankai Release) - Bleach


London MCM Expo October 2007

Wildcard Award (sunday)




oct 2007-

This was an amusing / impressive and exhausting costume to make and wear. Each blade was made from 2inch insulation foam and layered with Fiberglass. the counterweights were made from the foam but i ran out of time and fiberglass so i guess thats still to do, the chains i want to re-do also but other than that im pretty happy with this :)

Totally awesome cosplay! I love it when someone totally doesn't compromise based of size/difficulty/cumbersomeness etc and get it so perfect. Great work!
