Gakupo (Setsugetsuka) - Vocaloid


Alcon 2012



Most difficult cosplay I've done so far, by far
Although part way through I'm loving the challenge and doing new techniques and hopefully it will turn out alright ><

EDIT: I really enjoyed making this cosplay, due to all the details in it. I dunno why, complex cosplays are more fun for me to make it seems.

Right going to wear this for Sat of Alcon 2012 hopefully the damage to the wig won't be too visable as the extension as been through a lot the poor thing ;-;
Been meaning to rewear this for a while now so here goes

Wow this is looking gorgeous! Are you hand painting every flower or do you have some sort of stencil?

ZOMBIEfurby posted on 19 May, 2011 - 10:49

Unfortunately there's quite a bit of damage to the top of my straight extension to the wig from multiple wears and detangle sessions so instead it looks like I'll have to be inaccurate and wear my curly extension to Alcon instead especially due to the lack of notice and funds for this con On the plus side that one suits me a lot more :D

Everything is tacked and ready, just need to machine sew it, nearly there now =D

18th May 2011


Ok A lot has been done, I'm going to upload some progress pictures soon. 1- De frizzed the wig with hot water method 2- Made the kimono base and around half way through painting the pattern 3- The sleeve is around 90% done 4- Tacked the hakama, need to dye it once more, add pleats and machine sew 5- The tops all tacked, just need to machine sew I need a sewing machine so I dont have to wait til I go around Batshiz's to sew darnit money! And I'll be starting the Obi one Friday, since I get paid then and currently I cant afford the fabric. I shall manage this .__.

Hair piece

Only cost me £2 so far :'D Basically it's a larger hair clip [ the big purple one ] and then I hot glued the black feathers which I plucked from the feather boa but there's no gaps in that so no harm done ;3 Then i just glued on the smaller flowers which were meant to be hair bobbles. Just need to add some purple feathers to it now :3

20th February 2011


After the last con this wig was extremely tangled. I brushed it out and this is what it looks like. I need to get the proper material to tie the wig properly I have bought this spray called mane n tails and it should fix out my frizz problem. I'll probs post a review on it. <- Current wig status. [one side looks shorter and wider than the other due to it resting on the t.v.]
