Rankigu matsumoto

Cosplayer: weirdhead

Variant: shinigami costume

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

14th April 2011: stuff left ok well i got my costume which btw only cos 20 quid on ebay so... win
i got fake eyelashs that work pretty well along with foundation which is why im thinking its all the makeup i'll need but i want others opinon on that on
the body suit didnt real plan out the colour is way too off so it looks like my best bet is shaving myself well at least my chest and arms still not sure about cleavage im thinking either tape or nothing and just have the collar higer up
got to buy the sandals and going to buy a toy ninja sword i'll paint it over
dont know weither to make my own luitenate bagde or use the one provided with the costume which is kinda dinky
got a corst and i want to see how the costume looks with it because without it to be honest im a rectangle and even if i tie the costume tight it dose do much if not nothing at all so odds are a corset would help and i'll put the photos of me in costume with the corset underneith to compare and then i'll decide if hip pads are nessersaray
i have a wig though i am having a lot trouble with it and see how my is rougthly the same lenght i am strongly concidering spray dye

well i think thats every thing anyone who reads this say what ya think and any ideas that spring to mind thanks

yeah they're fake alright but the way i found that works for me is putting the glue on your eyelid then putting on the fake eyelashes instead of trying to fit the glue onto the eyelashes

Looks great (even if you are in my would-be-costume :P)!!!

You know I reckon you could even use your own hair if you are still struggling with the wig! It looks nice and feminine and curly! You could just get a spray on dye or something :P

Looks good to me. Even the balloon boobs work. I guess cuz Rankigu Matsumoto is such a big girl.

I would say well done on your first crossplay. :)

Just one. Make a Katana prop for your cosplay. Props weapons are awesome :D they Really make you feel in character. And you can practice some cool poses for when people take photos. Just make it lightweight and unable to hurt anyone for real - you can have so much fun.

DId you cosplay Rankigu at the Midlands MCM Expo 2011?

Oh yeah some nit picks, if you want more of a critique - remember the mirror reverses things when you are dressing..so eg wear the bow on your right side to make it the same way as the ref pic. Also yes make the brown badge with Japanese writing pinned to the bow tails.
But your cosplay looks good, honestly. :)

Oh the thing at the top says Worn At: Midlands MCM Expo 2011 - which was in Feb.

This looks brilliant!!! You really do pull her off :P

Which is very impressive, since she's not exactly an easy first cosplay!

I wish you all the luck at Expo XD
