Gokudera Hayato (Mafia cover splash) - Katekyo Hitman REBORN!


Auchinawa 2008




Well i changed my mind from Varia arc Goku-kun to a version from one of the chapter front covers (meeep i can't remember what one....i think it's just after Chrome's first appearance....)

Costume consists of:

1 silver wig
black tie
black suit jacket/trousers
white shirt
white belts
chain belts
several sticks of dynamite
fake cigarette
belt buckle

I wasn't sure what to use for the boots as i was going to wear my Docs.
But given that I'm only 5"2 and Gokudera's pretty tall, decided to go for my platform boots after seeing a cosplayer on cosplay.com do a similar thing.
never thought of wearing gothic lolita platforms for a male character but it worked so well for her and i have the exact same boots so here's hoping ^^

I know Yuka's wearing her TYL gokudera and 'chelle is going as kid lambo....methinks some interesting photo's could happen since 'chelle is nearly double the height of me and Yuka.....

Also to make dynamite holsters, here's an idea: get a black elastic http://www.mydrafthorse.com/cfwebstore/images/products/Harness/english%20girth.jpg something like that and make a copy of the elastic but in normal black fabric. Lay the elastic on top of the cotton replica and sew a line across them every 3.5cm or so (depends how wide your dynamite sticks are). It has to be a length that the dynamite sticks can slot through without expanding the elastic too much and without dropping out too easily. That's an idea, but I'm sure there's an easier way LOL.

Yay Primark! Lol Great place to look for cosplay bits! Sounds like this is coming along pretty well! Thank you for your comments and I'm sorry for such a late reply to your questions! ~I've had my stripy jumper for years; it’s a wardrobe regular that came in handy for my Bel cosplay lol I got in Affleck’s palace in Manchester if that's any help to you? ~My Gokudera Dynamite is just thick rolled up card, covered with paper with spray painted silver end bits. I made Fimo disks to go inside the ends that I put holes in one end and glued the string to from the inside. But I guess you don't need help with that anymore as you've made some already and they are looking great :3 ~Um I just randomly found that pic on the net. It's part of a whole series of them and they are all very cute!
