Sly Cooper
Sly Raccoon

Cosplayer: ToroSonyCat

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

27th October 2011: Almost complete! T-shirt arrived.
Decided that I may make some ears for this cosplay which I wasn't originally planning but I'll see how they look, yay for adding more work at last minute to a cosplay while I'm already very busy..
Expect very last minute complete cosplay photos tomorrow.

25th October 2011: Hat Hat arrived!
Now I'm just waiting for the t-shirt.. which will HOPEFULLY arrive tomorrow.

21st October 2011: T-shirt and hat I am sooooo last minute ahhh -stress-

The t-shirt that I dyed faded too much after the dye so I found a new one along with a hat on Ebay and ordered them today. They SHOULD come in time (2-3 days estimated delivery on both) but I really am terrible for leaving this WAY too late.

I've learnt my lesson, at least. I need to stop relying on finding the items I need in person and just go to Ebay.

I just have to hope nothing goes wrong and that I get these in time or else I'll have major problems.

16th October 2011: Mask and t-shirt Made the mask and dyed the t-shirt (I couldn't find one in the right colour so I just dyed a white one. I had to use that dye on shoes for my Nepeta cosplay anyway)

Only thing that I have to worry about now is getting the hat which for some reason is turning out to be pretty hard.

12th October 2011: Boots The boots arrived today!
They aren't perfect ( Especially with the studs at the back.. >< but they look fine from the front so I guess it's ok ) but I'm happy with them! :D

9th October 2011: Boots Okay so I gave up on the boot covers thing and had another look on Ebay for a suitable pair of boots to use.

It was a lot more successful than the last time I looked, even though all of the PERFECT pairs had heels so I had to settle for something that isn't exactly perfect in colour but it will work with some slight modification.

9th October 2011: Finished gloves, working on boots One worn and one un-worn (mostly just so I could take the photo with that hand)
Obviously, they look better worn as you can see.

Working on making the boots which is a really annoying process bluh.

20th September 2011: Belt I made the belt (or rather, modified the base belt) on Sunday, forgot to mention it on here.
I tried to take a photo but it didn't do it any justice.

18th September 2011: Finished red leg bag thingy and the cane I haven't been able to decent picture of the cane yet since it's too huge but I'll try to get one. Here's a picture of the finished red leg bag thingy~ (Ignore the fact that I'm wearing my pajamas..)

The red leg bag thingy has velcro on the strap to go around my leg and the flap of the bag. I probably won't put anything inside of the bag though XD

Today I'll probably work on the belt and fixing the gloves that I messed up..

17th September 2011: . Working on finishing the leg bag thingy now that I have velcro, just taking a break to post this. :33
Hoping to finish the cane too and then I'll work on fixing the gloves tomorrow since I kinda messed them up ><

Stressed about not finishing this cosplay in time for Expo.. ;__;

12th September 2011: Red leg bag thingy progress I'm not even sure what I should call this so I just call it 'red leg bag thingy' XDD

Uuh yeah, I'm gonna have to wait until the weekend to finish this because I need some velcro to put on the flap and on the leg strap thingy but this is it for now.

To be honest, this only took me about 10 minutes to do with a cardboard box, some fabric and fabric glue XD But I think it turned out pretty well :D

28th August 2011: Its progress.. I'm kind of really far behind on this but still hoping to finish it for October! It's not much but I did manage to buy some blue gloves when I went shopping for this :D

11th June 2011: I need to get back to working on this! I haven't even finished the cane yet, it's still sitting in my room unfinished ><

I'm hoping to get back to working on it soon! I want to get it finished in advance for October.

Also.. not really related to cosplay progress but.. OMGOMG SLY 4 WAS ANNOUNCED OMGOMG :D

19th April 2011: Cane in progress.. I think this is looking pretty good so far and I thought I'd update this and share it with anyone who is interested.

I'm thinking that I'll make cuts under where it meets the stick and then fold those over for stability and cover with some more gold.. does that make sense? I'm not good at explaining stuff, it works in my head.

The wood on the cane should also be darker but that's just me being fussy, I'll try and find a way to make it darker but if I don't then I think it'll be okay.

I think the length is pretty accurate though, you can't see the whole length in this photo obviously.

15th April 2011: First Journal Entry.. I figured I'd try using this, I doubt I'll be able to keep it up regularly though.

I'm really excited to do this cosplay! :D

I've finished the tail which needs some slight modification because even though it's flexible with wire, it still touches the floor sometimes so I need to make it a little shorter but it is otherwise finished and I'm happy with how it turned out.

I'm currently working on the cane which I'm hoping will turn out as I planned!

For what to wear in terms of trousers I'm going to wear my grey jeans as they're the right colour. But after thinking about it I think it'd be more accurate if I could make some poofy trousers out of the leftover grey fur that I have (I have tons of leftover fur from the tail x__x) to give the proper effect but sadly I'm not skilled enough for that so the jeans will have to do. I can dream, eh?

Hoooly crap I can't wait to see this :D Definitely adding it to my watchlist! I only wish I was going to October expo now so I could see it in person :( My sister and I are planning/in the process of making Carmelita and Neyla and it's great to see another Sly fan on CI <3

I don't really go to London Expos anymore but I do go to Midlands each time it's on! :) Unfortunately my sister (who you can see has commented on this, haha) has already planned a Kingdom Hearts group for 2012's Midlands expo, so she's out. I'm not actually planning anything for it, though, so if you were going to that I could maybe bring Neyla... :3
